I went out today and purchased three different brands of Aloe Vera juice to try. I’m going to follow the directions and conduct a taste test for each. But first, a little about the benefits of adding Aloe Vera juice into your diet.
Aloe Vera contains 19 amino acids, 20 minerals, and 12 vitamins. Just adding 2-4 oz to your diet can help in the following ways:
1. Improve Circulation
2. Regulate Blood Pressure
3. Promote the healing of bones and joints
4. Strengthen the immune system
5. Defend the body against bacteria
6. Heal internal tissue damage
7. Heal ulcers
8. Helps to control stomach acid and maintain a balance in the stomach.
9. Improve and eliminate constipation
10. Improve/Regulate blood sugar levels
11. Reduce the itchiness of psoriasis so it can heal
12. Detoxify your body
13. Aid in digestion
14. Cleanse your colon
15. Assist in weight loss by reducing and stabilizing your BMI
When one of my co-workers saw me walk into the office with an armful of Aloe Vera juice bottles, she got really scared for me. It’s a common misconception that drinking Aloe juice will sent you running straight to the bathroom. According to Aloe Life’s safety precautions, Aloe Vera balances the bowels when consumed regularly. What this means is that if you are constipated it will help you eliminate, and if you are experiencing diarrhea it will help to stop it. The effect it has is related to the portion of the leaf used. A substance called aloin in the skin of the leaf can have a mild laxative effect. Pure Aloe gel, however, is aloin free.
Well, the Aloe Vera juice is chilling in the fridge. I plan on trying each alone and documenting the taste before experimenting with different Aloe and fruit juice mixtures. I will also be making my own Aloe concoctions with fresh gel from the leaf in a blender. I love how simple and delicious this one sounds. I found it on the youtube channel of RawRadientHealth.
Well, thanks for reading! Be sure to check back for my ultimate Aloe Vera juice test!
