Aloe Vera has beneficial effects for diabetics
Here is good news for the fans of aloe vera. The plant, which originates from Africa, has been found to reduce blood sugar levels, which can be helpful for patients suffering from type 2 diabetes.
Diabetes patients could have a reason to take a regular dose of aloe vera, as this succulent plant has been found to keep blood sugar levels in check.
American researchers published this week a review of nine studies exploring the plant’s benefits for type 2 diabetes patients in the “Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine.”
Regularly taking aloe vera stimulates the secretion of insulin, which is particularly useful for people suffering from diabetes. Patients with blood sugar levels of 200mg/dl benefitted the most from the effects of aloe vera, the researchers found.
