In a recent video, we talked about the benefits of drinking aloe juice. Did you watch it?
Aloe vera is well known for its use in health and beauty. You can find many of these benefits on our channel.
The main properties of aloe vera are found inside the leaves, in its gel.
When cutting a piece of the leaf, we can see mucilage, a structure with a concentration of 90% water and 10% fiber.
In this cut, we can also see the plant eliminating a yellow, viscous liquid. The substance of this liquid is toxic, did you know?
So, to enjoy the benefits of aloe vera, you need to be careful with how you extract and how you remove this substance.
See now how to cultivate aloe and use it safely!
Lastly, let's see how to make aloe juice.
To make it at home, cut the leaves from the plant and cut its sides. Next, wash the leaves and remove the yellow part since it irritates the stomach.
Put the gel in a blender, following the proportion of 3.52 ounces of gel to 34 ounces of water.
If you want, add 1 tablespoon of honey and citrus fruit, like lemon or orange, to make it tastier.
Excessive consumption may cause nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea due to the presence of aloin, a substance that irritates the intestine.
Aloe vera juice can't be consumed by pregnant women, the elderly, and people who take medicines to control blood pressure or treat heart issues.
