Aloe vera contains polysaccharides that strengthen immunity and help the immune system to do its job properly. Aloe also contains polyphenols, which fight against numerous degenerative diseases – for example, osteoporosis.
Prevents inflammation in the body
Whether you drink aloe vera gel or apply it to your skin, this substance is a very effective anti-inflammatory. It inhibits the cyclooxygenase pathway and reduces the production of prostaglandin E2 from arachidonic acid. Moreover, since inflammation is usually caused by oxidative damage from free radicals, aloe vera acts as an antioxidant that fights free radicals.
For this reason aloe vera is one of the most commonly used products for various skin conditions – dryness, eczema, psoriasis, burns, sun damage, insect bites, etc.
The anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects of aloe vera gel are related. Local application of aloe vera gel on painful areas affected by degenerative changes prevents and reduces inflammation.

Stabilizes blood sugar
Losing weight, eating a healthy diet and being physically active can help reduce the risk of diabetes and improve blood sugar levels. But there are also studies that point to the benefits of aloe vera in glycemic control.
Aloe vera improved glycemic control in people with prediabetes and type 2 diabetes when taken orally, as juice. It lowered fasting plasma glucose levels in those with prediabetes and significantly improved A1C in people being treated for type 2 diabetes. The researchers hypothesized that the association was due to aloe vera’s ability to reduce glucose absorption and production in the gastrointestinal tract.
One of the most well-known benefits of aloe vera is its ability to facilitate good digestion and proper bowel function. Aloe has been proven to help with constipation, but aloe vera’s healing and soothing properties are also beneficial for other digestive problems such as heartburn, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and leaky gut.
Cleans the intestinal villi

Adaptogens like aloe vera help your adrenal glands deal with internal and external stressors in a gentle, steady manner, rather than a sudden burst of cortisol, the stress hormone. This helps balance your mood and energy levels and reduces your overall stress level.
Protects against increased UV radiation
Aloe gel is usually used to treat the skin after sun exposure. It is known to be effective in the treatment of sunburn, inflammation and redness, but many do not know that this gel can also be used for sunbathing, as it blocks up to 20% of UV radiation.
Apply aloe vera gel under the sunscreen to enhance its effect and additionally hydrate the skin, or use it alone, but then renew it as often as possible.
Stimulates collagen production and delays aging
Aloe vera is a common ingredient in skin care products facial skin care, from moisturizers to face masks – and for good reason. The gel has moisturizing properties, which successfully fight against aging. In addition, aloe vera has a large number of mucopolysaccharides, a moisturizing molecule that maintains moisture in the skin (hyaluronic acid also belongs to mucopolysaccharides).
It also activates fibroblasts (a type of cell found in connective tissue), which increase the production of collagen and elastin fibers. The result can be tighter skin and fewer wrinkles.
