This diversity is that Forever Living Products cultivates, in privately owned plantations in America, Mexico and the Dominican Republic.

The aloe gel contains over 75 known ingredients. But what makes Aloe Vera unique, is the combination of them. Scientists have tried to \'create\' in the laboratory this combination without success. The natural laboratory inside the plant seems to have the exclusive patent.

Major antioxidant vitamins necessary to fight free radicals and boost the immune system Specifically.
Vitamin A, helps in proper functioning of vision, contributes to the proliferation and the health of the cells of the body, keeps the skin healthy.
Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is involved in collagen synthesis, is thus very important to restore connective tissue, bone and cartilage, as well as in wound healing. It also helps in proper absorption of iron in the prophylaxis of infections, fever, colds and has anticancer activity.
Vitamin E, is regarded as the vitamin of fertility and beauty. Helps produce red blood cells and recent research show that it can helps against degeneration of mental abilities, especially of memory.

Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, including folic acid and choline. Vitamin B1, helps in proper functioning of the nervous and cardiovascular system, skin and in the proper metabolism of carbohydrates.
Vitamin B2, helps in proper functioning of the intestinal system, in rapid healing of wounds, in good vision.
Vitamin B3, helps in proper functioning of the nervous system and endocrine glands. It also helps maintain normal blood glucose levels.
Vitamin B6, helps the formation of hemoglobin, the synthesis of antibodies.
Vitamin B12, helps in the formation of red blood cells, is essential for proper brain function and composition of DNA. Great lack of vitamin B12, leads to anemia. Strict vegetarians may lack B12.
The role that has folic acid in the body is very important. It’s necessary for the creation of the new cells, for the synthesis of DNA and RNA. Also, is necessary for the metabolism of proteins.
Folic Acid is especially important for pregnant women or those who wish to become pregnant.
Choline, is essential for proper liver function. Specifically needed for extracting the fat from the liver, cause without choline, fats are trapped in the liver, where block metabolism.

Metal Salts

Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Sodium. Copper, Iron, Chromium, Zinc, Manganese.
Calcium, is not just about bones and the skeleton, is also essential for heart function, muscle and brain.
The Manganese, takes part in the production of energy from food. It is also necessary for the functioning of hormones in the thyroid gland as well as for nervous system function.
Magnesium, is very important for the nerves, muscles, heart, bones and the metabolism of proteins and glucose. In many cases, the shortage is manifested by fatigue, nerve or muscle cramps.
Potassium and sodium are minerals with many important roles in the human body. Potassium is associated with a significantly reduced risk for stroke and cardiovascular disease. The reason that potassium reduces cardiovascular risk seems to be the effect on blood pressure. Potassium helps to lower high blood pressure and helps in the treatment of hypertension.
Copper, makes the iron capable of operating as a carrier of oxygen in red blood cells.

Zinc, supports a healthy immune system, is required for wound healing, helps those who have trouble sleeping, diarrhea, hair loss and white spots on nails. It is essential for reproduction in both men and women.
Iron, carries oxygen to body tissues. It is also associated with important biochemical processes to produce energy.


Lysine, Threonine, Valine, Methionine, Isoleucine, Fainylanine, Tryptophan, Arginine, Asparaginic Acid, Serine, Glutamic Acid, Glycine, Alanine, Tyrosine, Histidine, Proline, erdoxyproline, Cystine, Leucine.
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. The body needs 23 main amino acids, 8 essential and 15 non-essentials. The liver synthesizes non-essential, but the rest must be taken from external sources. The juice of Aloe Vera, contains all essential amino acids, which are not produced by the body


Oxidase, Catalase, Amylase, Vradykinase, Celloulase, Lipase, Alaninase, Phosphatase, Creatinine phosphokinase, Ydrogonase.

For any function of our body, we need the appropriate enzymes. Help in breaking the food and therefore indigestion.


Accemannan, arabinose, galactose, glucose, mannose, Rhamnose, xylose, glucuronic acid, Galakturonic Acid, Cellulose

Until Adolescence, the Acemannan is produced by the body but then, must be taken with food. The Acemannan is stored in all cell membranes and thus achieve the immune empowerment of all body against pathogenic parasites, viruses and bacteria. The Acemannan ensure that there is sufficient fluid in the joints, may prevent arthritis (or if it is on rise, to obtain relief) and supports the absorption of water and nutrients during digestive process.


Campesterol, Lupeol, Beta-Sitosterol, Cholesterol

These plant steroids are important anti-inflammatory factors.

Furthermore, aloe contains:
Malic acid, lignine, saponine, Salicylic Acid, Essential oils, Beta-carotene, Chaline

The saponins, are natural substances with anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and cleansing properties and powerful anti-microbial activity against bacteria, viruses, fungi and zymofungi and also stimulate the immune system.

Essential oils, are antiseptic, bactericidal and have the potential to act against viruses. There are no side effects and germs do not develop resistance to them.

Salicylic acid, is the main ingredient of aspirin, which has a painkiller action.
