Digestive Benefits of Aloe Vera
Aloe vera isn't just for treating your sunburn. 

In fact, it can be taken internally to improve digestive health (especially for addressing acid reflux), support your immune system, reduce harmful toxins, increase nutrient absorption and soothe occasional muscle and joint discomfort.

Acid reflux is a problem for many individuals, and our fast food, processed food society doesn't help much. 

Pharmaceutical and OTC acid reducers work to eliminate acid reflux, but they can have unwanted side effects, including destroying and blocking the necessary acid in your stomach.

Aloe balances your stomach acid naturally and doesn't inhibit your natural digestive acid. It brings your digestive pH back into balance.

Another benefit is that when taken orally, aloe can coat your esophagus and start to heal it.

Listen in as Jack Brown of Lily of the Desert joins hosts Andrea Donsky and Lisa Davis to share more about the benefits of aloe, both externally and internally.
