Can Aloe Boost Your Immune System? - Lily of the Desert

Can Aloe Boost Your Immune System?

Having effective, daily immune support has never been more important, with the constant environmental changes and germs that we continue to encounter. And while there are some herbs known to help naturally boost immune health, people are not aware that Aloe vera should be included in this list. Read on to learn what makes Lily of The Desert aloe products different and how they can improve your immune function!

What Makes Aloe So Effective?

We are constantly exposed to environments teeming with viruses, bacteria, and toxins, and the immune system is our first line of defense. Aloe has been shown to support immunity by actively…

  • Increasing white blood cell counts: White blood cells work 24/7 to search for and defend the body against foreign substances. When cell counts drop, they need to be replenished quickly. The polysaccharide compounds naturally found in aloe vera have been clinically shown to effectively raise white blood cell counts.   
  • Promoting a healthy gut biomeDid you know around 70% of our immune system is located in the gut? By supporting your stomach’s biome with the vitamins, minerals, and enzymes found in aloe vera, you’re also protecting yourself against harmful germs and illness.
  • Enhancing antioxidant support: Free radical molecules are produced as a byproduct of normal metabolic processes. If left unchecked, they can promote the growth of bacteria and damage at the cellular level. Aloe vera contains powerful antioxidants that neutralize free radical activity, reduce oxidative stress, and boost immunity.
  • Providing vital amino acids: Known as the building blocks of proteins, amino acids also support immune cell function. Aloe vera contains 19 of the 20 known amino acids, including seven of the eight identified as essential to the human body. Essential amino acids are not made by the body and must be sourced via food or supplement intake.

Aloesorb: The Difference Maker

Using aloe vera can definitely increase immunity, but the level of efficacy you experience depends on the brand you select. Lily of The Desert grows and harvests aloe plants on our organic farms. Our entire product line is uniquely enhanced with Aloesorb, formulated from the high molecular weight polysaccharides found in the dense gel inside the leaves.   

Using our patent-pending infusion process, we achieve a higher concentration of aloe’s vital ingredients; 60mg of Aloesorb is infused into each 2-ounce serving.  Aloesorb has been clinically proven by several independent tests to intensify the power of aloe, making Lily products more effective than other brands. A “Gold Standard” clinical study on Lily products with Aloesorb showed a 16% increase in white blood cell counts over the placebo group. Our unique formulation not only boosts immunity but significantly increases nutrient absorption and reduces toxins.  

Protecting and nourishing your body with aloe supports overall good health. You can help your immune system work efficiently by drinking four ounces of aloe juice daily. It’s super easy to add to your favorite beverage, or visit our blog and try a delicious immunity-building smoothie recipe!
