Herbalife Aloe Drinks: Ingredients, Benefits and Recipes

Luigi Gratton, M.D., MPH – Vice President, Training January 23, 2024

Water is vital for digestion and daily life. It helps break down food, aids in the stomach’s digestive process and keeps things moving in your bowel. For many consumers, however, water is simply too plain, hence the popularity of sodas, energy drinks and coffee blends that tend to be high in sugar and calories.

Instead of choosing sugary beverages, there are actually plenty of healthy plant-based ingredients that can be added to plain water to make a refreshing, satifying drink. Aloe vera is a great example.

The Benefits of Aloe Juice

Aloe juice, made from the Aloe vera plant, is a beverage that supports your hydration needs while providing digestive benefits. The natural aloe vera plant contains minerals, some proteins, polysaccharides and other substances called phytonutrients, which are health-promoting compounds found in plants.

In addition to the nutrients found in aloe vera, it also contains a bitter component called aloin. Aloins act as a laxative and should not be ingested. To be safely consumed, scientists developed a purification process known as decolorization, which removes the aloins from the aloe juice.

Believe it or not, charcoal as a substance is very effective at binding and removing aloin. By using decolorization, the pressed juice is passed through an activated charcoal filter to remove laxative components such as aloins to negligible levels while keeping the key compounds aloe vera has to offer.

Today, consumers can reap the benefits of aloe in many forms – juice, concentrate or powdered extract – to be mixed with other drinks like tea or water. Adding it to your beverage of choice can help you stay better hydrated and get the digestive support you need.

Herbalife is a global industry leader in aloe vera quality and purity standards. Our Seed to Feed commitment guarantees a high standard of quality through rigorous processes that remove impurities, ensuring the safety of our finished products, including our bestselling premium-quality aloe vera juice.

A Spotlight on Our Herbal Aloe Concentrate

Made with premium-quality aloe, Herbal Aloe Concentrate is one of our flagship products that support digestive health.

To reap its benefits, you only need to mix three capfuls with a half cup of water. It can also be mixed with other drinks, like tea, and even with a Formula 1 shake to increase your fluid intake.

Here are a few features and benefits of our Herbal Aloe Concentrate:

  • It promotes healthy digestion.
  • It supports nutrient absorption.
  • It supports overall intestinal health.
  • It’s available in multiple flavors, such as mango, grape, mandarin and cranberry.
  • When prepared as instructed on the label, it has zero calories.


Quality Ingredients at Every Stage of the Process

Developing our premium-quality aloe involves several rigorous processes to ensure quality. These include:

  1. Sourcing aloe vera from expert farmers in Mexico. Aloe vera leaves are farmed and cultivated in wonderful growing conditions and then hand-picked to obtain only the best.
  2. The leaves are then washed, sanitized and ground to produce the juice.
  3. The juice is filtered with food-grade activated charcoal to remove aloins.
  4. The juice is again passed through filters to remove any solid material.
  5. Finally, the juice is pH adjusted, filtered again, pasteurized and condensed into a concentrate.

Our specialized scientists, such as Isabel Garcia Tornadu, have dedicated years of research in creating the best products and ingredients Herbalife can offer. She, among others, worked on increasing knowledge of aloe vera. The results of their scientific work have been shared in many international congresses and have granted one of the highest achievements: a patent.

This patent includes a method that leads to a unique aloe juice that has a positive effect on humans without the laxative effects. Having a patented manufacturing process for our Herbal Aloe Concentrate validates our efforts to create innovative and healthy products.
