5. Antiviral activity.
Within the mucilage layer of the leaf which surrounds the inner gel there is a long chain of sugar or polysaccharide. This has the capability of being able to help us defend against attacks by various viruses, from the common cold to the more nasty viruses and could even balance your immune system.
4. Anti – inflammatory and painkilling effect.
Among the substances that have been identified in Aloe Vera are several that are naturally anti – inflammatory and painkilling. People who take it regularly often find that inflammatory conditions are greatly benefited.
3. A useful source of minerals
Some of the minerals found in Aloe Vera include calcium, potassium, iron, chromium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc. This is because the plant tends to grow in areas where soils are rich in these minerals and its roots are able to absorb and deliver them to us in a very available form.
2. A useful source of vitamins
Aloe Vera Gel contains a large range of vitamins- even trace elements of vitamins B12, which is rarely found in plants. Apart from vitamin A, it contains B- group vitamins, vitamin C, Vitamin E, and folic acid. The body cannot store many of these vitamins so we need to constantly top them up from the food that we eat. What better way than by drinking a daily amount of Aloe Vera Gel while at the same time building up the body’s defense system against oxidative stress naturally?
And my number one reason for drinking aloe Vera Gel is…..
1. A general tonic for good health
By drinking Aloe Vera Gel with all its important ingredients (often now deficient in food) including 19 of the 20 amino acids needed by the human body and seven of the eight essential ones that just cannot be made, the body is able to get enough to allow complex enzyme systems to work really well. this means the body can function at 100%. the net result to the individual is a wonderful feeling of wellbeing.
As you can see from these 10 reasons taken daily- either alone or mixed fruit juice or our other wonderful antioxidant product Pomesteen Power – Aloe Vera Gel is one of the best nutritional available!
