Aloe Vera Juice

Overview

Aloe vera juice is derived from the aloe vera plant. While the aloe vera plant is most well known as a topical treatment for burns, cuts and sores, thereís an increasing body of evidence that aloe vera juice, taken internally, can help alleviate a number of intestinal and digestive upsets. It is often taken by those with intestinal gastritis and irritable bowel syndrome.

 

The aloe vera plant is a desert lily that has been used since at least Egyptian times as a medicinal ointment. Aloe is mentioned in the Bible, and there is record of Cleopatra using aloe vera to protect her skin from the sun. As early as the 6th century BC, the Greek physician Dioscorides recommended aloe vera for the treatment of kidney ailments and constipation. For centuries, an aloe vera plant has sat on kitchen windowsills in many homes where it is readily available for emergency first aid treatment and extraction of juice for daily drinking.

 

Aloe vera gel and aloe vera juice continues to be widely used around the world, and there is a growing body of research that supports what has been known since ancient times. The aloe vera plant is the source of medical benefits that include soothing the body both internally and externally.

 

What Aloe Vera Juice Does:

The juice of the aloe vera plant is made up of amino acids, minerals, sugars and other nutrients that are used by the human body for many things. It contributes to the creation of proteins and, the latest research shows, has antioxidant properties that may stimulate the immune system. The balance of ingredients in aloe vera juice gives it both anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, making it effective in treating ailments with symptoms that include irritation and inflammation.

 

Aloe vera juice contains nearly a full complement of B complex vitamins, including  B1, B2, B3, B6, as well as vitamin C, and choline. It also contains the minerals, calcium, chlorine, copper, germanium, iron, magnesium lactate, manganese, potassium, silicon, sodium, and sulfur. The phytochemicals that aloe vera provides organic acids like chrysophanic, salicylic, succinic, and uric, as wells as polysaccharides such as acemannen, enzymes such as glutathione peroxidase, and various resins.

 

Itís speculated that aloe vera juice helps to clean the intestinal tract, and soothes inflammations, offering relief in cases of inflamed bowel such as those seen in irritable bowel syndrome. The various phytochemicals and minerals may provide a boost to the immune system which in turn help relieve symptoms of allergy and asthma due to allergy. It also seems to offer relief to those suffering from rheumatoid arthritis when aloe vera juice is taken internally.

 

Health Benefits of Aloe Vera Juice:

 Reduces inflammation

The anti-inflammatory properties of aloe vera juice are well documented. There is a preliminary body of research into the effectiveness of aloe vera juice in treating peptic ulcers. In a Japanese study, 17 of 18 patients who took aloe vera juice found some relief from their ulcer symptoms.

 

May boost immune system

The amino acids and other proteins and ingredients in aloe vera juice may help boost the immune system and confer protection against many illnesses. In a 1991 study, aloe vera was shown to stimulate the immune systemís response to virus (Hart et al, cited in Davis, Parker et al), and in a 1989 study, treatment with aloe vera was shown to reduce tumor size (Davis, Parker et al).

 

May reduce edema in diabetic patients

A 1988 study carried out by Davis, Leitner et al found that aloe vera juice was effective in reducing edema and speeding wound healing in diabetic patients.

 

 

Possible Side Effects of Aloe Vera Juice

If aloe vera juice is processed improperly, it may contain small amounts of aloe vera latex. If you develop cramps or diarrhea, discontinue the juice and replace it with a new supply from a source that you can trust to process the aloe vera plant properly.

 

Summary

Aloe vera juice and extracts have a long history of evidence to support their effectiveness at treating inflammation, helping to regulate and soothe the digestive system, treating intestinal and digestive ailments and boosting the immune system. The main caution in taking aloe vera internally is a warning to avoid internal preparations that may have been processed improperly.
