Natural Ingredients of Aloe Vera

You may be wondering what exactly are the natural ingredients of aloe vera plants that is so healing and healthful to us. A Google search can make things even more confusing, because of all the self-styled know-it-alls, and the medical people, or those who would rather sell you their drugs. I really don't want to quarrel with anyone, but I have taken time to review the natural ingredient list I had put up on my site.

The Short List of Natural Ingredients

20 minerals
12 vitamins
18 amino acids
200 active plant compounds (phytonutrients), including:


Triterpenes (a phytonutrient that lowers blood sugar)
Glyconutrients and glycoproteins
Polysaccharides, including:
Acemannan, mannose-6-phosphate polymannans
Phenolic glycosides, including Dihydrocoumarins

Physical & Chemical Ingredients

The aloe plant, is not a cactus plant as my Dad thought, but an African plant from the lily family, and a succulent. That means it attracts and holds moisture well. It, is between 99 and 99.5 per cent water, with an average pH of 4.5. The remaining solids have over 75 natural ingredients including vitamins, minerals, enzymes, sugars, anthraquinones or phenolic compounds, lignin, saponins, sterols, amino acids and salicylic acid. - Want to look at them a little closer?


The aloe plants have lots of vitamins, all except vitamin D, (sorry, I do not know why!) It does have the important antioxidant vitamins A, C and F. Vitamins B (thiamine), niacin, vitamin B2 (riboflavin), choline and folic acid are all in there too. Some researchers think there may also be a trace of vitamin B12 in the natural ingredients.


Enzymes are catalysts. The ones said to be present in aloe vera, such as amylase and lipase, can aid digestion by breaking down fats and sugars. One important enzyme, a carboxy-peptidase, inactivates bradykinins and produces an anti-inflammatory effect.


Send in Your Topics for Future Issues

If you will send in your topics for future issues of this Aloe Vera Tips & Solutions ezine, I am prepared to thank you with a free sample of an aloe vera product (see below) that I, and most others who try it - all love.

Since I have maybe too many "irons in the fire" to use an old cliche, I often find myself short of time to research and come up with new ideas. Furthermore, I'd rather write things that you would hope to find in this monthly ezine, than things that miss the mark and make you feel disappointed.

You may just hit "REPLY" - but as I already have the text of this issue, you may freely delete it so that only your reply shows in the reply email. You may submit more than one idea, but take note of my warning below about crazy ideas that are too extreme and off the purpose of this monthly publication, which is connected to my website,

What's the purpose of this publication? Well, the name gives it away; Tips and solutions for problems that can be solved with aloe vera mostly. Though I do allow some pieces on herbs as well. Aloe vera is often categorized as an herb too.

Naturally, besides your topic suggestions, or questions you would like to see answered, you will need to include your name and mailing address so I know where to send the sample to. I assure you it will not be added to any other list, or used for other purposes.

I Recommend - Aloe Heat Lotion as a Prize!

I flew to Toronto, Canada, for my uncle's funeral a couple of weeks ago (Aug. 17th). I stayed with my favourite Aunt Jean for the weekend and it was like the old times when I lived in London and drove to Toronto several times a year for a weekend. I was proud of Aunt Jean, for she has lost 70 lbs in the last 2 years, and she had been driving across that huge city several times a week to visit her brother Bill, and his wife, Eunice in a nursing home. At her age, (which I'm committed not to disclose), that trip, more than an hour each way was a big deal. Aunt Jean found all that freeway driving stressful, but we all know that at times in our life we have to do things - never mind if they are stressful.

She told me of some aches and pains she had, mostly in her knees and feet. So I pulled out of my purse some little sample packets of Aloe Heat Lotion. This is a product I'm selling as a Forever Living business owner, and it is my most favourite product - (well, aside from the one aloe juice with the bits of peaches in it) - and it is the one I sell most often to my regular customers. I told her that I had intended to bring her a whole tube of Aloe Heat Lotion, but was afraid it would not be allowed on the airplane. However, if she liked this stuff I could mail her some in a package.

Well, she tried it that night, and the next day told me that this stuff really worked as I'd described. Only a tiny bit smeared and rubbed a bit over the painful spots on her knee and the pain had just evaporated! The effect lasted through the night. I usually carry a few in my purse in case I meet a stranger and this topic comes up. Before I left I gave Aunt Jean all the samples I had with me. I've sent her a tube of Aloe Heat Lotion now that I'm home again.

I'm willing to send you a sample packet by snail mail if you will contribute at least one or two suggestions for topics I could cover in future issues of the Aloe Vera Tips & Solutions ezine. They should be reasonable topics. Not crazy ideas that are too far off the goal and purpose of this ezine - just because you want to fool with me. So I reserve the right to decide which ideas merit a thank you tip/gift.

I'll invest the postage to send you a small sample packet. I'll be especially thrilled if you write back to tell me what you think of it.
