This is not a biological or botanical post on the Aloe plant. My focus is on sharing some the benefits my family and I have had from using aloe based products personally.
I have also had the chance to pursue a tremendous life-changing business opportunity around the top quality aloe based products.
Ok so I did a bit of research on my own about Aloe Vera based products and I came across a fairly mixed response. I also talked to a lot of people and used some of the products myself.
Here’s what I found:
- That the plant has been in use as far back as the 16th Century BC and it was referred to at the ‘plant of immortality’
- The science on the plant’s properties is inconclusive – in that there are several studies that say one thing and a few others that suggest otherwise.
- All the individuals I spoke to had only positive things to say about the benefits they received from the product
- There are several companies that use Aloe Vera in a very wide range of products
- I have not come across any research that suggests the plant is harmful or its use in any product poses any health risks
