Benefits of Plant-Based Water

Plant-based drinks are sprouting up all over the place. You can find them at grocery store or even make your own. Find out why plant-based drinks are quickly and more readily finding their way from grocery shelves to refrigerators around the world.


1. Aloe Vera Juice


Aloe Vera juice is reportedly good for enhancing immune and digestive health. It is known for aiding in weight loss. Additional benefits include, being full of vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids.  However, aloe vera juice, primarily produced from the green outer leaf, was used as a main component in many over-the-counter laxatives until 2002, when the FDA pulled them from drugstore shelves due to insufficient information regarding their safety. Many manufacturers now decolorize aloe vera leaf (a process in which the aloe vera is passed through a charcoal filter), the components that give aloe vera its laxative properties, the good news is that most manufacturers are now removing anthraquinones. We recommend trying ALO light. This version contains less sugar and honey but still taste great! Yummy, healthy and light alternative to juice.
