The name Aloe/200x™ refers to the fact that it takes 200 pounds of the aloe vera inner gel fillets to make one pound of this nourishing aloe extract. This concentrated aloe is made with the intent to retain as much of the plant’s natural makeup as possible. This is done by never filtering the product, thus preserving the natural components, and by never letting the product reach a temperature over 99° Fahrenheit. This low heat dehydration system ensures that the long polysaccharide chains remain intact, as they are found in nature. The longer the polysaccharide chain, the more effective it is at supporting immune function.
