Uses of Aloe Products, e.g. Acemannan, in the Treatment of Diseases Requiring Intervention of the Immune System for Cure
Acemannan has been shown to be effective in treating a number of conditions where the principal mechanism of resolution or cure requires intervention by the patient's immune system. Acemannan has direct stimulatory effects on the immune system. In addition, acemannan directly interacts with virus or other infectious organisms, infected cells, and tumor cells to produce changes in their immunologically sensitive surface composition to alter the appearance of these agents and cause them to be recognized by the body's immune system and then destroyed. This document contains 51 examples on research and studies on acemannan for wide range of diseases including athlete's foot (50).
