Do you consider yourself an expert on natural supplements? Are you familiar with acemannan? Most people have never heard of acemannan, nor would they connect it with Aloe Vera. Below we discuss what acemannan is, what its benefits may be, and how to consume it.
WHAT IS ACEMANNAN?
Acemannan is a complex polysaccharide found in the inner leaf gel of the aloe plant. A specialized cell called a leucoplast produces the acemannan. It's composed of mannose, glucose, and galactose monomers making it into a polysaccharide. Acemannan and its concentration is the specific component that sets Aloe Vera apart from the 400 other species of aloe plants. Acemannan contains many nutritional qualities and is thought to be responsible for many of the benefits associated with Aloe Vera.
BENEFITS OF ACEMANNAN
Scientific research has shown that acemannan is useful for a host of issues. Below is a list of potential benefits of acemannan that have been identified by scientists:
Promotes a healthy immune response
Supports absorption of nutrients in the GI tract
Helps maintain heart health
Promotes digestive health
Helps maintain already healthy blood sugar levels
BEST WAY TO CONSUME ACEMANNAN?
A sure-fire way to know you are correctly consuming acemannan is to make sure that the Aloe Vera product you are using is made from the inner Aloe Vera leaf, as opposed to the outer or whole leaf. There are huge differences between the inner and outer aloe leaf - mainly that certain compounds within the outer leaf can cause gastric distress. You can also consume fresh Aloe Vera directly from the inner leaf, but the taste can be bitter and overpowering. It's also difficult to consume gel from the inner aloe leaf without also ending up with part of the outer leaf.
The best and most efficient way to consume aloe and receive the maximum amount of acemannan is to utilize the benefits of an organic aloe extract or aloe capsules. These products contain concentrated amounts of acemannan and are easy to work into your daily diet.
