Aloe Boosts Nutrient Absorption - Lily of the Desert

Aloe Boosts Nutrient Absorption

We all try to focus on eating the right diet full of whole grains, fruits, vegetables and lean proteins while filling in the gaps with vitamins and supplements. But no matter what you may be doing, your body is most likely not fully absorbing the essential vitamins, minerals, enzymes and more that you depend on to stay healthy. This is why finding a natural nutrient booster is so important. And it just so happens that our aloe is one.

Why Nutrient Absorption is Important

The body takes in various nutrients like protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals and water every day and delivers them to your body cells for use. If you aren’t eating a balanced diet, it’s very easy to fall into nutrient deficiency. Unfortunately, we do not always meet these nutrient requirements.

Even if you’re eating nutrient-rich foods, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to absorb them all. If your digestive system isn’t functioning well, then you can lose precious nutrients during digestion. Digestive enzymes break down the food into macro and micro nutrients and transport them to the small intestine where the nutrients are absorbed into the bloodstream. If your digestive system is inefficient, you may lose a percentage of the nutrients your body requires that help maintain good health.

How Aloe Impacts Absorption

It comes down to the aloe polysaccharides that we love so much. They really are the driving force behind aloe’s natural benefits and our own Aloesorb. To put it simply, aloe polysaccharides act as a nutrient carrier for your foods and supplements, driving them toward your body’s cells for maximum absorption.

Nutrients must be carried through the digestive system to be fully absorbed, so having balanced digestion is also key to optimal absorption. If your digestive tract lining is damaged from issues like occasional indigestion your body has a harder time absorbing nutrients. By drinking aloe, you can help soothe the digestive tract lining and assist in cleansing out waste that hinders you from absorbing nutrients.

Additional Way to Boost Nutrient Absorption

  • Stay Hydrated- Water helps to better digest food and supplements
  • Balanced Diet- Foods like salmon, broccoli, peppers, garlic, berries and lentils are some of the most nutrient-dense foods you can consume. Try to limit caffeine and alcohol that can inhibit digestive enzymes as well.
  • Stress Less- Nothing negatively impacts our bodies more than stress, so it is important to find an outlet like exercise, cooking, knitting that can help you alleviate stress.
  • Use Helpful Supplements- Aloe vera is a natural adaptogen, working with your body to maintain balance against stressors that negatively impact nutrient absorption.
