The Wonder Of Aloe Vera 

Aloe Vera is a product that can have a dramatic effect on your health and wellness. As we move through modern times with all of the different drugs that are affecting our health both positively and negatively, we need to pay more attention to what nature has provided us in the way of natural remedies for healing.

Plants Are The Answer For Our Health
For our ancestors, effectiveness determined aloe vera’s use. Today, science is validating its healing properties. The Aloe plant is, incredibly, 99% to 99.5% water! All the power of the plant is in that tiny one to one-half percent! I think that’s amazing! If you think about our body and cells relative to size and percentage, it takes 10,000 of our cells to fit on the head of a pin, and each cell is composed of trillions of molecules! Water acts as a carrier for those potent nutrients. The solid material of the aloe plant contains over 75 different ingredients, all important in holistic healing including:
• Minerals;
• Enzymes;
• Amino acids;
• Anthraquinones;
• Sterols;
• Lignins;
• Saponins;
• Salicylic acid;
• Biological sugars.
That’s a LOT packed into such a small percentage! Aloe vera contains most of the major vitamins, except vitamin D, but it does include all of the important antioxidant vitamins A, C, and beta-carotene (Vitamin A). The B vitamins, thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, choline and folic acid are also present.
