Experts explain some of the lesser-known advantages of aloe vera, a nutritional powerhouse, from digestive issues to dental problems.
Many people turned to age-old health practices and ayurvedic medicines to bolster their immune systems during the pandemic-induced lockdown, which is still at the forefront of our fight against Covid-19. Furthermore, as at-home health becomes more popular, DIY face packs and hair masks are becoming increasingly popular as a go-to solution for a range of hair and skin issues. Aloe vera is a frequent component in many of these home treatments.
The leaves of the aloe plant have three parts: an odorless and transparent inner gel, a bitter yellowish secretion known as latex, and a thick outer layer or rind, which is known as kathali in the wide realm of Ayurveda. Experts have lauded the gel component of this plant as a miracle remedy for sunburn, skin, and hair problems, but there is so much more to this plant in terms of general health and well-being.
“Aloe vera is a miraculous plant that is also a superfood that may help you enhance your overall health. It contains prebiotic ingredients that aid in the normal functioning of the digestive system by feeding good bacteria in the stomach. Aloe vera has been proved in studies to be beneficial for digestion and a very effective herb for stomach treatment. It has vitamins, minerals, amino acids, salicylic acids, and anti-inflammatory properties, which assist with diarrhea, constipation, bloating, stomach discomfort, and cramps, according to dietician Sushma PS.
