The Aloe Vera supplement: properties and use

THEAloe vera (Aloe Barbadensis Miller), one of the many species of Aloe, is the one most widely used for its large leaves which allow the most precious part to be extracted with greater ease, the clean gel, ie devoid of the bitter and dark part that contains aloin, irritating to the gastric and intestinal mucosa.

Aloe Vera has been used since ancient times for its healing properties, both for topical use, and as supplement for internal use. In North African countries, especially Egypt, it is a remedy that dates back to the mists of time, well known in popular tradition, also charged with symbolic values: it was planted in the gardens in front of the entrance to the houses to signify protection and health for the inhabitants.

Let's see the innumerable qualities of this natural supplement.


Aloe Vera: immunostimulating properties

Aloe Vera gel and juice are rich in polysaccharides, includingacemannano, a mucopolysaccharide from immunostimulating properties: in fact, it stimulates the production of interferon and cytokines, protein molecules that activate the body's defensive responses.

Aloe Vera supports the immune system in this way and in periods of greatest exposure to viral agents, such as autumn and winter, it is useful take it for 6-week cycles.


Aloe Vera: detoxifying properties

Aloe Vera juice also possesses purifying and detoxifying properties of the gastrointestinal system, thanks to the action of polysaccharides which due to their sticky consistency are able to absorb and eliminate toxins present in the stomach and intestines.

The detoxifying action of Aloe Vera also reverberates on skin, nails and hair, which are more hydrated, luminous and strengthened.

Aloe Vera: anti-inflammatory properties

The gastrointestinal system is greatly benefited by the use of Aloe Vera: thanks to its mucilage and the action of polysaccharides, aloe is able to stop heartburn, to rectify the pH of gastric acids, to protect the mucous membranes from ulcerative lesions and to calm spasms.

At the intestinal level, it calms inflammatory states, refreshes the walls and protects them thanks to its mucilage, hydrates the bacterial flora, cushions the stool and promotes transit.


Directions for use

There are many Aloe juices on the market but not all of them are of quality; so let's pay attention to the label. It is good that it is Aloe Vera purified from aloin, which as already mentioned is an anthraquinone irritating to the gastric and intestinal mucous membranes.

We prefer Aloe juice from foliar gel, the quintessence of Aloe obtained from the noblest part of the plant. Remember that once opened the package must be stored in the refrigerator, as it does not contain preservatives and is rapidly degrading. The daily dose is 40 ml.
