Hi, I’m Dr. Carolee Johnson with Quantum Techniques and today, I’m going to talk about aloe vera. Aloe vera has many healing properties and I use it in my own natural lotion and it definitely helps my skin. I was really interested to recently discover that aloe vera stimulates stem cell production in the body, so it stimulates your own stem cells to regenerate your organs, tissues and glands.
In the studies undertaken on the topic, they used aloe vera juice and gel, which you can get on Amazon.com. Purchasing a good organic aloe vera juice is a nice and easy alternate to making your own juice by cutting into a plant. One thing to keep in mind, it does contain a little bit of sap, which can act as a stool softener. The studies showed a significant increase, 53%, of stem cell activation within just an hour, and after three hours elapsed those stem cells were still showing up as significant in the body. So you can take an aloe vera supplement every so often during the day, to keep those stem cells activating and in turn, healing your body more efficiently.
Today I have Jacob in the kitchen helping me. He’s going to cut a piece of aloe vera and start peeling it. You can get big chunks of aloe vera at your local market or you can grow your own aloe vera plant and do the same thing, it just takes a little longer. Anyway, peel off the outside piece and cut off those spines and then peel the rest of it. The reason that we remove the green part is it contains the sap, which is what stimulates the peristaltic action in your colon and causes explosive diarrhea. Once all of the sap is removed, rinse the chunk of aloe vera in water before blending it up as part of a green smoothie. Some people will put it into juice as well.
