Liquid Aloe Vera Leaf Juice as it comes from the Aloe plant is approximately 98.5% water and 1.5% solids. These solids contain all of the active ingredients. By lyophilization, or freeze-drying, we remove the naturally occurring water leaving only the solids. We then encapsulate the solids at a rate of 450 mgs per capsule which is the equivalent of 2 fluid ounces of our Pharm-Aloe® 99.7% Aloe Vera Leaf Juice. If for any reason, such as taste, traveling, convenience; etc., you are unable to use our liquid Aloe Vera Juice, you now have a product that is efficacious, palatable, and easy to use. This product is not a laxative; the rind, latex, and anthraquinones, including aloin and aloe emodin, have been removed to less than 1 part per million.
Why Aloe Vera "Leaf" Juice? Pharm-Aloe® Aloe Vera Leaf Juice has 3-6 times more potency than Aloe Vera "Fillet" or "Inner" Leaf Juice. This is due to the fact that the greatest concentration of active ingredients is where the rind of the Aloe Vera leaf interfaces with the inner gel of the leaf. If, in processing, only the inner gel is removed from the leaf and the rind discarded, you lose 300% - 600% of the active ingredients.
