Latinos LOVE Sábila (Aloe Vera). They see it as a miraculous plant that can cure almost any ailment. Some Latinos believe that if you eat aloe or rub it on your skin you can heal wounds, clear acne, or lose weight. Latinos LOVE home remedies many of which sábila is the main ingredient. Reading about the side effects of aloe vera, scientists found that the aloe gel is safe, but aloe latex isn't. Be careful mi gente, before trying any remedies ask a physician, read more about it from reliable sources and don't always believe what you hear. As for me, I opt out.
