Aloe Vera Research

Aloe Vera has been studied extensively for it's amazing healing properties for intestinal help, skin remedies and it's anti-inflammatory effects. Here are just a few recent studies for aloe vera. For more research information visit .

Anti-inflammatory effects of Aloe vera on leukocyte-endothelium interaction in the gastric microcirculation of Helicobacter pylori-infected rats.

Department of Physiology, Faculty of Medicine, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok 10330, Thailand.

This research was aimed to investigate anti-inflammatory effects of Aloe vera on leukocyte-endothelium in the gastric microcirculation of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori)-infected rats. Thirty-six male Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into 3 groups: control, H. pylori-infected, and A. vera-treated group (200 mg/kg b.w., twice daily). H. pylori-inoculation was induced in the rats by the administration of H. pylori solution. Intravital fluorescence videomicroscopy was used to examine leukocyte adhesion in post capillary venules on the posterior surface of stomach area on different periods after administration of A. vera. Serum tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) level was measured in blood collected at the end of experiment by using ELISA technique. The results showed that in H. pylori-infected group on day 8, the leukocyte adhesion was 13.40+/-1.00 cells/100 microm vessel length and the TNF-alpha was 76.76+/-23.18 pg/ml, which increased significantly (p < 0.05), compared with the control group (leukocyte adhesion(control) = 2.54+/-0.6 cells/100 microm vessel length and TNF-alpha(control) = 9.92+/-2.62 pg/ml). Treatment with A. vera reduced the leukocyte adhesion (5.5+/-0.5 cells/100 microm vessel length), and TNF-alpha (26.31+/-6.38 pg/ml) significantly (p < 0.05). In conclusion, H. pylori enhanced leukocyte-endothelium interaction in the posterior stomach area markedly. This enhancement in leukocyte-endothelium interaction could be improved by the treatment of A. vera, associated with reduction in TNF-alpha level.

The effect of Aloe vera A. Berger (Liliaceae) on gastric acid secretion and acute gastric mucosal injury in rats.

Department of Human Physiology, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Nigeria.

The effect of varying doses of ethanol extract of Aloe vera (Liliaceae) on acute gastric mucosal lesions induced by 0.6 M HCl and acid output was studied in the pylorus ligated and lumen perfuse rats, respectively. Acid secretion was determined by titration of the collected gastric juice to pH 7.0. Intraperitoneal injection of Aloe vera, dose dependently inhibited gastric acid secretion. The plant was more active as a gastroprotective agent at lower concentration against mucosal injury induced by 0.6 M HCl. In conclusion, Aloe vera is endowed with gastric acid anti-secretory activity and could protect the gastric mucosa at low concentrations against injurious agents.

Antidiabetic effects of dietary administration of Aloe arborescens Miller components on multiple low-dose streptozotocin-induced diabetes in mice: investigation on hypoglycemic action and systemic absorption dynamics of aloe components.

Fujita Memorial Nanakuri Institute, Fujita Health University, 1865 Isshiki-cho, Hisai, Mie 514-1296, Japan.

We carried out three experimental trials to determine antidiabetic effects of Aloe arborescens Miller components. Firstly, ICR mice which received frequent injections of streptozotocin (Sz) in small doses (low-dose Sz-induced diabetes mice) were fed ad libitum with basal diets supplemented with components of Aloe arborescens Miller var. natalensis Berger (Kidachi aloe) and Aloe vera Linne from 31 days before to 73 days after the Sz injections. Variation in blood glucose levels, incidence rates of insulitis and blood insulin levels were examined during the trial. As a result, groups receiving diets supplemented at the rate of 2% with whole leaf of Kidachi aloe and 10 KDa fraction powder (a fraction with less than 10 KDa molecular weight derived from Kidachi aloe leaf skin juice by ultra filtration) significantly suppressed the elevation of blood sugar as compared to a control group receiving basal diet. In contrast, there was no significant effect with Aloe vera leaf pulp powder. Insulitis emerged at the rate of 87% in the basal diet group. On the contrary, the whole aloe leaf and 10 KDa fraction groups significantly decreased the incidence of insulitis and incidence rates of whole aloe leaf and 10 KDa fraction powder were 51 and 38%, respectively. While insulin levels in the basal diet group averaged at 0.05 ng, more than four times the insulin level was observed in the 10 KDa group relative to the basal diet group. Secondary, the inhibitory effects of test materials on intestinal glucose absorption were observed using the jejunum of rats. A strong inhibitory action on intestinal glucose absorption was observed in the 10 KDa fraction powder group. Thirdly, phenol compounds derived from aloe in the blood serum and organs were quantitatively measured by a HPLC following forced administration of aloe components to rats to determine absorption kinetics of aloe components inside the body. The primary component of aloe phenol compounds is the same component of the 10 KDa fraction powder and it was found in the pancreas and liver in addition to in the blood serum. The above results indicate that fore and aft when Sz injections could cause selective toxicity to B cells of islets, the dietary administration of 10 KDa fraction powder to mice would lead to the persistence of aloe phenol compound having an antioxidant activity in the pancreas and blood, which could protect islets of Langerhans from the destruction caused by methyl radical derived from Sz. The results also suggested the possibility of the 10 KD a fraction powder to alleviate the burden of insulin secretion as it has an inhibitory action on glucose absorption in the jejunum of rats.

All natural fruit, herbs and remedies will affect people differently because our body chemistry's are different. So, start slow and be patient. If you aren't having an adverse reaction to any particular remedy, make sure you try it for 60-90 days to give it a fair trial. Frequently some results can be noticed within weeks, but many take a little longer.
