Q: Why do Physicians tell parents that Aloe Vera is dangerous for children to drink?
A: Their reference is to laxative Aloe Vera products. Properly processed Aloe Vera juices like Simply Aloe are 100% safe and are not formulated to act as laxatives but do provide gentle help moving the bowels. If diarrhea occurs cut back on the amount of juice consumed.

Q: What is the potency of the Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Concentrate?
A: We are the highest in polysaccharides, guaranteeing no less than 13,000 mgs of MPS per quart on each label of Simply Aloe™ and AloeMin™, and 200 mgs per capsule on AloeCaps™. No other company does this. Other companies cannot state the MPS content because they cannot guarantee the quantity. To know if an Aloe vera product is going to be beneficial, you must know the MPS content.

Q: Why is Simply Aloe™ concentrated?
A: Simply Natural Products wanted to bring to market the most affordable product with the most benefit. To accomplish this we remove natural occurring water from the leaf. This enables Simply Aloe to concentrate without high heat. Natural Aloe Vera has a succulent with 99% of the juice being water and 1% containing the 200 beneficial solids or active ingredients. Therefore, by concentrating it costs the consumer less money for more value.

Q: Simply Aloe™ contains vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, polysaccharides and more. Do we need to take our supplements along with the juice?
A: Yes. Simply Aloe does contain hundreds of nutrients yet they do not replace the need for Multi-vitamin supplements. What has been presented in some Research is that when Aloe Vera juice is taken with other nutrients the absorption increases even up to ten times greater. So it is possible to not only optimize your own digestion of foods yet also any other vitamins or herbs you may take! A recent study conducted at the University of Pennsylvania in 2002 showed 300% better absorption of Vitamins C & E when taken with Aloe Vera Juice.

Q: Even though Simply Aloe™ Juice Concentrate is very strong, AloeMin™ contains trace minerals. Why are Trace Minerals so important?
A: Trace minerals are necessary for many metabolic actions within our bodies. Scientists have only just begun to understand the value the trace minerals perform in keeping human beings healthy. Zinc, selenium and molybdenum are just a few of these very important trace minerals that support immune function and energy within the cell. Most people do not eat enough vegetables and whole grains to receive enough minerals from their diets to optimize their health. At no extra cost to the consumer, AloeMin™ has trace minerals to give extra health support without toxicity. Minerals supply electrolyte fuel during the hot weather. Aloe Life helps maintain energy through even the most humid of days!

Q: Is it safe to give Aloe Vera juice for dogs? 
A: Aloe is 100% safe to give to pets. Just start with 1 oz. and increase giving it in increments throughout the day.  If diarrhea occurs, cut back. Dogs need about 1 oz. per 10 lbs of body weight to increase immune function. A little goes a long way. The plant is NOT toxic. If people get diarrhea they also need to just cut the amount consumed down. It is like Vitamin C. Vitamin C will cause loose stool if you consume too much at one time. It is, however, NOT toxic.

Aloe Vera has contributed my good health in so many ways. I chose to drink AloeMin to better my digestive system and boost my immune strength. I have been living with bowel discomfort and bloating for as long as I can remember. Digestive abnormalities can often be affected by the foods we eat, leading us to a limited or poor diet. I started drinking AloeMin 5 years ago. I am 29 years old now and I am still drinking AloeMin and enjoying the continuous benefits from it. If you think about it, our health is reflected by what we put in our bodies. For most of my life I did not maintain a nutritional diet, which I believe led to my digestive system not functioning properly. Without adequate performance from my digestive system, my body was not getting the nutrition it needed to function well. Now with a proper nutritional diet and drinking AloeMin daily, I no longer suffer from bloating, discomfort, or constipation. My body has been able to deliver nutrients efficiently with the help of Aloe Vera’s amazing benefits.

My personal view is that Aloe has restored balance to my digestive system. In other words, healing it. I believe it so definitely that I have chosen to give it to my son as well. Did you ever think Aloe Vera could benefit children too? It works for me, and I have seen it work for him. Normal suggested amount for adults is 2 ounces daily. I give him 1 ounce daily. When he is sick I give him 1 ounce 2-3 times daily for about 7-10 days. The Aloe is like adding more soldiers to the immune system’s battle against whatever illness he is experiencing. (My trick is to mix the AloeMin in some orange juice, kids don’t normally desire to intake medicine of any kind.) My son is now 3 years old, and I am excited to say that I have never had to give him an antibiotic in his life so far. When he does get sick, he is well much quicker than other effected children. The Aloe has helped him develop a strong immune system, and has contributed to proper distribution of nutrients throughout his ever growing body.

I feel healthy, and my son is healthy because we have AloeMin included in our daily routine.

There are several mechanisms which contribute to the immunological protection of our human bodies. Among these mechanisms the ingestion of bacteria and other potentially harmful agents by certain white blood cells (a process termed phagocytosis) and the formation of antibodies, (formed by another group of white cells, the beta-lymphocytes) is probably the most important. Scientific evidence suggests that Aloe Vera contains substances which are active both in stimulating phagocytosis as well as stimulating the formation of antibodies.

The latter system, the complement system, consists of a series of proteins which require activation.  When activated these proteins interact sequentially – a cascade phenomenon – and form circular, doughnut-shaped proteins, which are inserted into the surface membranes of bacteria, literally causing “holes” which permit the interior of the bacterium to become exposed to the environment, causing the death of the organism. Normally this complement system is stimulated by the presence of polysaccharides on the surface of the invading organism. Studies have shown that the polysaccharides (the healing factor) of Aloe can perform this function.
