  • Be very careful when you select and use an aloe supplement! Aloe products differ by the type of aloe, part of the aloe leaf used, and amount of purification (See "What It Is"). What's more, found that many products don't contain what they claim (See "What CL Found")
  • Aloe vera gel vs. aloe juice? Aloe vera "gel," as well as aloe vera "juice" which has been purified (or "filtered"), are the safest forms of aloe and are often applied to the skin or consumed as a liquid in small amounts for potential therapeutic purposes (See "What It Does").
  • Are aloe very supplements safe? Whole aloe vera leaf (as well as Aloe ferox leaf) contains aloe "latex" 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 been found to contain benzene, a carcinogen.
