History of Aloe Ferox
Aloe ferox is among the tallest of the more than 400 aloe species and is native to southeastern and western regions of South Africa. It's similar to the more widely known Aloe vera, but has many times more nutritional and medicinal value than Aloe vera. One of the most wonderful things about the Aloe Ferox, contrary to Aloe vera which is mostly cultivated on farms, is that it is harvested directly from the wild in its natural state. This ensures that plants have not been treated with pesticides, fertilizers or any chemical additives and are absolutely pure and organically grown. There is more than enough of this renewable resource to ensure that it does not need to be cultivated.
The healing properties of aloe have been known for millennia. The use of aloe was discovered on a Mesopotamian clay tablet (ca. 2100 BC). Aloes were listed in the Ebers papyrus (ca. 1500 BC) as an established cathartic. Legend has it that aloe was an important part of the beauty regimen of the Egyptian queens, Nefertiti and Cleopatra. Alexander the Great (356–323 BC) was persuaded by Aristotle to capture the island of Socrota in the Indian Ocean to secure its aloe supplies to treat his wounded soldiers (Bruce 1975).
In an era where more and more people are turning towards natural remedies, the natural Cape Aloe Ferox from South Africa is building up its' name as one of the top natural remedies for a variety of skin conditions and various medical ailments. Testimonials from grateful users telling how the products have helped them with a variety of complaints from arthritis, burns, eczema, psoriasis, digestive problems, enlarged prostate, blood pressure problems and many more.
Aloe ferox’s medicinal properties can be attributed to the synergistic effect of the gel polysaccharides combined with the other nutritional elements found in the leaf juice producing a more powerful effect than the individual components.
