Aloe Vera is full of anti-oxidants which are natural immune enhancers that help to deal with free radicals within the body. Free radicals are the unstable compounds which are bad for the health and contributes to the ageing process. Drinking Aloe Vera juice regularly gives the body a regular supply of anti-oxidants, which can boost and enhance the immune system.

2. Regulates Weight and Energy Level

Drinking Aloe Vera juice naturally allows the body to cleanse the digestive system. There are many food substances which can cause fatigue and exhaustion which you can solve by taking Aloe Vera juice. When consumed regularly, Aloe Vera juice also allows energy levels to increase and helps in maintaining a healthy body weight.

3. Cures Gum Diseases

Aloe Vera is extremely helpful for your mouth and gums due to its natural anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties. At the same time it contains vitamins and minerals which promote cell growth and healing of bleeding gums and mouth ulcers. When suffering from a gum disease, just sprinkle some Aloe Vera powder on your toothbrush before brushing and within few minutes you will feel much better.

  1. This is great information for me, how aloe helps restore the body. Thank you. Tomorrow I will go to GNC, and buy the juice, and gel. Thank you again.


  2. Hey, I don’t think they were talking about the processed form of aloe vera. it also has a half life of 15mins. It needs to be directly from the plant leaves inside. I suggest you buy a plant and use it from the leaves, don’t settle for less then that. Apply as much as you need and be generous. You may put tape over the area you use it for so it doesn’t rub off. I am not a doctor but i have been using it for 3 days or so for my cuts, scratches, scars from acne and burns. I have seen results I am trying to apply it at least 3 times to 5 times a day. My sisters wedding is coming up sat, I though my hands would be all scratched up but surprisingly I don’t think they will be. Aloe is very awesome. You will see results depending on how persistent and generous you are. Bless you guys try it out it works.


  3. Wow datz awesome. My mom bought an aloevera plant in our home a year or so before,its just kept there from then,nobody uses it 4 anythng,now that I know the benefits,got to use it effectively

  4. love your information and I am going to try some of remedies right away

  5. Fascinated to read all this… been interested in this plant since I had sunstroke and applied some Aloe Vera Creme and got instant relief.
    Later I researched it for a book on Depression I was writing and found more good things.
    Then I was approached by a company who seemed to be offering me a job.. but it turned out they are the World’s largest monopoly on Aloe products and were a pyramid scheme I didn’t like. (£10 for a tube of toothpaste – are you kidding???)
    Anyway, by coincidence I spotted an Aloe Vera plant in the Supermarket, so bought it to take home – during the Summer the little 6″ plant grew into a substantial cactus-like plant many times its original size. It also put out shoots, which I re-potted easily and they too took hold and grew.
    I was happy that I saved money by growing my own (in the UK), though it doesn’t like frost or cold, so it needs to come indoors and go on the window ledge during the colder months. It is currently loving our hot Summer.
    Then I learned there is a commercial prepration for Diverticulits and IBS and other stomach disorders – what it it? Aloe Vera basically.
    For my book on Depression I discovered that depression is linked to at least 11 vitamin deficiencies – and your list (above) seems to have it all covered – with Aloe Vera. You wouldn’t believe how important some of these are for our health and most of us don’t get nearly enough of these vitamins and minerals.
    Of course, my Mum is standing looking over my shoulder and saying “mehhh, how do you know that is true?”. Well Mum, I am going to check out independent sources in other books, websites and Herbals and see if it seems to be correct.
    To use it, I cut off a nice fat leaf, trim off the outer green skin (which is POWERFULLY laxative and bad for the stomach disorders listed above) and what is left is a remarkable transparent Gel.
    I liquidise it in smoothies and drink the stuff. There are videos on youtube explaining this and more. The plant just seals the wound and carries on.
    Now that I have read your article I am going to invesigate and probably take more of this stuff, it does indeed seem to be a wonderful healing herb and marvellous source of vitamins, including manganese which is probably how it helps diabetes because we need that to make insulin.
    On the Sales Pitch Course for the Aloe Vera Company they told us the founder was clever because this plant has no parasites or diseases, but this is not the case. Mine got some kind of disease. Possibly because I was not keeping it in the right soil. Next one I pot up I will use more sand. Anyway, again, I cut off the bad bits and it soldiered on quite the thing.
    It is easy to grow, with very little care needed, except avoid getting it too wet or cold.
    It grows quite prolifically, so you can soon have plenty to keep you going.
    Money might not grow on trees, but this plant could save you quite a bit of money and be a brilliant tonic both internally and externally.

    • But that is all good but do remember for women with month period it will stop and when you do stop takes about two to three months to return monthly

  9. Cutting the aloe plant to get the clear aloe gel is excellent and soo helpful when you need it. But it only lasts for few hours once its been cut.
    The forever living products have been stabilised and compressed and last for months in the package. I have a plant too and it’s lovely to use fresh when I need to.
    Really good for weight management too.
