Benefits of Aloe Vera

The succulent leaf of the Aloe Vera plant is one of nature’s most wonderful gifts. Recognized throughout history for a multitude of uses, the plant’s fullest capacities are only just now being widely developed for today’s health-conscious consumer.

Desert Harvest Super-Strength Aloe Vera has been shown in clinical trials to effectively reduce bladder pain, urinary frequency, urgency and urethral burning that are a part of many bladder disorders, but especially Interstitial Cystitis / Bladder Pain Syndrome (IC/BPS) and non-bacterial prostatitis.

Aloe Vera contains acemannan, which is a polysaccharide chain of mannose molecules. Preliminary clinical trials in Europe show that mannose may also help treat or prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs). Research suggests mannose stops certain bacteria from sticking to the bladder walls. Scientists believe that the bacteria stick to the sugar instead. This helps the bacteria leave the body through urine. Fewer bacteria in the bladder lowers the risk of urinary tract infection.
