The earliest recorded use of aloe Vera dates back to the 16th century BC. The ancient Egyptians coined it ‘the plant of immortality’ and used it in a variety of ways. There are 20 different amino acids which our body requires in order to rejuvenate. The crux of the matter is that the human body cannot produce these amino acids by itself. If these life essential components are lacking in our nutritional diet it can result in severe deficiency syndromes. Aloe Vera gel contains at least seven of the eight essential amino acids. In addition, it has a lot of the non-essential precious amino acids which enhance the human organism.
Up to the present date, a minimum of 160 important ingredients have been identified in the rich aloe Vera leaves. Some experts surmise that the plant could contain as many as 300 to 400 life essential ingredients. Scientists agree in so far that it is not one single ingredient that accounts for the aloe Vera’s healing effects but that it is a synergy effect of all combined ingredients. And this is exactly what makes the plant so very special: It contains a variety of essential properties that complement each other and combined have a powerful effect. The combined properties supply the human body with a wealth of healing substances.
Monosaccharide and polysaccharides have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-mycotic and immune-stimulating effects. These properties enhance digestion and bind numerous detrimental substances such as cholesterol and gall acid.

Or they stick to the intestinal wall and therefore prevent undesired substances from entering the bloodstream. The most important ingredient is the acemannan which cannot be produces by adults. It supports the immune system, is anti-inflammatory and bolsters the digestive system in its absorption of vital substances.
