Aloe vera has immense health benefits for the body. The health benefits can be derived from the plant stems or the gel.
· Aloe vera is good for people with diabetes since it lowers blood sugar.
· Aloe vera can fight off cancer since it has anti-tumor properties.
· Polysaccharides and glycoproteins in aloe vera are particularly good in easing pain and inflammation in the skin. They also help in skin growth and repair.
Rather than rely on commercial air freshening products in which sprays and oils contain toxic chemicals that are bad for the body, consider buying a few aloe vera plants. They act as an air purifier, capable of clearing formaldehyde and benzene, toxins that are eye and lung irritants.

Mike Dilkes ENT is based in Central, North, East and South London. Most of our consultations and treatments are carried out either at The Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth or The London Independent Hospital. The Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth is one of London's biggest and most prestigious private hospitals.
It is in St Johns's Wood, a leafy area of the west end, just north of Harley Street and Regent's Park. The London Independent Hospital is in Stepney Green, hidden away just behind Mile End Road, just to the East of the City of London. Formally The London Jewish Hospital, it is a purpose built modern building with full facilities, beautifully appointed rooms, state of the art laser systems and, in case anything goes wrong (it really shouldn't), a fully covered Consultant 24 hour ward and Intensive Care presence - the only private hospital in London to have this.
