Aloe Vera Water Recipe

Best known for its external ability to soothe burnt and boo-booed skin, freshly de-skinned Aloe Vera can also be consumed for its wellness benefits. The properties of aloe can help detoxify internal toxins, regulate blood pressure, fight off free radicals, reduce inflammation and strengthen overall immunity. Nevertheless, Aloe Vera isn’t the easiest crop to consume – its gelatinous texture makes it very dis-pleasurable to gulp down, and that is what makes this recipe a true value. By blending the Aloe Vera flesh with water and lemon, the texture loosens, making it a more drinkable consistency.
