The ZEN Cocktail of health drinks. Mix it with your favourite juice or just drink it straight.
This is a tonic that everyone should take daily.
This remarkable composition of nutrients in one source is unique -
Amino Acids, (Aloe Vera -Barbadensis-Miller- provides 20 of the 22 human required amino acids and 7 of the 8 essential amino acids); Hormones, (i.e. Auxins and gibberellins that help in wound healing and have anti-inflammatory action); the Fatty acids you want, (It provides 4 plant steroids; cholesterol, campesterol, β-sisosterol and lupeol. All these have anti-inflammatory action and lupeol also possesses antiseptic and analgesic properties), Anthraquinones, (they provide 12 anthraquinones, which are phenolic compounds traditionally known as laxatives. Aloin and emodin act as analgesics, antibacterials and antivirals); all the good Sugars, (which provide monosacch- arides - glucose and fructose- and polysaccharides- glucomannans/polymannose. These are derived from the mucilage layer of the plant and are known as mucopolysaccharides.
The most prominent monosaccharide is mannose-6-phosphate, and the most common polysaccharides are called glucomannans [beta-(1,4)-acetylated mannan], acemannan, a prominent glucomannan has also been found. Recently, a glycoprotein with antiallergic properties, called alprogen and novel anti-inflammatory compound, C-glucosyl chromone, has been isolated from Aloe Vera gel. It also enhances the penetrative effect of the other ingredients into the skin. Saponins that are the soapy substances form about 3% of the gel and have cleansing and antiseptic properties.
Now that all the easy stuff is out of the way let me quote the proprietor of Aloe Fresh, a long time daily drinker of Aloe Vera Juice -
" I have it when I'm hungry and I have it when I'm not, I have it when I'm thirsty and then I have a lot, I have it when the pressure is on and that's most of the time, I have it when I'm stressed but that's much less -the Aloe Juice I guess - but mostly I have when I'm feeling alive which is all the time and I know that the Aloe Juice works miracles in me and I feel physically higher. Basically, It's a love affair - my love potion number 9."
