Health Benefits of Aloe Vera Juice

Aloe vera is very popular for using on the skin, and also because its fresh-smelling scent is great for air fresheners and a range of other uses. However, the consumption of liquid derived from the plant has, so far, been fairly limited – although aloe vera juice has a wide range of health benefits.

Aloe vera juice is very beneficial to the digestive system. It is a natural remedy to heartburn and other digestive problems, including constipation. It appears to promote the healthy functioning of the gut and colon, and reduce the appearance of harmful bacteria which naturally occur in the digestive system.

Aloe vera has many anti-inflammatory qualities. It can help with sore joints and problems with movement – this may be of interest to those who suffer from chronic joint inflammation and pain.

If you suffer from bad breath or tooth decay, then taking regular aloe vera juice may help you overcome this. Aloe vera is anti-bacterial, and should act to prevent a build-up of plaque in your mouth. The vitamins aloe vera contain also prevent tooth decay and diseases such as scurvy. Often, bad breath is caused by an underlying problem with the functioning of the digestive system as a whole – aloe vera’s effects on this crucial part of the body will also help with problems that manifest themselves in the mouth and upper digestive system.

This cleansing effect of the digestive system is particularly valuable if you feel sluggish or run down. Increasing your aloe vera intake will cause regular flushing of the gut – which may cause your energy levels to rise and increase your general feeling of well-being.

Aloe Vera and Vitamins

Aloe vera juice is packed with vitamins, including B vitamins, folic acid, and vitamins A, C and E. These are essential to well-being, a well functioning metabolism, good eyesight and a wide range of other benefits. Aloe vera is one of the few plants of the world that contains vitamin B12, which is crucial to the operation of the brain – this means that aloe vera juice can be a particularly important supplement for vegetarians and vegans, who might otherwise lack this important nutrient.

Aloe vera is a particularly important plant in promoting good skincare as it is rich in amino acids. Drinking aloe vera juice should lead to healthy, glowing skin, and promote the regeneration of the body’s largest organ. Aloe vera juice will also aid the swift healing of bites, grazes and stings.

Used externally, aloe vera can soothe sunburn, as well as help to remove the sting from bites and grazes. It is also commonly used as a facial cleanser.

Aloe vera juice can be found in all good health stores – you may also be able to find aloe vera gel, which has similar health benefits. It is also possible to grow aloe as a pot plant, and break sections of the plant off when you want to use the juice, if you only need  small quantities. You should seek advice before consuming aloe vera juice when pregnant.

Jane Wright once seriously thought about becoming a doctor. Admittedly, it was way back in nursery school but her interest in what makes people tick has never waned. Unfortunately, the medical school dreams never panned out largely due to the fact that she discovered she also has a talent for writing, which was way easier to accomplish. So now she satisfies both traits by researching and writing health and fitness articles for a range of clients around the world.
