Abstract

Aloe vera, sometimes referred as a "miraculous" or "wonder" plant, has been used by mankind for centuries for the treatment of different disorders due to the inner gel of its succulent leaves. Medical usage and applications of the main species, namely Aloe vera (L.) Burm. f. are mainly attributed to immunomodulatory or antioxidant activities.
