Let’s take the spotlight off of the beloved Coconut Water for a minute and check out my new favorite healthy habit, Aloe Vera Juice! Did you ever rub the gel from Aloe leaves on your cuts when you were little? Well when taken orally, it is said to aid in weight loss, digestion, constipation, immune function, lubricates joints and hydrates skin, lowers blood sugar levels and even ‘eases general discomfortโ€™ as a natural pain reliever. It benefits digestion and metabolism, and appears to offer colon cleansing benefits, detoxifying the body. It has also been found to soothe arthritis pain. I buy big bottles that I swig from about 2 gulps a day. ย The first time I heard about it was my short experience with Herbalife, which recommends Aloe Juice for weight loss! The best kind, or so I’ve heard, is the gel that you dilute in water which you can find at health food stores and online.
