Aloe Vera | A Wonder Herb | Benefits And Uses

Aloe Vera is a herb that is mainly grown in the arid regions of Africa, Asia, Europe and America.

Despite its cactus-like appearance, Aloe vera belongs to the lily family, which also includes plants like  asparagus, onions, leeks and garlic.

Because of its numerous therapeutic benefits, it is grown on a large commercial scale in the United States, Japan, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. 

However, you can also grow your own Aloe vera in pots as household plants.

The Aloe vera plant contains over thirty enzymes, including lipase and oxidase. It can be argued that due to the change in our modern diets, enzymes are a major element missing in the foods we eat since a large percentage of the adult population reports having suffered from a  digestive ailment (enzyme driven process).

Aloe vera also contains significant levels of salicylic acid (the active ingredient in aspirin) which accounts for varied levels of pain relief. 

Some people have reported experiencing a pain sensation like the explosion of a fire spray on the skin when a gel or cream is applied to sensitive skin.

Salicylic acid also plays a role in  Aloe vera's toxin cleansing capacity. 

Various research findings have reported Aloe vera's ability to stimulate the immune system. 

Other people have testified that drinking a fluid that contains high quality Aloe vera juice daily helps to clear sensitive skin. 

Aloe is also known as a soothing ingredient in many skin care lotions, moisturizers, shampoos and other body products.

There are a number of studies worldwide documenting the health benefits of Aloe vera, when taken either internally or when used topically.
