For thousands of years, the aloe vera plant has been considered a true miracle cure, and today aloe is called the "queen of medicinal plants". Among other things, it strengthens the immune system, is effective against inflammation and pain and is antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral.
The story begins many thousands of years ago. Thus, Sumerian clay tablets made by people about 4000 years ago already provided the first written evidence of the amazing powers of a certain plant from the genus Aloe (Aloe) in the subfamily of the asphodel family. Of course, we are talking about the true aloe, known worldwide as aloe vera.
"Even in ancient Egypt, aloe vera was considered a source of health, beauty and immortality. The legendary ancient Egyptian beauties Nefertiti and Cleopatra, among others, used the aloe plant daily to care for their skin and support their physical well-being. In Greece, it was none other than the physician Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, who convinced people of the beneficial properties of aloe. He administered it against ulcers, hair loss and gastrointestinal complaints," says Natura Vitalis founder Frank Felte (www.naturavitalis.de).
The company from Essen has long been considered one of the leading manufacturers of natural food supplements and places the highest value on continuous further and new developments of health products on a scientific basis. With "Lipo Aloe", the company, which has won several international awards, has developed a high-dose aloe vera product line (Lipo Aloe).
"Lipo Aloe" is a highly concentrated extract that Natura Vitalis have additionally refined with the innovative liposomal technology. Liposomes are microscopically tiny hollow spheres that encapsulate an active ingredient and transport it through the body in a protected way. This encapsulation allows an almost complete absorption into the human organism. The reason: The tiny liposome spheres consist of phospholipids (compounds of fatty acids and phosphoric acids). These are completely natural compounds that are found in every human body cell. Due to the fact that liposomes are made of the same material as our body cells, the body recognises them as a "good" substance and allows a regular fusion with human cells.
According to Frank Felte, the 100-millilitre bottle contains the active ingredient content of about 7.5 litres of classic aloe vera drinking gel. "The application is done directly via the spray head of the bottle. The taste is sweetish and neutral. We only use the aloe vera gel that is present inside the leaves. It has no side effects, but nearly 200 valuable ingredients, including high-quality amino acids, vitamins and secondary plant substances."
It is no coincidence that aloe is now known and sought after almost everywhere in the world as the "queen of medicinal plants". Among other things, the plant's gel helps to strengthen the white blood cells and the immune system. It is effective against inflammation and pain. It is alkaline and helps with heartburn and balances the body's acid-base balance. It is antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral. Especially the knowledge that aloverose can block different forms of viruses is nowadays also used by the pharmaceutical industry. Furthermore, the combination of active ingredients in aloe gel strengthens the entire cardiovascular system, supports healthy blood sugar levels and has a purifying effect.
"We like to look into the history of natural medicine and believe that we can find many exciting treasures that can still support us today in maintaining health and promoting well-being. And with aloe vera gel, we use a very special natural substance that has been proving its effectiveness for thousands of years," emphasises Frank Felte.
