Aloe Arborescens vs Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera)

 
Let's
demystify  
the name of this plant, wrongly, for marketing reasons, known as 'Aloe Vera'.

Scientifically,
'Aloe Vera'  does not exist. So we decided to correct this wrong expression  although knowing that we are combating the  millionaire marketing on this plant. But we are sure, the truth will out "top."
 
Let us explain:
 'vera' means 'true' and this has been the name given to the variety Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera), for the wrong / misleading reasons described below. Below also identifies both varieties of Aloe.


The Aloe Barbadensis - a large leaf and yellow flower, the most commonly sold around the world - embodied in its products by large multinational companies, with millionaire marketing, who earn millions much because people believe they are buying the product recommended by Frei Romano Zago: Aloe Arborescens. That is, took the "wave" and surf on the success of this great investigator, selling "pig in a poke."

We highlight, for example, says Dr. Aldo Facetti (see Google):
 "As for the medicinal properties as a result of my analysis, I guarantee that Barbadensis, the most widely used by industry for the most amount of gel, has about 25% of the active substance against cancer, while Arborescens  owns 70%."

The Palatini Institute of Salzano, Venice, said:
 "The Arborescens is 200% richer in the medicinal properties of Barbadensis."

Concluding different relative proportions, both sources report a large difference in health benefits provide these varieties of Aloe .

 From this we can infer many misconceptions, so many people who have not achieved long-awaited success with this wonderful plant, of which there are about two hundred varieties, but only three or four have medicinal and healing really significant properies.
