Is Aloe Vera Safe For Treating Stomach Acid?
Good night, I read the article here that aloe vera is useful for curing gastric ailments … are you safe for consumption if people with stomach disease have diabetes?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Aloe vera is a plant that we often encounter and so far it is known to have many benefits, both from the aspect of beauty, and from the aspect of health.
From the health aspect, the benefits of aloe vera can be found in the form of juice. This plant contains vitamins A, C and E, salicylic acid, phenolic compounds, sterols, and amino acids that can provide benefits in the form of overcoming constipation, improving nutrition, preventing dehydration or lack of fluids, launching the digestive system and dealing with heartburn, both of which caused by stomach acid, or because of injury to the stomach.
Regarding your question, basically what should be limited for diabetics is sweet and high carbohydrate foods. If aloe vera you mean is aloe vera that is sold in the market, some are no longer pure. There are many preservatives and sweeteners mixed to make it taste better, and these sweeteners should not be consumed by diabetics. But if you mean natural aloe vera, as long as it's not sweet, it's okay to consume it for diabetics. So, hopefully answering your question.
