If you’ve ever had a bad case of sunburn, you probably have a bottle of aloe vera gel in your medicine chest. And if you don’t, you should… because it has an amazing ability to heal wounds, burns and pretty much any other skin ailment under the sun.
But the health benefits of this sunburn soother are more than skin deep. Aloe vera can heal your internal tissues just as effectively as it heals your external tissues. That’s why health nuts in the know take aloe vera orally.
A daily swig of aloe vera juice can do everything from cure bad breath to heal your stomach ulcers. It’s reported to even prevent cancer. And now researchers are adding one more health condition to the long list of ailments relieved by aloe vera…
A recent research analysis published in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that aloe vera can potentially help cure one of the most widespread health epidemics of our time — diabetes.
After examining study after study, researchers determined that aloe vera significantly lowers the fasting blood sugar level of people with prediabetes and diabetes.
It also lowers hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) — an indicator used to gauge your average blood sugar.
Researchers believe aloe vera has the most benefit for people with a fasting blood sugar level that’s less than 200 mg/dL.
Just for a point of reference, a normal fasting blood sugar level is less than 100mg/dL. A blood sugar between 100 and 125 mg/dL is considered prediabetes. And anything higher than 125 mg/dL is considered diagnosable diabetes territory.
So if you have moderate diabetes or prediabetes, a few sips of aloe vera could very well be the silver bullet solution you’ve been looking for. But if you’re going to start using aloe vera for more than just sunburn there are a few things you should know…
First, make sure you only drink aloe vera that was created for internal use. Your best bet is to buy a bottle of aloe vera juice… which shouldn’t be a problem since it’s available at most (if not all) grocery stores and online.
And when you buy your aloe vera juice, read the label. Like a lot of natural health tonics, manufacturers of aloe vera juice sometimes dilute the good stuff down with filler fruit juices that add a lot of sugar and reduce the health benefits. Some aloe vera juices even have sugar added to them. So pay attention to what you buy if you don’t want to get too much of the sweet stuff and totally defeat the purpose.
Your best bet is to buy pure, unfiltered aloe vera juice and drink two to four ounces per day with meals. If you do, you’ll be amazed at how much it helps your body from head to toe, whether you have diabetes or not.
