Aloe Vera Juice Benefits

Aloe vera juice benefits are derived from a plant that commonly grows in many parts of the world in dry climates. The gel like substance inside the plant leaves has been used for many medicinal purposes since ancient times. Some people apply it externally to treat skin conditions and taken internally for a variety of health benefits.

Aloe vera juice is at times used as a treatment for digestive disorders like irritable bowel syndrome, colitis or ulcers. It supposedly helps soothe the digestive tract and stimulate the digestive enzymes. Aloe vera juice has also been known to help asthma sufferers. It is thought that might be due to the plant's anti-inflammatory and immune system stimulating effects. The juice's ability to boost the immune system has also led to its use for prevention of colds, flu and also cancer.

The plant has natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties too; it has been the subject of many research studies for the purpose of learning how it can be used to help human ailments.

Other conditions that might be helped by aloe vera juice benefits include diabetes, hepatitis, hypertension and hyperlipidemia.

Because aloe vera juice acts to reduce inflammation, it may also be useful as an arthritis treatment. It could help prevent kidney stones, increase blood oxygenation, and alkalize the body. The aloe vera is rich in calcium, zinc, magnesium, Vitamin C, amino acids, enzymes, Vitamin A, E, and B12 and important minerals such as germanium. Aloe vera juice acts like an internal cleanser and helps to clear your vessels and thin sticky blood.

It is said to clean stagnant matter from your organs of elimination so your body is able to perform more efficiently and this may also help with constipation, bladder infections, and hemorrhoids.

You can obtain aloe vera juice in the form of bottled mixtures but if you want to receive optimum nutritional benefit, you can make it yourself, fresh, right before you drink it. If you live in an arid climate, you can easily grow aloe plants in your yard. If your climate is not appropriate for it, you can grow the plants indoors as well if you have enough room.

If you can't grow your own plants, the next best thing is to buy a cut leaf at your local grocery store.

You may need to go to a health food store or ethnic grocery to find one but you can typically buy a long thick leaf for around a couple of dollars and take it home to juice yourself.

How to Make Aloe Vera Juice

All you have to do is slice the leaf open and scoop out the gel-like filling. Add it to a blender along with fresh fruit for a smoothie drink.

Another simple recipe is to add a two inch chunk of aloe vera into about eight ounces of orange juice and mix together in a blender. Be cautious not to juice the green part of the leaf, only take the gel internally or you might have to deal with diarrhea as a result.

When you first start drinking it for the fresh aloe vera juice benefits, you should start with a small amount and work your way up to where you can handle about half a leave each day.

Consult your doctor before using it.
