Aloe Vera leaves have a load of minerals, amino acids, and vitamins. It is a well known anti-inflammatory and has antibacterial and antifungal properties.

How to Use Aloe Vera in Your Diet:

Aloe Vera is available in many forms like liquid extracts, gels, dry extracts, and juices. There are many Aloe vera recipes.

You can supplement your diet with aloea vera juice, which is made from aloe vera gel. Aloe vera juice helps achieve weight loss and keeps the digestive system healthy. A mixture of fruit juice, water, and aloe vera juice can be taken every day; it acts as a detoxifying agent.

Another way to get aloe vera is through dietary supplements. They are a mixture of pure aloe juice and other substances like citric acid, vitamin C, and ascorbic acid. These supplements are useful for treating constipation, indigestion, and stomach problems.

Aloe vera gel, extracted from the inner section of an aloe leaf, can be applied on skin to treat abrasions, cuts, sunburns, and allergies.
