Aloe Vera Consumption Increases Vitamin Bioavailability

LACEY, Wash.Recent research, sponsored by the International Aloe Science Council (IASC), concluded aloe vera increases levels of vitamins C and E in the bloodstream by more than 200 percent when consumed. The study also concluded aloe vera can enhance the bioavailability of both water- and fat-soluble vitamins, and has a natural time-release effect (vitamin levels were found to remain elevated for 24 hours, according to the study). Like aloe, vitamins C and E are known to be powerful antioxidants that boost immune system function, promote skin health, and protect cardiovascular health, said Ken Jones, director of research and development at Aloecorp ( The bioavailability research has created a landmark event and major turning point for the functional food and nutraceutical industry as these companies realize the benefits of incorporating aloe into their products containing vitamins C and E. By adding aloe vera to these and other supplement products, we are delivering to discerning consumers highly synergistic and superior products that allow them to gain maximum benefits from their supplements.
