Aloe Vera and the Heart
Heart disease is 90% prevention
As I'm watching the news the other day, there they are, discussing the number one killer in the country, heart disease. At that moment I felt compiled to write this article about Aloe Vera and the positive affect it has on the heart. So, here we go. Heart disease, as almost everyone knows, or should know by now, can be prevented or at least controlled, simply by knowing that heart disease is 90% a matter of prevention ...with proper diet, the reduction of STRESS, moderate exercise, the elimination of toxins and the lowering of the LDL cholesterol and elevating of the HDL cholesterol in the system. Remember, we talked about "lifestyle habits" and that all habits are equal?
Consider this, in a series of studies of the many primitive societies where the lifestyles are uncomplicated and the food is simple and mostly free of fat, it has been found that there is almost no evidence of heart disease or complications such as arteriosclerosis, hypertension, angina pectoris or diverticulitis.
The Baby Boomers that are not paying attention …need to take notice.
"Sugar Shacks" ...do you think they cause stress?
On the other hand, when we study the typical modern, industrialized countries with the stressful schedules, two family incomes, fast food restaurants, microwave meals, "sugar shacks" on every corner and the annual sugar intake in pounds that some people couldn't even lift. We can step back out of the circle and see just what kind of STRESS we put on our heart and the cardiovascular system.
If there is any doubt that heart disease is a by-product of our modern "lifestyle habits". Consider this. On average, every American adult is overweight. About 1/4 are technically, clinically obese. Over 80% of the population experience high levels of STRESS daily. Americans consume nearly 60 pounds of granulated sugar a year in the food and soft drinks he/she eats and drinks. By the way, get this, triglycercides fat in the human system appear to rise in direct proportion to the amount of sugar or sucrose a person takes in. Hmmmmm!

Aloe Vera shows no toxicity record!!
Over half of the Americans that have high blood pressure, much is related to obesity and high levels of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides in their system. Not to mention the amount of fast food, junk food, cigarettes and over 100 million Americans may live in areas where the drinking water is considered to have levels of chlorine, fluoride, chemicals and pollutants that make it unfit to drink ...with 3/4 of the population living in areas where the air is considered to be hazardous to you health.
Aloe Vera helps make improvements in less than 48 hours.
With these "lifestyle habits" of doom and gloom, is there any ray of light? And again, without a doubt, yes there is, just give it a try, this remarkable plant, Aloe Vera.
In test after test, when Aloe Vera is added to the blood samples with high fat and cholesterol, in every test, the Aloe Vera showed a dramatic reduction in both LDL cholesterol and Triglycerides in less than 48 hours.
These same tests also showed a significant rise in the HDL or good cholesterol. Now that is some good news!!!
Drink plenty of clean water.
...an added benefit with the use of Aloe Vera as a treatment for heart disease. When using the Aloe Vera as a treatment, there is absolutely no relative toxicity recorded. In some cases, it has a better toxicology record than tap water.
Speaking of water, my recommendation would be, drink plenty of clean, fresh, filtered water and at least "four ounces" of Aloe Vera every day. And above all else, know your supplier.
