    All the answers given above are true. Besides there are atleast 150 other ailments where aloe vera is used. You should first know the properties of the plant before knowing its uses.
    The proven workability of Aloe vera has created over 4,000 scientific papers to be written on the subject. There is no other plant that has been so thoroughly studied for its beneficial qualities to the human system.
    No one is sure when Aloe was first used medicinally, but it is known that Chinese doctors were prescribing it at least 3,000 years ago and the Egyptian healers wrote of Aloe’s powers in the 4th century B.C.
    Aloe Vera is a wonderful detoxifier. Its anti-cancer value has been demonstrated in study after study. It is also an immunomodulator, meaning it will balance your immune system.
    Aloe Vera plant produces at least 6 antiseptic agents: Lupeol, salicylic acid, urea nitrogen, cinnamonic acid, phenols, and sulphur. All of these substances are recognized as antiseptics because they kill or control mold, bacteria, fungus, and viruses, explaining why the plant has the ability to eliminate many internal and external infections. The Lupeol and salicylic acid in the juice explains why it is a very effective pain-killer.
    Aloe Vera contains at least three anti-inflammatory fatty acids, cholesterol, campersterol and B-sitosterol (plant sterols) which explains why it is a highly effective treatment for burns, cuts, scrapes, abrasions, allergic reactions, rheumatoid arthritis, rheumatic fever, acid indigestion, ulcers, plus many inflammatory conditions of the digestive system and other internal organs, including the stomach, small intestine, colon, liver, kidney, and pancreas. B-sitosterol is also a powerful anti-cholestromatic which helps to lower harmful cholesterol levels, helping to explain its many benefits for heart patents.
    Aloe contains at least 23 polypeptids (immune stimulators), then we understand why Aloe juice helps control a broad spectrum of immune system diseases and disorders, including HIV and AIDS. The polypeptids, plus the anti-tumor agents Aloe emodin and Aloe lectins, explains its ability to control cancer.

    I’ve used aloe vera for many things..
    Juice: for colds.. with lemon juice and water..almost like a lemonade.
    The plant itself: for burns. Cut the plant, take the "crystals" and apply to the burn… soothing.
    Scars: lotion for sunburn and for scars…

    I have a large plant of it in my room. If I burn myself or cut myself or have a skin ailment I just break off a piece and get the liquid straight on to the affected area, and it does wonders. I also use Aloe Vera creams etc and they do help with skin problems.

    It helps the skin to heal from almost anything, from burns to stretch marks. Brilliant for shaving rash. If you have a plant, you can rub the leaves on you for shaving gel. If you use it for sunburn, I think it’s one of the things that turn burn into tan.

    A few people are allergic to the plant though.

    Internally, I’ve heard it can help all sorts of ailments, including Crohn’s disease. You have to be careful which part of the leaf you use, as "aloes" used to be a purgative in past times. I think you have to avoid the skin of the leaves.

  • i drink the juice as it is antifungal and seems to help with fungal infections…the gel is good but is seems to be hard to get pure aloe vera gel..im just looking a t a bottle now and it says ‘pure gel’ and when u look at the ingredients it is pure gel but just not pure aloe vera gel..i wouldnt really trust it straight from the plant coz there isnt different types you can get and one may not have the same effect as another!

    I used it when I had excess stomach acid. It worked well, the only thing it tasted foul I had to mix it with fresh orange juice and still had to drink it down quick.

    I’ve used the gel before on sunburn. It’s sticky. I didn’t like it.

    Yes, I use the gel quite a bit. It is very soothing for all skin irritations such as burns, sunburns, cuts, insect bites, acne, , etc. I use the gel directly from the plant. If you buy it, it’s important to get at least get 99% certified organic Aloe Vera gel.

    I’ve ordered aloe vera juice. It didn’t do much. Nor did it taste good.

    I used aloe vera gel on a sunburn. It didn’t cool it down that well.

    The best form of aloe vera is the plant. I used the gel from the aloe vera leaf on my chicken pox scars and it helped it heal faster and left me with less scars.

    Hi dollie. Aloe Vera is a humiditant-meaning it draws moisture to the area you use it on, that’s why it works excellent on burns, scraps, etc. In beauty creams it reduces or perhaps reverses the aging process because it helps to restore lost moisture to the skin, thus reducing aging process because of the vital moisture that is lost as we age. It’s also a lubricant and works like oil in our cars when ingested into the body. Remember to only use the food grade Aloe Vera juice though. It can help soothe, even heal ulcers and hernias of the stomach and such. Very more info on Aloe Vera go to ask.com and type it in, there are tons of sites you can find that tell all about it’s abilities to heal and such. Take care.

    Aloe is great for a number of things and now you can get a Gel called SiloeVera that is a combination of Aloe Vera and Silver. It works really great and is 100% natural. They ship it worldwide at notaquitter.com so try some and you will see what I mean.
