What is aloe vera?

It is a cactus-like plant having thick fleshy leaves containing a liquid known as aloe vera gel. This gel is made up largely of water (95%) and mucopolysaccharides, which have soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. It helps in the treatment of:

  • skin inflammation
  • psoriasis
  • dandruff
  • sunbums
  • tummy upsets due to heat, alcohol or unfamilar food
  • inflammation of intestines (colitis)

It can be taken orally in liquid form or can be applied to the skin.
