When you are looking to buy Aloe Vera to boost your immune system or any other function you need to do a number of factors for you to buy the right one. Some of these things include:
Be cautious of the ingredients used in making the drink
High quality and natural Aloe Vera should be 100% but very few manufacturers are able to achieve it. Many of the manufacturers will state that the product is 100% aloe Vera but in the real sense, it isn’t. When you are buying the product, you shouldn’t pay a lot of attention at the front of the product-pay close attention to its back too. Before you make the purchase confirm that the first product at the back is aloe Vera.
If you are looking for 100% Aloe Vera, you should go for one that is sold in a refrigerated cabinet. If it isn’t in a cabinet, it definitely it isn’t 100%. There is nothing wrong with buying a product with a lower percentage of the active ingredient. You only need to ensure that the right amount is correctly indicated and priced appropriately.
Pay attention to the type of aloe Vera
There are many types of this product that you can buy. The most common types include: whole leaf, double strength, tablet, concentrated, filtered and many others. To get each type of the product, the plant has to be subjected to different processes. To buy a high-quality product, it’s highly recommended that you avoid a product made using unnecessary processes.
For example, you are discouraged from going for the whole leaf as the outer skin of the leaf is highly toxic. If the leaf has been filtered to remove the toxic outer parts, the product won’t be nutritious thus of no value to you. Experts also recommend that you avoid double strength aloe Vera as it is made from freezing and boiling. Boiling and freezing results to loss of the nutritional value of the product.
Go for a product certified by the international aloe science council
The International Aloe Science Council (IASC) regulates all the aloe Vera drinks in the market. Its role is to ensure that the drink has all the ingredients mentioned in the list. It’s good to note that not all products bearing the seal have been approved by the council. To ensure that you are buying a high-quality product, always ensure that you check the council’s website for a list of the manufacturers that have been approved to sell the product. As rule of thumb avoid a product being sold by an unregistered company.
Pay attention to the color of the drink
If you can, take a look at the color of the drink you are going to buy. If possible, even taste it. Studies show that most of the drinks on the market have extremely high amounts of water. If the product you are planning to buy looks and tastes like water you should stay away from it. A good quality drink should be yellow in color and have a strong taste.
