Many remember the almost obligatory plant in the homes of our grandmothers – aloe, “home doctor”. They treat burns, skin inflammation, applied to problem gums were manufactured with different mixtures according to the recipes of traditional medicine to increase hemoglobin, raise immunity (composition: al, honey, Cahors, etc.).

Now aloe Vera is rarely seen in houses, it will not fit in the interiors. And the few who will use grandma's recipes. What, in General, of course – so much has appeared in pharmacies, including aloe Vera juice production in different countries.

If seriously to approach to their health and to incorporate aloe Vera juice in your regime, a single Bush of a house plant and will last for a time. Really, it's not the size of the plant, from which you can squeeze the juice in the right volume. And not all varieties are edible. And for small needs (to be applied to burnt skin to the inflamed gums, to wipe the face of the cut sheet) this house plant might be useful.


How to make homemade juice from plants.

You should be sure that you have edible plant. There are around 300 species of aloe. 11 of them are poisonous and only 4 are used in medicine. Like the aloe that grows in most homes, edible, because I remember in their childhood – he was preparing some homemade cure for anemia, the type of ground aloe leaves (for some reason the cut was kept in the fridge), honey, wine Kagor. Many accepted and survived. But, to be sure, you need to search the Internet – whether it is edible or your plant or not.

Twenty three million thirty one thousand five hundred twenty eight

If you have a large enough edible aloe plant, prepared from a beverage is as follows: first you need to squeeze the juice from the plant. It's always best to use a juicer. You can mince and drain. Grater the least preferred (in the sense of broken hands, but the quality is the same as after a grinder).

Take 3 oz of gel (1 ounce = 28.3 g), i.e., about 90 g, add the same amount of water, 3 tsp salt, bring to a boil, add 1 ounce of natural sugar (not white). The prepared solution can be used in quantities 2-3 tsp 2-3 times a day.


Inside aloe Vera juice can be used in limited quantities and preferably with doctor's prescription.

It is not recommended to take aloe in any form for more than 2 months in a row, as it can greatly affect the kidneys. When taking aloe Vera it is recommended to take a break and repeat the course if necessary.

Notice the excessive influence of aloe Vera on the kidney can be a change of color of urine – it becomes dark pink. When such symptoms or stop taking or reduce the dose, and more dilute the aloe with water.

Contraindications: pregnancy, lactation, uterine bleeding. Aloe not be taken by women during the menstrual cycle (bleeding can significantly worsen). Aloe strengthens Agni (digestive fire), leading to increased secretion of gastric juice (hydrochloric acid), and is not recommended for ulcer.

Doctors of conventional medicine aloe is not recommended for liver and gall bladder, kidney, bladder, cystitis, prostatitis, inflammatory processes in the organs of the digestive tract. Specialists Ayurveda say that almost all of these problems is caused by high Pictou and aloe Vera is just the best, reduces pitt, acting cooling. How to deal with these alleged contradictions – I don't know. In my personal opinion, that is closer to Ayurveda, it works better. At least there is a logical explanation. The official medicine does these prohibitions do not explain.

Aloe is not recommended for children under 12.

Remember that aloe Vera juice is allowed to take in only in diluted form, and the ratio of its quantity with the amount of boiled water used for dilution must not exceed a ratio of 1:1.

Aloe is strictly contraindicated for cancer because it is a strong tonic, a powerful natural "accelerator" of the processes occurring in the body.

Here is a good aloe plant. But it is very ambiguous. Do not believe blindly very active sellers and pushers of products aloe. They almost never talk about contraindications and rests on the fact that “This is all very helpful.” Not all! And suddenly the person has serious problems, and aloe as a strong tonic, can strengthen the process? It is better to apply aloe under average conditions, but do not hope that it will cure someone of a serious illness. So it will be safer! published
