The clean9 and aloe are different from other plans as we intend to rid of the toxins in our body. The body holds on to fat as a protection mechanism from the toxins so, if we get rid if the toxins the body let’s go of the fat. This also helps us to keep the health benefits much longer post cleanse. Helps us not to Yoyo and go straight back to how they started before.

This video shows the difference between the standard Aloe Vera ‘juice’ sold in stores such as Holland and Barratt, and how we compare. The juice these companies sell includes the outer leaf of the aloe plant (plus all the sugars!), this is not good for you. The inner gel is the only part of the plant we should be putting in our bodies and has the most benefit to us.
