Aloe vera as nature's curative. What comes to mind about this? Allthough we have all probably heard some mention of Aloe vera, how many of us know what it is and what it can do? Even though Aloe vera leaves are revered in India, how many of us know about the uses they are put to? How many more scientific discoveries about Aloe vera have happened in recent times?

Even though aloe vera is widely renowned for its detox potency in cleaning the human body and its powers to heal skin inflammation besides its use in skin care products to restore that radiant complexion, there are many more uses of the aloe vera leaf than this. For centuries, village doctors in the Indian sub-continent or North Africa or the Arabian peninsula knew about the secrets of this remarkable desert plant which is related to the Cactus family.

If practitioners of complementary medicine using aloe vera were viewed with suspicion, this is no longer the case. However, for aloe vera to be productive it is far better administered in its raw leaf form rather than the diluted pharmaceutical products with extracts of aloe in insufficient quantities. In its native form, there are over 100 bioflavonoid compounds stored in ther complex leaf structure besides over 70 diverse nutrients in addition to 22 essential minerals and vitamins as well as 19 essential amino acids essential for human life.

Another secret to aloe vera is the innate abundance of polysaccharides throughout each leaf. Once these are chewed and consumed, they are gradually broken down into long chains of carbohydrates which then directly become absorbed into our cells. As such they provide direct nutrition to our cells and boost the energy production of the body. For those who directly chew a handful of leaves throughout the day, there is an extra energy source.

Having briefly mentioned detox, we should refer to the fact that aloe vera is the natural cleaner of the body because when consumed in liquid form if literally flushes fecal residue and waste stored in the colon and the liver which often escapes through microscopic holes in the large intestine lining into the bloodstream and skin where it leads to leaky gut syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, ecema, psoriasis. If you consume aloe vera at least twice per day as part of your dietary regime, you will clean the toxin build up. Besides this you also boost anti-oxidation to completely eliminate free radical toxins.

Indeed, aloe vera leaves are consumed in handfuls by many workers in India to relieve the effects of hunger and to benefit their digestion. When many of them succumb to fever, the leaves of the aloe vera plant alleviate the high temperatures. In times of indigestion, aloe vera is consumed and works remarkably effectively.

From the raw leaves to gel extracts to liquid juice, aloe vera has remarkable effects. Prophenols and isoflavonoids heal the wear and tear in the skin by boosting the skin with an abundance of essential nutrients while all the time hydrating the skin. Eczema, acne, dermatitis can all be greatly alleviated by constant and steady application of aloe vera.

During time of high pollen activity, when there are rhinitis symptoms associated with allergic reactions aloe vera can be consumed to soothe the release of antibodies throughout the body. Aloe vera is known to be able to regulate the body's metabolism so it can slow down the rush release of anti-histamines.

Doctors and dentists in India have for centuries known how to apply aloe vera. Now that some of this ayurvedic medicine knowledge has been learned elsewhere we can learn the benefits of aloe vera. With the onset of cataracts, many patients have had their condition slowed by the use of aloe vera. During dental operations, bleeding gums are often alleviated by the application of aloe vera. With such practises common in India, scientific research on this plant has been continued in the West.

Some of the conditions aloe vera leaves are used to fight off in the Middle East, North Africa, Indian sub-continent include tuberculosis, haemorrhoids, ulcers, bronchitis, high blood pressure, pancreatis. How raw aloe works to relieve these conditions has been the subject of intense scientific research as even though the scientific properties of the aloe vera are understood, not all the genetic aspects of this miracle of nature are as yet understood.

If there is one fundamental benefit among the many benefits of aloe vera, it has to be that aloe accelerates the rate of nutrient absorption and increase the rate of the metabolism. As the human body resembles an engine with food being broken down into vitamins, minerals and then into nutrients the fuel to produce our energy released from our cells, aloe vera provides all we need.
