It's summer and many of us reach for the aloe after long lazy days in the sun to provide relief from the itchy-burn sensation.  The soothing properties are almost magic on the skin, have you ever thought about what else this could do??

Take a drink of this stuff!  Drinking aloe helps to:
  1. Decrease indigestion
  2. Acts as a natural detox/cleanse
  3. Relieves symptoms of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)
  4. Helps to level blood sugar; especially for diabetics
  5. Reduction in cholesterol and triglycerides
  6. Strengthens gums (great if you find aloe in toothpaste)
  7. Minimizes infection in the ears and eyes
  8. Relieves arthritis
There are a variety of aloe drinks available at most health food stores.  Try to find the concentrated version that suggestion a serving of approximately 2 tbsp.  This version doesn't taste the best but is the most potent.  Also, many of the more flavorful "aloe drinks" are full of sugar; best to avoid these!

Have you had your aloe shot today?
