Colic Relief with Aloe Vera

happy-baby2Is there any more helpless feeling than not knowing how to sooth a crying baby?

Colic is a perplexing condition when a baby cries and can not be consoled for no apparent reason.  Some health care providers think it may be triggered by digestive distress such as gas, cramps, constipation, bloating, heartburn or acid reflux.  The cause of these type of physical manifestations can include allergies, lactose-intolerance, or other unidentified conditions.

Consider a high quality aloe vera juice  drink to help calm and sooth a wide range of intestinal difficulties.

Aloe vera has been turned to since ancient times for a myriad of health issues from acne and allergies to cancer and colitis.  In addition to being an antioxidant, it is antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal.  When taken internally aloe vera juice provides vitamins, minerals, enzymes, promotes healthy digestion and enhances immune response.

Unfortunately, aloe vera juice products are also routinely altered and diluted with other chemicals which can significantly diminish or negate the effectiveness of this amazing plant.  Fortunately there is a certifying council for aloe vera products called the International Aloe Science Council.  Because manufacturers are not required to get this certification, many aloe vera products do not have the stringent purity and potency standards necessary for IASC certification.

If you have tasted aloe vera juices, the palatability ranges immensely.  I have tried some aloe vera juice that I had to literally spit out because it tasted so bad! The bitter taste is typically associated with a compound in the plant called aloin.  Aloin also has laxative properties which can cause intestinal distress.  Aloin can be removed and is not found in high quality aloe vera drinks.

The best tasting and most effective aloe vera juice I have found is a product called Ultimate Aloe® Juice.

Ultimate Aloe™ Juice is made from 100 percent aloe vera, 50 percent aloe concentrated powder, more than 200 nutrients, enzymes, vitamins and minerals, including 13 of the 17 essential minerals needed for good nutrition.  It also has the IASC seal that certifies its aloe content and purity (it contains no aloin). The processing methods used to create Ultimate Aloe™ Juice have the highest levels of sanitation and purity while preserving the natural properties of the plant.  Independent testing confirms that Ultimate Aloe™ Juice contains three times more polymers and 50% more active components than required for ideal benefit when consumed orally. Polymers enhance cellular oxygenation and enable blood to work more efficiently.

On top of that – it tastes fantastic! My family’s favorite is the Cranberry-Apple. Many families that I know use Ultimate Aloe™ Juice regularly for all members, including the little ones.  Depending on the age of the child, I’d recommend diluting about one ounce of Ultimate Aloe™ Juice (many children enjoy the Strawberry-Kiwi flavor) with water and putting it into their tippy cup.  For colicky babies under the age of two, many moms have had success with a daily teaspoon or two of the Natural (unflavored) Ultimate Aloe™ Juice.

Ultimate Aloe™ Juice is also available in a dehydrated form which comes in very portable and easy to travel with packets. Look for Ultimate Aloe™ Powder in all the same flavors.
