Aloe Vera Juice Benefits

Aloe vera juice benefits health in many ways. Living in Indonesia, I’m lucky that I can buy fresh whole leaf aloe vera to use in fruit smoothies at almost any market or store.

Succulent, deep green leaves, up to 80 cm long and weighing up to 1 kg, are sold by the kilo and wrapped in newspaper to protect the outer skin. However, as 95% of the whole aloe leaf is water, the weight of fresh leaves makes transportation very expensive, especially for export.

Processing the aloe vera gel to reduce the water content makes transportation far more practical and cost-effective, especially for overseas consumers.

Processing the gel to produce aloe vera juice makes a convenient, safe, nutritious drink and the health benefits of aloe vera juice are very similar to those of consuming fresh aloe vera gel.

Whereas you might need to consume up to 500g of fresh aloe vera, you can get the same aloe vera juice benefits from just 2 – 4 oz of top quality aloe juice. If you can’t find whole leaf aloe vera near you, consider adding a commercially prepared aloe vera drink to your smoothies for similar health benefits.

And if you are lucky enough to find fresh whole leaf aloe vera, then try following these 6 east steps to make aloe vera juice at home.
