Aloe vera is one of the world’s oldest medicinal plants, honoured for centuries by doctors and healers as a powerful first-aid herb capable of working truly great miracles. Aloe vera is also considered a source of youthful beauty and radiance. But what is the healing power of aloe, when and how to use it, and why choose freeze-dried powder made from aloe gel? We’ll tell you all about it in the post below.
Aloe vera as a powerful antiviral food treatment
Aloe has a strong antiviral and antibacterial properties, being able to destroy a wide range of pathogens and, thanks to the powerful combination of beta-carotene and lignin, remove radiation from the body. Aloe vera also contains more than 70 powerful trace elements and is rich in antioxidants, enzymes and vitamins A, C and E, which have an overall strengthening effect on the body. In addition, the mineral content of aloe vera is truly impressive – it is rich in zinc, calcium, chromium, copper, selenium, magnesium, manganese, potassium and sodium. With such nutritional value, aloe has earned the title of superfood. However, according to several studies, aloe vera gel also hides an anti-allergy compound called glycoprotein alprogen.
Aloe takes care of gut health
Aloe vera quickly soothes irritated bowels, providing effective relief from ulcers, haemorrhoids, gastritis, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation and other digestive problems. According to Anthony William, the esteemed Medical Medicum, aloe is also incredibly powerful in preventing tumours, destroying the pathogens that cause colon, stomach and rectal cancers, and stopping the growth of polyps.
Increases physical endurance
Aloe takes care of cardiovascular health, lowers high cholesterol levels and protects the body from oxidative stress, thereby increasing the body’s physical endurance. For this reason, aloe vera is an excellent addition to the diet of athletes.
Aloe vera acts as an anti-inflammatory antioxidant in the body, providing effective protection against damage caused by free radicals. Aloe vera gel also provides effective relief from sunburn, skin rashes, insect bites and scratches, and helps to prevent the formation of wrinkles by keeping the skin hydrated. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, aloe also provides relief from joint pain and arthritis.
Why prefer freeze-dried Aloe vera powder?
As the freeze-drying process is carried out at a very low temperature (below 40 degrees), all the beneficial properties of the aloe powder are preserved and none of the vitamin minerals are destroyed in the process. During the freeze-drying process, the aloe gel is simply separated from the water, resulting in a concentrated 200:1 extract, which means that 1 gram of powder equals 200 grams of raw aloe vera leaf gel. Therefore, only half a teaspoon of powder is needed to prepare a glass of aloe vera water. In addition, you can also be sure of the quality of the powder because aloe powder is always made from only the highest quality raw materials and without any additives.
How to use aloe powder?
Freeze-dried aloe powder can be used to make flavoured water or as a healthy addition to smoothies and juices. The powder has a pleasant taste, perfectly complementing a variety of sweet smoothies with a delicately sour note. However, it is also ideal for summer ice-cream drinks and for making a healing face mask.
