Possible Prophylaxes of Aloe Vera Gel Ingestion to Butyrate Metabolism

Akira Yagi, Amal Kabbash, Lamiaa Al-Madboly


There is a growing interest in butyrate because its impact on epigenetic mechanisms will lead to more specific and efficacious therapeutic strategies for the presentation and treatment of different disease ranging from genetic/metabolic conditions to neurological degeneration disorders. The dietary natural source of butyrate through a high fiber diet or butyrate produced by fermentation of non-digestive fiber, such as acemannan in Aloe Vera leaf gel, is a highly appealing approach to present a simple and relatively low risk method to potentially improve outcomes in aged people with brain troubles. In this review, we will discuss the pharmacological effects of butyrate as a histone deacetylase inhibitor to an insulin resistance and energy expenditure, and as pro-drugs to ulcerative colitis and cancer, and the gut-liver axis in pre-clinical treatment.
