Drinkable Aloe is a convenient way to enjoy the many benefits of Aloe Vera. It naturally contains vitamins, is delicious tasting, and soothing beverage that coat your digestive system. But how much Aloe Vera juice to drink daily really depends on what type of drinkable Aloe product is being used. You will want to make sure you are taking in enough to experience the full benefits of this incredible superfood!
Premium Aloe Vera supplements are typically made from the inner gel, a clear, thin, gelatinous substance scooped out from the center of the Aloe leaf. The inner Aloe gel is different from the whole leaf in terms of consumption, as the pure gel is the part of the plant that is completely safe and edible. It is nearly devoid of aloin, the anthraquinone glycoside, which has been the source of much attention in studies. Too much aloin from any source can cause diarrhea, bowel discomfort, and dehydration.
Read the label - you should only purchase pure Aloe Vera beverages that are made from the gel and do not contain potentially dangerous aloin.
It is important to note that pure Aloe Vera is completely safe to consume in any amount and everyday, so long as you avoid the aloin found in the skin of the whole leaf. In other words, it is very difficult to drink too much of any Aloe product that is properly prepared and processed.
That being said, the recommended daily dosage will depend on what type of Aloe product you are using:
Aloe Vera extracts or juices are processed from the pure inner gel to concentrate the beneficial compounds and create a drinkable liquid that mixes easily into other beverages. Because of their concentration, the rule of thumb for Aloe extracts is usually to take 2 oz. twice daily (4 oz. per day total).
Recommended Daily Dose: 4 oz.
Tip: Aloe extracts go great with other beverages such as coconut water, fruit juices, or even soft drinks.
Aloe Vera Water is essentially pure inner aloe gel that is processed and diluted with water to make a delicious and healthy beverage (may or may not contain pulp). There is no limit to how much Aloe water one should drink, but to experience the full benefits of Aloe, at least one full bottle (16 oz. per day) should be consumed. These products are often made using aloe powder and are not typically classified as a dietary supplement. Our top pick is AloeVita(R).
Recommended Daily Dose: 16 oz.
Aloe Vera supplements are processed and concentrated to pack all the power of Aloe Vera into a capsule or powder. Concentrations can vary wildly depending upon the quality of Aloe plants used and production methods involved. Read the label on your Aloe supplement for specific instructions, but as a general rule of thumb 2 capsules (600 mg) per day should be taken and it’s recommended you look for certifications by the product seller to assure its quality Aloe. Aloprin(R) by AloeCure(R) is one if the leading aloe powders in the world due to their organic farming and rigid nutrient testing requirements.
Recommended Daily Dose: 600 mg (~2 capsules)
If you have your own plants, you may choose to consume raw Aloe that you harvest yourself but we don’t recommend that because consuming any part of the outer leaf can cause undesirable side effects when not prepared correctly. Additionally, of the 400 species of aloe, only one aloe plant is known for its wellness properties, the Aloe Barbadensis Miller.
Recommended Daily Dose: Raw Aloe Is Not Recommended For Consumption.
Aloe vera juices and waters are widely available in most supermarkets, grocery stores, health food stores, and online. As mentioned above, before purchasing,read the label! Make sure the beverage is made from just pure Aloe vera gel (not the leaf and rind, too). They should also not have artificial flavors and sugar.
Aloe Vera drinks can be delicious and refreshing while also a healthy food choice. But too much of anything is not good. So, aloe vera products can surely be consumed daily but in the right amount. It should not be mixed with any drink or food without understanding its impact on your health.
