Muscinous polysaccharides have various therapeutic properties including antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory activity.
This properties help for people that suffer from digestive dysfunction and maldigestion including: Peptic ulcer disease, Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
Dr. John C.Pitmann M.D. on Digestion and the Immune System has written extensively about Aloe mucilaginous polysaccharides and its affect on the immune system via digestion.
Many researchers now agree with his findings. He noticed that people who suffer from immunodepressive conditions have a high occurrence of digestive dysfunction and maldigestion.
Dr. Pitmann found that poor digestion can lead to two primary problems:
1. Food is not broken down into the elemental building blocks that body can use to rebuild itself and generate energy for metabolism. Toxins are not removed from cells, sufficient nutrients are not moved into cells, and not enough energy produced for cells functioning.
This affects all cells including the immune system cells such as white blood cells, which then lack the fuel and the oxygen to carry out their normal function. The result of all this is the lower immunity.
2. The second problem is that maldigestion results in food remnants in the gut causing several pathological reactions. Undigested protein can then leak across into the lymph system and then into the general circulation, with the immune system reacting to contain the foreign invaders.
The immune system becomes overtaxed and runs down. Oxygen and fuel get used up; the immune cells wear out faster and do not reproduce in sufficient numbers. Undigested food remnants can also become a reproduction ground for candida (a fungus) and several types of parasites.
Candidiasis (a fungous infection) produces toxins that cause increased digestion dysfunction, food allergies, fatigue and a host of other problems.
This causes the immune system to become even more depressed.
The inflammation in the intestines causes further damage by causing reactions that produce oxidative free radicals as waste by-products.
The leaky gut syndrome increases with more food particles going into the blood.
Research has shown that Aloe Mucilaginous Polysaccharides have a remarkable ability to normalize all of these damaging processes, which has the effect of enhancing the immune system function through improved digestion.
Aloe mucilaginous polysaccharides act as a potent anti-inflammatory agent, stopping the damage and leakage of the intestinal wall, thereby taking the stress off the immune system.
Aloe Mucilaginous Polysaccharides have direct ant-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal/yeast and anti-parasite effects. Chronic yeast growth can be controlled so the normal, healthy flora can then thrive more easily. Furthermore, the macrophages, monocytes, antibodies and T-cells are stimulated.
Phagocytosis (when large white blood cells engulf particles) is dramatically increased to ingest foreign proteins, such as the HIV virus. Aloe mucilaginous polysaccharide increases the number and intensity of all immune cells in the body.
The key to integrating healthy digestion with a healthy immune system is the oral ingestion of Aloe mucilaginous polysaccharides.
Dr. John C. Pitmann has stated: “The key to integrating healthy digestion with a healthy immune system is the oral ingestion of stabilized Aloe polysaccharides. …

Taken for several weeks Aloe Vera Gel or Juice helps gradually brake down, loosen and assist in natural diffusion of these residues.
Detoxification also takes place and brings in results of ability to enjoy wider range of food, relief from pain, reducing usage of prescribed antispasmodic drugs and also greater filling of well-being and an improvement in the quality of life.
