Recipe of Aloe Vera's Green Zinger for weight loss

The health benefits of Aloe Vera juice have long been known. Drinking two to four ounces a day is all that is required to gain the many benefits of Aloe Vera juice. An expert view on Aloe Vera drink. If you drink it daily, Aloe Vera can aid your digestion, improve your circulation and detoxify your body and cleanse your colon.
One of the most valuable health benefits for today’s society is Aloe Vera's ability to assist weight loss. Aloe Vera works to both reduce and stabilize the body mass index by stimulating the metabolic rate in our liver cells so that we burn more energy.

The energy used for this comes from fat and carbohydrate stores in the body. Drinking Aloe Vera juice every day has been likened to doing multiple workouts throughout the week.

Another reason why Aloe Vera works well as a weight loss supplement, is because it has a high content of collagen protein. When you drink Aloe Vera juice every day, the body has to spend additional energy to assimilate its protein into your system.

This extra expenditure of energy also supports weight loss and muscle development. Aloe Vera reduces the amount of time food stays in your intestine, which means that less energy is absorbed from the food. You can find more information here.

Aloe vera juice contains nineteen amino acids, twenty minerals and twelve vitamins and as such is an excellent, natural nutritional supplement.

The following recipe of Aloe Vera Green Zinger will help you maintain healthy weight:

IngredientsApples - 3 medium (3" dia)
Celery - 4 stalk, large (11"-12" long)
Ginger - 0.25 thumb (1" dia)
Lemon (with rind) - 1/2 fruit (2-1/8" dia)
Orange (peeled) - 1 large (3-1/16" dia)
Spinach - 5 cup
Aloe vera juice -30ml

Method
  1. You don't have to peel the lemon, but make sure you peel the orange. The orange's skin is very bitter and can ruin the flavor. 
  2. Run all ingredients through juicer except for the spinach, then blend the juice with the spinach to finish it off and enjoy.
