Ah, the blissfulness of morning. Each day we are blessed with a new beginning. Morning is a perfect time to reset your digestion and start the day off on a good note.

Aloe Vera

You may have used aloe gel on your skin to soothe a sunburn, but it’s also incredible for your digestion. No, I don’t mean the toxic bright green junk at the corner store, but 100% pure organic food-grade aloe vera juice or gel.

Just as aloe vera gel reduces inflammation of a red sunburnt area on your skin, aloe vera soothes the GI tract and relaxes an upset stomach. This is important because the root of most digestive issues is inflammation in the gut. Aloe vera is anti-inflammatory and helps relax an inflamed gut.
