    ALOE VERA HERBAL DESCRIPTION

    THE BURN PLANT

    Aloe (Aloe Barbadensis / Aloe Capensis / Aloe Vera Family - Liliaceae) originated in eastern and southern Africa. From there it migrated to America. Today it is primarily grown in subtropical areas of the United States and in the West Indies. The spiky Aloe Vera plant can be found today in households worldwide, where it provides ever-ready, soothing first aid for burns, scrapes, cuts and skin infections. Historically - from the soldiers who applied aloe to battle wounds to the Empress Josephine, who used it on her royal complexion, to today's cosmetic shelves full of aloe-enriched products - the plant has proved its healing worth. The gel, which oozes from the leaves when they are split open, is what gives value to the plant. It is considered one of the plant world's most effective moisturizers. Aloe's ability to accelerate wound healing is also established - just how the plant achieves this feat, however, is not clear. One theory is that it spurs blood flow to the wound area and helps cells regenerate. Whatever the reason, an aloe plant is a useful first aid kit addition.

    Since prehistoric times, the succulent Aloe plant has been used for the treatment of burns, wound infections, and other skin problems. This time honored trick remains useful today. All you have to do is cut off a leaf at its base, slice it open length wise, and apply as much gel as you want directly to your burn or cut. The thick gel will dry to form a natural bandage. Aloe has played a significant medicinal role for thousands of years. Egyptians, Assyrians, and Mediterranean peoples used the dried latex prmarily, but also the gel. In Egypt, Aloe was called "The Plant of Immortality" and was given as an offering at the funerals of Pharohs and used in the baths of Egyptian queens, Nefertiti and Cleopatra. Alexander the Great conquered Socotra Island, reportedly at the request of Aristotle, just to obtain Aloe. In the first century, the Greek physician Dioscorides used Aloe for mouth infections, sores, wounds and as a purgative. In the 17th century, records show that the East India Company frequently purchased Aloe from the king of Socotra. Today, Egyptians still hang an Aloe plant over the door of a new house to provide a long and fruitful life for its occupants. Chinese medicine uses Aloe to treat fungal diseases. Ayurvedic medicine uses it for stomach tumors, constipation, colic, skin disorders, amenorrhea, worm infestation , and infections. South Africa uses if for eye inflammations and syphilis. The most common uses of Aloe refer to the gel inside its cactus-like leaves.

    A different species of Aloe called Aloe Barbadensis (Curacao Aloe) is the common species predominantly used to produce Aloe gel and juice. Cape Aloe or Aloe Ferox, is produced by drying the inner fillet of the leaf and milling it into powder. The end result is a powder which is green-brown in color. Alexander the Great is said to have sent his army from Greece to an island off the coast of Somalia just to obtain its crop of aloe.
      Constituents: Aloe-emodin, arginine, magnesium, salicylates, serine, vitamin C, and complex polysaccharides including acemannan.
      Parts Used: The inner fillet of the leaf, dehydrated and powdered.
      Typical Preparations: "Bitter Aloe" is a dried latex taken from the "peel" of the leaves, more precisely the double wall of the leaf's water sacs. When bitter aloe is first extracted from the leaf, it is yellow, turning brown as it dries. The type of Cape Aloe sold by Mountain Rose Herbs is made from the inner fillet of the leaf and is dehydrated and powdered.

    Aloe is not recommended for deeper wounds because it causes the skin to tighten too soon, hindering the recovery of the deeper layers. Internally, Cape aloe and its cousins are not recommended internally while nursing or pregnant. It is a bulk forming laxative and adequate fluids must be taken. Use of this herb may cause gastrointestinal upset and watery stools. Not recommended for long term use.

    PLANT DESCRIPTION

    There are over 240 different species of Aloe, growing mainly in the dry regions of Africa, Asia, Europe and America. There are over 500 species of Aloe growing in climates worldwide. Of the over 240 species of Aloe, four are recognized as having nutritional value with Aloe barbadensis miller leading the group. Aloe barbadensis miller is the type of Aloe used in most products with aloe content available commercially today.

    Although Aloe Vera is a member of the Lily family, it is very cactus-like in its characteristics. This unique plant also belongs to a larger plant family called Xeroids. The aloe leaf contains over 75 nutrients and 200 active compounds, including 20 minerals, 18 amino acids, and 12 vitamins and is about 96 percent water. The rest of it contains active ingredients including essential oil, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, enzymes and glycoproteins. Aloe vera extract is made by pulverizing the whole leaves of the plant. Aloe vera juice is made from the inner leaf.

    The most important components of aloe are its anthracene compounds, such as aloin and aloe emodin, which affects the large intestine. The plant contains resins and bitters. Its gel contains polysaccarides, enzymes, amino acids and antibiotic substances.

    GARDENING TIPS

    The distinctive Aloe Vera plant is a succulent with extensively branched roots for soaking up all possible moisture. Its fleshy, fattish leaves taper to a point and are trimmed with small thorns. Tubular blossoms are red, yellow or bright orange. Flowers are rarely seen in aloes that are grown as house plants.

    Aloe Vera loves warmth and sun, but will grow in partial shades. It needs loose, rather dry soil with high humus content. It grows up to 3 feet in the ground and 16 inches in containers. Almost a maintenance-free plant, aloe should be watered once every two weeks during its growth period in spring and summer, in the winter, water only once a month. Aloe is highly tolerant of dry conditions and can survive up to four months without water.

    You can harvest Aloe Vera gel from the outermost leaves at any time of the year on plants at least 2 years old. Only two- to three year old plants are thought therapeutically effective. use the lowest leaves since these contain the greatest quantity of gel. Cut the leaves lengthwise and scrape out the gel with a blunt-edged knife. The fresh gel should be used immediately.

    PROPAGATION

    Starting aloe from seeds is impractical because seeds are generally unavailable. It is best to buy aloe as a young plant - you might find it as Aloe barbadensis, a variety of aloe vera. You can propagate new plants from 2 to 3-year-old plants, which develop suckers - basically, baby plants. As soon as these grow 3 to 4 inches tall, they have developed roots and can be separated from the parent plant by gently digging up the entire adult plant and remove the baby plants, leaving small roots as intact as possible. Give each baby plant its own container filled with well-drained, soil-less potting mix (peat moss, vermiculite and compost). Place in a spot with at least a half day of sunlight; water sparingly. The offspring plant will develop its own suckers, or baby plants, after 2 years or more. Most aloe plants in North America are grown in containers, since only gardens in the southernmost zone 10 (California, Florida), with their higher temperatures, can sustain year-round outdoor growing of aloe. Aloe plants are very tender and will liquefy if left in temperatures below 40°F. In all other zones, move your potted aloe outside only during the warm summer months and keep it indoors for the rest of the year.

    PESTS

    If you find little white tufts of waxy wool on your aloe, mealy bugs have most likely infested your plant. Rid your plant of these pests by swabbing the spots with alcohol or knocking them off with a stream of water.

    ALOE VERA HISTORY

    Aloe, native to Africa, is also known as lily of the desert, the plant of immortality, and the medicine plant. The name was derived from the Arabic alloeh meaning bitter because of the bitter liquid found in the leaves. Aloe has a long history as a cosmetic lotion. It is said that Cleopatra used aloe every day to preserve her famous beauty and keep her skin supple, glowing and youthfully appealing. In 1500 B.C. Egyptians recorded use of the herbal plant in treating burns, infections and parasites. Ancient Greeks, Arabs and Spaniards have used the plant throughout the millennia. African hunters still rub the gel on their bodies to reduce perspiration and their scent.

    Modern healers have used aloe vera since the 1930's. Research has isolated compounds that may help account for other healing abilities, including antifungal and anti-inflammatory components, but the evidence for targeted use of these is not yet conclusive. In the 1990s, a body of scientific literature has arisen providing a rational scientific basis for aloe's use in treating minor wounds and burns. Since the safety of such procedures has never been questioned, it is a therapy that has much to recommend it. Many liquid health treatments are made, some combining aloe juice with other plants and herbs. The juice is soothing to digestive tract irritations, such as colitis and peptic ulcers.

    Extensive research since the 1930's has shown that the clear gel has a dramatic ability to heal wounds, ulcers and burns by putting a protective coating on the affected areas and speeding up the healing rate. Aloe vera is commonly known as a skin healer, moisturizer, and softener. It is dramatically effective on burns of all types, and is also good for cuts, insect stings, bruises, acne and blemishes, poison ivy, welts, skin ulcers, and eczema.

    ALOE VERA USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    MEDICINAL USES

    Aloe Vera is a medicine that the scientific community has not done the proper research it deserves. Aloe Vera has been used for a very long time. Aloe Vera has been used for such a wide variety of things, the parts used are the Aloe latex which is the sticky residue left over after the liquid from cut Aloe leaves has evaporated. Also the Aloe Vera extract is made by pulverizing the whole leaves of the plant and let us not forget the Aloe juice and gel made from the inner leaf (mostly used for minor cuts and burns). The Aloe Vera leaf contains more than 200 different items. Some of the items are, Vitamin C, E, Zinc, Polysaccharides,(a type of carbohydrate that stimulates skin growth and repair), amino acids, enzymes, essential oil, essential fatty acids (anti-inflammatory), glycoproteins (protein - carbohydrate compounds that speed the healing process by stopping pain and inflammation) and these are to name a few. Here is a list of some of the things Aloe Vera, either alone or with other ingredients, is used for in a medicinal way today:
    • Bacterial, Viral, Fungal & Parasitic Conditions: Relieves symptoms of yeast infections, genital herpes, fungal infections, Epstein-Barr virus (chronic fatigue syndrome) Candida and Herpes simplex and zoster.
    • Blood Conditions: Assists hyperglycemis and blood circulation, hemorrhoids, lowers blood sugar in people with type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes.
    • Cardiovascular Conditions: Relieves hypertension.
    • Inflammatory Bowel Conditions: Aloe is used to help Crohn's disease, gastritis, ulcerative colitis.
    • Female Conditions: Menstual cramps and irregularity, suppressed menses.
    • Soothes Digestive Tract Irritation: Aloe Vera Juice help with colitis, duodenal ulcers, peptic ulcers.
    • Immune System Conditions: Allergic reactions, has immune-stimulating actions, strengthens the body's natural resistance.
    • Liver Conditions: Helps liver and gall bladder functions, helps hypercholesterolemia.
    • Joint Conditions: Helps to relieve arthritis symptoms.
    • Urinary Tract Conditions: Assists Kidney Function
    • External Body Conditions:On the Outside Aloe Vera gel is helpful on the skin for treating abrasions, acne, boils, burns, bursitis, chafed and cracked skin, chafed nipples from breastfeeding, cuts and scratches, dandruff, dermatitis, hemorrhoids, inflamed eyes, insect bites, psoriasis, radiation burns, rashes, sprains, stings ulcers, varicose veins. Aids in keeping the Skin supple.
    • Infectious Conditions: Draws out and prevents infection.

    Aloe Vera is a good plant to keep in the kitchen. Fresh gel from the aloe plant produces the best results for first aid being directly applied to the damaged skin. When the leaf is broken, its gel is placed on minor burns and sunburns to relieve pain and prevent blisters. Aloe may be used for cuts and scrapes to reduce inflammation, decrease swelling and redness, and accelerate wound healing.

    As a natural moisturizer, aloe softens the skin and helps to restore damaged tissue. Aloe can aid in keeping the skin supple, and has been used in the control of acne and eczema. It can relieve itching due to insect bites, poison ivy rashes, and allergies. Aloe's healing power come from increasing the availability of oxygen to the skin, and by increasing the synthesis and strength of tissue. To get even more benefit from fresh gel for slowly healing sores, apply a cut whole leaf to the area and cover with gauze. Aloe has been found useful for radiation-therapy burns and for frostbite.

    As a food supplement, aloe is said to facilitate digestion, aid in blood and lymphatic circulation, as well as kidney, liver and gall bladder functions. Taken internally, 98 to 99 percent pure aloe vera is known to aid in the healing of stomach disorders, ulcers, constipation, hemorrhoids, rectal itching, colitis, and all colon problems. Aloe contains at least three anti-inflammatory fatty acids that are helpful for the stomach, small intestine and colon. It naturally alkalizes digestive juices to prevent over-acidity - a common cause of indigestion.

    Aloe can also be helpful against infections, varicose veins, skin cancer, and arthritis, and is used in the treatment of AIDS. A newly discovered compound in aloe, acemannan, is currently being studied for its ability to strengthen the bodies natural resistance. Studies have shown acemannan to boost T-lymphocyte cells and aid the immune system.

    It helps cleanse the digestive tract by exerting a soothing, balancing effect. A potent laxative juice, different from the gel, comes from the base of the leaves and is dried. There have been excellent results in using colon cleansers containing psyllium husks in combination with aloe vera juice. This combination has been found to be good for food allergy and colon disorder sufferers. Psyllium keeps the folds and pockets in the colon free of toxic material that gathers there. The aloe vera not only has a healing effect, but if constipation or diarrhea is present, it will return the stools to normal. It takes a few weeks to cleanse the colon, but regular, periodic use will keep the colon clean. As with any substance, it is possible to develop an intolerance to aloe vera and/or psyllium husks, so this treatment should not be used on an ongoing basis. Aloe vera juice is available commercially for use internally.

    METHODS OF ADMINISTRATION

    Fresh Leaves

    Please, as always, follow the instructions or directions on the package or follow the instructions given by your Health Care Professional.





    ALOE VERA SAFETY, CAUTIONS & INTERACTIONS

    SAFETY CONCERNS

    There is no need to worry about using too much Aloe when the Aloe Vera is used externally on the skin. Aloe is very safe when used externally. To make it more soothing, keep a bottle of Aloe Gel chilled in the refrigerator. Apply the cold gel liberally as needed on burns for a cooling, soothing effect. If you have more than a superficial wound, you should see your health care provider about using a different salve, antibiotic, instead of Aloe.

    Be aware though, authoritative herbal reference warns against internal use of Aloe by children as it could have laxative effects (not a warning for adults). Also, there are many different types of Aloe plants, please be sure if you are using the raw plant, that you are using the Aloe Vera plant.

    Drug Reactions - Hydrocortisone - Aloe Gel may increase the ability of hydrocortisone to reduce swelling. Please make sure you see your health care provider before using Aloe with this medicine.




    Take Care!

    Because using aloe as a laxative can cause painful cramping, it is seldom chosen for this purpose specifically. If you do try it, do not exceed the recommended dosage and stop as soon as cramps set in. If you are ill or pregnant, avoid the juice altogether.
