  • So, I wonder if this means that fresher aloe, straight from a leaf, is better than shelf-stable aloe in a jar/tube for helping people. We need a randomized study of THAT next!

  • I have great success in the treatment of my radiation sunburn with Aloe juice but from the plant not from extract bought from the store. The store bought extract was not effective. I would cut the leaf off of the plant and split it in half and tape the slimy side to my burn, by morning the burn was well into being 100% healed.

  • Carrington Labs in Texas has done the legwork regarding when and why aloe gel is effective. They found an enzyme in the plant, when exposed to O2 begins to rearrange the molecules in the gel. Apparently, the propriotary ingredient is mannose, and with the enzyme disabled, the results are stunning.

  • Sometimes synergistic effects are your friend.

    Abstract
    BACKGROUND:

    The recent advances in the analysis of tumor immunobiology suggest the possibility of biologically manipulating the efficacy and toxicity of cancer chemotherapy by endogenous or exogenous immunomodulating substances. Aloe is one of the of the most important plants exhibiting anticancer activity and its antineoplastic property is due to at least three different mechanisms, based on antiproliferative, immunostimulatory and antioxidant effects. The antiproliferative action is determined by anthracenic and antraquinonic molecules, while the immunostimulating activity is mainly due to acemannan.
    PATIENTS AND METHODS:

    A study was planned to include 240 patients with metastatic solid tumor who were randomized to receive chemotherapy with or without Aloe. According to tumor histotype and clinical status, lung cancer patients were treated with cisplatin and etoposide or weekly vinorelbine, colorectal cancer patients received oxaliplatin plus 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), gastric cancer patients were treated with weekly 5-FU and pancreatic cancer patients received weekly gemcitabine. Aloe was given orally at 10 ml thrice/daily.
    RESULTS:

    The percentage of both objective tumor regressions and disease control was significantly higher in patients concomitantly treated with Aloe than with chemotherapy alone, as well as the percent of 3-year survival patients.
    CONCLUSION:

    This study seems to suggest that Aloe may be successfully associated with chemotherapy to increase its efficacy in terms of both tumor regression rate and survival time.

  • For those who have not been introduced to the healing properties of Manapol, Ambrotose, Verapol, Acemannan, (all aloe based supplements) you should check them out on Amazon or wherever you choose in order to see what potential lies therein. I checked Amazon for Ambrotose and thought this person's potential placebo effect was rather impressive. Link removed to avoid any conflict or suspicion of monetary motivation.

    Hi, I received this product a few days ago and already I am experiencing good results;

    I’ve had painful varicose veins for about 10 years now and an ankle I tore the ligaments in when I was 19 (now 63) that has surfaced and hurts most days like H….. as I am on my feet and walk a lot with my job.

    To start with I followed the directions – good place to start right!?” But all bodies are different and I had too much energy (not at all like caffeine) and had a hard time closing down in the evening . So, I started taking 1 tab two times a day.

    1. My energy is up and stable.
    2. My leg pains are 60 percent less
    3. I can stand longer without pain
    4. I think this can/ will only improve as I’ve been on the product about a week!
    5. I’ll most likely order again as being virtually free from pain gives me my life back!

  • This just enforces what we already know that extracts do not necessarily have the same effect as the whole plant. So far this video does not demonstrate that the whole leaf applied to the skin is ineffective.

  • I sure don't know about radiation, but I have tested fresh aloe vera on a number of occasions for other issues and there is no doubt it can be amazing. After scalding my arm with boiling water, I slathered a few fresh cut blades of aloe on it liberally, then wrapped the moist leaves against my skin for a few hours. It reduced the pain significantly, but the most amazing thing was the following day… the total lack of blistering and pain to the areas I had taped the aloe to. Just applying it definitely helped because the areas I missed blistered, but the covered sections were just slightly pink, painless and unblistered, and the clean outline of where the leaves were was striking! Keeping the moist aloe in contact with the damaged skin is apparently key to optimum benefit.
    After a recent attack of fire ants while out gardening, I put it to the test again. Anyone familiar with them knows that not only do they swarm on you in great numbers, but each individual sting is painful and nasty, and you are left with very visible and uncomfortable pus filled bites that take weeks to resolve and tend to scar. I got stung on both feet and ankles and decided to do an n-1 aloe trial for future encounters. Fire ant venom is an alkaloid, so I doused both feet with vinegar and scrubbed well with a scrubbie pad, then applied and taped the aloe leaves to one foot, and used a commercial hydrocortisone cream on the other. Amazing! The following day the foot with the cream looked and felt as expected, but the aloe'd foot was pain, itch, and nearly bite free. The only bites that were visible were on the areas the leaves didn't cover. A month later, one foot still bears the obvious marks that were totally avoided on the other. This may all be anecdotal for others, but it was huge for me since fire ants are ubiquitous here in the south. Luckily, aloe also grows here nicely, and now I have a slew of it planted! I know we all react differently but it is sure worth trying for yourself. One caveat though, I have never found a commercial aloe extract product to be of any benefit at all compared to fresh leaves poulticed on the problem area… like night and day.
