Aloe Vera and Wounds Healing

mechanismOfActionOfAloeVeraThe bulk of aloe leaf is filled with gel, 96% water with the other 4% containing 75 known substances. Applied to wounds, aloe gel is mild anesthetic, relieving itching, swelling, and pain; it also is antibacterial and antifungal, increases blood flow to wounded areas, and stimulates fibroblasts, the skin cells responsible for wound healing.

An animal-based study in the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association found that both oral and topical aloe preparations speed  wound healing.  Animasl were given either aloe (100 mg/kg body weight) in their drinking water for two months or 25% aloe vera cream applied directly to wounds for six days.

Aloe had positive effects in both cases. The size of wounds decreased 62% in the animals taking oral aloe compared to a 51% decrease in the control group. Topical aloe produced a 51% decrease in wound size compared to 33% in the control group.

    I used to be wondering if you ever considered changing the layout
    of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But you could possibly could a little bit more in the form of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got a great
    deal of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Perhaps you could space it out better?
