Aloe Vera for Candida Treatment

Aloe Vera for Candida




Do you have an aloe plant in your windowsill? You are not alone!

Many people grow this plant but are not aware of its significant health benefits.

It can even be used to treat candida. Here is how.

Soothing

When you have a sunburn, what do you put on it? Aloe vera's soothing properties make it a prime choice for relieving inflamed tissues. Aloe vera juice is very soothing to the intestines.

Intestinal inflammation is often a symptom of candida overgrowth. Drinking some aloe vera juice each day can reduce intestinal inflammation.

Vitamins

Vitamins C, E, and A are present in aloe vera. These are important components in supporting the immune system, and aloe vera juice delivers these vitamins in an easily-absorbed way. Strengthening the immune system is vital for treating candida.

Minerals

Aloe vera has magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, and other important minerals. These are good for anyone, but in defeating candida they are especially essential. This is just one of the many reasons why aloe vera for candida is a great cure.

Enzymes

The digestive enzymes lipase and protease are present in aloe vera. Drinking the juice replenishes these important components of the digestive system. Healing digestion and restoring balance is key in healing candida. These enzymes also help reduce inflammation.

Acid-Reduction

Aloe vera can reduce the acid in your stomach, which can help the probiotic supplements (you are taking those, right?) and good bacteria in your diet survive the first part of the digestive process. This means those good bacteria can then make it to the gut.

Amino Acids

Aloe vera juice contains 20 of the 22 amino acids that your body requires. Again, this is important in restoring the proper balance in your body, which is necessary to overcome candida.

Aloe vera can be found in various forms. You can simply split the juicy leaves of your home-grown aloe vera plant and use the gel topically. The juice can be purchased commercially at health food stores.

Even mainstream stores sometimes carry the juice. Aloe vera can also be taken in a freeze-dried form.
