Stomach-Soothing Aloe NutriBlast1
It’s a well-known fact that when aloe vera is used topically, it can help speed up skin’s healing process. Now, we’re learning more and more about the internal medicinal benefits of aloe. It has been used as an herbal medicine for hundreds of years and can help reduce inflammation, aid digestion, improve oral health and provide antioxidant properties.
Since I have Ulcerative Colitis and have had some digestive issues, especially during and after my cancer treatment, I’m always researching the best ways to manage symptoms. The first and best step was finding my way to the NutriBullet to help with the digestion and absorption of my fruits and vegetables. This actually solved many of my issues and, in fact, after only months using the NutriBullet, my UC went into remission – something I was told was most likely not possible.
Now that the team at NutriBullet has helped me reduce my body’s inflammation and detox, I am using my NutriBullet to address a number of normal, daily health concerns. I decided to start drinking aloe vera juice by adding a few ounces to a cup of warm water in the mornings. Since it does have a mild, distinctive taste, I didn’t even consider the possibilities of adding it to my NutriBlasts until recently and have come up with some tasty recipes. Please note that like many ingredients used holistically, there can be risks if consumed every day and too often. If you are on medication for certain conditions, it is always best to be safe and check with your doctor before adding an herbal remedy into your diet. I usually add aloe vera to my drinks about 3 times a week.
Here is one of my favorite NutriBlasts which incorporates aloe vera juice!
