The manner and the place of manufacturing
aloe vera products is extremely important! The gel of the
Aloe plant, when exposed to oxygen for a prolonged time
(about four hours) oxidizes - rendering it worthless. The
benefits from aloe vera products are rendered useless unless
from harvesting to manufacturing the finished product,
the entire process has
been completed within four hours.
If it takes longer then the product might not have any nutritional
value. Purchase aloe vera products manufactured by companies
that grow the plant themselves and manufacture at the site
and not from those who buy it in bulk.
