Symptoms of IBS:

Irritable bowel syndrome is a functional disorder of the digestive tract and is caused due to the derangement of normal functioning of the intestines. The stomach lags behind in absorbing the vital nutrients from the food. Regular constipation, bloatedness, pain and difficulty in passing stool, abdominal pain and discomfort, etc are commonly seen in IBS patients.

The good news is that irritable bowel syndrome can be treated with the miraculous Aloe Vera juice or extract.

Aloe Vera is effective in soothing the disturbed intestines. It is available in gel, liquid or capsule form. Being mild on the intestines, aloe Vera helps in healing the inflammation and aid proper functioning of the digestive tract.

The aloe juice is helpful in cleansing the digestive system and eliminates the toxins from your system. The toxins are responsible for messing up with the functioning of your system and are a source of disease invasion.

Various enzymes are found in Aloe Vera juice, responsible for breaking the undigested food and facilitating the process of digestion.

It is very important for you to understand the functioning of your intestines. The food after ingestion is broken down into smaller particles. The nutrients present in it are absorbed by the digestive tract. The good bacteria found in the digestive tract separate the healthy nutrients from the harmful toxins which are later on eliminated from the body. An improper unhealthy diet hampers this normal process of nutrient absorption and toxin elimination.

The harmful toxins are not properly removed from your body and this interferes with the absorption of nutrients in the blood stream. The toxins get collected in the colon and lead to problematic situations such as IBS, fatigue or malnutrition. The condition deteriorates further if left uncared.

Aloe Vera gel has extraordinary medicinal qualities. It has analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. The lining of stomach is affected by the IBS and becomes interrupted. Aloe Vera helps in healing the tissues of the lining.

Aloe Vera plant has a chemical ‘make up’ that is more close to that of human beings than that of plants. Eating processed foods that are devoid of healthy nutrients is a chief cause of digestive or intestinal problems. Aloe Vera extract is helpful in restoring the digestive tract to its balanced optimum condition despite the damaging effects of processed diet.

The enzymes of Aloe Vera can rectify the functioning of digestive system and colon, a marked improvement in the IMS symptoms is noted. There is remarkable decrease in the discomforting symptoms such as heartburn, bloating, constipation and gastric problem. Better results are seen with regular consumption of aloe Vera and a healthy dietary pattern.

Aloe Vera Pill or Gel/Juice:

Aloe Vera is available in juice/gel, powder or pill form. You can take as per your convenience and availability. Some people find taking pill or capsule owing to its handy nature. There is no handling of unpleasant taste and swallowing pill is comparatively easy.

Not all Aloe Vera products found in drugstore are meant for ‘drinking purposes’. Most of them are for local application as in burns or rashes. Consume only ‘ready-to-drink’ juice or gel. You can get them from any health and wellness store or even online.

In the end it can said that the distressing condition of IBS can be well treated by taking proper fiber rich diet and Aloe Vera regularly.

Aloe Vera will not only make your skin shiny and blemish-free but will also keep you digestive system healthy. Now that’s called double skin and health benefit!
