Aloe vera 20% gel solution was administered by gavage. After each group of experiments, blood samples were collected via blood from the heart. After preparation of serum hormones T3, T4 and TSH were measured by using electro-chemiluminescence. The data using ANOVA test statistics were compared between groups. Results: The results showed that mice receiving a 20% gel solution Aloe vera, serum levels of T3, T4 and TSH showed a significant decrease compared to the control group (respectively p<0.05, p<0.01, p<0.001).
