Wednesday, 09 Mar 2011 04:55 PM

Aloe vera leaves contain a large number of nutrients and beneficial compounds, including minerals, amino acids, and vitamins. The additional benefits of aloe vera include:
It fights allergies.
Aloe Vera supports a healthy respiratory system by ensuring clear airway passages, stabilizing mast cells, and neutralizing free radicals. Aloe Vera gel contains all the natural ingredients you need to battle allergies.
It clears skin.
Aloe vera is a very effective herb for all types of skin problems. It heals pimples, and works as an antiseptic for cuts, burns, psoriasis, shingles, itching, and similar skin conditions. The antiseptic property of aloe vera helps it penetrate several layers of tissue and allows it to break down and digest dead cells. With its anti-inflammatory properties, it anesthetizes the tissues and alleviates pain.
It heals wounds.
The fleshy leaves of the aloe vera plant contain a medicinal gel that has been used for centuries to help heal wounds, soothe burns, and reduce inflammation caused by minor irritants. Ingredients like gibberellins and polysaccharides effectively decrease inflammation and promote wound healing. The lignin penetrates the skin and carries the healing effect into the tissues, helping reduce scar tissue.
It relieves Irritable Bowel Symptoms.
Aloe vera treats irritable bowel symptoms, a gastrointestinal condition characterized by pain, diarrhea, and constipation. Aloe vera is a natural substance and can gently correct intestinal tract problems that may cause irritable bowel and other intestinal disorders.
It is an anti-diabetic.
Research has shown the significant effect aloe vera has on diabetics. The herb helps treat diabetes by stimulating the pancreas, which allows it to secrete insulin.
It helps improve heart ailments.
Cardiac patients treated with aloe vera experience positive improvements as early as the second week of use. Within a period of three months, patients began to notice the chest pain associated with heart disease begin to disappear. Their electrocardiogram results were also positively affected.
It is good for children.
Children generally respond well to the use of aloe vera. Aloe vera is used in baby oil and is considered an effective medicine for children suffering from eczema and sun burns.
