Aloe Facts —

Aloe Vera plants include some 300 varieties, of these it is the Aloe Barbadensis Miller (Aloe Vera) the most potent that has been of most use to man. It originated in Africa and now has spread across the world wherever it has found sunny dry climates with no frost. Bearing a similarity to a cactus plant it is actually a member of the lily family and is related to onions, garlic and asparagus.

Aloe has been used since recorded history as one of the most beneficial plants on earth as it contains more than 75 known active ingredients that have been identified to date. Nicknames around the world include medicine plant, miracle plant, silent healer, wand of heaven or burn plant to name but a few.

Forever Living Products was founded in 1978, and is the largest producer of aloe vera products in the world. It is distributed in over 140 countries, with a last recorded turnover in excess of $2.5 billion. To ensure there is always sufficient Aloe to meet worldwide demand for the products, Forever has thousands of acres of plantations in the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.

Forever also produces the world’s largest supply of bee products, sourced in the pollution-free Sonoran desert, high in Arizona, where there are no pesticides and pollutants. Patented equipment is used to gather and preserve the ingredients, in the conditions nature intended, bringing natural and nutritionally rich products from the hives directly to you.

Forever Living have patented the stabilisation process. In other words their Aloe Vera is harvested without damaging any of the active ingredients and by adding only natural stabilisers. The leaves are harvested by hand and washed and filleted to remove the exterior rind. The inner gel is then collected in stainless steel vats for stabilisation. This process is critical to the patented stabilisation process that prevents the loss of Aloe’s nutrients and other important elements. Forever use only the inner gel – not whole leaf. This clear inner gel contains Aloe’s most beneficial ingredients and leaves the natural balance of ingredients undisturbed.

Just enough natural harvest ingredients are added to the 100% inner gel that are required to stabilise it, declaring it as being "essentially identical to the raw gel" by the Food and Drink Laboratories of New York. It was tested as being the same as 99% day one fresh and hence the benefit to the consumer.

There are no pesticides or artificial additives in any of the FLP products, and the company prides itself on a totally eco-friendly productive cycle even down to the waste part of the plant being ploughed back into the very fields from where it was harvested.

Forever Living holds several essential patents for the stabilisation of Aloe Vera. Prior to the existence of these patents, the potency and benefits of stabilised Aloe Vera did not exist. Rest assured that you will be unable to find any other Aloe products anywhere else in the world that have the same health and nutritional benefits as Forever Living Products.

Aloe Vera works in two main areas, firstly on body surfaces, (referred to as the epithelial tissue) and secondly on the immune system, and it is remarkably effective in both these areas, however, it is not a panacea or “cure all."

In skin conditions, (due to its ability to heal damaged skin), it has been used with great success for eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, and acne. In fungal infections such as athletes foot and ringworm aloe vera contains properties which kill fungi and yeasts.

In disorders of the immune system, aloe has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect when ingested (drunk) and as a result such conditions as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and irritable bowel syndrome have all been demonstrated as being significantly improved.
