Just Getting Started

Greetings I’m the founder and General Manager of Mioty Voajanahary, the company producing Alomac in Madagascar. Alomac is made from the gel of Aloe macroclada, a type of aloe new to most of the world, yet well-known in Madagascar. After demonstrating Aloe macroclada gel increased circulating stem cells better than any other natural product, and

Growing Aloe macroclada

It’s more difficult to propagate Aloe macroclada than Aloe vera. Whereas Aloe vera sends out little baby offshoots which can be rooted as new plants, Aloe macroclada (vahona in Malagasy) does not. It flowers mostly at one time of year and each plant flowers every 2-5 years, depending on how healthy it is. Methods for

About harvesting

Aloe macroclada plants (vahona in Malagasy) grow over 1 meter tall (more than 3 feet) and can be 2 meters wide. The leaves grow to 1 meter long and have sharp spines along their edges. New leaves grow from the center of the plant and the most mature leaves are around the outside near the

Understanding Aloin Levels

Aloin A and B are the only anthraquinones found in Aloe macroclada (as well as in Aloe vera). Alomac’s manual leaf gel extraction procedures keep total aloin levels consistently below 10ppm. This level of aloin in the highest recommended Alomac doses is safe by a wide margin. Concentrations of aloin found (by third-party laboratory testing)

Aloin levels in Alomac

The only anthraquinones, referred to as hydroxyanthracene derivatives (HADs) in the EU, found in Aloe macroclada are aloin A & B. Gel extraction methods used to produce Alomac prevent the leaf sap from contaminating the gel during production of Alomac. Levels of aloin are below 10ppm (parts per million, microgram per gram (ug/g)). Published research

Aloin and Anthraquinones and Hydroxy Anthracene Derivatives

The bright yellow sap found in the skin of aloe leaves contains a group of compounds referred to as anthraquinones (common in US) and as hydroxyanthracene derivatives (common in EU). The Figure on the left is hydroxyanthracene and on the right is anthraquinone. Hydroxyanthracene can also be called dihydroxyanthraquinone. These Figures show the 3 ring
