Worldwide, millions of people already consume Aloe Vera regularly. Some want to maintain or improve their health, others use Aloe Vera for cosmetic purposes as Aloe Vera contributes excellently to skin regeneration. It is an extraordinary anti-aging agent, from within and from outside.
Aloe Vera contains essential amino acids, minerals and trace elements, vitamins, enzymes, phytochemicals, mono and polysaccharides and biological stimulators.
The most important ingredient found in pure and unadulterated form in the Aloe Vera, the full carbon hydrate called Acemannan, is certainly crucial. It consists of a long sugar molecule chain and a central protein unit. The human body can only produce Acemannan until puberty. It is deposited in the membranes of whole cells of the body. Due to its antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial properties it provides improved cellular metabolism, strengthens the immune system and protects the bone marrow and leucocytes (white blood cells).
When deposited in the cell wall, Acemannan facilitates the transport of nutrients into the cell and when it leaves the cell, it releases toxins. Acemannan is an important component of joints, tendons, cartilage and ligaments which keeps the joints well lubricated. It dilates narrowed blood vessels and thus ensures better blood circulation.
Acemannan is the efficient immune stimulator.
Aloe Vera is an ingredient in many beauty products as it penetrates the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis and cleanses the pores of fatty deposits, dirt and bacteria. It provides the skin with biological vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes and therefore stimulates the growth of new cells. With regular use, it can therefore greatly reduce premature wrinkles.
