Support yourself inside and out with this humble plant. We take a look at five benefits of aloe vera and how to make the most of this healthy all-rounder.

 

What is it?

Aloe vera is a succulent plant that grows in tropical climates around the world. The long slender leaves contain a nutrient packed gel commonly used in skincare, cosmetics, supplements and juices.

Here are five therapeutic benefits of this soothing substance.

 

1. Digestive support

The aloe gel internally calms and soothes our mucous membranes, assisting digestive health and supporting the growth of beneficial gut bacteria. In addition, it is a gentle liver tonic. Optimum health starts with good digestion.

 

2. Immune support

Vitamins and minerals found in aloe vera help support and maintain healthy immune function.

 

3. Contains healthy enzymes

The enzymes found in aloe vera help to breakdown fats and sugars in the body supporting digestive health, and healthy weight management.

 

4. Nutrient rich

Vitamins A, B, C, E, zinc, amino acids, choline and magnesium support healthy muscles and recovery, digestion and nervous system function. They also promote cellular healing, glowing skin, detoxification and antioxidant support.

 

5. Supports Radiant skin

Enzyme bradykinase, hormones auxin and gibberellin, and natural sugars like polysaccharides help to support immune function and promote healthy, radiant skin. Its healing powers date back to Cleopatra’s days, when the Egyptian ruler used aloe vera on her skin. Soft hydrated skin like this gorgeous leading lady? Yes, please!
