What Makes This Product Unique?


What Makes This Product Unique?

Did you know that your gut contributes to the most critical functions of your entire body, such as metabolism and immunity?

That’s right—a heathy gut can mean a healthy overall well-being. With over 100 trillion bacteria residing in the gut, it plays a vital role in our metabolism and overall health. While gut bacteria perform a variety of duties, they are largely responsible for the short chain fatty acids that become energy sources for our bodies. This inspired the combination of aloe and astaxanthin to create Ultimate Aloe™ with AstaReal® Astaxanthin, which offers support for your gut and digestive system.*

Aloe vera contains over 200 nutrients. Ultimate Aloe Powder is derived from whole aloe and retains the qualities of aloe vera through a proprietary extraction process called ActivAloe™; isolating and concentrating the most active polysaccharides while removing undesirable components, such as aloin and emodin which may cause digestive upset.

We’ve combined aloe with the powerful benefits of astaxanthin, the carotenoid that gives the reddish pigment to some algae, salmon, crab, krill, and lobster. Ultimate Aloe™ with AstaReal® Astaxanthin’s formula uses AstaReal®† astaxanthin, which ranks among the purest and most powerful antioxidants available. AstaReal® uses precision cultivation techniques in state-of the-art facilities, producing astaxanthin from Haematococcus pluvialis, a freshwater microalga, in a purified and sterile environment. This proprietary process allows it to be fully cold-water soluble in seconds while remaining lightly flavored and easily digested.*

Key Ingredients Found in Ultimate Aloe ™ with AstaReal™ Astaxanthin


Whole Aloe Vera: 300 mg

Aloe is a cactus-like succulent that grows in hot, dry climates. Its name was derived from the Arabic word “Alloeh”, meaning a “shining bitter substance” and vera came from the Latin word “vera”, meaning “true”. Dating back thousands of years, aloe vera has been used for various cosmetic and health purposes and has been found and described in writings in many different cultures and as far back as the Greek, Egyptian, and Roman eras. Because Aloe vera has been transplanted so widely across the globe for commercial reasons, its ancestral home is particularly mysterious and has been a matter of some debate. The first known written reports of Aloe vera are from ancient Egypt, where it was regarded as a sacred plant holding secrets to beauty, health, and immortality. It was known as the “plant of eternity”, and it was documented in the “Ebers Papyrus”, a preserved document, of approximately 1500 BC. *

The ground whole leaf of the plant has been used as a health agent or cosmetic ingredient for thousands of years in promoting normal healing and healthy digestion and continues to gain in popularity as an effective health supplement. Today, Aloe vera is used topically to soothe skin and consumed to support digestive health and comfort. In addition to its potential digestive health benefits, research has suggested that aloe vera might also help support the immune system, promote healthy skin, and even assist in supporting normal blood sugar levels. *

 

Astaxanthin (AstaReal®) 2 mg:

Astaxanthin is a carotenoid that gives the reddish pigment to some algae, salmon, crab, krill and lobster. It is known for its powerful antioxidant effects and has been shown to be a superior free radical quencher when compared to other antioxidants like coenzyme Q10 and green tea. AstaReal®† provides sustainably sourced Astaxanthin from Haematococcus Pluvialis. *

Human clinical studies have demonstrated the potential benefits of astaxanthin in supporting normal cardiovascular health.  Research reveals a possible link between astaxanthin derived from algae and normal healthy levels of HDL, a form of lipid respected for its cardio-protective benefits. *

With exercise comes the creation of free radicals.  Specifically, singlet oxygen free radicals.  These radicals are particularly problematic in aging and cellular endurance. Meaning, with age comes a slowing down of our ability to quench these free radicals as fast as they are produced.  Athletes and those that exercise regularly, regardless of age, create these free radicals at a significant rate. Individuals in both groups may benefit from a nutritional intervention of AstaReal® Astaxanthin to meet their metabolic demands. *

Does Ultimate Aloe™ with AstaReal® Astaxanthin need to be refrigerated?

The product does not need to be refrigerated until opened.  Best when consumed within 30 days of opening.

Why does the taste vary?

The taste will vary from lot to lot due to the seasonal time of harvest. The sun and the amount of water the plants receive are directly responsible for the ripeness of the plants. Just as with any vegetable, you will have a different taste depending upon the growing process.

How does aloe work?

Aloe vera works because the green skin of the plant produces, and the sap stores, at least six beneficial health agents: lupeol, salicylic acid, urea nitrogen, cinnamomic acid, phenol, and sulfur. In addition, the plant also produces at least 23 proteins (polypeptides) and at least four mannan sugars, which might help promote healthy skin and support the immune system. *

What is Astaxanthin?

Astaxanthin is a carotenoid that gives the reddish pigment to some algae, salmon, crab, krill and lobster. Ultimate Aloe™ with AstaReal® Astaxanthinuses a fully sustainable source of red pigmented algae. Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant and it does not become a pro-oxidant. This means, even under tremendous oxidative stress, astaxanthin does not create free radicals from itself or its metabolism.   *

Where is the astaxanthin in Ultimate Aloe™ with AstaReal® Astaxanthin sourced?

This product uses only AstaReal®† Astaxanthin, which is manufactured from carefully cultivated microalgae (Haematococcus pluvialis) in state-of-the-art facilities.

AstaReal astaxanthin was added to this great formula to enhance the digestive and skin health benefits. Additionally, the flavor of AstaReal helps give the natural aloe a pleasant taste boost. *
