Aloe vera is a plant that has various and multiple virtues; it is excellent in cosmetics for skin and hair but also as a medicinal remedy. Aloe vera has laxative properties that help the bowel to evacuate stool more easily and naturally. This capacity is due to the anthraquinones contained in its gel. These substances boost the secretion of mucus and act as a laxative by increasing the water content in the intestine. All this increases intestinal peristalsis which facilitates the evacuation of stool.
