WHAT IS ALOE VERA?  

Aloe Vera is often called the Miracle Plant, the Silent Healer, the Burn Plant or even the Medicine Plant, goes by many names which have survived the 4000 or so years during which this amazing medicinal herb has benefited mankind.

Aloe vera gel contains at least 75 known ingredients, and maybe more, which are yet to be discovered. These ingredients can be divided into the groups shown below:

Vitamins - it contains 12 vitamins, but the most imporant ones are the antioxidant Vitamins C and E and betacarotene, the precursor of vitamin A.  It is also one of the very few plants in the world to contain Vitamin B12.

Minerals - About 30 minerals of which include magnesium, manganese, zin, copper, chromium, calcium, sodium, potassium and iron.

Amino Acids - the human body requires 20 amino acids, the building blocks of proteins and aloe vera gel provides 19 of them.  More importantly, it provides seven of the eight essential amino acids that cannot be manufactured by the body and which therefore have to be consumed as food.

Sugars - these include the important long chain polysaccharides which act on the immune system to boost its effects.

Enzymes - lipases and proteases which break down food and aid digesion as well as a carboxypeptidase that is involved in the inflammatory process.

Plant Sterols - the three main types act as powerful antiinflamitory agents.

Saponins - these are soapy substances that exert a popwerful anti-microbial effect against bacteria, viruses, fungi and yeast such as candida or 'thrush'.

Lignin - this woody substance bestwos on aloe vera its penetrative ability to reach deep into the skin.

Anthraquinones - the most important ones being aloin and emodin, but altogether they are strong painkillers and are acknowledged to possess antibacterial and virucidal activity.  In their pure form, they are very powerful laxatives.

Salycylic Acid - this aspirin-like compound is anti-inflammatory when taken orally and used topically it helps to break down dead tissue.
