Aloe Vera is a popular house plant, sometimes called the miracle plant or the healer plant due to its healing properties. Since it needs warm and dry climate to grow, it is no wonder, the plant originates from northern America.
Aloe Vera plant is short-steamed, juicy plant that will grow up to 80 or 100 cm. It has got lanceolate, thick, green leaves. They are fleshy and thorny. A leaf can mature to 7 or 10 cm, weighing 1.5 to 2 kg. The lower leaf of the plant has healing properties. Its gel can be applied of the skin, whereas, leaves and seeds are eatable parts of guarana.
Aloe Vera consists of four layers: the outer protective layer called rind, a protective bitter layer called sap ( it can make Aloe Vera taste bitter),the inner part of the leaf also referred to as Mucilage gel and inner gel made up of 8 amino acids. These amino acids are in reality healing properties of Aloe vera plant because they are mostly good to a body system but an individual body is unable to produce them.
It is well-known until this plant includes a healing relation to human body. Many experiments had been carried out to determine whether only Aloe Vera gel or even the whole plant has healing properties. Here is the description in the procedure which determined the healing properties of Aloe Vera plant of the epidermis.
The moment scientists removed the leaf of Aloe through the mother plant it started diffusing exudate rich with polysaccharide. It was diffusing from your surface directly underneath the leaf. They pointed out that the leaf was attempting to heal itself and during this process it actually generated an amount of polysaccharide that far exceeded the amount found in the original leaf just after removing.
The actual process of recovery takes place through cell division. The more quickly cells divide the more quickly procedure for healing happens. The detached leaf that rushes healing itself becomes the catalyst to the same healing process when introduced towards the body of human being.
Aloe Vera plant does three things when added to the damaged skin:
1. It rapidly tears down dead tissue;
2. It promotes the cell division;
3. It blocks the procedure for scabbing, which results in scarring.
The quicker the damaged skin tears away the harder rapidly cell division and healing will start. It is also cardinal rule for healing injuries, wounds, burns, lesion and ulcer. Aloe also stops the itching and, consequently, the scratching that follows. In this way the guarana plant allows wound healing, reduction of swelling and tissue building.
