The benefits of Aloe Vera

aloe vera benefits

Aloe vera contains many vitamins, minerals and micronutrients, such as vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B9, B12, C, E and PP, as well as iron, calcium, copper, phosphorus, potassium, chromium, magnesium, manganese, selenium, and zinc. It also contains 7 of the 8 essential amino acids.

Aloe is well known for improving the health of the digestive system. Personally I use it for this specific reason . It would act on ulcerations in the stomach and esophagus, as well as in the intestines. It contains certain components (mucopolysaccharides that form this characteristic viscous gel) that are suspected of normalizing the microbiota as well as relieving inflammation. And at the same time reduce intestinal fermentation processes.

Aloe vera leaf is also used widely for its skin benefits. It is healing and is also considered antioxidant and therefore anti-aging (whether on the skin or the body). It acts as an effective antibacterial and antifungal agent. It also strengthens the immune system. Aloe vera has also a natural anti-inflammatory properties.

Preservation of aloe vera leaves

To keep aloe vera leaves well, start by cleaning them with a vegetable brush. Then dry them carefully.

Aloe vera is a plant that lives in a dry environment, so it should not be kept in the refrigerator, there is too moist for it. So don’t put it in water, leave it as it is in a dry, airy place at room temperature (even in summer). Also avoid putting it in the sun, prefer a dark but well-ventilated place.

When you cut it, it’ll heal itself! If you keep it for a very long time it will gradually lose its weight, there will be less and less gel.

Method for making aloe vera juice

To make aloe vera juice, only the gel should be taken from the Leaf. The green skin is toxic and must be peeled with a sharp knife.

The inside of the leaf forms a gel, like when you soak flax seeds in water, but a little more viscous.

I advise you not to use a juice extractor to get the aloe vera juice, it’s very difficult to pass it through the juice extractors. You have to use a good blender, which is much more efficient for what you’re looking for here.

To preserve the benefits and nutrients of the aloe vera juice, add some lemon juice as a natural preservative.

As for juices in general, the ideal is to consume it right away. Nevertheless, with the addition of lemon juice, you can keep it in the refrigerator for 1 Week in a well-sealed bottle.

If you don’t like the taste of aloe vera juice you can add a tablespoon of honey or quality raw agave syrup. But it’s still optional.

You can get an aloe vera gel instead of a juice by removing a maximum of water from the recipe below.
