Vital: Nature's cures: Aloe vera gives new hope to arthritis sufferers.

ALOE Vera is one of nature's best remedies for a range of ailments. It can heal wounds, ulcers and burns, help fight infections and treat acne and eczema. Now researchers believe it could give pain relief to arthritis sufferers, while having no known side effects. Conventional arthritis treatment relies on anti-inflammatory drugs and steroids, which ease pain but can't repair damaged tissues.

According to the Aloe Vera Information Centre, 'repairing damaged tissue by regenerating cells is a function at which Aloe Vera has been successful'.

The aloe plant is native to Africa and was first used in medicine thousands of years ago by the Egyptians. It boosts the immune system and contains natural anaesthetic and antiseptic agents. Try Aloe Pura Aloe Vera Gel, priced pounds 4.99 for 200ml, or their Aloe Vera Juice, pounds 5.99 for 500ml, both available from Holland & Barrett. For your nearest stockist call 01274 360 000
