One reason why the aloe plant is so beneficial is that it is thought to have a chemical make up closer to the chemical make up of humans than any other plant Aloe has the ability to restore the digestive system and bring back vital nutrients Highly processed diets lacking proper nutrients are often the cause of intestinal problems Aloe vera can help return the digestive system to its optimum state, even after all the damage done by an improper diet
Improved or Relieved Symptoms
When the colon and digestive system are improved or restored by the enzymes and nutrients from the aloe vera plant, some individuals find improvement in many IBS systems You may experience less bloating and heartburn, an ease in stomach pain and gas, and most importantly, healing from diarrhea and/or constipation Healing from IBS can occur with regular use of aloe vera and a healthy diet
Drinking Aloe vs Taking a Pill

Danielle Brown says
Unless the leaves are brown or otherwise damaged (eg spotted, soggy, have holes, which might indicate a insect problem) they should contain good aloe gel Try a small amount to start And just be sure to rinse off the aloe gel before consuming it, as you do not want to get any aloe latex You might want to also check out this article about consuming aloe vera gel just so you have all the facts and learn about proper dosage
Would anyone know if drinking Aloe Vera juice can repair colon pockets (diverticulitis)?
I was wonder if anyone here is familiar with the scd diet and what is says about Aloe Vera as it is on the list of things not aloud
It contains mucilaginous polysaccharides as well as increasing the release of tumor necrosis factor which is associated with IBD inflammation and increased immune stimulation
I would like to give it a shot
Anyone here have positive results that has UC?
