Aloe Vera is one of the most effective plants for the treatment of many diseases. Originally from South Africa and the Mediterranean, Aloe Vera grows wild in the tropics, on several continents. Its average size is 2 to 3 meters and can reach 6 meters exceptionally.
Its leaves contain a clear gel, which is used primarily to treat wounds and burns. However, this plant, used for over 3000 years, has many other medicinal properties.
Especially the Aloe Vera gel. This is why we can speak of softening of Aloe. This gel contains aloin A and B. It is also rich in organic fatty acids, vitamins, thiamine, resin and many minerals.
Aloe Vera is useful in the following cases:
- Impaired immune system
- Digestive problems
- Radiation Exposure
- Skin problems
- Some cancers
Wounds, burns, skin care in general:
Several studies have confirmed the efficacy of Aloe Vera to quickly heal wounds and burns of the first and second degree. Another study confirms that Aloe soothes the itching caused by skin irritation. In addition to quickly heal the wounds, Aloe also prevents infection fighting bacteria effectively. According to other scientific studies, Aloe eliminate fungi (Candida albicans) infections responsible for the vaginal flora.
Effective against the effects of radiation:
Aloe Vera gel for external use favorably treat the burns caused by X-rays. A study of Hoshi University in Japan and which was published in the journal Yakugaku Zasshi have found that Aloe has a very effective antioxidant to fight against free radicals caused by radiation, it would also protect certain substances in the body, including glutathione, involved in the functioning of the body's immune system.
Commonalities with Ginseng, Garlic and Shitake:
Aloe Vera contains germanium, a chemical that is also present in ginseng, shitake and garlic plants known for their medicinal properties and particularly to stimulate the immune system. One study showed that germanium has an anti-respiratory syncytial virus by acting on the adsorption and penetration of this virus. It could also counteract the mutagenic effect of certain substances (in the form of germanium dioxide), it could oppose the development of certain cancers, and as spirogermanium (a form of organic germanium), destroy some cancer cells.
Aloe Vera gel has healing properties and contributes advantageously in the treatment of ulcers of the stomach and duodenum. Aloe not only promotes healing but also helps reduce pain, disinfect and regulate gastric acid secretions. Aloe gel is also useful to correct the problem with irritable bowel.
Aloe Vera have great laxative properties. These substances are also present in other plant laxatives such as senna, rhubarb or cascara sagrada. However, it seems that the effect of Aloe is more pronounced and therefore requires the utmost care to use.
Other possible uses of Aloe Vera:
Some laboratory tests on a chemical compound of Aloe Vera, have shown promise in the treatment of leukemia. Another study conducted in Europe, on animals and humans with diabetes, showed that Aloe gel reduces blood glucose. In this study the gel was used exclusively in external applications.
Another study was conducted by the Hormone Research, of 5 diabetic over 14 weeks. Daily intake of half a spoon of Aloe gel has reduced by 45% glucose levels, in all patients, without alteration of the weight.
Aloe Vera could also be useful in type II diabetes and certain cancers.
Aloe Vera plant is easy to cultivate at home. Gel is extracted from the plant by making a large incision in the longitudinal direction, preferably by choosing an older leaf of the plant. The gel will flow easily. The leaf will heal quickly.
