The chemical composition of this plant is amazing. Researchers from all over the world have spent years studying the benefits of this plant and affirm that it is the richest in properties, and of great biological value, of all that exist.

Today, it is known worldwide. Its history is quite old, since over the years it has been used from civilization to civilization: the Bible already spoke of aloe, in Greece it was in the herbalists of the 1st century AD, the Chinese were the first to use it, the Egyptians had aloe vera as a frequently used remedy and it is believed that the Spanish were the ones who brought aloe to America during the conquest.

In short, the medicinal virtues of this plant discovered on the African continent are well known for its high therapeutic power.

Through different biochemical analyzes, its components have been determined. It is known that its active ingredients have a high penetration capacity as well as a high antiseptic and antimicrobial power that allows it to combat viruses and bacteria that harm our body, thus its use offers extraordinary results both in its internal use. as external.

What have been determined as active ingredients in Aloe barbadensis miller, commonly known as ALOE VERA? Apart from Water, which is essential in this type of plant, the following have been determined as active ingredients:

  1. AMINO ACIDS: When we mention the proteins included in the composition of Aloe Vera, we are talking about the proteins or essential nutrients that our body needs to function as a healthy organism. 
    Proteins are made up of amino acids, at least 20 that are classified in various ways, and the most essential amino acids are just the ones that our body does not generate but are necessary, so they must be provided.
  2. ANTHRAQUINONES: Anthraquinones are tricyclic quinones derived from anthracene. In aloe the best known and with the highest proportion is ALOINE, whose main activity is that of laxative. 
    To a lesser extent, resins such as isobabaloin and acids such as aloetic, chrysophanic acid and cinnamic acid are found, all of them have bactericidal, antiviral and fungicidal properties, whose function is to neutralize toxins.
  3. ENZYMES: Enzymes act in all body tissues as catalysts for chemical reactions that the human body produces. Most are protein and promote digestion and absorption of nutrients. 
    In Aloe Vera are Catalase, Lipase and Proteolithiase, all of them responsible for promoting the digestive process and controlling the retention of water in the body. They also act as anti-inflammatories.
  4. MINERALS or TRACE ELEMENTS: Minerals or trace elements are also found in the human body and are essential for the proper functioning of the body. 
    Together with vitamins and enzymes they exert the perfect barrier against chemical reactions.
  5. MONOSACARIDES AND POLYSACCHARIDES: Any active ingredient in aloe vera stands out for its internal and external intervention. 
    Monosaccharides and mucilaginous polysaccharides are found in the pulp directly. They are simple sugars that cannot be destroyed by water, this is one of the few cases in which Aloe vera works best if we apply the leaf directly to the skin.
  6. VITAMINS: The main function of vitamins is to prevent oxidation. Like amino acids, once they are lost by the body, they must be provided to ensure their proper functioning, either through food or supplements. 
    Its main functions are to: prevent the effects of aging and its diseases, stimulate the immune system and protect the body from infections. 
    They are classified as water-soluble and fat-soluble. The water-soluble ones dissolve in water (group B and C) while the fat-soluble ones are those that dissolve in fats (groups A, D, E, and K).
