How To Add Aloe Vera To Your Juices To Boost Your Digestive Health
Last updated on
Most people don’t want to drink pure aloe vera juice because of the taste, but love all the health benefits it offers. Studies show that aloe vera is very good for the skin, but that’s just scratching the surface—aloe vera is a natural anti-inflammatory, immune booster (contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, E, niacin and folate).
Aloe vera juice is also rich with healthy minerals: chromium, magnesium, manganese, zinc, copper, potassium, iron, sodium, and calcium among others. Good for our dental health, cardiovascular health, and part of an alkaline diet, what’s not to love about aloe vera juice?

In her book “Herbal Medicines” Joanne Barnes recommends that children over age 10 and adults have aloe vera juice three times each day in a dose of between 50 and 200 milligrams. Aloe vera juice can be a laxative when overdose.
Aloe vera juice may interact negatively with medications, both over-the-counter and prescription especially stimulant laxatives, diuretic drugs and sevoflurane (which is used for anesthesia). Anyone on medication for diabetes or heart disease should consult their doctor before drinking aloe vera juice.
Precaution for Pregnancy and Breastfeeding
During pregnancy, you should limit your consumption of aloe vera juice due to its purgative and irritant properties. It should not be consumed while breastfeeding as it can cause severe diarrhea for the baby.
