🌱🌱 GUT HEALTH 🌱🌱 Did you know that over 70% of your immune system is located in your digestive tract? 😱
So when your gut is healthy, it helps your whole system stay healthy. But when it’s not, your body will inevitably get sick 🤒
Gut health is a topic that’s getting a lot of press lately and I think it’s about time especially this time of year, schools are back and sickness is doing the rounds 📚 👔
In the last week almost every play date I had arranged with moms were cancelled as either the kid/baby was sick or the mom was sick 🤮
It’s an understatement to say the importance of gut health is undervalued. The digestive system is where nutrients are absorbed and is the basis of a healthy body.
If your digestive system is inefficient or your gut environment isn’t balanced, you won't get the most nutritional value from your food.
A healthy gut reacts positively to good nutrition and is also the result of good nutrition. 🥗 🍉
Refined sugar, artificial ingredients, and artificial coloring offer no nutrition and, even worse, can upset gut balance. 🍰 🥤 🍟
Aloe vera, on the other hand, is a nutrient-dense superfood that soothes, nourishes, and promotes detoxification and normal bowel movements 🤸♂️ Now the Science Bit 🤓👩🔬
How Does Aloe Vera Aid Digestion?
🌟Aloe vera offers over 70 different nutrients, including calcium, chromium, copper, selenium, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, and zinc. Aloe contains antioxidant vitamins A (beta-carotene), C, and E. It’s a great source of vitamin B12, folic acid, and choline. 🌟Aloe Vera promotes a healthy gut environment by supporting the probiotic colonies that live there. Probiotics are living organisms and require nutrients called prebiotics. Aloe is a great source of prebiotics that feed good gut bacteria. 🌟Stomach Acid Levels with Aloe Vera
Research indicates that aloe vera promotes balanced pH levels throughout the body. This helps reduce inflammation, redness, swelling, and irritation and alkalises the body.
