How aloe vera boosts the immune system and heals the gut

Aloe Vera

For most of my life, I thought aloe vera was just something you put on your skin after a sunburn… how little I knew. In today’s post, you’re going to learn how aloe boosts the immune system, heals the gut and so much more!

Yes, aloe vera is wonderful to put on your body, but it’s even better to put in your body, which is why I drank aloe vera gel every day as part of my anti-cancer diet in 2004, and I still drink it today.

Aloe vera is known as “the miracle plant”, and contains 75 potentially active constituents: vitamins, enzymes, minerals, sugars, lignin, saponins, salicylic acids, and amino acids.

Here’s a quick rundown of what aloe can do for you:

-Accelerate gut healing

-Reduce inflammation

-Stimulate your immune system

-Moisturize and protect your skin from premature aging

-Protect against infection from fungi, bacteria like H. pylori, and viruses

-And it has even been shown to inhibit cancer growth

In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 30 ulcerative colitis patients given 100 ml (3 oz) of aloe vera twice per day, 9 achieved remission and 11 had clinical improvement in just four weeks.

Enter Acemannan.

Acemannan is the superhero compound in aloe with immunostimulant, antiviral, and antineoplastic (anti-cancer) powers.

Acemannan induces your macrophages to secrete three anti-cancer compounds: interferon, tumor necrosis factor-α, and interleukins.

So yeah, aloe is one amazing little super plant.

I’ve consumed lots of different brands of aloe over the years, but last year I found what I believe is the highest quality aloe vera on the market.

Stockton Aloe #1, founded by Rodney Stockton in 1953.

Rodney lived to be 96 and credited his long life and good health to the daily consumption of aloe.

Stockton Aloe #1 is 100% pure, raw, hand-fileted, unfiltered, preservative-free aloe vera gel.

And it’s the only brand I’ve found that can be consumed in high doses without giving you the runs. 8 oz per day is recommended for healthy folks. 24oz per day is considered to be the maximum therapeutic dose.

I typically put 6-8 oz in my smoothies. My wife likes to drink it straight.

Stockton Aloe is the best of the best!
