Aloe Life

 

When you think of aloe vera, you probably think of the gel that you rub onto your skin after a long day in the sun. While it is absolutely true that aloe vera is great to use topically, it can actually help to promote wellness throughout your entire body! That being said, not all aloe vera products are the same. Some are much better for you than others! That’s why I highly recommend the amazing line of aloe vera products from Aloe Life.

Since its founding in 1991, Aloe Life has always been committed to making the highest quality formulas and products that serve as the foundation for health. Their mission is to teach others how to live healthier lives with quality aloe vera products and health education, achieving success in the pursuit of health by teaching others to take positive actions and providing safe and effective products to support them. There are three characteristics that set Aloe Life apart from other brands; Quality, potency, and value. Not only does Aloe Life use the best organic aloe vera available, it uses the whole leaf of the plant, making their products rich in the nutrients that help to benefit the body. They never over filter or dilute their formulas by adding water. By producing a whole leaf concentrate that is more potent, they reduce the amount that you have to take through concentration. That means you take less aloe while getting amazing results.

I recently had the pleasure of trying out a variety of products from Aloe Life….and boy, do they have a lot of great stuff to offer! From their amazing aloe vera juice mixes to skin gels and supplements, Aloe Life has you covered! I have started taking “shots” of their aloe vera juice every morning and I love it! You can do it plain or even add the liquid to smoothies. I also enjoy taking their FiberMate supplements daily! This natural stool softener is made from high quality herbs and veggies, providing your body with essential minerals, vitamins, and enzymes. These supplements are also full of chlorophyll and probiotics, which I love! Get your greens with Aloe Life’s Daily Greens Formula. You can take it in powder or tablet form to give your body amazing alkalinizing benefits. Best of all? This product is safe for just about everyone including children, teens, seniors, and even pets!

With summer coming, why not stock up on the Aloe Life Face and Body Lotion! It’s a wonderful way to keep your skin feeling healthy and smooth. Perfectly formulated for all skin types, this lotion works great on especially sensitive and damaged skin. It is blended with lanolin, macadamia nut oil, and jojoba oil along with vitamins A, C, E, selenium and zinc. That’s why I love how it nourishes my skin and leaves it feeling silky smooth! It is also gluten free and does not contain any parabens.

Authen-tip: The Healing Power of Aloe Vera

When it comes to Aloe Vera, we typically think of it in regards to relieving the severity of sunburns. What many people don’t know is that this plant has been shown to promote healing for many other ailments including cuts and wounds, scars, varicose veins, and insect stings. Aloe Vera juice is very beneficial for those who suffer from digestive problems. Many natural health drinks are including Aloe Vera in their beverages for that very reason. Aloe Vera has also been shown to promote shiny and strong hair when used as a shampoo, hair gel, or conditioner. It’s also an excellent remedy for skin issues such as acne, scraps, and discoloration. Be sure to keep Aloe Vera in your house all year long and not just in the summer!

Smoothie of the Day: Aloe Cucumber Berry Smoothie

Many people know that aloe vera has amazing healing properties, especially when it comes to the skin! You can apply it to sunburns, rashes, dry skin and even acne breakouts. Did you know that aloe vera juice can also help heal you from the inside? Aloe vera juice has been shown to help cleanse the colon, promote the healing of ulcers and support optimal digestion. It’s also been shown to improve overall circulation in the body. I recently found  fabulous new beverage that contains aloe vera pulp and aloe vera juice! It’s called Alo and it tastes amazing. I liked the idea of adding it to my morning smoothies and now I am hooked. It’s perfect! I also like adding fresh berries to these smoothies for a boost of antioxidants. Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think!

Aloe Cucumber Berry Smoothie

  • 1 C Alo (you can select your favorite flavor, I personally like the Pineapple, Guava, Seabuckthorn Berry)
  • 1 C fresh organic raspberries or strawberries
  • 1/2 C cucumber slices (chop them up in advance for easier blending)

Add all ingredients to your blender and process until smooth. Pour into a tall glass and serve. Enjoy!
