Anti-Aging Tips

Blog

Sound too good to be true?🧐

Well I am here to tell you there is such a thing as anti-aging elixir and I drink it at least 3 days a week.

Now if you are expecting to

  • sing a song (“Flower gleam and glow, let your power shine….”),
  • drink the magic elixir
  • and POOF!
  • You are 21 again! (Any Tangled fans out there? You know what I’m saying!)

anyway you will be sorely disappointed.😞

Life just doesn’t work that way.

That was harsh, I know.

The anti-aging elixir does some wonderful things for you and is no secret, in fact I’m sure you have heard somebody talk about it at some point in time. Even my husband heard it at work and came home to tell me about it (although I told him about it months before and he didn’t hear me).

Here it is….. drum role please……….🥁

Anti-Aging Elixir recipe

6-8 oz of drinking water

1-2 TBS of organic raw unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar

2 tsp of quality honey

stir or shake well then let sit a few minutes

drink slowly and follow with a cup of water

best time to do this is first thing in the morning before you eat

can be done 2 times a day

(For a little variation sometimes I warm the water before mixing, so it’s like warm apple cider. I read somewhere that it was supposed to make it work better but I don’t notice a difference so I just do it for a change.)

Now that you have the recipe, you ask

“What in tarnation does it do for you!?!”🤔

Well let me put my nerd glasses on and I will tell you.🤓

It makes your body alkaline instead of acidic.

You see when your body is acidic (which most people are due to our way life and prepackaged foods) it opens you up to disease and germs. Drinking the anti-aging elixir can correct excess acidity in your system and make you alkaline (in balance). When this happens your body can fight germs and ailments such as osteoporosis, brittle bones, joint pains, aching muscles, low energy, chronic fatigue and slow digestion. All of which are major aging issues.

I guess the big question is “does it work?” 🤔

Yes it does, I will tell you I have been drinking this at least 3 days a week for almost a year now. When I go too long without drinking it my knees hurt badly and my workout is so much harder. I try to be consistent which is what I would suggest to you. If you can drink it every day when you wake up that is fantastic you are doing better than me.

Don’t beat yourself up if you can’t, I have had success with 3 days a week. Do what works best for you.

Thank you so much for reading! Have a wonderful day and God bless!!

Hello my peeps!! Thanks for tuning in to the second half of Anti-Aging Benefits of Aloe Vera Plant, if you haven’t read the first half you can do that here.

The first half was focused on using aloe externally, now I want to focus on using aloe internally. I believe that taking aloe internally has the best benefit for you, for your health and to fight the aging process.

One of the biggest benefits for anti-aging is it reduces inflammation. Inflammation is one of the leading causes to aging quickly. Many debilitating age diseases such as alzheimers and rheumatoid arthritis are linked to swelling. Keeping inflammation down gives your body a fighting chance.img_2905

The first thing you need to know and understand when deciding to take it internally  is that not all of the Aloe Vera plant is safe to ingest. Below is a diagram that will show you the different parts.

This is not my plant (although I wish it was).

  • Skin (hard green outer shell)- not safe for consumption
  • Latex (yellow, bitter tasting slime between shell and gel)- safe in very small amounts for most people
  • Gel (Clear meaty center of leaf)- safe for consumption

 

 

Getting the gel out to consume is much like slicing the leaf to apply to the skin. Rinse the leaf under water to remove dirt. Cut the end off you are planning on ingesting. I do not cut the whole leaf unless it is very small, I only cut to where I am going to consume at that time. Now here is where things change a little. Cut as close as you can to one side so most of the gel is on one side, so you are basically cutting off the skin on one side. Lay the leaf skin side down, using the flat side of the knife scrape off the gel.

Once you get that blob of gel off, you will want to get the latex off as you will not want to ingest it all. You have a few options here, you can hold the gel under running water to get the latex (slimy part) off, (which I feel is a total waste since the latex is oh so very good for your skin). Keeping in mind that my hands and face are clean when I start this process, I rub the gel on my hands until the gel is no longer slimy. Then I cut it up a bit and swallow it with some juice or water.

Then I take the remaining 2 skin pieces that have all the latex on them and rub them all over my face and anywhere I feel needs it. Usually my shoulders get a lot of sun living in Florida so I tend to rub some on there as well.

Once those pieces are dry, throw them away then all that’s left is cleaning up. If I have some leaf left over (which you can see in my picture I do), I seal it into a plastic bag and store it in the fridge. If you intend to consume it you must consume it within 48 hours from pulling it from the plant to get any internal benefit, otherwise you can still use it on the skin for about a week.

I love the aloe vera plant and all the good things it can do for you, hopefully this inspires you to get a few plants of your own to use.

Now a few things that I feel are important for me to differentiate.

  • Please seek the advice from a doctor before starting any supplement especially one like this as it has a lot of health benefits and if you are taking medication you may need to adjust dose.
  • If after consulting a doctor, be sure to start with small amounts to see if you will have any allergic reactions and give your body time to adjust to it, then you can up the amounts as you go.
  • This is only for the plant NOT for the many varieties of gels and juices out there. I am not condemning them however I know the aloe gels that are sold in stores are more gel than aloe (like 90-10, aloe being 10 percent and I think I am being generous here), so be aware. I don’t know enough about the juices to know if they are good. In my opinion nothing can replace the all natural straight from the plant, gel.

Thank you so much for coming back for the second (and much longer) half of my Aloe Vera plant post.

Have a wonderful day and God bless!!
