Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera has been used in herbal medicine for centuries. Studies examining the effect of taking an oral Aloe Vera gel supplement in patients with diabetes have produced conflicting results. Two studies have shown that taking an aloe gel supplement can reduce blood sugar in women with type 2 diabetes. However, another later study could not confirm the same results. More research is needed.

Drink Up

Pros: Aloe helps me with my joint discomfort and aids in digestion

Cons: The taste is not really that pleasant

Overall: I drink aloe vera juice or gel with a mixture of coconut water and lime juice. It's very refreshing and while I have not used it for lowering my glucose levels, I believe it's overall health benefits are very good.
