1. Contains healthful plant compounds
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 products.
The gel contains most of the bioactive compounds in the plant, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants.
2. Antioxidant and antibacterial properties
Aloe vera gel contains powerful antioxidants, which belong to a large family of substances known as polyphenols.
Antioxidants are important for health and some of the compounds found in Aloe Vera can inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria
3. Helps heal burns faster
It has long been known as a treatment for sores, particularly burns, including sunburns
4. Reduces dental plaque
When used as a mouth rinse, pure Aloe vera juice is just as effective at reducing dental plaque buildup as regular mouthwash.
5. Helps treat canker sores
Application of Aloe vera, either as a patch or gel, has been shown to aid in the recovery of mouth ulcers (canker sores).
6. Reduces constipation
Aloe vera latex has strong laxative effects, making it useful to treat constipation. It does not appear to be beneficial for other diseases of the digestive tract.
