Health Benefits of Aloe Vera, the miracle herb
Aloe Vera is universally used in many beauty products. It’s got antiviral and antibacterial properties. The green-cactus looking plant that sits out in your garden isn’t just a plant with its roots in folklore, it’s the base of a million dollar industry that extends from beauty to health drinks and diet supplements. Over time, aloe vera has seamlessly integrated itself into everything we use.
Aloe Vera for Beauty
Since the skin needs nutrition of its own, Aloe Vera, when formulated into a properly designed personal care regimen, can treat, exfoliate, restore, reveal and provide constant, impressive nutrition to the human skin. “Once you move past the slimy gel and apply it to your skin, you’ll notice how soothing and cooling it is. And it’s for these exact reasons that Ayurveda refers to aloe vera as the miracle herb that can be used to treat wounds, minor cuts, dry skin and severe burns.
Aloe Vera for Weight-Loss
Not only the beauty industry is obsessed over the benefits of aloe vera, the health industry can’t stop craving about it either. “Aloe vera can improve the effectiveness of your diet and maximise your weight-loss potential. With ample amounts of vitamins and minerals that contribute to weight-loss, as well as amino acids, enzymes and sterols, aloe vera ensures your diet, but also improves the body’s absorption and utilisation, improving overall health as well as weight-loss success.”
Aloe Vera for Hairfall
Aloe vera contains something called proteolytic enzymes which repairs dead skin cells on the scalp. It is a very good conditioner and leaves your hair all smooth and shiny. It promotes hair growth, prevents itching on the scalp, reduces dandruff and conditions your hair. “Keratin, the primary protein of hair, consists of amino acids, oxygen, carbon, and small amounts of hydrogen, nitrogen, and sulphur. Aloe vera has a chemical similar to that of keratin and it rejuvenates the hair with its own nutrients, giving it more elasticity and preventing breakage.”
