ORGANIC ALOE VERA JUICE
This juice is not an Aloe Vera cool drink, it is an Aloe Vera Concentrate. It is important to note that the Gentle Healer Aloe Vera Juice only contains safe levels of Aloin/Latex (the laxative component of Aloe Vera leaf).
We classify our Organic Aloe Vera Juice as fresh as it only has a very small amount or ascorbic and citric acid added to help preserve the juice but contains no preservatives. It must be kept in the fridge once received and the shelf life is +/- a month or two if consistently kept in a fridge at about 4°Celsius.
We only ship our fresh Aloe Vera Juice on a Monday or Tuesday to ensure that the courier transit times are limited. We only ship to major cities as the transit time to outlying areas is too long to ensure that the juice does not go off in our hot climate in South Africa.
Aloe Vera is an incredible medicinal plant full of nutritional benefits.
Aloe Vera is high in vitamins and minerals such as A, C, E, folic acid, chlorine, B1, B2, B3 (niacin), B6. It is one of the few plants that contains vitamin B12. Some of the 20 minerals are calcium, magnesium, zin, chromium, selenium, sodium, iron, potassium, copper and manganese.
Aloe Vera is high in amino and fatty acids which are the building blocks of protein. It contains 18 – 20 amino acids which include the 8 essential ones. This plant has an impressive range of fatty acids including plant sterols, which are important fatty acids – HCL cholesterol (which lowers fats in the blood), campesterol and B-sitosterol which are helpful in reducing allergy symptoms and acid indigestion.
Aloe Vera is a well-known adaptogen which boosts the body’s natural ability to adapt to external changes and resist illness. This balances the body’s system, stimulating the defense and adaptive mechanisms of the body. This increases your ability to cope with stress (physical, emotional and environmental).
