What Aloe Vera Does To Your Body: Why The Egyptians Called it The Plant of Immortality

Aloe Vera is a plant that is regarded as one of the most powerful natural remedies, with many healing properties, which many had been known for centuries. The Native Americans called this plant The Wand of Heaven, and the Egyptians called it The Plant of Immortality.

Even though this plant is used to this day, its usage is not restricted to applying on wounds, burns, or scrapes, but it can be eaten to improve other aspects of the overall health.

Aloe Vera can clean the body and boost the immune system with its antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties.

Christine Ruggeri, a nutrition counselor, talks about some of the healthy components in the Aloe Vera, such as the enzymes and how they break down the proteins that we consume into amino acids, turning enzymes into fuel for the body cells. She also talks about the bradykinase existing in Aloe Vera that stimulates the immune system and fights off infections. Another part of the plant is zinc, which can be used for zinc deficiencies in order to boost the immune function, fight off bacteria and diseases, and is a key structural component of hormone receptors and proteins.

These are just three of the two hundred constituents of the Aloe Vera. There are minerals, vitamins, polysaccharides, enzymes, and amino acids that build the Aloe Vera plant.

This plant is rich in vitamins such as A, C, E, B1, B2, B3, B6, folic acid, and choline. It also contains the B12 vitamin which is important to the body to create red blood cells.

The minerals that this plant contains are iron, calcium, sodium, zinc, potassium, copper, magnesium, chromium, and selenium. These minerals boost the metabolic system. The plant is also high in amylase and lipase, which helps break down fat and sugar in the digestive tract.

This plant also contains 11 of the 20 essential amino acids, such as salicylic acid that breaks down bacteria and is an anti-inflammatory acid.

By consuming this plant, it can eliminate toxins from the colon, liver, stomach, spleen, bladder, and kidneys. It can also soothe the joint inflammation, as well as relieving ulcers, upset stomach, indigestion, and gut inflammation.

Aloe Vera can also improve dental health if used as a mouthwash by removing plaque, soothes, and canker sores.

The way to ingest this plant is by getting its juice, which can be bought from any health food stores. Also, if you have Aloe Vera at home, you can make the juice by squeezing the plant’s juice inside any drink or smoothie.

Based on a lot of research, there are doses recommended for using Aloe Vera and they are:

–    If you are constipated consume 100-200 milligrams of Aloe Vera daily.

–    If you have high cholesterol, take one capsule containing 300 milligrams of Aloe Vera twice a day for two months.

–    If you have inflammatory bowel disease, take 100 milliliters twice a day for four weeks

If you want to find how much dosing you need for another specific treatment or other health issues, consult your doctor.
