Updated on June 6, 2021

Hi, I'm Sam, I enjoy writing about nutrition and health-related topics, especially alternative and plant-based remedies.

Aloe Vera offers many health benefits, some wellknown and other more controversial. You can consume Aloe Vera in different forms, most prominently; aloe vera capsules, and the now very diverse aloe vera juice options. Aloe Vera drinks are generally available as transparant juices, mostly with little chunks. Aloe Vera juice is excellent for the digestive system. Aloe Vera juice is said to also help with weight loss, because it makes digestion less stressful for the body and heals the digestive system.

Aloe Vera has been used for over 3,000 years and is one of the most popular medical plants known to man. It features heavily in cosmetics and cleaning solutions too. It is being used as an effective treatment for burn victims and can also help fight the signs of aging. I would stress that it can help, but it doesn't work miracles.

There Are Many Aloe Vera Juice Benefits

  • benefiting the healing of wounds
  • improving blood circulation
  • improving overall intestinal health.

Many Aloe Vera drinks are reasonably natural. Many people look for the more pure forms without too much additional sweetener. It has the ability to benefit cell growth and help in the treatment of a whole periphery of different injuries and conditions. It is very commonly used in the prevention and treatment of sun burn as it includes UV blockers and nourishing elements that can help rejuvenate the skin.


Aloe Vera juice weight loss is becoming more and more popular every single day, as the list of claimed benefits is constantly increasing. Aloe Vera not only helps cell growth and the treatment of damaged cells, but it is also full of anti-oxidants that can cleanse the intestinal system and restart the immune system. Many people claim losing weight with aloe vera juice is proven, because of intestinal cleaning abilities, but the medical jury is still out on that one. It is indeed a trend and there is a lot postive sentiment.

The weight loss is said to happen because of a number of factors, including the detoxification of the intestinal system. Aloe Vera juice benefits weight loss effectively because of the ingredients it contains and the effects they produce. Aloe Vera juice benefits are in their abundance, and include:

Laxative Effects of Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera juice has laxative effects that can help keep your metabolism high, resulting in food having less time to store fat in your body, and in turn helping weight loss. Consuming Aloe Vera juice regularly will help to stop constipation also.

Aloe Vera Detoxifying Properties

The Aloe Vera drink works actively to improve the health of the large intestine and detoxifies your intestinal system. Aloe Vera is more viscous and dense than water; it takes longer to pass through your body and absorbs many more toxins. Aloe Vera is not absorbed by the body either, it is rejected. When it is rejected, all of the toxins it has soaked up go with it.

Alkalizing Effects

Aloe Vera juice alkalizes your body. This means that it makes our natural PH balance more alkaline heavy, and in turn reduces the negative effects caused by acids inside us. Diseases only survive in acid heavy environments also, thus the intake of Aloe Vera reduces the chances of our body becoming a breeding ground.

How Aloe Vera Juice Benefits Our Immune System

Aloe Vera juice benefits our body’s development of macrophages; macrophages are an essential tool that our body uses to drive off illnesses. The increased amount of macrophages results in a much more heavily armed immune system, and helps us reduce our chances of contracting illnesses.

Improves Digestive health

This is one of the main pros for Aloe Vera juice weight loss. Many of Aloe Vera’s positive side effects combine to create a strong barrier against Digestive disturbance. The immune system benefits combined with the detoxifying results produce a very welcomed side effect: weight loss!

Lowers Cholesterol

Beta Sitosterol is very much like cholesterol; it is a type of sterol that has the same basic structure. Aloe Vera juice can bring the levels of beta sitosterol in your blood under control, which effectively lowers high cholesterol.

Increases your natural intake of vitamins and minerals

Vitamins and minerals are an essential part to not only health, but life. Our bodies would simply stop working if we removed all of the vitamins and minerals, because of this it’s very important to keep them topped up. Aloe Vera juice contains an abundance of vitamins and minerals, an abundance that is very hard to find anywhere else.

Vitamins work hand in hand with minerals. For example vitamin C helps you intake iron (which is why you should have fresh orange with your fibrouscereal in the morning.) many vitamins work this way, so the more you have in your body, the more you can intake overall, and the healthier you can be. This is one of the key Aloe Vera juice benefits.

The Aloe Vera juice benefits that are claimed are numerous. Even if they aren't all miracles it is still a nice natural product. Weight loss doesn’t occur because of brain tricking chemicals or ‘miracle’ results, it is a side effect of the good health that aloe Vera can help you with. Aloe Vera juice is available from many pharmacists and stores, and can also be bought online. Prices are very low considering the health benefits, and some formulations are completely natural.

Three Juice Recipes with Aloe Vera for a Healthy Summer

Aloe vera juice comes along with a number of great health benefits, but if you do not like the taste of straight aloe vera juice, you might find yourself avoiding drinking it, even if you know that it can benefit your body. If you don’t love the taste of aloe vera juice, here are two juice recipes that will help you get the aloe vera that you need and will also taste great:

Aloe Vera and Strawberry Recipe

Perhaps no other flavor pairs as nicely with aloe vera as strawberry. The strawberry is sweet enough to offset the sometimes bitter flavor of the aloe vera. If you have a juicer, you can simply juice your aloe vera and your strawberry together. How much strawberry you want to use will depend entirely on how sweet you want your juice to be and how much strawberry flavor you prefer. Juicing each component separately allows you to then mix them in the quantities you prefer to give you a flavor that you enjoy.

Alternatively, you could use a blender to blend fresh strawberries and aloe vera juice together. This will give you a thicker juice, but is a better option for those that do not have access to a juicer.

Juice Recipes With Aloe Vera and Mango

Mango is another flavor that goes great with the refreshing taste of aloe vera. This juice will taste just like summer, with sweet, fruit notes, but also plenty of refreshment and hydrating power. Juice equal amounts of mango and aloe vera together or combine mango pieces and aloe vera juice in a blender for, again, a thicker, but easier to make juice that tastes delicious!

Aloe Vera Smoothie with Pineapple

Pineapple and aloe vera are a powerful combination. Not only do they taste great, they boost each other’s’ health benefits. Aloe vera has a huge variety of benefits, including detoxifying the body, helping to reduce inflammation, eliminating pain, reducing high cholesterol, and boosting heart health.

Pineapple has many of those same benefits and because of its sweetness, is the perfect complement to aloe vera. Here is a smoothie recipe you can use to combine these two:

Make Aloe Vera juice

Unless you are going to buy your aloe vera juice from a store, your first step will be to make your juice. This is best done with a juicer. If you do not have a juicer, you can simply remove the aloe vera gel from the interior of the leaves by carefully cutting them open and scooping out the gel into a container.

Prepare your pineapple

Before adding anything to a blender, you will want to cut your pineapple into smaller pieces, so that it will quickly blend and create a smooth, delicious smoothie. You will want an equal amount of aloe vera and pineapple.

Add your ingredients to the blender

Along with your aloe vera and pineapple, you will want to add low fat yogurt and a little bit of milk to your blender. After blending until all ingredients are thoroughly combined, taste your smoothie and see if it requires any sweetener. If it is not sweet enough, you can add more pineapple or your favorite natural sweetener.


Once your smoothie has the perfect combination of flavors, serve it in a glass with an extra slice of pineapple as garnish. This is the perfect refreshing smoothie for a hot summer day.
