  • Aloe vera is well known for its medicinal properties for many years.
    Two parts of the aloe vera plant are useful medicinally.
    The leaves of these plants will have a clear gel. This gel is used for the treatment of skin burns and various other skin problems. The gel is available as a liquid or capsule form. They can be taken orally.
    The yellow pulp present just under the outer part of the plant leaf is called Aloe latex. This will have laxative properties, and good for constipation problem. Aloe vera juice and aloe vera water are also there in the market. Aloe juices are mixed with citrus juice and supplied as aloe vera juice. Please select the juice which will not have any added sugars by seeing the ingredients list given on the pack.
    The major health benefits of this juice are told to be:
    1. Aloe latex will have an anthraquinone called aloin. This will help in bringing down constipation.
    2, Aloe creams are well known for treating various skin problems including itchiness and inflammation.
    3. There is a common understanding that aloe is good for sunburn. The gel will have a cooling effect. But there is no confirmed evidence for this.
    4. Aloe gel is good for healing of burns or cuts on the skin.
    5. This juice is good for Heartburn relief. Symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) will come down by drinking this juice.
    6 If we take two tablespoons of aloe vera juice every day for two weeks the blood sugar levels will come down for the people with type 2 diabetes.
    There are some green tea powders available which will have aloe vera also. But I suggest you drink this juice with water only.
    There is no proof that this will promote muscle gain weight loss and liver detoxification.
