I was introduced to Aloe when I was about 11 years old. My grandad grew Aloe plants on the side of his house. One day my mom took around the side after I had a scratch. She plucked a leaf and then applied all this gooey stuff to my wound. I thought that was the coolest thing, that this plant could help my wound heal faster. But it wasn’t until my adult years that I saw my grandaddy ingest his homemade Aloe juice from a mason jar he kept in the fridge. I was like... I didn’t know you could drink it!! And he had always done it. We so country. Descendants of sharecroppers. But I love it.
3 HEALTH BENEFITS OF ALOE VERA
So speed up to now, I just ran across a video of a woman who is about 83 years old, but appears to be closer to 30. Two of her secrets was a vegan lifestyle AND sipping Aloe water from a mason jar. My mouth hit the floor. Here was this fountain of youth cure and I had already been exposed to it. So the next time I went to Publix I grabbed a leaf and brought it home. I ended up cutting it up and placing it in a glass jar and poured water over it. It didn't take long before the Aloe oozed out and became one with the water.
The only drawback to this healthy plant is its bitter taste. OMG this stuff is so bitter. I've never tasted anything quite like it. But if you can get around the tart taste, you can definitely move closer towards a healthier plus size lifestyle. My granddad would sip maybe a few ounces per day and leave it in the fridge to ooze and make more. And so that's what I have been doing. Just a sip here and there everyday. So far I've noticed my appetite has been suppressed and I feel healthy inside.
