The Many Uses of Aloe Vera
You might think that aloe vera is only good for skin burns, but there are so many more practical uses -- even for the inside of your body.

In fact, you can actually drink aloe vera to improve immune function, heal the lining of your intestinal tract (and also help address acid reflux), balance blood sugar, improve the level of antioxidants in your blood, and so much more.

It may also improve the absorption of certain vitamins within your bloodstream.

It is safe to take on a daily basis, as long as you find a good, organic, preservative-free variety.

Join guest, Martie Whittekin, as she explains the many healthy uses of aloe vera, as well as some of the research behind the benefits.
