What is Aloe Vera?
Aloe Vera is a bright green leafy plant which has got big leaves with white flesh inside of the leaf.
In order to use the flesh, the leaf has to be peeled and then the flesh or gel needs to be extracted.
The extracted flesh is then used for various purposes such as its gel is made and used to treat many issues of health, skin, hair, beauty and also it is used internally in the form of a juice or a gel.
How do we use Aloe Vera Gel or Juice?
Aloe Vera Gel is nothing but the flesh that is inside of the aloe vera leaf which is crushed or blended well to get a gel out of it which is then used both internally or externally.
The Aloe Vera Juice is the diluted form of the gel which is mixed or combined with water and then consumed by adding ginger flavor or honey flavor or lemon flavor which is said to have a lot of health benefits.

How to make aloe vera juice:
- Just take a single long leaf and peel the skin of the leaf with a peeler or a knife.
- Extract the gel out with a spoon.
- Blend the gel by mixing some water until there are no lumps.
- Use it by mixing honey or lemon extract or grated ginger which could even aid for weight loss…
- Drink on empty stomach or after meals but not too often.
- Making of aloe vera juice recipe is pretty simple and easy but we have to be careful while handling the leaf as the leaf while peeling is very slippery and tends to slip from the hands.
- Make small chunks of the gel after peeling the leaf which would make the work of making the juice more easy.
Best way to consume aloe vera:
- The best option is to mix the chunks of gel along with the drinks or juices or smoothies while blending as it is quite difficult to drink fresh aloe vera juice as it tastes slightly bitter and unique.
- The other option is to add honey and lemon extract which makes it consumable and also the taste turns sweeter due to honey.
- Consume it on an empty stomach for best results but can be consumed after meals as well.
