3 Medicinal Uses of Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a medicinal herb that has been cultivated by humans for centuries. The earliest record of it being used as such was in the 16th century, B.C. I am going to share with you three very valuable medicinal uses of Aloe Vera that you can use for years to come and/or pass the knowledge on to others. Aloe Vera is a succulent, soft plant that has many pointy leaves that are thickest at the bottom, then work their way up to a very sharp point. There are also many little white teeth on both sides of the leaf almost like a serrated blade.

The first of the medicinal uses of Aloe Vera that I am going to share with you is the most commonly known, burn/wound/sunburn application. If you ever have a sunburn, a regular burn or a minor wound...applying the sap from the inside of the aloe vera leaf can be very soothing indeed and also provide healing and rejuvenating results.

Other medicinal uses of Aloe Vera include one study that showed Aloe Vera traces were responsible for lowering the blood glucose of diabetics. People can eat Aloe Vera yogurt or drink it in special herbal teas.

Finally, the last of the medicinal uses of Aloe Vera that I will share with you today. Aloe Vera extracts have been used to treat ulcerative colitis and it has successfully reduced the inflammation.

There are many other medicinal uses of Aloe Vera that I could go on about for pages...from creams, ointments, soaps, yogurts, sunscreen, sunburn relief and healing, etc. No wonder people have been cultivating this very beneficial herb for thousands of years.
