Aloe leaf extract has been used for thousands of years to promote the health of epithelial tissue, including the bowel lining. Aloe is one of a class of compounds called anthraquinone glycosides, molecules which, when ingested and activated through bacterial metabolism in the gut, promote water retention in the stool and stimulate peristalsis in the large intestines. By stimulating active chloride secretion, aloe increases the water and electrolyte content in the stool and eases its passage without the artificial additives and associated cramping common to other therapies.
Super Aloe is intended for the relief of occasional constipation. Aloe powder, the solid residue obtained by evaporating liquid aloe vera, has been shown in the research to affect regularity due to its influence on colon peristalsis, which it triggers to contract, resulting in accelerated intestinal passage. This formulation Super Aloe is available as 250 and 450 mg capsules, two potencies to provide tailored natural support for elimination.
1 capsule at bedtime (allow 24 hours before redosing) or as recommended by your health care professional.
Despite the lack of published studies, aloe preparations have been in the United States Pharmacopoeia for over 100 years. Anecdotal evidence suggests aloe vera supports normal inflammatory response in the gastrointestinal tract. A randomized, double-blind trial found
aloe increased bowel transit time, improved protein digestion and absorption, increased stool bulk and promoted balanced stool bacteria in those with bowel irritability.
