The Incredible Benefits Of Aloe Vera Juice

Aloe Vera Health Benefits

 

” Let your food be your medicine, and let your medicine be your food”.  I found this quote, I am not sure who it’s by but this quote represents everything I believe in when it comes to Nutrition. It surprises me that so many people still don’t know that food is medicine, it is something that will prevent us from getting sick at it is also something that will help us heal if we are.

Today I wanted to tell you about the benefits of drinking Aloe Vera Juice. Not so long ago, I discovered this Miracle Water Recipe from one of my blogger youtubers Katya. She is a nutrition specialist and a personal trainer as well. One of the ingredients of this recipe was Aloe Vera Juice.
You can check out her video about the miracle water recipe, she made it in two languages English Version and Russian. She swears by this recipe for weight loss, skin rejuvenation, cell regeneration and overall detoxification of the body. I tried this Miracle Water and I have to tell you – It works! Every morning after I drink it I noticed this incredible energy, so now I even started drinking it before my workouts and I can push through my routines, even on days where I haven’t gotten as much sleep as I should of.

Turns out Aloe Vera it self is quite a miracle plant. I would like to outline some of my favorite health benefits I discovered about Aloe:

  • One of the main benefits of aloe is that it enhances the absorption of vital nutrients to the body, meaning you can get more nutrients out of your food, just by drinking Aloe Vera juice prior to every meal, as well as prior to taking vitamins. You don’t need to drink a lot, about 80 grams 3 times a day.
  • Another great benefit of Aloe is that it regulates blood sugar levels and had detoxification properties to the liver. When our liver works properly, our metabolism works fast as well.
  • Since Aloe is full of anti-oxidants, it will boost and enhance your immune system therefore regulating all of the processes in your body.
  • If you are working out on a regular basis, aloe vera juice will help your body and your joints to recover at a much higher speed, because it reduces inflammation.
  • Because aloe vera contains collagen, not only that feeds the cells in your skin and hair, but it is also much harder to digest, and the body uses more energy to digest it, this process causes weight loss.
  • Drinking aloe vera juice is like drinking a vitamin and mineral cocktail, it contains Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, E, Folic Acid and Niacin. Minerals in aloe vera include Calcium, Sodium, Iron, Potassium, Copper, Zinc, Manganese, Magnesium and Chromium.
  • Another benefit of Aloe is that it contains 19 amino acids, and 7 of them are essential amino acids ( not produced by the body ).

 

From all the research that I’ve done, the amount of Aloe Vera should not exceed 2 to 4 oz a day, it is enough to get the benefits of the plant. Do not exceed more than that because It can cause side effects such as nausea and allergic reactions. As with all the vitamins if they are taken in large amounts.
I also found a couple of great videos with more details about this amazing plant.

Here is another small video about Aloe Vera

 

 

I cannot believe I haven’t started drinking this before!

One more thing I wanted to point out, is to always buy Organic Aloe Vera Juice. The difference in the price is about 2 dollars, but the difference in quality is worth it.

 

Let me know if you tried Katia’s Miracle Water Recipe, because I love it!

    My mom’s been drinking aloe vera since the 70s. She also started juicing (a la Norman Walker) and took sugar out of our tea way back then. Mom’s just a big ol’ hippie in a farm mom’s body. :-)

      I need to get Aloe plant as well, it’s so nice to have one at your house :)

  • Evaleen

    About some of the food items you’ve used:
    - Aloe vera juice
    - Acai powder
    - Textured vegetable protein

    I actually have the same question for all… if you found these in a Whole Foods store, please tell me what isles they were in. :-p Cause besides the last looking like it came from the grain bins, I have no idea where to find these items. :-o

    • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

      Sure :) 

      Aloe Vera Juice you can find next to the vitamin section.  Textured protein is sold at the same place where you see Nuts, grains, dried fruits ( where it’s sold by lbs not in a package ).  Acai I don’t get in a powder but in little baggies and it’s just pure acai unsweetened, it’s in a frozen section same place where you will find ice cream, it comes in 6 baggies per box. Make sure you get the unsweetened kind. 

      • Evaleen

        Thanks a lot! :)

        • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

          Anytime! 

  • Sherri

    I know that aloe is good for the skin, can it help with melasma?

    • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

      Hi Sherri,

      I’m not really sure about that, you would have to check with the doctor.

  • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

    Yes one of the side effects of Aloe Vera is good health :) and the other one is energy if used in combination with honey, water and lemon.

    The quote you referred to is from Hippocrates, the original father of medicine (which today’s m.d.’s have completely disregarded everything he discovered even though they take a ‘Hippocratic Oath’ in medicine school. lol. Good article!
