Aloe vera is a species of succulent plant in the Aloe genus. The plant has thick, fleshy, greenish leaves that fan out from the stem at the center and is stemless or has extremely short stems. The leaf's margin is toothed and serrated.
Aloe vera, which is frequently praised for its calming effects, is most frequently applied topically to treat burns, sunburns, and skin abrasions, but when eaten orally, this ancient plant may have more potent therapeutic properties. Aloe vera is commonly used in skin creams and cosmetics because it hydrates skin and offers anti-aging properties. On the other hand, the plant has long been regarded as a potent superfood by many people who adhere to a natural medicine ideology.
It's gel contains 99.5% water while the remaining 0.5% is composed of amino acids, polysaccharides, phytosterols, vitamins A, C, D, and E, potassium, magnesium, and zinc. Most people are familiar with gel but there is latex/juice too that comes out when the leaf is cut which is quite bitter and induces an allergic reaction.
