Going to a beach on a sunny day, playing, swimming and relaxing for a while seems like a good idea. It is the much-needed break that we all desire after a hectic work week. Now we won’t ask you the age old question, “Have you ever thought about all the harm the UV-A and UV-B rays can cause to your skin?” And we won’t ask you this question because we know you already know about all this. And that’s a bummer, that while you want to enjoy the bright sunlight; you’ve got to deal with the harmful rays too, isn’t it?
Overexposure to sunlight can cause blistering, nausea, chills, skin burns etc. But nothing can stop you from having a bright day of fun if you know what to do about it. This is where one of the great blessings of Mother Nature comes to your aid, Aloe Vera.
One of the major parts of sunburn is dehydration. While having plenty of water is recommended by most, just having plain water won’t help you replenish the minerals you lose due to sweating. Including aloe vera juice and aloe vera mixed energy drinks can help you rejuvenate your mineral content while also rehydrating you from within.
Aloe vera also happens to be a natural and effective relief for sunburn. All you need to do is apply aloe vera gel on the skin to help soothe and heal your sun damaged skin. Even if you did not get a sunburn, after you’ve had your fair share of sunbathing, use aloe vera to rehydrate your skin.
And not just sunburn, aloe vera is great for other healthy reasons too!
Not just sunburn, aloe vera is also amazingly effective in healing cuts and wounds. There are many people who are allergic to anti inflammatory medicines, and aloe vera comes in handy for them. Due to its soothing properties, it is also a great after shave.
–Rich source of Vitamin
Aloe vera is a rich source of Vitamins A, B2, B6, B12, C and E. Since our body can’t store vitamins as they are constantly used by us, drinking aloe vera juice regularly can help us replenish the lost vitamins. Nothing beats the awesomeness of getting your vitamins from natural sources and not relying on medicines and multi-vitamins capsules. Apart from that, aloe also packs a punch of folic acid and niacin in plenty.
Note that there’s a difference between supplement capsules that derive these vitamins from natural sources and packed in gelatin or normal capsule casing and those medicines that are synthetic sources.
As we all know that amino acids are the building blocks of protein and we need them to keep our muscles healthy, it’s also a fact that amino acids help us in keeping a healthy BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate). Aloe vera packs more than eight important amino acids, so it won’t be an overstatement in saying that drinking aloe vera juice on regular basis is really good for your health.
