Use: raw material for the self-production of cosmetics. It can be used for beauty masks, scrubs, etc.
Aloe has been widely used in many parts of the world for cosmetic and medicinal purposes for thousands of years.
The first evidence of the use of Aloe comes from ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia , where it was called " the plant of immortality ", in fact also used in the mixtures used for mummification (probably due to its natural antioxidant effect).
We then move on to Hippocrates (460-337 BC), father of modern medicine. In numerous medical books he praises his healing properties.
Discoride (20-70 AD) talks about it in "De materia medica", listing the properties of Aloe as healing, anti-inflammatory and useful in skin infections.
Pliny the Elder , in the treatise "Historia Naturalis", describes the therapeutic properties of Aloe .
It is also mentioned in various passages of the Bible : in the Book of Numbers, in the Song of Songs and in the Gospel of St. John (19.3) as a component of mixture used to anoint the body of Jesus after the descent from the cross.
The Tibetan medicine compared to the Ayurvedic they still use today for their preparations.
The Templars used aloe as an ingredient in a special drink they called " Jerusalem Elixir ".
In the Middle Ages and the Renaissance the medicinal use of aloe spread to the northern regions of Europe.
Christopher Columbus , who went down in history as "the explorer of the New World" in one of his writings declares that four plants are indispensable for man: wheat, vine, olive and aloe. The first nourishes, the second rejoices, the third gives harmony and the fourth gives health.
As you can see, the relationship between Aloe and human being is rooted in the mists of time and is not the latest news of the moment.

Spirulina is an algae loaded with a unique set of nutrients ad antioxidants. The nutrients present in the spirulina are so many that, even if taken alone together with water, spirulina can guarantee all the essential substances that are needed for the survival of the human being.
Package: Cardboard box containing a 125g Spirulina package in a stand-up closed bag, not transparent to protect the product from UVA rays, with press- zipper to open/close.
Spirulina is a type of green algae that grows spontaneously in particular sweet lakes with alkaline waters, present in certain tropical areas of the planet, such as Lake Texcoco in the Mexican plateau and Lake Chad, located in central-northern Africa. The Aztecs made great use of it for millennia as a food supplement. The Westerners discovered it for the first time about 500 years ago, when the Spanish conquerors, after landing in Central America, saw the Aztec natives spreading thickly woven nets on the surface of the lake, and then pulled up a greenish mush. This pulp, which was in fact spirulina, was then dried in the sun and subsequently used to make bread with high nourishing power.
Only several years later, in mid-1900s, scientists shed light on the incredible nutritional properties hidden in spirulina.
Spirulina is the number one superfood par excellence, as it is one of the very few foods that alone, together with water, can guarantee to the human being all the nutrients he needs for survival. It is no coincidence that we speak of spirulina as the "food of the future", or the food that alone will be able to defeat hunger in the world. As a matter of fact, it is one of the main foods used by astronauts, because at equal weight there is no other dried food that can contain such a high concentration of nutrients, all highly bioavailable.
Below you can find a list of its main properties and uses:
Thanks to its high amount of nutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, mineral salts, vitamins, etc.) spirulina is considered a food supplement par excellence, able to perfectly compensate for possible nutritional deficiencies due to malnutrition, or special diets (for example vegetarian and vegan).
Thanks to its very high concentration of proteins (60-65%, three times higher than in meat) highly bioavailable, the presence of all the essential amino acids and the high concentration of vitamins and minerals, spirulina is the perfect choice for all those sportsmen who want to supplement their diet, but in a natural and healthy way, without assuming synthetic products. Moreover, being a wonderful alkalizing agent, spirulina has an anti-acid effect on the tissues, which facilitates a faster recovery after and during the sport activity.
Spirulina has a concentration of antioxidants that very few other foods can feature. In particular: carotenoids, vitamin C, chlorophyll, phycocyanine and selenium, all substances that are found in abundance in spirulina, are all antioxidants very useful to counteract the harmful action of free radicals, improving the prevention against many diseases of degenerative nature, including Cancer.
Taking spirulina regularly ensures an improved immune response to bacterial, fungal and viral infections. Some laboratory studies have shown that spirulina has a strong antiviral action, especially against the influenza virus and the herpes labial virus, as well as measles and mumps. Furthermore, spirulina protects the T lymphocytes and promotes the production of antibodies and improves the function of glands and organs of the body linked to the production of white blood cells, such as bone marrow, spleen and lymph nodes.
It certainly does not make miracles, but spirulina can be of great help in losing weight. Thanks to its nutritional complexity and the presence of numerous minerals, vitamins and enzymes, spirulina is able to speed up the metabolism of our body and facilitates the elimination of fat deposits. In addition, spirulina contains phenylalanine, a substance that acts on the nervous system and in particular on the area that affects appetite, inducing a sense of satiety. Spirulina inflicts a control action on blood glucose levels and glycemic changes, which is in fact one of the main causes of body fat accumulation.
Spirulina is a powerful alkalizing agent, which helps to counteract gastric hyperacidity and even tissue acidification. For this same reason, it is also considered an anti-cancer food, because, as we have seen in recent studies, acidity and tumors go hand in hand.
The fatty acids contained in the spirulina, especially those belonging to the category of omega 3, act on the proteins that carry cholesterol from the liver to the secondary districts through the blood circulation. By inhibiting the action of these proteins, essential fatty acids facilitate a reduction in the concentration of cholesterol in the blood.
Spirulina is able to eliminate many heavy metals harmful to our body. In particular it has an effect on mercury, lead, cadmium and many chlorinated hydrocarbons often found in pesticides and insecticides.
Spirulina is very rich in calcium (a concentration 26 times higher than that present in cow's milk), so it is very useful for preventing and fighting osteoporosis and for stimulating the formation of bones, cartilages and teeth in children during growth.
The high concentration of iron (34 times higher than in spinach), chlorophyll and vitamin B12 makes spirulina a great ally for all people suffering from anemia. Because of the incredible richness of these and many other nutrients that we have already listed, spirulina is also perfect for those who often suffer from fatigue and psycho-physical exhaustion.
Beta carotene helps maintain healthy skin, slows down aging caused by ultraviolet radiation and helps protect skin from sunburn. It contains unusually high levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids, gamma linolenic acid (GLA), which contributes to the excellent elasticity of the skin. As an excellent source of protein, GLA, vitamin B complex, vitamin E and zinc, spirulina improves the hair structure, helps prevent dry, brittle hair and promotes stronger nails.
It is very simple to take spirulina in tablets, in this solution you do not feel the typical seaweed taste, unpleasant to many people. The intake, like any other tablet, should be accompanied by a generous sip of natural water at room temperature (not boiling and not frozen).
Who can take it? Spirulina can be taken at any age, either by children, adults or the elderly, and can be taken safely even by pregnant and breastfeeding women.
Recommended doses: 4 to 16 tablets a day to be taken two or more times a day.
The maximum dose (8g equivalent to 16 tablets, it is recommended for those who do a lot of sport).
Keep in a dry place, away from direct sunlight and sources of heat. Keep out of the reach of children.
All toxicological studies confirm that Spirulina does not show any toxicity or any side effect if taken in the right dosages. In case of overdose it may give symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.
