    Aloe vera juice... amazing stuff!!

    Hi folks,

    Thought some of you might like to check out this info on aloe vera juice and the wonderful health benefits it can provide when incorporated into ones' weekly health regime.

    For those who are already familiar with this information, please feel free to share any personal insights, experiences, opinions, hints, or tips you may have.

    For those who are not yet familiar, here is a short articlie outlining some of the key benefits associated with drinking aloe vera juice...

    Health Benefits of Drinking Aloe Vera Juice


    Aloe Vera is packed full of the nutrients your body needs – inside and out – to feel GREAT and look AMAZING.

    Lots of people are already familiar with the many benefits of using Aloe Vera on the skin – for rashes, cuts, bruises, sunburn and so on. But not so many people know about the health benefits of drinking aloe vera juice.

    Firstly, aloe vera juice is completely safe and it’s very versatile. It’s actually called an “adaptogen” because it literally adapts to the body’s needs. Many of the benefits of drinking aloe vera juice stem from the fact that it naturally contains so many different nutrients: vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other trace elements.

    These are all perfectly balanced in a proportion that is ideally suited for the body to utilize effectively for its own healing and repair. So it’s not quite true that aloe vera juice is a miracle cure. It’s more that it contains so much nutrition that’s vital for the body to heal itself…


    Here, in no particular order, is a guide to the top ten health benefits of drinking aloe vera juice:

    1. Detox Aloe vera juice is a great natural aid to detox. With our stressful lives, the pollution around us and the junk foods we eat, we all need to cleanse our systems from time to time. Some people more often than others! Drinking aloe vera juice provides a fantastically rich cocktail of vitamins, minerals and trace elements to help our bodies deal with these stresses and strains everyday.

    2. Healthy Digestion A healthy digestive system makes sure that we absorb as many of the nutrients as possible from the foods we eat. Aloe vera juice has natural detoxifying abilities; and drinking aloe vera juice seems to improve bowel regularity and increases protein absorption. It also helps to decrease the amount of unfriendly bacteria and yeast in our gut. Aloe vera has been shown to help reduce and soothe heartburn and other digestive problems.

    3. Natural Immune Support Aloe vera is full of anti-oxidants – natural immune enhancers which fight free radicals within our body. Free radicals are the unstable compounds produced as a side-effect of our metabolism. They are thought to cause various ailments, as well as contributing to the ageing process. Drinking aloe vera juice regularly gives the body a regular supply of anti-oxidants, which can boost and enhance the immune system.

    4. Reduce Inflammation Aloe vera juice contains 12 substances which can slow down or inhibit inflammation, without any side-effects. Some people say that drinking aloe vera juice helps with their stiff, swollen or painful joints.

    5. Collagen and Elastin Repair for Healthy Skin Drinking aloe vera juice adds a rich supply of raw materials to your diet, which can produce and maintain really healthy skin. The skin replaces itself every 28 days. Using the nutritional building blocks of aloe vera, the skin can use these nutrients daily to help combat the effects of ageing. Aloe vera also helps in soothing minor burns, cuts, scrapes and skin irritations.

    6. Regulate Weight and Energy Levels Drinking aloe vera juice naturally allows the body to cleanse the digestive system. Our diets include many substances which can cause fatigue and exhaustion. Taken regularly, aloe vera juice ensures a greater feeling of well-being, allowing energy levels to increase and helps maintain a healthy body weight.

    7. Daily Dose of Vitamins & Minerals Aloe vera juice contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12 (the aloe vera plant is one of the few plants in the world to contain vitamin B12), C, E, Folic Acid and Niacin. The human body cannot store some of these vitamins, so we need to supplement them regularly through our diet. The minerals found in aloe vera include Calcium, Sodium, Iron, Potassium, Copper, Zinc, Manganese, Magnesium, Chromium and more… Plenty of good nutrition in aloe vera juice!

    8. Amino Acids The human body requires 20 amino acids to build protein; 8 of these amino acids are ‘essential’ which means the body can’t make them itself. Aloe vera contains 19 of these amino acids, and 7 of the essential amino acids. So drinking aloe vera juice tops up your body’s daily supply.

    9. Dental Health Aloe vera is extremely helpful for your mouth and gums. As well as its natural anti-bacterial and anti-microbial actions, it contains vitamins and minerals which promote cell growth and healing. There are some aloe vera toothgels available which contain a high level of pure aloe vera, which may help with bleeding gums and mouth ulcers.

    10. Better than Nutritional Supplements Recent research has shown that adding good foods to our diets, rich in naturally occurring vitamins and minerals, is far better than adding supplements alone. The good news is that Aloe Vera juice is considered a food, rather than a manufactured supplement. So drinking aloe vera juice is probably better than taking supplements alone, because our bodies can absorb all the nutrients in aloe vera more easily, and utilize them more effectively.

    This short video addresses some of the benefits described in the above article...




    ... and here are a couple of videos that show just how easy it is to make the juice yourself at home using locally sourced aloe vera stems/leaves (I "borrow" mine from my next door neighbour's front yard ):

    Hey Scott, good for you!!

    I started out buying bottles from a local organic store too, but found it was quite expenseive.

    ... which is why I decided to start making my own instead.

    It's actually pretty simple to do (see above videos) if you can find a decent source of fresh stems locally.

    I'm actually about to buy some plants of my own so I don't have to keep "swiping" stems from my next door neighbour's front garden all the time. lol (he has about 8 plants so I don't think he'd even notice let alone care).

    Anyway, I guess the good thing about home-made stuff is that you know exactly what's in it and also that it won't contain any preservatives (like most of the store-bought varieties do).

    I've been drinking the juice for about 3 weeks now and I've gotta say I feel pretty good.

    Mind you, I've just recently finished a bowel/colon/kidney cleanse... which no doubt has also contributed to me feeling good.

    That's actually how I come across the aloe-vera-juice-drinking idea, while researching all the ingredients I was going to need for the different cleanses I'm doing.

    Right now I'm in the middle of a parasite cleansing program.

    Then the next stop after that will be a liver cleanse (3-4 of them in succession probably)

    Not much fun, but it should be worth all the effort at the end of the day... month

    Yeah it is great stuff. I used to have a plant and would use it on my son's skin if he ever had a bit too much sun. Never got around to researching how to make the juice.

    Might as well grow your own tonics where you can..

    Thanks for the video's.

    Yeah, the aloe vera plant does grow best in dry/hot climates.

    So for you Sandy, living in northern Canada, growing your own would be a challenge for sure.

    Some store-bought brands are still pretty good though.

    However, you need to be careful that whatever you purchase hasn't been heat treated or processed too heavily (because the processing has a tendancy to deplete useful minerals and vitamins).

    There are some organic brands that are quite good. This one in particular I think would be a decent option based on the product specifications: R PUR Aloe International® 100% Organic Aloe Vera Juice 18x Concentrate
