Medicinal Uses

Cape aloes is still an important commercial laxative medicine. The larger part of the annual production is exported, but substantial quantities are marketed and used locally. The popular self-care remedies “Lewensessens” and “Schweden bitters” contain Cape aloes. A. ferox and other species are used to a great extent in traditional human and livestock medicines. The leaves or roots, boiled in water, are taken as a laxative, but also for arthritis, eczema, conjunctivitis  , hypertension and stress. Leaf sap of several species such as A. arborescens and A. greatheadii is applied externally to treat skin irritations, bruises and burns. The dry leaves of A. marlothii are popular in snuff mixtures.

Preparation and Dosage

A small crystal of the crude drug, about twice the size of a match head,  is taken orally as a laxative. The product should not be used during pregnancy. Half the laxative dose is taken for arthritis. The fresh bitter sap is instilled directly for conjunctivitis and sinusitis. 

Active Ingredients

The main purgative principle is the anthrone C-glucoside aloin (=barbaloin). The aloin content in exudate varies between 8,5 and 32%, but 18% is the minimum requirement   for export. The wound-healing properties of aloe gel are ascribed to glycoproteins (see Bulbine) and to hydrating, insulating and protective effects.

Pharmacological Effects

At therapeutic doses, the anthraquinone derivatives act as stimulant laxatives . Aloin is only a prodrug while aloe-emodin anthrone, formed in the colon under the influence of bacterial enzymes, is responsible for the laxative action. It is said to increase peristalsis and to affect the absorption of water and electrolytes.
