We get a few commonly asked questions. This article will address the top three question for you.
Certainly! Aloe Vera comes from a plant, you can think of juices made from it as a veggetable or fruit juice. Just as with any other juice from the plant kingdom, you can drink it with food, or without.
How Much Aloe Vera Juice Do I Drink?
That is up to you and depends on why you are drinking it in the first place. For example, one of the aloe vera juice benefits (see "Top 10 Aloe Vera Juice Benefits") is for a natural boost of energy without all the white sugar and caffiene associated with so-called "energy drinks."
Most people drink two to eight ounces (60 to 240 millilitres) during the day with the average being four ounces (120 millilitres) a day. Generally start with two to three ounces. If after a few days you notice the desired results, that is a great level for you. If not, increase every few days as desired.
Keep in mind this applies only to these aloe vera juice drinks. They are the highest rated drinks for freshness and purity. Indeed, the "Aloe Vera Gel" (bottle pictured above right) is the purest consumable aloe vera in the world. While there are some other brands that are good, the Forever Living brand has been rated above all others for over 30 years. And, of course, there are also brands that are not good. (If you are buying a gallon of aloe vera juice for $5.00 you need to rethink what is more important: Money or top Quality!)
Which Aloe Vera Juice is Best for Me?
There are four juices which apply to this question.
The juice you ultimately choose will depend entirely on the result(s) you want. See the details of each juice. One thing I suggest, is that if you are not sure which juice you want, get the plain "Aloe Vera Gel." Because it is unflavored you then have the open option of mixing it with a glass of your favorite fruit or vegetable juice. I suggest it because these naturally potent aloe vera juices have a kick!
I have been drinking this Aloe Vera Gel for some 30 years now and got used to it in no time. I started to drink it 'straight' a week or so after. Because aloe vera has such a unique flavor, many like to mix it with something else until the taste 'grows' on them.
The potency of this Aloe Vera Gel will be the same whether you drink two ounces straight, or mix two ounces into a glass of vegetable or fruit juice. The important thing is that you are getting all of the benefits either way.
A final thought: If you are getting aloe vera juice for young children, they appear to favor the "Aloe Bits N' Peaches." You can see more details about these drinks as well as availability and price in your country by selecting the "Aloe Vera Juices" and your country.
How Long Does Aloe Vera Juice Keep on the Shelf?
Because these are the freshest consumable aloe vera juices in the world they have a shelf life - under normal conditions - of over three years.
Many people do not like cold drinks. If you prefer to not refridgerate your juice after opening it you have about 30 days of good shelf life.
But this brings up a more important question. When you purchase, say, three bottles and they are still on a kitchen shelf three years later - what was the point in getting them in the first place? The average person will go through two to three bottles in a month (per person).
