Top 10 reasons to use pure aloe vera

Updated on April 6, 2015

The aloe vera plant is often referred to as the silent healer. It supports our internal and external health improving it gradually. Sometimes the improvements are so gradual that we hardly notice them unless we keep a journal. On the other hand we can have a positive experience in a matter of days. It all depends a little bit on the condition and on the person itself as we are all unique and everybody responds differently, especially to nature’s own medicine garden.

The aloe vera plant has been in existence for thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians often referred to this ancient desert lily as the blood of god. Its diversity was already discovered back then. The gel of the aloe vera plant leaf was used for embalming the dead. It was mixed with aother ancient oils and applied to the skin to enhance its cosmetic beauty. Last but not least it was taken internally to maintain optimum health and to fight intestinal problems. The Egyptians weren’t the only people that believed in the healing power of the aloe vera plant. Many civilations that followed had used this natural healing plant for different reasons.

Thanks to modern technology and medical research the aloe vera plant has gained in popularity as not only a typical sunburn remedy but as a natural plant able to bring back balance to our internal and external health. While there are many reasons we should consider the regular use of aloe vera juice and gel, I have listed the top ten reasons why we could use aloe vera gel. Understanding the healing powers of this ancient desert beauty could help someone you know or help your family overcome certain agonizing conditions.

Number 1: Fast sunburn relief

Aloe Vera Gel is really the one and only after sun lotion you will ever need. It moisturizes sunburnt tissue while cooling down the tissue. The many active healing compounds found in pure aloe vera gel go right to work in rejuvenating the skin healing sunburn tissue much faster than any other store-bought moisturizing lotion. Aloe Vera Gel goes through all seven layers of the skin activating healing from deep within the skin.

Number 2: Anti-Aging out of a leaf

Aloe Vera Gel has been found to increase the production of fibroblast cells. Fibroblast cells are found within the dermis of the skin. They produce collagen and elastin. The less collagen our body produces the more visible wrinkles become. Daily applications of pure aloe vera gel can increase the production of collagen.

Number 3: Dental Care

Aloe Vera tooth paste is a wonderful alternative to very synthetic tooth pastes found on the market today. It doesn’t contain fluoride but has shown to be just as effective in fighting cavities. It is very gentle and perfect for people with sensitive gums and teeth. Gentle enough for children as well.

Number 4: Relief from eczema

Pure aloe vera gel can be applied to your skin if you are suffering from eczema. But since eczema aren’t necessarily an external health condition but something that originates from the inside and makes itself visible on the outside, we can double the effect by not only applying the pure gel onto our skin but by drinking pure aloe vera juice on a daily basis. It encourages cleansing reducing the severity of eczema.

Number 5: Highly nutritious

Pure aloe vera juice is loaded with life-important minerals and vitamins such as Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B6 and even B12, a vitamin which we usually get from eating meat. Furthmore aloe vera contains vitamin C, folic acid, choline, calcium, magnesium, zinc, manganese, chromium, selenium, copper, iron, potassium, phosphorus, sodium.

Number 6: Life-important amino acids

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and very important to our health, especially our brain health. The body knows how to produce some of those required amino acids but eight of the essential amino acids are dependent on outside influences such as our diet. Pure aloe vera juice can provide us with the essential amino acids such as alanine, arginine, glutamic acid, histidine, just to mention a few.

Number 7: Contains all important enzymes

Enzymes are also an essential must have in our diets as they break down proteins into amino acids so every cell in the body can receive nutrition (fuel) and work optimally.

Number 8: Improves arthritic conditions

Pure aloe vera juice has a lubricating effect on joints. While the cleansing ability of aloe vera removes build-up around joints increasing flexibility, it also lubricates the joints delaying the onset of painful arthritis.

Number 9: Enhances immune system functions manyfolds

Pure aloe vera juice is one of the most effective immune system enhancer. It increases macrophage and T-lyphocyte acitivy manyfolds giving the body lots of strength to fight foreign invadors. This is believed due to a very important compound found in aloe vera juice, a sugar molecule known as Acemannan. It has even shown to protect the bone marrow from potential damage done through toxic chemicals. Some hiv tests even confirmed an improvement with the regular use of pure aloe vera.

Number 10: Releases toxins attached to tissue

Pure aloe vera juice also has a very cleansing effect on the body. Its power compound acemannan improves cell membrane functioning by increasing fluidity and permeability. This encourages the removal of toxins. With less toxins attached to tissue, more nutrition can be absorbed and aid in the overall function of the body. This also improves digestive functions and can affect conditions of the digestive system positively.
