Aloe Vera has ben­e­fi­cial ef­fects for di­a­bet­ics

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle - Relaxnews

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.
