Aloe Vera - Good For Diabetes?

cholesterol and triglycerides.

The study lasted for 42 days with the treatment group receiving 15 millilitres of Aloe
Vera twice daily. Weekly blood samples were taken for the measurement of fasting
blood glucose levels and bi-weekly for cholesterol and triglyceride analyses. Prior to
the study the patients in both the control and treatment groups showed no variances
in their blood markers. After treatment with Aloe Vera the treatment groups blood
sugar was reduced 43%, and their blood triglycerides were reduced by 44% with no
change in the cholesterol levels. The control group received no Aloe Vera and
exhibited absolutely no changes in their status at all. There were no adverse side
effects reported due to the consumption of the Aloe Vera and there was no
difference in the weight or the appetites in the treatment group.

Another study conducted at the same institution used the treatment of Aloe Vera
given to patients who were not responding to glibenclamide an anti diabetic
medication. This medication is used to lower the blood sugar levels of diabetic
patients. The results achieved by using Aloe Vera were a 48% reduction in blood
sugar levels and a 52% reduction in triglycerides and no change in cholesterol.

Quite clearly it can be seen that Aloe Vera is definitely beneficial to people who have a
history of Diabetes. The sometimes negative press that Aloe Vera gets is due to the
fact that many people try to use it as a home remedy, without the proper knowledge
of how to extract the ingredients for maximum effect. Any would be users of this
miracle plant would be well advised to obtain the high quality products that have been
researched and manufactured by reputable sources. For more about Aloe Vera
