Endometriosis and Aloe Barbadensis

As we mentioned in previous articles, endometriosis growing somewhere else other than the endometrium also reacts to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycle by building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through the menstrual period. As we know, herbs play a very important role in some cultures in treating all kinds of diseases. In this article, we will discuss how aloe barbadensis helps to treat endometriosis.

I. Definition
Aloe barbadensis also known as aloe vera, is a species of plants that reside in northern Africa. It has been used in traditional medicine in treating diabetes and elevating blood lipids in the body.

II. How aloe barbadensis effects women with endometriosis
1. Circulatory system
Aloe contains C-glycoside which is a vital element to help lower the blood sugar in the bloodstream, thusit helps to increase the circulation blood which not only is necessary to transport the essential nutrients for the body's cell but also helps to increase blood flow to the abdomen resulting in smoothing the abdominal muscle leading to lessen the menstrual pain for women with endometriosis.

2. Immune system
The element lectin in aloe barbadensis also plays an important roles in the immune system by recognizing carbohydrates which are natural defenses against some of the common pathogens, thereby reducing the levels of inflammation caused by endometrial implants and adhesion as well as fighting against foreign bacteria or virus invasion. Its polymannan is said to help to strengthen the immune system.

3. Laxative effects
Aloe barbadensis containing anthraquinones also helps to improve the large intestine in moving of stool by smoothing the intestine muscles which is vital for women with endometriosis also having constipation during menstruation.

4. Liver support
The chemical anthrones in aloe helps the liver in synthesis of fatty acids. This not only helps to reduce levels of bad cholesterol and triglycerides in the bloodstream but also balances the hormones of the family prostaglandins that reduce the overactive uterine muscles thus decreasing menstrual cramps.
