What Is Aloe Vera Juice?

n simple terms, it is the juice made from aloe vera, the plant that grows in tropical climates across the world. It is widely used for its benefits and decorative purposes (where it is grown indoors as a potted plant).

The extract of the plant is used in numerous health and skincare products – some of which include skin lotions, oils, cosmetics, and certain other medicines.

Also called ghritkumari in Hindi (and sothu kathalai in Tamil), the plant, in its various forms, has been widely propagated as a healthful ingredient. Especially the juice of the plant, particularly which we are going to talk about here.

Is Aloe Vera Juice Good For You?

Before we even answer that question, we need to look at what the juice contains. Aloe vera has been found to contain 75 potentially active constituents – these include vitamins, minerals, enzymes, sugar, amino acids, salicylic acids, lignin, and saponins. Briefly put, the vitamins in aloe vera juice include vitamins A, C, and E, folic acid, vitamin B12, and choline. It also contains minerals like calcium, copper, magnesium, manganese, selenium,  sodium, zinc, and potassium.

There is research that speaks loads about the goodness of aloe vera juice. But there is some contradictory evidence too – which also carries equal importance. Some studies have been performed on animals, and similar beneficial results on humans are uncertain. Also, certain studies on animals have shown harmful effects. But worry not, we will cover all of that in this post.

Aloe vera juice has digestive and immune benefits. It helps treat intestinal issues and builds immunity. The plant is good for the heart too – it aids in cholesterol and blood pressure reduction. Other benefits include balancing the body’s pH levels, improving skin health, and treating bad breath. It can even stimulate the uterus and improve menstrual conditions. In fact, aloe vera juice had been mentioned in ayurvedic texts too. As per ayurveda, aloe vera juice can benefit the eyes and help prevent various eye disorders. It also is useful in treating jaundice and bronchitis.

You can consume aloe vera juice along with certain other ingredients as well – this can add up to the benefits.

One of such ingredients is amla. Amla is rich in vitamin C (it contains eight times the amount of the vitamin in one orange) and is a potent antioxidant. Consuming the two can have great benefits on your skin and prevent inflammation.

You can mix aloe juice with honey too – they are low in sugar than most other drinks, and you have the advantage of phytonutrients. So is the case with aloe juice and lemon – it can be incredibly refreshing.

You can take aloe vera juice before going to bed, as this has shown to aid in belly fat reduction.

In some parts, aloe vera juice is also called aloe water. So if you come across someone serving you aloe water, you know what that is.
