Episode Info:

There’s one plant that you should always have growing at home. Any guesses on what that plant is? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young medical minute. Aloe Vera is a great plant because it can grow outside in many climates, but it can also thrive in the kitchen window. Now, if you’re a cat owner, you will need to keep this out of the reach of your feline since it’s toxic to them. For us humans though, aloe vera is the perfect cure for a surface burn from cooking or even a sun burn. You can just cut off a small section of the plant, slice it down the middle of one side and then spread the gel inside over the affected area. Did you know that Aloe also has great benefits for your mouth? While you can’t eat it straight from your plant, aloe containing mouth washes are great for reducing plaque, freshening breath, and reducing inflammation of the gum line.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine. Learn why patients from around the globe trust Executive Medicine of Texas to their health. Visit EMTexas.com that’s EMTexas.com
