Equine Aloe Vera Gel Juice
We are so excited to be one of the only companies in North America carrying pure Aloe Vera Gel juice for horses!
Aloe Vera has been used for gastric health with great success in horses for many years. Recently a study gave aloe vera powder to horses with a grade 2 or greater gastric lesion confirmed with a gastric scope. 56% of horses showed improvement after 28 days of supplementation, and another 17% showed healed lesions (Franklin et al, 2017)!
Additionally, there is abundant anecdotal evidence by equine and veterinary professionals that aloe gel powder can be used to effectively soothe and heal inflammation and irritation in the gastrointestinal tract caused by a myriad of factors. TriSana Nutrition Aloe Vera powder is the perfect natural remedy for dealing with a large range of stress induced internal disorders, as well some skin problems and joint issues.
What is Aloe Vera Gel juice? Good question - this product is a result of only the gel fillet part of the aloe vera plant. The constituents have been purified by removing the inner fillet of the aloe leaf from the pulp, fiber, and the aloe latex (sometimes also called juice, which is why it's important to make this distinction!). An important distinction to be made here is that this is just the aloe fillet of the aloe vera plant, and has been harvested independently of the aloe latex. This not only means that the aloe powder has a more mild taste (great for those picky eaters!), but it also has a larger safety margin. The latex has severe laxative properties and can cause serious gastric health complications if used too often. When ingesting aloe, the gel is the safest part of the plant, which is why we have made sure our human grade aloe vera gel juice ONLY contains the gel fragment. This results in a pure product, without any additional additives or preservatives needed.
