A Miracle Plant? Can I Drink it?
Aloe Vera is often referred to as the "Miracle Plant". Even though it is such a miraculous plant ...many people do not have a clue of the essential benefits they could get by drinking the juice of an Aloe Vera plant.
If I told you that you could drink the juice of an Aloe Vera plant, you would probably think of the Aloe Vera juice as green and shimmy. But what you do not know is you can drink the juice of an Aloe Vera plant and it is actually pleasantly easy to drink. Today the "whole plant" is used in the process.
When Aloe Vera is made into a juice, the juice is yellow or redish in color and often available in different flavors. My favorite is Strawberry-Kiwi Aloe Vera juice. Natural fruits are added for the desired taste.
If you have experienced what the gel from the leaf of an aloe vera plant can do for a burn, you might have some idea what Aloe Vera can do for burn like feelings on the inside of your body. You know that feeling when you've eaten something that just didn't agree with you.
Many people keep an Aloe Vera plant on their shelf in the kitchen just for those moments when "ouch" you touch something hot. Instantly they cut the leaf, apply the gel and "ahhhh" relief! And most times no blistering. See what is meant by miracle plant?
Now think about this ...what do you think is happening to the inside of your stomach when you get a stomachache or indigestion? You bet!!! Burn! At least it feels like a burn and if you could look inside your stomach that is constantly being abused and irritated, it would surprise you to see what is happening. But Aloe Vera can do on the inside exactly what it does on the outside ...with NO bad side effects ...only good ones!!
I hope this has helped you understand just one of the benefits there are when drinking the juice from a plant that goes as far back as biblical time.
