Aloe Vera is widely valued for its ability to heal even the most severe burns and to soothe irritated skin. In fact, Aloe Vera is listed as effective for a very wide range of ailments. This always makes me a little bit skeptical, but in the case of Aloe Vera, most of the reports seem to be true. Taken internally, Aloe Vera is a laxative and a regulator of bowel function.

Some people have found it effective, in small quantities, in the healing of ulcers. The oral ingestion of Aloe Vera for at least 6 months has been shown to be effective in the treatment of asthma BUT the Aloe Vera extract was not effective in any way at all in all of the patients who were already dependent on steroids.
