ALOE VERA
The Aloe Vera plant is grown in hot countries and has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal aid. A gel is contained within its long, fleshy leaves which is for external use and juice is available as a drink. Both have many beneficial uses. DIGESTIVE TRACT- Aloe Vera is beneficial to those who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome, colitis and diverticulitis as it soothes inflamed tissues and cleanses the bowel. Aloe Vera has a gentle laxative effect and therefore can help those who feel bloated or who have a tendency to be constipated. It also helps to promote healing of gastric ulcers, hiatus hernia and haemorrhoids. ARTHRITIS- Joint pain can be eased by taking Aloe Vera as it reduces inflammation. It can help to improve mobility of joints and can be taken along with other useful supplements such as glucosamine and Omega-3 oil. SKIN-Aloe Vera cream is an excellent moisturiser and is well known to soften skin and improve appearance of wrinkles- Cleopatra bathed in Aloe Vera daily to maintain her youthful complexion! Aloe Vera gel applied externally helps to heal minor cuts and is useful for burns, particularly sunburn. It is also worth a try for dry,itchy eczema. TONIC-Aloe Vera helps to boost the immune system as it contains Vitamins B and C, amino acids and minerals such as selenium. Most people who take Aloe Vera on a daily basis would say that it gives them more energy. PRECAUTIONS-Be careful to buy good quality aloe vera and always take the correct dose. As with any health supplement, ask your Pharmacist for advice before taking Aloe Vera if you are on medication, particularly for diabetes. We have two flavours of Aloe Vera Juice to choose from , original which can be taken neat or added to juice and cranberry which is very pleasant. PAULA MORGAN ORCHARD PHARMACY 23 MANDEVILLE ST.
