In 1985 a small Supplement company between Dallas and Ft. Worth sold multiple products made from aloe leaf gel. Due to remarkable health restorations fostered by the company’s aloe beverage 20 million dollars for research and a new company Carrington Laboratories was founded. The goal was to identify the plant made molecule in aloe leaf gel that supported improved health and meet the requirements to make this substance a new FDA approved pharmaceutical. Multiple academic institutions were engaged to conduct the necessary FDA data required for a new drug. Multiple mechanisms for a wide range of benefits were produced and the plant leaf molecule was found to be acetylated mannose (acemannan). 1. The lack of toxicity in required FDA studies (no LD-50 nor LD-100) required for acemannan could be provided. 2. When aloe acemannan was taken orally, every deviation from normal health, physically, mentally, or emotionally improved. These two points were professional heresy, and the new drug application was rejected. Carrington had volumes of data attesting to the health supporting data aloe acemannan supported. The passage of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) awakened Carrington to the fact, aloe acemannan is not a drug, nor did it work like a drug and is a dietary supplement ingredient utilized in gene driven cellular synthesis. An international supplement company took acemannan to the marketplace and sold more than a billion dollars of product in the next ten years. This was only due to its support of unmatched health benefits. H.R. McDaniel, M.D. was a medical consultant for Carrington Laboratories . The following publications are selected from the vast number of benefits realized by aloe acemannan being restored to the modern food chain.

Effects of Nutritional Supplements on Attentional-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
K.D. Dykman, R. A. Dykman, Integrative Physiological and Behavioral Science, vol.33 no1. Jan. 1998
Parent and teacher evaluations of 17 students in special education were evaluated serially for 6 weeks for hyperactivity, inattentiveness, and oppositional defiant and compulsive disorders. Significant, progressive improvements were documented.
The Effect of Nutritional Supplementation on Alcoholics: Mood States and Craving for Alcohol
K.D.Dykman, J.Briggs, J. Am. Nutra.Assoc. Supp.1, August 1997.
Five subjects meeting formal criteria for alcoholism were given a glyconutrient formulation for 6 weeks. Craving averaged on a scale of 0 to -10, was initially 4.9 and dropped to 2.8. Improvements in depression, cognition, energy, anger/temper and outlook on life were noted. A 6 month follow up found all cases continued their dietary change and the benefits had persisted.
Case Report: Observed Improvements in Developmental Dyslexia Accompanied by Supplementation with Glyconutrients and Phytonutrients
D.J. Benton, J. Am Nutra. Assoc. Supp. 1, August 1997.
This 8 y/o physician’s son demonstrated academic progress and improved attitude toward school. He went from the lower third of his class in grades to the middle third. Less irritability and frustration with an improved memory was observed.
Glyconutrients and Perception, Cognition, and Memory
A.N. Stancil, L.H. Hicks, Perceptual Mot Skills,10:259-270. 2009.
Drs. Atiya N. Stancil and Leslie H. Hicks, both of Howard University in Washington, D.C., published this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study investigating the impact of glyconutrient complex on the brain function of 62 healthy young college students. The study showed that a single, one tablespoon serving of glyconutrient complex significantly improved visual discrimination and working memory. Student test scores increased when the glyco-nutrients were taken while studying, as compared to a control session composed of the same group.
The Chicago Results Project: Micronutrients Improve Student Attitudes and Academic Performance
A. Yisrael, M. Morris, Proc Fish. Inst. Med. Res. Vol.3, No1, August 2003.
58 total students, 17 kindergartens, 41 grade school, that had exhausted resources of the public school system and were in a private church facility and on medications for ADD/ADHD were provided a glyconutrient-phytonutrient formulation. Teachers reported a marked reduction in student-student and student-teacher conflicts. Attention spans were increased. Disciplinary actions decreased 90%. Property damage was reduced. 12 students no longer required medications. Attendance rose 45%. Tardiness was reduced 50%. Minor illness was decreased 75% Teacher’s rated the school noise level to decrease 95% and learning environment improved 100%.Parent support and cooperation with the school greatly improved and the student behavior and study habits at home were markedly elevated.

S. Nisinzwelg, Proc.Fish. Inst. Med.Res., Vol. 1, No 3, September 1999.
In 25 autistic children 21 completed the protocol, 4 girls and 21 boys.Glyconutrients and phytochemicals were added to the diet with participants compliant for 3 to 18 months. 17 autistic traits were evaluated by the parents. An average of 82.8% improvement was reported (71% to 95% range). 7 common illnesses were monitored, Asthma was the most responsive and infections were improved. A more formal study with controls was deemed supported by this pilot study’s responses.
Preliminary Investigation into the Benefits of Glyconutrient Supplementation in Learning-Disabled Children.
A. Omelchuk, D. Wells. Proc. Fish. Inst. Med. Res. Vol.3,No. 2, March 2004.
14 Children in The Edmonton, Canada learning disability 5th grade class were evaluated in two phases, 90 days pre-observation and evaluation of 44 specific and 5 general functional disabilities followed by 90 days of glyconutrient and phytochemical intake in their diet. Assessments were a challenge. A combination of teacher, parent and a physician’s observations were combined. Marked improvements were offered in the general categories of behavior, language, cognition, sensory problems, motor coordination and academic performance. The teacher observed that all students were nicer in their interactions with one another, more: cooperative, appreciative, willing workers, task oriented and pleasurable to teach. Significant improvements were found in behavior& performance, as measured by standardized tests and assessment parameters.
