The Aloe Vera plant has been known for its healing properties throughout history. Of the some 350 varieties true aloe or Aloe Barbadensis Miller is medically the most powerful. Known by some as “The Healing Plant”, “Medicine Plant”, “Silent Healer” and “Burn Plant”, Aloe is known to work on two main areas of the body. Firstly on body surfaces and membranes, the epithelial tissue and secondly on the immune system. It contains more than 75 ingredients, all of which are important for health and wellbeing. There is a very high content of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, sugars, plant sterols and other elements that together have a synergistic action. Together these things are in perfect balance and relatively small amounts can be beneficial taken as a drinking Gel or applied topically.
Aloe is known to help boost the immune system and aid immune disorders with its powerful anti inflammatory, anti fungal, anti bacterial and anti viral properties. It has been used to help a variety of skin conditions and has been known to help digestive disorders when taken as a drink.
Aloe Vera products can be safely used to help animals. It can be used topically for inflammatory skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema, abscesses, boils, infected insect bites, rubs and abrasions. Can also be used for wounds, ulcers an burns, to speed the bodes own healing response and minimise scarring. Given in the animals feed it can help boost the immune system, provide essential nutrients, help fight fatigue after viral infections or for horses that are competing it can help with energy levels.
