These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. Aloe Life does not intend to diagnose or treat disease.
It is a possibility that the label of the Aloe Vera product may indicate what is in the bottle, but that is not always the case with aloe vera. There is special wording that consumers must be aware of, what does it all mean anyway?
Definitions of Aloe Vera Products:
- Aloe Vera Juice
An ingestible product made from the filet (inner gel) of the Aloe Vera Leaf. A product may state on the label that it is 99.7% pure, which can be a truthful statement, yet the actual amount of Aloe Vera Juice in the container can be much less, as little as 5% Aloe Vera Juice and 95% added water
- Aloe Vera Gel
An ingestible product made from the filet (inner gel) of the Aloe Vera Leaf, to which a food grade thickening agent has been added. Examples: Alginate, Xanthan Gum, Agar-Agar, Carrageenan (Moss). Please Note: During processing the natural Aloe Gel becomes a liquid juice and any product labeled as an Aloe Vera Gel (thick consistency), is not the naturally occuring gel present in the unprocessed Aloe Leaf.
- Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Juice
An ingestible product made from the Whole Leaf of the Aloe Vera plant. The Whole Leaf includes the skin, rind and the inner gel. It contains a higher percentage of active ingredients.
- Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Juice Concentrate
An ingestible product made from the Whole Leaf of the Aloe Vera plant, with a percentage of the naturally occuring water (Aloe Vera is a succulent and is 99% water) removed. The result is a product providing the Highest Concentration of Active Ingredients!
- 200:1 - 400:1 Labeled Aloe Products
An ingestible product made from Hydrated and Irradiated Aloe Powder and Water. The actual product is not a 200:1 or 400:1 strength Aloe. The aloe starts as a dry powdered concentration which is reconstituted at a ratio of 1 part Aloe powder and 199 parts added water!!!!! Please note that within the established Aloe industry, a 400:1 does not exist.
- Fractionally Distilled Aloe Vera
This ingestible product describes a process by which Aloe Vera liquid is distilled to produce a high sulfur water. It contains no enzymes, amino acids, other minerals or polysaccarides.
Labeling about the Yellow Sap or Anthraquinone Complex
- Most Aloe Vera products do not contain the yellow Sap or Anthraquinone Complex. Often stated on the label as aloin and aloe emodin removed. Even if a product is whole leaf it does not mean that the yellow sap is included in the finished product.
- Aloe Life's entire line of Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Juice products contain the highest level of yellow sap or anthraquinone complex available. The Aloe Life Whole Leaf Juice concentrate product states on the label that it contains allowable amounts of the valuable anthraquinone complex: Aloin and Aloe Emodin 4 ppm. You can see the Anthraquinone Complex in the product if it is deep golden yellow in color!
