Aloe Vera Juice is a Beneficial Alternative
Against Urinary Tract Infections
Urinary tract infections (UTI) are often treated through the use of pharmaceutical drugs. However, there are also natural options for individuals who seek a safer but potentially effective alternative.
Aloe vera juice may be a potentially beneficial alternative against urinary tract infections. This condition is one of the most common kidney disorders. It affects not just the kidneys, but also the urethra or bladder.
Women are more at risk of developing a UTI. Cystitis, which is an infection of the bladder, is typically the cause of UTI in women. It could also be caused by an infection of the urethra, which is called urethritis.
It may also be caused by sexually transmitted diseases.
Some of its symptoms are painful urination, strong urge to frequently urinate, foul odour, cloudy urine, pelvic pain, shaking, nausea, and chills.
UTIs are normally treated with antibiotics. The type of drug recommend usually depends on the kind of bacteria that causes the urinary tract infection.
There are also at-home alternatives and changes in diet and lifestyle that are thought to be helpful for urinary tract infections. This may include avoiding the use of deodorants, drinking plenty of water, and avoiding douches that cause irritation to the bladder.
Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis or Aloe Barbadensis-Miller) is an alternative that can be helpful treating urinary tract infections.
Aloe vera gel as well as the latex found in the leaf of the plant may be used for health-related purposes. According to experts, aloe vera gel consists of 99% water and 1% tannins, polysaccharides, glycoproteins, lipids, sterols, enzymes, amino acids, and vitamins C, E, and B12.
It also has zinc, magnesium, calcium, protein, and essential fatty acids. It has long been used as an alternative for skin infections, burns, wound, and other topical skin infections.
In a 2002 study, it was found that the mucopolysaccharides found in aloe vera may be a beneficial option for interstitial cystitis. This condition affects the pelvic region, and can happen to UTI sufferers.
