It’s not every day that conservative bloggers and reporters are extolling the virtues of alternative medicine—but that’s exactly what’s happening as the world comes around on the power of Aloe Vera as a natural remedy …
Sure, we’ve long known its benefits as a remedy for dry or sunburnt skin—as a lavish, all-natural lotion that can make you feel great. But as people began to experiment with aloe; as scientists and foodies began to discover its role in Eastern medicine and cuisine, things have begun to change.
And even some of the most conservative outlets are beginning to report on the plant’s amazing properties …
Just last week, the decidedly conservative Newsmax Media published a fascinating story detailing recent scientific studies into the medicinal properties of Aloe Vera. The results—seen as a whole—are impressive.
But until recently, it’s been hard to get the full picture.
For the last few decades, “studies involving … type 2 Diabetes and heart problems have been small and lack appropriate scientific methodology,” according to Newsmax.
It’s long been known that aloe juice can be a powerful laxative, with plenty of benefits for sufferers of GERD and other digestive diseases. Preliminary findings indicate that it might also be able to help regulate blood sugar levels for those with type 2 diabetes—even help to balance cholesterol levels (a problem for many Americans).
But what if that’s just the beginning …
Can Aloe Vera boost your Heart Health?
As new and more intensive studies come online, scientists continue to learn fascinating new benefits offered by the humble household succulent:
Like one study from Angiology.com, which concluded that some 5,000 sufferers of chronic chest/heart pain reported relief and reduced angina attacks after taking regular doses of an Aloe Vera supplement. By the end of the study, an unbelievable 85% of the patients had their heart rhythm return to normal.
Combined with the benefit of reducing your LDL (low-density lipids, aka “bad” cholesterol) and increasing your HDL (high-density lipid) counts, these studies indicate that Aloe Vera may indeed be able to boost heart health—especially when taken preventively.
By mitigating many of these risk factors for heart disease, Aloe might just be a better heart treatment than many of the different solutions used throughout the history of pharmacology.
How do I even Take Aloe?
Historically, if it’s not applied topically Aloe has been taken as part of a juice often referred to as “Latex.” But since Aloe extraction methods remained very primitive until recent years, this juice was often deceptively ineffective, or it only offered a few of the plant’s many benefits because of how it was being ingested.
That’s part of what Newsmax was referring to in terms of the “lack of appropriate scientific methodology” for studying the succulents health benefits.
But now, thanks to modern innovations, extraction methods have become more efficient—and the quality of their extracts more potent. They’ve done so by zeroing in on a key active ingredient known as Aloe Mucilaginous Polysaccharides (AMPs)—the key to an extract’s potency.
Proven to be the source of Aloe’s many metabolic (and other) health benefits, AMPs don’t have to be taken in juice form to be absorbed. Instead, they can be served up in capsules … offering a pre-measured dosage concentrated natural nutrition any time you want it.
AMPs also allow for even higher concentrations of Aloe—with over 30 lbs of raw, organic Aloe going into each bottle of AloeElite capsules.
A Bellwether of Big Change
Of course, none of this is really news …
People have been taking Aloe as a medicine for centuries, and even extract sellers like AloeElite have been in business for a while now.
But the fact that people are starting to take notice—from liberals to conservatives and beyond—seems like an indication that the medicine’s finally doing its job. While the preliminary results from medical tests seem to indicate Aloe’s effectiveness in supporting heart health, these reports from major publishers indicate that the media (and society at large) are starting to take notice.
With more funding for medical studies and greater public awareness, it’s quite possible that the sky’s the limit for everyone’s favorite succulent …
