I recently read up on aloe vera juice as a supplement and was very inspired. I figured, it makes sense that it would be healthy, as it’s a natural super plant, but I never thought to incorporate it into my diet before. Perhaps that’s because I’d always thought of using it to soothe sunburns, rather than consuming it.

After thinking on this for months, I finally bought some. Now, if you want to give this a try, make sure you’re buying aloe vera that is intended for consumption, not for external use. The one I purchased can be found here!

Once I unscrewed the cap, I was a little hesitant, as it was pretty clumpy when I poured it into my herbal tea, rather than being smooth and pouring like an oil. I don’t know why I expected that, but I did. Nevertheless, I decided to add it into my herbal tea, whether it be puerrh, chamomile or lemon ginger. Since it has a thicker consistency, I figured the warmth of the water would break it up. And I was right! I also suggest stirring it into your tea with a fork to really break it down.

Now, before you dive in, I do want to warn that it does change the taste of your tea a bit. It’s definitely not flavorless, but the taste is very mild, so fear not. And I will say that the results are worth the mild taste. Aloe vera gel keeps your whole digestive system running smoothly. It definitely helped with my skin too, as I felt more radiant and glowy and had fewer breakouts than ever. Finally, this wonder is also great for alkalinity. There are numerous other benefits, but these are three great ones that certainly piqued my interest.

If you do give this a shot, let me know what you think of it by posting in the comments below!
