Drink Aloe Vera for Anxiety, but Not Just Any Aloe Drink

anxiety-free Jan 27, 2021

Aloe vera is a gelatinous substance obtained from a succulent plant that grows in tropical climates. It has been suggested that it has antidiabetic, antioxidative, and—more important for those experiencing anxiety—neuroprotective effects. There is a chemical mechanism in aloe that protects neurons in the hippocampus, a brain structure embedded in the temporal lobe of the cerebral cortex that participates in regulating motivation, emotion, memory, and learning.1 Research shows it improves behavioral deficits associated with anxiety, such as lethargy, concentration, and memory difficulties.

You can harvest pulp directly from an aloe plant yourself and blend it to make it a drinkable liquid, or buy fresh aloe juice from a store. Fresh blended is ideal. To the best of my knowledge, there is only one aloe company in the United States that sells raw and unfiltered aloe juice, which is flash-frozen when it is fresh and packaged without preservatives, Aloe 1 use this link https://aloe1.com/shop/aloe-1-58-oz-incl-aloe-cream/?ref=56 and you will get an extra bonus gift of a complimentary aloe lotion, so great for the skin! You want pure aloe with no preservatives or anything else added. Aloe juice sold in supermarkets and organic food stores typically contains some preservatives to make it shelf-stable.
