Aloe Vera
In last week I didn't wrote anything about health.So I came up with a thought what can be better then health benefits Aloe Vera( as I consider it a little magician in nature's lap).This plant is a semi tropical, looks like a cactus though belong to tree lily family,which is used by Europeans and native Americans for almost 6,000 years.Now you can very well imagine how great this plant is.For ages this medicinal plant is misunderstood that it only heal burns only.But NO it does a lot more then that.It is a thick green plant,very short in height almost 2-4 inches.It have slightly tapered,shinny leaves.It is is only source of vitamin B12 which is required for nervous system and brain.It contains a thick gel inside it.Now coming to various benefits of Aloe Vera.

Though Aloe Vera  is not very good in taste,it is bitter but following are health benefits of Aloe Vera.
