Aloe Vera - Is It Just A Laxative (Part II)?

This is the concluding segment of my two-part (Aloe Vera - Is It Just A Laxative?) article on the Aloe Vera plant which for many years was erroneously regarded as no more than a

powerful laxative. Aloe Vera in actual fact is one of Nature''s most potent medicinal herbs. In tandem with it''s ability as an effective and natural weight loss agent, it is also a strong and healthy

Aloe Vera as a Detoxifying Agent:

Aloe Vera also has strong antibacterial and antifungal properties against a broad range of microbes. Carrisyn, an extract of Aloe Vera, has shown recent evidence of being able to

inhibit a number of viruses ''in-vitro'', including the strains responsible for herpes simples, measles, and HIV. Carrisyn appears to work by stimulating the immune system to trigger the production of

blood cells that fight infection, thereby boosting the immune function.

Amino acids methionine, serine, threonine and molybdenum are useful. They detoxify heavy metals, help in proper metabolism of carbohydrates, fat and protein thus preventing buildup

of fat in the liver and arteries.

These laxative and detoxifying properties of Aloe Vera help the colon to work most efficiently. Highly processed and refined foods that are common in today''s diets lack fiber and

pass through the system slowly, allowing toxins in the waste to be reabsorbed into the body. However, on Aloe Vera therapy food passes through the system more quickly and easily. Less obvious problems

due to an inefficient colon like lack of energy, respiratory issues, bad breath, non-cystic acne and dry skin are also avoided.

Aloe Vera helps expel excess water in the cells. Thus it is helpful in many kidney problems such as kidney stones, painful urination. It works wonders in people with failed kidneys.

One of the main reasons for hair loss is toxin in the small intestine. Thus toxins removed by Aloe Vera helps remedy this problem.

Many Studies have shown that regular consumption of Aloe Vera leads to lowering blood glucose level with no toxic effects on kidney or liver function as assessed by blood chemistry.

Aloe Vera helps toning up of the Pancreas, thus regularizing insulin flow.

Aloe Vera helps accelerate the healing of Diabetic wounds. It dramatically lessens inflammation and improves pain response.

Aloe Vera helps in treating indigestion, irritable bowl syndrome, ulcerative colitis, esophagitis, peptic ulcer, chronic colon problems including constipation, hemorrhoids, colitis

and Crohn''s disease. It helps in the removal of excess acid and cough.

Aloe Vera is a rich source of vitamins E and C. These help in boosting the immune system tremendously. Thus it''s an ideal solution to many common allergies such as colds, asthma.

Serine maintain a healthy immune system. Aspartic acid helps increase stamina.

Aloe Vera is one of the most potent sources of antioxidants, vitamins E and C and Vitamin B-12 (only known natural source). Recent studies are demonstrating the remarkable benefits

of antioxidants. Oxidation in cells can damage DNA, leading sometimes to cancer, other diseases and to the changes associated with aging. The antioxidant compounds counter the aging effects wrought by

Other Properties of the Aloe Vera Principle:

Other active ingredients of the Aloe Vera plant include Salicylates, which control inflammation and pain, and an enzyme that inhibits Bradykinin, the chemical messenger responsible

for transmitting pain signals through the nerves. Aloe Vera also contains Magnesium Lactate, a chemical known to inhibit the release of histamines responsible for skin irritation and itching.

Aloe Vera is thus rightly called "The Miracle Herb" due to its many medicinal and useful properties.

When choosing an Aloe Vera product for topical application, look for a product high in Aloe Vera content, which should appear as the first item listed on the ingredients panel.

Helps to promote digestion because it contains enzymes that assist in digestion

Helps to cleanse the digestive tract

Acts as a general tonic, giving energy and nutrients while on a program

Thus, scientific evidence proves that Aloe Vera is your herb of choice for a clean and healthy lifestyle and is definitely much more than just a laxative! It also has the potential

to undo the adverse effects of all the pollutants that we expose ourselves to, including saturated fat and toxic byproducts of industralisation and automobile emissions.
