Aloe Vera Facts

I believe you’ll find one of the most surprising aloe vera facts to be that most modern packaged products don’t include the most important medicinal component of the plant.

Am I saying that most products on the market won’t actually perform the way we’ve all heard aloe did for ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Hindus, Native Americans and even Alexander the Great?

Yes, that’s the unfortunate fact. However, there’s a solution to this challenging situation and I’ll tell you more about it below.

First, though, allow me to introduce more interesting facts about aloe:

About the Plant

It’s a succulent plant, which was initially known to grow in places of high temperature and increased drought possibilities. This is because the leaves and roots of the aloe vera plant can store plenty of water.

However, this isn’t the case anymore. Aloe vera can be cultivated anywhere any place on the globe – outdoor in a field or even indoor.

250 species make up the aloe vera plant. Most of these species have an African nativity. The most common species is the Aloe Barbadensis.

Many species grow in massive colonies of low growing plants – up to 2-3 feet high. It’s a semi tropical plant capable of holding plenty of water.

In fact, the plant is 95 percent water. The real value resides underneath the cuticle, or outer skin. The underneath tissues mainly consist of thick gel-like sap. This gel is what defines the medicinal value of aloe vera.

Aesthetic Aloe Vera Facts

Many aloe vera skin care products exist today. Aloe is known for supporting the body in the process of regenerating the skin and giving it a youthful appearance.

Ancient Egyptian queens and women in India historically used the plant to help preserve their beauty.

Today, you can use it for the same purpose. Like I warned above, though, not all aloe vera products are the same.

Some contain harmful pesticides and new research developments revealed their health dangers and have made these types of applications obsolete. But that hasn’t stopped them from being sold!

New on the market are products that contain Glycan-based properties. These have the ability to support the body’s natural ability to strengthen and nourish your skin by its process for re-energizing your matrix (firm, cushiony material under your top layer of skin).

Wellness Facts

The wellness benefits of aloe vera are extensive. Just to mention a few:

  • Supports the digestive system
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Regulates cardiovascular functions
  • Boosts the endocrine system

This list can become quite exhaustive. As you can see, however, improving your immune, endocrine, digestive and cardiovascular systems will have tremendous power in supporting your body as its natural wellness components are revitalized.


Let me return to one of the most vital aloe vera facts I made mention of above: modern products are devoid of aloe’s most important and wellness supporting components.

This is a complex sugar molecule, or phytochemical, called Mannose.

Dr. Bill McAnalley is the man who, when doing research on packaged aloe products in the 1980’s, discovered that processed aloe products are ineffective.

Why? Dr. McAnalley found that a naturally occurring enzyme destroys Mannose 48 hours after aloe vera is harvested. This means that processed products go to market missing the one key ingredient for all of aloe’s known wellness promoting qualities.

Interesting fact, wouldn’t you agree? And dangerous to be unaware of when expecting these products to help you and your family…

Fortunately, for you and I there’s a solution. Dr. McAnalley came up with a process that deactivates the enzyme that destroys Mannose. I have access to the one company who makes the products with exclusive rights to use his process.
