For some this means weight loss but not for all. Note that many recovering from Anorexia find Aloe Vera actually helps them with weight gain.

As such Aloe Vera on its own is not promoted a great deal for its weight loss potential although it is highly recommended as part of a 'calorie controlled diet' as it contains virtually no calories but does have a large number of nutrients.

Can I use Aloe Vera for skin problems?

Many people do. It is used, for example, in hot countries where it grows naturally to heal sunburn because of its anti-inflammatory properties.

Aloe Vera has also anti-fungal and anti-bacterial so it is a popular remedy for afflictions such as athlete’s foot.

It has also been reported that it accelerates the rate at which cells divide (50-100% faster than naturally occurs) and hence why many use it for cuts, wounds and other types of burns.

It should be noted that how well it works depends on the quality of the aloe vera. Even in its natural form if the plant is too immature it will not have much potency. And in its packaged form that very much depends on the brand.

The main part of the aloe vera plant used is the leaf, which can be processed in two different ways to produce aloe vera juice. The different processing procedures are described below:

Aloe vera leaf juice

Aloe vera leaf juice is made by taking entire aloe vera leaves and grinding them up via some type of maceration. Typically some enzymatic treatment is used (such as cellulose) to break down the rind and heavier-weight materials, and then the resulting slurry is filtered, usually with charcoal filtration, to remove any other unwanted materials such as the aloe latex (yellow, bitter tasting exudate that is a powerful laxative). The remainder is aloe vera leaf juice.

Aloe vera inner leaf juice

Aloe vera inner leaf juice is made by removing the rind prior to processing, either by machine or by hand, and then rinsing away the aloe latex. The remaining, gelatinous inner-leaf material is then ground/crushed into aloe vera inner leaf juice.

Trikatu Extract

How is Trikatu helpful?

According to Ayurveda, one of the main causes of every ailment in the body is vikrit Agni meaning improper digestive function. Agni (the digestive fire) is necessary for the metabolism of food in the body (the breakdown of food, which provides energy and nutrients). These nutrients when absorbed by the system boost immunity and strength and thus obstruct the microorganisms from entering the body, thereby enhancing the natural ability of the body to combat any disease. When Agni works in a proper, natural and healthy way, the digestion process and elevation work together effectively, which makes the body healthy and strong.

Experiments have found that this herbal combination of Trikatu acts as a strong stimulant, which is highly beneficial in managing a number of respiratory tract ailments like sore throat, cough, congestion and cold. Trikatu also helps in improving conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which occurs due to the buildup of toxins because of stressful lifestyle and improper digestion.

Centella asiatica

What is Vallarai (Centella asiatica) used for?

Gotu kola or Vallarai (Centella asiatica) has been used to treat many conditions for thousands of years in India, China, and Indonesia. It was used to heal wounds, improve mental clarity, and treat skin conditions such as leprosy and psoriasis.

What are the dosage instructions of Centella asiatica?

Most of the human studies (on Chronic Venous Insufficiency) on this herb have used a centella asiatica supplement two to three times a day, and at each dose the total saponin dose (asiatic acid, madecassic acid, asiaticoside, and madecassoside) has totalled 30-60 mg given a total daily range of 60-180 mg total saponins.

While there are currently no human studies on cognitive enhancement, rat studies have noted success with 200-300 mg per kilogram of the overall plant extract (since the saponins may not be the only active ingredient for cognition); this suggests a human dose of 32-48 mg/kg and thus:

2,100-3,300 mg for a 150lb person

2,900-4,400 mg for a 200lb person

3,600-5,500 mg for a 250lb person

The above dosages ranges are but estimates for cognitive enhancement. Currently, 500mg of centella asiatica twice daily has shown anxiety reducing effects in humans and 750mg of a 5% asiaticoside extract has enhanced mood state; while these doses are active on the cognition, it is not yet demonstrated if they are the dose needed to boost learning.
