Aloe is a green prickly plant that grows all around the world but is native to Africa. It is able to survive in areas where there is little rainfall. While science says there is little proof of this plant’s effectiveness, this plant has found its way into many homes by way of creams, juices, or gels.
The benefits of aloe vera include:
It increases the amount of oxygen to the area, which aids in wound healing, and because it contains enzymes called carboxypeptidase along with bradykininase, these enzymes help to decrease inflammation and swelling, which in turn aids with pain.
Always remember that herbal and plant extracts are not to be used in place of healthy habits, but instead for the occasional assistance to bring the body back into alignment when assistance is needed. When you have an issue that continues to persist after trying standard home remedies, and if there is no resolution, then it is best to see your doctor.
