Aloe Vera [Intestinal, Skin] is a nutritional
storehouse, containing vitamins B1, B2, B6, C, niacinamide, choline and 18 amino
acids, in addition to many other nutritional substances. It nutritionally
benefits the intestinal system. Many companies manufacture aloe vera, but many
products on the market have lost much of the plant’s original benefits due to
Beware of aloe vera juice that claims to have no
disagreeable taste. Removing this leaves you with a product that is only 10-15
percent aloe vera, at best. NSP aloe vera is processed in a special way to avoid
the loss of essential vitamins, minerals and other constituents. The leaf is
filleted; then the green outer portion that contains aloin is removed, leaving
the gel that remains in the leaf. The gel remains thick when the leaf is first
cut, but after a few minutes, an enzymatic reaction causes it to become liquid
and freely run out. It is this 100 percent pure liquid that NSP collects. To
prevent bacterial contamination, we add sodium benzoate as a preservative.
Sodium benzoate is effective in very small quantities, and it properly and
safely preserves aloe vera juice. Nature’s Sunshine’s Aloe Vera Juice can
also be taken internally with juice or water. NSP Whole Leaf Aloe Vera provides
a higher level of mucopolysaccharides than regular filleted aloe vera. Only the
intense cleansing components have been removed, leaving a high level of
mucopolysaccharides (7,000 mg per liter). Used externally, it is known for its
hydrating and moisturizing properties. Shake well before use and refrigerate
after opening. For external use, try Aloe Vera Gel.
