Aloe Vera Effective Medicine for Cancer

You have probably already heard about how aloe vera is great for healing burns and acne reduces the inflammation from bug bites and helps with skin problems, but did you know that it’s also an important preventative medicine for cancer? It’s true. Studies done in labs on animals and on test tube cancer cells found that the active substance in aloe vera, that very same plant you probably have sitting on your kitchen window, stops the growth of new blood vessels, the very blood vessels that cancer cells must have to grow.  The Mayo Clinic also did a study where subjects who ingested aloe vera gel helped to heal their cancer.


Besides lung cancer, aloe vera helps prevent skin cancer as well. The University Of Belgrade School Of Medicine showed that aloe vera gel stops the growth of cells that cause skin cancer.

The health benefits of aloe vera are absolutely amazing and they don’t stop at cancer. Just a few of the benefits of aloe vera are:

  • Lowers cholesterol levels
  • Improves the oxygen levels in the blood
  • Eases inflammation
  • Alkalizes the body
  • Cures ulcers, IBS, and Crohn’s disease
  • Reduces high blood pressure
  • Accelerates healing
  • Stops colon cancer, heals the intestinal tract
  • Stabilizes blood sugar
  • Prevents and treats candida infections
  • Protects the kidneys
  • Hydrates and protects the skin

There are many more health benefits to aloe vera, too many to name here, which is why aloe vera truly is a miracle plant.

Scientific research shows that strong anti-tumor compounds are within the polysaccharides of aloe vera. This means that aloe vera gel will improve your immune system while destroying cancerous tumors. A study that was published back in 1995, and published in International Immunopharmacology, showed that the polysaccharides in aloe vera show very strong macrophage activating activities including the production of increased volumes of nitric oxide, which means it has anti-tumor potential.

Aloe vera, along with other cancer cures in naturopathic medicine, that combine the proper herbs (such as cats claw), true super foods (such as spirulina), and advanced therapies (such as large quantities of vitamin C taken intravenously) will help give you the best results when you are fighting any form of cancer. Always work with a naturopathic doctor to learn what you should so as well as the best methods to deal with your type of cancer.

A phytonutrient found in aloe vera, called acemannan, is now being studied. In one research study that was done on cats and dogs that were undergoing radiation for cancer were given acemannan in addition to their radiation. The group that took acemannan saw significant reduction in their tumor size as well as a tremendous increase in their post-treatment survival longevity rates. Google lists literally hundreds of links that explore the anti-cancer effects of acemannan. These studies show that aloe vera accelerates the death of cancerous tumors, improves survival time and has far better results than typical cancer treatments.

A study done with rats showed that taking aloe vera extended their lifespan by 10 percent! While, at the same time, absolutely no adverse or toxic effects were found by ingesting aloe vera gel.

Aloe vera gel, fresh, directly from the plant, has almost no taste, so you can grow some aloe vera in your own yard, or windowsill.


Although you can buy aloe vera gel, many of the products sold are very weak and actually contain very, very little true aloe vera gel. Others have been heated to the point that they have destroyed the very healing effects you are taking aloe vera gel for.  There are now many great brands of aloe vera gel sold in a powder form that you can easily use in smoothies.

There are so many other reasons to take aloe vera, it would take a book to list them all, but if for no other reason than you want to avoid developing cancer, taking aloe vera gel daily would be a wise decision.
