The Benefits of Aloe Vera – The First Aid Plant!

Hey everyone, Dr. Group here and today I want
to talk to you about aloe vera. Aloe vera, is a plant, a succulent, which is sometimes called the “first aid” plant. It is really incredible and offers a lot of different benefits. First off, as a food, aloe vera is extremely
nutritious. In fact, when you get down to it, it’s really
a powerful superfood. Not only does aloe vera contain powerful antioxidants,
but it’s a great source of minerals like calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, and potassium. I have really noticed that there are a massive amount of people out there that are deficient in Zinc and especially in iron. Believe it or not. It is really good to supplement with aloe to get some of those minerals back in your body. Also, it’s loaded with vitamins A, C, E, and most of the B vitamins, including B12. That is another vitamin that is extremely deficient in most people. Another thing is that aloe vera contains 20 of the 22 amino acids required by the human body. On top of all THAT, it’s a great source
of over 200 active enzymes, including amylase and lipase, both of which support digestion,
AND an enzyme called bradykinase, which helps fight inflammation. Studies at the Texas Children’s Hospital
have even shown that aloe vera can have positive effects on blood sugar, especially for people
at risk for developing diabetes. All combined, aloe vera is a nutritional powerhouse
that’s great for your health and immune system. The easiest way to experience the nutritional
benefits of aloe vera is to drink aloe vera juice. If you’re looking for a recommendation, I recommend any organic cold pressed source of aloe juice. Look online or go to your local farmers market. They might have some. A local organic food store will have some as well. A couple of brands I like are Our Pure Aloe and BiAloe. That is what I use. Another benefit of aloe vera is that it helps
wounds heal. You have probably used it already on cuts, scrapes and bruises. In fact, one of the most common uses of aloe vera gel is in ointment form which is available in most drug stores although if you find it there it has probably been tainted with toxic preservatives and chemicals. It is really easy to make your own Aloe Vera gel. All you need is to have your own aloe vera plant. Then you can just cut the succulent arms off and use it for burns, canker sores, ulcers, and cuts. It is really good to help your skin heal especially from wounds. Not only does it have a soothing action that
feels good, but studies have found that aloe vera can make wounds heal faster by stimulating
the growth of new cells. Especially people that want the anti-aging benefits on their face. Generating new, fresh healthy cells. Often times they will do fresh aloe vera masks. It feels great on your skin and has cell regeneration properties. Next time you’re going to put on a band
aid, use a little aloe vera gel, you’ll be amazed by how well it works. Sometimes, I even mix in a little bit of Iodine with that. The last benefit, and perhaps my favorite,
is that aloe vera juice can help detoxify your body. Aloe vera juice is really effective at stimulating
your body’s natural detoxification routes by promoting normal, healthy bowel movements. Now, that’s not to say it’s a laxative
— it’s not — it’s just systemic lubrication that helps keep things moving. It grabs unwanted toxins and helps eliminate it in a natural way. And, because it contains minerals like zinc,
it has an antioxidant action that can support your body’s enzymatic activity to help eliminate
metabolic waste. The detoxifying action of aloe vera is why
I’ve included it as part of my intestinal cleansing protocol. It is something that is going to help all the way around. It is one of the miracle plants out there. That I think everyone should have. Aloe vera is available in the organic food stores as
— creams, ointments, and even juice. It doesn’t matter which one you decide on just make sure you get one of a high quality. It’s important to read the labels, look for any toxic preservatives, excipients, and chemicals in there. Avoid any aloe products that contain toxic chemicals. Quality and purity need to be your top priorities,
and organic products are one of the best criterias for establishing that. And, if you’re looking for aloe vera juice,
one that’s unpasteurized is best because it’s going to ensure enzyme integrity. Sometimes that’s difficult to find, but
if you grow your own aloe vera plants, there are a lot of videos on YouTube that show you how to peel the aloe vera, what parts to eat, what parts to peel off some of it can be very pungent. But you can mix it in smoothies as well. It is really easy to grow. Allowing to have fresh aloe whenever you want it. If you’ve never experienced the benefits
of aloe vera, I highly recommend that you get yourself some. For more tips and information on nutrition

    I had surgery almost 30yrs ago at the age of 5 to remove a benign tumor on my tibia (lower bone in leg), and even back then, my Doctor recommended I drink Aloe Vera Juice a few times a day. I truly believe that doing so helped my bone regrow and heal. 3 inches of my bone was removed, leaving a sliver to keep the bone connected. It took about a year but my bone grew back entirely.

    How often should you consume it? I read that consuming it too often is not healthy as it can have an opposite affect on your body. I'm thinking once a week is enough..

    I'd like to know if aloe vera can be taken before meals mixed with apple cider vinegar instead of supplementing with digestive bitters since they both are very beneficial for proper digestion and aloe vera contains enough enzymes and the apple cider vinegar also helps to balance the ph. ???????
