The consumption of these inorganic substances is necessary to numerous biochemical and physiological processes.
Aloe Arborescens contains calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, Colina, iron and zinc.
Calciumís benefit in the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis is well known, as well as being an essential factor in bone health. Calcium, according to several studies could be capable of preventing bowel cancer. It also contributes to the prevention of cardiovascular diseases and relieves muscle cramps.
Magnesium, is to be found mostly in our bones and intercellular liquids, indeed it takes part in all the major biological processes: from the metabolism of glucose to the production of endocellulare energy, to the synthesis of nuclear acids and protein. It maintains the wholeness of cell membranes, is involved in muscle contraction and in the conduction of nerve cell impulses.
Magnesium acts in synergy with calcium, yet in some reactions they actually behave in an antagonistic manner towards one other, for example in the synthesis of nuclear acids and proteins, where calcium inhibits these processes, magnesium encourages them. Both, however take part in the production of ATP. Magnesium, in particular, regulates the quantity of calcium that enters the cells to stimulate vital functions such as the pumping of the heart. The use of magnesium has proved particularly effective in nervous system disorders.
Sodium and potassium are essential minerals for cell balance and for the most important enzyme processes. They help in the maintenance of the healthy functioning of the nervous system and for the muscles. The presence of potassium in the red globules of our blood is indispensable to the transport of carbon dioxide.
Chromium is important to the regulation of levels of sugar in our blood. It favours the production of insulin and for this reason is useful in the prevention and treatment of diabetes.
Iron is particularly important to cell respiration, it takes part in the production of carnitina in the synthesis of collagen and elastin. It prevents and cures anaemia, improves physical performance and increases energy levels.
Manganese is a trace mineral which takes part in some aspects of the bloods coagulation. We are still not fully aware of the exact role of manganese, it is nevertheless held important to the healthy functioning of the brain, to combat schizophrenia and nervous illnesses in general. Its presence is in any case necessary to the metabolism of glucose.
Zinc has long been known for its stimulant effect on the immune system. It activates more than 200 enzymes, even those which take part in DNA and RNA synthesis, as well as having a primary role in the functioning of cell membranes.
