Aloe Vera juice: Why all the hype?
Aloe Vera’s health-benefiting powers have been reported as far back as 5,000 years ago when ancient Egyptians used the plant both orally and topically to treat a number of ailments. From burns and scars to upset stomachs, this plant’s powers has been linked to helping bodies heal and cleanse.
Traditionally, it’s the aloe vera gel - found when you open the leafy green stalks of the plant - that has been used in natural medicine, but recently, the juice has been touted to have great benefits.
From detoxing, to aiding digestion and boosting your immune system, there are plenty of reasons why this juice could help improve your all-round wellbeing. Here are just some reasons why we love aloe vera juice.
Had a couple of stressful weeks filled with rushed lunches and take-away dinners? Or maybe just a weekend with one too many cocktails? Well a burst of aloe vera juice could help you cleanse and detox. Its high water content, combined with its powerful sources of trace elements, vitamins and minerals makes for the perfect combination to eliminate any toxins our body builds up in daily life.
Having clear and glowing skin goes hand-in-hand with detoxing; the fewer toxins in your body, the more healthy your skin and complexion will look. Aloe vera juice works to repair your collagen and elastin in the skin which will, over time, give you a more youthful appearance as skin cells in the dermis replace itself every 28 days or so. Top up your hydration levels with aloe vera juice and you’ll soon start to see the difference.
As winter draws in, there’s no better time to make sure your immune system is in tip-top condition and is ready to fight off any infection that comes your way. Aloe vera juice is filled with antioxidants which help fight off the free radicals - unstable compounds whose side effects range from speeding up the ageing process to upsetting our metabolism - found in our bodies. With a daily dose of aloe vera juice, your body and immune system will have the power to fight off these free radicals before they affect your health.
Amazing amino acids:
Amino acids are essential in our body in order to build proteins and in turn, the majority of our body’s cells. Our body needs 20 of these amino acids to survive, but it can only produce 12 of them on its own, the rest needs to be sourced from food and nutrients. Aloe vera juice contains a whopping 19 amino acids and seven of the ones our body can’t self-produce. So if you’re looking to fuel your body, strengthen and provide it with all the amino-goodness it needs in one hit, reach for a glass of aloe vera juice.
Having a happy gut is essential to make sure that our bodies are able to properly digest and absorb all the essential vitamins and minerals we take in from food. Apart from aloe vera’s detoxing powers, it also has the ability to reduce the amount of unfriendly bacteria and yeast found in the stomach that can upset our digestion systems. For suffers of heartburn or IBS, aloe vera could be a good natural solution to your digestion problems.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
