What is AMP?

AMP stands for Aloe Mucilaginous Polysaccharide.    The most straight forward description for AMP, is that it is thought to be the key ingredient from the Aloe Vera plant that is responsible for healing.   There is controversy between whether or not there is a "magic bullet" in aloe.   Some argue that all the ingredients are required to create the healing effects of aloe, and no one ingredient of the 200 or so that are present in the Aloe Vera plant is sufficient on its own.    Clearly there are others that believe that AMP is that single ingredient that is responsible for healing.

Isolating this component means that it can be delivered in more concentrated doses, ideally increasing the healing potency.   Aloe mucilaginous polysaccharides are long chain sugar molecules composed of individual mannose and glucose sugar molecules connected together.    It's these long chains of sugar molecules that interact with the immune system and coat the intestinal lining promoting health internally.

How does it work?
It's thought that the varying chain lengths contribute differently but work together to create a very potent healing effect.   For example, smaller polysaccharide chains are responsible for the anti-inflammatory effect of aloe.    While the medium to large length chains have anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial effects.   The largest chains have been described to have immune modulating properties, meaning that they directly affect the immune system and can have an impact on auto-immune disorders.     It is also this large molecule that regulates the production of a natural chemical, tumor necrosis factor which is involved in creating inflammation in the body, and thought to be a component of Crohn's Disease.

There is little research to confirm the effects of aloe mucilaginous polysaccharides, but many products indicating that it is working for some people.    The difficulty about these products is that it is expensive to manufacture and there is no regulation on the manufacturing process.    It's mostly a buy it and see if it works approach at this point, with each company claiming that it has the best patented manufacturing process that no other has.    Some companies even claiming that other products contain harmful ingredients.   With no regulation it's difficult to know what products to buy, and at an average around $150US for a months supply, it's not accessible for everyone.

Check the Amp Products section of this site.   There is a comparison of the existing AMP products.   Also the discussion forum should have information on the various products.
