While researching the aloe vera plant in Mexico and Texas, we noticed that the roadrunner bird consistently ran to a special variety of aloe plant when it needed a drink. We then concentrated on this plant to produce George's "Always Active" Aloe. Remember, not all aloe vera plants are the same. We selected one particular variety of Aloe Barbadensis Miller. We process the aloe by a unique trade secret method that selectively removes constituents which we feel are not desirable (irritants and laxative components). No preservatives, chemicals and/or water have been added.
Ingredients: 100% fractionally distilled Aloe Barbadensis Miller
Usage: For optimum results, drink aloe vera juice (2 ounces) twice daily.

George's Aloe Vera vs. Other Brands
Why isn't George's Aloe Vera juice drink thick and greenish in color? Why doesn't it have that bitter taste most other Aloe Vera products have?
The thick greenish substance just beneath the rind in the latex layer of the plant is where the aloins and anthraqinones are located. These substances are irritants and when ingested can cause cramping and diarrhea and in some cases nausea. George's Aloe is a refined product. We remove the antagonistic compounds that cause the bitter taste and irritation to the GI tract.
For several years we examined various species of aloe vera whereby separating the chemical components of the aloe vera leaf. We singled out a variety of the Barbadensis Miller as the species with the most unique beneficial qualities. We continued to study the effects of aloe as a food supplement, we found the digestive tract seemed to be the most important factor, other than our parents genes and chromosomes in determining our health and well being. A newborn's food conversion efficiency approaches 100%. However, as we mature our digestive membrane system loses its efficiency and our body thus makes changes to compensate. The aches, pains and malfunctions of the body can result from changes in the digestive process and many of which may have occurred over a number of years.*
Dozens of maladies can be derived from what your digestive system has produced. We hypothesize that our "Always Active®" Aloe actually cleanses the digestive membranes, thus causing them to function in a fashion similar to that of your infant days. Consequently, the body makes adjustments that if combined with a daily regimen, can result in better health. We urge daily consumption of our "Always Active®" Aloe and are convinced that your body will note your use by returning to its more efficient method of operating.*
Changes are slow, so you may not notice a significant improvement for 2 to 3 weeks, and may not notice any improvement unless you drink aloe vera juice daily. For optimum aloe vera juice benefits, we recommend drinking 2 ounces, twice daily of our "Always Active®" Aloe. Note: In some of the gallon jugs you will find a small amount of the Aloe Vera Pulp settled at the bottom. This is part of the plant and should be regarded as a normal part of the product

Perhaps you've tried consuming aloe vera before, and found it caused diarrhea, or irritated your gut. This is likely because the brand of aloe you consumed contained either preservatives, or the irritating or laxative components of the aloe leaf had not been removed.
In our experience, Aloe vera juice must have no preservatives (it should taste pretty much like water) and have all the irritating and laxative components completely removed to be safe for people with IBD.
It is useful for mild heartburn, healing ulceration, stopping mild bleeding, and helping to restore the intestinal wall and lining. For years I also took 1/4 cup daily as maintenance. Drink on an empty stomach. You can combine aloe vera with other gut mucosal healing products, but take 2 hours away from probiotics.
