Welcome to the wonderful world of Aloe Vera!
Aloe Vera is one of the most nutrient-dense plants on the planet. It has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. It can heal the body from such ailments as inflammation, arthritis, IBS, unstable blood sugar, high cholesterol, and more.
Read on to find out what it’s capable of and how.
The “magic” of Aloe is in its chemical composition which includes:
Vitamins: A, C, E, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, and B12, folic acid, and choline. Vitamins A, C and E are antioxidants that rid the body of cancer-causing, body-aging free radicals.
Minerals: copper (important for red blood cells, skin) iron (involved in oxygen transportation), potassium (helps with fluid balance), phosphorus (helps build bones and teeth), and sodium (helps with nerve and muscle performance, and delivering nutrients into your cells). It also contains others like; calcium, magnesium, zinc, chromium, selenium, and manganese.
Amino Acids:Humans require 22 amino acids. The body produces all except for the eight essentials that we get from food and drinks. Every one of the essential amino acids are available in Aloe vera and they include: Amylase (breaks down sugars and starches), Bradykinase (stimulates immune system, anti-inflammatory), Catalase, Cellulase (aids digestion), Lipase (aids digestion of fats), Oxidase, Alkaline Phosphatase, Proteolytiase, Creatine Phosphokinase (aids metabolism), and Carboxypeptidase.”
Polysaccharides: These are something extra special in Aloe Vera, and the polysaccharide that catches researchers’ eyes is acemannan. Acemannan is known for its ability to restore and boost the immune system by stimulating the production of macrophages and improving the activity of T-Lymphocytes (immune cells) by up to 50%! Acemannan produces immune agents which help to destroy viruses, bacteria, and tumor cells!
