Aloe Vera is a garden succulent well known as the first aid plant. It has been used medicinally since ancient times. It is mentioned in early Egyptian writings as an effective treatment for infections, skin ailments and constipation. Alexander the Great is said to have fought a war to obtain a supply of this plant for his wounded soldiers. While there are over 200 species of Aloe, the Aloe Barbidensis is perhaps the best known for its medicinal properties and is cultivated commercially for use in a myriad of cosmetic products and for popular Aloe Juices that are rich in enzymes and effective in treating digestive disorders.
Aloe cleans, soothes and heals, making it a popular ingredient in soothing preparations for cuts and burns. It also contains antibiotic properties. It contains properties that promote the removal of dead skin and stimulate the normal growth of living cells, which can stop pain and reduce the chance of infection and scarring while helping the healing process.
The gel-like juice of the Aloe Vera is well known for its use for intestinal ailments and colon cleansing, and reputedly can help restore the bowels to normal functioning. Modem clinical use of this gel began in the 1930's with the successful treatment of x-ray and radium bums. Aloe Vera has maintained its reputation for healing internal tissues damaged by radiation exposure, such as x-rays and radiation.
Aloe contains polysaccharides. Over the last two decades, Japanese scientists in particular have shown that polysaccharides resemble natural parts of the cell walls of bacteria, and therefore can stimulate an immune response in people. In Russia, extensive studies have shown the effectiveness of Aloe Vera in removing toxins from the body and in acting as a nonspecific booster of the immune system. Modern technology now offers Aloe Vera in a variety of forms, from the fresh juice to an array of concentrates that make Aloe Vera convenient to use as a daily tonic.
