ALOE VERA (Aloe Barbadensis) or SABILA is one of nature’s true wonderful blessings. From its name Aloe, which is the plant in its ancient Arabic form, and Vera, being true or genuine in Latin, this plant boasts of endless benefits for our overall well-being.
The clear gel enclosed within its bulging sword-like leaves contains Vitamins A, B, C, E, Calcium, 19 Amino Acids for muscle tissue and protein building, 8 Enzymes that improve the digestive system, Hormones to stimulate cell-regeneration and blood flow, and substances with anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.
Herbal healers prescribe it in topical and internal uses. Topically or when applied on the skin, the gel aids in treating baldness, skin problems, acne, eczema, cuts and wounds, mild burns, insect bites, Athlete’s foot and arthritis. Internally, it is known to treat diabetes, indigestion, heart problems, kidney, and the reproductive system.
Ancient civilizations have been recorded to take credit from being Aloe Vera’s pioneer supporters. It has been written in the Bible that Jesus Christ was anointed with a “bitter herb” (Aloe) before being placed inside the tomb. In Ancient Egypt, Aloe was called “the Plant of Immortality” because of its protein substance, thus it was offered as a funerary gift to the pharaohs, prescribed as a cure for fever, and as it is legendarily known, the natural moisturizer of Cleopatra. The American Indians, on the other hand, referred to it as “the Wand of Heaven”, for the same belief that it cures skin disorders.
