Pure extract of ALOE VERA;
Characterised by a wide spectrum of fertilising and stress-relieving properties for the organism. Helps to quickly renew naturally damaged mucus on fish skin and helps heal small injuries and scratches.
This agent is a pure extract from the leaves of the plant Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis Miller). It is a natural, slightly gel-like, clear liquid of light green colour. Aloe Vera and its curative effects have been known more than 1000 years B.C. Today the broad spectrum of its curative effects has been proved by modern science and they can be successfully used also in aquariums, terrariums or outdoor decorative ponds.
As the plant has unique and almost legendary effects (it is often described as a natural miracle), let us look at the functioning of its extract in detail. A brief listing of its effects can clearly demonstrate its usefulness in aquariums, although it is mostly used in medicine and cosmetics for humans.
The plant contains more than 200 components. For example: Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, E and more, trace elements, amino acids, enzymes, lignine, saponine, etc. These components strengthen each other’s effects. The following effects of the plant extract have been proved scientifically: bactericidal, anti-inflammatory, regenerating, vascular, nutritional, viricidal, anaesthetic, antipyretic, detoxicating, anti-allergic and harmonizing.
In aquarium practice, we make use especially of the following Aloe Vera curative effects:
Regeneration: the gel favourably effects the restoration of external cells (skin) as well as internal cells (mucous membranes).
Bactericidal and fungicidal: it is highly effective at helping with undesirable but necessary interventions in the aquarium always when there is a danger of disrupting the protective mucus of fish, of injury to fish skin, gills, eyes, fins, etc. (This is especially critical in the case of imported fish, fish that are being cured, fish who have often been netted and transported, exhibition fish, etc.)
Aloe Vera is also very successfully used during spawning of problematic fish species and even species which suffer from rough spawning practices which damage their skin, etc.
It is recommended to apply ALOE GEL always after necessary activities such as netting and transporting of fish, separating spawn, separating fish for sale, or in case of newly bought fish for the aquarium. Also after the expiration of short-term or long-term curative baths, in order to assure perfect healing of injured or infected parts of fish bodies, support the restoration of their protective mucus, and generally soothe their organism.
ALOE GEL is a very suitable complement to the products START PLUS, CLEAR AQUA, VITAMIN a REVIT.
We hope that you use this gift of nature to your full satisfaction.
