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.
ACTIValoe® is 100% organic – from start to finish absolutely no chemicals, pesticides or preservatives are used. 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™, was the first Aloe vera ingredient to achieve GRAS status with the FDA as a food ingredient.
So regardless of what health support help you seek from Aloe vera – digestion and intestinal health, blood sugar control, or heart health – the presence of Qmatrix™ ACTIValoe® in AloeCran™ provides optimal potency.
PACran®: Provides the Goodness Found in WHOLE Cranberry
Proanthocyanidins (PACs) are the phytonutrients believed to be mainly responsible for many of the health benefits associated with cranberries. Cranberries contain unique A-type PACs, seldom found elsewhere in nature, that help promote urinary tract health.
This led many other companies to isolate PACs and sell ingredients with high PAC concentrations – the thought being more must be better.
However, to optimize 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% whole cranberry fruit ingredient. With PACran®, you get every part of the cranberry – the juice, flesh, skin and seeds.
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 up to twice as much as other whole cranberry powders.
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 average 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) maintain healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels, ii) support blood sugar health and iii) improve intestinal health and elimination.
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 most 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 it's less likely Fibersol®-2 will cause excess gas, bloating or release acid in your gut.
What’s more, Fibersol®-2 is a completely “clean” fiber. It is made from Non-GMO 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.
