ALOE VERA (Aloe barbadensis)

Aloe vera is also known as aloe, the burn plant, the lily of the desert and as elephant's gall. The Aloe vera plant is a member of the Lily family. The use of Aloe vera dates back to the ancient Egyptians who knew it as the "plant of immortality".

Today many people grow one or two small aloe vera plants in their homes to have the healing Aloe vera gel readily available. The gel from the inside of a cut leaf is ready to use as an ointment or supplement.

Benefits and uses:
Aloe vera is an excellent source of nutrients. It contains over 200 nutritional compounds, including 20 minerals, 18 amino acids and 12 vitamins, including vitamin B12, anthraquinones, enzymes, minerals,lignins, monosaccharide, polysaccharides, salicylic acid, saponins, and sterols.

The most important use of Aloe vera is in skin care. It's found in countless skin lotions and sunblocks. Topically, aloe gel helps soothe dry skin, and promotes healing of burns (including sun burns) and abrasions. It can be applied straight from the plant without any processing.

Internally, Aloe vera is said to aid with coughs, wounds, ulcers, diabetes, cancer, headaches, arthritis and immune system deficiencies, but non of the claims have been substantiated.
The only proven oral use is as a laxative to aid with constipation.

Cautions: Use of topical aloe vera is not associated with significant side effects. Internally the laxative effect of Aloe vera can lower the absorption of many drugs.
For Diabetics, studies show internal use may lower blood glucose levels.

Lastly, never take Aloe Vera intravenously, it can lead to death. Injection of aloe vera is illegal in the United States, but in desperation, people have gone to other less regulated countries for unproven cancer treatments involving injections.
