Tips

  • Aloe Vera juice also contains the same antibacterial benefits that Aloe Vera gel is known to provide.
  • Aloe Vera juice can be taken twice a day for optimal health benefits. You can extract enough gel from your plants to make 2 servings. Just be sure you add the gel to 1 cup (8oz) of citrus juice immediately and refrigerate until you're ready to drink it.
  • Taken daily, Aloe Vera juice can help provide a greater sense of well-being, increased energy and a healthy body weight.
  • Making your own homemade Aloe Vera juice can ensure there are no unhealthy additives or preservatives, especially if you're using an Aloe Barbadensis Miller plant that you've grown yourself.
  • The Aloe Barbadensis Miller plant is the only Aloe Vera plant that contains the proper gel for making Aloe Vera juice.

Warnings

  • Be sure to use the Aloe Vera gel immediately after extracting it from the leaves. It will oxidize after only a few minutes and begin to lose some of its valuable nutrients.
  • It is important to remove all of the yellow layer beneath the rind of the Aloe Vera plant. If this layer is ingested, it can cause stomach discomfort and diarrhea.

Things You'll Need

  • Sharp knife
  • Blender
  • Aloe Barbadensis leaves
  • Any citrus fruit (for example: orange, lemon, etc)
