Good quality aloe vera juice can be beneficial for digestive problems and inflammatory conditions. However, it doesn't help everyone - try it and see how you feel. As with most other nutritional products, the cheaper ones are not usually very good quality

not necessarily
if you are very sensitive to cold, aloe vera will decrease further your body temperature as it has a cooling effect
The Aloe Vera drink is an Optimum Food in a glass, prove it to yourself.
I have been taking it for 15 years. It has kept me looking younger.
HI Shkha,
I definlaty reccommened my clients take aloe vera. The process of taking aloe vera two weeks before a colon Hydrotherapy treatment really increases the flow of the release in a colonic. Helps not only bloatingness but skin and fuller elimination. My clients swear by it
I hope this helps
Benefits from the use of aloe vera gel and juice include:
1. May help sooth skin injured by burns, irritations, cuts and insect bites.
2. May help moisturize and soften the skin.
3. May help speed the healing of skin wounds, burns and other injuries.
4. May help (when taken internally)with constipation, diarrhoea and other intestinal problems.
5. May speed and improve general healing when taken internally.
6. May relieve itching and swelling of irritated skin.
7. May help kill fungus and bacteria.
8. May improve the effectiveness of sun screen products.
Hi , no. Aloe Vera is an immune supporting herb that may also help with digestive issues and may also be used topically to sooth the skin. Products also differ in their strength and whether they are concentrated or not.Hope this helps. Regards Merriam
I agree with Melanieflower it can be very beneficial but isn't suitable for everyone. About 1 in 1000 people have an aloe vera allergy, it's more common to have an allergic reaction to preservative that's present in most juices to give a decent shelf life. Always do a small skin patch test if you're in any doubt about any new substance before you try it! Also I find Aloe Vera Inner Leaf Gel from a good manufacturer such as Cytoplan is helpful for eczema taken internally and helps soothe skin rashes, abrasions and burns when applied externally. Highly concentrated whole leaf can be useful in unblocking sinuses or other hard to shift congestion. While it might taste bitter this is what helps make it anti-fungal so I don't recommend flavoured ones as they often contain sugar or sweeteners which is counterproductive. Sugar is also an immune suppressant so taking sweetened aloe to boost your immune system really is pointless.
Aloe Vera is sometimes called Nature's first aid because it is a nutrient rich plant which is anti-inflammetry, anti-bacterials and anti-fungal.So it is a good way to top up the body with lots of nutrients and helps self cleansing of digestive system. Be aware that the juice is quite industrial in taste so look out for flavoured versions or cordials. I use Herbalife Aloe Concentrate.
