Aloe has several health benefits, but its laxative effect can make it less appealing. However, what happens when you limit that side effect without losing the health benefits?
Herbalife’s aloe is decolorized to give you the best of both worlds. Read on to find recipes for our top Herbalife Shakes containing aloe.
Herbal Aloe Concentrate
Herbal Aloe Concentrate contains decolorized aloe that not only soothes the stomach, supports nutrient absorption, and aids intestinal health but also inhibits the laxative effect of aloe.
How to Make
Mix 3 capfuls (½ fl. oz.) of Herbal Aloe Concentrate with 4 fl. oz. of water. To make a quart of drink, add ½ cup of Aloe Concentrate with 1 quart of water and mix. Pour in any beverage of your choice and enjoy. Be sure to refrigerate the concentrate once opened.

For starters, aloe juice is a beverage made from the aloe vera plant. It helps to improve your hydration along with its digestive benefits. The natural aloe plant contains minerals, some proteins, polysaccharides, and most especially, phytonutrients. The latter are health-promoting compounds found in plants.
Apart from nutrients, aloe vera also contains a bitter component called aloin. Aloin is a laxative, so you generally don’t want to ingest it. That said, through a purification process known as decolorization, scientists have been able to remove the aloins from aloe juice. Purification can be achieved using activated charcoal, a substance that is very effective at binding and removing certain compounds, including aloin. This process forms the basis by which the aloe vera plant is pressed to give a juice with all the key beneficial compounds intact while reducing the laxative components like aloin to negligible levels.
Herbalife employs the purification process to make one of their flagship products: Herbal Aloe Concentrate.
While it’s easy to focus on the benefits aloe provides when ingested, the plant is also well known to have many beneficial effects when used externally. One such use is in skincare. Research shows that different aloe vera preparations have the potential to treat skin conditions like acne and improve skin elasticity.
Aloe vera has been shown to retain skin moisture. It can be applied as a complementary treatment for burns, psoriasis, postoperative wounds, and pressure ulcers.
