Aloe Vera Uses : Wound Healing

Aloe Vera are great plants for healing wounds when used both orally and topically. Below I will explain two great examples, backed with scientific literature of aloe vera uses when it comes to wound healing.

Aloe Vera Plant Uses -Drinking For Wound Healing

In a study by Dr. Davis et al. it was found that when animal drank Aloe Vera orally they experienced a 62.5% reduction in would diameter compared to animal who drank plain water for 2 months (control).  Note, the mice received 100 mg/kg/day of aloe vera.

Aloe Vera For Skin

Dr. Davis, et al. and his team also published that when aloe vera is applied topically to mice, they experienced a 50.8% reduction in wound diameter. Although this is a 11.7% reduction in improvement compared to drinking aloe vera, it is still a significant improvement in would healing.  Specifically, the scientist put a 25% w/v concentration in Eucerin cream.

Aloe Vera Uses – Wound Healing Results

Overall, one can see that aloe vera has great use in would healing. The data by Dr. Davis, et al. suggests that aloe vera is effective by both oral and topical routes of administration.
