Aloe Vera Cuts Cancer Risk

Aloe Vera Cuts Cancer Risk

The researchers believe aloe vera could be particularly valuable in treating ulcers caused as a side effect of taking anti-inflammatory NSAID drugs. The aloe vera gel was tested on a culture of gastric cells at a concentration that is likely to be found in the stomach after swallowing a dose. Aloe has been recognised as a painkiller, and since ancient times it has been used to treat burns. It has also been used to treat other skin conditions such as scrapes, sunburns and insect bites. Aloe is also a common ingredient in cosmetics and lotions because it naturally balances the pH of the skin.

Internally, it has been used as a mild laxative. There is also some evidence to suggest that it might enhance the functioning of the immune system.
