What Are the Benefits of Apple & Aloe Vera Juice?

Well-known as a primary natural first aid remedy for burns and cuts, aloe vera is also taken internally and mixed with juices to boost overall health. Combined nutrients found in apple and aloe vera juice help to promote the immune system and prevent disease. Although research indicates ingredients found in both apple and aloe vera help conditions, such as cancer and AIDS, more study and quality control is needed, according to herbalist Andrew Chevallier and Professor Chong Yong Lee of Cornell University.

Vitamin and Mineral Support

One of the combined benefits of apple and aloe vera juice is antioxidant defense. Many antioxidants, such as vitamins A and C, found in apple and aloe vera are crucial for fighting free radicals that create cell havoc and disease in the body. BBC News reports that many of these vitamins and minerals provide powerful antioxidant benefits, and the naturally occurring antioxidants called flavonoids are anti-allergenic, anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral, according to Professor Lee of Cornell University. Apple and aloe vera juice naturally contain vitamins A, B-1, B-2, B-6, B-12, C and E as well as niacin and folic acid. Combined minerals in apple and aloe vera juice are calcium, chromium, copper, iron, manganese, magnesium, potassium, sodium and zinc, according to Dr. Decuypere’s health alternative website and Cosmetics Diary.

Digestive Tract Aid

Taken internally, apple and aloe vera aid in stomach and intestinal well-being. According to Chevallier, aloe vera helps conditions such as duodenal ulcers and irritable bowel syndrome. Cornell University studies showed phytochemical properties such as antioxidants found in apples inhibited the reproduction of colon cancer cells by 29 percent, reports BBC News. Apple and aloe vera juice helps stomach disorders, assists with bowel movement and works to relieve constipation.

Wound and Disease Healing

Antioxidants and other nutrients in apple and aloe vera juice help to heal wounds and fight disease. Flavonoids found naturally in apple and aloe vera provide “antiviral, anti-allergic, antiplatelet, anti-inflammatory, antitumor and antioxidant activities,” according to Dr. Donald R. Buhler and Dr. Cristobal Miranda of Oregon State University’s Linus Pauling Institute. Apple and aloe vera juice stimulates the immune system, provides flavanoid and polyphenol antioxidant protection from disease and helps treat conditions, including cancer, asthma and HIV, according to Chevallier and researcher Lee of Cornell University.
