The herb aloes have many health benefits, including reducing inflammation, making skin and hair feel soft, helping to keep the body hydrated and preventing the formation of blood clots.
But the most popular treatment for conditions like psoriasis and depression has also been found to be a powerful anti-inflammatory, reducing the risk of skin cancer.
Aloe veras are available in pill, gel and spray form, but they’re best when used as an anti-inflammation supplement, as they may help with inflammation and reduce the risk for psorias, psoriatic arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.
To help you find the right combination, the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) asked 2,100 people to identify their medical condition, including whether they had psorios, psorinitis, depression, arthritis or other conditions.
The results were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
The top 10 most commonly used anti-inflammatory herbs in the survey were: aloe juice (1.4%), aloe leaf (1%) aloe berry (0.9%), aloes oil (0%), almonds (0%) aloes, berry and coconut oil (1%), alochaea (1%).
Top 10 most common anti-invasive therapies in the NHANES survey: Aloe juice: 3.9%, aloe oil: 3%, alochacea: 3% Aloe leaves: 2.4%, Aloe bergamot: 1.8%, Aloes oil: 1%, Almond: 1% Aloes, almond: 1%.
