It is well known in the cosmetic and skin care industry that AloeVera has a positive effect on the skin as a healing and anti-aging agent because of its ability to penetrate tissue due to its lignin content and partly due to its anaesthetic, antibacterial, antiviral , antifungal and anti-inflammatory effects. However less well known are those effects also have a positive result on the inside of the body when drunk as an AloeVera Gel.

AloeVera Gel has three important qualities

Nutrients and vitamins

A poor diet, one that is deficient in the key elements, will not allow the body to maintain itself. Unfortunately with today’s increase in fast food and ready meals most of us are likely to be short of some of items that we require. AloeVera gel is fairly unique in nature as it contains a very nutritional food, with vitamins A, B12, C, E and Folic Acid, 19 of the 20 Amino Acids the body needs including 7 of the 8 essential amino acids and many minerals including Copper , Manganese, Magnesium and Chromium. It also includes Lignin which aids absorption, Saponins which are soapy with antiseptic properties and Enzymes which are divided between indicating digestion and anti-inflammatory. There are also the sugars such as glucose and fructose and long-chain sugars called polysaccharides of which Acemann is the main one. Acemannan is used in a drug to boost the immune system in animal cancer cases. Also plant sterols which are important anti-inflammatory agents and Salicylic acid which is like aspirin having pain-killing properties are contained. By drinking the gel first thing in the morning not only do you receive the benefits of the gel but also having better absorption of your breakfast.

It kills bacteria, viruses, fungi and yeast

AloeVera Gel have been shown to kill or suppress certain bacteria, viruses, fungi and yeast but its most important internally killing Candida infections in the gut. Externally it has the ability to destroy organisms that invade damaged skin and wounds, which otherwise delay or prevent healing. It is thought that probably happens internally but of course this is hard to prove.

It brings inflammation

Inflammation is the normal reaction of the healthy body to injury. It involves changes to the blood supply to the wound so that molecules and cells of the immune system pass through them so the blood can clot, so starting the attack on infections and allowing the start of healing. So why do we want to reduce the inflammation? Well it is when the system goes wrong such as hypersensitive reactions such as allergic asthma where the body over reacts and cause further damage. Or with rheumatoid arthritis, when the bodies own tissues are attacked, causing a serious degenerative condition. This is usually treated by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as Ibuprofen, but long term use of them can have nasty side effects on the stomach such as indigestion or even bleeding stomach ulcers which can prove fatal in some cases. The properties of AloeVera gels can mean the reduction of the drugs without the stomach problems in these cases. Another very important side effect of AloeVera gel is that it helps increase the fibroblast cell replication. Fibroblast are very important in the healing process as they produce the collagen fibers of the scar tissues which knit wounds together, so the more there are the better.
