In the review we discussed recent studies of aloe vera gel to micRNA regulation and micRNA involved in communication between macrophages and natural killer cells. Furthermore possible prophylaxis of a dietary supplement during four months containing spray-dried powder of aloe vera gel, ginger, cloud ear mushroom etc., was demonstrated by questionnaire included 14 points to 56 volunteer subjects suffering for diabetes, hypertension, constipation, and so on. Aloe vera supplementation significantly decreased HbA1C level in diabetes-like old-aged volunteers, and improved body temperature in hie-sho-female, prevented cold fever, and maintained health in adult subjects.
