Aloe Vera today is widely used in cosmetics, and also as an alternative medicine for some aliments instead of prescription medicine. There's about 120 different types of aloe, but the most common one used and grown is the aloe-vera.
The healing powers of this herb are found in the sticky leaves which contain a sticky gel and latex. The gel contains polysaccharides that makes it highly effective for external use. Aloe treats burns, cuts, and other skin irritations. If it's taken internally it works for digestive problems. That's where the latex goes to work.
