(NaturalNews) Aloe Vera has a history that spans over 6000 years. The Egyptian civilization was the first to note its extraordinary health benefits and called it the plant of immortality. It was used for various health issues ranging from insomnia, baldness, bad digestion and even cancer. It is now regularly grown in tropical locations such South Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean. Additional healing properties were discovered through time and starting with 18th Century, Aloe Vera was often employed for other conditions like skin irritations, burns and wounds.

Aloe Vera is now considered to be a superfood by many health practitioners since it has continuously displayed outstanding antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and antioxidant properties. This herb is filled with substantial amounts of numerous vitamins and minerals. It is also considered an adaptogen which basically means that it has the ability to help the body adapt and resist to practically any induced changes that normally would lead to illnesses. It automatically stimulates defence mechanisms that can cope much more effectively when faced with various forms of stress.

Aloe Vera is not only exceptionally good for the skin and immune system, but research now tends to show its immense potential when dealing with problems related to the cardiovascular system and even certain forms of cancer.

Research shows that aloe Vera can inhibit skin cancer growth

In India, a study was conducted on Swiss albino mice suffering from stage-2 skin carcinogenesis. The scientists wanted to test Aloe Vera's effectiveness when employed either topically or orally. They immediately noted that when DMBA and croton oil were used all alone on the test subjects, tumors developed 100% of the time. On the other hand, the ones that were given any form of Aloe Vera were up to 60% less likely to develop tumors as the cumulative number of papillomas was considerably diminished. Researchers were convinced that the chemopreventive activity of Aloe Vera stems from its high concentrations of antioxidants, glutathione peroxidise, several isozymes of superoxide dismutase, selenium, zinc and polysaccharides.

Based on a few experiments, it is believed that when Aloe Vera is introduced into the bloodstream, it may significantly increase the oxygen transportation and diffusion abilities of the red blood cells. The 2000 issue of the British Medical Journal published a study that showed how components within Aloe Vera were able to lower cholesterol levels, control blood pressure levels and improve circulation by making the blood more fluid. These results were a clear sign that consuming Aloe Vera will most likely lower risks of heart disease.

Many researchers have realized that burns can heal up to nine days faster when treated with Aloe Vera rather than not. In one study, burns would heal in less than sixteen days using the medicinal plant, while by comparison, it would take at least nineteen days for silver sulfadiazine, a synthetic drug, to have the same effect.
