Desert Harvest has spent over 25 years supporting the Interstitial Cystitis / Bladder Pain Syndrome (IC/BPS) community with the highest quality Super-Strength Aloe Vera.


They have done the research and surveyed over 20,000 IC/BPS customers to know what works for them, in what dosage and how long it takes to feel the positive effects.

Most other supplement companies know little to nothing about IC/BPS, why and how aloe vera works, nor is their product dosage specific to what the IC/BPS customer needs. 

We are proud to partner with Desert Harvest and provide these unique and thoughtfully formulated supplements to our customers. 


100% Organically Grown & Non-GMO.

Desert Harvest's patented process ensures the highest quality and potency of polysaccharides, glycoproteins, amino acids, vitamins and enzymes in each capsule. By removing the anthraquinones, the caustic components in the aloe plant that cause diarrhea, Super-Strength Aloe Vera supplements are gentle and highly effective for those with pelvic pain, bladder pain and inflammation associated with Interstitial Cystitis (IC), Bladder Pain Syndrome (BPS), Overactive Bladder (OAB) and additional related conditions.


Desert Harvest Probiotic contains a unique strain called Bifidobacterium infantis that when taken daily (1 capsule per day) fortifies the digestive system to defend against imbalance that can contribute to gas, bloating, abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, urgency, and other gastrointestinal conditions including ulcerative colitis (UC), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), leaky gut, constipation and bowel movement irregularity.


Vitamin C supports immune function, nerves, collagen production, blood vessel integrity and free-radical defense. Each capsule includes 400 mg Vitamin C buffered with 40 mg of calcium ascorbate and Super-Strength Aloe Vera for better nutrient absorption. Desert Harvest Buffered Vitamin C is Interstitial Cystitis (IC) and Bladder Pain Syndrome (BPS) friendly; easy on the stomach, urinary tract and bladder.


Desert Harvest Low Acid Multi-Vitamin is a low acid, pH neutral proprietary supplement that is IC/PBS, bladder and stomach friendly. Containing over 25 essential vitamins and minerals, they included only non-irritating sources ideal for Interstitial Cystitis / Painful Bladder Syndrome, prostatitis, bladder and stomach pain sufferers. One capsule per day supplies essential vitamins and nutrients that are non-acidic and won’t aggravate sensitive conditions. Includes the methylated form of B12 so it's safe for people who have a MTHFR gene mutation. 


Mast cells have been found to be raised in those suffering with IC. As a result, IC bladders also contain about double as much histamine as a healthy bladder. Histamine plays a role in inflammation. Quercetin has been shown to inhibit the release of histamines and other immune mediators which are thought to play a part in some IC/BPS and nonbacterial prostatitis symptoms including nocturia, daytime frequency, pain, burning, pressure, and pain with sex, especially in those with a history of allergies, migraines and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Quercetin also decreases production of the COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes that cause systemic inflammation. It has been shown in studies to be an anti-inflammatory agent.


Studies have shown that the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin provide the building blocks for the development of healthy cartilage and connective tissue and may provide the same anti-inflammatory action as ibuprofen with associated relief for Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis (UC), and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).


The GAG layer of the bladder is primarily made up of glycosaminoglycans like chondroitin and glucosamine. It is theorized that the GAG layer of the bladder is “leaky” in people with IC/PBS and nonbacterial prostatitis. If that is the case, then supplementing your diet with glucosamine and chondroitin might replace the lost protective molecules in your bladder. Several food supplements containing these nutrients have been studied in IC/PBS patients with positive results.


Desert Harvest Glucosamine/Chondroitin is IC-friendly and shellfish-free (non-vegan).
