Aloe Vera Juice offers a wide variety of health benefits and most of us have used it when we have encountered a summertime sunburn, but can aloe Vera juice help you lose weight?
In order to understand Aloe Vera’s weight loss properties, you must first understand the make up of the aloe Vera plant. The juice of the plant is extracted from the leaves and the taste is extremely bitter. Aloe Vera juice contains a wide variety of proteins that the body has trouble digesting and as a result, it is thought that the system must work over-time in order to break the proteins down. The process is supposed to require more energy, excess calories to be burned and fat to be lost.
Manufacturers of Aloe Vera juice state that a person should consume it along with water or Gatorade because of the dehydrating properties found in the juice. Manufacturers of the juice also claim that the juice acts as a detox type of system that cleanses the body of toxins and free radicals.
Now, while there are a wide variety of antioxidants found in Aloe Vera juice which leads researchers to believe that it can be good for weight loss, none of the claims have been substantiated by proof. Another claim of manufacturers of Aloe Vera is that it speeds up the metabolic rate. This too has not been substantiated by proof.
