DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ALOE ARBORESCENS AND ALOE VERA
Aloe Arborescens is used both as an ornamental plant in gardens and as a medicinal plant.
The plant is known and used for its well-known beneficial properties, the gel used to produce our products is rich in nutrients and active ingredients that make it unique.
Aloe Vera is the type of Aloe best known on the market, as it is mainly used in cosmetics for an emollient and healing effect. This plant is more easily recognized because it has leaves much larger and richer in gel than those of Aloe Arborescens.
BENEFITS OF ALOE
Regularization of the gastrointestinal system
Thanks to its mucilages and to the action of polysaccharides, Aloe is able to fight stomach acidity, to modify the pH of gastric acids, to protect mucosa from ulcerous lesions and to calm spasms.
At intestinal level, it sedates inflammatory states, protects the walls, hydrates the bacterial flora, softens stools and promotes transit.
Draining and purifying
Aloe is increasingly used in the diet thanks to its ability to reduce adipose tissue. Its slimming efficacy is also ensured by its depurative and laxative properties, eliminating toxins and residues. In practice, it speeds up the metabolism allowing you to burn body fat more quickly and appease the sense of hunger.
The wide range of substances contained, ranging from minerals (potassium, iron, magnesium, copper, manganese, selenium) to vitamins (A, C, E, B group), from amino acids to sugars (especially acemannan), make the Aloe plant a real natural food supplement.
Immune system stimulant
To the acemannan contained in Aloe are attributed immunomodulating properties. It seems, in fact, that it acts by stimulating the activity of macrophages (cells with the role of "scavengers of the human body"), promoting the release of substances capable of enhancing the immune system and the activity of T cells (a type of lymphocyte involved in determining an adaptive immune response).
Aloe is attributed with healing properties and the ability to promote wound healing.
Acemannan, with its cell stimulating properties, allows for rapid tissue reproduction by causing an increase in collagen and connective tissue production.
Aloe is widely used in the presence of skin disorders such as burns, erythema, irritations and redness. These properties seem to be due to the content of polysaccharides (including mucilage), but not only. There could be, in fact, also the involvement of plant hormones and terpenic compounds contained in the plant.
The presence of vitamins (especially vitamin C and vitamin E) and antioxidant trace elements (manganese and selenium), as well as other substances such as proline and saponins, are able to allow the body to more effectively counteract free radicals and the effects of aging on the epidermis.
