Certified Organic Aloe Vera

As Aloe Vera is a succulent plant, it directly absorbs water from the surrounding soil system. If the soil contains herbicides, pesticides, or other chemicals, the artificial chemicals would be directly absorbed into the leaves and could cause damage to the nutrients in the plant. Our Organic Aloe Vera does not contain any herbicides, pesticides, or harsh chemicals.

 

The Difference between Aloe Vera Gel and Juice

The gel is derived from the juice and includes the naturally occurring pulp that comes from the Aloe plant. The juice is without any pulp.

COMMON USES FOR ALOE VERA TO IMPROVE OVERALL HEALTH
Aloe Vera helps support a healthy immune system, as well as many other natural body functions. It is great as a part of a daily healthy maintenance regimen. It also works great to take in conjunction with daily vitamins and herbal supplementation. Studies confirm that taking daily vitamin supplements with Aloe Vera juice instead of water can improve the bioavailability (absorption) of the supplements.

 

GASTROINTESTINAL SYSTEM


Aloe Vera helps promote healthy digestion throughout the entire digestive tract including the esophagus, stomach, small & large intestines, and the colon. It helps restore and promote regularity.

 

MUSCLE AND JOINT SUPPORT


Aloe Vera helps support normal muscle, tissue, and joint functions.

 

ORAL HYGIENE

Aloe Vera helps maintain healthy gums, mouth, and throat environment.

 

TOPICAL APPLICATION


Aloe Vera is effective for minor abrasions, acne, burns, cold sores, cuts, dry skin, insect bites, scrapes, skin moisturizer, and sunburn.

 

Our process

Since we can’t merely snap our fingers and change each Aloe leaf into a nutrient-filled juice, we have devised an effective process to produce the best Aloe on the market.

After the leaves are removed from the plant they are transported from the greenhouses to a processing plant where the leaves are washed in a high pressure powered washing machine and thoroughly cleansed with a food grade sterilizing agent.

The inner fillet is then cut from the leaf by hand and placed on a conveyor system which transports the leaf to a stainless steel finishing machine, which pulverizes the Aloe leaf and pumps it into a 2,500-gallon food processing tank where it is heated to liquefy the pulp to a gold/yellow liquid/extract.

Two naturally based preservatives, Potassium Sorbate and Sodium Benzoate are added to further stabilize the product. Citric Acid and Ascorbic Acid are also added to the juice to adjust the pH.

The extract is then finely filtered through a Kuno machine. The pH is checked and adjusted if necessary. A sample is obtained for testing at the processing plant.

The extract is then pumped into 1,000 litre pallecons for transporting to the factory for manufacture into Aloe Vera Juices and cosmetics.

During the filling process three samples are obtained from each 1,000 litre pallecon and sent to independent laboratories for testing, thus ensuring the product meets all quality control standards. It is important to us to provide only the best and most effective Aloe Vera products.

Although the myth that heat destroys Aloe’s active ingredients has been disproved, many companies continue to advertise their “cold processed” Aloe as superior. In fact, heating has been part of the Aloe processing procedure for over 2,500 years. With pasteurization, potentially harmful bacteria are killed, and we are able to provide a completely safe and highly effective Aloe product.

 

Benefits

INTERNAL BENEFITS


Aloe researchers report that when taken internally, Aloe Vera coats the lining of the digestive tract allowing absorption of the aloe polysaccharide. Recent studies have shown benefits of using Aloe when taking supplements versus using water. One study showed an increase of over 204% absorption of Vitamin C & E when using Fillet gel. Another study showed an increase of 210% absorption of Vitamin C and 180% of Vitamin B12 when using Fillet juice. Whole Leaf juice resulted in 140% increase of Vitamin C and 160% increased absorption of Vitamin B12.

   Antioxidant support
   Joint and Muscle health support
   Digestive support
   Gastrointestinal Relief
   Increased Absorption
   Immune Support

 

EXTERNAL BENEFITS


Aloe researchers report that Aloe can penetrate through 3 epidermal layers of the skin when used topically. It provides the benefit of driving nutrients and other constituents into the deeper layers of the skin, which promotes epidermal health.

   Sunburn relief
  Burn and Wound relief
   Anti-inflammatory
   Skin Moisturizer

 

Health Topics

DIGESTIVE HEALTH SUPPORT


Aloe Vera, when taken orally provides a thin layer of nutritional coating in the lining of the stomach, esophagus, and gastrointestinal tract that remain intact for forty-eight hours. This coating serves as the foundation allowing polysaccharides to enter into the digestive tract with the other naturally occurring constituents and begin the healing process. Our aloe products contain no more than 1-4 ppm of anthraquoine provide safe and effective cathartic effects to support constipation and regularity.

Recent studies have shown that Aloe Vera can promote tissue and cell regeneration and a healthy digestive system including support of: Acid Reflux, Heartburn, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), and Constipation.

 

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY SUPPORT


Studies confirm that Aloe Vera contains glucomannans, a special cell-surface receptor which repair damaged tissue.

Plant hormones in Aloe Vera called auxins and gibberellins accelerate healing by stimulating cell replication.

The combination of salicylic acid and magnesium work together like an analgesic to soothe and relieve pain on contact.

The sodium in Aloe Vera helps prevent calcium build up in joints and bones.

The absorption benefits allow the penetration and absorption of other active constituents to maximize their known benefits of joint and anti-inflammatory properties.

Dr. Ian Tizard of Texas A & M University did research on aloe’s effect on inflammation. Results showed that aloe has a second anti-inflammatory mechanism by blocking certain bacteria or viruses that invade the body. Evidence has been presented to show that certain aloe-derived carbohydrates bind specifically to carbohydrate-binding sites. In doing this, they significantly reduce swelling and redness in some models of experimental inflammation.

 

Immune Support

Macrophages are specific cells of the Immune System. Studies show that aloe has a stimulating effect of the acetylated mannan (polysaccharides) on this primary cell, and that macrophages interact with other cells within the immune system to play a vital role in the body’s defense system.

Studies confirm that aloe polysaccharides above the Dalton weight of 100,000 provide immune support. The higher the molecular weight, the greater the immune support.

Studies show that Polysaccharides may increase the action of white blood cells, thus increasing the production or what is referred to as the “Killer” in T-cells.

Researchers report that Aloe Vera has been proven to enhance the immune system’s response to cancer by promoting the growth of new and healthy cells and reducing the overall viral load within the body thereby revitalizing the body in its fight against cancer.

Researchers report that Aloe Vera can help reduce the damage to immune system cells when radiation and chemotherapy are used, which is critical in the body’s recovery.

Aloe may support Immune Depressed conditions.

 

Skin Health

Studies show that Aloe Vera can penetrate 3 epidermal layers of the skin.

High polysaccharide Aloe Vera gel may improve absorption of other botanical herbs and vitamins.

Wound healing studies report that Aloe Vera interacts with cell surface receptors to repair fibrolast, stimulating faster growth and replication.

Normal skin cells are replaced in 180 – 200 days. Faster cell growth means healthier skin. Aloe Vera can promote healthier skin.

Typically, Aloe Vera products should contain a significant quantity of Aloe Vera in the formula (30% – 99%) to be most effective on human skin.

Most aloe topical products at retail stores contain less than 1% – 10% Aloe Vera in creams, lotions, and other body products. Our products contain up to 99.9% Aloe Vera.

Today, thanks to the dedication and work of hundreds of scientific researchers throughout the world, and in particular, the studies by Robert T. Davis, Ph.D., of the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine, and Ivan E. Danhof, Ph.D., M.D., Director of North Texas Medical Associates, we now know a great deal more about the chemical make-up of Aloe Vera and its potential to relieve human suffering. Studies have shown that Aloe Vera is a heterogeneous mixture of more than 200 individual constituents, including polysaccharides, glycoproteins, amino acids, enzymes, vitamins and minerals.

Because of the determined efforts of these scientists, Aloe Vera is taking its rightful place among the effective homeopathic remedies of the medical world.

1989

According to the Cosmetic, Fragrance, and Toiletry Association (CTFA), Aloe is by far the most popular cosmetic and toiletry ingredient in the United States. Named as number one by over thirty three percent of a cross section of consumers.

1990

The following DVM and PhD’s presented a paper in Brussels Belgium, in April 1990, Jasbir B. Kohlon, Maurice C. Kemp, Ni Yawei, Robert H. Carpenter, William M. Shannon, and Bill H. McAnalley. Research concluded that Aloe, or a substance extracted from it, is a very effective treatment against HIV-1 and other strains of the virus which causes AIDS. Research confirms that daily ingestion (20 oz. or more) can act as a immunization against the HIV infection. In HIV positive or AIDS patients, Aloe: (1.) keeps infected T-4 cells from reproducing the virus, (2.) either kills free virus in the blood or it stimulates the individual’s immune system to kill the virus or both, (3.) it stops the disease AIDS from developing in HIV positive patients and can completely reverse the disease in those with AIDS, and (4.) some patients become Syro-negative. (The virus or antibody to the virus can no longer be found in the blood.)
