This succulent plant of the Aloe genus (also called Aloe barbadensis) is native to the southwestern United States. Around the world, it grows wild in tropical, semi-tropical, and arid climates.


Throughout history, aloe vera has been used in many different traditional healing systems (Ayurveda, Chinese, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, etc.), dating back several thousand years.


In addition to polysaccharides, vitamins, enzymes, minerals, and phenolic compounds, the fleshy leaves contain a clear gel (the juice is made from this gel) that is loaded with hundreds of bioactive compounds that are responsible for the multifunctional properties of Aloe.


Water and aloe polysaccharides are the main components of the gel, as well as many antioxidants, including *-tocopherol (vitamin E), ascorbic acid (vitamin C), carotenoids, flavonoids and tannins. Today's oral Aloe vera products support skin, digestive, immune, and metabolic health [1,2].
