Benefits of aloe vera

We have all heard about aloe vera, and many of us know its benefits.
Aloe Vera has anti-inflammatory and cell-renewing properties, and it helps heal a partially thick burn wound in just 12 days. Vaseline gauze can take up to 18 days to heal the same wound. Aloe Vera is also known as the “burn plant”, and its gel is a popular, topical treatment for burns. The gel contains 99 per cent water, amino acids, glucomannans, lipids, sterols, and vitamins.
Aloe Vera can treat various ailments, including arthritis, eczema, and gastric ulcers. Its gel is a natural anaesthetic, and it is an antibacterial, antifungal, and hemostatic agent, increasing blood flow to wounds. Aloe vera juice is also a potent anti-inflammatory and can treat most digestive ailments. It also has a high antioxidant content, which helps prevent cancer.
Many studies have supported aloe vera’s use in medicines, cosmetics, and food. Most of these studies have focused on community-acquired infections and commensal micro-flora.
The first recorded use of aloe as a laxative was documented in the Sumerian city of Nippur around 2,200 B.C. Later, the Egyptian Papyrus Ebers recorded twelve different formulas that contained aloe as well as other substances. In Sumerian and Egyptian periods, aloe was regarded as a medicinal plant. Ancient Egyptians used it to treat infections, menstrual discomfort, digestive worms, burns, and haemorrhoids.
