Best Practices for Daily Aloe Use

Aloe vera has been a principal ingredient in various health and beauty products for centuries, and for good reason. In this extended post, we’re sharing some exciting aloe facts and providing guidelines for daily aloe vera use.

Let’s dive into the aloe vera world and discover how to incorporate it into your personal routine for optimal health!

Understanding Aloe Vera

Before we delve into the advantages and uses of aloe vera, let’s review some essential details about this fascinating plant.

A member of the succulent family, the aloe vera plant contains over 200 active components, including minerals, vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, and, most importantly, polysaccharides. Polysaccharides are molecule chains that help transport nutrients efficiently, making them more bioavailable and improving the body’s overall condition.

Scientific analysis has determined that higher molecular weight polysaccharides provide increased health benefits. This finding led to the creation of, Aloesorb™, Lily of the Desert’s patent-pending extract that contains these health-boosting molecules.

Aloesorbhas been clinically proven to positively affect nutrient absorption, immune health, detoxification, and antioxidant support. And based on the fantastic test results, we opted to infuse it into our entire product line!

Why Using Aloe Vera Makes Sense

Aloe vera offers numerous internal and topical benefits. Let’s take a closer look at some of the reasons why aloe is a smart choice for whole-body wellness!

Immune System Support

Aloe vera supports the immune system by encouraging the production of white blood cells, which act as the body’s first line of defense against foreign contaminants. Another gold standard study conducted on Lily of the Desert’s aloe vera juice with Aloesorb™ found that it helped increase white blood cell counts by ten fold!

Healthy Digestion

Aloe vera aids digestion by improving nutrient absorption rates, which in turn, helps the stomach function more efficiently. The active components in aloe vera also help remove waste from the body and lower toxin levels that may prevent cells from absorbing the nutrients your body needs.

You can support your digestive system naturally with our Aloe Herbal Stomach Formula. This organic stomach-friendly formulation includes aloe and supportive herbs that help balance stomach acid while cultivating a healthy gut microbiome.


Aloe vera supports liver and kidney function by providing the body with 200 vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. These two organs act as a filtration system for the body, and Lily of the Desert’s aloe vera with Aloesorb™ has been clinically proven to help reduce toxic levels of nitrates in the body.

Another critical component of toxin reduction is maintaining adequate hydration. The aloe plant is naturally water-dense, helping the body to flush away impurities.

Skin & Beauty

While most people are familiar with aloe’s traditional claim to fame as being an excellent skincare agent, they might not be aware of the other fantastic self-care uses of our 99% Aloe Vera Gelly. From hair conditioning and nail care to soothing after-wax treatments, the versatility of this topical product is unmatched!

Get Acquainted With Our Juices & Gels

Lily of the Desert offers a range of aloe vera products that can be incorporated into your daily routine for optimal health benefits. If you’ve asked yourself, “What’s the difference between the juice and the gel?” it’s actually pretty simple.

If you look inside an aloe leaf, you’ll find the thick clear gel inside. Our Whole Leaf Juice is made from the entire leaf (including the rind), while our Inner Fillet formula is made exclusively from the gel. And although the textures and tastes are slightly different, they both contain the same 200 biologically active ingredients yielding the same health benefits.

Juice vs. Gel: A Matter of Preference

Aloe Vera Gel, which is thicker than the juice, contains the same active components and offers what some describe as a “soothing effect” on the throat when ingested. Like our juice, it can also be used internally; simply choose the consistency you prefer! Keep in mind that our Aloe Vera Gel differs from our 99% Aloe Vera Gelly product which is for topical use only.
