Aloe Vera
According to Dr. Oz more than 60 million Americans experience heartburn or GERD (acid reflux) symptoms at least once a month. To help treat and prevent GERD you can utilize the healing qualities of Aloe Vera juice. When taken internally, Aloe Vera helps to soothe an irritated esophagus to help treat acid reflux. Make sure to not take Aloe Vera directly from the plant as a home remedy, as the gel can be contaminated with the aloe latex which is not recommended as an internal treatment. Hanna Kroeger’s Aloe Leaf Gel helps to prevent intestinal difficulties and heartburn and is an overall immune booster and general healing tonic.
