What Is It?
Despite its name, heartburn actually is not associated with the heart. Heartburn is related to a digestive disorder which occurs when the lining of the oesophagus has been in contact with stomach acids, thus causing an irritation.
At the entrance of the stomach is a muscle that prevents acids from reaching the oesophagus by closing off after food is swallowed. Heartburn occurs when the oesophagus doesn’t fully contract and the muscle is unable to tighten up completely, thus allowing acids to back up.
Our digestive system is quite large, bigger than what we would actually imagine. If you were to unwind it completely it would measure out to be about 30 feet. So that means that anything that is passed through our mouths has to make the whole way through the 30 foot long digestive track. It’s important to note that each part of our digestive system has a vital role to play, like our stomach for example; it breaks down food by mixing it with acids and enzymes. The small intestine provides good bacteria, most of us know about good bacteria. They help digest food and absorb it for delivery into the bloodstream. The large intestine takes the salts and waters out of your food. It also needs good bacteria to break down any undigested material that may be left over.
So even if, one part of your digestive system is not functioning perfectly, you will end up knowing about it through some form of digestive disorder, most commonly heartburn.
What Can Help?
“The use of aloe vera will be the most important single step forward in the treatment of diseases in the history of mankind.”
Dr. McDaniel, M.D., Chief of Pathology, Dallas-Fort Worth Medical Centre
Aloe vera can be just as effective on the inside as it is on the outside of our bodies. For many years people have been drinking aloe vera and reaping the health benefits from it, including relief from heartburn. Others have found it may be very beneficial for detoxifying the body, cleansing the colon, improving digestion and circulation, helping heal ulcers and purifying the blood stream. It is also said that aloe vera juice may be beneficial for a person suffering with intestinal or stomach problems. Aloe Vera may also aid the digestive tract to operate smoothly. The miraculous Aloe leaf has 200 compounds, including 20 minerals, 18 amino acids & 12 vitamins. Aloe vera gel juice is favoured by those looking to maintain a healthy digestive system and gain a natural boost in energy.
Protease, Lipase and Amylase are just some of the good quality ingredients found in them that are needed for our digestive system.
Serrapeptase is another important ingredient that works on preventing and removing away any dead tissues and unhealthy inflammations. Heartburn over a long period of time can cause inflammation and scarring in the oesophagus; serrapeptase aids in calming down the inflammation and starts the healing process on any scar tissues.
