Aloe has been used not only for its cosmetic purposes but also for its medicinal properties. It contains ingredients that can neutralize toxins, clean the colon, encourage cell regeneration and boost the immune system. Although there not a lot of reported allergic reactions to aloe, it’s still best to consult your doctor before purchasing an aloe vera product. Another reason why you want to consult your doctor is you want to make sure you are in good health before starting the detoxification process. If you are currently taking some medications, don’t forget to mention this to your clinician as well.
Purchase an aloe vera product that is intended for detoxification. You can find detoxification products at your local health food store. Start the procedure with a small dose of aloe detoxification or cleaning juice. Remember that there are different levels of concentration and you have to read the instructions carefully so you can follow the recommended dosage. Always start slow so that you’ll know if you are sensitive to some side effects or if you will develop certain allergic reactions. For most juices, the recommended dosage is 25 ml once or twice a day.
What do you have to expect when taking an aloe vera product that is intended for detoxification? You will have frequent trips to the bathroom, that’s for sure. Since the colon is one of the main collectors of toxins in the body and aloe provides a laxative effect, the toxin buildup will loosen. This will be flushed out through your system. Repeat this process on a regular basis to keep your immune system at its tip-top shape. This will also help free your body of toxins and free radicals. Aloe is proven to be relatively safe whenever you need to detoxify.
Look for products that have at least 90% of aloe. If you can’t stand the taste of the juice you can mix it with your favorite fruit juice. You can also opt for the aloe capsules to make everything more convenient for you.
