Aloe Vera Juice
For 1 person
- 1 tablespoon or 15 g Aloe vera gel
- 1 small piece of ginger root (according to your taste)
- 1 Kiwi (optional)
- 250 ml water
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- Sweetener (optional)
- Cut the Aloe vera into small pieces.
- Mix the water, the kiwi, and the ginger, in a blender or by hand; add 1 teaspoon chia seeds (you can also mix the Aloe vera with the whole if you prefer *).
- Add the lemon juice and the Aloe vera
- If necessary, use some sweetener
* Alternate preparation
It is possible to mix everything at once; but then the result is quite viscous, which some people may not like; or keep the gel cut into pieces, which reduces the final viscosity of the drink but adds pieces to chew.
Recommended daily portion
Preparation and dosage
Powdered dried gel: 100 to 500 mg of powdered gel per day; it could also be in the form of capsules. Mean dose: 300 mg.
Fresh gel: 2 tablespoons (30 ml or 30 g) of fresh gel can be consumed daily, 1 tablespoon in the morning and 1 before bedtime.
Commercial Aloe juice: depending on the percentage of gel it contains, you may increase the dose, for example, up to 45 ml per day when the juice contains 66% of gel.
We recommend consuming Aloe vera as a gel, fresh juice or in powder form only to avoid losing its benefits through cooking processes.
