The amazing Aloe Ferox plant

Aloe Ferox is the Grandfather of Aloes, it is only now being discovered by the modern world.

Aloe ferox is among the tallest of the more than 400 aloe species and is native to southeastern and western regions of South Africa. Compared to the more widely known Aloe vera, Aloe ferox produces 20 times more bitter sap and has higher nutrient concentrations.

Two distinct parts of the aloe plant are used medicinally. Firstly the aloe exudate (bitter sap) and secondly the mucilaginous gel from the remainder of the leaf.

The aloe bitter is best known for its use as a laxative. However, in addition to the purgative effect the anthraquinone (bitter) substance is also an antioxidant, antiviral and effective for cancer prevention.

Numerous scientific studies on aloe gel are demonstrating its analgesic, anti-inflammatory, wound healing, immune modulating and anti-tumour activities as well as antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. The aloe juice has been shown to lower cholesterol and triglycerides while demonstrating anti-diabetic activity.

Aloe’s medicinal properties can be attributed to the synergistic effect of the combined nutritional elements producing a more powerful effect than the individual components.
