From a Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, aloe vera is a cooling medicine for the liver, kidney, and the intestine’s meridian channels. It is also able to dispel heat in the liver, and due to its laxative effect, it can be useful for people suffering from constipation and weight loss.
How to consume it: Make a drink with honey and lemon; slice and serve it as a cold dish with cold noodles.
Take note: People with weak digestive systems should not take too much aloe vera. Pregnant women should avoid it.
