The power of Acemannan is extraordinary.

Aloemannan-FX is organic aloe vera.  It grows on a tropical volcanic island. A proprietary freeze drying method processes the monosaccarides at the time of harvest. This method is designed to maximally preserve the short chain, immune-supporting polysaccharide called acemannan.  Acemannan is naturally inherent in aloe.  To learn more about polysaccharides read more. You will learn how they are critical to your immune system.

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. Acemannan is composed of mannose, glucose and galactose monomers making it into a polysaccaride.

Because of its extremely large size acemannan taken orally must be broken down into smaller pieces to facilitate absorption through the gut. Early studies suggested that β-linked polysaccharides could not be broken down into usable pieces by the cells lining the gut.  Today we know that probiotics (friendly microorganisms in the gut) can digest β-linked polysaccharides and specifically they can digest acemannan.  Studies have shown that the epithelial cells lining the gut have mannose-specific receptors for the active uptake of mannose from the gut and transporting it to the blood stream.  Ingested acemannan is distributed to the liver, followed by the spleen, brain, kidney, heart, pancreas and thymus.

The power of Acemannan and the digestive tract

The power of acemannan stimulates intestinal motility.  It improves the elimination process to move allergenic proteins from the small intestine into the colon.  All these processes help to normalize gastrointestinal wall structure and function and therefore stop the viscous cycle of immune system damage.

The power of Acemannan and cell communication

Acemannan has been shown to facilitate communication between cells at a distance by stimulating the release of cytokines. Cytokines are key to cell communication.

Background to Acemannan

Acemannan is a mannose rich polysaccharide which is found in the inner leaf gel of aloe vera plant.  For over 6000 years, acemannan has been used as a medicine. Scientific research has shown that the human body has evolved highly specific and efficient mechanisms to extract mannose from the diet. Our body has developed symbiotic relationships with probiotic microorganisms to process mannose rich polysaccharides such as acemannan.  Again, this is a key reason for making sure you are nurturing your microbiome and putting in  good probiotic bacteria.

Leaky gut and Acemannan

In the digestive trace, polysaccharides in aloe act as strong anti-inflammatory agents, neutralizing many of the enzymes responsible for damaging the mucosal wall.  This has great implications for the epidemic presence of leaky gut in people today.  Taking an acemannan supplement can help heal your leaky gut.  It can help heal the intestinal wall and experience less absorption of allergic foreign proteins.    Acemannan can help with the repair of the tissue. This is critical to so many of us. Research has also demonstrated anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti – fungal properties.  So acemannan could help control Candida overgrowth which is so difficult to overcome.

Allergies and Acemannan

Acemannan protects mucous membranes against allergies, too much phlegm and reduces puffiness in the body.

These monosaccarides can help with clearing the lungs of phlegm or excess phlegm elsewhere in the body and for those experiencing sinus issues.   Acemannan is an immune modulator.

What are Saccharides?

Saccharides (carbohydrates) are complex compounds made up of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen and they occur as linear molecules (such as glucose) or circular molecules (such as deoxyribose).

Saccharides can occur as individual molecules termed monosaccharides or in complex polymers terms oligosaccharides or polysaccharides.

In individual cells monosaccarides are building blocks for larger saccharide structures, glycolipids and glycoproteins.  They metabolize providing energy for the cell function and cell replication.

Scientists have identified over 200 different naturally occurring monosaccharides.  Eight of these 200 monosaccarides are essential monosaccharides. Glyconutrients is another name for these 8 monosaccarides. They have a critical role in cell biology and intracellular communication.

 Benefits and Power of Acemannan

Scientific research has shown that acemannan is useful for a host of issues, including those related to the immune and digestive systems. Acemannan stimulates osteoblasts which are cells which originate in the bone marrow and contribute to the production of new bone. It is a bridge between foreign proteins and macrophage cells in the human body.

Here is a list of some of the benefits of Acemannan:

Wound healing

  • Stimulate fibroblast and connective tissue formation
  • Enhance repair processes and epithelial cell growth
  • Greater immune system
  • Activate cell death which is necessary for health
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Inhibit histamine formation
  • Antibacterial
  • Antiviral
  • Immunomodulant
  • Stimulate macrophages to produce nitric oxide and cytokines
  • Support blood sugars
  • Stimulate the synthesis and release of insulin
  • Psoriasis
  • and much more….

We offer Acemannan in the form of an organic aloe vera product with extraordinary healing properties for multiple health issues by Premier Research Labs called AloeMannan-FX.

AloeMannan-FX available at Kelway Health Products

AloeMannan-FX that we carry at Kelway Health is available to purchase at Kelway Health Products – is a unique synergistic acemannan formula with patented calcium bentonite and Luo Han Duo extract for added support. It is mostly pure aloe from inner leaf gel with some sugars in it.

How to take AloeMannan-FX

When you take AloeMannan-FX, you open up the capsule and put it into your mouth.  It tastes pleasant.  Remember this is how you absorb it into the digestive tract.  Use AloeMannan-FX every time you mud pack yourself or work with a client mud packing.
