5 Ways Aloe Heals the Body and the Belly


By: Gaia Staff  |  July 14, 2013

Summer is officially here, which means potential sun burn and belly bad days. Picnics, road trips, beach days, and long days just lazing in the sun fill our calendar. One of nature’s many miracles, aloe, can help us maintain youthful hydrated skin and protect and calm our belly.

The benefits of Aloe:

Soothes Dry and Sun Burnt Skin. Aloe is over 99% water making it a great natural moisturizer and healer. Aloe naturally soothes the skin and oxygenates the skin cells increasing the strength and synthesis of the skin tissue. Store in the refrigerator and apply to sun burnt skin providing your body with some extra love. Heals Bug Bites and Abrasions. Aloe will relieve pain, reduce inflammation, stop bleeding and calm the urge to itch. Helps Balance the Body. Aloe is naturally alkalizing. After long days of summer sangria and stops at ice cream stands, you need to rebalance your body’s PH Level. Aloe will help balance an overly acidic belly and body. Improves Digestion. Poor digestion can wreak havoc on the body and stop you from having fun in the sun. Aloe soothes and cleanses the digestive tract. It is a gelatinous plant food, which moves through the intestinal tract absorbing toxins along the way and then eliminating them through the colon. Provides Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids and Fatty Acids. Aloe contains many vitamins including A, C, E, folic acid, choline, B1, B2, B3 (niacin), B6 and even B12. Some of the 20 minerals found in aloe include: calcium, magnesium, zinc, chromium, selenium, sodium, iron, potassium, copper and manganese. Aloe contains approximately 18-20 amino acids, 8 being essential. Fatty acids can also be found in aloe: HCL cholesterol (which lowers fats in the blood), campesterol, and B-sitosterol.
