Aloe Vera: Its Use and Benefits for Our Lives

aloe-vera-277948_960_720We have seen many products in our lives that use Aloe Vera as one of its main ingredients such as in alimentary products and in beauty industry. There have been many people consuming Aloe Vera or using this amazing plant to protect their health and beauty. And they don’t do it for no reason.

Many researches around the world have found and proven what Aloe Vera can contribute to our lives. Either it is for the health of our body, our skin or even our hair, there is no doubt about its benefits. For example, the first one, this plant is famously known to be able to cure sunburn and heal wounds.

However, this particularly unique looking plant is wonderful not only in treating sunburn, irritation and wounds on skin but also in many other things. Various vitamins and minerals exist inside Aloe Vera, including vitamin A, C, E, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, folic acid, choline, calcium, magnesium, zinc, chromium, selenium, sodium, iron, potassium, copper and manganese; which are advantageous to our body.

In addition to vitamins and minerals, Aloe Vera also has useful amino and fatty acids for health. This plant is recognised for its ability to have immunity against illnesses and to adapt our body to external factors. Beside healing outer wounds, this plant can also heal wound inside the body, like stomach ulcer, mouth ulcer and provide anti-inflammatory properties.

Other than for getting health benefits, Aloe Vera also helps to protect our beauty. It is not uncommon to see this plant in the ingredients of many beauty care products for hair and skin. Aloe Vera can moisturise skin, lips and hair fast, thanks to the vitamin E contained in it. It is excellent for any type of skin and hair without exception. For the hair, it is good as moisturiser but also efficient in improving hair growth and reducing dandruff.

I remember when I was still in Indonesia, I always diligently used Aloe Vera gel (since my mom grows the plant) as face and hair mask around twice or thrice a week. The results were just surprisingly good. Not that I’m boasting, but it indeed helped a lot to maintain the health of my hair and face skin.

For people who want to have anything natural for body care, hair care and health care; they surely must consider to start growing this plant and see the magic it can do. Just try it and I can assure you, satisfaction guaranteed 🙂
