 Mannatech's aloe vera extract for weight loss

A multilevel marketer called Mannatech is airing an infomercial about
an aloe vera extract (tradename Manapol) that they claim will cause
a dramatic loss in body fat.  Is there anything to this?

Well, aloe vera is well known as a pretty strong purgative, but I
doubt they are selling something that will cause weight loss by
constant severe diarrhea, effective as it may be....

I have been taking Mannatech supplements with Manapol "and Dioscorea"
for 20+
months and have lost 53 lbs. and 9" off my waist without dieting and
without
exercising -- I am 5'10" and did weigh 255. I have heard of other
testimonies
with even better results. However, I do not know if the supplements we
took
are the ones in the infomercial. I have only seen a few minutes of one
infomercial about 2 months ago as I was surfing through the channels.
;-)

That infomercial was for a new FOODFORM vitamin/mineral supplement with
Manapol. I have not tried this supplement nor have I heard of any
testimonies,
so I do not know if it would help with weight loss. This supplement does
not
contain Dioscorea (wild yam) which, from what I have read and heard over
the
past 2 years, helps with weight loss when combined with Manapol, the
stabilized and standardized "functional" component of aloe which has the
properties of being synergistic and adjuvant.

Hope this helped.

Mannatech markets a rather narrow range of products through its network
marketing business plan (do not confuse with other network marketing
schemes, please!).  All of their products contain the patented
functional component of the Aloe Vera plant, Manapol tm., not the entire
plant, which is a known laxative.  

The products include an aloe vera supplement for the immune system, a
dioscorea supplement for the endocrine system, a vegetable nutrient
supplement for the phyto-chemical support, and a series of FoodForm tm
vitamin and mineral supplements tailored to three different metabolic
profiles.

And while many of us Mannatech associates have experienced great weight
loss ( i have not), not all do, nor does Mannatech market any product
claiming any weight loss benefit.  However, when provided the proper
nutritional raw material, the body does exhibit many benefits, of which
weight loss is commonly reported.

At the risk of rambling on....I will be glad to enter any discussion of
the Mannatech products at your leisure, and I can provide what I believe
to be excellent supporting studies and documentation.

Yes, I am a Mannatech associate, and also an intelligent person always
open to new ideas and persuasive arguments.  Formerly a skeptic of
all networkers, I am now a convert after researching the compnay,
the technology, the leadership of the company, and most
importantly, the products.

Thank you for reading this response.  Randy
