Aloe Vera belongs to the Lily family. It is a succulent that looks a very much like a cactus and is referred to by different names, for example, the burnt plant, the miracle plant, the natural healer and the medicine plant. Despite the fact that there are in excess of two hundred species of Aloe Vera, just a couple have therapeutic properties, and of these Aloe Vera Barbadensis is the most advantageous.

The Aloe Vera plant achieves full growth at around four years old. The external leaf is even and inside is the gel and sap which is harvested, conserved and packaged to give either a juice or when joined with different ingredients creams, moisturizers, and gels. Around 96% of the plant is water. The rest is composed of minerals, for example, magnesium, zinc, copper, chromium and the cancer prevention agent selenium, vitamins including the antioxidants C, E and beta-carotene, 20 of the 22 amino acids required by the body including 7 of the 8 that can't be produced by the body, sugars, enzymes and fatty acids. The mix of these components has a more strong impact together than they would independently. This is on the grounds that each improves the impact of the other, an effect that is known as synergism. 

Aloe Vera works in two discrete areas; by nourishing, repairing or preventing injury to the epithelial tissues (the skin, the coating of the gut, the bronchial tubes, and so on) and by balancing the immune system when its cancer prevention agents battle the free radicals produced by our metabolism and pollutants in environment. 

When taken inside, Aloe Vera is relieving to digestive tract irritations, for example, colitis and peptic ulcers. The anti-inflammatory fatty acids are likewise useful for the stomach, small intestine digestive system and colon. It alkalizes the stomach related juices preventing over acidity – a typical reason for indigestion. Among the numerous different diseases that have been helped by Aloe Vera are diverticulitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, constipation, and hemorrhoids. Conditions that are enhanced by balancing the immune system are arthritis or joint inflammation, asthma, ME (post viral weakness disorder) and LE (lupus). 

When applied to the skin Aloe Vera improves a broad combination of skin complaints, for example, eczema, psoriasis, ulcers, burns, stings, acne, bites, scrapes, abrasions,, scalp care, sore muscles, mouth blisters, bruises, sprains, and frostbite to give some examples! 

Later studies indicate Aloe Vera can help prolong survival time and stimulate the immune system of cancer patients. This is mostly by battling free radicals with its antioxidant properties and furthermore by stimulating the white blood cells causing the release of immune-activating and anticancer substances, for example, interferons, interleukins and tumor necrosis factor. These properties of Aloe Vera have additionally made it an effective part of a nutrition support program for HIV patients; prompting fewer events of infections, for example, thrush, weakness and diarrhea and an increase in the number of white platelets meaning a boost to their immune system.
