Aloe’s healing history: from Proverbs to Pharmacology:
For as long as people have been trying to settle their stomachs, soothe a burn, or treat an ulcer, Aloe has been used for healing. According to ancient clay tablets, the Sumerians used it, the Egyptians had at least 12 formulations for both internal and external healing, and it is mentioned five times in the Bible. Luckily, today we can rely on modern science, instead of just the poetic Proverbs, to reveal how and why Aloe vera works so well.
- support healthy immune function*
- help maintain healthy bones, teeth, and skin*
- Aloe vera for oral and gastrointestinal health*
Aloe vera has been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine, both topically and orally, for skin care, dietary supplements and herbal beverages. While you may be most familiar with Aloe vera as a salve for sunburn, taken orally, it promotes gastrointestinal health* and contains powerful antioxidants.
When you add vitamin C to Aloe vera, you get a new combination with significant benefits. A recent study conducted by Dr. Joe Vinson at Scranton University concluded that consuming vitamin E or vitamin C with Aloe vera increased the half-life of the vitamin in blood plasma. This research suggests that you can increase the bioavailability of vitamin C when it is combined with Aloe vera.*
Vitamin C is a nutritional star on its own. While no one claims it can cure the common cold, it may help you feel a whole lot better by reducing a cold’s severity and duration.* In fact, one study showed vitamin C reduced the duration of a common cold by 21%, while another found it reduced both the severity and length of respiratory infections in a group of marathon runners.*
But the vitamin C story doesn’t end there. Other studies show that vitamin C may protect against free radical damage to the eye lens. An ongoing nurse’s health study found that women using vitamin C supplementation long-term had healthier eyes and a 77% lower risk of eye problems, compared to women who did not take the supplement. Of course, it is important to eat a healthy diet, too. Remember to eat plenty of vitamin C-rich foods like kale, spinach and oranges.
