Where To Find Aloe Vera?

Aloe Vera can be found in some street fairs. If you are going to buy Aloe Vera for ingestion, make sure it is the Aloe Vera Barbadensis species. Other species can be toxic (fortunately, Barbadensis is the most common species).

Many people plant Aloe Vera at home. Or you can also buy one and take care of it at home.

There are natural products based on Aloe Vera, ready drinks. However, the best is always to make sure it is pure and without any chemical additives.
