Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe vera gel aids in digestion and can relieve constipation,diarrhea and intestinal issues. Used for more than 3500 years as an anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial, there is evidence that Cleopatra used aloe to keep her skin supple. The vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids in aloe vera may also improve healing, kill bacteria and fungus.

Apples and Pectin

Apple pectin is a soluble dietary fiber that helps maintain digestive health and can lower cholesterol. Pectin may also help prevent colon cancer and gallstones, regulate blood pressure and help treat ulcers and colitis. Juices are often low in fiber, so including pectin differentiates Forever Living Aloe Berry Nectar from other juices.

Apples are high in vitamin C, B6 and K and potassium, magnesium, manganese and copper. The phytonutrients in apples may help regulate blood sugar, because of their high flavonoid content which can slow down the enzymes that convert complex carbohydrates into sugar.

Cranberries

Cranberries are high in Vitamin C, E, K, B5 and B6. Cranberries contain proanthocyanidin, an antioxidant flavonoid that can help prevent heart disease and cancer. They also detoxify and support urinary tract health. New research suggests cranberries may help prevent kidney stones, help stroke victims recover and may prevent cancer. Fresh cranberries have the highest nutrition content and are in season in the U.S. in October, November and December.
