What is aloe juice
Il aloe juice you get from the leaves of the plant and the extraction process is similar to what happens for the gel, since what we find on the market is actually diluted aloe gel and not really juice: after removing the epidermis, the pulp of the leaves is processed to obtain the juice of aloe, a slightly cloudy transparent liquid with an acrid taste.
Aloe juice is rich in vitamins, mineral salts, amino acids, polysaccharides and other substances responsible for the beneficial effects on the body; it is sold in herbal medicine and is normally taken once or twice a day: in the morning on an empty stomach and, possibly, in the evening.
The recommended daily dose is approximately 50/100 milliliters of product per day, but it can vary depending on the brand. After opening, the bottle of aloe juice can be stored in the refrigerator for no more than a month.
Let's make sure the aloe juice we buy does not contain aloin, anthraquinone molecule with a purgative action; aloin is normally removed during the manufacturing process to avoid theirritating effect on the intestinal mucosa.
