Aloe vera is a powerful plant.
Aloe is probably best known for its skin healing properties.
Most people know that aloe vera gel can soothe a burn. It can do more than that.
For instance, it can help reduce insulin resistance. The research published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine showed that people with diabetes who sipped aloe vera juice lowered their fasting blood glucose levels by a significant amount. To try it, take 1 Tbsp twice a day.
Aloe vera contains vitamins and antioxidants that may help protect the immune systems and the skin from pollutants.
Aloe vera juice may boost your brain, too. In animal studies, the researchers have found that aloe vera can help improve memory.
