Question (10/11/2012):

Title: Dengue fever and aloe vera juice

I'm suffering from dengue fever with low platelets, so can I drink aloe vera juice?

It will increase my platelets?

Is it true?

Ashraf Ali


Dear Ashraf Ali,

Thank you very much for your question.

A report published August 2012 in ARCHIVES OF PHARMACAL RESEARCH by Abd-Alla HI, Abu-Gabal NS, Hassan AZ, El-Safty MM and Shalaby NM, indicated that extract of the aloe vera flowers and aloe vera leaves showed relatively higher antiviral activity than the extracts of other plant parts.

The report evaluated the antiviral activity of Aloe hijazensis against some haemagglutinating viruses infection and its phytoconstituents.
