People interested in health maintenance who want to strengthen, revitalize and maintain a healthy immune system while gently detoxifying the body for optimal health and protection.
How does the formula work?
In the Brazilian natural health formula the immune-modulating property in Aloe arborescens is carried out by the glucomannans, a class of long-chained sugars derived from the plants, which have demonstrated in clinical and laboratory studies to have a wide variety of protective and immunostimulating effects in the human body. Aloe Arborescens Miller contain the largest concentrations of acetylmannan, the most active form available existing in nature. The acemannan molecule, in particular, produces immunomodulating effects that regulate immune defenses according to the body’s requirements. This mucopolysaccharide deals with the damaging processes of the body by acting as an immune stimulant, principally by stimulating the production of T lymphocytes and macrophages from the thymus and the beta cells of the pancreas.
What immune depressive conditions have in common is a high incidence of digestive dysfunctions, generally manifested by poor digestion. A common denominator in all the beneficial actions of acemannan is the ability to coat and permeate all the gastrointestinal surfaces, increasing the fluidity and the permeability of these membranes. In this way, it allows the easy expulsion of toxins and an even faster absorption of nutritive factors. This stops the immune system from intervening in internal digestive support, which could cause its compromise, and saves the immune defenses for where they may be really needed. In this way, Aloe Arborescens supports normal homeostasis.
The purifying action of Aloe Arborescens juice is due to several molecules. The aloin contained in the outer rind leaf part of the plant supports normal bowel function and has blood purifying effects. Saponins are also present in the gel, with their detergent and exfoliating action, especially in relation to the integumentary apparatus. Potassium, a mineral, carries out a fundamental role which makes it possible to eliminate waste products derived from oxidation processes that occur in the cytoplasm. Even in this case, the complex sugar, acemannan, strengthens cell walls, so that the toxins created by metabolism and secondary reactions due to partially digested food can be properly eliminated from the body.1
Why is bees’ honey used?
Honey is able to move to all parts of the body. It is the vehicle that carries the aloe, which cleanses and removes impurities it finds along the way. This procedure performs general cleansing of the entire body – especially the blood. Purified blood is directly responsible for the health of the body and consequently for the life of the person. By taking aloe arborescens, you are investing in your health as you work toward improving the quality of your life.
Honey is sweet like sugar so how is it safe to use by someone on a restricted sugar diet?
Honey and refined sugars greatly differ not only in chemical characteristics but also in physiological effects. The circumstance alone that honey contains invert sugars and saves the debilitated alimentary organs the additional labor of inverting commercial sugars, is an important factor and of considerable advantage. Honey provides a natural sweetener that can be used instead of sugar. Honey is a whole food that comes from plant nectar and does not raise blood sugar as simple sugars do. Honey also contains a variety of minerals and vitamins and has a long history as a health food. Honey has traditionally been used down-regulate the unwanted part of the microbiome. Studies show that honey has a lower glycemic index than table sugar. Honey helps regulate normal cell growth.
According to the book Honey Revolution by Dr Ron Fessenden, scientists have found floral flavonoids in honey. These tiny traces of bioflavonoids, generally known as antioxidants, have powerful influences when entered into the body’s cells. When ingested, they increase the antioxidant levels within cells, “decrease capillary permeability and fragility. They scavenge oxidants and inhibit the destruction of collagen in the body”. In fact in recent years, major drug companies recognized the effectiveness of these flora-flavones in removing free radicals from our body and improving our body immunity functioning, and are now investing millions of dollars just to produce these substances artificially. The foraging honeybees have passed on these precious natural floral-flavones from the floral nectars to honey and then to us! (www.benefits-of-honey.com)
Why is 1% Distillate used?
Distillate on its own may seem the least important ingredient, but the third component of the preparation is not used by chance or whim. The distillate helps promote the dilation of the blood vessels. In older people especially, dilated blood vessels can speed up the cleansing action of the aloe and honey.
Where did the formula originate?
It was discovered in Brazil. For centuries native Brazilians have used this immune formula consisting of a blend of ground up whole leaf Aloe Arborescens liquid and raw unheated honey to support immune health. 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. His name in the trade mark/logo recognizes his collaborative contributions and vouches for the authenticity of the original Brazilian Immune Health Formula in each bottle.
Are there any potentially harmful preservatives?
No, there are no harmful preservatives. We use all-natural, safe preservatives.
There are some Aloe products that state clearly on their label: “No Preservatives.” This is an attempt to gain the favor of consumers who wish to avoid added chemicals in food products. However, since Aloe is a vegetable juice, it must be properly preserved, or it will rot from growth ofnbacteria, mold, or other organisms. The only sure, effective, and approvednway to prevent this is to add small amounts of preservatives such as sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate, which keep bacterial and fungal growth in check, and anti-oxidants such as vitamin C. In addition, an acidic pH discourages microbial replication. Citric acid is usually added to lower the pH of Aloe beverages. The only alternative to these preservatives would be constant refrigeration, which is impractical.
The simple fact is that if a product states that it uses no preservatives, it most likely either does not contain any Aloe, or marketing company may not add any preservatives, their supplier or processor added them. There are hundreds of brands of Aloe supplements on the market, but only a handful of processors and growers, who do not wish to risk their reputation or a liability suit by producing a product that will rot.
To preserve the nutritional potency of the raw (unheated) Aloe Arborescens juice used in our formula, it must be stabilized. This process involves the addition of small quantities of other ingredients that are part of our preservative system. If someone is marketing an aloe based product that states it is completely preservative-free, you know you’re not getting a completely fresh product.
Our preservative system consists of these stabilizing ingredients in small quantities:
- Potassium Sorbate
- Sodium Benzoate
- Sodium Lactate
- Citric Acid
With the new generation of whole leaf aloe-based products, the goal of choosing an effective Aloe Arborescens-based supplement should be to buy the one closest in content to the fresh whole leaf, with the most healing components left in, at the best price. This seems to rule out gel-only products.
Our product is fresh. It consists of juice produced from premier quality five-year-old Aloe Arborescens plants harvested at the proper time, processed by grinding the whole leaf into a juice without heating, cold pressing or freeze drying in order to retain all the active polysaccharides and phytonutrients needed to guarantee maximum effectiveness. The recipe of Aloe Arborescens juice, honey, and 1% alcohol is stabilized for a long shelf life with the use of safe preservatives found in nature.
What is Potassium Sorbate?
What is Sodium Benzoate?
This naturally occurring flavoring is derived from fruits such as blackberries and other mountain berries. It helps stabilize and prevent bacterial growth during product usage. Sodium benzoate is a sodium salt that is present at extremely low levels in berries, apples, plums, cinnamon, and several other natural foods. There’s nothing scary about the chemical in these items.
Consumed under normal conditions, it poses no great health dangers, says Don Schaffner, professor of food science at Rutgers University in New Jersey. “Sodium benzoate is still actively being studied, but in a comprehensive review [researchers] concluded that at levels being used in foods it doesn’t pose any health risk.”
The Food and Drug Administration limits sodium benzoate to concentrations of 0.1% by weight. In our Supreme Immune Health Formula gel, it is used in quantities of less than 0.1% to prevent spoilage after the bottle is opened.
Sodium benzoate has been proven to be safe and effective in the amount (0.1%), unheated, for use as a benign preservative. Sodium benzoate has been generally recognized as safe (GRAS) as a direct food additive and recently this status was reaffirmed (21 CFR §184.1733) for use as an antimicrobial agent, as defined in 21 CFR §170.3(o)(2), and as a flavoring agent and adjuvant, as defined in 21 CFR §170.3(o)(12).
(NOTE: A 1993 research paper that listed Sodium Benzoate as hazardous has been found to be inaccurate. Those reports of toxic findings have been shown to be unscientific and misinterpreted; all trials cited involved heat and large amounts of the preservative that far exceeded the 0.1% used in our product.)
Other misinterpreted reports of unfounded scientific studies on sodium benzoate and benzoic acid are also being used as a marketing strategy or ploy by some supplement manufactures to provoke safety concerns just to promote benzoate-free products.
Remember, don’t confuse Sodium Benzoate with Benzene. Benzene is a chemical that has been linked to increased risk of leukemia and other blood cancers. While sodium benzoate doesn’t contain benzene, it can form benzene when combined with ascorbic acid. The Organic Consumers Association says benzene levels between two and 20 parts per billion have been found in some soft drinks containing sodium benzoate and ascorbic acid, also known as vitamin C. The safe level of benzene for drinking water is only five parts per billion, making the amounts of benzene in some soft drinks a health concern.
The Aloe Arborescens-based Supreme Immune Health Formula produced by Deca Aloe Arborescens US LP does not contain any Benzene nor any Ascorbic Acid, also known as viiamin C. You can feel completely safe with our product.
What is Sodium Lactate?
Sodium Lactate is the natural salt derived from a natural fermentation product, lactic acid. It is naturally produced in the skin, according to an article published in Cosmetics and Toiletries, and also occurs naturally in all animal and human muscle tissue, according to Sodium-Lactate.com. It is often found in meat and poultry products as a preservative, thanks to its antimicrobial action and its ability to inhibit bacteria development (Wikipedia).

Why is Citric Acid Added?
Citric Acid is an organic acid that is a component of all aerobic living organisms—most abundantly, and not surprisingly, in citrus fruit. This weak acid has been used as an additive in processed foods for more than 100 years as a natural food preservative. By increasing acidity, the low pH conditions produced prevent bacterial and fungal growth, therefore prolonging the life of Aloe-based liquid dietary supplement. It also helps preserve flavor and maintains pH at a suitable level to prevent product degradation.

Where can the plant aloe arborescens be found and what is its botanical description?
The botanical aloe, already classified within the Liliacee family, is currently included in the Aloacee family. The species name arborescens means “tree like” which was originally applied to this species in reference to its stem-forming habit. It is also known as krantz aloe which refers to its natural habitat, a krantz being a rocky ridge or cliff. Aloe arborescens Miller grows wild in tropical and subtropical dry, arid regions of South America, South Africa, the southern border of the Mediterranean Sea, the Soviet Union and the Orient. It is cultivated commercially primarily in Italy. It is one of the few aloes whose range extends from sea level to mountaintops. The leaves are green and slightly concave, the edges are armed with teeth, and the rosettes are situated at the branch ends. Each rosette can produce terminal racemes of cylindrical orange to red flowers. This succulent plant grows up to 9 feet tall. Like its cousin aloe vera, it is rich in nutritional and health promoting herbal therapeutic properties.
