Relieve Constipation With Aloe Vera
by Rudy Silva
Aloe is an astringent, acts to tighten muscles, and has purgative and laxative action -
dispels fecal matter that has collected in your colon. There are many aloe vera
products to choose from. For best results, choose an aloe that is close to that of
fresh organic aloe whole leaf.

Using Aloe Vera Gel to Relieve Constipation

Take two tablespoons of pure aloe vera gel mixed with apple juice. You can use
other types of juices that fit your taste.

If you use aloe juice drink, mix 1/3 of aloe juice with 2/3 of a juice you like just
before bedtime or just on awakening.

Or, if you can handle the taste of the juice, drink a glass of Aloe Vera juice as soon as
you wake up and one just before bedtime. This will promote a bowel movement
when you wake up.

Relieve Constipation with Aloe Vera Capsules

Aloe Vera can also be taken in capsules. Because aloe can have a strong griping
action, it is best to take this herb with a calmative herb such as turmeric. Aloe can
also be mixed with powdered fennel seeds. But, you can take aloe as described
above and see how you react to it. I know many people who take it without turmeric
and they don't have any side effects

The best aloe vera is, of course, fresh aloe gel from a leaf. Look for an aloe that has
been hand and not machine pressed. When aloe has been machine pressed, it can be
contaminated with the yellow sap that is contained in the outer skin of the aloe leaf.

This yellow sap has strong laxative and irritating action in the gastrointestinal tract. A
good aloe should not have more than 10 parts per million of yellow sap.

Aloe has been shown to lower blood sugar levels. Diabetics may find a need to lower
medication dosages when using aloe for a long time. But monitor this with your
blood tester and your doctor.

In addition, aloe vera has a cleansing action and restores a healthy balance of the
good bacteria in your colon.

Here's how to use Aloe Vera to relieve constipation

Use aloe for 5 days and then rest 2 days. Using aloe on and off like this can help to
reduce allergic reactions from long-term use.

Typical recommendations are:

· Aloe gel - 2 tablespoon each day
· Aloe vera juice - 1 quart each day
· Aloe vera concentrate - 5 g up to 3 times each day

Remember, if you're pregnant do not use aloe vera. It has not been studied for
women during this period.

Drinking peppermint tea when taking aloe vera capsules can relieve mild cases
constipation. You can also mix aloe gel with peppermint tea to form a constipation

Taking aloe vera to relieve constipation can give you good results since aloe vera has
a strong action in the colon.

Menstruating or pregnant women
should not use Aloe Vera, in any
form, to relieve constipation

Aloe Vera is a wonder herb that has
been around for thousands of years.
It has been used for both external
and internal problems - skin rashes,
burns, ulcers, internal bleeding. It also
promotes bowel movements, which
helps to relieve constipation. I have
found that some people are allergic
to Aloe Vera. So if you show a rash
or have any other undesirable
symptoms, don't use it.
