More detailed information on “What is in Aloe Vera?” showing you what Vitamins are in Aloe Vera as well as a breakdown of the Minerals and Sugars that combine powerfully to make Aloe Vera such a potent force for good!

If you’ve already read the first page about the components of

Aloe Vera, then keep reading! But if you’re just landing here from a search engine or another part of this site, I strongly suggest you check out the first part of what is in Aloe Vera.

It gives you detailed information on the first eight of the component groups of Aloe Vera listed below.

Here is a list of what is in Aloe Vera:

  • Amino Acids
  • Anthraquinones
  • Enzymes
  • Hormones
  • Lignin
  • Salicylic Acid
  • Saponins
  • Sterols
  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Sugars

We’ve already covered the first eight component groups of Aloe Vera so now we continue with number nine, a list of what vitamins are in Aloe Vera:

9) Vitamins

Aloe Vera contains the following vitamins:

  • Vitamin A (Beta-Carotene)
  • Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)
  • Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)
  • Vitamin B3 (Niacin)
  • Vitamin B5
  • Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Choline
  • Folic Acid

Vitamins A, C and E provide Aloe Vera’s antioxidant activity and neutralise free radicals.

The “B” Vitamins and Choline are involved in amino acid metabolism, Vitamin B12 is required for the production of red blood cells, Folic Acid is required in the development of blood cells.

After detailing what vitamins are in Aloe Vera, next is a breakdown of the minerals and sugars contained in Aloe Vera:

11) Sugars

Aloe Vera contains 2 Monosaccharides:

  • Glucose
  • Fructose

They provide anti-inflammatory activity. Aloe Vera also contains Polysaccharides:

Polysaccharides are normally found in all cells of your body. However your body stops producing polysaccharides around the age of 10, after which your body relies completely on outside sources for these vital compounds.

Aloe Vera is an extremely rich source of polysaccharides such as Gluco-mannans or Polymannose, molecules of Mannose linked to molecules of Glucose. This is a polysaccharide which provides the anti-viral, immune modulating activity of Acemannan.

In discussing the components of Aloe Vera, Acemannan deserves a special mention because of the very important role it plays. It stimulates the body’s macrophages to produce Interferon and Interleukin, which stop viruses multiplying.

Macrophages are the deep cleansers of the immune system that can destroy small particles such as toxic chemicals and tumours. Acemannan also helps lubricate the joints and line the colon.

The long chain Gluco-mannans are ingested whole from the gut, not broken down like other sugars, and appear in the bloodstream in exactly the same form. This process is known as pinocytosis.

Once in the blood stream they are able to exert their immuno-regulating effect. Some of these polysaccharides are not absorbed but stick to certain cells lining the gut and form a barrier preventing absorption of unwanted material so helping to prevent a “leaking” gut syndrome.

There are probably other as of yet undiscovered components of Aloe Vera but what you have here is a detailed summary of what’s known so far!

Having covered what vitamins are in Aloe Vera, find out how the components of Aloe Vera work together ’synergistically’ to provide relief and healing for conditions as varied as X-ray burns, sun burn, diabetes and even cancer.
