is a member of the tree lily family, know as Aloe barbadensis Miller. Originally native to Africa, aloes are now found in many places throughout the world. There are more than 300 documented varieties of aloes, 170 of which are found in South Africa. Aloes have been cultivated for many years with the cape aloe (aloe ferox) and the snake aloe (aloe broomii) being depicted on a South African rock more than 250 years ago. Temple paintings from Ancient Kemet illustrated aloe vera used medicinally and a part of the embalming formula. Europe used it in the 10th century and China during the 11th century.
According to Ayurvedic Medicine, since Aloe Vera is the coolest plant on the planet, drinking Real Aloe Vera ® juices and gel will chill the body from summer heat and humidity nourishing you with over 39 essential vitamins, 47 macro and trace minerals, and all 23 amino acids. In fact, Aloe Vera is the only plant of approximately 150,000 botanicals that contain this many nutrients that are essential to life’s existence. Educational research and clinical trials support aloe vera’s anti-inflammatory and healing qualities. Please read the article, ALOE VERA is "Truly Healing"! for further explanation and information on how aloe works in the body.
It's great for anyone working and playing outdoors outside in the heat: 30-minute workouts, athletes during two-a days workouts and Off Season Training Activities (OTAs), roofers, painters, landscapers, gardeners, runners, walkers, hikers, campers, fishermen, tailgaters, etc.
I personally use products that are 100% certified ORGANIC ALOE VERA, KOSHER, VEGAN Certified, 100% GROWN and MANUFACTURED in the U.S.A. vs. aloe vera grown and imported from Korea, Taiwan, China and Mexico. By using the traditional "Inner Leaf"Hand-Fillet inner gel containing most of the beneficial parts of the plant, it is as close to "straight from the plant" as the preservation process allows. As an excellent internal tonic for energy and well-being, personally, I find it convenient to partake of this ALOE VERA JUICE, FLAVORED JUICE or GEL upon waking and with meals. The nutritional benefits of incorporating aloe vera have naturally become a part of my daily consumption, adding greatly to the strength of my blood, digestive tract, skin and overall good health and happiness.
