Aloe Vera is a rich source of naturally-occurring nutritional substances. These components include twenty amino acids, eight enzymes, nine minerals, plant sterols, monosaccharides and polysaccharides, antioxidants, vitamins A, C, E, B complex, glycoproteins and other substances. Aloe Vera is a virtual gold mine of health-supporting phytonutrients.

Some have described the interaction of these components as similar to the synergistic workings of the instruments in an orchestra, working together for grand results.

The aloe plant is subtropical and requires a great deal of water. Most of this water is stored in a gel-like substance, referred to as “aloe gel,” within the leaves.

This gel carries the numerous water-soluble nutrients and other components throughout the plant. Think of it as the blood of the human body carrying nutrients throughout.


Aloe vera has been used since recorded history began for its health-supporting properties. Literally tonnes of aloe gel has been consumed by citizens of just about every country in the world.

Aloe’s popularity today, 25 years ago or even 4000 years ago, is proof of the plants benefits to its users. Aloe vera has been used extensively for more than four thousand years and has sparked much interest more recently within the scientific community.

The Aloe family includes over two hundred closely related plant species. The plant has leaves which can grow up to four feet in length and weigh up to five pounds each.


Aloe vera has long been used in many areas of health, both internally and externally.

Aloe has been widely used in many products for skin, hair, drinks, cosmetics, helps support energy and overall activity levels and acts as a general tonic.

Most recently, scientists are beginning to understand that Aloe vera supports healthy body collagen as well. Aloe vera has become of widespread interest to athletes, sports participants and other highly active people interested in maintaining their activity levels.

Nutritional Profile

There is no single ingredient responsible for aloe vera’s amazing health benefits.

It is believed that fifteen different compound groups of nutrients achieve this result through a synergistic effect (each ingredient taken together works far better than any single element taken by itself – like all the trace elements and minerals that make up good soil).

The main elements responsible for aloes health benefits, however, are believed to be polysaccharides, photonutrients, monosaccharides, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. In fact, aloe contains over 200 active ingredients of which the most prominent are vitamins A, C, E, B, B12, choline, folic acid and amino acids.

Amino Acids: Aloe contains 7 of the 8 essential amino acids and provides 20 of 22 amino acids required by humans.

Minerals: Aloe provides 9 essential minerals such as calcium, copper, chromium, magnesium, iron, potassium, zinc, sodium, manganese.

Phytonutrients: Natural plant growth hormones, sterols and salicyates.

Enzymes: Aloe provides 8 important enzymes.

Sugars: Monosaccharides and polysaccharides (long-chain sugar molecules that are essential to the quality and efficacy of aloe vera.
