Aloe Vera Gel

The aloe vera plant itself which has been around for thousands of years has at least 75 known ingredients that work together to give us one of nature's truly most potent cocktails.

While many companies make aloe vera gel, Forever's aloe gel contains the highest amount of aloe vera - it is essentially the same as consuming the aloe vera gel directly from an aloe leaf.

Forever use ONLY the inner gel - the gel from INSIDE the leaf which is important to note as some products are made using the whole leaf.



The Goodness Inside Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe vera gel has been found to have some amazing effects on the body because of all the nutrients it contains.  The first thing to mention is how drinking aloe vera gel can help to cleanse the digestive system and ensure better nutrient absorption.

Every section of the small intestine absorbs a different nutrient but from eating a diet high in processed food, nutrients are often blocked from being absorbed and whatever part of the intestine is blocked, you will be deficient in that nutrient.

Aloe vera gel gently cleanses and unblocks the villi where absorbtion takes place - this means that your body will again be able to make use of all the nutrients coming from the foods eaten.

Natural Source of Vitamins

Aloe Vera contains a large range of vitamins, many which cannot be stored by the body and which need to be topped up from the food we eat.

A, C & E - antioxidant vitamins - vital to combat free radicals which can cause lots of damage to the body as well as triggering all kinds of things, premature aging for one.

B Vitamins - needed for energy and to help metabolise amino acids which helps to develop muscle mass.  Aloe vera is also a natural source of B12 - essential for making red blood cells and is rarely found in plants.

Natural Source of Minerals

Some of the minerals found in aloe vera include calcium, sodium, potassium, iron, chromium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc.  While all of these minerals are important and have a role to play in how well the body functions, zinc in particular plays a large part in the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fats.  Chromium also helps to control blood sugar levels.

Other Benefits of Aloe Vera
  • Provides 19 of the 20 amino acids the body needs and 7 of the 8 essential amino acids that the body cannot make.
  • It improves circulation
  • Improves metabolic disorders
  • It is an adaptagen - it adapts to the body and what the body needs.
  • Aloe vera is a natural balancer - regulates yeast and bacteria in the body
  • Boosts the immune system.

As you can see, the amount of nutrients contained in the aloe vera gel will ensure you have everything your body requires to function at 100%.  Drinking a large amount of aloe vera during the first 2 days of the Clean 9 program ensure that your digestive system is cleansed, your body can absorb the nutrients it takes in, the toxins in your body are eliminated and your body is in great shape, particularly to lose weight as it can be difficult to lose weight if toxins surround your fat cells.

FOREVER GARCINIA PLUS


forever garcinia plus
The garcinia used in Forever Garcinia Plus is a natural extract from the fruit of a tree known as garcinia cambogia or malabar tamarind, in southern Asia.

The words "revolutionary nutritional supplement" have been associated with garcinia because it is a natural appetite suppressant and contains a number of ingredients that may help with losing weight.

Some appetite suppressants on the market work on the central nervous system but Forever Garcinia Plus is not a stimulant of any kind.


How Garcinia Works

During normal metabolism of a meal, the body utilizes calories from the carbohydrates consumed for energy.  It also stores some in the muscles as glycogen for more energy . If there is even more calories at this point, what normally happens is that the body converts these calories to fat in the liver so there is a store for another time.

Garcinia essentially stops the ennzyme which carries out this process from working and when this happens, the body turns to the fat it has already stored to burn calories which in turn helps with weight loss.

Forever have combined the mineral chromium with their garcinia because it has many benefits not only associated with weight loss and many of us are deficient in this mineral since it is not commonly found in the modern diet.

Chromium is a blood sugar balancer, evening out energy and food cravings.

There are two other ingredients in Forever Garcinia Plus which are important for overall cardiovascular health and energising the body quickly - these are healthy or fatless fats, safflower oil and MCT (medium chain triglycerides).


Forever Lite Ultra With Aminotein Shake

The forever lite ultra shake with aminotein is a high protein meal replacement shake.

It is made from soy protein and has some advantages over using a combination of both whey protein and soy.

Not only is it soy protein but soy isolate which contains all the essential amino acids your body needs. It is low in fat and saturated fat and 1 shake provides 50% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamins and minerals.

It is the only protein with a proven health claim as per a study done by the FDA -

"25g of soy protein a day, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.”  

One Forever Lite ultra Shake provides 17 g of soy isolate protein.

People drink protein shakes for many reasons, ie sports people, body builders, vegetarians and people who are on the go but want to ensure they are getting proper nutrition and the reason they drink them is to get more protein.  The most important thing to remember about any protein is how much is actually available to the body - can it be absorbed?

Protein, especially high quantities of protein can be difficult to break down but Forever have included aminotein with their protein shakes to ensure the body can fully utilize the protein taken in.

 ** Aminotein **

 

Aminotein is a patented enzyme system - it is a unique blend of enzymes designed specifically to work on the protein, breaking it down fast into amino acids that will be absorbed completely by the body.
