The plant of the day (5) : Aloe Vera

Morning everyone, 

Another house plant i'm adding to the 'plant of the day' list is the Aloe plant, a plant which revolutionists the medicine last century, it's getting well known all over thr world for its unbelievable benefits. 


The Aloe vera plant has been used for thousands of years to heal a variety of conditions, most notably burns, wounds, skin irritations, and constipation. It is grown in subtropical and tropical locations, including South Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Aloe was one of the most frequently prescribed medicines throughout most of the 18th and 19th centuries and it remains one of the most commonly used herbs in the United States today. However, oral use of aloe for constipation is no longer recommended, as it can have severe side effects.

The Aloe Vera is getting much attention and interest all over the world, people are more convinced that plants can cure what GSK, BAYER can't with medicines. the Aloe Plant is an example of plants which are revolutionizing the medicine.
