Some of the Aloe species can be poisonous and the potency/“healing power” of the Aloe extract, is greatly determined by the composition of the individual Aloe’s sap. There is no scientific proof that the Aloe sap can promote the release of insulin in the body and so play an important role in the control of blood glucose levels in Diabetes. Aloin, one of the sap’s components, is a known cause of diarrhea.

In one 90-day study, administering dried aloe vera gel to experimental animals on a high-fat diet reduced body fat accumulation by increasing the number of calories they burned.

Still, more studies are needed to determine whether aloe vera may offer similar health benefits in humans.
