CAPE ALOE LEAF
Also known as (Aloe Ferox Mill) is a plant indigenous to one province in South Africa, and nowhere else on earth!

Aloe Ferox is a cleansing agent for various complaints: constipation, headache, indigestion, heartburn, spastic colon, chronic fatigue, depression, stomach ulcers, high blood pressure, intestinal parasites, and arthritis.

Cayenne stimulates digestion and muscle movement in the intestines, which helps restore deficient digestive secretions and aids absorption of food nutrients. (Stomach acid tends to decline with age, and some cases of poor digestion are related to a lack of this acid.) Cayenne also stimulates circulation and blood flow to the peripheral areas of the body. Because it stimulates digestion and circulation, cayenne is often added to a wide variety of herbal remedies; it improves the absorption and circulation of the other herbs throughout the body.
