Although the plant most closely resembles a cactus, it belongs to the order Asparagales and is not related to cacti.
Aloe vera plants grow in a closed cluster of posy, lance-shaped leaves. The leaves, which can grow up to 50 cm long, are rosette-like and arranged around the trunk. The leaves have a smooth surface and a jagged edge. When flowering, the plant produces a cluster of 60-90 cm yellowish-red flowers.
The sap of Aloe vera contains many enzymes, minerals, essential fatty acids and amino acids. Most of the sap of the plant is made up of so-called mucopolysaccharides, which are also found in the space between human cells.
Mucopolysaccharides act as the "mortar" between our cells. Because they are constantly renewed, they destroy toxins produced in our bodies or toxins that have been introduced and deposited by the outside world. Recent scientific research has demonstrated the stimulating effect of this polysaccharide on the immune system, so it is no wonder that Aloe vera is called the gift of Venus. It strengthens cell walls and has a natural cleansing and regenerating effect on the and regeneration of the body. It also stimulates the immune system, making us less susceptible to various diseases. And if we do get sick, it helps us recover more quickly. Aloe also plays an important role in beauty care (keeping our skin as smooth as new) and is therefore highly valued in cosmetics.
Forever products, which are intended to be introduced into the body, are for internal use, as pure food or as dietary supplements.
They also promote skin renewal and can even slow down ageing due to the effectiveness of their active ingredients. It has also been shown to be a popular treatment for burns due to its soothing, anaesthetic properties, which can be easily applied to the wounded area due to its gel-like content.
There are many ways to use it, you can apply it inside or outside, it is a win-win situation. My personal favorite is when applied directly to damaged skin, it produces an almost eye-appealing, rapid improvement. It removes and reduces acne, wounds (so it can be used on injuries too, it helps them to regenerate), scars, and it also cleanses, refreshes and restores suppleness to the skin, not to mention anti-inflammatory.
However, it is much more effective when taken internally; it can be eaten raw (of course it tastes a bit bitter, so don't expect a gastronomic experience), but it can also be mixed in drinks (it can be a tea or a smoothie of some kind).
Can be used externally and internally! The variety of ways it works, according to a scientific study, are:
