When the body gets what it needs, it then has the opportunity to address its health challenges.
Aloe Vera is nature’s gift.... Aloe vera is a rich source of over two hundred naturally occurring nutritional substances. The aloe leaf contains over 200 compounds, including 20 minerals, 18 amino acids, and 12 vitamins. Health benefits of aloe vera maintains a healthy digestive system and a healthy energy level.
Benefits of Aloe Vera Properties include:
Amino Acids - the building blocks of proteins. The human body requires 22 amino acids for metabolism but the body can only make 12 of them. Aloe Vera provides 20 of them. More importantly, it provides the 18 essential amino acids, that cannot be manufactured by the body and which therefore have to be consumed as food.
Vitamins – Aloe Vera contains a wide range of vitamins - A, B, C, E and Folic Acid. The most important ones are the antioxidant Vitamins C and E and Beta-Carotene, the precursor of Vitamin A.
It is also one of the few plants in the world that contains most of the B Vitamins. B1, B2, B4, B6, and Vitamin B12. The Vitamin B's are a very important stress regulator for the body. Like vitamin C they are water soluble so they need to be ingested daily.
Our skin is the front-line defense in our daily fight against pollution and other environmental irritants, so we need to protect and reinforce it with extra care. Aloe vera as a natural remedy is to soothe the skin. I use aloe vera moisturing lotion.

Aloe Vera Gel or Juice
There is much confusion between the "Gel" and "Juice" of Aloe Vera.
The Gel refers to the inner leaf only, contains most of the beneficial parts of the plant. The juice refers to Aloe Latex which is the bitter substance found just under the skin of the leaf.
REMEMBER only fresh Aloe Vera has any remarkable properties.
Which means any products made from re-constituted freeze dried Aloe Vera would have little benefit as it is unlikely that all of its beneficial components will have survived freeze drying.
Always look for the word “stabilized”.
