Some species of Aloe are more superior than others in terms of their medicinal benefits, that’s why we only use imported Aloe Vera, (Barbedensis, Miller species) in Aloe Vera Comfort. Our unique formulation, developed by a pharmacist is why our product’s ability to retain the medicinal functions of mannan/polysaccharides remains superior. Adding to this, our controlled environment means we avoid variations in the quality, efficacy and uniformity of our Aloe Vera yield because we remove influencing factors such as climate and poor soil conditions.
Glyconutrients, also known as polysaccharides, are sugar molecules that have health benefits for your digestive system. These nutrients are found in the gel of fresh Aloe Vera leaves with the primary sources being mannose and galactose. These two molecules combine to form long sugar-molecule chains known as galactomannans.
The reason why Aloe Vera Comfort works so well is because our extraction process ensures that the galactomannans’ structure remains intact, allowing for effective oral consumption. Once swallowed, the galactomannans in the gel attach to receptor cells lining your gut and react positively by conveying subtle information that starts important cellular functions. These include the release of chemical messengers which help to calm the inflammatory stress response down, as well as aid the complete journey of digestion, helping to keep you regular.
An acidic environment in your stomach is essential to aid digestion and prevent infection. When you consume too many over-the-counter antacids it results in Hypochlorhydria (Too little acid which changes the pH of your stomach) and can lead to serious underlying conditions. What most people don’t know is that low stomach acid is the main cause of many gastro intestinal complaints which include acid reflux, heartburn, flatulence, bloating and IBS.
Digestive complaints and symptoms are the body’s way of telling you something’s wrong. If the mucosal lining of your gastric tract is already inflamed, it will only feel worse when irritants such as spicy foods, alcohol and specific medications with side effects are ingested.
Healthy digestion and absorption of nutrients depends on your body’s ability to secrete gastric juices which contain hydrochloric acid that breaks down food and kills harmful microorganisms. While antacids may give short-term relief from symptoms like indigestion and heartburn, their long-term effects can hamper your ability to digest effectively, which is detrimental to your overall health. Low stomach acid can lead to emerging conditions such as allergies, asthma and auto-immune disorders.
The soothing barrier effect from the mucilaginous gel in Aloe Vera Comfort not only helps to relieve these symptoms without interfering with acid production, but also, by communicating messages to cells, helps calm the inflammatory processes created by these symptoms.
Stress is the experience of any perceived threat (real or imagined) to one’s mental, physical or spiritual well-being. The natural response to stress is called ‘fight-or-flight’ which is a predictable, physiological response, that stimulates the body to produce energy to allow for the added concentration or agility needed to fight or flee from immediate danger. Problems begin when a stress response overreacts or continues unabated, even when it’s no longer needed.
Cortisol, which is produced during times of stress slows down processes like the digestive and immune systems which are important for managing overall wellness. Stress is implicated, if not a cause, of most diagnosed diseases, so it is essential that steps be taken to manage and balance out stress which is a day to day occurrence in our everyday lives.
By regularly having Aloe Vera Comfort you can proactively support the body through stressful times before digestive imbalances even begin. Then, by learning to identify what your stressors (causes of stress) are, you can look at various strategies to take control of some stress-inducing circumstances and learn how to take care of yourself both physically and emotionally during these times.
The duration will depend on your symptoms and lifestyle, everyone is different. Some people start to feel relief virtually straight away, for others, it may take longer. However, we urge you to continue with the recommended dosage of completing two bottles of Aloe Vera Comfort, taking it four times a day, even if your symptoms are gone. It is important to realise absence of symptoms does not necessarily mean absence of ‘disease’. Undoubtedly, for quicker and long-term results, it also requires help from you to develop an ‘eat right, think right and drink right’ philosophy.
No, it doesn’t have to be, but we find many people prefer the taste when it is chilled, plus it appears more soothing on inflamed mucosal linings. If you need to have it with you during the day, or if you have just started taking Aloe Vera Comfort, requiring the recommended four times a day dosage while completing two bottles, it will be fine outside of the fridge if it’s properly sealed. However, it must be stored below 25⁰ C and away from direct sunlight.
Taking the gel before meals is preferable, especially if you suffer from indigestion or heartburn. The thickened mucilaginous gel is soothing if cooled and forms a barrier against irritants like spicy foods, alcohol and toxins. If you suffer from the effects of IBS/spastic colon, or if you find the taste or viscosity difficult to swallow, you may prefer Aloe Vera Comfort in a smoothie for example.
Yes, it is suitable for the whole family. The effects of stress impact everyone, even children no matter their age. Interactions with young children from playgroups upwards can be daunting, and is often first noticed as complaints of a ‘sore tummy’ and not wanting to go to school. This is a classic example of emotions being experienced through the gut or “second brain”. Using Aloe Vera Comfort will help soothe sore tummies, and aid digestion, no matter the environment whether its school, tertiary, work or retirement.
Heartburn, indigestion, bloating and flatulence may also be due to low stomach acid, especially in those over 50 when stomach acid production naturally slows down. In this instance, food sits in the stomach for too long, leading to feelings of fullness. Meanwhile the small intestine receives bile waiting to neutralise the acid ‘soup’ coming from the stomach. Bile is both extremely alkalising and caustic at the same time. The bile creates a spasm just below the stomach that causes it to shoot up into the stomach, giving the first symptom of discomfort. The main symptom of indigestion occurs as the stomach then attempts to douse the bile with a second production of acid from depleted cells.
Like all naturally based remedies, Aloe Vera Comfort works best when you also make healthy changes to your lifestyle. “Eat right, think right, drink right.”

No, it doesn’t. Black staining of the gut, called, ‘Melanosis Coli’ is caused by anthraquinones, a part of the bitter, yellow-brown to reddish substance Aloin or Aloe Latex found between the rind and the inner leaf. This component also causes an unpleasant griping laxative effect and is removed as far as is possible from Aloe Vera Comfort.
