Liquid Aloe Vera Leaf Juice as it comes from the Aloe plant is approximately 98.5% water and 1.5% solids. These solids contain all of the active ingredients. By lyophilization, or freeze-drying, we remove the naturally occurring water leaving only the solids. We then encapsulate the solids at a rate of 450 mgs per capsule which is the equivalent of 2 fluid ounces of our Pharm-Aloe® 99.7% Aloe Vera Leaf Juice. If for any reason, such as taste, traveling, convenience; etc., you are unable to use our liquid Aloe Vera Juice, you now have a product that is efficacious, palatable, and easy to use.
