Functions of the Aloe component in the CSN AloeMag supplement:
Aloe Vera is one of the oldest medicinal plants: its uses was first documented by the Egyptians in 3500BC.
It is a popular healing plant known for its health benefits both inside and outside the human body. The leaves are filled with a gel-like substance that is used in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food industries.
From a health point of view, you could reap the following benefits from regularly using an Aloe Vera supplement:
- Detoxifies the body
The gel like substance in the leaves of an Aloe Vera plant is beneficial in cleansing your body of unwanted toxins, bacteria and undigested food (faecal impactation) that build up in the stomach and intestinal wall. Aloe Vera furthermore has powerful alkalinising properties that help to balance your body’s pH levels. Acidic body pH levels contribute to the development of various illnesses. By alkalinising your body, you help cleanse your system and rid yourself of nasty toxins that have accumulated in your body over the years.
- Improves digestion
Aloe Vera contains various enzymes that aid in digestion. These enzymes help break down fats and sugars, and promote the absorption of important nutrients from the food you eat.
- Relieves constipation
Aloe Vera acts as a natural laxative that helps treat constipation. The plant has a sticky residue called latex which is found under the skin of the leaf. It is this latex that has a laxative effect which makes it useful to treat constipation. In addition to this the gel like substance in the leaves increases the water content in your intestines which in turn stimulates peristalsis (muscle contractions in the gut that helps to move solids and liquids through your gastro-intestinal tract). Peristalsis is needed to help pass a stool normally.
- Stabilizes blood sugar levels
Aloe Vera enhances insulin sensitivity and helps to improve blood glucose management. According to various sets of data, taking Aloe Vera as an oral supplement on a regular basis can significantly reduce blood glucose levels as well as HbA1c (this value is indicative of the average blood glucose levels over the previous three months) in prediabetic and diabetic patients.
The Aloe Vera gel contains glucomannan- this is a dietary fibre that is easily soluble in water and thus regulates blood sugar levels.
