Over the years, natural healing plants have been pushed aside for chemical-based prescribed medications but people are beginning to look toward natural remedies for a more organic, less harsh solution. One plant that has stood the test of time is aloe vera. For centuries, aloe has been used to help regain digestive health due to its natural anti-inflammatory properties. At AloeCure, we're often asked which components of the aloe plant actually help aid digestive function, so we decided to answer your question, here.
Well, you could...
But before you do, let's break down the reasons why you shouldn't.
One common misconception is that you can simply eat the aloe leaves to help relieve indigestion. While raw aloe leaves are technically safe for oral consumption, the leaves have a laxative effect. So if you are already having tummy troubles, a laxative that will disrupt your gut flora would outweigh the benefits of improving pH balance and would likely just cause you more trouble. What you really want is that inner gel because it contains the active nutrients and acts as a natural acid buffer. It contains a polymannan known as Acemannan, whose structure and functional effects in overall health have been very well established. Aloe Vera contains a natural buffer system that can restore a healthy level of stomach acid by raising the pH a small fraction. The inner gel also functions as a probiotic to promote the growth of good flora in order to optimize digestive function. Some of our favorite ways to get the benefits of the aloe gel are in an extract form, such as a juice or a supplement. Like with any medication or supplement, when using aloe for indigestion, it is important to check with your doctor and to not use in place of any potential medications or treatments your doctor has recommended.
Pure aloe capsules promote a healthy digestive system without any of the unpleasant symptoms that can occur when eating a raw aloe leaf. As long as you closely read the labels to ensure that aloin has been removed, Aloe powder can help to naturally soothes the digestive tract and may help assist with the overall digestive function of the lining of the tract and stomach. As normal digestive function is restored, instances of indigestion may naturally decrease. With continued use, aloe capsules help maintain normal digestive function and indigestion may be significantly decrease. Aloe keeps maintain a balanced digestive system. While this balance helps avoid indigestion, you may also experience improved regularity.
Drinking aloe juice have the same effect as taking the aloe capsules, but with more immediate effects and can be consumed anytime throughout the day. Aloe juice is somewhat of an acquired taste, but if you want to spice up your aloe juice and create some flavorful options, it offers a great additive to any kind of existing fruit juice or smoothie. Your taste buds and digestive system will thank you.
