Aloe Vera and Horses with Stomach Ulcers
Aloe Vera taken internally helps the protective action of gastric mucus against the irritating action of pepsin. Aloe Vera soothes because it comprises of many polysaccharides which are chemically very similar to the natural protective mucous membrane of the stomach. Aloe Vera inhibits excessive gastric secretion by the gastric mucosa. This property is attributed to the anti-histamine action of Aloe Vera. Aloe Vera does not neutralize the acid, but goes back to the cause of overproduction of gastric acid. Aloe Vera can also overcome acidic levels in the stomach which are too low. Aloe Vera is bacteriostatic (stops bacteria from reproducing) and therefore helps to prevent the growth of bacteria responsible for the stomach ulcers. In view of the persistent nature and tendency of re-occurrence of this bacteria and ultimately reoccurring ulcers, administering Aloe Vera daily can support and assist this common problem in horses.
Aloe Vera and Skin Issues
Aloe Vera has the ability to penetrate through the epidermal layer of the skin to the deep dermal layer. The enzymes contained in the gel help break down dead tissue from the skin and therefore Aloe Vera serves as an excellent natural exfoliate. The salicylic acid content also assists in exfoliation. Together these actions help remove dead and damaged cells making Aloe Vera beneficial for skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. Aloe Vera is also particularly useful for cleansing/healing skin wounds, cuts, bites and rashes due to its ability to increase cell division. It has been shown scientifically by Dr Atherton, Dr Cochrane and Dr Danof that Aloe Vera increases cell division by fibroblast in the skin by at least 3 times. This is why wounds tend to heal quicker. Clinical experiences by veterinary surgeon Dr David Urch found that wounds heal 1/3 quicker than those treated with conventional veterinary preparations.
