10 Facts About Aloe’s Health Benefits

Aloe vera is highly regarded as a “super plant” for a variety of reasons, and is so impactful in the ways it can benefit our health. From hydrating our skin to boosting nutrient absorption, aloe is truly an incredible source of overall wellness. Here are 10 amazing facts about how a recommended supply of aloe vera can help maintain your good health!

1. Aloe Has Topical Benefits on the Skin 

Known as nature’s best moisturizer for thousands of years, the inner gel of the aloe plant helps replenish and moisturize our skin. As such, our own Aloe Vera Gelly can help soothe tender skin after sun & wind exposure, and promote an attractive and healthy appearance, and hydrate a minimum of 3 epidermal layers.

2. Aloe Has Natural Antioxidant Properties

Antioxidants can help protect your cells from free radical damage, which may have negative impacts on your health. Aloe vera offers enhanced antioxidant support to our bodies so we can maintain good health down to the cellular level.

3. Aloe Encourages Digestive Health Benefits 

Did you know aloe can help naturally balance your stomach’s acidity? Our Aloe Herbal Stomach Formula uses a combination of organically-grown aloe and trusted herbs to help maintain healthy digestion. Getting your stomach’s pH balance on track can also help with occasional acid reflux and heartburn. Aloe can also help create a helpful digestive environment to support healthy flora growth with the aid of probiotics.  Our digestive systems are the center of the body’s health systems so it is important to maintain healthy digestion.

4. Aloe is Rich in Amino Acids

Aloe contains over 200 nutrients that are required for human life. It has 20 out of 22 of the amino acids, 7 of which are essential for the human body. It also contains monosaccharides, mucilages, and polysaccharides – the basis for which we’ve created our patent-pending Aloesorb process

5. Aloe Helps Strengthen Immunity 

Consuming our aloe vera juice is clinically proven to positively impact your immune system due to all the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients it contains, but most importantly, the polysaccharides. You can drink it plain or add it to your favorite beverage – we prefer smoothies and mocktails!

6. Aloe Is An Adaptogen

Adaptogens help your body stay in homeostasis by improving your adaptability to physical and emotional stress. Aloe vera works as an adaptogen to help your body’s response to fatigue, stress, and anxiety. 

7. Aloe Offers Detoxification Benefits 

Detoxification is vital for everyday life, as it helps remove unwanted waste that prevent our body’s cells from absorbing essential nutrients. Using a specifically formulated detox product like our Aloe Herbal Detox Formula can support the body’s natural detoxification process and support healthy regularity.

8. Aloe Contains Natural Enzymes

Aloe contains 8 natural enzymes that can help your body naturally break down food to support a balanced digestive system.

9. Aloe Contains Essential Vitamins

Consuming foods that have vitamins is an excellent way to support the body naturally. Aloe naturally contains vitamins A, C, and E, which are great antioxidants. It also has vitamin B12, choline, and folic acid to help us stay healthy.

10. Aloe Contains Beneficial Polysaccharides That Enhance Nutrient Absorption

Aloe contains polysaccharides that help enhance nutrient absorption and support an increase of white blood cell counts. At Lily of the Desert, we’ve discovered a way to boost these natural benefits through our Aloesorb process. Our gold standard studies show that our aloe can help reduce toxic levels of nitrates, support immune health, and provide a valuable increase in nutrient absorption when compared to traditional aloe vera
