Vitamins and minerals are of paramount importance, but there are also other substances that are equally important. Aloe vera provides a variety of these substances and can thus stimulate the immune system back to an optimal level. Research shows that few plants can do this better than Aloe vera. It contains most, if not all, of the vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other innumerable substances, including special, very important sugars and enzymes that are required for the body to function well
The Aloe gel contains a diversity of vitamins. The most important are the antioxidants – the vitamins C, E and Beta carotene – the precursor of vitamin A. Aloe vera is also one of the few plants that contain vitamin B12.
Aloe vera contains a large array of nutrient ingredients whose combined effect and equilibrium yield a more powerful effect than can be expected when looking at the ingredients individually. The ingredients in Aloe vera work together and increase each other’s effect, giving a so-called synergistic effect.
There are more than 240 different varieties of Aloe vera and they grow mainly in the dry regions of Africa, Asia, Europe and America. Four species are considered to have very nutrient rich content, of which Aloe Barbadensis Miller is the foremost and therefore most used in products manufactured today.
