There are many benefits to this terrific plant.  Drinking aloe vera juice has been known to detoxify the body and cleanse the colon.  The gel within each aloe vera leaf acts as an  antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal agent.  It can also heal ulcers, improve circulation, and give you energy.  With this many benefits, you may be wondering why we're not all drinking aloe vera juice everyday.  There's another way to have aloe at your fingertips; grow your own plant.

The aloe plant is a succulent which can be grown indoors or outdoors.  They grow best in very hot and dry places so if you're growing them through a cold winter, grow them indoors and under or near light.

Enjoy them through a drink, or grow your own.  Either way, a toast to aloe vera!
