Aloe is known for its topical healing abilities, however, it does much more then treat skin topically. Most people have used fresh aloe gel on a burn and experienced great relief.
Aloe is a common plant that not only has healing abilities topically but also has an amazing ability to heal internally as well. Aloe juice made from the pulp of the aloe leaves is an incredible aid to many ailments. It has been known to help diabetics, boost immunity, as well as help relieve digestive disorders. Aloe has incredible healing digestive enzymes called amylase and lipase. Aloe is also very rich in antioxidants, Vitamins B C & E, chromium, magnesium as well as all of the eight essential amino acids. It has also been noted that absorption of nutrients increases when consumed with aloe.
