Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is an unbelievably valuable and useful plant that
can be used in many different ways. We will tell you about some of them – we’ll explain how it helps, how to grow it, and extract the healing gel-like substance from the plant. We will tell you what you can make from it and explain how it works in cosmetics.
By the way, the native tribes of Latin America believed its miraculous effects come from a goddess who gifts them through sacrifice and prayers. In South America, the juice extracted from Aloe is valued as an elixir of life.
Aloe helps treat immunity system-related diseases, heals burns or hazardous abscesses caused by radiation.  It has significant antihyperglycemic effects and can be useful in the treatment of the type 2 diabetes.
 
The sun-dried juice from aloe leaves, so-called sabur, is used for further processing. Sabur is partially soluble in water, whereas fresh Aloe juice is almost insoluble.
The juice is extracted from older plants which should not be watered for at least a week before we cut the leaves.
The list of active substances contained in Aloe is remarkable. They mainly include the A vitamin, group B vitamins, C and E vitamins, as well as minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, potassium and many more.
 
Aloe Vera has antiviral, antibacterial, antiseptic and antimycotic (antifungal) effects. It improves immunity, purifies, stops bleeding and kills pathogenic germs. In addition, it serves as a pain relief, reduces fever and supports metabolism. The slimy gel extracted from the central parts of Aloe leaves is used to treat sunburns, dry skin, acne and slowly healing wounds.
Its salutary effects can be felt if you suffer from face pains of neuralgic origin, arthritis or rheumatism.  Since it encourages skin metabolism, it may be directly applied on wounds, fungus affected areas of skin and abscesses, and also helps with psoriasis, insect bites, gastric ulcers and asthma.
Aloe has unique properties that help stop the growth of polyps and reduce the growth of haemorrhoids.
Drinking aloe on a daily basis has proved useful for improving immunity
