Aloe C Defense
Aloe vera has been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine, both
topically and orally, for skin care, dietary supplements and herbal beverages.
While you may be most familiar with Aloe vera as a salve for sunburn, taken
orally, it promotes gastrointestinal health and contains powerful antioxidants.
When you add Vitamin C to Aloe vera, you get a new combination with significant
benefits. A recent study conducted by Dr. Joe Vinson at Scranton University
concluded that consuming Vitamin E or Vitamin C with Aloe vera increased the
half-life of those vitamins in blood plasma. This research suggests that you can
increase the bioavailability of Vitamin C when it is combined with Aloe vera.
Vitamin C is a nutritional star on its own. While no one claims it can cure the
common cold, it may help you feel a whole lot better by reducing a cold’s
severity and duration. In fact, one study showed Vitamin C reduced the duration
of a common cold by 21%, while another found it reduced both the severity and
length of respiratory infections in a group of marathon runners.
But the Vitamin C story doesn’t end there. Other studies show that Vitamin C may
protect against free radical damage to the eye lens. An ongoing nurse’s health
study found that women using Vitamin C supplementation long term had healthier
eyes and a 77% lower risk of eye problems, compared to women who did not take
the supplement. Of course, it is important to eat a healthy diet, too. Remember
to eat plenty of Vitamin C-rich foods like kale, spinach and oranges.
