OUR SUPREME IMMUNE HEALTH FORMULA
The Aloe Arborescens Supreme Immune Health Formula™ contains Aloe Arborescens plant polysaccharides like Acemannan, anthraquinones and Aloe-emodin that science has shown can modulate the body’s own innate immune system to recognize and destroy aberrant cells caused by chemicals, free radicals, radiation and pathogens (like viruses) that induce genetic code degredation. The acemannan polysaccharide fraction is known for its ability to restore and boost the immune system by stimulating the production of macrophages and improving the activity of T- lymphocytes by up to 50%. Acemannan produces immune agents such as interferon and interleukin which help destroy disregulated aberrant cells.* It also improves cellular metabolism by normalizing cellular function and regulating the flow of nutrients and waste in and out of the cells. Ask your doctor if this formula might be indicated as nutritional support to protect the immune system from the toxic side effects of treatments that have been prescribed for you. The anthraquinone compound aloin promotes gentle whole-body detoxification and healthy blood. In addition to whole leaf Aloe Arborescens juice, the formula contains another potent co-factor, 100% raw unpasteurized honey, that research science has now shown has a similar mechanism in enhancing or activating normal macrophage immune response.
While the concentration blend of its two key ingredients and its preservative system remains proprietary, Deca Aloe, points out that the two immunodulatory nutrient ingredients have been extensively-studied and researched. The first, and most important, is Aloe. However, it is not the well-known and commonly used Aloe vera juice, but the most powerful, highest quality variety, Aloe Arborescens (AA) grown organically in Italy. Its leaves are 200% richer in medicinal properties,and has a long history of boosting the body’s innate immune system to reinvigorate the health of people of all ages, including children.
Once medical professionals try the Supreme Immune Health Formula™ on their own patients, it is sure to become adopted as a physician-recommended Medical Food and a valuable new tool in their ongoing efforts to restore health and to combat early mortality.
Deca Aloe uses only five-year-old botanical plants grown on organic from farms in southern Italy, and processed into juice at a processing facility also located in Italy.
U.S. manufacturing of the blended formula is done at a FDA current Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) compliant plant in Dallas/Fort Worth Texas. The facility utilizes the most advanced technology in Aloe juice production that occurs in a pharmaceutical grade environment with intense quality control inspections at each stage of the process.
DISCOVERED IN BRAZIL AND CLINICALLY TESTED IN ITALY
Several medicinal plants and their formulas used by various indigenous peoples are the potential source of new healing remedies. For centuries native Brazilians seeking to recover health have traditionally used this immune support formula. After seeing this formula work on five continents, Father Romano Zago, OFM (Order of the Friars Minor) Brazilian scholar, aloe researcher, and author publicized this Brazilian immune formula for the benefit of mankind in two books sold on Amazon. (“Cancer Can Be Cured” and “Aloe Isn’t Medicine… Yet It Cures“) He collaborated with world-renowned research oncologist Dr. Paolo Lissoni, at the St. Gerardo Hospital in Milan, Italy, division of oncology, along with 6 other top scientists to conduct a study using the traditional recipe as an adjunct to Chemotherapy with 240 test subjects. Half of them were given this remarkable recipe and the outcome was very beneficial. The results verified the recipe inhibits the proliferation of dysregulated aberrant cells … exhibits immune-stimulating and antioxidant effects … enhances survival time … and reduces toxicities, as proven by radiological evaluations.*
His name on the Supreme Immune Health Formula product label recognizes his collaborative contributions and vouches for the authenticity of the original Brazilian Immune Health Formula in each bottle.*

The stabilized aloe arborescens juice used by Deca Aloe in it Supreme Immune Health Formula is produced from 5-year old Aloe arborescens plants harvested at the proper time, processed by grinding the whole leaf into a liquid without heating, cold pressing or freeze drying in order to retain all the active glucomannan polysaccharides (4%), such as mannose (Acemannan) (2 ml per serving) to provide maximum immune system support. Also this product also contains raw, unpasteurized, pesticide-free honey (6.4 g per serving) and 1% organic grain alcohol for the purest and best absorption when taken short or long term.
Deca Aloe’s plants are grown in organic soil on farms in Southern Italy and processed into juice at a processing facility also located in Italy.
U.S. manufacturing of the blended formula is done at an FDA current Good Manufacturing Practices cGMP compliant plant in Fort Worth, Texas. The facility utilizes the most advanced technology in Aloe juice production that occurs in a pharmaceutical grade environment with intense quality control inspections at each stage of the process.
DECA ALOE’S MARKET ADVANTAGE
We only use whole-leaf Aloe arborescens juice made by grinding the whole leaf from the plant into a liquid rather than extracting a suspected key leading ingredient. (A process called standardization) When taken in whole-leaf liquid form it presents the body a balanced solution. The leading active key constituents are properly placed by nature, in proportions mixed with other ingredients to work.
Whole leaf Aloe aborescens is the most potent aloe species grown due to the higher content of medicinal properties.
Research has confirmed that the largest concentration of the most potent and most prolific aloe polysaccharides are found just under the aloe outer leaf surface along with the other active molecules like the Anthraquinones such as aloin, aloe-emodin, and chrysophanic acid responsible for Aloe’s healing promoting effects. 4, 6 This is the principle reason we grind the whole leaf to make the liquid Aloe arborescens juice in our formula highly potent.
This dietary supplement qualifies as a Medical Food under the Orphan Drug Act of 2005, for the dietary management of medical conditions based on recognized scientific principles and medical evaluation. Ask your physician to recommend this product as a Medical Food to be part of your therapy regime.
The Synergy Factor (Where Aloe’s Health Supporting Potency Lies) 4
There are more than 200 biologically active components (phytonutrient constituents) found in the sap, gel and the entire whole leaf of the botanical Aloe Arborescens which has the highest concentration of these properties of all the known 250 aloe varieties, including Aloe Vera.
Sophisticated research has revealed that Aloe’s greatest potency is almost invariably achieved through a combination of the constituents found in the rind or outer layer of the leaf and those in the soft pulp like gel acting in synergism. Despite all the contenders like the polysaccharide molecule Acemannan for the title “key ingredient” it is the synergy of all the health promoting constituents working together that allows the healing. The symphonic energy of everything working together includes the splendid chemistry of other plant components such as amino acids, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, anthraquinones, lignin, saponins, and polysaccharides (including Acemannan) working in concert. This is why our whole leaf Aloe arborescens juice based formula is superior in potency to other products that are made with extracts of aloe constituents but do not have the synergy factor of the medicinal and nutritional properties found in the whole leaf of the aloe plant.
Honey, the Potent Co-factor in the Formula
With raw unpasteurized honey in the formula the nutrient properties in the aloe are more effective. First and most important is because the honey acts as a carrier agent of the aloe properties to the remote parts of the body so they are more fully utilized to support the immune system. The second reason is that honey acts as a natural preservative to protect the active health promoting constituents in aloe from degradation. Raw honey is the only food that never spoils or expires and has an indefinite shelf life. The third reason is honey is a therapeutic agent with many health promoting properties.
Medicinal Honey research is undergoing a substantial renaissance. Research has shown raw honey contains the living form of an immune-boosting probiotic bacteria called Lactobacillus kunkeei which stimulates the cells’ immunity processes. Flower nectars are providing the bees with this immune-boosting probiotic bacteria.
This probiotic bacteria provides numerous health benefits to their host. These include providing direct immune function support, assisting and stimulating the immune system, and providing enzymes for digestion along with other chemicals used by the metabolism of the host. 8,9
Just as other probiotic bacteria do, these bacteria produce lactic acid and acetic acid – both of which assist in the correct pH of our intestinal tracts. These acids also set up an environment which helps prevent the growth of many types of pathogenic bacteria and yeasts.
Research has also shown that honey’s ability to stimulate the immune system has a lot to do with the fact that flower nectars also contain plant polyphenols and other phytochemicals.
Honey potentiates the abnormal cell regulatory activity of some chemotherapeutic drugs. Studies exhibiting cell normalization effect of honey range from tissue cultures and animal models to clinical trials. Polyphenols in honey are considered as one of the main factors responsible for the regulatory activity of honey. Due to increased antimicrobial resistance, natural agents with medicinal and immunomodulatory effects have gained more attention. Honey is a natural substance with traditional and documented antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and wound healing effects.
