The festive season is about to kick off, which means spending time with loved ones, cosy nights by the fire and of course, overindulgence. But hey, it’s only once a year! You can still enjoy your Christmas tipples and hearty food but we recommend you take steps everyday to ensure you are looking after yourselves. Aloe Vera has been proven to aid digestion and be a highly effective detoxifier. We present to you the three ways in which Aloe Vera can help you alleviate the effects of this time of year, and our top tips for how best to consume it!
How does Aloe Vera detoxify our body?
Tummy feeling a bit dodgy from last night? Aloe Vera can help to alleviate stresses on the gut caused by alcohol with its anti-inflammatory properties, meaning that after a period of use, your digestive system can be rebooted, leaving you feeling naturally refreshed.
Furthermore, Aloe Vera is a natural pre-biotic and therefore helps to establish the natural bacterial flora in the digestive system. We think of it as food for your good bacteria which in turn will help with common winter symptoms of bloating and constipation and can even help with metabolising your food.
Feeling a little run down? The polysaccharides within Aloe Vera stimulate white blood cells to help strengthen the body’s immune system and support the fight against viruses. Resultantly, this makes Aloe Vera an essential part of your detoxification – a restorative essential and boosting tonic
3) Clear glowing skin
To top it all off, Aloe Vera’s antibacterial properties combined with its anti-inflammatory factors can prevent and reduce skin inflammation, which is particularly prevalent after a night of partying. When consumed, they provide the skin with a natural source of moisture that can contribute to a glowing complexion and the high levels of antioxidants can help combat free-radicals that are known to contribute to the ageing process.
