Over 32 Million Servings Sold ...and Counting
AloeCran™ is delivered to your home as a ready to mix powder chock full of nutrients with a wide variety of potential health benefits. You simply add 6oz to 8oz of water (depending on your taste preference) to a scoop of powder, and in a snap you have a great tasting drink.
AloeCran™ doesn’t contain sugar, artificial sweeteners or preservatives that ruin the health benefits of the drink mix. In spite of this, you don’t sacrifice great taste - you just lose the calories and spike in blood sugar.
AloeCran™ contains the organic ACTIValoe® made with the revolutionary Qmatrix™ dehydration process. This delivers powder from the inner gel of the Aloe plant that is still “farm fresh.” ACTIValoe® has been used in more clinical studies than any other brand of aloe - showing benefits for cholesterol, blood sugar and immune system health, improving nutrient absorption and digestion, providing prebiotic activity and supporting antioxidant levels.
PACran® is made from the whole cranberry - the juice, flesh, skin and seeds. PACran® has been shown to support urinary tract and prostate health. In fact, PACran® was the first cranberry ingredient in the world to receive a government approved claim for urinary tract health. Cranberrries also have been shown to promote heart health and immune system function.
Each serving of AloeCran™ provides 5 grams of soluble fiber from Fibersol®-2. Since only about 50% of Fibersol®-2 ferments in the intestines, it’s much less likely to cause gas or bloating than other fiber products. In over 100 clinical studies and research papers, Fibersol®-2 has been shown to improve elimination and regularity, maintain healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels and help control the post meal spike in blood sugar. What’s more, Fibersol®-2 promotes satiety by prolonging stomach emptying time and acts as a prebiotic - helping beneficial bacteria flourish in the gut.
ACTIValoe®: Getting the Most Out of the Inner Gel of the Aloe plant
We chose ACTIValoe® for AloeCran™ because it’s made with a breakthrough dehydration technology - called Qmatrix™ - that sets a new standard for Aloe vera quality.
Qmatrix™ removes water from a fresh Aloe leaf using a low temperature/short time (LTST) method that protects heat sensitive Aloe nutrients.
Here’s the ACTIValoe® bottom line: when you add water to make a glass of AloeCran™, the Aloe vera will still be “farm fresh” - as pure and potent as if you freshly squeezed the juice from an Aloe leaf.
And ACTIValoe® is 100% organic - from start to finish absolutely no chemicals, pesticides or preservatives are used. There’s a reason why ACTIValoe® has been used in more clinical studies than any other Aloe vera ingredient - it’s simply “best in class.”
Each serving of ACTIValoe® is guaranteed to provide a minimum of 10% polysaccharides - the most important nutrients in Aloe vera.
What’s more, ACTIValoe® is certified for content and purity by the International Aloe Science Council (IASC).
On top of this, ACTIValoe® made with Qmatrix™, is the first and only Aloe vera ingredient to achieve GRAS status with the FDA as a food ingredient. ACTIValoe® was the subject of extensive safety studies conducted over two years that provided scientific support for the FDA.
So regardless of what health benefits you seek from Aloe vera - digestion and intestinal health, blood sugar control, or heart health - the presence of Qmatrix™ ACTIValoe® in AloeCran™ provides superior potency.
PACran®: Provides the Goodnes Found in WHOLE Cranberry
Proanthocyanidins (PACs) are the phytonutrients believed to be mainly responsible for many of the health benefits associated with cranberries. Science has shown that cranberries contain unique A-type PACs, seldom found elsewhere in nature, that help promote urinary tract, gastrointestinal, and cardiovascular health.
This led many other companies to isolate PACs and sell ingredients with high PAC concentrations - the thought being more must be better.
However, recent research has found that to maximize benefits from cranberry fruit, it’s best to get the nutrients from the entire cranberry - as nature made it - not just PAC fractions.
That’s why AloeCran™ contains the world’s premier whole cranberry ingredient named PACran® (pronounced “pack cran”).
PACran® is an all natural, 100% cranberry fruit ingredient. With PACran®, you get every part of the cranberry - the juice, flesh, skin and seeds.
Better yet, PACran®’s benefits have been demonstrated in multiple clinical studies conducted in the U.S and internationally.
One of the keys to PACran®’s potency is the type of cranberries used - which are the rare “Early Black” cranberries. In fact, these berries are harvested from cranberry bogs in Massachusetts that are over 100 years old.
Early Blacks are used because they’re the most potent cranberries around - and are the reason why PACran® contains 1.5% PACs, which is twice as much as other whole cranberry powders.
It’s also noteworthy that PACran® contains the first cranberry ingredient in the world to receive a government approved claim for urinary tract health.
Fibersol®-2: Helping to “Bridge” Your Daily Fiber Gap
A recent survey by the International Food Information Council found that 72% of Americans are trying to consume more fiber each day.
And for good reason - we don’t get close to what we need! Here is the simple math on fiber:
Both the USDA and the Institute of Medicine advise that adults get 14 grams of fiber for every 1,000 calories consumed. So if you eat the typical 2,000 calories each day, you should get 28 grams of fiber.
How much fiber does the aver-age American get?
Only about 12g to 16g - we struggle to get HALF of what is needed.
And in case you don’t know, fiber is needed to i) manage cholesterol and triglyceride levels, ii) keep blood sugar in a good range, iii) improve intestinal health and elimination, iv) keep weight and fat under control and v) boost immune health.
Before you choose a supplement, you should know about a couple of the problems with the fiber in many supplements.
For starters, there is the taste. Most fibers taste really bad - so you definitely don’t look forward to eating or drinking them.
Worse is the extra gas and acid release that can cause you needless discomfort and bloating. This happens because almost 100% of these fiber ingredients ferment in the intestines.
We considered these concerns and choose to use Fibersol®-2, a soluble dietary fiber, in AloeCran™.
One of the great features of FiberSol®-2 is that it’s odorless and tasteless. This is in contrast to other fiber supplements that often have a “chalky” or otherwise nasty taste.
Even better, only about 50% of FiberSol®-2 ferments in your large intestine (providing prebiotic activity) . So you don’t have to worry about Fibersol®-2 causing excess gas, bloating or releasing acid in your gut.
What’s more, Fibersol®-2 is a completely “clean” fiber. It is made from Iowa corn and is completely free of bacteria, GMO proteins, toxins and harmful pathogens. Using enzymes, the natural bonds between glucose molecules in corn starch are “strengthened” to withstand the digestion process - making Fibersol®-2 an indigestible carbohydrate, or dietary fiber.
The icing on the cake is there have been over 100 research papers and clinical studies published on Fibersol®-2 in the last two decades.
And this work has shown that Fibersol®-2 provides just about all of the health benefits you want from fiber as well demonstrating an impressive safety profile.
