Benefits of Aloe Vera on Skin and Diet

Among the many plants in my garden, I most thankful to Aloe Vera because of its many benefits. 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.

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.”

Other benefits of aloe vera includes:

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
