Why Aloe Vera Works
Aloe vera is a rich natural source of vitamins, minerals, glycosaminoglycans, and a multitude of trace elements, including:
Pain-blocking properties: barbalois, isobarbaloin, bradykinase, lupeol, salicylic acid, and magnesium.
Inflammation-fighting polysaccharides and fatty acids: acemannan, campesterol, b-sitosterol, and other plant sterols.
The plant produces at least six antiseptic agents: lupeol, salicylic acid, urea nitrogen, cinnamonic acid, phenols, and sulfur. All of these substances are recognized as antimicrobials, which explains why Aloe may eliminate many internal and external infections.
Vitamins and minerals: B1, B2, C, magnesium, calcium, zinc, and many other nutrients, which are the building blocks for healthy cells and bodily functions.
Aloe vera contains at least three anti-inflammatory fatty acids (cholesterol, campesterol, and B-sitosterol, all of which are plant sterols).
If the SYNERGISTIC RELATIONSHIP between the elements found in the plant's sap, its gel, and throughout the entire plant does not explain why Aloe works, then nothing does! All of which explains why for ages lay persons and physicians alike have proclaimed that Aloe vera truly deserves the name "Medicine Plant".
