What is Aloe vera for?

Aloe vera is a popular medicinal plant that has been used for thousands of years. It is best known for treating skin injuries, but it also has several other beneficial effects on health. Each leaf is full of a slimy tissue that stores water, which makes the leaves thick. This slimy, water-filled tissue is the “gel” we associate with Aloe vera. The gel contains most of the bioactive compounds in the plant, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants.
