Aloe Vera, a succulent plant long heralded for its effectiveness in wound care, is a key ingredient in Mountain Ice Pain Relief Gel. Read on to learn how it can reduce joint inflammation and help you melt the pain away!
An effective anti-inflammatory substance, aloe vera inhibits cyclooxygenase, an enzyme responsible for inflammation. Many nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), including aspirin and ibuprofen, use the same mechanism for their soothing effects. Studies suggest that the polysaccharides in plants of the aloe genus are responsible for this anti-inflammatory quality, which can help alleviate the pain and inflammation of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and many different inflammatory autoimmune diseases.
Oxidative stress, the imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants, can cause cellular damage resulting in inflammation. Antioxidants can stop this damage, and this pathway is increasingly being examined as a possible prevention method against RA. Aloe vera contains numerous polyphenols, antioxidants that help to balance out free radicals and reduce this damage.
Multiple studies have indicated aloe vera's effectiveness in wound care, particularly in accelerating the healing process. Numerous substances contained in aloe vera support this function: polysaccharides increase cellular movement, promoting faster tissue regrowth, while glucomannan stimulates the growth of fibroblasts, the most common cell in our connective tissue. Wound healing becomes more difficult as we age, and we begin to bruise more easily -- aloe vera can encourage faster healing from ordinary cuts and bruises!
Heavily comprised of water, aloe vera hydrates the skin, but that's not all. Its phytosterols, naturally-occurring plant steroids, relieve itchiness and irritation while creating a moisture barrier that prevents water loss through the skin. It has also been used effectively to soothe sunburns.
Athlete's foot and other irritating, painful fungal infections have a surprising impact on older adults, largely because they're less able to attend to their foot hygiene, and this also impacts those with mobility issues. Aloe vera has been found in multiple studies to have promising antifungal properties, which can help prevent the spread of these infections.
