Aloe vera juices

Almost everyone knows about the numerous health benefits of aloe vera. This succulent of African origin thrives in places like Lanzarote. It’s packed with active ingredients, minerals, and vitamins. Its antiseptic and healing gel soothes burns and eases pain.

However, consuming aloe vera in its natural state can be somewhat bitter, and its gelatinous texture might not be to everyone’s taste. Fortunately, there is now a more palatable way to reap its benefits; by drinking it! – in its pure form, diluted in water, or blended into juices. A variety of aloe vera products are currently on the market, from pure aloe vera drinks to delicious fruit juice blends, many of which are made with organically grown aloe vera.

Add a touch of aloe vera gel to your lemonade, use it in your favourite fruit or vegetable smoothies or drink it diluted in water with your preferred sweetener, like honey, agave nectar, or maple syrup.

The benefits of drinking aloe vera include improved gut health as it has a calming effect, making it helpful for conditions like Crohn’s disease. It also acts as a natural detoxifier and laxative, strengthens the immune system, reduces blood pressure, and helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular complications. It is, however, contraindicated during pregnancy and breastfeeding due to potential effects on the baby.
