Aloe Products for Animals and Humans

image086I supply all the below mentioned products and more. And remember they are suitable for animal and human consumption.

Most of our products are Aloe Vera based. Aloe Vera has been used throughout the centuries, and has been quoted in many ancient books and also in the bible. It has been referred to as the Miracle Plant, and also as the Healing plant due to its extraordinary ability to somehow balance the imbalances in the body’s system which then allows the body to then begin the process of healing itself.

Aloe gel is an adaptogen, which means that it adapts to what the body needs in order to restore balance. It has stopped cravings in some users, and has even been reported in a few cases to assist in breaking the smoking habit.

Aloe Vera when drunk in its natural state is a pre-biotic. It helps cleanse the gut so that the body can then begin to absorb the nutrients from the Aloe and from other foodstuffs.

Aloe Vera also helps to create a more Alkaline pH in the body. An acidic pH can occur from, an acid forming diet, emotional stress, toxic overload, and/or immune reactions or any process that deprives the cells of oxygen and other nutrients. The body will try to compensate for the acidic pH by using up alkaline minerals in the body. If the diet does not contain enough minerals to compensate, a build up of acids in the cells will occur, which can ultimately affect the health of an individual, and cause all kinds of other illnesses and disease, such as cardiovascular weakness, weight gain/loss, bladder and kidney concerns, and immune deficiency challenges, to name but a few.

Our Aloe products are made from Aloe Barbadensis Miller. Of all the species of Aloe plants available, this one is the most nutritious, and also has the best healing properties. The plant originated in North Africa, and is now grown in the Arizona desert, Mexico and the Dominican Republic. lt has a yellow flower and is different to the aloe grown in South Africa, which has an orange flower and is called Aloe Ferox.

Our Forever Aloe is also processed differently to the South African Aloe. In South Africa, the local Aloe is usually processed by crushing the entire leaf including the outer rind (which is very bitter, and has very strong laxative properties) into a pulp. The mixture then needs to be filtered through carbon filters in order to get rid of the laxative effect. We believe that in so doing, some of the nutrients could be lost. Our process is extremely labour intensive, as each leaf goes through a manual filleting process where the rind is sliced off the inner leaf, and only the inner gel is used for our products.

Aloe Drinking Gels – for animals and humans

All our drinking gels carry the lnternational Aloe Science Council’s seal of approval which is for consistency and purity and to our knowledge none of South African produced products carry it.

Like any fresh produce, Aloe Vera deteriorates once exposed to the air. This is known as oxidation. If you slice an apple and leave it open to the air, the fruit quickly discolours and loses its nutritional benefits, so too with Aloe Vera.

Three Doctors spent over 20 years developing a stabilization process (which they patented) in order to preserve the gel with natural preservatives from berries, and prevent it from losing any of its potency and effectiveness. This patent gives our Aloe gel a shelf life of 5 years. Once opened, it needs to be kept in the refrigerator and will be fine to drink for 3 months. Someone in a rural area without refrigeration facilities should store the gel in a cool dark place. And possibly have it standing on a wet stone or brick to keep it cool.

Our Aloe drinks are called Aloe “gel” because they have a minimum of 85% pure Aloe Vera in the bottle. If you analyze the contents of the bottle, you will discover it has 200 active compounds, 75 nutrients, 20 minerals, 18 amino acids (this is a broken down form of protein), as well as 12 vitamins (including B 12).

Aloe Vera Gel (Yellow Bottle)

image087The Forever Aloe Gel has 98% pure Aloe Vera in the bottle with the other 2% being natural berries used to preserve it.

The Gel helps the body to detoxify, and helps to remove the build-up of toxins on the lining of the intestine walls. Once the toxins have been removed, the body absorbs the goodness of the aloe and builds up the immune system. Because it actually cleanses the digestive tract that leads to a better absorption of nutrients, and can often alleviate indigestion, constipation, heartburn, and hiatus hernia and stomach ulcers. It is anti-mycotical and combats candida. Its anti-inflammatory qualities can reduce inflammation in cases of irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, diverticulitis and Crohn’s disease. By restoring the balance of the immune system, Forever Aloe Vera Gel reduces fatigue, and its natural anti-inflammatory effect improves the quality of life of many sufferers from rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and MS. In addition, the Aloe Gel boosts the respiratory system and assists with healing inflammation of the respiratory tract. It can also bring relief to asthma and allergy sufferers. (Especially the Berry Nectar)

Aloe Vera Gel has also been reported to be beneficial in cases of sinusitis, and its pain-killing qualities can alleviate general aches and pains as well as sciatica. Even snoring has been reduced in some individuals! Its anti-bacterial action soothes and improves skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, acne and acne rosacea. Regular consumption of the Gel improves the condition of hair and nails, elevates energy levels and benefits sleeping patterns.

Forever Aloe Vera Gel assists with the healing processes of a wide spectrum of ailments, and speeds up the rate of recovery from illness and infections, wounds and surgical interventions (sometimes by as much as 30%!). It has also been reported to help with PMS and menopause. Many clients report improvement in blood pressure, stress levels and diabetes.

The Gel is a natural product and should be taken for at least 6-12 weeks for proper results to start emerging, but consider the advantage of the absence of side effects, as in the faster acting but synthesized pharmaceutical products.

Aloe Berry Nectar (Red cap)

Note: Aloe Berry Nectar is not recommended for people on Warfarin or other anti-coagulants because of the cranberry content.

It is pure aloe gel as in the yellow bottle above and has all the properties of Aloe Vera Gel. In addition, it contains added apple juice and cranberries, known for their reputation as a cleanser of the urinary tract; therefore Aloe Berry Nectar assists with kidney function and urinary tract problems such as cystitis and water retention. It is high in anti-oxidants and vitamins A and C. Added potassium and pectin cleanses the digestive system. Berry Nectar builds up the immune system and has a beneficial effect on allergies and is also recommended for those battling with chest infections and asthma.

Aloe Berry Nectar should be taken for at least 6 – 12 weeks for the positive results to start manifesting.

The Nectar can be given to babies once they are on solids. A half a teaspoonful in the morning is a recommended starting dosage. This may be increased to a teaspoonful, and then by adding another teaspoonful in the evenings, from the second or third week of treatment. One-year-olds may take up to 15 ml per day and 25 ml per day is recommended from two years onwards.

Aloe Vera Bits ‘n Peaches (Orange cap)

This Aloe drink has all the properties of the yellow bottle. In addition, it contains larger bits of aloe pieces, so is also excellent for the digestive system and seems to help some people suffering from constipation (although many clients prefer the plain Aloe gel). The addition of peach juice provides carotenoids – valuable anti-oxidants and a source of vitamin A, which is beneficial for eye-health. It is a great tasting drink and is popular with children due to the sweetness. Some of our clients even serve it as a sauce over ice cream!

Forever Freedom (Blue cap)

image089Note: This product contains some shellfish extracts and should not be taken by Clients who are allergic to shellfish.

This drinking gel has all the properties of Aloe Vera Gel plus added natural glucosamine sulphate, chondroitin sulphate and MSN. These supplements are known to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, help rebuild cartilage and restore joint function and mobility. MSM is a primary source of bio-available sulphur, which the body needs to maintain healthy connective tissue and joint function. As the body ages, it is less able to produce these natural substances of healthy cartilage which can then lead to ‘wear and tear’ on the joints. Forever Freedom can be helpful to sufferers from osteo-arthritis, people with joint and cartilage problems as well as people who are active in various sporting activities.

image092Freedom is well received by people going in for knee and hip replacements, or other orthopaedic operations. Recommend that they start to drink it a week or two before the op and for a couple of months afterwards as the bones are healing.

Freedom Gel is extensively used on horses, particularly in the horse racing industry.
