What is Aloe vera?
Aloe vera is known for being beneficial for the skin, stomach, lymph, and digestive health.
It also known for its antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, immune boosting and cell-protective properties.
It's great for making other nutrients and supplements more bioavailable to the body.
It’s commonly used to help maintain a healthy digestive system and has been slowly making its way to being a common recommendation of professionals to aid in healing gastric ulcers and supporting the proper pH balance of the hindgut.
Pharm Aloe for horses?
It supports their GI health, immune system, aids in the balancing of stomach pH, supports normal detoxification and normal inflammatory response processes and reinforces cellular communication. When used topically it supports the healing of skin tissue, helps itching and soothes insect bites.
If your horse has chronic digestive concerns or has a high-stress level due to performance and travel, this natural support could make a positive difference when combined with a clean supplement ration without additives, fillers, and synthetics.

Pharm Aloe for people?
It wasn’t until the middle of the 20th century that Aloe Vera began to be grown commercially in the U.S., primarily in South Texas. In a relatively short period of time, Aloe Vera has become the number one herb of preference for both external and internal uses. It seems to be a paradox that at a time of so many breakthroughs in science and medicine more and more people are seeking natural help for many of their health problems.
Today, as we look for more natural methods of treatments, researchers are beginning to verify that the ancients were justified in their use of Aloe Vera. They have shown that the polysaccharides and other active ingredients that are present in Aloe Vera, do in fact have beneficial properties.
Pharm Aloe for dogs?
Helps support a strong immune system, support a healthy digestive system, detoxification and joint function. When my dogs have diarrhea, are lethargic, or injured themselves I up the maintenance dose during that time period.
How much is to much?
Aloin is a natural chemical found in the skin of the Aloe Vera plant that has laxative effects when orally consumed by humans. Not to be confused with Acemannan (a beneficial compound in Aloe Vera). HOWEVER with pharm aloe this part is removed! No concern for diuretic effects.
Acemannan is the primary active ingredient in Aloe Vera. Acemannan is a polysaccharide that has been shown to have immunostimulant, antiviral, antineoplastic, and gastrointestinal properties.
What is the difference between Aloe Vera Leaf and Aloe Vera Fillet?
Research has shown that the greatest concentration of active ingredients in Aloe Vera is where the rind interfaces with the inner gel. Prior to this finding the inner gel was removed discarding the rest of the leaf. This process is known today as Aloe Vera "Inner Leaf" or "Fillet". Pharm-Aloe Aloe Vera is made by a process that utilizes the entire leaf. This process is known as Aloe Vera "Leaf".
Pharm-Aloe Aloe Vera Juice has 3 to 6 times more potency than Aloe Vera Fillet Juice. We utilize the entire leaf by grinding the leaves into a puree and then remove the rind, anthraquinones, aloin, and aloe emodin, leaving a clear Aloe Vera Juice. Aloe Vera Fillet Juice averages 1,500 mg/L MPS while Aloe Vera Juice averages 7,000 mg/L MPS.
