Recipe Aloe vera for diabetes

The very first thing that comes to my mind when talking about aloe vera is to repair any scar or help my skin rejuvenate However, this help has been shown beneficial in diabetes too.

As for any other herb , the role of aloe vera in improving the glucose levels is determined from its components.

  • Actually, they are five phytosterols (lophenol, 24-methyl-lophenol, 24-ethyl-lophenol, cycloartanol, and 24-methylene-cycloartanol) with anti-hyperglycemic properties inside the aloe.
NORMAL or DANGEROUS    Type Your Blood sugar Level:    mg/dl

In a study carried out in mice in a Japanese University, the researchers found out that when they administered aloe vera gel phytosterols in mice, their fasting blood sugar levels were decreased together with an improvement in the overall diabetes control. (1)

  • What is more, aloe vera is rich in vitamins and minerals, which diabetics need to face their problem and to boost the immune system.

What do clinical trials say on diabetes aloe vera benefits?

Below I will try to reveal other clinical trials conducted in humans to see the effectiveness of Aloe Vera.

  • In a study conducted in Bangkok, 36 patients were given one tablespoon of 80% Aloe Vera juice twice a day for 42 days. Another 36 patients of the control group received similarly flavored caminative mixture.

As a conclusion, blood sugar levels in the treatment group were significantly decreased to 43 % to the initial values without any adverse reactions (weight gain, appetite changes).

What is more, the triglycerides levels were also reduced by 45 % to the initial values, while cholesterol levels didn't change. (2)

  • In another long-lasting trial, Aloe Vera was effective to lower blood sugar levels in diabetic patients, who were given parboiled Aloe Vera leaves (120 grams twice a day).

Aloe Vera as all other herbs for diabetes, cannot work alone.

A change to dietary strategy and lifestyle habits in the right route, is needed to have more successful results.

I am sure you can totally succeed with a strong willing and “fighting-spirit”. Think positively. This can help to make the right choices and have further success.
