Aloe Vera, Children & Nutrition
We all know that nutrition is vital for all of us, but none more so than for growing children.
As we race into the 21st century, we’re looking for a world of convenience and speed. We’re living and working – and eating – faster than ever before.
And it’s not all good news – as Jamie Oliver’s TV series ‘School Dinners’ about school meals illustrated. Now more and more schools are starting to provide, or take into account, the idea of what constitutes a really healthy meal for children.
Most school lunches consist of burgers, pizzas, chips and crisps, with sugary drinks… High fat, high salt, high sugar – not a great recipe for healthy, thriving kids; and certainly not conducive to an afternoon of quiet learning!
Speaking to school teachers, they talk of placing the asthma inhalers at the back of the classroom for the kids to line up and take their inhalers after lunch. Is there any coincidence that this need dropped dramatically after the school started providing healthy lunches? Is there a link between diet and allergies?

Of course! We all know that peanuts can cause a devastating effect on some people. Equally some foods can cause sensitivities in people. Not as dramatic as peanuts maybe, but add them together, and over the longer term, they can still be very damaging.
They can cause skin problems, stomach problems, headaches, rashes, asthma, sleeping difficulties, digestive upsets, increased frequencies of coughs and colds, depressed immune system, lethargy, decreased attention span, learning difficulties… need I go on?
Sugar, salt, fats… usually the culprits.
Children seem to gravitate towards sweet and salt foods. Just look at any kids party and it’s amazing to see the array of sweets, crisps and junk food. Nothing wrong with having fun and having birthday cake — but does everything have to be so bad for you?
So how do you ensure your child is getting adequate nutrition? How can you ensure your child is getting a wide range of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other vital nutrients in today’s fast-paced world, as well as enjoying the occasional ‘treat’?
Aloe Vera is probably the answer.
Aloe Vera has been used for centuries as a medicinal ‘wonder plant’ that has a wide range of effects on a number of conditions from skin complaints and sunburn, to stomach and bowel problems. Yet, the true power of Aloe Vera is only just being realised today.
The reason it works so well on such a wide range of conditions, is that it contains a huge number of vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and amino acids — in a balance that the body can absorb readily and easily. And this is the magic of Aloe Vera – not that it cures anything itself; but it provides all the nutrients the body needs. The body can then use the nutrients, which it might have been missing, to heal and repair itself.
One of the main benefits of Aloe Vera is that it strengthens the immune system. So kids stop getting quite as many coughs and colds as they used to; and when they do get them, they recover far more quickly. Good news – it has no negative side-effects. And it’s perfectly safe for infants and children.
Aloe Vera also helps with recovery from bumps, bruises, and common allergies, as well as tummy upsets. And many people have reported that their child has decreased their need for their allergy medications since taking Aloe Vera.
All in all, aloe vera is a completely natural extract that is loaded with minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, antimicrobials and anti inflammatory agents.
Because aloe vera has quite a bitter taste, we’ve found an aloe vera pill is often easier for a child to take. For an infant, you can simply sprinkle the powder into a beaker of juice. It’s the most potent Aloe Vera extract on earth. It’s 2.73 times more potent than any other Aloe Vera supplement that you can buy in the high street. Which also means that it’s the fastest acting aloe vera supplement you can buy.
It’s had some impressive and dramatic results with a wide variety of conditions. But most importantly, it’s a very effective preventative measure in a tiny pill. All the vitamins, minerals, amino acids and anti-oxidants a growing child (or adult) could need.
