The leaves of the aloe vera plant are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, and the plants gel contains potent anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.

Aloe Vera comes in many forms: liquid extracts, gels, dry extracts, and juices are all available.

You can supplement your diet with aloe vera juice, which is made from the plant’s gel. The juice has been shown to encourage weight loss, maintain a healthy digestive system, and flush out any toxins in the body. For an everyday boost, drink a mixture of fruit juice, water, and aloe vera juice.

Another way to incorporate aloe vera into your everyday routine is through dietary supplements. Aloe vera supplements combine pure aloe juice with other health boosters like citric acid, vitamin C, and ascorbic acid.
