Aloe Vera Gel, Berry Nectar, Forever Freedom, Aloe Vera has been used for a host of purposes since the ancient Egyptians called it the “plant of immortality."
Aloe Vera, popularly known as "Single Bible", "Medicine Plant" or “Bitters” is rumored to cure cancer, purge the blood, make your skin pretty, soothe cuts and burns, heal almost all sicknesses, and in the Caribbean – curbs the habit of sucking fingers. It is relished by adults for its benefits, but frowned upon by children because of its taste. We find it in skin care products, tablets, juices, just to name a few. Can one plant really shrink a cancer tumor and relieve a cold in one go? If so, why isn’t it an ingredient in every medication?
Aloe Vera is derived from the Arabic 'alloeh' meaning "bitter" because of the bitter liquid found in the leaves. It is native to East and South Africa and is grown in most tropical locations including Latin America and the English speaking Caribbean.
It is used both internally and externally on humans. Scientists have discovered over 150 nutritional ingredients in the plant. The ingredients found all work together to give good health benefits and can save lots of trips to the doctor's office.
In the Caribbean, it is popularly used by adults to ‘cure’ or curb the habit of sucking the finger. Parents would just dab the finger in the gel – which looks sumptuous and tasty – so each time the child puts the finger in his mouth he would be greeted with the unpleasant and bitter taste. Many parents saved a trip to the orthodontist for braces thanks to the good old ‘bitter medicine’.
The aloe gel, which is the transparent liquid, when extracted from the plant contains more than 75 nutrients and 200 active compounds that soothe skin problems such as sunburn and cuts. The Cancer Research UK centre, also lists aloe vera as being able to treat and cure cancer. A research done in 2009 revealed that a larger percentage of persons who ingested aloe while doing chemotherapy reported shrinkage of tumors than those who did chemotherapy alone.
This was also compounded by the fact that the negative side effects associated with chemotherapy were reduced in those patients who were drinking aloe vera. The link, however, between cancer treatment and aloe vera is yet to be conclusively made, so many scientists still doubt that aloe vera is a ‘cure’. Nevertheless, no one doubts the fact that its benefits may offer improved conditions for cancer patients.
The variety of minerals found in Aloe Vera are namely; copper, which is important for the red blood cells, skin and hair pigments. Iron, which is involved in oxygen transportation and making hemoglobin in red blood cells and sodium which regulates body liquids, helps nerve performance and deliver nutrients into the blood cells. Amino acids found in the plant helps the body with protein and brain function.
Aloe vera gel is widely used for the external treatment of minor wounds and inflammatory skin disorders, minor skin irritation including burns, bruises and abrasions and is used in the cosmetic industry as a hydrating ingredient in liquids, creams, sun lotions, shaving creams, lip balms and healing ointments. The plant also increase blood flow to the skin, prevents and relieves itching and most importantly gives the body nutrition.
This plant is not the first choice when one thinks about decorating the garden. Frankly, although beautiful in its own way, we would have overlooked it if we were to judge by looks alone. It is however a diamond in the rough. With so many benefits, science and medicine continue to increase its usage and are yet to deny that this plant may just be the one that can cure cancer, buck teeth associated with sucking fingers and give beautiful and radiant skin. So whether you are feeling sick, going to the beach or just want to stay healthy - the next time you go to the store, be sure to get a product with aloe, which is in fact ‘the jack of all trades’.
