Hi Shikha, I specialise in the benefits of using Aloe Vera health products! The key is to use a natural stabilised Aloe form of which Forever Living products produce the purist, stabilised Aloe Barbadensis miller on the market today! In their Aloe, there are 75 compounds of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and proteins which have an amazing benefit of a general health tonic. It's fantastic for anyone and especially anyone with skin disorders and anything that ends with "itis" i.e arthritis, diverticulitis... As this is a natural produt it can really help with any concerns although is not a cure. This has amazing benefits for the skin and for more information, visit out website!

The skin replaces itself every 28 days. Aloe Vera supplements can be a rich supply of raw materials to your diet as the skin can use these nutrients daily to help combat the effects of ageing, help the body to cleanse the digestive system and help to increase your energy levels
Aloe Vera juice promotes a healthy
digestive system helps clean out the bowel. When the bowel is cleaned out, it greatly reduces bloating, discomfort, and helps ease stress.
Aloe Vera has a natural anti-inflammatory / bacteria properties, positive effect on the immune system which promote growth of cells which in turn promotes healing.
Hi Shikha,
The word aloe comes from Arabic "alloeh" meaning "bitter and shiny", which, I believe, relates to the plant's healing gel. You can get the idea if you slice a leaf and look at the gel that comes out, if you taste it, it's quite bitter.
Drawings of aloe vera have been found in Egyptian temples dating to 3000 B.C. The plan was also mentioned in the Bible several times, but it's likely that it wasn't aloe vera because in ancient times many bitter resinous plants were called "aloe".
Aloe vera has been known for its medicinal and healing properties since the dawn of history. Egyptian medical writings dated 1500 B.C. recommended it for infections, skin problems and as a laxative.
When Alexander the Great conquered Egypt in 332 B.C., he heard of the plan with amazing healing properties on the island of Somalia. He sent the soldiers to seize the island and get the plant, which turned out to be aloe vera.
Later the plant travelled across Asia to Europe where physicians used it for treating skin problems, intestinal worms, menstrual discomfort, burns and haemorroids.
Aloe vera contains several chemical compounds, bradykinase, salicylic acid and magnesium lactate, that reduce inflammation, swelling and redness of wounds and also help relieve pain and itching.
Aloe works best for superficial wounds. According to the study published in Journal of Dermatology and Surgical Oncolongy, the herb sped the healing of pimples by 3 days compared with standard medication. However, if the wounds are deep, the plan may actually slow down the healing (Journal of Obsterics and Gynaecology).
As a general rule, aloe vera gel may be used on all wounds that do not require stitching.
Aloe vera protects broken skin from getting infected. It may work against several types of bacteria and fungi including E. coli, strains of staphylococcus, streptococcus, salmonella, candida and shigella.
It also supports and boosts the immune system - a strong immune system is essential for fighting infections.
According to the Swedish research, the use of aloe vera cream containing 0.5% gel may lead to substantial clearing of the psoriasis skin patches (83% compared to 6% with use of a medical cream).
Although it is a well-known fact that Cleopatra used aloe vera gel on her skin to make it shiny, it may not be the best idea to rely on commercially produced creams and lotions as many won't provide the fresh herb's skin-enhancing benefits.
Aloe vera juice may be beneficial for people with inflammatory bowel disease. They may also help to kill candida that often causes yeast infections. It also works as a laxative and may control blood sugar levels (although this is yet to be supported by further research).
Aloe gel is safe to use by anyone who is not allergic to it, however it is best to consult a doctor or practitioner before using it and if the wounds do not heal within a couple of weeks it is important to seek medical advice.
You must stay away from any laxatives containing aloe latex. The latex contains laxative compounds called anthraquinones that have a powerful action and can cause cramps and diarrhoea. Among all the plants containing this compounds (senna, cascara sagrada etc) aloe vera is the strongest. If you choose to use aloe vera as a laxative, you must see a nutritional therapy practitioner to pick the right and safest supplement for you.
Pregnant women and those planning pregnancy must not use aloe latex as it may cause uterine contractions and miscarriage. Nursing mothers should also avoid it because the compounds will get into the milk and cause cramps and violent catharsis in babies.
Aloe vera latex may also aggravate ulcers, hemorroids, deverticulitis, IBS and Crohn's disease.

Aloe-Vera is excellent for treating the hair, especially hair loss which is because the vitamins and minerals are similar to our own body chemistry. It is much better conditioner for hair than chemical man made conditioners, if you're have problems with the condition of your hair aloe-vera would help. Trying using chemical free products on your hair and combine with aloe-vera, sit back and see the results.
I hope that this information has been helpful.

Hi Shikha,
Cleopatra, who lived from 68 to 30 B.C. was the first documented user of aloe vera, to protect her skin from the harsh suns rays, and to have thought the gel helped to keep her skin young-looking. The Egyptians may have used the aloe vera extract in embalming of bodies. It has been used world wide for nearly 4,000 years.
It is widely used for the healing of burns. It is also used by cosmetic surgeons who use it after cosmetic invasive procedures such as dermabrasion and chemical facial peels etc. Although it has benefits of healing burns, it is also recognised as a moisturiser for softening the skin. Many people believe that it has healing properties when taken orally for general internal healing.
You can purchase an aloe vera plant and keep it for your own use as and when you need it. You can also purchase it in liquid form from health food outlets and drink the product.
I hope this information has been helpful for you.

Hi there
that is absolutely brilliant, that is why, when I asked my gorgeous looking sister-in-law that does she had facial? She said, no I am using aloe-vera for last 1 week and I thought such a ugly plant, she must be kidding.
