Aloe Vera Benefits

 You probably grew up knowing that Aloe Vera benefits and heals your burns and now you may see it as an ingredient in your shampoo, topical cream, or even facial tissue. Have you ever wondered what makes Aloe Vera so amazing, or why it's so well known as an aid in healing?

There are hundreds of species of Aloe in the world but only 4 of all these have nutritional value suitable for animals or humans - hence internal usage. Aloe barbadensis miller (pronounced bar ba den sis) or, Aloe vera, is the most common and potent of the Aloe family.

This spiky green succulent looks like a cactus relative, though they are not botanically related. Snap open any one of the plump leaves and you will find a clear sticky gel that serves as a dynamic healing agent.  Inner aloe jelly helps the plant conserve natural moisture by pulling dampness from its surrounding environment. When the gel is placed on human skin, it has a similar effect. Also know as the “burn plant,” Aloe restores moisture to the skin that has been lost through harm while soothing pain in the process.

Aloe Veras seemingly magical qualities do not end there! The plant’s anti-inflammatory properties have been likened to comparable steroids. It serves as a bactericidal, virucidal, and fungicidal (anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal) that keeps vulnerable wounds free from infection and other potentially harmful microscopic dangers. After penetrating the damaged tissue, Aloe dilates capillaries that increase blood supply to the damaged area. Injuries treated with Aloe reveal an advanced content of aldehydic groups (organic compounds) which allow for higher degrees of “cross-linking;” strengthening the wound tissue during healing. Aloe vera has also been shown to augment collagen levels of granulation tissue. Increased collagen content not only aids in the overall curative process, but it also builds a better, more forgiving final scar.

Because of its unique properties, Aloe lends itself to battle more severe skin conditions such as psoriasis and genital herpes.

Making regular appearances on ingredient labels of lotions and soaps, Aloe gel naturally infiltrates your skin, bringing its moisturizing abilities deep within for more effective healing. While Aloe use dates back to the Egyptians (who regarded it as a sacred plant), modern research shows that Aloe barbadensis miller enhances the proteolytic enzyme action in skin tissue. By supporting exfoliation and cell division, Aloe gel hastens the production of healthy tissue. This rejuvenates even the roughest, toughest epidermis, making it feel soft and supple. 

While it has long been known to sooth burns, cuts, and scrapes there are many benefits to ingesting the Aloe Vera juice as well. There are 19 amino acids, 20 minerals and 12 vitamins in Aloe Juice and the benefits of it are great, including:

  • Improved circulation
  • Regulation of blood pressure
  • Aid To Immune System
  • Help Repair Internal Tissue Damage
  • Aids Ulcers

  • Cleanses Colon
  • Assists in weight loss by stimulating the metabolic rate which means you burn more energy
  • Aids with heartburn
  • Inhibits growth of harmful bacteria which can cause illness

All this and more! You can't go wrong!

Aloe Vera has a mild flavor and can come in many different flavors that are added to it. For the best aloe vera juice benefits you should drink about 2 -4 ounces, twice a day.
