  • What is the best form of aloe? Aloe vera "gel" and aloe vera "juice" that has been purified (or "filtered") are the safest forms of aloe and should contain the highest concentrations of acemannan — the gel-like substance in aloe. This can be applied to the skin or consumed as a liquid in small amounts for potential therapeutic purposes (see "What It Does")
  • What form of aloe can be dangerous? Whole aloe vera leaf (as well as Aloe ferox leaf) contains aloe "latex" (known as aloins) which, if consumed, can cause a significant laxative effect (See "What It Does"). These compounds have also been shown to cause cancer in some animals (See "Concerns and Cautions"). The FDA has banned the sale of all aloe products as over-the-counter (OTC) medicine, although they remain legal as dietary supplements. Also be aware that some aloe gels and sprays have also been found to contain benzene, a carcinogen.
  • Which are the best aloe gels and juices? has found that many also products don't contain their expected amounts of key aloe compounds (see "What CL Found"). See our Top Picks among drinkable aloe, topical aloe, and aloe capsules based on our tests and comparisons.
