Achy Breaky Parts

Lily of the Desert's blog Aloe TodayWho doesn’t love fall—the colors change and the temperatures finally cool down.  But many of us actually feel the weather changes down to our bones with the occasional muscle and joint pain that colder weather brings. No matter the age, our bodies naturally experience wear and tear that can really be a setback in our daily routine.

This pain can often involve more than one muscle or joint, and can be caused by many different types of injuries or conditions. But you can look to nature to find a helpful remedy.  Aloe vera naturally offers a soothing effect to inflamed tissues, not to mention that eight of the amino acids found in aloe gel have natural anti-inflammatory properties, as well as several of its enzymes.

We always think of Aloe vera as a summertime necessity, slathering it on our sun-kissed skin after a too-long afternoon in the garden or at the seaside. In reality, aloe has also long been a natural source of aid to non-chronic joint and muscle pain. According to a published study, researchers in Korea claim that Aloe vera showed strong antioxidant effects and potentially blocked pain messages.

If you find yourself needing to take a break because your muscle and joint pain is slowing you down, consider mixing 2 ounces of Lily of the Desert’s Aloe vera Juice in with your morning glass of orange juice.  Aloe vera naturally has 200 nutrients, including essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals and enzymes that help keep your body healthy, and our polysaccharide-rich enhancement Aloesorb will help amplify those benefits, so that you’re not giving up the things in life that you want to do.
