The Awesome Benefits of Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is a succulent with a long medicinal history. Yes, its gel is great for healing a sunburn and other skin irritations, but did you know the long list of benefits from drinking aloe vera juice?
Drinking Aloe to Lower Blood Sugar
Blood sugar or blood glucose is required for cellular energy and fuels every body function for both kids and adults. For those seeking to lower their blood sugar, 2 tablespoons of aloe vera juice per day has been shown to do the trick in a Phytomedicine study*. While it needs to be studied further, this is very promising news for antidiabetic ressearchers.
As always, anyone already taking glucose-lowering medication would want to discuss with their doctor prior to adding in aloe vera juice for this purpose.
Using Aloe for Heartburn Relief
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a digestive disorder that often results in heartburn.
Drinking 1 to 3 ounces of aloe gel at mealtime could reduce the severity of GERD and may ease other digestion-related problems. Aloe’s low toxicity makes it a safe and gentle remedy for heartburn.
Drinking aloe vera juice could help improve blood circulation in the body. Aloe vera is known to decrease total fat levels in patients with high cholesterol. This further helps in reducing fatty deposits and blood clots in the arteries of the heart.
Support for Mouth & Teeth Health
Swishing aloe vera juice in your mouth instead of chemical-based mouth wash is safe and effective for your gums and mouth. Aloe provides natural anti-microbial and anti-bacterial actions and also contains several vitamins which promote cell healing and growth. In particular, it has a healthy dose of vitamin C which can block plaque and provide relief for mouth ulcers and bleeding gums.
