Aloe vera is a popular medicinal plant that has been used for thousands of years. It is sometimes described as the wonder plant. Each leaf is full of a slimy tissue that stores water, which makes the leaves thick. This slimy, water-filled tissue is the "gel" we associate with Aloe vera products and is best known for treating skin injuries
The gel contains most of the bioactive compounds in the plant, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants.
