Why your survival medicine kit is not complete without Aloe Vera
10/20/2016 // Dianne Wiley // Views

Aloe Vera is a versatile plant in that it can help a wide range of issues. From the well-known burn cure, to digestive aids, Aloe is a must for any first aid and survival kit, with the added benefit of being an easy-to-care-for succulent that you can grow from home.

Aloe Vera has 10 natural substances that work with an anti-inflammatory purpose when used topically or taken internally. This is used for arthritis, joint health, and other injuries. As quoted in Textbook of Natural Medicine, Volume 1 by Joseph E Pizzorno and Michael T Murray, “Unlike many other anti-inflammatory substances, Aloe Vera has been shown to stimulate fibroblast and connective tissue formation, thereby promoting wound repair. Finally, aloe appears to stimulate the epidermal growth and repair process, presumably due to its polysaccharides.”

With the natural inclusion of aloin and emodin in its arsenal, Aloe Vera is nature’s own analgesic with antimicrobial and antiviral properties. There have been many studies done, with the first recorded instance being in 1935, looking at the effects of Aloe Vera on burns and injuries.  It was shown to provide accelerated relief of the itching and burning typically associated with skin regeneration.

Another use of Aloe is that of a mouth rinse. When used, it cleans the tongue, gums, refreshes breath and leaves teeth squeaky clean! With the antimicrobial properties, this can help prevent dental diseases when in situations away from traditional oral hygiene materials or running water.

As one of the most versatile plants available, Aloe can be used both topically and internally. As a digestive aid, it supports regularity and helps clear toxins from the body. Taken daily, it can be beneficial in easing digestive issues such as constipation and pain associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. It has also been proven useful at clearing skin from acne and accelerating the skin’s regrowth after burns. It improves collagen and hyaluronic acid production to promote healthy skin and healing.

There is also evidence that Aloe Vera may be useful in lowering cholesterol and maintaining healthy blood sugar levels in diabetics, though the research is still ongoing. This has not been proven as undeniable, though the outlook of the study results is suggesting a positive outcome.

With over 200 active compounds including calcium, sodium, iron, potassium, magnesium, vitamins A, B, C, E, Folic and more, daily intake of Aloe Vera is beneficial to everyday health and an absolute must in any survival medicine kit.
