For thousands of years, the Aloe Vera plant has been used to treat various health conditions. It is a succulent plant species that grows abundantly in tropical climates. Inside the leaves, you find a clear gooey gel made from the flesh of the leaves which has been contained in creams, gels and ointments. These products are typically applied to treat various skin conditions. Aloe is also sold in capsule, powder or liquid form to take internally to promote health and well-being.
But what is it that makes Aloe Vera a potent medicinal plant?
The main active ingredient in the Aloe Vera plant is Acemannan which is part of the mannose molecule, the family of healthy natural sugars (or glycans) that coats the cells inside our bodies that makes cell to cell communication better. The benefits of Acemannan are awe-inspiring, and you don’t want to miss out on them. It strengthens and supports the immune system, lowers the tendency to develop allergies, stimulates the immune system, is antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory. It acts as a prebiotic, which is food for the good bacteria in our gut. It is especially Acemannan which appears to enforce the production of butyrate, which is a short-chain fatty acid and is a postbiotic. In a recent podcast dr. Elizabeth Boham talks about butyrate when there is more present the rate of colon cancer is lower. Butyrate has a tremendous anti-inflammatory impact on the colon.

Acemannan is also fantastic for bladder health. It reduces bladder pain, urinary frequency and urgency and urethral burning that are part of many bladder disorders, especially Bladder Pain Syndrome.
Besides Acemannan, Aloe Vera contains more good sugars (mannan polysaccharides) as well as enzymes, vitamins and minerals. The interplay of all these ingredients makes Aloe Vera an all-rounder which can enhance our health.
Where to find quality Acemannan?
In the rich volcanic soils of Costa Rica, Aloe plants are bred specifically for a higher Acemannan content. An enzyme-free processing method is used to get concentrated Acemannan in a product called Manapol, the purest form of Acemannan. Acemannan can be lost with improper gel processing, and that is why Natural Aloe Costa Rica employs cutting edge farming techniques that produce aloe vera plants which help yield a higher volume of aloe gel containing Acemannan and processes the gel in such a way to protect the rich glyconutrient Acemannans in a way that is essential for lasting benefits.
Aloe products claiming to contain acemannan without a molecular weight of 1-2 million Daltons cannot be, by definition, Acemannan. Mannatech’s true Acemannan, trademarked as Manapol, has more than 1 million Daltons of Acemannan in molecular weight consistently. There simply is no mannan extracted from aloe vera inner leaf gel that can produce even a fraction of the results of Manapol. Furthermore, Mannatech has done original scientific studies on human beings with their Ambrotose products for more than 20 years.
