Scientific Studies Which Support Ultimate Aloe® Juice Travel Concentrate

Whole Leaf Aloe vera Linne Gel
Aloe vera contains is rich in polysaccharides, glycoproteins, urea nitrogen, creatine, potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, iron, choline, sodium, alkaline phosphatases, SGO transaminase, SGP transaminase, lactic dehydrogenase, amylase, lipase, mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids, amino acids, saponins, sterols and biogenic stimulators.

Linne gel is named after the scientist Carl von Linne (Carl Linnaeus), who is given credit for categorizing plants and animals. Linnaeus deemed Aloe to be the genus and vera the species. The actual species of aloe in our product is Aloe barbadensis Miller. Miller is the person who described and categorized the plant we know as Aloe vera.

Chemical analysis shows that Aloe vera contains vitamins, minerals, triglycerides, carbohydrates, amino acids, enzymes and water. The vitamins found in Aloe include B1, B2, B3 and B12, choline, folic acid, vitamin C and beta-carotene (a precursor to Vitamin A), which are all vital to optimal health and the formation of certain key enzymes.

Aloe has been shown to contain many beneficial minerals nutrients needed for good nutrition. Minerals found in Aloe include calcium, magnesium, potassium, chloride, iron, zinc, manganese, copper, chromium, sulfur, aluminum, strontium, boron, silicon, lithium, phosphorus, nickel and sodium. These nutrients minerals are vital in the growth process and essential promote the normal for the function of all body systems.

Aloe vera also contains necessary triglycerides including fats, oil and waxes. They carry the fat-soluble vitamins, supply the fatty acids essential for growth and general health of all body tissue and help supply energy. Aloe vera contains twenty of the twenty-two amino acids needed for good nutrition; nine of these are essential and must be supplied from an outside source because the body cannot manufacture its own. Aloe has been shown to contain all of the essential nine amino acids. The complete list of amino acids known to exist in Aloe includes lysine, histidine, arginine, aspartic acid, asparagine, threonine, serine, glutamine, hydroxyproline, proline, glycine, alanine, cystine, valine, methionine, isoleucine, leucine, tyrosine, glutamic acid and phenylalanine.

It appears that the polysaccharides, phytochemicals and flavonoids contained in aAloe vera may play an important role in enhancing the absorption of some vitamins. Studies have shown increased plasma levels of vitamin C, E and B12 after supplementation of whole leaf aloe and a combination of the above vitamins. The absorption of vitamins appears to be slower and plasma levels remained higher, longer. The mechanism of action is unknown, but it may be due to the polysaccharides slowing the absorption process or due to the protection that the phytochemicals/flavonoids provide for the vitamins.

Aloe vera also contains numerous enzymes, some of which support digestive health. The enzymes present in Aloe include alkaline phosphatases, SGO transaminase, SGP transaminase, lactic dehydrogenase, amylase, lipase, oxidase, peroxidase, catalase, bradykinase, gamma transaminase, carboxypeptidase and cellulase.

Water is the major component of Aloe vera gel (the clear inner part of the leaf). When the fiber or pulp is removed from the gel, what remains is approximately 99 percent water. Water is the universal solvent and is responsible for the transfer of nutrients throughout the body.
