Aloe has a long history as a remedy for many different ailments. Commonly known as Aloe Vera, the plant can be separated into two basic products: gel and latex. Aloe Vera gel is the leaf pulp or juice, a thin clear jelly-like substance obtained from the leaf that makes up the inner portion of the leaves.
The gel contains carbohydrate polymers, plus various other organic and inorganic compounds. Aloe latex, commonly referred to as “aloe juice,” is a yellow extract from the pericyclic tubules just beneath the outer skin of the leaves. For use as a laxative, the juice is often dried to produce aloe granules that are dark brown from exposure to the air.
Aloe gel has been used for treatment of wounds, minor burns, and skin irritations. Most consumers are familiar with aloe’s use in skin-care products, but aloe can also be used as a drink.
Aloe products for internal use have been used for constipation, coughs, wounds, ulcers, diabetes, cancer, headaches, arthritis, and many other conditions. Aloe has been used for all different types of things through out the years, and is now sold openly on the market.
