Aloe vera contains over 20 minerals, all of which are essential to the human body. The human body requires 22 amino acids for good health -- eight of which are called "essential" because the body cannot fabricate them. Aloe Vera contains all of these eight essential amino acids, and 11 of the 14 "secondary" amino acids. Several experts recommend drinking aloe vera juice to assure a continuous supply of these ingredients to the body.

It is suggested that one should drink between two to four ounces of aloe vera juice twice daily.
