For luscious locks

Are you troubled by dandruff, frizzy hair or hair fall? If yes, then aloe vera is something that you might have been looking for.

Aloe vera does not only moisturise your hair but also helps to reduce dandruff, promote hair shine and restore the natural pH balance of your scalp.

Simply add water and some aloe vera juice into your leave-in-conditioner and you are good to go.

For diabetic patients

Who knew that aloe vera was beneficial for diabetes patients?

When type-2 diabetic patients consume aloe vera juice regularly, it improves their insulin sensitivity and regulates their blood levels. However, consumption of the right amount is important. Too much may damage your liver.

For relief from constipation

This plant consists of laxative agents that are capable of relieving constipation. Consume the yellow waxy substance that sticks to the skin of the plant and say goodbye to tummy problems.

Now that you know the benefits of this “magical” plant, it’s time for you to weave the magic of this plant in your life too!

Here’s an important tip: When drinking aloe, do not drink more than two to four ounces a day because that is all that’s required for maintaining your health (and drinking more does not mean you will get additional benefits!)
