Aloe Vera is possibly one of the healthiest ingredients we can think of while talking about traditional medicine. Popularly known as Ghritkumari in Hindi, it is abundantly found growing in a kitchen garden or backyard. If you cut open an aloe vera leaf, you will find a translucent gel that is loaded with several nutritional properties. As per health experts, aloe vera includes vitamins, enzymes, minerals, salicylic acids, amino acids and more, which help benefit our overall health. In fact, as per Ayurvedic health expert Dr. Ashutosh Gautam, it provides "complete nourishment" to our overall body. While aloe vera has various usages, the juice is dubbed to be the best possible way to enjoy its benefits.
Further explaining the benefits of aloe vera juice, celebrity nutritionist Lovneet Batra shared a post on Instagram and stated, "Aloe vera is typically known for easing sunburns, treating dry skin conditions, and healing wounds. However, aloe vera is now being explored as a treatment for gut." That's right. Aloe vera is loaded with enzymes that help regulate metabolism and eliminate issues like constipation, dehydration et al. Nutritionist Batra further pointed out three key benefits of aloe vera juice for our gut-health. Take a look.
Health Benefits Of Aloe Vera Juice: Here're 3 Reasons To Drink Aloe Vera Juice For Gut-Health:
1.Used As Prebiotic:
Aloe vera includes acemanane, glucomannan, mannose polymers (accemannose), vitamin A, vitamin B1, B6 and vitamin C et al, which can possibly be used as a prebiotic to maintain the 'good' bacteria in your gut.
2.Regulates Bowel Movement:
Aloe vera includes aloin, which is known to have laxative effects. "Aloinstimulates colon contractions and decreases water absorption in the intestines, which induces and softens stools, respectively, helping in alleviating constipation," she added.
3.Reduces Gut Inflammation:
Aloe also has anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects, which may help lessen other digestive symptoms.
Now that you know the benefits of aloe vera juice, we suggest, include it in your diet for healthy digestion and metabolism. But always remember, moderation is the key.
