- Supports Gastrointestinal Function
- Supports Bowel Regularity
Cape aloe has been used for thousands of years to promote the health of epithelial tissue, including the bowel lining. Cape aloe contains a class of phytonutrient compounds called anthraquinone glycosides. When ingested, these compounds are activated through bacterial metabolism in the gut, promote water retention in the stool, and stimulate peristalsis in the large intestine. By causing active chloride secretion, cape aloe increases the water and electrolyte content in the stool and eases elimination without artificial additives and cramping associated with other therapies.
Zulu Aloe is intended for the relief of occasional constipation. Cape aloe, the solid residue obtained by evaporating liquid aloe ferox, has been shown in the research to affect regularity due to its influence on colon peristalsis, which it triggers to contract, resulting in accelerated intestinal passage. This formulation Zulu Aloe is available as 250 and 450 mg capsules, two potencies to provide tailored natural support for elimination.

Despite the lack of published studies, aloe preparations have been in the United States Pharmacopoeia for more than 100 years. Anecdotal evidence suggests cape aloe supports normal inflammatory response in the gastrointestinal tract. Studies demonstrate that cape aloe increases stool bulk and bowel transit time and improves microflora balance. Cape aloe also supports the colon to help maintain a healthy gastrointestinal tract.
