What is an Aloe Vera drink? 

Aloe vera drink is a clear juice extracted from the pulp of the leaves of the aloe vera plant. Aloe vera drink is basically aloe vera in liquid, concentrated form. It is a drink that strengthens and balances your stomach and the rest of your body.

The Aloe vera plant has been known for millennia for its many healing properties. Among other things, it has been used for burns, wound healing and skin care.

Later, people also discovered how to utilise its many amazing properties for internal use, which is why aloe vera drinks are also available today.

Aloe vera can, among many other things, help to strengthen your immune system, relieve heartburn and acid reflux, restore the acid/base balance in the body, normalise the balance in the stomach, prevent both constipation and loose stomach, reduce bloating, ensure a more stable blood sugar level and cleanse your body of waste products and toxins that accumulate.

If you have problems with bad breath, sore gums, irritated gums, periodontal disease, mouth blisters or sore throat, you can also use your aloe vera drink as a mouthwash. We recommend that you go to Matas, the pharmacy or Helsam for advice and guidance on which Aloe vera drink to choose.

Aloe vera drink is a bit of a universal remedy that works against a wide range of different ailments and disorders. These remedies don't always taste good, but aloe vera drink actually does. The flavour is fresh, slightly tart, and the aroma is fresh and inviting.

This is why you should drink Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is one of the best-known plants in the world. And for good reason. When you drink Aloe Vera, you give your body a lot of nutrients and a shot of vitamins, all of which boost your body's health. The benefits of drinking Aloe Vera are many:

  • Your immune system is significantly strengthened.
  • Helps maintain healthy mucous membranes in your stomach and intestinal system.
  • Prevents constipation and a loose stomach by stabilising natural digestion.
  • Cleanses your body of accumulated toxins and waste.
  • Reduces inflammation in your body.
  • Keeps your skin healthy, fresh, strong and moisturised.
  • Counteracts bacteria in your mouth.
  • Keeps your blood sugar levels stable.
  • Regulates your body's cholesterol balance

Strengthen your immune system

When you drink Aloe Vera, you strengthen your immune system. You do this because Aloe Vera is an adaptogenic plant. 'Adaptogenic' means to normalise or adapt. Therefore, Aloe Vera helps your body to adapt to the conditions it is exposed to. And it enables it to adapt to external changes, so you can resist illness more easily.

It helps to balance your body's system so that you are resistant to the mental, physical and chemical stresses you are exposed to every day. Aloe Vera stimulates your immune system's white blood cells - making you resistant to attacks from viruses and bacteria in the body.

Maintain a healthy gut

By consuming an Aloe Vera drink, you help your stomach to calm down. Aloe vera is a basic plant, and as we consume many acidic foods such as bread, coffee, meat and sugar, we need balance in our stomachs. An Aloe Vera drink can help to create that balance. The gel regulates and stabilises the pH value, balancing the acid-base balance.

Prevent constipation and diarrhea 

If, like many other people, you suffer from digestive problems, there's another reason to drink Aloe Vera gel. You may have problems in the form of hard, lumpy stools or diarrhea. Neither of these is a sign of a healthy stomach, which is one of the cornerstones of good health.

The plant drink cleanses your digestive tract and relieves discomfort, helping your digestive system to stabilise. This balances the intestinal flora, allowing you to have normal, smooth bowel movements. It also counteracts problems with heartburn and acid reflux, both of which are very uncomfortable and troublesome.

Give your body a much needed detox

It's healthy for your body to get a serious cleansing from the toxic substances that sit around and cause you discomfort. Over time, waste builds up in your body, and that doesn't do your health any favours. Aloe Vera gel drink, thanks to its gel-like consistency, is a food that has easy access to your body's intestinal tract. It moves fluidly and easily through your intestinal tract, picking up toxins and waste products along the way and cleansing your body thoroughly. But the whole body's cleansing system is stimulated, including the intestinal tract as well as the kidneys, lungs and bile ducts.

The cleansing process leaves your body feeling fresh and you can almost feel the dirty substances in your body being removed. A detox with Aloe Vera gives your body a proper head cleanse.

Reduce innflammation in the body

A state of inflammation is a way for your body to tell you that it is injured or infected. It typically causes heat, pain, redness and swelling and can occur in the skin as well as muscles and joints.

An Aloe Vera gel drink counteracts irritations and inflammations by fighting bacteria and viruses before they set in as inflammation. Therefore, you may also experience improved flexibility and greater functional ability if you suffer from stiff joints.

Improve the health of your skin

The skin is the largest organ of the body and reveals a lot about your overall health. Aloe vera increases the elasticity of your skin and moisturises it. This is an important factor in avoiding fine lines and wrinkles. Dry skin is the worst enemy of wrinkles. Aloe Vera has a soothing and cooling effect on the skin, which is why it works well against all kinds of wounds, abrasions, insect bites, eczema and psoriasis.

Aloe Vera drink is therefore also a very effective aloe vera remedy for those suffering from acne breakouts and pimples. The many inflammatory conditions that cause acne in the skin are relieved by the plant's nourishing properties from within. Aloe Vera's anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties work well against inflamed skin boils, and the drinking gel even helps the acne sores to heal faster.

Australian Bodycare does not have an Aloe Vera drink in its sortiment, but you can go to the pharmacy or Boots for advice and guidance on choosing the Aloe Vera drink that is best for you.

Improve mouth health & hygiene

Your mouth harbours a lot of bacteria. In fact, over 700 different kinds. Your mouth is warm, moist and often has a lot of food debris - so bacteria thrive in that environment. The health of your mouth has an impact on your overall health, which is why it's important to maintain good oral hygiene.

Aloe Vera drink fights bacteria - even in your mouth. It is therefore a good defence against the harmful bacteria that can develop in the mouth, which can cause gum irritation, among other things. An Aloe Vera drinking gel cares for and soothes the tissues of the mouth.

Keep your blood sugar levels stable 

Many people suffer from high or unstable blood sugar levels. And their health suffers as a result. But why is a stable blood sugar level important for your health? It's because your brain and nerves don't function optimally if your blood sugar levels are unstable. In other words, your blood sugar provides nerve and brain cells with the energy that fuels them - and this is important for your well-being.

Several studies have shown that Aloe Vera drink can stabilise and maintain normal blood sugar levels, so that you always have the right amount of energy. This is also particularly important for people who are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Regulate your body's cholesterol 

Your body cannot function without cholesterol - it is a fat that is essential for life. However, your body cannot tolerate high cholesterol levels either. If you have too much cholesterol in your blood, you are also at risk of cardiovascular disease.

Drinking Aloe Vera is an effective way of lowering your cholesterol levels and reducing your risk of heart disease. At the same time, the gel drink has a positive effect on the body's blood oxygenation and general circulation. 

Aloe vera drink - what's so healthy about it?

Aloe vera drink is a concentrated food supplement that contains a high level of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants. It also has a cleansing effect, strengthens the immune system and much more.

All you need to do is drink a couple of tablespoons a day and you've covered your daily requirements. You can drink it straight, but you can also mix it into your smoothie or juice if you prefer.

You can get aloe vera drink with a natural flavour or with a light fruit flavour, such as apple flavour. There are many different aloe vera drinks on the market.

It is therefore a good idea to do some research and study the labelling before choosing one. Some aloe vera drinks contain a fairly large amount of sugar and flavourings, as well as a fair amount of ordinary tap water. We recommend that you go to your local health food shop, Matas or pharmacy for advice and guidance. Australian Bodycare does not have Aloe Vera drink in its range.

However, if you find an aloe vera drink that is the pure product, you will get an absolutely healthy drink that is also calorie-free.

Although drinking aloe vera is healthy, you should of course still eat a healthy and varied diet.

Aloe vera drink is purely a dietary supplement and a good alternative to other, more sugary drinks. If you use aloe vera as a supplement to your regular healthy diet, it is certainly healthy to consume the drink. It is a harmless product, but excessive use can cause diarrhoea, among other things, so always follow the instructions on the bottle.

How do you make an Aloe Vera drink?

Aloe vera drink is a clear juice with a fresh flavour and a delightful fragrance. The drink is extracted from the pulp and clear gel in the centre of the grey-green leaves of the aloe vera plant.

Once the aloe vera plants are harvested, the leaves are washed and the leaf gel is squeezed out. The gel is then microfiltered and highly pasteurised to kill any microorganisms, and finally the whole thing is purified and filtered.

However, the finished aloe vera drink may still contain small pieces of pulp.

You can make your own aloe vera drink if you have enough aloe vera plants at home. It is a time-consuming process and requires quite a lot of plants if you want to have enough aloe vera juice for daily consumption.

Most people therefore opt for the easier option and buy a ready-made product. Fortunately, you can easily find manufacturers who make the pure product, where the aloe vera drink contains nothing but aloe vera.

Aloe Vera drink gives you energy! 

With an Aloe Vera drinking gel, you can give your body a serious energy boost. The drink contains a range of vitamins such as vitamins A, C and E, many different B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B6, B12) and important minerals, including more than 20 different types, including zinc, iron, magnesium and calcium. So the drinking gel is packed with vitamins, all of which help to boost your health.

Aloe vera drink is also high in amino acids. In total, there are 22 amino acids that your body needs - all 22. But eight of them are particularly important for your body. In this drink, you get all eight of the most crucial amino acids. In addition, you also fill your body with important fatty acids when you drink Aloe Vera. These include HCL cholesterol, B-sitosterol and campesterol, all of which are important factors in reducing the levels of fats in your blood, as well as reducing the risk of allergies and counteracting digestive problems.

What does the Aloe Vera drink taste like - and how do you drink it?

Aloe Vera drink is a 100% natural product. And it is therefore not a given that it tastes good. But in fact, the drinking gel has a subtle, refreshing and slightly bitter flavour, while the fragrance is delicate and mild.

You can drink it straight or mix it into a juice or smoothie, there are many delicious recipes available online. If you don't like the natural taste of Aloe Vera, you can also get it in different flavours such as apple or peach, which give the gel a sweet, fruity taste.

Drink the Aloe Vera gel on a tablespoon 2-3 times a day, about 15 minutes before your main meal. Or mix it into a smoothie or juice. Stick to the recommendations, as too much Aloe Vera drink can cause side effects such as increased bowel movements. Always read the instructions on the product as usage and recommendations may vary from product to product.

Aloe Vera drink and weightloss

If, like many people, you want to lose those famous extra five kilos, Aloe Vera drink is a great way to help. However, it does not replace healthy eating and exercise, but should instead be seen as a boost to your weight loss. Weight loss is therefore a bonus in your efforts to improve your quality of life and stay healthy.

Weight loss associated with drinking Aloe Vera is linked to the gel's unique ability to balance your digestive system and cleanse your body of toxins and waste products. When you get rid of them, you will instinctively lose some of your body weight. That's why Aloe Vera drink can help you to fit into those trousers that you haven't been able to button for years. It's a great boost to your self-confidence.

Where can you buy Aloe vera drinks?

If you want to give your body a vitamin boost with Aloe Vera drink, there are plenty of opportunities to buy this unique elixir. The local pharmacy or other health food stores usually have Aloe Vera drink on their shelves. There are also several options for buying Aloe Vera drinking gel from the internet - several online webshops sell Aloe Vera drink.

We recommend that you contact the retailer directly for advice and guidance on which Aloe Vera gel drink product to choose.
