WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ALOE VERA?
Aloe Vera is predominantly known for its ability to heal wounds and ease sunburn. However, there are a wide range of other benefits involved with the use of aloe vera such as heartburn relief, lowering blood sugar, aid digestion, keep skin hydrated, and a list of other potential functions. Aloe vera can be used in the form of gel, juice, powder, or supplements depending on the reason for use.
HOW DOES ALOE VERA WORK IN THE BODY?
Studies have suggested that aloe vera has the capability to alleviate heart burn by consuming the gel at mealtime. Due to its low toxicity levels, it is considered a safe but effective remedy for heartburn. Another study found that due to aloe vera containing vitamin C, it can be used as a mouthwash to block plaque and relieve swollen or bleeding gums, while almost being as effective as chemically based mouthwashes.
Aloe vera also can lower blood sugar levels and is extremely beneficial to those with type 2 diabetes. There is a strong possibility that due to these findings, aloe vera will be involved in future diabetes treatment due to its high success rate. However, it is recommended that if an individual is already on medication for lowering blood sugar that they should refrain from using aloe vera on top of that as it could reduce the levels dangerously low.
The skin can also benefit from aloe vera due to the high levels of moisture it is able to provide. This is a result of the plant typically thriving in dry climates which means they have to store water. The water dense leaves mixed with the complex carbohydrates found in the plant make it a very effective source of skin care.
HOW MUCH ALOE VERA CAN I TAKE?
It is recommended that if taking in gel format to consume around 25ml daily but can be taken twice if necessary. However, if taking in tablet format it is advised that 1-2 are taken per day at a 6000mg strength.
Despite the low toxicity levels of this plant, it is recommended that infants and pregnant or lactating women avoid use.
