Aloe Vera is an ancient plant with over 6000 years of
documented history and is classified as an Herbal Bitter. The bitter is
from the Yellow Sap also called latex and contains a valuable anthraquinone complex. The 100% safe yellow sap stimulates
the flow of digestive juices, encourages the bowels to move if needed and contains significant anti-inflammatory compounds.
The bitter has a pH of 4.7 - 5.2 considered
acidic and is located just under the outer leaf. Aloe Life leaves more of this
yellow sap complex in all of the products undiluted - including the Herbal Juice Formulas, Personal Care and the Whole Leaf
Aloe Vera Juice Concentrates. Notice the Golden Yellow Color in the Juices and Skin Gel. We reference the Aloe Life line as
therapeutic because consumers receive more and use less.
Aloe Life Aloe Vera products are
made from the Whole Leaf with NO SULFITES OR WATER ADDED! The juices are
undiluted and not over filtered. They contain the highest amounts of the valuable yellow sap and are Certified Organic leaves.
The Herbal Juice Formulas are made with Herb Pharm and Gaia Extracts 1%. NO SULFITES OR WATER ADDED. Aloe Life
follows strict GMP manufacturing and testing guides on every batch of products.
The Taste Test” tells it
all in Aloe Vera Liquids and Tablets. If unflavored Aloe Vera products
taste like water, citrus-y or sweet -
you will know from the taste test it has lost the bitter property and will have limited digestive support. Aloe Life natural Aloe Gold
taste like a bitter tomato juice, strong mineral taste that includes valuable sulfur. Sulfur is an important constituent of collagen,
insulin and amino acid metabolism in the body.
Bitter herbs stimulate natural hydrochloric
acid (HCL) in the stomach paramount for digestion of protein and
build and repair cells of the body. HCL works totally different than enzymes in the digestive process. Taking enzymes does not
break down minerals. Minerals can be looked upon like catalyst and building materials of the body. You cannot have a healthy
immune system, healthy skeletal structure, stay warm, maintain a slim body weight, detoxify, heal the skin, prevent scarring or
even sleep well at night, etc without proper mineral absorption.
Aloe Vera is the “King of
All bitters can help with digestion to some degree yet Aloe Vera performs two
very important duties;
1.) Turns on the digestive system and 2.) It also supports healing of all tissues of the body both inside and out. Aloe Life conducted an
18-month documented wound study using their Ultimate Skin Treatment - Skin Gel on diabetic wounds in 1997. “Clinical Evaluation
of full thickness Wounds with Tunneling and Stage I-IV” was accepted for presentation at the 12th Annual Wound Symposium in
Dallas, Texas with 100% resolution of all 150 wounds in the study.
Polysaccharide value is great from Aloe
Life juices because it is a quality certified product. Active Aloe Certified
is stating the
polysaccharides are still in the larger bonds. Oxidation and high heat breaks these microscopic bonds. It is through the ingesting
of Aloe Vera that contains this higher concentration of intact polysaccharide bonds that macrophage activity is increased.
Macrophage works through phagocytosis in the destruction of viruses, fungus and bacteria - dose dependent. Stronger is better
according to good scientific data certified by the Active Aloe seal. Smaller amounts of quality Aloe Vera seems to promote balance
for digestion and an overactive immune system.
Bioavailability Factors in Aloe Vera have received
scientific support from the University of PA in Scranton, 2002. Humans taking
their Vitamin E & Vitamin C with Aloe Vera vs. the controls taking them with water had an increase uptake over 200%. Aloe Vera
carries in the nutrients internally and externally deeper into the cells. Aloe Vera is a “Foundational Herb” to build ones dietary and
supplement program upon preventatively.
Highlights of Quality Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Juice Products Include: Digestion & Elimination, Energy Enhancing, Skin Renewal, Allergy Reduction, Candida Control, Immune System & Auto Immune Support, And Preventative Health.

Where Does the Gluten Puzzle Piece Fit - Into the BIGGER Health Picture?
Truth is in short supply these days, yet the truth about Gluten is that all people are sensitive to its inflammatory properties
- it is only a question as to what degree? Once you see the bigger picture of health and learn how Gluten and other factors
limit ones’ health potential - life becomes more exciting. Surprising to some, 9 out of 10 people feel remarkably better
reducing or eliminating Gluten from their diets. This is because Gluten appears to affect all of the body’s systems via the
Nervous System not just the gut. Definitely focus on Gluten intolerance if you have been experiencing IBS – Irritable Bowel
Syndrome symptoms of digestive upset, gas & bloating, poor elimination, diarrhea, heartburn, slow growth & development
of children, unhealthy skin, ulcers & mouth blisters, pre-mature aging and over all failing health.
Learning how to live a low gluten, low inflammatory lifestyle takes about 30-45 days. Experimenting with the guidelines
outlined in my reference book, Beyond Gluten Intolerance – GIS Gluten Inflammatory Syndrome makes it easier than any
other resource I have found. Besides reading the Gluten story in the book - you also receive information that helps you
diagnose your family’s health and it gives a clear explanation of why patients often receive a false-negative for Gluten
through blood screening. It is always better to rely on your body’s symptoms vs. any blood test. Three levels of health
programs are offered for success, which address preventative health, people living with multiple symptoms and also
advanced illness that includes Celiac and other IBD Inflammatory Bowel Disease conditions.
● All children & adults are gluten sensitive.
● Gluten (an anti-nutrient) & poor digestion relate to all disease.
● Lowering inflammation & optimizing nutrition is the #1 health goal.
● Shortcuts to wellness; GIS diet, supplements (aloe, fish
oil, probiotics, & multiple vitamin/mineral or separate) plus B-Complex/B12 & healthier lifestyle choices+.
One benefit that has brought many into the low gluten lifestyle is the ability to reach a higher excellence in athletic
performance. Due to the brain-bowel connection of the neurological pathway, lowering inflammation through diet also
improves other neuromuscular movement as well, including accident-proneness, bowel irregularity, dyslexia, peristalsis
action of the throat (able to swallow foods more safely) and even calms the tremors that often come with Parkinson’s.
Digestion is an important topic for anyone learning about health. In fact scientific research at Tuft’s University has proven
that good digestion is essential for proper growth, development and healthy aging of the body and mind. Also, bountiful
research underlines the critical nature of ingesting the 91 plus nutritional elements needed to support proper body metabolism.
These essential core nutrients come from food (and food supplements), yet it takes a vital functioning digestive system to
extract these elements. Included in the mix are; vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates, essential fatty acids and oils that
are required to fuel and build the body for wellness. When the body runs short of any one or group of nutrients - science has
confirmed that disease will follow.
Many challenges exist in optimizing one’s daily diet. Strive for 3 smart delicious meals and 2 healthier snacks, and chew your
food s l o w l y. The roadblocks will fall away and your new renewed health will encourage your efforts – energy, sleeping better,
less pain in the body and starting to look and feel much younger – and it works for everyone!
● Eating a mono diet (the same few items) or skipping meals give marginal health support of omission.
● Food abuse tied to addictions is detrimental to the body.
● Consuming high amounts of anti-nutrients (gluten, refined sugar, milk solids, etc.) impairs digestion.
● Environmental toxicity, pharmaceutical drugs, disease & poor eating habits.
Unsuspecting eaters are consuming high amounts of Gluten and inflammatory foods, not aware that their dietary choices
of whole grains and perhaps other factors coming from "perceived healthy choices" are actually doing them in! The Gluten
molecule is found in un-sprouted wheat and also in the other whole grains commonly thought of as healthy like rye, barley,
spelt, and triticale. Similar irritants are located in other sticky protein complex carbohydrates, like the tasty oats and brown rice.
Any of these grains may be responsible for acute reactions the eater has not yet connected to a disease condition developing
in the body like an auto-immune disorder. The clincher is - the highest content of Gluten is found in the bran of the whole grains
and most fibers can be very problematic, even corn and regular potatoes.
The Gluten Story
Why Gluten has taken center stage being demonized more recently - is due to the Whole Grain & High Fiber Revolution!
It has been picking up speed for the past 40 years. Coupled with the upsurge of milk product (complex carbohydrate)
consumption, being consumed at an all-time record high, along with more refined sugar (complex carbohydrate) sneaking
back into favor with health foods, dessert coffee and desserts! Society’s digestion capacity is malfunctioning, TILT – TILT - TILT!!!!!
People are at an all-time low on the health scale and their digestion just cannot keep up with all the insults! What follows in
the gut is big time inflammation which results in tissue damage and reduced absorption. Then comes malnutrition of valuable
nutrients like B12, setting the stage for disease development. It is a dismal situation, yet there is a way out. Reduce the amount
of the offending inflammatory catalysts, accent smart nutrition (GIS Diet), and add the short-cut supplements that support the
body for repair and function of the intestinal tract.
I find that a quality Aloe Vera juice is my number one choice. Select a concentrated product if at all possible for faster results.
When you see the dark golden color of an Aloe juice, you know it contains the bitter actives and natural anti-inflammatory
agents that both support digestive health and give you the desired results! Also, I prefer fish oil over other oils
(including the Vitamin A & D) and a good Probiotic (friendly bacteria) with a tableted or liquid Multiple Vitamin & Mineral.
Together this protocol along with healthier lifestyle choices, allows renewal of the body at any age. – Enjoy!
