Health Benefits of Aloe Vera Juice

A few weeks ago I picked up some George's Aloe Vera at Food Liberation, our local health food store. Jennifer, a friend who is also interested in healing her family through diet had mentioned months ago that she was a big fan of Aloe vera, which had helped her kids, but I had never gotten around to trying it. It is funny how we have ideas of what might work and what might not and unless we have a first hand experience with something, it's hard to believe that it might help alleviate a chronic problem. Since we started the aloe my sons red cheeks have been reduced. Which might sound trivial to you, unless you have witnessed his food intolerances first hand. The other day, he even stuck his hand in a pint of vanilla Haagan Daz and his normal complexion remained. Just as aloe vera soothes a sunburn, it also seems to heal a damaged intestine and allergies. So I did some research on the healing properties of Aloe...

An article by Mike Adams called the Aloe Vera Miracle, is a detailed overview of this healing plant. Not only is aloe nutritious, it also has anti inflammatory, anti viral and anti bacterial properties. The article is a little bit of a long infomercial for a friend's dried aloe, but it has a ton of citations with information, including a link to pictures of how to remove the gel from the leaves. I don't think the dried aloe would be as healing as the fresh plant, but I put one tablespoon of the George's Aloe Vera in with 1/4 cup juice for each of my kids the last few days and it seems to be helping them. The George's Aloe is the consistency of water so they don't even notice it, which is nice. I don't have any way to determine if it is a miracle or a placebo. But in our case, it doesn't really matter. When my son was really sick, a doctor said to us, "What is important is the trajectory--is he getting better or worse." And he definitely is better on the Aloe vera--at least for today.

I wanted to know if aloe is safe to drink over a long period of time if I am drinking 2-4 oz per day. Also, is it best to cycle on and off?

So glad to have found your blog. I just recently found out that I am gluten intolerant. I'm also very much into natural healing and holistic nutrition. Thanks for sharing your resources and information about Aloe. I've been researching the benefits and after reading your blog and the resources you cited, I am definitely going to try using it. I think I may also start giving it to my children. Both of my boys have flushed cheeks most of the time and my daughters suffer from eczema. We have a lot of allergies in our family. It's worth a try. Thank you.

I read somewhere that drinking aloe vera for a long time is not good. I only drink aloe vera juice for two weeks as body cleansing.

When you say pure Aloe Vera Juice, do you mean a freshly squeezed Aloe Vera plant or do you mean the processed, bottled variety?

If it is the latter, then you are better off following the instructions on the bottle.

If it is fresh Aloe Vera juice then, yes, there are a number of uses which we will be publishing here very soon, so please be on the look out.

Aloe Vera though bitter, is an acquired taste. Give it some time and I’m sure you will get used to it.

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

Being informed about aloe is a good thing. But you can leave the bitter taste behind. I am a consultant with L'BRI PURE n'NATURAL. All our skin care products have aloe vera as the first ingredient. And we have a good tasting Nutri Aloe drink. Really helps using aloe inside and out. Please visit my website at www.kathystubbs.lbri.com and see how our aloe is harvested. Let me know if you have any questions!
