Historical Perspective of Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera has been used historically since biblical times for more than 3,500 years by many cultures from the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans to the Indian and Chinese people. The aloe plant is actually a desert lily of which there are over 200 varieties.
One of the first documented users of aloe vera was Cleopatra, who lived from 68 to 30 B.C. She is said to have used the gel on her skin as protection from the sun, and to have thought the gel helped to keep her skin young-looking. In fact, the Egyptians are believed to have used aloe vera in their embalming of bodies, among other medicinal uses.
Approximately in the year 6 B.C., Dioscorides, a Greek physician, discovered aloe vera was effective in treating a wide range of ailments, from kidney disorders and constipation to severe burns of the skin.
Today, aloe vera continues to be widely used around the world. Studies confirm that it speeds the healing processes, particularly in burns and the inflammation that accompanies them, including those from radiation. Dermatologists use it to speed healing after facial dermabrasion, which removes scars from the top layers of skin.
Aloe Vera contains numerous vitamins and minerals, enzymes, amino acids, natural sugars and agents which have been shown to be anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial. The combination and balance of the plant’s ingredients are what gives it its healing properties.
It’s health-giving properties has proven itself through thousands of years as one of the most effective healing agents available for wounds when applied topically and for overall healing and anti-inflammatory properties when taken orally. Modern technology has now facilitated the manufacturing of an exclusive, new worldwide patented extraction processing technology that produces an even far superior product. This product contains freeze-dried Aloe and GRCF-77™, a proprietary blend of 8 plant enzymes and 77 ionic-form trace minerals. Additionally, it contains up to 100 times more polysaccharides than any other Aloe or juice product on the market anywhere in the world today. Recommended dosage is 1-3 capsules in-between meals for approximately ninety days; thereafter as needed. According to its researcher and patent-holder, one capsule of Aloe Ace-Max™ is equivalent to 32 oz. of aloe juice.

I was raised by a paternal grandmother who was a natural healer and herbalist. She used aloe vera for most injuries and intestinal distress. We use to think grandma’s healing protocols were “old-fashioned and without credible evidence other than heresay”…however…we went along with them because they worked. Many many years later as I graduated from dental school and later in my natural health practice, I began using distilled aloe juice in my practice because it did just what grandma claimed it did…heal from the inside out. Now with new technology jamming all those benefits into a capsule, grandma must be looking down and unable to wipe a big smile off her face saying, “Told you so!”
