With an increasing change in lifestyle, especially in cities, a large number of diseases (commonly termed as ‘lifestyle diseases’) have come into being. These are mostly a result of the kind of work we do, or the routine we follow. Of these, diabetes is the most common.
Diabetes is caused due to an uncontrolled increase in the level of blood sugar. Referred to as ‘sugar’ in layman’s terms, diabetes may sound like a normal sugar level fluctuation but it can lead to severe body damage, if not controlled or detected in time.
Although medication for diabetes is easily available, it is best if it can be brought to control naturally with modified eating habits. Aloe Vera has turned out to be a promising plant when it comes to controlling the blood sugar levels naturally. Along with other health benefits like improved immunity and glowing skin, aloe vera has proved to be extremely helpful for diabetic patients in the following ways:
-Aloe Vera juice or gel effectively brings down the blood glucose level naturally; in fact you can achieve better fasting blood sugar levels and in less time than other medications or juices
-Aloe vera is also effective in reducing the body fat and weight
-Studies have shown that the side effects of aloe vera gel consumption are tolerable and minimal
-Aloe vera consumption is suitable for all types of diabetes patients. It is known that patients detected with an early stage of diabetes tend to ignore their medications and thus worsen their disease. Aloe vera juice can play an effective role in such cases.
Therefore, aloe vera can be very helpful for patients who have been fighting with diabetes or for those who are likely to catch the disease later, because it runs in the family.
While the plant has proved to be very helpful, it is always recommended to check with your doctor before consuming aloe vera juice or gel to keep diabetes away. The dosage is also best recommended by your doctor suiting your body requirement and the medications taken along with it.
