Aloe Vera Benefits:
The gel of raw Aloe vera contains vitamins A, C, and E, the minerals sulfur, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, and chromium, as well as antioxidants, fiber, amino acids, enzymes, sterols, lignins, and most importantly, polysaccharides.
Aloe’s polysaccharides have a particular lubricating effect on the joints, brain, nervous system, and the skin. These polysaccharides are long burning carbohydrates and provide steady energy over time.
Alove vera polysaccharides have immune modulating effects. They allow the human immune system to fight back chronic viral, nanobacteria, and fungal infections.
Aloe vera is a crucial part of any weight loss and fitness program as it has been shown that when you ingest Aloe, you can lose weight and also gain lean muscle mass.
If you want to be beautiful all the days of your life, if you want to be flexible and limber all the days of your life, if you want to have an immune system and nervous system that work well for all the days of your life, Aloe vera is the superfood for you.
Creating Digestive Wellness with Aloe’s Antimicrobial Properties:
Aloe vera is helpful for all types of digestive problems and can aid in recovery from digestive illnesses, such as colitis, ulcers, and irritable bowel syndrome. Research suggests that Aloe vera polysaccharides are responsible for the calming effects on digestion. Additionally, Aloe’s ability to support the replication of healthy epithelial cells that line our inner digestive environment is well known.
Aloe vera cuts and dissolves mucus in the intestines, which helps increase nutrient absorption.
Aloe’s mannose polysaccharide is effective at killing yeast (candida). In clinical human research, acemannan (mannose chains) from Aloe improved food digestion and absorption and enhanced the presence of friendly bacteria (probiotics such as Acidophilus) in the digestive tract by reducing yeast and normalizing ph levels. Aloe acts as a prebiotic – this means it potentiates the effectiveness of probiotics such as Acidophilus, bifidus, L. salivarius, L. plantarum, etc.; it makes them work better.
The polysaccharides in Aloe vera are converted by the human body into oligosaccharides, which protect the mucosal lining of the digestive tract and have been shown to be effective in fighting back the following organisms:
Bordetella pertussis (whooping cough pathogen)
E. coli strains
Individuals with Crohn’s disease have been found to be deficient in oligosaccharides ion their digestive system.
Topical Applications: Healing the Skin:
Aloe has been used topically to treat the following:
Arthritis – joint relief may be experienced by simple topical application
Insect bites & stings
Poison ivy & oak
Skin allergies, cancer, & infections
In my experience, the key in treating the skin topically with Aloe vera appears to be keeping the Aloe gel on the area for several hours each day, as opposed to just rubbing the gel on or using a lotion.
In both animals and humans, Aloe vera’s ability to heal and even prevent skin damage has been extensively researched and proven. Slabs of fresh Aloe vera gel can be applied and left directly on sunburns, skin cancer, eczema, and psoriasis for several hours with positive effects.
What to Look For… Aloe Vera Product Types:
Aloe vera leaves are usually a foot or two in length and dull green in color. They have a succulent texture and are rich with gel inside. Aloe gel can taste bitter or it can have hardly any taste at all.
When purchasing Aloe vera look for the following characteristics:
1. Purchase organic [or sustainably grown] Aloe vera
2. Select fresh Aloe vera leaves in preference to bottle Aloe vera. Only fresh Aloe vera maintains the strong antifungal components that Aloe contains. Bottle Aloe vera should at least be enzymatically “stabilized”. Typically the healing polysaccharide we know as mannose in Aloe vera is destroyed by processing.
3. Select Aloe leaves that are thick with gel and free of white speckles. Generally, the Aloe variety with no white speckles in the leaf is superior to the ones with them.
Below is a list of Aloe vera products to look for on the internet or in your health food store or supplement shop.
Whole Aloe vera leaves: Fresh Aloe vera gel is superior to all other forms of Aloe. It is more potent; its antifungal enzymes are still intact, and it has better flavor.
- Bottled Aloe vera gel
- Dried Aloe vera powder
- Acemannan (mannose extract)
- Aloe vera alcohol tinctures
- Aloe vera lotions (some exceptional formulas also contain MSM)
How to Use Aloe Vera:
The gel of raw, fresh Aloe vera has a mild, slightly bitter flavor due to the presence of high concentrations of polysaccharides.
Aloe vera is best when filleted. Cut the portion you desire to eat from the Aloe leaf, remove the thorns on either side, and separate the gel from the skin with your knife.
Once the gel is removed from the inner leaf, it may be combined with other foods in smoothies, elixirs, salads, other food preparations. Aloe vera combines well with high antioxidant foods and superfoods like bee pollen, goji berries, fresh noni, and raw chocolate in all types of recipes, and it has a synergistic effect with whole food, antioxidant rich, green superfood formulas such as … [Healthforce Nutritional’s Vitamineral Green] … and Pure Synergy®. Try mixing tiny cubes of raw Aloe vera gel into a salsa, or blend up pieces of the raw gel into soups, spreads, and dips (yes, the gel can be cubed). Add the benefits of this traditional healing food to any raw dish you can imagine!
Once the gel has been removed and filleted from the outer leaf, the thin gel remaining on the inner surface of the leaf may be applied to the skin as a moisturizing lotion, or as a soothing relief from minor burns.
Aloe vera leaves keep best when left in a bowl in indirect light at room temperature (not in the refrigerator).
Warning: Due to its strong effects in cleansing the liver, pregnant women and young children should not take Aloe vera internally.
Aloe vera has tremendous topical applications for burns and chronic skin challenges. The key to using Aloe vera effectively is exposing the gel by removing the skin and then placing the gel on the affected area for several hours without removing it. Simply rubbing Aloe briefly on an area will not be effective.
Athlete’s Foot and Foot Fungus:
Most forms of foot fungus can be overcome by removing the Aloe skin and blending the fresh inner gel with spring water into a slurry, then pouring the slurry into a bucket and soaking one’s feet in the bucket for several hours a day for six weeks.”*
