Aloe vera has been known and used for its therapuetic effects for thousands of years. The name aloe comes from the Arabic word alloeh which translates as „bitter and shiny substance“. The term vera comes from the Latin word for „truth“. It is clear from the name that aloe is not just another ordinary plant. It has historically played a rather important role in ancient India and China, from where it originated. The ancient Greeks, Romans and Babylonians were also fond of it, placing sheets of the leaves of this beneficial plant on their burnt or otherwise irritated skin. On the basis of its observed effects, aloe has become part of traditional and folk medicine, for its range of known pysiological and imuno-modulatory properties. In recent years, aloe vera products have gained a remarkable position in the dietary supplement market. The biologically active substances contained in the aloe pulp itself have been the subject of many scientific studies.
Origin and cultivation
Aloe is a perennial succulent plant, resembling a cactus in appearance. It thrives especially in arid regions, where its fleshy leaves and large stature make it not easy to miss. The inner part of the leaf, or the flesh, is considered the most valuable, as it contains biologically active substances and water-holding components that are beneficial to the body. The bound water, together with the other substances it contains, gives the pulp its characteristic gel-like consistency. The outer part of the leaf, the cuticle, prevents the loss of bound water, making the aloe a dry, resistant plant. The starting material for the production of the resulting powder is the gel-like pulp, which is obtained exclusively from healthy, ripe and freshly harvested leaves. The extracted pulp is then gently dried into the final product.
Composition and properties
Depending on the rich range of enzymes, vitamins, minerals and other biologically active substances, aloe vera powder is associated with numerous beneficial effects. The naturally occurring antioxidants help to „quench“ free radicals. The photochemicals present in this plant are considered to be another benefit.
