How to make your own aloe vera juice for medicinal treatments

The properties of aloe vera juice that you can do in your own home provide numerous health benefits, here we are going to share how to do it and how to consume it.

Instructions

  1. It is recommended to gather everything you will need before starting. This is important because fresh aloe vera gel oxidizes very quickly once it comes into contact with the air, which is important to immediately extract and process the gel once the leaf is opened.
  2. Use the utility knife to trim the thorny edges of the blade. And then rinse it off with cold water.
  3. Divide the aloe leaf into two halves. Take out the clear, translucent gel.
  4. Put the aloe vera gel in the blender and add a little citrus juice, such as orange or grapefruit. The juice helps to briefly stabilize the exposure of aloe vera gel, as well as improve the taste. Mix these ingredients for about two minutes.
  5. Pour the aloe vera juice into an airtight container. Refrigerate aloe vera juice at home. It will stay fresh for up to a week, but is the most potent in terms of health benefits, when consumed within two days.
  6. Mix two tablespoons of the aloe vera gel mixture in a glass of water to make a glass of aloe vera juice. You can attenuate or enhance the flavor with some accompanied fruit juice.
