Advantages of Aloe

As of late, it seems that Aloe is best known as a treatment for the skin, particularly for burns. However, Aloe, which is related to garlic provides a number of benefits and useful applications. And here are just a few.

1. As a laxative, Aloe can be used to treat constipation.

2. By destroying bacteria and fungi, Aloe can serve as an infection fighter.

3. Aloe has been found, by at least one study, to be a treatment for genital herpes.

4. Aloe has been shown to be a treatment for psoriasis.

5. In animal studies, Aloe juice has demonstrated the ability to lower glucose levels (always a matter of concern for diabetics and pre-diabetics).
