Aloe Vera [Intestinal, Skin] is native to Africa but is grown today in the West Indies and the American Southwest. Aloe is a member of the lily family, although it resembles cactus. It has been used since ancient times, but only recently has it enjoyed a rediscovery and subsequent popularity explosion. Due to increased demand, many companies manufacture aloe vera. Unfortunately, many of these products lose much of the plants original benefits by overprocessing. Some claim to have removed the disagreeable taste of the plants juice, for example. But in doing so, they end up with a product that is only 1015 percent aloe vera, at best. Natures Sunshines aloe vera is processed in a special way to avoid the loss of essential vitamins, minerals and other active 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 Natures Sunshine collects. Because bacteria can thrive on this raw liquid, sodium benzoate is added as a preservative. Sodium benzoate is effective in very low quantities, and is therefore perhaps the best and safest method for preserving aloe vera juice. Aloe vera is a nutritional storehouse, containing vitamins B1, B2, B6, C, niacinamide, choline and 18 amino acids, in addition to many other nutritional substances. Aloe vera juice is an ingredient in many commercial topical creams, lotions and shampoos. Natures Sunshines aloe vera juice can also be taken internally with juice or water as an addition to the diet. For external use, Natures Sunshines aloe vera gel is the item of choice. The gel is created by adding a gelling agent, Irish moss extract, to the juice. Aloe vera gel spreads on quickly and penetrates deeply, leaving no stickiness. It comes in a handy flip-top container. If you enjoy the benefits of regular aloe vera juice, imagine the value of being able to get the whole leaf! 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.
