Other Aloe Vera Information and Facts

Quite a bit of interesting aloe vera information and facts are available based on existing documentation and literature.

While most botanists agree and historical evidence suggests that aloe vera plants originated in the warm, dry climates of Africa, it is a readily adaptable plant. Because Man has been so eager to carry it with him from place to place, it now can be found in many other warm lands. In the United States, it is grown commercially in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, in California and Florida, and in specially designed greenhouses in Oklahoma.

Although aloe vera is a tropical plant, the root can survive freezing air temperatures, so long as the ground is not frozen and the root destroyed.

A note about Other Aloe Vera Information and Facts

Herbs are God and nature's gifts to us. While the use of herbs and herb remedies has brought excellent results for many people, do note that their health benefits may be limited when they are used in isolation. However, when combined with some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition, the impact on one's health will be greatly magnified.

In natural health and healing, we believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases. We also believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man’s understanding. It is thus a good idea to apply these fundamental health steps no matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem.

Chinese "Materia Medicas" records the first use of aloe vera in China. Chinese referred to the plant as Lu-hui, meaning "black deposit," or "Hsiang-tqan", referring to the bitter taste of aloe vera. It also notes aloe vera's value as a sinus treatment and as a remedy for fever and convulsions in children.

It is safe to conclude that there are multiple and effective health benefits of aloe vera irrespective of it being used as gel, juice, capsules, tablets, etc, and that it plays a key role in healing and curing various ailments.

This is partly because, based on available aloe vera information, the plant produces at least 6 antiseptic agents: Lupeol, salicylic acid, urea nitrogen, cinnamonic acid, phenols, and sulphur. All of these substances are recognized as antiseptics because they kill or control mold, bacteria, fungus, and viruses, explaining why aloe vera has the ability to eliminate many internal and external infections. The Lupeol and salicylic acid in the juice explains its effectiveness as a painkiller.

Another very good reason why the aloe vera plant is referred to as a medicinal plant is because it contains at least three anti-inflammatory fatty acids, cholesterol, campersterol and B-sitosterol (plant sterols) which explains its ability to effectively treat burns, cuts, scrapes, abrasions, allergic reactions, rheumatoid arthritis, rheumatic fever, acid indigestion, ulcers, plus many inflammatory conditions of the digestive system and other internal organs, including the stomach, small intestine, colon, liver, kidney, and pancreas.

B-sitosterol is also a powerful anti-cholestromatic, which helps to lower harmful cholesterol levels, thereby explaining its many benefits for heart patients.

Further aloe vera information points that its juice contains at least 23 polypeptides (immune stimulators), which is mainly why aloe vera juice helps control a broad spectrum of immune system diseases and disorders, including HIV and AIDS. The polypeptides, plus the anti-tumor agents Aloe emodin and Aloe lectins, explain its ability to control cancer.

The unmatched ability of the aloe vera plant to treat and effectively cure multiple complex human conditions in its various avatars from time immemorial as well as the variety of health benefits of aloe vera mean it richly deserves to be called the "Medicine Plant".
