My Juice Pick Me Up.

I love freshly made juice and use to include them in my weekly food budget, which went way over the top as a result of my weekly juice habit.

With the help of my magic mix food processor I decided to juice my own fresh fruits. I am now able to come up with amazing receipts.

My favourite juice is a combination of carrots, apples and oranges.

I am use my mixer which does not take the fruits whole, so I slice them thinly and feed them into my juice maker in small portions.

Total processing time is 20 mins. I have been making this particular combination for a month and the processing time is getting shorter.

Whole Juice vs Just Juice.

You may say whole juice is better and I agree.
However, I want to drink the juice not make a smoothie.
I love my smoothies as they have a whole lot of benefits. however I feel more refresh after having a juice than I do after drinking a smoothie.j

Aloe Vera Drink

Forever’s iconic yellow and brown bottle has become synonymous with aloe vera, and rightfully so – after all, Forever Aloe Vera Gel contains 96% stabilised aloe! For almost forty years we have been at the cutting edge of aloe production and we believe our patented stabilisation process sets us apart from the rest. In fact, we are so confident in the quality of our aloe that our Forever Business Owners can offer their customers an unconditional sixty day money back guarantee if they aren’t completely satisfied with the products. Here at Forever, we’ve always known that aloe vera is a pretty incredible plant, but a recent report from Expert Market Research has shown that the world’s love for aloe is also growing at a rapid rate. In fact, the global aloe vera market is predicted to reach $728 million by 2021.The same report also named Forever as being one of the top players in the supply of aloe, which comes as no surprise considering Forever produces over 60% of the world’s commercially grown aloe vera – now that’s a lot of aloe!

Not all aloe is created equal 
US news outlet Bloomberg, warned it’s readership that a study it commissioned into aloe products found that reputable retailers were selling products that didn’t contain any aloe at all, despite them listing aloe vera as either the number one or number two ingredient after water. The International Aloe Science Council (IASC) represents the aloe industry and was formed in the 1980s to offer an independent certification programme to ensure both the quantity and quality of aloe vera in consumer products. We are proud to announce that Forever’s Aloe Vera Gel exceeded IASC’s high standards and the majority of Forever’s products have also been awarded with its Seal of Approval.

Why Forever’s aloe?

Once the aloe arrives at our factories it undergoes scrupulous quality control testing – in total, Forever carries out over 1.5 million quality tests per year. That’s equal to one quality test every twenty seconds, twenty four hours a day…phew!
