There are rarely people who haven’t heard about the amazing plant Aloe Vera, known as the “immortality plant” in ancient Egypt, and “a heaven wand” among the Native Americans.
This plant is the fastest and most effective remedy in the case of some small emergencies like burns, and cuts, but aloe Vera is also extremely helpful if taken internally.
It has over 200 biologically active phytochemicals like enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, polysaccharides, and minerals that promote nutrient absorption.
The Journal of Environmental Science and Health studies wrote that it has strong antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial properties, which help the immune system to cleanse the toxins and pathogens.
Here is a nutritional profile of this herb:
Aloe Vera contains some crucial enzymes such as amylase and lipase which help digestion by breaking down fat and sugar molecules and in particular Bradykinase, which reduces inflammation.
Aloe Vera is rich in vitamin B12 which is needed for the production of red blood cells. It is also high in vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, E, C, B6, choline, and folic acid.
- Amino acids
Aloe Vera contains 20 of the 22 crucial amino acids in the body, as well as salicylic acid (which is the natural alternative to Aspirin), that battles inflammation and bacteria.
Aloe Vera is loaded with minerals, including iron, copper, potassium, zinc, potassium, calcium, selenium, chromium, magnesium, sodium, manganese, which together improve the metabolic pathways.
