(NaturalNews) For centuries, Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) has been used to treat a number of medical and skin conditions. This miracle plant is also known as the 'harmonious remedy' by the Chinese people, the 'elixir of youth' by the Russians and the 'herb of immortality' by the ancient Egyptians. It originated in North Africa and can now be found almost anywhere which has a mild climate.

Vitamins present in Aloe Vera include Vitamin B, A, C, E and folic acid. It also contains calcium, selenium, zinc, magnesium, chromium and magnesium. 20 out of 22 essential amino acids are present in this wonder plant. Peptides found in Aloe Vera help strengthen the immune system.

This plant can be used to heal and treat a large number of medical conditions, such as skin wounds, blisters, jaundice, sunburn, acne, frostbite, constipation, fungal infections, asthma, heartburn, expelling intestinal worms, conjunctivitis, herpes, skin rashes, hepatitis, cirrhosis, insect bites and eczema. It is also able to help protect the body against radiation received through x-rays. Aloe Vera can rejuvenate dry skin, heal fungal and vaginal infections, heal psoriasis and urticaria, reduce the appearance of warts and reduce rosacea. Those suffering from shingles can also benefit a great deal from using this wonder plant.

The compounds found in Aloe Vera are also able to activate the white blood cells necessary to fight against the growth of cancer cells. When used as a paste or lotion, Aloe Vera helps to speed up the healing of cuts, bruises and wounds on the body. It enhances the growth of new skin cells and is also able to reduce the appearance of blemishes or scars on the skin. It has been used as a general health tonic and even as an aphrodisiac. Aloe Vera is able to reduce the appearance of fine lines and skin wrinkles, as well as to help heal sores and lesions found in the mouth.

Aloe Vera is an easy plant to grow and take care of. All it requires is plenty of sunlight each day, along with a little water during the winter season.

There are very few side-effects reported with the use of Aloe Vera products. However, it may lead to cramps or abdominal pain. The use of Aloe Vera is not recommended for children and those with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), appendicitis, diverticulitis, haemorrhoids or ulcers. Excessive use may result in the loss of essential electrolytes in the body. Pregnant women should avoid using Aloe Vera as it may cause premature uterine contractions which could lead to miscarriage.

Always ensure that your Aloe Vera products are purchased from reputable sources, as there are many different variants of the Aloe plant, but only the Aloe Vera is used in the preparation of medicinal treatments and tonics.
