is native to Africa, but is grown today in the West Indies and the American Southwest. Aloe is a member of the lily family, although in appearance it resembles cactus. It has been used since ancient times, but only recently has it enjoyed a rediscovery and subsequent popularity explosion. Due to its increase in popularity many companies manufacture aloe vera; unfortunately, many of these products in overprocessing lose much of the plant's original benefits. Some claim to have removed the disagreeable taste of the plant's juice, for example, but in doing so end up with a product that is only 10 to 15% aloe vera, at best.

Nature's Sunshine's aloe vera is processed in a special way to avoid the loss of essential vitamins, minerals and other active constituents. The leaf is filleted; then the green outer portion which contains aloin is removed, leaving the gel that remains in the leaf. The gel remains thick when the leaf is first cut. but after a few minutes an enzymatic reaction causes it to become liquid and freely run out. It is this 100% pure gel that Nature's Sunshine collects. Because bacteria could thrive on this raw gel, ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and sodium benzoate are added as preservatives. Sodium benzoate is effective in very low quantities, and is therefore perhaps the best and safest method for preserving aloe vera juice. Aloe vera is a nutritional storehouse, containing vitamins B1, B2, B6 C, niacinamide, choline, and 18 amino acids, in addition to many other nutritional substances.

Aloe vera juice is an ingredient in many commercial topical creams, lotions and shampoos. Nature's Sunshine's aloe vera juice can also be taken internally with juice or water as an addition to the diet. For external use, Nature's Sunshine's aloe vera gel is the item of choice. The gel is created by adding a gelling agent, Irish moss extract, to the juice. Aloe vera gel spreads on quickly and penetrates deeply, leaving no stickiness. It comes in a handy flip-top container.

If you enjoy the benefits of regular aloe vera juice, imagine the value of being able to get the whole leaf! NSP Whole Leaf Aloe Vera provides a higher level of mucopolysaccharides than regular filleted aloe vera.

Only the intense cleansing components have been removed, leaving a high level of mucopolysaccharides (7,000 mg per liter). Used externally, it is known for its hydrating and moisturizing properties. Drink 1 ounce of this concentrate in 8 ounces of water when using as an internal dietary supplement.

  Sunshine Brite Toothpaste

allows you to practice good oral hygiene without subjecting your teeth and gums to potentially harmful chemicals. To whiten teeth and help combat plaque, Sunshine Brite combines calcium carbonate (a natural chalk powder), sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and sea salt. The toothpaste's desired consistency is achieved with pure vegetable glycerin and soft water. A mild foaming agent aids cleansing.

Sunshine Brite is rich in calcium, from calcium carbonate and carrot powder. Natural mint flavors freshen the mouth and breath. Finally, the addition of herb-derived myrrh adds just the right amount of astringency for maximum oral health.
