What is Aloe Vera?

Aloe Vera is a bright green leafy plant with big leaves with white flesh inside the leaf.

The leaf has to be peeled to use the flesh, and then the flesh or gel needs to be extracted.

The extracted flesh is then used for various purposes as its gel is made and used to treat many health issues, skin, hair, and beauty, and also used internally in the form of a juice or a gel.

How do we use Aloe Vera Gel or Juice?

Aloe Vera Gel is nothing but the flesh inside the aloe vera leaf, which is crushed or blended well to get a gel out of it, which is then used internally and externally.

Aloe Vera Juice is the diluted form of the gel, which is mixed or combined with water and then consumed by adding ginger flavor, honey flavor, or lemon flavor, which is said to have a lot of health benefits.

Uses or Benefits

  • It has lots of health benefits for hair, such as applying freshly extracted aloe vera gel on hair, making your hair shiny and smooth, and also preventing the loss of hair.
  • It lowers blood sugar levels and benefits the heart with its regular consumption.
  • Aloe Vera helps treat stomach-related problems such as constipation and helps in proper digestion, keeping the weight in check.
  • Aloe Vera is becoming very popular for treating beauty-related issues such as sunburns. These sunburns lighten if one applies the gel regularly to the affected area.
  • It also keeps your skin fresh and glowing if aloe vera is applied to the face regularly.
  • Aloe vera keeps the skin and body hydrated if the juice is consumed mainly in summer…
  • Consuming the drink occasionally is pleasing, but taking heavy doses of the juice or the gel can cause serious health issues.

Note: Consult a doctor or a physician before consuming it daily, as it has not yet been proven that it has excellent health benefits. Consuming weekly once or twice can be beneficial rather than using it in large quantities…

How to make this juice?

  • Just take a single long leaf and peel the skin of the leaf with a peeler or a knife.
  • Extract the gel out with a spoon.
  • Blend the gel by mixing some water until there are no lumps.
  • Use it by mixing honey or lemon extract or grated ginger, which could even aid in weight loss…
  • Drink on an empty stomach or after meals but not too often.
  • Making an aloe vera juice recipe is simple and easy, but we have to be careful while handling the leaf as the leaf, while peeling, is very slippery and tends to slip from the hands.
  • Make small chunks of the gel after peeling the leaf, which makes the juice blending easier.

Best way to consume aloe vera

  • The best option is to mix the chunks of gel with the drinks, juices, or smoothies while blending, as it is pretty challenging to drink fresh aloe vera juice as it tastes slightly bitter and unique.
  • The other option is to add honey and lemon extract, which makes it consumable, and also, the taste turns sweeter due to honey.
  • Consume it on an empty stomach for best results, but consuming any time of the day, such as after meals, is also a good option.

There is also a video of this particular recipe in this post to help make it practical.

  • Add cubes to make a chilled drink, or add while blending.

NOTE: Always seek medical advice before consuming the drink for any kind of health issues or internal body-related problems, as the information provided here is general and not provided by any medical expert.

How and when should this drink be used to lose weight?

It can be used before meals of the day, mainly breakfast, and not in high doses. Just consume in tablespoons or a very small cup weekly twice or thrice but seek doctors’ advice before using it for weight loss. It gives better results and is also said to aid in losing weight. Also, check out apple cider vinegar to lose weight for more such drinks.

What other benefits does it give?

It improves digestion, helps reduce sugar levels internally, and promotes weight loss.

To talk about external benefits, it is a tremendous and miraculous ingredient to apply to the skin externally, which reduces spots, pigmentation, sunburns, etc.

It has many healing properties if applied externally. The aloe vera gel at home, which I have shared on the blog, works wonders to apply externally.

When to consume the drink, and can we drink it regularly?

It is always better to consume aloe vera juice before breakfast on an empty stomach for better results.

The answer to the second part of the question is to have it just weekly, twice, or thrice, and not daily, as aloe vera in high doses can cause side effects or dangers to the human body.
