Red Aloe Vera
Red Aloe Vera is one of the tallest single stemmed aloes. It is most famous for its medicinal qualities, provided by the golden-brown sap of the leaves. The bitter yellow juice found just below the skin has been harvested as a renewable resource for 200 years in South Africa. The botanical name of this plant has been concealed for business purpose.
Red Aloe Vera is about 22 times more powerful than common Aloe Vera, as it has higher nutrient concentrations. The amino acid content of Red Aloe Vera is double to that of common Aloe Vera. Like the common Aloe Vera, Red Aloe Vera products are 100% safe to use.
Red Aloe Vera leaf contains substances such as amino acids, minerals, vitamins, polysaccharides, glycoprotines, anthraquinones, enzymes, lignin, chlorophyll, saponins, sterols and other plant chemicals with numerous medical activities. Red Aloe Vera contains a total of 34 amino acids, including 7 of the 8 essential ones.
The following are the amino acids found in Red Aloe Vera:
Alanine, Asarine, Arginine, Aspartic acid, Asparagine, Citrulline, Cystine, Ethnolamine, Glutamic acid, Glutamine, Glycine, Histidine, Hydroxyproline, Isoleucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Phosphoserine, Proline, Serine, Threonine, Tyrosine, Ureum, Valine, 1-Methylhistidine, 3-Alanine, 4-amino-buteric, 6 unknown
Protines are made up of smaller units called amino acids, which are the building material of the body. They are vital for grown and repair of the body. They are used to make hormones, enzymes, antibodies and neurotransmitters, and help transport substances around the body
Besides the above Amino acids, Red Aloe Vera also contains the following essentail chemicals:
Chlorophyll : Chlorophyll may stimulate the production of red blood cells in bone marrow. It protect against cancer and certain forms of radiation. It acts as a purifier, anti-ceptic and antibiotic. It is a powerful wound healer.
Glycoproteins : Glycoproteins act as anti-tumor and anti-inflammatory agent. It possesses phagocytic activity. It can also stimulate fibroblast to increase collagen and proteoglycans.
Glycosides : Saponins, Phenols, Anthraquinones, Aloin A/B (Barbaloin), Aloe-emodin, Aloinside A/B, 5-hydroxyaloin A, Chrysophanol, Aloesin, Aloe resin A/C, Iso- Aloeresin, Furoaloesone, Chrysophanic acid, Cinnamic acid, Emodin, Coumarins, Resistannols
These are antibacterial, anti-microbial, Anti-parasite, Anti-inflammatory, Analgesic, Anti-viral, anti-fungal yeast and laxative. They show immune stimulating actions, they appear to aid absorption from the gut, typically they can absorb ultra-violet light and reduce the formation of melanin and any tendency to hyper-pigmentation.
Minerals: Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorous, (phosphate), Sodium, Chloride, Potassium, Sulphur. Trace minerals includes Arsenic, Boron, Chromium, Cobalt, Copper, Iron, Manganese, Nickel, Selenium, Strontium, Tin, Vanadium and Zinc.
All minerals work together as a collective whole. A deficiency of one mineral may disrupt the entire chain of life, rendering other nutrients either useless or inefficient. Minerals are catalysts that make enzymes functions possible. The acid-base balance (pH) of the tissue fluid is controlled by minerals. Trace minerals are also an essential part of hormone structures.
Saccharides: These are divided into Mono-saccharides, Poly-saccharides & Sterols
Mono-saccharides: Rhamnose, Arabinose, Xylose, Mannose, Galactose, and Glucose.
Mono-saccharides are anti-bacterial, Fungicidal, Anti-viral, Anti-parasitic. They enhance wound healing, decreases inflammation; can accelerate the process of cellular communication and healing, inhibit tumor growth and spread. They are necessary for the production of cytokines, the chemicals in the body that fight invaders. They ease inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis, lower blood sugar and triglyceride levels in diabetics.
Poly-saccharides: Arabinogalactans, Rhamnogalacturorans, Glucomannoglycans, Hemicelluloses
They lower high cholesterol levels in humans. They possess anti-tumor activity. They are anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic. They balance immune activity. They help to suppress over activity. They reduce blood sugar in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. They act as intracellular anti-oxidants and free radical scavengers. They help in curing arteriosclerosis, heart disease, Parkinson’s disease. They have Pre-probiotic effect (activity encouraging the growth and replacement of friendly gastro intestinal bacteria), and controls chronic yeast growth.
Sterols: Siterol, Cholesterol, Lupeol
These are anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, anti-pyretic, anti-neoplastic, analgesic and are immune-modulating. They control blood sugar in the body. They have anti-microbial activity and reduce carcinogen-induced cancer of the colon in rats; effective against allergies and allergic reactions.
Fiber: Fibers are classified into Insoluble fibers and Soluble fibers
Insoluble fibers: cellulose and lignin .These fibers increases stool bulk, promotes laxation, decreases incidents of colon cancer, and improves symptoms of irritable colon.
Soluble fiber: Arabinogalactan, Rhamnogalacturonan, Mucilage . These show beneficial effect on attacks of hyperglycaemia and blood pressure. They also reduce coronary heart risk.
Vitamins: Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)
Vitamins are necessary for normal metabolism and good health. Vitamins serve as chemical partners for the enzymes involved in the body’s metabolism, cell production, tissue repair and other vital processes.
