Ultimate Aloe Juice contains whole leaf aloe vera. Aloe Vera is rich in polysaccharides, glycoproteins, urea nitrogen, creatine, potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, iron, choline, sodium, alkaline phosphates, SGO transaminase, SGP transaminase, lactic dehydrogenase, amylase, lipase, mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids, amino acids, saponins, sterols and biogenic stimulators content.
The Aloe Vera plant is classified as a vegetable and like all plant products the juice must be preserved or it will rapidly decompose when the leaves are processed. Potassium sorbate (from Mountain Ash trees) and sodium benzoate (from benzoin gum) are used in minute quantities as preservatives, and ascorbic and citric acid are used to stabilize and balance pH levels. Ultimate Aloe is made from 100 percent Aloe Vera through a unique whole leaf process, using only certified leaves. This method carefully removes the unnecessary aloin and aloe-emodin while still maintaining high levels of modified Aloe polysaccharides, which have been shown to contribute too many health benefits. The International Aloe Science Council has certified the Aloe content and purity in this product.
Chemical analysis shows that Aloe Vera contains vitamins, minerals, triglycerides, carbohydrates, amino acids, enzymes and water. The vitamins found in Aloe include B1, B2, B3 and B12, choline, folic acid, vitamin C and beta-carotene (a precursor to Vitamin A), which are all vital to optimal health and the formation of certain key enzymes.
Aloe has been shown to contain numerous essential minerals needed for good nutrition. Minerals found in Aloe include calcium, magnesium, potassium, chloride, iron, zinc, manganese, copper, chromium, sulfur, aluminum, strontium, boron, silicon, lithium, phosphorus, nickel and sodium. All these minerals are vital in the growth process and essential for the function of all body systems.
Aloe Vera also contains necessary triglycerides including fats, oil and waxes. They carry the fat-soluble vitamins, supply the fatty acids essential for growth and general health of all body tissue and help supply energy. Carbohydrates are also present in Aloe Vera to assist in digestion, to absorb the nutrients from foods and supply energy for muscular exertion. They also control protein breakdown, the distribution of sodium, potassium, chloride and water, for electrolyte balance. Identified carbohydrates include glucose, mannose and acemannan.
The complete list of amino acids known to exist in Aloe include lysine, histidine, arginine, aspartic acid, asparagine, threonine, serine, glutamine, hydroproline, proline, glycine, alanine, cystine, valine, methionine, isoleucine, leucine, tyrosine, glutamic acid and phenylalanine.
Aloe Vera also contains critical enzymes that trigger the chemical reaction of vitamins, minerals and hormones for normal functioning of the body. Enzymes also promote digestive health. Enzymes present in Aloe include: alkaline phosphates, SGO transaminase, SGP transaminase, lactic dehydrogenase, amylase, lipase, oxidase, peroxidase, catalase, bradykinase, gamma transaminase, carboxypeptidase and cellulase. Aloe contains 6 or more biogenic agents to stimulate new cell growth. They include cinnaminic and salicylic acids.
Water is the major component of Aloe Vera gel (the clear inner part of the leaf). When the fiber or pulp is removed from the gel, what remains is approximately 99 percent water. Water is the universal solvent and is responsible for the transfer of nutrients throughout the body.
The Aloe Vera Juice provided in Market America's potent formula is a powerhouse of naturally occurring nutrition, which promotes overall health. It’s also a wonderful way to maintain the integrity of the immune and digestive systems.
