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 plants 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.
