Winter is about to go and it’s time to cope up with sweating summer and sunny days. Summer is also a period for growing and consuming Aloe Vera plant and juice more as compared to other seasons. Aloe Vera is an evergreen plant from the species of the genus Aloe which is also known as the happy plant that comes with numerous medicinal and health benefits. An evergreen perennial, it originates from the Arabian Peninsula but grows wild in tropical, semi-tropical, and arid climates around the world.

Moreover, Aloe Vera is an Ayurvedic medicine that is not only used to enhance skin and hair but actually heal some major diseases like breast cancer, blood sugar, heartburn, etc. As per Ayurveda, it’s a medicine and drinking this healthy elixir in juice form provides you with a number of other health benefits. 

Let’s know about some of the major diseases that Aloe Vera juice can heal and prevent and all the surprising benefits it offers. 

Benefits of Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera has the Potential to fight breast cancer 

The research reports published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine studied the therapeutic properties of aloe-emodin, a compound in the plant’s leaves. The authors suggest that the succulent shows potential in slowing the growth of breast cancer. However, more studies are needed to further advance this theory. 

Aloe Vera Works As a Natural Laxative 

A team of Nigerian scientists’ conducted a study on rats and found that gel made from typical aloe vera houseplants was able to relieve constipation. But another study by the National Institutes of Health looked at the consumption of aloe vera whole-leave extract. Those findings revealed tumor growth in the large intestines of laboratory rats. 

Lowering Blood Sugar 

Research suggests that Aloe Vera is capable of lowering your blood sugar level. Ingesting two tablespoons of aloe vera juice per day can cause blood sugar levels to fall  in people with type 2 diabeties. This could mean that aloe vera may have a future in diabetes treatment. These results were confirmed by the research published in Phytotherapy Research that used pulp extract. 

Benefitted Digestive health 

Consuming Aloe Vera juice can benefit your digestive tract and help to soothe and cure stomach ailments, including irritable bowel syndromes (IBS). 

Promotes Oral Health 

Very few people knew that Aloe Vera can actually improve your oral health. While toothpaste and mouthwash are natural options for improving oral hygiene and reducing plaque, Aloe Vera can do wonders. 

Results of a 2017 research report found that people who used Aloe Vera toothpaste showed significant improvements to their oral health. 

The study included 40 adolescents who were divided into two groups. Each group used either Aloe Vera toothpaste or a traditional toothpaste containing triclosan twice daily.
