Eat some aloe vera to relieve constipation

Mr. Yang from Beijing provided: I have been constipated for many years. I have tried many methods and it is useless. Recently my friend told me such a recipe: take about 20 grams of fresh aloe vera just cut from the flower pot, stir-fry and even serve for two days. Constipation can be alleviated. I would like to ask the experts to analyze whether it is effective.

Professor Yang Li from the Chinese Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine commented: There are many reasons for constipation. For constipation caused by diseases, it should be solved by a specialist. For constipation caused by non-disease factors such as irregular eating, lack of fiber in the diet or lack of water, readers can use the remedies available.

Aloe has a laxative effect, because aloe contains aloe vera and aloe-emodin, which can promote the secretion of large intestine fluid, increase the activity of lipase, and restore the dysfunctional autonomic nervous function of the large intestine. For the sake of taste, when you eat aloe vera, you can put in oil and salt to eat.

Need to remind everyone that aloe vera can not eat more, because emodin has side effects on the body. Adults should not use more than 15 grams per day, children and the elderly should be reduced by 20% to 50%, and those who have constipation can eat more. Pregnant women and menstruating women are strictly forbidden to take aloe vera to avoid abdominal pain or even miscarriage. In addition, people suffering from hemorrhoids bleeding, nose bleeding should not take aloe vera, otherwise, it may cause the disease to deteriorate.

In order to alleviate constipation, it is recommended that everyone drink plenty of water, eat more fruits and vegetables, and try to eat more fruits and drink less juice. Because fruit contains more fiber than juice, for example, a glass of orange juice provides only 0.1 grams of fiber, while an orange can provide 2.9 grams of fiber. In addition, it is best to develop the habit of regular bowel movements every day, and drinking honey water every morning can also reduce constipation. If long-term constipation cannot be relieved by yourself, it is recommended to seek medical advice promptly.
