Aloe Vera [Intestinal, Skin] is a nutritional storehouse, naturally containing several vitamins plus 18 amino acids, in addition to many other dietary factors. It soothes the skin and the tissues lining the digestive tract. It contains many biologically active compounds that support the digestion and absorption of food and nourish the intestinal system.
Many companies manufacture aloe vera, but most products on the market have lost much of the plant’s original benefits due to over-processing. Beware of aloe vera juice that claims to have no disagreeable taste. Removing this taste can leave 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.
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, aloe is known for its hydrating and moisturizing properties. Shake well before use and refrigerate after opening.
For external use, try Aloe Vera Gel. The gel is created by adding a gelling agent, Irish moss extract, to the juice. Aloe vera gel spreads on quickly and moisturizes, leaving no stickiness. Apply Aloe Vera Gel to the skin as desired for its moisturizing and toning properties.
For best results, drink 2–6 oz. Aloe Vera Juice daily as is or mixed with water or juice. Or, drink 1 oz. Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Juice mixed with 8 oz. of water or juice 4 times daily.
Aloe Vera, Freeze Dried provides the same benefits as liquid Aloe Vera Juice but in capsulated form. Freeze-drying removes water content while maintaining the full botanical value of Aloe Vera. Each capsule contains 150 mg freeze-dried aloe vera and is equivalent to 1 fluid ounce of 100% Aloe Vera juice. Take 1 or 2 capsules with a meal three times daily.
