Aloe Vera: Discover a Health and Beauty Secret of the Ancient Egyptians

Discover a health and beauty secret of the ancient Egyptians
You have probably heard of the legendary beauty of the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra, but did you also known that one of her secrets was the use of aloe vera? The Egyptians revered the aloe plant for its many health giving properties. They passed its secrets on to the Greeks and now we are passing them on to you.

 

Everyone has heard of aloe vera, but most have only seen it as a mere ingredient of lotions and creams, due to aloe’s widely known benefits for skin. But aloe vera is one of the most nutritious and versatile vegetables on the planet and should be used for much more than just an ingredient.The gel of raw aloe vera contains vitamins C and E, plus the minerals calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, and chromium, as well as antioxidants, fiber, amino acids, enzymes, sterols, and lignins and, most importantly, polysaccharides.

It is the polysaccharides in aloe that help it do everything from fighting infections, to boosting the immune system. Aloe has many health giving properties and there is no better way to harness its power than by utilizing the gel straight from the fresh leaves.

Aloe is not just for the skin

 

That’s right. Not only can fresh aloe be applied topically to the skin, but it can also be eaten. Eating aloe opens up a whole new range of benefits. Aloe can aid in recovery from digestive illnesses such as colitis, ulcers and irritable bowels and also supports the nervous system, joint health and blood sugar regulation.

Some health food stores will carry bottled aloe vera supplements, but these gels and juices have been processed to extend shelf life and do not come close to the power of fresh aloe right out of the leaf.

How to use Aloe Vera

 

Filet your aloe leaf with a knife to remove the green outer layer. Apply the gel to your skin or add to recipes. The gel of raw, fresh aloe vera has a mild, slightly bitter flavor. Once the gel is removed from the inner leaf, it may be combined with other foods in smoothies, salads, or other raw food preparations.

Try mixing small cubes of raw aloe vera gel into a salsa, or blend up pieces of the raw gel into soups, spreads, and dips. Aloe is also great when blended up with fresh squeezed orange juice. You will get box of 12 fresh, raw, whole aloe leaves delivered right to your doorstep.

Sunfood Aloe Vera is pesticide-free and sustainably grown. Aloe originated in Africa and our aloe grows in a climate that is very similar to its native habitat.
