For most of us, keeping our diet in check means having great digestion and feeling good. But not all of us. A lot of healthy people have stomach issues that stem from digestion problems. So what can we do besides eat healthy and be good? Lots of stuff!!

aloe vera juice
Aloe has very high levels of phytosterols - which is a compound that helps to reduce visceral fat (the fat that surrounds your vital organs). The same phytosterols also help to control your blood sugar which in turns helps your body to stop storing fat in the midsection. Phytosterols have also been known to increase your metabolism (to give you more energy) and aid in burning fat. Aloe will help to eliminate waste more effectively because it contains aloin (aloin stimulates gut activity).
