Aloe-vera lemonade

- No Comments -

Aloe vera is a superfood. In the Egyptian culture it is the essence of immortality. It is a magical nutrient. It contains Vitamin A, C and E, sulfur, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, antioxidants, fibers and amino acids. It is an excellent detoxifier; therefore aloe beginners should eat it carefully with step by step dosage raising. This lemonade is an excellent start for those beginners. Aloe also strengthens the immune-system and it has anti-inflammatory effects. I always have aloe plants at home in the summer outside in my garden, and I often hide it in a smoothie.
