About Forever Living Products
Founded in 1978, Forever Living Products (FLP) led the way in the rediscovery of the health benefits of aloe vera. The company now trades in 160 countries, with sales of $2.5bn. FLP is the largest grower, processor, and distributor of aloe vera products. The company controls the processes of growth, manufacture, and distribution so as to ensure the highest quality of product. Each product has a 30 day money back guarantee.  It was also the first company to be awarded the International Aloe Science Council’s Seal of Approval.
Neither the products nor their ingredients have been tested on animals and many products can be used on animals. Aloe vera contains 200 active compounds, and 75 nutrients. It has been used as an aid to health for centuries.
The products are not listed medicines, neither for humans nor animals and it is not promoted as such. They are meant to be used in conjunction with medication, not instead of it. The topical products are specifically used for skin ailments and are recommended for reducing the sensitivity of their skin and the oral products are generally used but is not limited to improve digestion.
Dr David Urch, a UK vet, has written a book about the use of aloe vera in veterinary practise. It is called Aloe Vera, Nature’s Gift. He explains in detail the properties of aloe vera and how it can be used on animals. He includes many before and after photographs. An interesting historical note is that when he started researching the use of aloe vera on animals he realised that the plant is depicted at the top of the veterinary crest in the hand of the cenotaph. Aloe vera’s outstanding health properties have been known for a long time!
The Benefits of using Aloe Products on your Pet
Skin Problems:  Aloe Vera is an excellent preparation to use for skin conditions such as allergies, abscesses, fungal infections, pyoderma, and many types of dermatitis. The oral gel can be given in the food, and the topical varieties applied directly to the skin. Aloe Vera will decrease inflammation as well as helping to remove dead cells and discharges. It will encourage a suitable environment for regeneration of cells so aiding the healing of wounds.
Wounds and Burns:   These respond particularly well to Aloe Vera. For a wound or burn to heal effectively it must be kept clean and moist with a supply of nutrients. It will also require air and may need protecting. Take care when removing dressings not to damage new cells. Aloe Vera can aid the natural healing processes and help secure the above objectives.
Digestive System:   Aloe Vera can prove very beneficial in helping conditions of the digestive system, particularly where inflammation is involved. Conditions such as stomatitis, gingivitis, and oral ulceration can all be helped with aloe Vera.
The most useful preparations for use in the mouth are those that are spray based and the gelly. More serious conditions such as vomiting and diarrhoea also often respond to oral administration of Aloe Vera Gel combined with bland diets. Remember that all products must be used in conjunction with medication or veterinary advice and not instead of.
Immune System:     A number of animal diseases have their origin in the immune system. The most common are asthma, hay fever, rhinitis, arthritis, and lupus. The oral administration of Aloe Vera can be useful in chronic immunological problems.
Ear and Eye Problems:   One of the most common ear conditions is otitis externa where infection and inflammation develop in the vertical and horizontal ear canals. These are often mixed infections of mites, bacteria, fungi, and yeasts and may also involve foreign bodies such as grass seeds. Aloe Vera gel, Gelly and in combination with Bee Propolis can be very useful in treating this condition. Always ensure that a vet sees the ear so that causes such as foreign objects and tumours can be dealt with if present.
Eye conditions are potentially more serious and should always be examined by a vet. A dilute solution of Aloe Vera can be helpful for conjunctivitis and keratitis.

Our Teeth and the role of Aloe Vera in oral hygiene 

Why are my teeth so important?

Your teeth vary in shape and size depending on where they are in your mouth. These differences allow the teeth to do many different jobs. Teeth help us to chew and digest food. They help us to talk, and to pronounce different sounds clearly. Finally, teeth help to give our face its shape. A healthy smile can be a great asset; and because this is so important, it makes sense to give your teeth the best care possible.

So What can go wrong?

Tooth decay can be painful and lead to fillings, crowns or inlays. If tooth decay is not treated, the nerve of the tooth can become infected and die, causing an abscess. This may then need root canal treatment or even for the tooth to be removed. It is very important that you keep up a good routine at home to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Gum disease is common and, if left untreated, may lead to bone loss around the teeth. In some cases it may lead to loose teeth and teeth being lost. Gum disease is preventable. It can be treated and kept under control with regular cleaning sessions and check-ups, preventing further problems. If teeth are lost, it may be necessary to fill the gaps with bridges, dentures or implants.

How do I keep my teeth and gums healthy?

It is easy to get your mouth clean and healthy, and keep it that way. A simple routine can help prevent most dental problems:
  • brushing your teeth last thing at night and at least one other time during the day, with a fluoride toothpaste
  • cleaning between the teeth with ‘interdental' brushes or floss at least once a day
  • good eating habits - having sugary foods and drinks less often
So How can Aloe Vera help look after your teeth ?
It can help reduce dental plaque

Tooth decay and diseases of the gum are very common health problems.One of the best ways to prevent this from happening is to reduce the buildup of plaque (bacterial biofilms) on the teeth. In a mouth rinse study of 300 healthy people, 100% pure Aloe Vera juice was compared to the standard mouthwash ingredient chlorhexidineAfter 4 days of use, the Aloe Vera mouth rinse was found to be just as effective as chlorhexidine in reducing dental plaque Another study found similar benefits of Aloe Vera mouth rinse when used over a 15- to 30-day period .
Aloe Vera does this by killing the plaque-producing bacterium Streptococcus mutansin the mouth, as well as the yeast Candida albicans .
Helps treat mouth ulcers
Many people have experienced mouth ulcers, at some point in their lives.They usually form underneath the lip, inside the mouth, and last for about 7-10 days. Studies have convincingly shown that Aloe Vera treatment can accelerate the healing of mouth ulcers.

Helps treat Gingivitis

Gingivitis is a common disorder of the gums that causes inflammation of the gingiva, the gum tissue that surrounds the teeth. Symptoms include swelling and tenderness of the gums as well as bleeding. This condition is due to the build up of bacterial plaque. Without daily proper removal of the bacteria, it accumulates on and around teeth, which produces enzymes and toxins causing the inflammation of gingiva. This condition not only causes pain, but also can cause the teeth to decay and the bones that support teeth to deteriorate. Aloe Vera works to kill the bacteria that cause gingivitis, preventing plaque from building up on the gingiva.

Helps Bad Breath

Aloe Vera works as a natural remedy for bad breath that is caused by harmful bacteria and fungus in the mouth as well as digestive problems. Aloe Vera kills theses harmful bacteria and fungus while promoting healthy digestion. It also helps protect the soft tissues of the oral cavity, reducing the likelihood of bad breath.
Aloe Vera and Gum Disease
Periodontal disease and gingivitis can raise the risks of developing heart disease, strokes, diabetes and lung infections. This is due to the harmful oral bacteria invading veins and arteries causing arterial plaque build up and inflammation.
Using Aloe Vera oral care products can reduce the risks of developing these dangerous oral diseases, which can lead to serious disorders. Periodontal disease also can affect blood sugar levels. If the oral bacteria are spread through the blood stream, the body becomes confused. This can affect proper blood sugar levels, resulting in diabetes. Harmful bacteria that grows within the oral cavity can also be breathed in, which can cause infection of the lungs, resulting in pneumonia or other lung problems. Using Aloe Vera oral care products daily can offer the healthy benefits of protection, prevention and healing of oral conditions that can lead to more serious disorders.

Aloe Vera Oral Care Products

Aloe Vera products for oral health include toothpaste, mouthwash and dental floss. Unlike regular toothpaste, Aloe Vera tooth gel is nonabrasive, which is ideal for those with sensitive teeth. It also cleanses and soothes the gums and teeth. It contains no bleaching agents, fluoride or harsh chemicals, making it a natural product that helps prevent and treat dental problems as well as whitens teeth naturally. Aloe Vera mouthwash is ideal for daily use to keep gums and oral mucosa healthy. Aloe Vera dental floss soothes gums while flossing, providing this potent natural substance in hard-to-reach areas. Using all three of these types of products in daily dental care is ensuring that teeth and gums will remain healthy, which may reduce the need for those dreaded dentist visits. This product is not only to be used on humans but can also be used on your family pets to help look after their teeth and gums too . For just under £6.00 can afford to be without yours ?.

The role Aloe Vera has in summer skin care 

Summer is here! 

Who doesn’t want to be outside, sunbathing, swimming, playing catch on the beach  or just have a BBQ in your garden? While summer means fun in the sun, make sure you’re not getting  too much of a good thing. Avoid consequences of  overexposure to the sun like sunburns, premature  ageing of the skin, wrinkling, and skin cancer, including melanoma by practising proper sun  protection. 

Sunscreen Protection

Use sunscreen with sun protective factor (SPF) 15 or higher, and both UVA and UVB  protection.  · Sunscreen wears off. Put it on again if you  stay out in the sun for more than two hours, and after you swim or do things that make  you sweat.

So the sun is out and You lie out in the sun hoping to get a golden tan, but instead walk away from your lounge chair looking like a lobster that's been left in the pot too long.
Despite health warnings about sun damage, many of us still subject our skin to the sun's burning rays.
More than one-third of adults and nearly 70% of children admit they've gotten sunburned within the past year
Forever living has fantastic sunscreen protection products . It comes in a spray bottle and also a cream formulation 
  • SPF 30 with full-spectrum UVA & UVB protection
  • Very water resistant

What Causes Sunburn

You already know the simple explanation behind sunburn. When your skin is exposed to the sun for a period of time, eventually it burns, turning red and irritated.
Under the skin, things get a little more complicated. The sun gives off three wavelengths of ultraviolet light:
  • UVA
  • UVB
  • UVC
UVC light doesn't reach the Earth's surface. The other two types of ultraviolet light not only reach your beach towel, but they penetrate your skin. Skin damage is caused by both UVA and UVB rays.
Sunburn is the most obvious sign that you've been sitting outside for too long. But sun damage isn't always visible. Under the surface, ultraviolet light can alter your DNA, prematurely ageing your skin. Over time, DNA damage can contribute to skin cancers, including deadly melanoma.
How soon a sunburn begins depends on:
  • Your skin type
  • The sun's intensity
  • How long you're exposed to the sun

Signs of Sunburn

When you get a sunburn, your skin turns red and hurts. If the burn is severe, you can develop swelling and sunburn blisters. You may even feel like you have the flu -- feverish, with chills, nausea, headache, and weakness.
A few days later, your skin will start peeling and itching as your body tries to rid itself of sun-damaged cells.
Aloe vera is touted as the “burn plant,” the perfect natural remedy for a bad sunburn, and according to some studies aloe vera can help. Initial research has shown aloe vera aids the skin in healing from sunburns and mild burns.
Aloe First 
This exclusive skin soothing formula is an excellent first step for soothing minor skin irritations. Formulated in a base of stabilized Aloe Vera Gel, Aloe First® contains Bee Propolis, Allantoin and eleven exclusive plant extracts:
  • Bee Propolis increases the natural skin-soothing and cleansing properties of the Aloe Vera Gel.
  • Allantoin is a beneficial ingredient found in many plants, including aloe.
  •    Eleven carefully selected plant extracts, also known for their beneficial properties, complete this powerful          formula .

    The combination of aloe and herbs provide a naturally soothing, pH-balanced spray that is easy to apply to even sensitive skin. Aloe First® is designed to soothe the skin after minor cuts, scrapes, burns, and sunburn.

    Aloe Vera and the Immune System 

    The immune system, which is made up of special cells, proteins, tissues, and organs, defends people against germs and microorganisms every day. In most cases, the immune system does a great job of keeping people healthy and preventing infections. But sometimes problems with the immune system can lead to illness and infection.

    About the Immune System

    The immune system is the body's defence against infectious organisms and other invaders. Through a series of steps called the immune response, the immune system attacks organisms and substances that invade body systems and cause disease.
    The immune system is made up of a network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to protect the body. One of the important cells involved are white blood cells, also called leukocytes, which come in two basic types that combine to seek out and destroy disease-causing organisms or substances.
    Leukocytes are produced or stored in many locations in the body, including the thymus, spleen, and bone marrow. For this reason, they're called the lymphoid organs. There are also clumps of lymphoid tissue throughout the body, primarily as lymph nodes, that house the leukocytes.
    The leukocytes circulate through the body between the organs and nodes via lymphatic vessels and blood vessels. In this way, the immune system works in a coordinated manner to monitor the body for germs or substances that might cause problems.
    The two basic types of leukocytes are:
    1. phagocytes, cells that chew up invading organisms
    2. lymphocytes, cells that allow the body to remember and recognise previous invaders and help the body destroy them

    Aloe Vera Helps Immune System

    Aloe also seems to be excellent at regulating the immune system (an immunomodulator). This means it can both stimulate the immune response for those with weakened immune systems either from existing conditions or post-illness fatigue. It can also calm the immune response, such as for hay fever where less immune reaction is beneficial. Various research studies are underway to explore the potential of the components to boost immunity. It may even have a role to play in managing diabetes. Numerous studies worldwide indicate that it is a general tonic for the immune system, helping it to fight illness of all kinds. Over 200 worldwide scientific research papers have been published on the effects. The three main categories of research include anti-inflammatory, anti- bacterial, and anti-viral actions of the plant. The juice is said to soothe digestive tract irritations such as colitis, ulcers and irritable bowel syndrome. It's ability to encourage the release of pepsin (a gastric juice enzyme necessary for digestion) when the stomach is full is a possible reason for its ulcer-healing effects.
    Your health and physical well being is threatened by a reduced immune system.
    Obviously, you have to do something to ensure that you boost your immunity and keep your body strong so that it can fight disease and keep them off.
    But, what can you do?
    One popular and effective way of increasing your immunity to illness is by drinking aloe Vera gel.

    Forever Living Aloe Vera Gel provides natural support for the immune system.
    Since the immune system works around the clock protecting the body, aloe Vera, with its natural immune enhancers, gives the body a continual arsenal from which to draw.
    Do You Wish You Could Feel Like You Were 18 Again?
    Do you want to regain the boundless energy, health of mind and body and the feeling of immortality that comes with youth...
    I believe that each of us can, and should, take action to boost our immunity and keep ourselves as healthy and vibrant as possible.
    And that is why I encourage you to get Forever Living Aloe Vera and start boosting your immunity today!

    The Menopause and the benefit of Aloe Vera 

    What is the Menopause 

    The menopause is a natural phenomenon which occurs in all women when their finite number of ovarian follicles becomes depleted. As a result, Oestrogen and progesterone hormone levels fall, and luteinising hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) increase in response. Menstruation becomes erratic and eventually stops.

    Menopausal symptoms are attributed to tissue sensitivity to lower Oestrogen levels. This primarily affects the oestrogen receptors in the brain. The experience of women varies widely, with some being debilitated and others unaffected by their symptoms. Some women experience symptoms while still menstruating and others not until a year or more after their last period.
    Around 80% of women going through their menopause experience symptoms and around a quarter have severe symptoms but only a small proportion of menopausal women take hormone replacement therapy (HRT).Symptoms of the menopause last far longer than most women anticipate; frequent menopausal vasomotor symptoms, including night sweats and hot flushes, persist in more than half of women for more than seven years. 
    1. Menstrual irregularity
    2. Hot Flushes and Sweats 
    3. Urinary and Vaginal Symptoms
    4. Sleep Disturbance
    5. Mood Changes 
    6. Loss of Libido 
    Other changes may include brittle nails , hair loss, thinning of the skin and general aches and pains which are due to falling oestrogen levels . 

    For all these issues and much more , that's why Aloe Vera is the perfect Anti-dote 

    So What Can Help ? 

    1. Aloe Vera Berry Nectar , This contains cranberry which is a known great natural remedy for urinary tract infection and also helpful in balancing hormonal changes . It contains 100%stabilised Aloe Vera . 
    2. Forever Royal Jelly , this is a favourite among women, by helping maintain healthy skin and also to balance the hormonal system. 
    3. Forever Arctic Sea Omega 3, this contains Omega 3 and Omega 9 which helps to reduce bad cholesterol and contribute to a better cardiovascular system . 
    4. Forever Nature Min , this supplement provides 11 minerals including Calcium, Magnesium and Phosphorus which are important to help strengthen bones.

    As a sufferer my self i wanted to write about this degenrating joint disease and the effects it can have on daily life and also what can help . 

    What is osteoarthritis ? 

    Osteoarthritis is a joint disease that mostly affects cartilage. Cartilage is the slippery tissue that covers the ends of bones in a joint. Healthy cartilage allows bones to glide over each other. It also helps absorb shock of movement. In osteoarthritis, the top layer of cartilage breaks down and wears away. This allows bones under the cartilage to rub together. The rubbing causes pain, swelling, and loss of motion of the joint. Over time, the joint may lose its normal shape. Also, bone spurs may grow on the edges of the joint. Bits of bone or cartilage can break off and float inside the joint space, which causes more pain and damage.
    People with osteoarthritis often have joint pain and reduced motion. Unlike some other forms of arthritis, osteoarthritis affects only joints and not internal organs. Rheumatoid arthritis - the second most common form of arthritis - affects other parts of the body besides the joints. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis.
    What causes Osteoarthritis ?
    Osteoarthritis usually happens gradually over time. Here are Some risk factors that might lead to it these include:
    • Being overweight
    • Getting older
    • Joint injury
    • Joints that are not properly formed
    • A genetic defect in joint cartilage
    • Stresses on the joints from certain jobs and playing sports.
    What can help ?

    Medication / pain relief can help , surgery also in later stages , but most of all you can make changes to your lifestyle to help . 

    Dietary alteration and food supplements to promote changes in cartilage replacement rates. The benefits of chondroitin and glucosamine for joint health are well documented, they are primarily responsible for keeping the cartilage layers well hydrated. Methyl Sulfonyl Methane (MSM) has also been shown in trials to reduce both acute and chronic pain for sufferers. With this type of treatment, there is a requirement to maintain a regular intake.

    Here at Luscious Aloe  there are a few products which can help this joint degeneration disease.

    1. Forever Living have a product (Forever Freedom) gel, specifically for persons suffering with osteoarthritis, it contains all the ingredients previously mentioned and has yielded some fantastic results, by preventing further degradation of joint tissue, reduction of pain and increased mobility. The results are from a very extensive collection of personal testimonials made by osteoarthritis and arthritis sufferers.
    2.  Aloe MSM gel can also be bought from here and is an excellent topical application cream that uses aloe as an absorption carrier to take MSM directly into the joint area.

    Psoriarsis & how aloe propolis creme can help

    What is Psoriarsis ? 

    Psoriasis is a long-lasting auto-immune disease characterized by patches of abnormal skin.
    These skin patches are typically red, itchy, and scaly. They may vary in severity from small and localized to complete body coverage.
    In a healthy person, the outer layer of skin is regenerated about once each month, yet with the condition Psoriasis affecting the immune system the process is accelerated and diseased skin is reproduced around every 3-4 days. The faster regeneration process requires more skin to be shed, and this appears as the whitish scales on the surface of the face or body. In this condition, skin becomes cracked and can invariably be more prone to bacterial infections.
    Psoriasis forms quite slowly and it’s rare that other symptoms accompany the condition. However, in around 10% of Psoriasis sufferers, Arthritis can form in the joints of the body, causing increased pain and discomfort, which can have a snowballing affect on the Psoriasis itself.

    So why Propolis creme ?

    Bees are some of natures busiest creatures. They build intricate hives, produce honey, pollinate flowers and provide health supplements to humans in the form of bee pollen and Propolis. The use of bee Propolis as a treatment for various skin ailments has been around almost since the beginning of time.

    What Is Bee Propolis?

    Propolis is a sticky substance that bees make which is better known as "bee glue". The process 
    begins when an expert propolis-making bee gathers resin from cone-producing evergreen trees or from the buds of trees. 
    Humans have been using this as an antiseptic since the times of ancient Egypt. Applying Propolis to wounds & skin conditions greatly improved the healing throughout the centuries. 

    The Aloe Propolis creme is fab for skin conditions especially psoriasis .  Aloe Propolis Creme is a rich blend of stabilized Aloe Vera Gel and Bee Propolis, with other ingredients recognized for their contribution to healthy skin. Chamomile, one of nature’s best-known skin care herbs, is also added to the mix. Vitamins A and E complete the formula, recognized for their natural skin-conditioning properties.

    Aloe Vera and Eczema

    The word eczema comes from the Greek word “ekzein” which means “to boil.”
    Eczema (also known as dermatitis) is a dry skin condition. It is a highly individual condition which varies from person to person and comes in many different forms. It is not contagious so you cannot catch it from someone else.
    In mild cases of eczema, the skin is dry, scaly, red and itchy. In more severe cases there may be weeping, crusting and bleeding. Constant scratching causes the skin to split and bleed and also leaves it open to infection.
    Eczema affects people of all ages but is primarily seen in children. Those who “grow out” of their eczema during early childhood may see it recur again in later life.
    In the UK, one in five children and one in twelve adults have eczema while eczema and contact dermatitis account for 84-90% of occupational skin disease(According to published data). 
    Atopic eczema is a genetic condition based on the interaction between a number of genes and environmental factors. In most cases there will be a family history of either eczema or one of the other ‘atopic’ conditions i.e asthma or hay fever.
    Aloe vera is often touted as being a miracle cure for eczema but does it really work? There is plenty of anecdotal evidence that it can be helpful but is there any scientific evidence? The ScratchSleeves team have been digging into the scientific literature to bring you the ultimate fact based guide on using aloe vera for eczema in children.
    How Aloe Vera Can Help Eczema
    • Hydrates the skin: There is good scientific evidence that Aloe Vera gel is an effective moisturiser which can increase the water content in the top layer of the skin (the epidermis). This is thought to be due to the high sugar content of the gel which allows it to act as a humectant, attracting and holding water in the epidermis. Increasing the water content of the skin can reduce the ‘tight’ feeling of eczema.
    • Reduces infections – Eczema is often aggravated by infections so minimising them can often make a big difference to a overall eczema symptoms. This is especially true of young children who are prone to getting mucky and scratching and whose immune systems are still developing Several studies have shown that Aloe Vera gel can inhibit the proliferation of various strains of Streptoccocus bacteria and Candida albican (a yeast).
    • Calms the itch: A number of known anti-inflammatory substances have been indentified in Aloe Vera gel which can help calm inflamed eczema and reduce the incessant itching. It also feels really cool when applied to have an immediate calming effect too.
    • May help hydrocortisone work better: There is an indication that Aloe Vera gel may enhance absorption of hydrocortisone into the skin, which suggests that using Aloe Vera gel in conjunction with prescription steroid cream more effective in calming eczema flare ups than just steroid creams alone. While more research is needed to understand and verify this finding, Aloe Vera/hydrocortisone cream is already available in some parts of the world.
