Using Aloe Vera for Hypertension

Important Note:

One of the most commonly reported attributes of Aloe Vera is the way in which it helps the body move itself back into balance. In exactly the same way as hypertension cannot be fully explained, how Aloe Vera works is also not fully understood although it is clear that it does help clean the digestive tract which in turn means the body is able to absorb more vitamins and minerals. This in turn boosts the body's own immune system which can be beneficial to the sufferer.

Start with a low dose of Aloe Vera, around a tablespoon three times a day before meals. Build up the dose gradually until you start to feel an effect and then slowly reduce to a maintenance dose.

How long will it take for Aloe Vera to work with Hypertension?

How long it takes to experience a benefit varies from person to person. Some note an improvement within a few hours, others several weeks. In general expect one month for every year you have had hypertension.
