Properties of Aloe Arborescens: find out which are the main ones
WHAT IS ALOE ARBORESCENS?
Aloe Arborescens is a plant of the Aloeacee family.
It is of African descent and we find references to its therapeutic virtues since ancient Egypt, where it was used for cuts and wounds, burns and skin irritations.
Aloe Arborescens has amazing, countless and sometimes unknown properties. These are properties that Vonderweid, which boasts twenty years of experience in the cultivation and preparation of completely natural and organic products based on Aloe Arborescens, knows very well.
Which ones are they?
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY AND ANALGESIC
For both internal and external use, Aloe Arborescens has a strong pain relieving action, reducing inflammation and altering pain sensitivity.
Aloe Arborescens gel is therefore excellent and particularly suitable in case of:
– insect bites.
Due to its very high content of mineral salts and vitamins, Aloe Arborescens boasts excellent antioxidant properties, fighting aging in a natural way.
Acemannan, a polymeric sugar present in the gel of the Aloe leaf, has significant antiviral activity against various viruses. In particular against the HIV-1 virus, Herpes Simplex and Paramyxovirus (the Measles virus).
ANTIBACTERIAL AND ANTIFUNGING
The active ingredients offer a valid barrier against numerous pathogenic bacteria and fungi, including Escherichia coli and Candida albicans.
HEALING AND RE-HEALING
The polysaccharides and plant hormones contained are able to accelerate the repair of damaged tissue and the formation of new epithelial tissue.
GASTROPROTECTIVE AND GASTROINTESTINAL
The active ingredients help solve the most common disorders of the gastrointestinal system such as:
– abdominal spasms
– abdominal pain and swelling
…Through the following actions:
- it normalizes intestinal secretions
- it improves the intestinal bacterial flora
- it stabilizes the pH in the stomach and intestines
- it improves the function of the pancreas
- it limits the proliferation of pathogens in the colon by reducing putrefactive phenomena.
LAXATIVE AND DEPURATIVE
The purifying activity is mainly linked to polysaccharides, which thanks to their particular composition and viscous consistency, are able to bind and eliminate the toxic substances produced during metabolic processes, thus decreasing the contact time of the waste with the mucous membranes.
The laxative action is instead carried out by aloin which is one of the main constituents of the anthraquinone part.
It is now recognized by many bibliographies that the alleged anticancer activities attributed to this plant have a scientific basis. One of the most studied molecules is Aloe Emodin which, being part of the anthraquinone component, is found only in products containing the external peel of Aloe and, therefore, it cannot be present in gel-only preparations.
