Lots of us keep some Aloe Vera around – thanks to its ability to help treat sunburns and small skin scratches. You’ll be surprised to learn that aloe is capable of much more than that: it has more than 75 powerful components and all of them can help us in one way or another. Emodin and aloin, for example, have an analgesic effect and relive from pain. Other Aloe Vera elements have anti-inflammatory abilities.
This is why this plant is so helpful for soothing joint pain. Apply Aloe Vera gel onto affected areas gently massaging it for better absorption. If would be better, if you use products that have a certification of the International Aloe Science Council. Generic brands are not as good as the certified ones: they have much less amount of aloe and may include ingredients that were damaged in the course of processing.
Some special Aloe Vera products can be used orally. This can be juices or capsules, whatever you find or prefer. Juices can be mixed with other liquids, this way you can create different shakes and smoothies each day. Bear in mind, that if you are on laxatives, diuretics or diabetic pills, you should consult your doctor before starting consuming aloe.
