Pretty much everybody knows that the nutrients in aloe vera are enormously beneficial to health. Most people know of aloe vera juice or aloe vera gel, but fewer people know the benefits of aloe vera capsules. Not many people know that world-renown aloe vera expert Consultant Gastroenterologist Dr. Ivan E. Danhof MD PhD tested aloe vera in his Texas laboratory for the majority of aloe vera producers in the world. He saw the good, the bad and the ugly of aloe vera supplement products. Between his research, he lectured and in one of his lectures he set out what good aloe vera should be like.

Both aloe vera juice and aloe vera capsules can meet those standards but, and here’s our point, the benefits of aloe vera capsules is that it allows Aloeride to use special processing that was co-designed by Dr. Danhof himself. Try doing it better than the oracle! You can’t really, can you? Growing the most nutrient-dense aloe vera species, in a certified organic manner, harvesting and processing it swiftly to capture the fullest compliment of nutrients… to deliver a pure, high concentrate powder in vegetarian capsules.

Just as Lycopene is more bioavailable from tomato paste than it is from fresh tomatoes, aloe vera capsules can deliver more aloe vera nutrients per serving than aloe vera juice can. I use ‘can’ advisedly because everything depends on the norms and ethics of the manufacturer. Not all aloe vera capsules are made equal, caveat emptor, buyer beware! This is equally true for aloe vera juice by the way.

Aloeride aloe vera powder increased to 426mgIn 2010 we did a consumer satisfaction survey to find out how people used Aloeride aloe vera capsules. Feedback suggested that an increase in the amount of organic aloe vera powder per capsule would be appreciated. Many of those surveyed used Aloeride to cope with significant digestive health issues, and took multiple capsules a day to good effect. We changed from 180mg Aloeride aloe vera capsules to 426mg in a vegetarian capsule of a size that would still work for young children. Our customers were very pleased, some pleasantly surprised, that this 2.37x increase in powder quantity did not result in a 2.37x price increase. Year on year since 2004 – and perhaps unsurprisingly so – the six pack has been our best seller, 20% loyalty discount plus freepost worldwide (buy 5 get 1 free plus free worldwide postage).

Look at Product 4f in the below table… this is sold for human consumption. See how this compares with our Aloeride aloe vera (note that the aloeride that goes into equine sachets is exactly the same quality as what goes into the vegetarian capsules).
With respect, but you don't know the difference between aloe vera products/labels until you do laboratory tests.

When aloe vera is only present on the label.

We recommend that you take Aloeride aloe vera capsules with ample of water. Capsules need a hydration period in order to pull water into the matrix to allow disintegration to begin. Capsules completely dissolve within 15 minutes (in water at 37° C body temperature), which is similar to the dissolution time of ordinary tablets. The benefits of aloe vera capsules does not manifest immediately but does this matter? Not according to world authority on aloe vera Consultant Gastroenterologist Dr. Ivan Danhof MD PhD. Gastrointestinal Transit times in healthy humans following ingestion of solid, mixed foods: 50% of stomach contents empties in 2.5 to 3 hours, total emptying of the stomach in 4 to 5 hours. That puts those 15 minutes in context. Admittedly there are instances when you need the benefits of aloe vera to manifest quicker, only in such cases do you take the powder out of the conisnap vegicapsule and mix it with water.

The benefits of aloe vera capsules certification

There are only two incidences when you may want to take Aloeride Extra Strong ‘as a liquid’. 1st: For tissue issues in between your lips and the sphyncter at the top of your stomach. To help your gums for instance, open the conisnap vegicapsule and empty powder content onto a small spoon. Put the powder in your mouth, take a swig of water and swirl the mixture ’round and ’round. With contact time of the essence, the longer you swirl, the better. Then swallow the mixture, do not spit out like you do with a mouthwash! 2nd: For a topical application such as a facial mask.
