International Journal of Poultry Science , 2009,
Abstract: Two hundred and eighty commercial layer chicks belonging to single hatch were purchased from local hatchery, wing banded, weighed and randomly allotted into seven treatment groups with four replicates of ten chicks each. The chicks were reared in cages in a gable roofed, open sided house. All the chicks were provided with uniform floor, feeder and waterer space and were reared under standard management conditions throughout the experimental period. The experimental diet was formulated according to the standards prescribed in Bureau of Indian Standards (B.I.S., 1992). The treatment groups were T1-Control; T2-0.1% aloe vera; T3-0.1% turmeric; T4-0.1% probiotic; T5-0.1% aloe vera + 0.1% turmeric; T6-0.1% aloe vera + 0.1% probiotic and T7-0.1% turmeric + 0.1% probiotic powder. There was no significant difference in feed consumption. Hen housed egg production, hen day egg production and return over feed cost differ significantly after 40 weeks of age during the experimental period. The overall mean per cent broken eggs differ significantly (p<0.05) among treatment groups but no significant difference was observed in overall mean feed conversion ratio per dozen eggs during the experimental period.

Abstract: The present study attempts to analyze the effects of different levels of Aloe vera gel as an alternative to antibiotic, on performance and ileum morphology in broilers. Three hundred one-day old Ross 308 male broilers were used on a completely randomized design in 5 groups with 4 replicates, each consisting of 15 broilers. The groups included the control group (basal diet) and three groups with basal diet mixed with different levels of Aloe vera gel (1.5%, 2% and 2.5%). Finally, there was a group with basal diet plus 15 ppm antibiotic virginiamycin. The results obtained regarding performance of the broilers showed that Aloe vera gel groups brought about higher body weight gain and feed intake compared to the control group; however, no significant difference was observed in feed conversion ratio between the groups treated by Aloe vera gel and the control group (P>0.05). Although the antibiotic group showed better performance and heavier dressing percentage than the Aloe vera gel and the control groups, no significant difference was seen between the group treated by 2% Aloe vera gel and the antibiotic group regarding body weight gain, feed conversion ratio and dressing percentage (P>0.05). Among the Aloe vera gel groups, the 2% Aloe vera gel group had the largest villus height and the greatest villus height to crypt depth ratio compared to the antibiotic group (P<0.05). In general, 2% Aloe vera gel treatment may be recommended to achieve the best performance in broilers as an alternative to antibiotic growth promoter.

International Journal of Poultry Science , 2008,
Abstract: An experiment was conducted to study the inclusion of Aloe vera and Curcuma longa and its combinations on production performance, viz., weight gain, feed intake and feed conversion ratio, carcass characteristics and biochemical parameters for a period of six weeks with two hundred and eighty commercial, straight run day-old Vencobb broiler chicks. These chicks were randomly grouped into seven treatments with four replicates of ten chicks each. The treatment groups consisted of control (T1), 0.1 percent Aloe vera powder (T2), 0. 2 percent Aloe vera powder (T3), 0.1 percent Curcuma longa powder (T4), 0.2 percent Curcuma longa powder (T5) and 0.1 percent of Aloe vera and 0.1 percent of Curcuma longa powder (T6) and 0.2 percent of Aloe vera and 0.2 percent of Curcuma longa powder (T7) included in the broiler diet. The results revealed that there was no significant difference in body weight and body weight gain between treatment groups from first week to end of the experiment period except at first week (P < 0.01). Similarly, no significant difference was recorded in feed consumption and carcass yields, but in feed conversion ratio significant (P < 0.01) difference was recorded at first week of age. Livability was 100 percent in T2 and T3 treatment groups. The mean return over feed cost differs significantly (P < 0.01) between treatment groups up to six weeks of age, which was mainly due to difference in feed cost of Aloe vera and Curcuma longa inclusion in broiler diet.

Background: Aloe vera has been used by many civilizations throughout history due to the numerous properties attributed. Gastro oesophageal reflux disease is a common disorder with consequences for the patient’s health related quality of life. Aims: The purpose of this study was to assess the benefits of the Aloe vera in 80 patients with gastro oesophageal reflux. Methods: This is probably the first randomised and double-blind trail ever performed on this subject. The study included eight weeks of treatment with milk enriched with Aloe vera or placebo. Data of diet (frequency questionnaire), symptoms (gastrointestinal symptom rating scale) and quality of life (quality of life in reflux and disease) were obtained. Results: So far, there has been hardly any proof that Aloe vera decreases symptoms of reflux disease; on the contrary, a lower percentage of remission of pain is observed among the Aloe vera group. As long as its effectiveness has not been proven properly, the use of Aloe vera in reflux disease cannot be recommend. Conclusion: Aloe vera does not have a beneficial effect on reflux disease under the study conditions.
