    Aloe Vera

    Aloe Vera is a very popular medicinal plant that has been used for several thousands of years. It is quite an incredible medicinal plant full of nutritional
    benefits. It is best known for treating skin injuries, but also has several other beneficial effects on health. It is a succulent plant and part of the lily family (Liliaceae), the same family that garlic and onions belong to.

    An aloe vera plant may well be pretty being a potted plant and add a bit touch of green to any office or home. However did you know that your favorite potted plant could be used for so much more than simply been a household decoration?

    Different components of the plant are used for different purposes and aloe Vera has both internal and external applications. Below are some health benefits of Aloe Vera.

    It increases  the rate of healing of burns

    Aloe vera is used mainly as a topical medication, rubbed onto the skin instead of devoured.
    It has long been referred to as a treatment for sores, particularly burns, including sunburns.
    A review of some experimental studies made it known that aloe vera could cut back the healing time of burns by around 9 days compared to conventional medication.
    Aloe Vera, when formulated into a properly designed personal care regimen, can treat, exfoliate, restore, reveal and supply constant, impressive nutrition to the human skin. Once you move past the slimey texture of natural aloe vera gel and apply it to your skin, you will notice how soothing and cooling it is. And it’s for this actual reasons that aloe vera has been mentioned as the miracle herb that can be used to treat wounds, minor cuts, dry skin and severe burns. It also acts as an analgesic, acting to assist in relieving pain of wounds.

    Helps to reduce constipation

    Aloe vera has often be used to treat constipation. However now it isnot the gel that does the work but the latex, that provides the benefits.

    The latex is a sticky yellow residue found just under the skin of the leaf. The key compound accountable for this effect is called aloin, or barbaloin, that has well-established laxative effects.
    Poor digestion is associated with symptoms of many diseases. A properly functioning
    digestive tract is one amongst the keys and foundations of health. Aloe vera is known to soothe and cleanse the digestive tract and facilitate improved digestion. The fascinating thing concerning taking aloe vera internally is that, because it is an adaptogen, it helps with either constipation or
    diarrhea, helping to regulate your elimination cycles in whatever way you need.
    Even though aloe vera latex has strong laxative effects, making it helpful to treat constipation. It does not seem to be helpful for other diseases of the digestive tract such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

    Improve skin and slow down aging

    There are some preliminary evidences that topical Aloe vera gel can slow down aging of the skin.
    In one study of 30 women over the age of 45, topical application of the gel was shown to extend collagen production and improve skin elasticity over a 90-day period.
    Another study found that aloe vera reduced erythema (redness of the skin), but was also found to dehydrate skin cells. Because of aloe’s well-known healing properties for the skin, aloe is
    one of the primary compounds used in the cosmetic industry.

    Reduces blood sugar levels in diabetics

    Might Aloe Vera be able to help people with diabetes regulate their blood sugar levels? One study
    conducted in Thailand found that two tablespoons of Aloe Vera juice per day caused blood sugar levels to fall in people with type 2 diabetes, which suggests it’s going to have a future in diabetes treatment. These results were confirmed with a later study from Turkey that used pulp extract. Many animal and human studies in type 2 diabetics have actually found promising results from consuming Aloe Vera extract.
    Aloe Vera has sometimes been used as a natural diabetes remedy. It is said to enhance insulin sensitivity and help improve blood sugar management.

    However, there have been some cases of liver damage reported with long-term ingestion of Aloe vera supplements.
     

    Can serve as an alternative to mouthwash. 

    A study done in 2014 found aloe vera extract to be a secure and effective option to
    chemical-based mouthwashes. The plant’s natural ingredients, which include a healthy dose of vitamin C, can block plaque and also give relief if you have hurt or swelling gums.

    It works as an Adaptogen

    Aloe Vera is a well-known adaptogen (something that enhances the body’s natural ability to adapt to external changes and resist illness). It is thought that Aloe Vera’s power as an adaptogen balances the body’s system, stimulating the defense and adaptive mechanisms of the body. This enables you an increased ability to manage stress (physical, emotional and environmental stress).

    Conclusion

    There are many ways to use the aloe vera plant and the numerous
    gels and extracts that can be made
    from it. Researchers are continuing to discover new ways to put this natural superpower to use. The next time you are looking for an effective remedy or just a new houseplant, consider aloe vera.

    It Intakes Precautions

    This plant is incredibly medicinal, yet there are some cautions against long-term use. Just because a bit is useful doesn’t mean that a lot is more beneficial. This is an incredibly potent plant and should be used with a level of respect for its efficiency. Long-term use
    can lead to loss of electrolytes, especially potassium.

    Tip: Avoid taking aloe internally during pregnancy, menstruation, if you have hemorrhoids or degeneration of the liver and gall bladder.
