How does aloe vera work?

How does aloe vera work?

The plant aloe vera contains a complex mixture of molecules. The Handbook of Phytochemical Constituents of GRAS Herbs and Other Economic Plants by James A. Duke states that there are as much as 300 different types of molecules in aloe vera. Hardly surprising then that it has multiple effects on multiple tissue types. Unfortunately this broad spectrum of activity also fuels ‘academic’ scepticism because aloe vera does just too much to be true. To put that last criticism into perspective, even in Prescription Only Medication (POM) there is not just one thing any drug does. This is why we have monthly editions of MIMS and BNP to show, next to the indications of POMs, their contraindications, warnings, other drug interactions and adverse effects. POMs are as targeted molecules as a pharmaceutical company can make them, yet they affect so much. Imagine a plant with 300 different types of molecules, of course it is going to act broad spectrum. Aloe vera has been used by millions of people worldwide throughout the ages. Empirical evidence accumulated in accolades like ‘miracle plant’ and ‘burn plant’ but for academic validity such a sustained track record is said to be meaningless. But even in today’s climate of evidence based medicine (EBM) much of day to day healthcare is characterised by non evidence based practice, variation in practice, inadequate outcome data, inequality of access to optimal treatment and ultimately a lack of evidence base. (Virus Research, Volume 89, Issue 2, November 2002, Pages 175-181). Entrenched sceptics should note that lack of evidence of efficacy should not be confused with evidence of lack of efficacy. The former says that there is insufficient evidence to pass judgement. The latter says it does not work. Of course good aloe vera works. Quite beside that there is safety and validation in the numbers (millions of people) and in the length of time aloe vera has been used (centuries), there is a lot of good quality research on aloe vera as well as scientific knowledge about what its different type of molecules do. This said, how well an aloe vera product works depends entirely on its quantity of working molecules, the quality of them and purity of product. On all counts Aloeride® Aloe Vera is an exemplary product that stands head and shoulders above its competitors. So how does it work? Aloeride® Aloe Vera is mostly taken by mouth but can also be applied to the skin. When taken by mouth, in the fluid environment of the stomach, the Aloeride® Aloe Vera capsules dissolve within 1 or 2 minutes giving our powder plenty of time to mix with the ample water (your stomach’s mixing waves occur every 15-25 seconds) with which you swallowed the capsules. So you have now rehydrated your aloe vera powder. Only when you have lesions or inflammation in your mouth or oesophagus is there a need for opening the capsules and ingesting the powder with water. This is easy and it does not taste horrible. With all 300 different types of molecules are out of the capsule, Aloeride® Aloe Vera goes to work. Broadly speaking the action is threefold and interconnected: anti-inflammatory, immune-modulatory and tissue healing with the target being mostly epithelium (tissue that separates tissue cells from air). Of course the first point of contact of these molecules is the alimentary canal, so it is hardly surprising that Aloeride® Aloe Vera’s molecules show their effect there first. Because Aloeride® Aloe Vera’s molecules also are absorbed into your bloodstream, they also find their way to peripheral tissue. Thus Aloeride® exerts effect way beyond the alimentary canal and causes powerful inside-out healing, the only route for safe wound healing and 24/7 skin care. Just how broad spectrum aloe vera works is underpinned by good research: cell growth, anti-inflammatory effect, anti-microbial effect, effect on burns, anti-diabetic effect, cardiovascular and lipid effect, anti-ageing effect and response to UV light, wound healing, gastrointestinal effects and immune modulation. Broad spectrum action is the result of 300 types of molecules as well as domino effect. To explain the latter, an inflamed intestinal wall for example becomes permeable to macromolecules that ought to stay within your alimentary canal. Enterocytes (intestine’s absorptive lining cells) normally determine what may enter the body - via transcellular crossing - and what stays inside the intestines. In leaky gut syndrome gaps occur in between the enterocytes so indiscriminate, paracellular crossing now can happen. Macromolecules gate crashing into your body trigger immune reactions. Aloeride® Aloe Vera helps close the gaps between enterocytes, thus indirectly changing immune response beyond its direct, researched effect on phagocytosis, lymphocytes and T-helper cells. Beyond that Aloeride® Aloe Vera also creates a more favourable milieu for good gut bacteria which in turn improves immunity. Three hundred different types of aloe vera molecules, working synergistically and causing domino effects, will act broad spectrum and the magic of all this forms the basis for aloe vera’s much deserved accolades.

Water in Aloe Vera

Water in Aloe Vera

All original aloe vera juice is 95% water and the magic of aloe vera does not linger in the water, the magic of aloe vera is in that 5% of solids that is suspended in the water and is known as working ingredients. Our ability to capture that 5% and then deliver this, in its entirety to you, is what makes Aloeride® Aloe Vera stand head and shoulders above other aloe vera products. Aloeride® Aloe Vera deliberately delivers that 5% working ingredients in powder form because all aloe vera liquids suffer both bacterial degradation and oxidation. Aloe vera gel or aloe vera juice being more natural than powder is a load of nonsense. That 95% water is not a highly specific carrying agent like for instance you might ooh and aah, about binding Magnesium to Citrate, Sulphate or an amino acid. H2O is H2O and when, like the sensible person you are, you use filtered water, then you rehydrate that 5% just fine. Aloe vera's magic simply is not in the water. What is in the water in aloe vera juice though are bacteria and they make aloe vera go off, which is why you must put all aloe vera juices in the fridge to try and slow down the inevitable. Also with juices, every single time you open the container, you let new air in so the juice can oxidise a bit further. That means it loses its antioxidant potential, thus loses its battle against free radicals. And that fancy phrase ‘stabilised aloe vera juice’ is nothing more than the manufacturer adding antioxidants, not to help you, but to slowdown their juice going off. Capturing much more of that 5% and delivering the full spectrum of molecules is what really counts. Precisely that is what we do with Aloeride® Aloe Vera. In capsule form Aloeride® also overcomes the awful taste of aloe vera. Also by being in capsule form, Aloeride® Aloe Vera does not need to stay at home in the fridge so you can use it anytime anywhere. Also by making Aloeride® Aloe Vera into a powder, bacteria have nothing to swim in and by encapsulating it, there is no air to oxidise the powder and blisterfoiling puts a further halt to that. And to cap it all, we give you unprecedented discounts on an exemplary aloe vera product. Anybody paying £s, €s or $s for aloe vera juice or aloe vera gel (more often than not more expensive than 1 pack of Aloeride® Aloe Vera which equates to slightly more than 1 litre) is paying for 95% water. So the chances are, that you have been misinformed about the reality of aloe vera, which can amount to a missed opportunity for success.

Sunshine sensible and Aloe Vera

Sunshine sensible and Aloeride® Aloe Vera

If you are fair skinned or like to lie in the sun, there is a high probability that you will have fallen victim to sunburn at some point during your life. However, just because it’s a commonplace condition, it doesn’t mean that it can’t have serious side effects. What are the effects of sunburn? The best known types of ultraviolet sunlight are UVA and UVB. Too much exposure to either of these rays will damage your skin. Not only will overexposure cause wrinkles and brown spots, prematurely aging the skin, but it can also have far more serious consequences such as skin cancer. The effects of sunburn and sunstroke are unpleasant - as anyone who has experienced it will know. Short term exposure may result in painful burning and reddened and peeling skin. Sunstroke is more serious: it dehydrates the sufferer and can cause high temperatures, vomiting and headaches. But the most devastating side effect is undoubtedly skin cancer. It is estimated that 90% of non-melanoma skin cancers and 60% of melanoma skin cancers (the more serious form) are caused by over exposure to the sun. Worryingly, melanomas are not just caused by prolonged and consistent over exposure: any episodes of sunburn, no matter how infrequent, also increase the risk due to the damage this does to your skin cells. How can I prevent sunburn? Whilst everyone should take precautions to protect themselves from exposure to the sun, there are some group of people who are more at risk than others:
• People with fair complexions and fair or red hair.

• People who work outdoors.

• Children: the amount of sun exposure is thought to be linked to the probability of developing skin cancer in adulthood. The good news is that sunburn and sunstroke is entirely preventable: you simply need to take sensible precautions and be aware of the damage that the sun can do to your body.
• In hot places or during a hot day, stay out of the sun between 11am and 3pm when it is at its fiercest.
• Cover up: wear a hat to protect your face and neck - the areas most commonly damaged by the sun; and wear loose clothing. Be aware that wet clothing lets through more UV rays than dry.
• Use a good sunscreen with a minimum of SPF (sun protection factor) 15. Apply before going into the sun and reapply frequently throughout the day. Ensure the lotion you choose blocks UVA and UVB rays and be aware that products have a limited shelf life. No sunscreen can completely protect you from the effects of UV rays.
• Keep babies and small children out of the sun completely if possible.

• Do not wash yourself with soap all the time. Soap removes the oil from the skin that is there to keep it supple and resilient. Ingest good quality omega 3 oils preferably together with broad spectrum (water and lipid soluble) antioxidants.
• Taking aloe vera capsules, such as Aloeride® Aloe Vera before and during a holiday much helps the skin to stand up to a sudden change in sunlight exposure; it can also help to rejuvenate the skin following exposure. Is there reasonable proof that aloe vera can help over-exposure to sunburn beyond empirical evidence that since time immemorial people used aloe vera for this? Other than the extensive research on burns, there is good quality research on the anti-ageing effect and effect on UV light exposure by Danhof, McKeown, Strickland and Yagi. But be aware, not all aloe vera products will give you the necessary molecules that help your skin to stand up to UV light or not enough of them.
What is the health benefit of sunlight? Sunlight makes vitamin D which actually is a pre-hormone and its production requires a pre-cholesterol molecule to get UV-B from sunlight onto the skin. Then the liver converts it to calcidiol (storage form) which then is converted by every body cell into calcitriol (a.k.a. activated vitamin D) Vitamin D is the most potent steroid in your entire body. Steroid hormones enable the manufacturing of proteins and enzymes by your genetic material (genome). Yet after you've produced about 20,000 units, sunshine begins to destroy vitamin D in the skin. In other words, the same sunlight that makes vitamin D in the first place begins to degrade it - a miracle of self control and safety. So the active form of vitamin D acts by enabling the genetic expression of proteins and enzymes crucial to health in hundreds of tissues throughout the body. One of the ways in which to increase vitamin D orally is via good, unpolluted fish oils but these are increasingly hard to find. To find out whether you are deficient, the best vitamin D test is 25(OH)D, also called 25-hydroxyvitamin D and optimal levels are 45-50 ng/mL or 115-128 nmol/L (these values are higher than the 'normal' values). The amount of vitamin D produced from sunlight depends on exposure time, latitude and altitude of location, amount of skin surface exposed, skin pigmentation and season. UV-B also stimulates the production of MSH (melanocyte-stimulating hormone), an important hormone in weight loss, energy production, and in giving you that wonderful tanned appearance (α-MSH ). However, UV-B does not penetrate very deeply into your skin. The darker the pigmentation or more tanned your skin, the less UV-B penetrates. Remember that glass allows only some 5% of UV-B to enter your home or your car, you must go outside to benefit from sunlight. The take home message is that sunlight has an awful lot going for it providing you avoid sunburn. According to Professor Michael Hollick, Professor of Medicine, Physiology and Biophysics at the Boston University Medical Centre it is now estimated that the 1,000 IU of vitamin D a day is needed to satisfy the body's requirement and maintain circulating concentrations of calcidiol of at least 30ng/mL. Too much vitamin D over a longer period of time can be toxic and cause calcification in the kidneys and heart. Fortunately the warning signs are easy to notice: anorexia, disorientation, dehydration, fatigue, weight loss, weakness and vomiting. Dr. Esther John, an epidemiologist at the Northern California Cancer Center, recommends taking a daily 10 to 15 minute walk in the sunshine as it not only clears your head, relieves stress and increases circulation, but also could cut your risk of breast cancer by 50%. We all enjoy the sunny weather: it can lift our spirits and make us feel happier and healthier. If you are sensible in the sun and follow these simple precautions including using Aloeride® Aloe Vera to support your skin from the inside, then there is no reason why you shouldn’t enjoy its positive benefits without the negative side effects.

Overtraining, Aloe Vera and probiotics

Overtraining, Aloeride® Aloe Vera and probiotics

Fortunately for most amateur athletes the problem of overtraining remains a theoretical issue. People training 4x a week or more may experience over-reaching or overtraining. And surprisingly enough, symptoms of overtraining can happen even to anoraks. This article describes useful aspects including the role of Aloeride® Aloe Vera and probiotics. Overtraining, also described as chronic fatigue, burnout and staleness has been defined as an imbalance between physical and/or psychological stress, training or competition and recovery. Early stages of overtraining result from ‘too much throttle and no breaking’ and are called the orthosympathetic form whilst in more advanced stages, your orthosympathetic tone gets exhausted enabling its opposite number, the parasympathetic system to become dominant. The orthosympathetic overtrainee is in permanent ‘fight or flight’ mode. Both fight and flight should be incidental challenges during which your adrenal glands pump out hormones like adrenaline (epinephrine), noradrenalin (norepinephrine) and cortisol, whilst indirectly raising human growth hormone (HGH) and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). These glands however are sprinter organs, they were not designed to cope with a marathon. The parasympathetic overtrainee mimics some of Addison’s disease symptoms hence it is referred to as Addisonoid overtraining. The marathon of fight and flight has exhausted the adrenal sprinter glands and they now fail to regulate hormonal concentrations properly, this now is a serious problem. On routine blood work the overtainee is likely to show progressive anaemias with low haemoglobin and low haematocrit. Athletes primarily complain of underperformance of course, other common symptoms are progressively susceptibility to common infections and injury, persistent high levels of fatigue, heavy muscles and depression. As said, an athletes' reaction to underperformance is often to increase training rather than to rest which exacerbates their recovery deficit (I am tired, but I feel better after exercise, so I exercise is the strategic equivalent of flogging a dead horse). Often symptoms are ignored until performance is chronically affected. Sleep disturbances like having difficulty in getting to sleep, waking up in the night and waking un-refreshed are experienced by some 90% of athletes suffering from overtraining. Other symptoms include loss of appetite, loss of weight, loss of competitive drive, increased emotional instability such as depression, anxiety, irritability and mental exhaustion, poor attitude to training and musculoskeletal soreness. A simple DIY monitoring system is by checking the morning heart rate. Take your pulse immediately upon waking whilst still in bed. If your waking pulse any day is elevated by more than 8 beats/minute above its average level for the preceding week you are falling into overtraining. Alternatively check your morning body weight, the weekly average weight should not vary by more than 2lbs. If it drops by more than 3lbs on any day from a previous stable body weight you are falling into overtraining. As far as laboratory tests go, a useful immunological marker for excessive exercise is salivary IgA whilst a useful stress marker is Cortisol/DHEA. The stress hormones Cortisol and DHEA are not released constantly throughout the day, but are secreted in a cycle called the circadian rhythm (highest values being in the morning and the lowest at night). When the adrenal glands become exhausted (parasympathetic phase) Cortisol and DHEA in the blood stream become imbalanced. Adrenal Stress Index uses four saliva samples to measure the adrenal rhythm and gives you a DHEA to Cortisol correlation. Of course hypothalamic-pituitary impairment of the corticotrophic axis causing adrenal insufficiency should be taken into account and specific testing of hypothalamus and pituitary gland may be considered. Three common pathways for overtraining are: o intensity / load excess o recovery deficit o nutritional deficiency To remedy the first two you need to lower stress load and increase recovery time. In severe overtraining athletes should stop training entirely for 7-14 days, increase sleep to 9 hours of solid sleep a night and increase broad spectrum antioxidant intake to 200% of usual intake. To support the adrenal glands you can supplement with good quality organic glandular extracts from government inspected, New Zealand or Australia free range animals that have not been fed hormones or antibiotics. Or you can use a complex homeopathic remedy like Glandula Suprarenalis Suis-Injeel (Forte). Appropriate supplementation with good quality DHEA should only be considered if an abnormal adrenal stress test dictates this. To remedy the last point you need to combine a right-for-you wholefood diet and should consider Aloeride® Aloe Vera and probiotics. Combined ignorance and arrogance has many athletes train 3 - 4x /wk without fuelling their bodies appropriately. The famous 5Ps: poor preparation produces poor performance open the gates towards overtraining, injury, degenerative changes and illness. Improving the immune system of athletes helps reduce the number and length of infections suffered by them. The large, highly immune modulating aloeride fraction within Aloeride® Aloe Vera together with good probiotics do exactly that. Also they improve the uptake of necessary nutrients. A double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over trial - published in Br J Sports Med. 2008 Feb 13 - was conducted in Australia over a four-month period of winter training of twenty healthy, elite male distance runners. The conclusion was that prophylactic administration of probiotics was associated with a substantial reduction in the number of days and severity of respiratory illness in a cohort of highly trained distance runners likely due to a two-fold (p=0.07) greater change in whole-blood culture interferon gamma (IFN-fx) compared with placebo. Athletes, anoraks or anybody else suffering from an imbalance between physical and/or psychological stress, training or competition and recovery should change that balance, and ingest Aloeride® Aloe Vera, probiotics and highly absorbable wholefood nutrition to recover.

Say ‘aloe’ to a fab travel companion

Say ‘aloe’ to a fab travel companion

You’ve packed your bags. You’ve got your tickets and you travel. Fantastic, but may have left something behind that should have been in your wash bag or beauty case. There are three things people commonly meet when going on holiday: sunshine, new food types and alcohol. And fancy there being one single herb that has something to offer for all three… Aloe vera is known to ease the effects of the above and good aloes may help your natural immune response. There is plenty of good research to underpin that aloe vera delivers these effects. Many people know aloe vera as a liquid in bottles, hardly the thing to pack into a suitcase! So you will be interested to know that there is one blisterfoiled, encapsulated aloe product available that is manufactured to pharmaceutical GMP standard.* It takes up no space in your travel bags (or your coat pocket) and, as it so happens, it contains way more working ingredients than other aloe products. Eases Digestion & Hangovers Travel guides immediately gravitate towards travel diarrhoea due to contaminated water (and ice cubes) or contaminated food stuffs. Sensible too, because during a two week vacation, up to 50% of people will have one or more episodes of it, the person suffering from it can feel very ill indeed and it can certainly be distressing enough to ruin a holiday or business trip. [Steffen R, DuPont H, Wilder-Smith A. Manual of Travel Medicine and Health, 2nd ed. BC Decker Inc., Ontario, Canada, 2003.] Fortunately for most European and American Continent travellers, things rarely get this drastic. But you’ll be surprised how many people do get a dicky tummy travelling. Aloeride® Aloe Vera placates the stomach and the gut lining (gastrointestinal tract), studies in aloe research show aloe to have ulceroprotection properties as well as to accelerate healing rates.** There are at least eight proper research papers on aloe’s natural anti-inflammatory effect, so a food irritated digestive tract will feel so much better for taking just a few capsules. It also is an extraordinary help the-day-after drinking beyond an elegant sufficiency of alcohol the night before, just two tiny capsules settle that horrible stomach feeling. Of course you’ll never need it for that but still. Eases Sunburn The seasoned traveller knows that on the beaches in the Caribbean you can get your back rubbed with a freshly cut chunk of aloe vera to appease the red skin. The interesting thing is that, when you take Aloeride® Aloe Vera orally - 2 capsules a day one week before and during your holiday - , you can achieve a similar effect, it helps the skin bounce back from a sudden change in sunlight exposure and is likely to keep your tan for longer. So one herb made to unrivalled standards may make your holiday more enjoyable still. * classified as grade D (EU grade) / class 100,000 (US class Federal Standard 209E) / ISO 8 ** GALAL EE, KANDIL A, HEGAZY E, EL GHOROURY M, GOBRAN W: Aloe Vera and gastrointestinal ulceration, J Drug Res Egypt 7:73-77, 1975.; GUPTA MB, NATH R, GUPTA GP, BHARGAVA KP: Antiulcer activity of some plant triterpenoids, Indian J Med Res 73:649-652, 1981.

Aloe Vera and Climate Change

What is aloe vera, Aloeride® and Climate Change

Among plants aloe vera may be an Ugly Betty but it has a 4,000+ year track record of being hugely valued for improving both health and beauty. Earliest recorded pharmaceutical use dates back to 2100 BC (Sumeria/Babylon), also hieroglyphic inscriptions of aloe dated to 4100 BC were found in the tomb of an Egyptian Court physician. Queen Cleopatra and Queen Nefertiti, both renown for their stunning beauty, used aloe vera to stay healthy and beautiful. Aloe vera today still is unfailingly popular for the same reasons it was valued for throughout the ages. Although aloe vera looks like a cactus, it actually is a succulent and a member of the Liliacae family (like the onion, garlic, asparagus, lily and the tulip). Unsurprisingly one of aloe vera’s nick names is ‘lily of the desert’ because that is where it grows naturally. To survive long periods of droughts these xeroids plants have the ability to retain and preserve large quantities of water. Being able to survive such a harsh environment has interesting implications for you. When for instance an aloe leaf gets damaged it instantaneously repairs this damage thereby avoiding loss of water. Failure to quickly repair the injury site would result in evaporation of its precious reservoir and might jeopardise the plant’s health or survival. Such tissue repair and other powerful aloe vera properties are transferred to you when you ingest Aloeride® Aloe Vera. There are more than 350 varieties of aloe vera yet only 4 contain significant healing properties, the most nutrient dense of these is aloe vera barbadensis miller, the plant used to make Aloeride® Aloe Vera. Aloe vera is a complex, interacting mixture of some 300 constituents including beta-linked polysaccharides, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, lignins, saponins and anthraquinones. The challenge in processing aloe vera is how to extract all of these synergistic molecules without damaging them or without significantly altering their ratios to one another. Next you must deliver all these synergistic molecules in meaningful quantities for only then can the many properties attributed to aloe vera manifest themselves. We chose to grow the best and process in the cleverest possible way and as a result Aloeride® Aloe Vera emerges as the top flight aloe vera product in multiple, independent laboratory tests. With a nick name like ‘lily of the desert’ you won’t be surprised to learn that aloe vera cannot tolerate frost. Its water content freezes at 28° Fahrenheit (minus 2°Celcius) causing the plant to die. Consequently most commercial growth of aloe vera happens south of the Equator. North of the Equator commercial growth still is precarious, aloe growers in the ‘dust bowl’ of southern Spain got clobbered when in February 2005 temperatures fell to minus 10° in Madrid and minus 20° in Aragon. But also south of the Equator the climate is changing, until recently Australia was a large producer of aloe vera like it was of wheat, cotton lint, wine grapes and rice. Their prolonged droughts caused a drop in wheat production by over 58% which made wheat prices surge to a 10-year high, these drought also affected Australia’s aloe vera production where one company alone converted some 7,000 tonnes of aloe vera leaf into around three million litres of gel each year. An aloe vera plant needs 150mL water a month as otherwise it dies. Plants that do survive the drought generate more aloin and emodin, resulting in their gel having an even more bitter taste and stronger odour than usual. It is what dehydrated aloe does for self-preservation because emodin and aloin have anti-inflammatory, bactericidal, virucidal, fungicidal and anti-cancer effect. These hydroxyanthraquinone compounds become life savers as the dehydrated plant fights cell disorganisation and bacteria, viruses or fungi that prey on it. However, what is good for a distressed aloe vera plant isn’t necessarily good for you. In the lower gastrointestinal tract barbaloin molecules are hydrolysed to create aloe emodin which acts as a laxative by increasing water retention and mucus secretion in the large intestine. Aloe vera crop surviving droughts may come with a sting in its tail that causes mayhem in sensitive digestive tracts. In order to achieve product consistency in a changing climate, we perform routine laboratory tests on trial processed harvests and base our purchases on those outcomes. The effect of climate change reaches aloe vera crops worldwide and to date Aloeride® Aloe Vera has needed to make two rejections because of our very exacting Quality Control. Climate change certainly makes optimal harvesting more challenging than it has been in the past decades but the customer feedback shows that keeping to our unique standards makes an appreciable difference to customer’s quality of life. An Ugly Betty aloe vera may be, but in Aloeride® Aloe Vera it waves its magic wand supremely.

Aloe Vera Wound healing, easier with Aloe Vera

Wound healing, easier with Aloeride Aloe Vera

Traditionally, Aloe Vera is thought of as a source of efficient remedy for many conditions of the skin. Either for maintaining the beauty of the skin or for speeding the wound healing process, Aloe Vera has always been at hand in home first aid. Considering these facts, later researchers saw in Aloe Vera’s soothing properties a possibility to exploit it at its’ full extent, offering at the same time to people all over the world the opportunity to benefit from its’ curing power. One of the objectives of Aloeride Aloe Vera products is the recovering and the maintenance of a better skin. Better skin means, among other countless implications, healing as nice and as fast as possible any wound. Skin wounds are of many sorts, but they all refer to a more or less profound damage made on the skin by different objects. They are either closed wounds – like contusions, hematomas (also known as tumors) and crushing injuries – or open wounds, such as incisions, lacerations, abrasions, puncture wounds or even penetration and gunshot wounds, which are more severe. We are all exposed to the risk of getting injured. Children, while playing with all sorts of objects or running and jumping around, have a particular tendency to harm themselves due to their carelessness or if they are not supervised by parents or other grown-ups. Relying on Aloeride Aloe Vera capsules can ease our lives from a double point of view when it comes to wounds. First of all, Aloeride accelerates the healing process of those already made, and secondly it renders us more relaxed with respect to other possible wounds. For children, in particular, playing is a way to explore and to learn about life. Forbidding them to participate to certain activities on the assumption they will get hurt is not a very inspired measure. They will be protected indeed, but they will lack some formative experiences necessary for their growing up. Of course, no one says to let the children do as they like and no one recommends or promotes responsibility. But Aloeride Aloe Vera offers the possibility to take the opportunities that life happens to put forward and to make the best of them, lessening the worries which commonly prevent us from acting or behaving in a more spontaneous way. Nothing about wounds should encourage us to joke on them. They can be serious and could result in some even more serious complications. Aloeride Aloe Vera supports, as stated before, the healing process and the fact that Aloeride means ingesting the Aloe extract instead of topical application, as unusual as it may sound, is much more efficient. An impressive testimonial shows the genuine potency of Aloeride: a person suffering from severe burns on the face and other parts of the body healed so beautifully that the doctors were puzzled, and at the same time pleasantly surprised, too. Aloeride is an authentic remedy for wounds. The historic use of Aloe partially sustains the efficiency of Aloeride, but the latest technology used in processing Aloeride should break any doubts. If wounds are always a possibility, Aloeride Aloe Vera is certainly the necessary remedy.

Aloe Vera and the pill of happiness Aloeride

Aloeride Aloe Vera and the pill of happiness

Happiness is one of those concepts people have always tried to precisely define and, in spite of their efforts and failure to reach to an exact definition, everyone still has at least a vague idea about what happiness means to them. Unfathomable as it may seem, happiness, as a goal, is what determines people to act and it can be, at least from a certain perspective and within some limits, characterized as a state of physical comfort conjoint with a mental state of well-being. If body and spirit is what we all are, then body and spirit should be those things to which a definition of happiness must refer. Aloe Vera is an ideal source of nourishment for both body and mind. Apart from the fact that a cure based on Aloe prevents anyone from a large range of ailments and disorders, it is also a remedy for many other diseases. There is virtually no part of the body left uncovered by the incredible variety of Aloe products. From head to toes, from bowels to skin, every centimeter of the body is taken care of by the miraculous extract of Aloe. But can things be simpler and more efficient when it comes to all those needs we have and all those things able to satisfy them? Nothing would seem more natural than to use toothpaste when tooth care is in question, or creams and lotions when talking about face and skin in general, or laxatives when it comes to constipation. This is the ordinary picture. What is truly exceptional and almost unbelievable is the hypothesis of a single pill able to replace all those too many and too annoying products. The good part of this hypothesis is that it no longer represents a theory, but is a fact. Aloeride Aloe Vera is a wonderfully designed pill that has a general action on the body. Working on the immunity system, it protects us from many unexpected and unseen perils we expose ourselves in everyday life, and that we don’t even think of. A mere cold, a stomachache, a surprising migraine are always considered possibilities. They could happen to us, of course, but not today, nor in the near future. We are all right now and we don’t need any protection yet. It is obvious the contradiction hidden in this attitude. First we admit our frailty and, on the other hand we decide to postpone the right thing to do. Those who have suffered a long time from a particular disease and have undergone a treatment with Aloeride products are much wiser than people who didn’t. They now know that to be happy is to recover a silky skin after the acne has ravaged their faces, or to move carelessly after curing a bothering repetitive stomachache, or speak face to face to other people without being embarrassed or thinking of their bad breath. A healthy body is a crucial premise for a better life. As for the mental state, it is to be mentioned that many psychological disorders are grounded in physiological conditions. The hidden chemistry of our bodies results sometimes into chronic neurosis, depressions, general fatigue and so on. Instead of ingesting huge quantities of pills that only work on the symptoms, one should always rely on remedies that work on the causes. Aloeride Aloe Vera capsules will give unexpectedly satisfying results. So, if you are still skeptic about what happiness means and, moreover, you doubt that the Aloe Vera capsules work, the step to take is talking to people that are now grateful for having been given the chance to try Aloeride products and to listen to their testimonials. The word goes that you truly treasure something only it is lost. You could just believe that saying and take all necessary cautions to protect your health, mental and physical too, or you could just do it the hard way: don’t believe it, be irresponsible, and after loosing your health and finally recover it, you will be happy.

Aloe Vera, a buffer for food and drink allergies

Aloeride, a buffer for food and drink allergies

Being used to want certain things, we usually try to acquire them. Whether it’s difficult or easy to get what we desire, this is not the point here. The point is to already having obtained the object of our wishes and not to be able to enjoy it. This is the case with certain foods or drinks. Food and drink allergies can make us uncomfortable, always to cautious and suspicious of what we are about to eat or drink, and even to feel sorry because our dietary habits are forced to spin around a few dishes we are already bored with. Things look even more dramatic in cases in which one can remember a time where they enjoyed a certain food or drink, but in the meanwhile they have developed an allergic reaction to it. It must be pretty unpleasant to hunger after a certain food and to resent it at the same time because you anticipate the disagreeable effects it will have on you. Violent reactions to food or drinks are divided into allergies and intolerance, or sensitivity, and must not be mistaken. Food or drink sensitivity is triggered when we ingest certain substances that our body can not process because of a lack of specific enzymes necessary to that substance’s digestion, or because the organism simply can not tolerate some chemicals, natural or not, that the food or drink contains. It is signaled by a series of symptoms: gas, constipation, diarrhea, IBS, skin rash, headaches and cough. Allergy, on the other hand, is an immune response to some allergens, or food proteins that generate the allergy, and has a partially different symptomatology: soft tissues (tongue, lips, eyelids, etc.) are affected by swelling, lesions and itches, diarrhea, constipation, vomiting, culminating sometimes in anaphylactic shock. Obviously, all these reactions can make someone miserable. Most common foods generating allergies are milk, eggs, seafood, shellfish, peanuts and tree nuts, soy and wheat. How diminished can a diet be without all these nutrients? Is there a chance to begin enjoying them again? Aloeride Aloe Vera is an efficient way to regain the possibility of consuming foods and drinks banned for so long from your diet. There are cases of people reporting an increased tolerance to substances they haven’t even thought to ingest again after undergoing terrible reactions to them. The fact that Aloeride operates on the immunity system guarantees that allergic reactions, as immunity responses to some compounds found in food or drinks, can be dealt with. Using Aloeride for food or drinks allergies does not mean one should start gobbling everything forbidden before. It would be unwise and irresponsible. But Aloeride Aloe Vera may surprise you. The least you can do it take Aloeride and then observe the way your organism responds to substances it formerly resented. Cautions will always have to be taken, but the improvement of your life style will be noticeable. You will be at ease casually eating or drinking things you usually try to avoid, which means new possibilities are opened to you. Your diet will broaden and you will get a feeling of satisfaction due to the fact than now you can take pleasure in foods or drinks healthy people already are bored with. The most important is that Aloeride offers you an opportunity to learn that simple things like food are worth being rightfully appreciated, especially after a period of constant prohibition and frustration.

Aloe Vera, or how to reach to a healthy and beautiful smile

Aloeride, or how to reach to a healthy and beautiful smile

Aloe Vera is renown for its’ potency to soothe all sorts of disorders. Its’ historic use links it to beauty care routine or to more slight sores, such as sunburns, scratches, or small injuries. It was not until lately that its’ more significant curing virtues have been discovered and proven. People suffering from serious diseases who have underwent a treatment with Aloe products showed that these products were satisfactory enough and surprisingly efficient. One of their many applications regards teeth care or general dentistry. Contemporary society seems to stress teeth care as a crucial point of our life, both from a hygienic reason and an aesthetic one. Digestion begins in the mouth due to the chemical action of various substances located there and also because of the more mechanical function of teeth. Chewing should never be understated. Moreover, the cultural significance of smile seems to amplify the urge to pay attention the quality and the state our teeth are in. Almost all toothpaste commercials underline the health aspect and the visual side of a vigorous dentition. So, if you want to ensure a reliable starting point for your digestion, or if you want to display – or at least not to be embarrassed by – your smile, you should pay a little attention to your dentist’s suggestions. How do Aloe Vera products affect our teeth, and why should we choose them over the classical toothpastes? If we learned a little about the general properties of Aloe Vera, we should already know that it prevents infection caused by bacteria, viruses or fungi, it stimulates cell regeneration and has a general purifying action, not to mention its’ calming effect. Therefore, Aloe is an excellent solution to a range of mouth problems, like gingivitis, peridontitis, stomatitis, bad breath, reduces the possibility of plaque, not to mention the care it takes of the soft, fragile tissues in the mouth. Obviously, a great amount of benefits that usual products can only pretend to guarantee. Now, how does Aloeride Aloe Vera deal with oral hygiene, considering all we have stated about the Aloe products in general? Most of the Aloe products designed for dentistry come in traditional shapes, that is, toothpaste, gel, sprays. On the other hand, the way Aloeride stands as a health product is not at all similar to those. The technology used to process Aloeride Aloe Vera extract capsules fits very well its’ goal, that is, to preserve the active ingredients and to avoid tampering with them. This is why we these tiny capsules contain a certain amount of Aloe powder. Can these capsules fit the specificity of teeth care? The logo behind Aloeride is that a genuine treatment should work from the inside to the outside. What is visible to the eye is always grounded on an invisible process developed underneath the surface of what is observable. Aloeride Aloe Vera products work on the immunity system, thus generating an overall protection for the entire organism, teeth included. A strong reason for using these capsules is that, compared to common other products, it avoids involving certain ingredients assumed to alter the quality of Aloe extract. Though these elements – Sorbitol, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Carrageenan and so on – do not harm the tooth in itself, they inhibit the effects Aloe is supposed to have. So, a toothpaste boasting with its’ Aloe ingredient is virtually an ordinary one, as the extract is in such a degree altered by the other parts of the paste that it remains inactive. Taking care of teeth is one of the many objectives Aloeride Aloe Vera has. It is coherent with a more general goal, that is, to offer a feeling of general state of well-being. While or after using Aloe capsules one should no longer need to care about mouth problems – but it doesn’t mean daily hygiene should be abandoned, on the contrary, it should be maintained – and should be free to charmingly smile whenever the occasion occurs.

Aloe Vera as a guaranteed solution for a perfect skin

Aloeride as a guaranteed solution for a perfect skin

Eternal life had always been a fantasy haunting human imagination. As it proved to be out of our reach, ancestors invented all sorts of gods endowed with this quality, and restricted their own hopes to more tangible ideals, like living as long as possible. But having a long life full of sores and aches, shortages and failures is not at all better than a short, happy and intense one. To live means, in some respects, to notice your own decay without being able to prevent it. This decay concerns, at least in part, the loss of beauty and an increased predisposition to become ill. Few are those old men and women still energetic and young on the inside looking back with satisfaction at their lives and keen on living onward. For the rest of the people, is there any support, any hope? Can they delay the effects of aging? Aloe Vera is a worldwide used remedy against plenty of disorders, but is also known for its’ properties of extending life. And not anyway, but at the same time preserving the beauty and the vigor we all enjoy while still young. What is, in this case, the difference between Aloe products in general an Aloeride Aloe Vera? To begin with, it is worth mentioning that getting old is not a process taking place only at the surface of the body. It also affects the inner workings of the organism. Topical application of Aloe creams and lotions can only have, as it is expected, a local effect, and also a temporary one. Wrinkles, the main sign aging marks us with, for instance, need to be taken care of constantly, and results can be disappointing. Liver spots can also make us nostalgic about those times when we could be proud to display our silky, impeccable skin, to regret aging and to compel us to search a way to get rid of them. As said above, topical application of common skin care products either based on Aloe extract or not, has a partial effect. Aloeride, on the other hand, works from the inside in order to look better on the outside. Better looking skin is the effect of a general state of well-being. Because in the Aloeride capsules the Aloe extract is not altered on the influence of other ingredients used in processing other products, we can be sure of its’ quality. This is why an ingested a hundred percent pure pill can guarantee for genuine results, whereas creams and lotions suffocate the main Aloe ingredient up to neutralizing it. Authorized voices speak of the surprising effects Aloeride Aloe Vera has on skin. During everyday life we expose ourselves to an amount of agents harmful for our skin. Sun exposure, improper diet, stress, smoking are just a few of those circumstances damaging the quality of our skin. But Aloeride can provide an increased strength and also works on the damage already done. Results show immediately, only within three weeks, fulfilling the promises made by Aloeride Aloe Vera products. So, why invest money, time and, most importantly, hopes on deceitful cosmetics that can only hide wrinkles and liver spots? Why try countless creams that can only pretend to make the wrinkles go away and to make liver spots disappear? Choosing Aloeride is a guarantee for a high standard product that will sweep away all those nuisances that come along with age, and not by masking skin flaws, but by curing them from the inside.

Aloe Vera As a Potential Treatment For Gastrointestinal Inflammatory Diseases

Aloeride As a Potential Treatment For Gastrointestinal Inflammatory Diseases

Aloeride Aloe Vera has been found to effectively prevent and treat certain autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis. It has been shown aloe kills bacterium, which causes chronic duodenal and gastric ulcers caused by a bacterial infection. It has also been shown to reduce acid secretion. Drugs were discovered to reduce acid secretion, but people with ulcers did not seem to heal or their improvement would only be temporary. Then they would relapse and have more serious episodes of ulceration with all the painful symptoms. Chronic gastritis and stomach ulcers can lead to a tendency to cancer of the stomach, just as ulcerative colitis can lead to colon cancer. When looking into the studies of aloe you will find it decreases stomach acid production, which will protect the lining of the stomach from ulcers and it kills the bacteria, which has a tendency to lead to chronic stomach irritation. The following is a study on the effects of aloe vera on patients with inflammatory bowel disease while under therapeutic evaluation for their condition. The Aim is to assess the effects of aloe vera in vitro on the production of reactive oxygen metabolites, eiosanoids, and interleukin-8, which could be pathogens in inflammatory bowel disease. The Results were aloe vera gel had an inhibitory effect on reactive oxygen metabolite production; 50% inhibition at 1 in 1000 dilution and at 1 in 10-50 dilution with biopsies. Aloe vera inhibited the production of prostaglandin E2 by 30% at 1 in 50 dilution, but had no effect on thromboxane B2 production. The release of the interleukin-8 cells dropped by 20% with the aloe vera diluted at 1 in 100, but not a 1 in 10 or 1 in 1000 dilutions. The Conclusion of it all is the anti-inflammatory actions of aloe vera gel in vitro provide back up for the proposal aloe vera may have a therapeutic effect in inflammatory bowel disease. Another study performed on aloe vera to study it effectiveness with inflammatory bowel disease. The Aim of this study is to perform a double blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial of the efficiency and safety of aloe vera gel for the treatment of mildly to moderate active ulcerative colitis. The Method will be to use forty-four hospital outpatients who could be evaluated were randomly given oral aloe gel or a placebo at 100 ml twice a day for 4 weeks, in a 2: 1 ratio. The primary outcome was clinical remission, sigmoidoscopic remission, and histological remission. The secondary outcome measures included changes in the Simple Clinical Colitis Activity Index, Baron score, histology score, hemoglobin, platelet count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein and albumin. The Results were clinical remission, improvement and responses in nine, about 30%, 11, about 37%, and 14, about 47% of the 30 patients who received the aloe vera gel compared with one, 7% and two, 14% of 14 patients taking placebo. The Simple Clinical Colitis Activity Index and histological scores decreased noticeably during treatment with aloe vera, compared to no decreases with the placebo. The Conclusion is aloe vera taken orally for 4 weeks produced a clinical response more often than placebo; it also reduced the histological disease activity and appeared to be safe. Additional evaluation of the potential of aloe vera gel is needed in inflammatory bowel disease.

Aloe Vera can Heal Wounds

Aloeride Aloe Vera Can Heal Wounds

Aloe Vera is pretty much commonplace these days. You can find in creams, shampoos, body wash, and in some cases even in toothpaste. They all claim to use pure aloe vera in their products. Even thought aloe vera is renowned for its medicinal purposes there is only one type of aloe vera plant, which has these medical properties and that is the Barbadensis Miller type of aloe vera plant. This is the type of aloe vera plant used in the making of the capsule Aloeride. The aloe barbadensis Miller is an herbal plant, which is being used for massive studies. The compounds in the plant are always identifiable active compounds. This is one of the studies focused on one or more of the compounds in the aloe barbadensis Miller plant. There have been many studies and writings about the wound healing properties of Aloeride Aloe Vera. We have all had burns, cut and scrapes, but the body experiences injuries on many levels we don’t see. The body responses to these injuries in the same way it does every injury, which is an overreaction, which ends up dragging out the healing process. Certain properties of the aloe vera plant add to the acceleration of the healing process to the injury. Many of the compounds of the aloe vera prevent or stop inflammation caused by injury and the inflammation cause be aging, immune dysfunction, cancer and many other diseases. Many types of trauma can trigger the response of inflammation by the body. The inflammation can be external as well as internal. The most obvious symptoms of inflammation are redness, tenderness, heat, swelling and pain. Whether the inflammation is intense or constant, slight or acute, the symptoms are the same. Sometimes the inflammation can be undetectable because the process of inflammation can take place on many different levels of the genetic order all at the same time. These can range from the molecular or the biochemical level. They can also continue on up and through the interaction of the bodies systems to the appearance of the symptoms and signs. When it is found a material has anti-inflammatory properties, which is to say it has the ability to slow down or stop inflammation, it is very important. Aloe vera gel has been found to posses the anti-inflammatory property, which is also found in the Aloeride In recent years, it has been noted that very slow, silent types of inflammation, which causes the subtle signs of aging. This does include the hardening of the arteries, which seems to lead to many other deteriorating conditions, which accompany aging. Studies have shown the addition of aloe to the diet of 5,000 people with existing coronary artery disease has created a vast improvement in their overall coronary well-being. One of the causes of inflammation and aging is the corrosion of substances, which allow the formation of free radicals. Free radicals are atoms or molecule, which does not have an electron so it is unstable. Other cells can be damaged by these free radicals because to make themselves complete they will steal an electron from another cell, thereby making that cell a free radical. This causes a chain reaction, which can cause damage to the cells, DNA, RNA and certain enzymes. This enables diseases including cancer to do as they wish because there is nothing to stop them. When free radicals can be normally produced during the cell metabolism, but the body produces several antioxidant enzymes to counteract these free radicals. Free radicals can also be caused by the environment especially in the pollution we live with every day, such as heavy metals and chemicals in water and food. Aloeride has proven to be a strong antioxidant and hunter of free radicals in this way they protect the body.

Aloe Vera fights Wrinkles

Aloeride Aloe Vera Fights Wrinkles

For years beauty specialists have known Aloe vera can stimulate cell growth. Aloeride has the same abilities found in aloe vera. No one has ever bothered to see why aloe has this ability. Research has been performed to discover the secret to aloe vera’s abilities.

Studies conducted by Dr. Ivan E. Danhof, M.D., Ph.D., president of North Texas Research Laboratories and a retired Professor of Physiology from the University of Texas have shown it is the interior gel from aloe vera, which was increasing the production of fibroblast cells faster than normal cells were being reproduced.

Found in the dermis of the skin, the fibroblast cells are in charge of producing collagen, which is the skin’s support protein. Fibroblast will slow the collagen production because of natural aging and exposure to the sun. As aging continues, the quality of collagen is tapering and wrinkling will become deeper. Dr. Danhof found the aloe not only improved the fibroblast cell accuracy, but also the gel quickened the making of collagen.

It is still unknown exactly, which ingredient in aloe gives aloe the ability to affect fibroblast cells and collagen production. The polysaccharides, which is a sugary substance found in aloe gives the gel its tremendous moisture fastening property are known to have some involvement on aging. Dr. Danhof believes the polysaccharides could reorganize epidermal cells located in the skin’s thin protective surface barrier. Aging causes these cell in this region to become loose. Water and moisture can easily escape causing skin cells not to mature properly. Many things such as dirt, bacteria, etc. can easily gain access causing dry, scaly skin takes over. Making the epidermal cell fit tighter together complexions will grow younger looking and the protective covering to the inner layers of skin is working together again.

This same moisture binding action works against the severe dryness, which happens with burned tissue. Aloe works so well on burns there are hospitals from Canada to Texas and California using aloe as treatment in their burn wards.

Dr. Danhof also found aloe to have a penetrating ability, which can penetrate the skin quicker than water. This is unusual because aloe is 99.5 percent water. Yet it must have an ingredient, which gives it the ability to penetrate fast. Plain water cannot penetrate to the layers of the skin where the aloe can go.

Aloe has two other qualities, which are well-known benefits. The calming and healing change it seems to have on damaged skin. Cuts, scrapes, burns, bug-bites are all eased immediately when gently rubbed with the thick gel. Some medical diseases like acne will also responds well to the aloe because of the inflammation of the skin’s pores, which also produces swelling, irritation, pimples, and pustules, but the calming and healing benefits of the aloe helps the diseases.

As we age, our skin is probably the only organ we have that cannot be replaced. Since we are only going to get one we need to do all we can to take care of it. The aloe vera in Aloeride is also packed with vitamins and minerals. It doesn’t matter whether you are young or getting older you need to incorporate Aloeride Aloe Vera into your daily routine.

Aloeride Has Anti-Diabetic Potential Aloe Vera for Diabetics

Aloeride Aloe Vera Has Anti-Diabetic Potential

Plants have been used as a source of medicine through out the years of time. The use of plants in treatment of various human ailments has been noted in many of the ancient Indian literature. There are about 45,000 plant species in India and several thousands have been used as medicine because of the purported medicinal properties. In the last few decades the studies performed on the plants mentioned in the literature or were used traditionally for diabetes have shown to actually have anti-diabetic properties. The study reviews 45 of the anti-diabetic plants and their products have shown experimental or clinical anti-diabetic activity. The most commonly studied and the most successful of these plants used in association of diabetes and their problems are the Allium cepa, Allium sativum, Aloe vera, Cajanus cajan, Coccinia indica, Caesalpinia bonducella, Ficus bengalenesis, Gymnema sylvestre, Momordica charantia, Ocimum sanctum, Pterocarpus marsupium, Swertia chirayita, Syzigium cumini, Tinospora cordifolia and Trigonella foenum graecum. A varying degree of hypoglycemia and anti-hyperglycemic activity were shown in a variety of degrees in all of the plants. In preliminary clinical and experimental observations, the dried sap of the aloe plant is a traditional remedy used for diabetes in the Arabian Peninsula. In fact it is one of the many traditional remedies used in diabetes in the Arabian Peninsula. 5 patients wit non-insulin-dependent diabetes and in Swiss albino mice were studied. With one half teaspoon of the aloes ingested daily for 4-14 weeks, the fasting serum glucose level fell in every patient from 273 to 151 with no weight gain or loss. In normal mice, the doses of 10 mg twice daily of glibenclamide and 500 mg twice daily of aloes induce hypoglycaemia (an abnormally low level of sugar) after 5 days. 71 from 91, versus 130 in the control animals only glibenclamide was effective after 3 days. Glibenclamide and aloes noticeably reduced the fasting plasma glucose in the diabetic mice after 3 days. Only the aloes was useful after that and by day number 7, the plasma glucose was 394 versus 64, in the controls and 726 in the glibenclamide treated group. The conclusion to this study was aloes contains a hypoglycaemic agent, which lowers the blood glucose, however the specific cause is unknown. In this study the objective is to perform a methodical review of the published literature on the effectiveness and the safety of the use of herbal supplements, vitamins and minerals, and therapies as glucose control in patients with diabetes. An electronic literary search was perform of Medline, Oldmedline, Cochrane Library Database, and performed hand searches and consulting with experts in the field. This study also included any available clinical studies involving human participants and examined glycemic control. When data had been extracted in a consistent manner, two independent investigators assessed the procedural quality of the randomized controlled trials using the Jadad scale. The Results found a total of 108 trials examining 35 herbs, whether single or in combination, and 9 vitamin/mineral supplements, which involved 4,565 patients with diabetes or weakened glucose tolerance. The criteria was met and analyzed. There were 58 controlled clinical trials, 42 were randomized and 16 were non-randomized trials, which mostly used patients with type 2 diabetes. Of the 58 trials, the direction of the evidence form improved glucose control was positive in 76%, which equals to 44 of the 58. Very few adverse effects were reported. The Conclusion is still insufficient evidence to draw definitive conclusions about the effectiveness of individual herbs, however they do appear to be safe. With the data available it does suggest several of the herbal supplements need further study because of their positive results in the preliminary trials. These are Aloe vera, vanadium, nopal and a few others. With Aloeride containing pure Aloe vera it is safe to say, the findings show positive results in lowering glucose among type II diabetics, and it has been found to be safe to take. Check into the other qualities of Aloeride with pure Aloe Vera. You just might be surprised.

Aloe Vera Helping The Heart

Aloeride Aloe Vera Helping The Heart

One of the most important health challenges of our time is the preventing of hardening of the arteries. Hardening of the arteries is one of the major consequences of aging. Fortunately now days there are a number of things, which can be done, to prevent and in some cases reverse arteriosclerosis or hardening of the arteries. Because of the aloe, Aloeride Aloe Vera can benefit the circulatory system. Aloe lowers triglycerides and LDL or the “bad cholesterol” and raises HDL the “good cholesterol”. Several studies have shown when aloe is added to the diet, symptoms and signs of coronary artery disease disappeared. The people in the study never developed heart problems. The same studies noted patients were able to discontinue their prescriptions of the pills they had taken the in past for chest pain, blood pressure and blood sugar control. A study done in 1985 before the information regarding aloe vera and Aloeride was known used 5,000 people with acknowledged coronary artery disease and angina pectoris, which is chest pain on physical exertion, which indicates a lake of circulation of blood to the heart muscles, were fed with aloe vera added to their diet. The results were no more signs of angina pectoris, no development of lethal heart attacks and prescription drugs were no longer needed to control symptoms, but didn’t cure them. Hardening of the arteries is a complex disease, which involves microscopic damage to small and large arteries alike. Hardened plague lines the arteries. When the small arteries have a plague line, which builds up, the smaller the passageway making blood circulation difficult. The organs and tissues needing the blood and the oxygen are deprived, which causes damage to the organs and tissue due to the lack of oxygen and blood, and the build up of carbon dioxide and other toxic waste, which should be carried away by the arteries. When the coronary arteries are blocked, blood no longer flows freely; it will sludge through the arteries. With physical exertion the heart muscle needs more oxygen. When it request for more oxygen and blood is not delivered, a heart muscle is damaged and it dies. When the heart muscles dies, it is called a heart attack. If the right muscle of the heart dies, the person will die instantly. By reducing the platelet stickiness, Aloe vera alleviates the coronary syndrome the same thing aspirin and Plavex are currently used for. The usual job for the platelet is blood clotting to stop bleeding when blood vessels are injured. When the platelets become sticky more than normal, the platelet will form a clot in a blood vessel whose walls are lined with too much plaque. Sometimes it will permanently shut off the blood flow through that artery or blood vessel. The clotting can cause damage to the tissue of the brain by causing a stroke and kidneys in people with hardening of the arteries and those with diabetes. The diabetes will accelerate the process of small vessel disease and the damage to organs and tissues. Aloe vera has the ability to reduce platelet stickiness and decrease the inflammation caused by microvascular injury. It reduces the build up and can even reverse the hardening of the arteries as well as prevent it.

Aloe Vera helps with Allergies Aloe Vera and Allergies

Aloeride Aloe Vera Helps With Allergies

Aloeride Aloe Vera has been found to bring relief from allergies and hay fever due to pollen, dander, chemicals, perfume, dust mites, and foods, just to name a few. There are many causes of allergies. In some it is the hereditary weaknesses of digestion, nutrition, and environment. In order to reduce the battle with allergies it is necessary to strengthen connective tissue called collagen. When the collagen tissue is weakened in the nasal passages, lung tissues and intestinal tract cell walls allow foreign invaders to enter the blood stream, which causes and allergic reaction. You can begin to reverse the allergy sensitivity by taking Aloeride Aloe Vera The aloe vera has an acidic pH, which persuades the body to produce the proper amounts of hydrochloric acid to improve your digestion. Those with allergies sometimes are inflicted with a weak digestion, which will not allow the body to absorb the nutrients from the foods and supplements fed to the body. Once the body starts receiving the proper amount of nutrients, it will start producing collagen and will build up tissue structure to ward off the allergies. The aloe vera contains the glycomannan complex, which provides additional help to strengthen the tissue cell walls. Natural anti-inflammatory and analgesics are found in the yellow sap portion of the aloe vera, which will help reduce the swelling, the pain and the skin irritation. Camestrol, B-sitosterol, lupeol, and salicylic acid also found in aloe vera will help provide additional allergy relief. By detoxifying and cleansing the liver many people have found relief from skin irritants like hives, eczema and psoriasis. The cleansing and detoxifying of the liver is something, which needs to be done like Spring Cleaning about once a year. It has been found the detoxifying of the liver using aloe vera can enhance liver functions. In fact there are many compounds found in aloe vera, which can help the liver function. A pesky fungus called candida albicans can also be part of the problem. This fungus is present in most people in varying amounts. If large amounts can be found in the body candida can cause many problems. Symptoms include a white-coated tongue, yeast and fungal infections, jock itch, allergy, chemical sensitivity and poor digestion. To prevent the growth of Candida a diet high in proteins and vegetables and low in carbohydrates and sugars can help. Aloeride Aloe Vera along with a good probiotic supplement can help with this problem. A study was done on the Chemomodulatory action of Aloe vera on the profiles of enzymes associated with carcinogen metabolism and antioxidant status in regulation mice. The study was done to provide date on the fact “Aloe facilitates detoxification providing chemoprotection against carcinogens and other toxins, including drugs. The effect of two doses of 30 micol and 60 microl per day per mice for 14 days of the fresh leaf pulp extract of Aloe vera was examined on carcinogen-metabolizing phase-I and phase-II enzymes, antioxidant enzymes, glutahione content, lactate dehydrogenase and lipid peroxidation in the liver of mice. The modulatory effect of the pulp extract was also examined on extrahepatic organs (lungs, kidney and forestomach) for the activities of glutathione S-transferase. DT-diophorase, superoxide dismutase and catalase. The positive control mice were treated with butylated hydroxyansiola (BHA). Aloe vera notably reduced the level of cytochrome P450 and cytochrome b5. Thus, Aloe vera is clearly the inducer of phase-II enzyme system. Treatment with both doses of Aloe caused a decrease in malondiaidehyde (MDA) formation and the activity of lactate dehydrogens in the liver, suggesting its role in protection against proozidant-induced membrane and cellular damage. The microsomal and cytosolic protein was substantially improved by the Aloe vera, indicating a possibility of its involvement in the induction of protein synthesis. BHA, an Antioxidant compound, provided the authenticity of our assay protocol and response of animals against modulator. The pulp extract was effective in inducing GST, DTD, DOD and catalase as measured in extrahepatic organs. Besides the liver, other organs such as the lungs, kidneys and forestomach were also influenced by Aloe vera in a favorable way in order to detoxify reactive metabolites, including chemical carcinogens and drugs. The study was performed in the Cancer Biology Laboratory, School of Life Sciences, Jawaharial Nehru University y, in New Delhi, India.

Aloe Vera Probiotics and Overtraining

Aloeride. Probiotics, and Overtraining

The exercise bug has bit many of us in the world today, but some of us will go overboard. You may know them, they are at the gym 3 or 4 times a week giving it their all. Many people who are training 3 or 4 times a week could experience overtraining. Overtraining can be described as burnout or chronic fatigue. It is an imbalance of physical and psychological training or competition. Early stages of overtraining can be from too much exertion and no enough breaks. This is called the orthosympathetic form. In the advanced stages your orthosympathetic form is exhausted, which allows the parasympathetic system to become dominant. The orthosympathetic overtrainee is in a permanent fight or flight mode, which should be incidental challenges where the adrenal gland will pump out hormones like adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol while raising the human growth hormone and stimulating the thyroid hormone. These glands are the spinters of the group of glands; they are not designed to cope with the longevity of a marathon. The parasympathetic overtrainee will mimic some of the symptoms of Addison’s disease. Some times it is referred to as Addisonoid overtraining. The adrenal glands are exhausted and they fail to regulate hormonal concentrations correctly, which causes a serious problem. If routine blood work were to be performed on the overtrainee, it is likely to show progressive anemia with low hemoglobin and low hematocrit. The overtrainee will complain of underperformance while other common symptoms are susceptibility to common infections and injuries, persistent high level of fatigue, heavy muscles and depression. The athlete’s reaction to underperformance is to train more rather than rest. Many times symptoms will be ignored until performance is affected on a regular basis. Additional symptoms of overtraining is having trouble going to sleep or waking up in the middle of the night or waking up un-refreshed. Other symptoms can include the loss of appetite, loss of weight, loss of their competitive drive, increased emotional instability such as anxiety, depression and mental exhaustion, a poor attitude to training and musculoskeletal soreness. There is a simple do-it-yourself method of monitoring. You can do this by checking your morning heart rate. Take your pulse immediately after you wake up while you are still in bed. If your pulse is elevated by more than 8 beats per minute above its average, you are falling into overtraining. You can also check your morning body weight; your average weight for the week should not vary more than 2lbs. If it drops more than 3lbs. on any given day, you are falling into overtraining. To correct your condition, the first thing you need to do is to lower your stress load and increase your down time. In severe cases, the athlete should stop training for 7-14 days. Increase the amount of sleep to about 9 hours of solid sleep a night and increase your antioxidant intake to 200%. You will also need to combine a whole food diet and Aloeride Aloe Vera and probiotics. Many athletes have trained for 3 or 4 times per week without giving their bodies the fuel it requires to continue with that amount of training. Improving the immune system of the athletes help reduce the number and the length of the infection they may receive. Aloeride Aloe Vera along with probiotics will do just that. Anyone suffering from an imbalance between physical and psychological stress should change their balance and use Aloeride Aloe Vera, probiotics and highly absorbable whole food nutrition to recover.

Aloe Vera and the Immune System Aloe Vera helps your Immune System

Aloeride Aloe Vera Helps Your Immune System

Aloeride Aloe Vera with the compounds of Aloe Barbadensis Miller works to improve the functioning of the immune system. When looking at the immune system, you will see it is almost as complex as your nervous system. When you think about the trillions of cells, which make up our bodies and how they work to protect us using a method of communication to all the different cell types, which makes up just our immune system. These cells will then activate or deactivate chemical processes, which is all quite confusing to most lay persons. The immune system’s basic job is to discriminate between self and non-self entities, which is to say things that belong and those that don’t belong. Examples of some the things, which do not belong are sugar protein covering a virus, or the cell wall of a bacterium. When the immune system is working correctly, it will react promptly to invading things, which do not belong in several different ways in order to get rid of the foreign body. There are times during the course of our life when our immune system will stop working, as it should. When this happens the immune system will be unable to tell the difference between the things, which belong and those, which don’t and will begin to eject the things, which do belong and are necessary to the body. This group of diseases is known as the autoimmune disease. Examples of this type of disease are rheumatoid arthritis, lupus erythematosis, and ulcerative colitis just to name a few. When a substance has been identified as an immune booster, we have found something, which is very valuable because it helps the immune system to react as it should and regulates the cellular and humoral immune functions. The immune system recognizes, identifies and remembers the things it comes across. The humoral refers to material, which is dissolved in plasma, serum, extracellular fluid spaces, which includes what the immune system cells produce as a reaction to certain signals made by invaders and then released into the serum, plasma or the fluid surrounding cells of tissues and organs as a way to protect them. These substances are a form of signals, which create other effects, or they can become protein molecules, which are also known as antibodies, which attach themselves only to certain targets the ones they were created for. Once they have attached themselves the antibody attracts other cells of the immune system. The other come and the target is destroyed, which then releases another molecules to signal other cells to come clean-up the mess. All the cells, which respond to signal and have certain tasks to perform such as identify, recognize, remember, signal, destroy, and clean up are the all part of the cellular community of the immune system and its function. Without the work of these cells we would be sick a lot more often than we are. Aloeride Aloe Vera is a substance, which gives our immune system the boost it needs to ensure it stays in good working order.

Go Green - Go Aloe Vera

Go Green - Go Aloeride Aloe Vera!

The world’s consciousness about preservation, recycling, and investment in our environmental future has exploded over the last few years. And nowhere in the world is this more evident than among celebrities in Hollywood. Many celebrities and others in the entertainment industry are leading the way by adopting a total Green-friendly lifestyle. It has suddenly become very chic to GO GREEN in absolutely everything! In L.A. there are Green spas, Green furniture, Green stores, Green gifts, Green kiddie parties, and even an eco-friendly Green limo service for celebs. Electric and hybrid cars have literally taken over the freeways of Southern California—replacing the giant SUV’s and trucks of the very recent past. And if you still insist on driving into the parking lot of a Whole Foods supermarket in a gas guzzling SUV, you better be prepared to receive cold hard stares or even a full blown lecture from a complete stranger (or a celebrity,) on the errors of your ways! And for heaven’s sake don’t forget your recyclable clothe tote when you go shopping, because plastic bags are simply not available! So, in L.A. if you don’t participate in Green then as Heidi Klum says, “You’re (definitely) Out!” But, this new found consciousness really does go far deeper. It is an appreciation of just how delicate our environment is, how it needs to be respected, cared for and nurtured. And as we move more fully into understanding our responsibility to the planet, we are also becoming even more acutely aware of the urgency to address the damage sustained to our own internal environment. Celebs and others have been flocking en masse to spas (especially Green ones) in a quest to eliminate the toxins and repair cells from stress and pollution. But there is an honest recognition that external and topical treatments and even eating totally organic, are still limiting in what they can achieve.

Aloe Vera & Asthma Aloe Vera helps Asthma

Aloe Vera & Asthma

Asthma affects one in four people on average and is present in all age groups. Asthma symptoms include wheezing, an overproduction of mucus and excessive coughing. The symptoms are the result of muscular over activity causing inflammation and mucus production. It can be triggered by allergies, emotions or stress. Most people have warning signs that an attack is coming on and can treat it with prescription medications such as Albuterol. This disease is frightening and can force people to change how they live to avoid attacks. Some people have to avoid stress, dust or allergens, which is virtually impossible to achieve 100% of the time. Most asthmatics get attacks regularly regardless of how many prescription medications they take and how much they avoid triggers. Though asthma is not curable, the good news is that some children grow out of it. But those that don’t are usually on the hunt for anything that can help. What if there was a way to naturally reduce the chances you will suffer from an asthma attack? One study in 2005 found that 57% of the asthmatics studied found more relief from a combination of conventional and natural treatments, than prescription medicines alone. One of the natural treatments being used was aloe vera. This is not surprising because there are published studies on the benefits of aloe vera for asthma from as far back as 1951 to more recently in the mid 1980’s. Aloe vera contains natural steroids and other compounds that inhibit or reduce inflammation. Interestingly, the studies done in Japan in the 1980’s showed that some compounds in aloe cause in increase in the removal of particles that may be asthma triggers. This is one explanation for how aloe helps asthmatics. Aloe vera should not be used to treat an ongoing asthma attack though because it has only been shown to be effective when used as a preventative measure. So even if you use aloe and it helps, still keep your inhaler nearby for attacks. One issue that many people have with aloe vera products is the natural laxative effect. This may be a plus for some but for many people it’s a huge drawback. Fortunately, one brand of aloe pills, Aloeride® aloe vera capsules, has removed the issue completely. Their aloe vera pills do not contain the portion of the plant responsible for the laxative effect. Plus, Aloeride® Aloe Vera is pharmaceutical quality and is manufactured to be as pure as possible. Aloeride® Aloe Vera is privately prescribed by doctors and therapists but also can be purchased securely via the internet, click here to visit References: Clement YN, Williams AF, Aranda D, Chase R, Watson N, Mohammed R, Stubbs O, Williamson D.
