A month ago, I discovered I could drink Aloe Vera juice — surprise!
Thanks to my friend Sara who has been drinking aloe for over 4 years. She has not fallen sick with anything so far and she attributes her good health to aloe juice. In addition to aloe might have stainless steel genes. In any case, she introduced me to Aloe Vera juice for a healthier living. Preventative medicine is the best kind of medicine.
I use the Aloe Vera gels and creams for skin health, and now I drink the juice. Every morning on an empty stomach I mix it with a glass of room temperature water. Also I drink it every night before bed. You can also mix it into fruit juices and blends. For 4 weeks that I have been following this regimen I have a much better digestive system, soothed intestines, less bloating, and an overall well being. This is what led me to write about this experience and share it with more people.
Like I did, you can easily google organic pure aloe juice and health benefits to learn a ton. Please don’t fall for the sugared fancy drinks that contain aloe. For health benefits I recommend the real deal. Don’t drink aloe that is not made for intake. There are two brands that make organic aloe juice for consumption that I can recommend:
Pharm-Aloe: 99.7%, no color, slight taste
Holistic: 100% aloe, no color, no taste
Research published in the “Journal of Environmental Science and Health” notes that aloe vera contains anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties that aid the immune system to cleanse the body of toxins and invading pathogens. Additionally, aloe vera helps to balance the immune system to reduce the effects of seasonal allergies, rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory immune disorders. As in many herbal remedies, truth be told there is other research that is also inconclusive about aloe juice, so you can make your own personal decision after you research it for yourself.
I am a firm believer in checking with your doctor and holistic medicine practitioner before taking supplements, especially if you are on various medications. Last thing you need is a negative interaction with your medication.
Thank you Sara for turning me to a healthier living. Raising my glass of aloe juice and water mix to good health for all of us!
