In both cases the aloe had positive effects. The size of the wounds decreased by 62% in animals who took the oral aloe compared to 51% in the control group. The topical aloe produced a 51% reduction in the size of the wound compared to 33% in the control group.

It reduces recovery time after surgery.

According to a report of the Journal of Dermatologic Surgery and Oncology aloe reduces recovery time after surgery.

A Eighteen patients of acne, who underwent surgery for facial dermabrasión were applied in the middle of the face of each patient gel post - surgical treatment standard, and the other half of the face was treated by adding aloe. Half of the face treated with aloe cured about 72 hours faster than the other half of his face.

The dermatologist James Fulton of Newport Beach, California, lead author of the report states: "Any wound that we try, either suturing a cut or remove a superficial cancer, heals better with aloe vera".

Soothes burns.

A report by the Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand, indicated that 27 patients with wounds caused by minor burns were treated with either aloe gel or Vaseline ™ (petroleum jelly) The burns healed more quickly in the aloe group, with an average time of healing 12 days compared to 18 days for the group treated with Vaseline.

Minimized the damage by freezing.

A study published in Annals of Emergency Medicine indicates that the aloe minimizes the effects of freezing.

The researchers applied the standards by freezing treatments (antibiotics, ibuprofen, and overheating) to 154 patients suffering from severe freeze. Of the patients who received the addition of aloe vera cream, 67. 9% healed without any tissue loss (amputation) compared to 32. 7% in the control group. The researchers concluded that aloe prevented a decrease in the flow of blood to tissues frozen, a common cause of the loss of tissue in the freeze.

Protected from the effects of radiation.

They found that aloe was an effective antioxidant, absorbing free radicals caused by radiation, and which protected two of the substances in the body, superoxide dismutase (an antioxidant enzyme) and GLUTATHIONE (an amino acid that stimulates the immune system)

Cure psoriasis lesions.

In a double, placebo - controlled, published by Tropical Medicine and International Health, 60 patients with chronic psoriasis were treated with 0. 5% of extracts of aloe vera in a cream of the mineral oil. The ointment was applied three times a day for five consecutive days (total 15 applications per week) for four weeks.

The aloe may also inhibit the auto - immune reaction associated with certain forms of arthritis, which attacks its own tissues.

The guinea pigs were injected with a bacteria to cause arthritic symptoms, including inflammation and swelling. To determine whether we could prevent arthritis, was supplied aloe, for 13 days (150 mg / kg bw / day) The checks were made daily to determine how much swelling and inflammation.

According to the researchers several compounds of aloe showed a antiartrítica. An organic acid of aloe reduced inflammation in 79. 7% and abolished the auto - immune response in a 42. 4%.

Annotations of HIV infection.

An extract of mannose, one of the sugars of aloe, can inhibit HIV - 1 (associated with the AIDS virus)

A study in Molecular Biotherapy (1991) HIV - 1 cells were treated in vitro with an extract of mannose. Aloe slowed the reproduction of the virus about 30%, reduced the viral load (amount of virus) suppressed the spread of the virus in infected cells, and increase the viability (chance of survival) of infected cells.

Food supplement for patients of HIV.

The aloe vera juice proved to be an effective part in a food aid program for patients of HIV + according to the newspaper Advancement in Medicine.

For four months, 29 patients gave 100% pure juice of aloe vera (five ounces, four times a day) together with a supplement of essential fatty acid and other vitamins and supplements containing amino acids. Patients were told to continue with their normal diet and not take other supplements.

After 90 days, all patients reduced the level of incidence of associated infections, thrush, fatigue and diarrhea, and increased the number of white blood cells in the blood (which meant that their immune systems were responding positively) Will appreciate an improvement in their quality of global health. In 25% of patients, the aloe reduced the virus' ability to reproduce. Researchers found that aloe (the extract of mannose and perhaps other compounds) stimulates the body's immune system, particularly T4 cells and white blood cells that activate the immune response to infection.

Stimulates the immune response against cancer.

The aloe may help prolong survival time and stimulate the immune system of cancer patients, according to recent research.

A 1994 study published in the medical journal Japanese Yakhak Hoeji shows that mice with cancerous tumors were treated with aloe orally for 14 days. While the aloe did not delete tumor growth, the average life of the mice was prolonged by 22% (with dose 50mg / kg body weight per day) and 32% (with a dose 100mg / kg body weight per day) A simultaneous experiment in human cancer cells (outside the body) found that high doses of aloe significantly suppressed the growth of these cancer cells.
