The earliest use of the aloe vera plant can be traced back to Egypt, 6,000 years ago. The plant, which was presented as a burial gift to deceased pharaohs, was considered the “plant of immortality,” and was portrayed on ancient stone carvings. The Egyptians and ancient Greeks used the inner gel of the aloe vera plant topically for its soothing, emollient properties, and rumor has it that Cleopatra used aloe vera gel to keep her skin looking youthful and vibrant. Today, aloe vera gel is one of the most popular herbs in America, and remains a common topical aid.
Parts used and where grown
The aloe plant originally came from Africa. The leaves, which are long, green, fleshy, and have spikes along the edges, are used medicinally. The fresh leaf gel and latex are used for many purposes. Aloe latex is the sticky residue left over after the liquid from cut aloe leaves has evaporated.
Historical or Traditional Use
Aloe has been historically used for many of the same conditions for which it is used today—particularly constipation and minor cuts and burns. In India, it has been used by herbalists to treat intestinal infections, suppressed menses, and colic.
About Nature's Herbs
Twinlab was created in 1968 when founder David Blechman leveraged his 20 years of expertise in the pharmaceutical industry to develop and market a liquid protein supplement. Working out of his family’s garage, he and his wife named their developing business Twinlab, after the couple’s two sets of twins. Sales soared, and in the 1980s, Twinlab branched out to a broader range of vitamins, minerals, herbs and teas.
Since 1968, the Twinlab brand has been the trusted leader for innovative, high performance health and wellness products. In addition to the extensive line of vitamins, minerals and sports nutrition formulas of its namesake brand, Twinlab Corporation also manufactures and sells other category leaders, including the Metabolife line of diet and energy products; Alvita teas, established in 1922 as one of the country's first herbal tea lines, and Nature's Herbs, a complete line of herbals and phytonutrients.
