    Aloe Vera is a thick short-stemmed. Each leaf contains a slimy tissue that stores water and makes the leaves thick. This slimy, water-filled tissue is known as the gel that we associate with Aloe Vera products. It is used in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food industries. This gel contains most of the bioactive compounds in the plant like vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants. It form is usage is super extent it can we consumed orally (eaten or drunk), superficially on the skin (as a moisturizer, for small burns…) Aloe Vera can be grown and kept easily in a pot with soil with indirect sun, that’s why so many families have them at home for fast uses like burns.

    Aloe Vera is high in Vitamin C, E and beta-carotene, which give nourishing and anti-ageing qualities. It moisturizes the skin without making it greasy. A remedy for dry skin is to take some Aloe Vera gel with a teaspoon if honey and some drops of rose water. Blend everything and then apply to the face for 20 min.

    One of its benefits, and one of the most common uses that it has is the healing of sores or small burns (sunburns, boiling water with the oven…) by rubbing onto the skin. In 1959 Aloe Vera ointment was approved as a fast medication for burns (only first and second degree burns). It reduces the healing for around nine days compared to conventional medication. It is known also to reduce the time of healing of mouth ulcers that they usually appear underneath the lip, inside the mouth and last for about 7 to 10 days. Some studies have demonstrated that the ulcers are reduced in size but sometimes there is still need to use the conventional ulcer treatment that is corticosteroids.

    A said before, it has great healing properties for the skin, that’s why is one of the primary compounds used in cosmetic industry. It is known as vulnerary (it helps to heal wounds) and is good for applying topically to burns, abrasions, psoriasis and bug bites. It acts as an analgesic so it relieves pain. Is also an antipruritic that is a substance that relieves and prevents itching. It is also astringent: which causes the contraction of body tissues to reduce bleeding from minor abrasions. It has a high water content (over 99%) and it is great to hydrate moisturize and rejuvenate the skin. Aloe increases the elasticity of the skin making it more flexible through collagen and elastin repair. Aloe is an emollient, helping to soften and soothe the skin. It helps supply oxygen to the skin cells, increasing the strength and synthesis of skin tissue and induces improved blood flow to the skin through capillary dilation.

    It contains antioxidants that are good for detoxification. The gelatinous part of the plant is that the gel moves down the intestinal tract and absorbs toxins along the way and get eliminated though the colon. This helps the proper elimination of waste products from the body and helps the detoxification. It also helps with digestion because is known to soothe and cleanse the digestive tract and help improve digestion. Aloe Vera is an adaptogen that means that the internal intake can help with constipation or diarrhoea. It also helps to decrease the amount of ‘bad’ bacteria on the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) keeping the intestinal flora in balance. The intake of Aloe Vera has to be regulated just because it is beneficial it doesn’t mean that that a lot is more beneficial. This is a potent plant and we should have respect towards it. Long-term intake use can lead to the loss of electrolytes (especially potassium).

    This gives us the conclusion that Aloe Vera is a plant with many beneficial cosmetic and pharmaceutical processes. ‘Don’t put anything on your skin that you wouldn’t eat’. It has many good properties and it can be use superficially on the skin for hydration, healing of wounds or burns, for itching (antipruritic)… and also it can be taken orally (you can eat it) to make our digestive system work better. But this oral intake needs to be regulated because it is beneficial it doesn’t mean that that a lot is more beneficial. It’s a great plant with many beneficial properties for our body.
