Benefits of Aloe Vera

I have a lot of Aloe Vera in my garden. It started from a small pot given by my neighbor 3 years ago. I did not tend it much but it started growing and growing. I never gave much attention to  until last year when I saw my twin kids buying those aloe vera in green tub from Korean Skin Stores. Ang mahal nun ha! Dahil matipid at praktikal akong nanay I read and watch blogs and vlogs on the benefits of Aloe Vera para ito na ang gagamitin nila instead of buying. Maganda naman ang resulta! Syempre nase save na ang money! 😁

Aloe vera leaves are comprised of three parts: the skin, the gel and the latex. They're best known for their gel, which is responsible for most of its health benefits. While most people apply the gel to their skin, it's also safe to eat when prepared right.

This is a list of the benefits of aloe vera:
Contains healthful plant compounds.
Antioxidant and antibacterial properties.
Accelerates the healing of burns.
Reduces dental plaque.
Helps treat canker sores.
Reduces constipation.
May improve skin and prevent wrinkles.
Lowers blood sugar levels

Daily consumption of aloe vera juice is believed to fight and cure a range of digestive disorders including poor digestion, constipation, acidity and gas. It is also beneficial in boosting appetite and keeping a check on weight gain. Aloe vera juice consumption flushes out toxins from the body.

Aloe vera contains something called proteolytic enzymes which repairs dead skin cells on the scalp. It also acts as a great conditioner and leaves your hair all smooth and shiny. It promotes hair growth, prevents itching on the scalp, reduces dandruff and conditions your hair

How do you apply it to the hair?
Cut a leaf from a live aloe vera plant. Using a spoon, collect the gel (some like to blend it with coconut or olive oil), rub the gel or mixture directly into the scalp and let it sit for an hour. Use a mild shampoo to wash the hair and scalp. Repeat this process 2-3 times a week, as needed.

Is Aloe Vera good for your face?
“Aloe Vera has lots of uses,” said Kim Chang, aesthetician with the Baylor Aesthetics Studio. “It contains antioxidants, enzymes, Vitamins A and C, and it is highly anti-inflammatory. It can help treat burns, acne and dry skin.”
