What harvest method produces high quality Aloe Vera?

Dear Sam,

Aloe vera is the best immune system stimulant, while simultaneously providing good nutrition.

However, not all aloe is of equal value.

Some years ago, it was discovered that there is an enzyme that starts to break down the long chain sugars within 30 minutes of the plant being picked. If this process is not checked within that time, the value of the aloe declines rapidly.

A freeze dried process was developed that allows the preservation of all the aloe's value so that you get it all. This results in a light, dry powder, which can be mixed in a spoonful at a time into any juice.

The advantage of this is that you get 100% aloe vera freeze-dried powder, with no additives, no preservatives and no water.

Conventional aloe in the stores always has preservatives because of FDA regulations. In additon, FDA allows the product to be called 100% aloe, even if there is only two teaspoons in a gallon of water !! So the opportunity to dilute is huge.

Dear LC,

Aloe vera barbadensis Miller is the right variety.
Organic is very good.
However, preparation time is critical.

From the moment the plant is cut down, there is a window of 30 minutes before the enzymes within begin to break down the long chain sugars that are the secret of aloe's power.

So the key to quality aloe is to process it within that 30 minute window. Aloe Essence is freeze dried right on the plantation, within 20 minutes of being cut. That is why it is the best quality product available.

And it is grown in a volcanic soil without pesticides or herbicides of any kind.

Dear Christel,

Aloe Essence freeze-dried aloe vera powder
Galactomannans are long chain sugars derived from plants, which have a wide variety of immune stimulating and protective effects within the body. The aloe barbadensis plant contains the greatest concentration of acetylated mannan, which is the most active form. This "acemannan" has been shown to have many effects in the body, mostly impacting on the gastrointestinal and immune systems, which are intricately related.

Individuals suffering from immuno-depressive conditions (Epstein-Barr, Chronic fatigue Syndrome, systemic candidiasis, HIV infection and others) typically have maldigestion. Maldigestion means that the consumed food is not properly broken down into the elemental building blocks needed for the body to rebuild itself and to generate energy for metabolism. This results in a type of starvation at the cellular level, with all tissue suffering malnourishment and therefore decreased effectiveness of all internal chemical processes.

Maldigestion also results in partially digested food remnants which cause inflammation and increase the permeability of the mucosal wall of the intestines. The foreign proteins of the digested food can then leak across the mucosa into the lymphatic channels of the intestinal wall and into circulation. Here, these absorbed proteins are recognized as foreign and attacked by the cells of the immune system, draining it. In addition, undigested food remnants provide fuel for the overgrowth of Candida albicans which results in worsening of food allergies, hypoglycemia, digestive disturbances, excessive mucus, bloating, flatulence, skin rashes, and extreme fatigue.

All these processes lead to a progressive weakening of the immune system. Only a thorough multidimensional treatment protocol addressing each component has been shown to reverse these processes. Aloe vera can play a key role in this protocol in boosting immune function, alkalinizing the body and enhancing digestion.

The best quality aloe vera is the freeze-dried product called Aloe Essence. It is organically grown in volcanic soils in Costa Rica and freeze-dried within 20 minutes of harvesting in order to preserve the long-chain sugars. It contains no additives, preservatives or fillers, just pure aloe. It can be dissolved in juice and drunk each morning.

Best of Health!

I sell ozonated coconut oil and use it in my clinic, and have found it has a nicer texture, less smelly and is less heat sensitive than ozonated olive oil. The therapeutic effects seem to be if anything better than OOO. I believe this is because coconut oil has therapeutic benefits of its own, whether ozonated or not

I dont normally like doing commercial plugs on this list, but there is some info on it on this page of my web site. Click on "Cocozone".
