There are two parts extracted from Aloe VeraGelandLatex.Gel shouldn't cause any problems, but you do need to be careful with Latex. Most "juices" have some amount of latex in them and they usually are not analyzed for that, but a rough estimate can be done based on how bitter the preparation is. The worse it tastes the higher the amount of the bitter latex it has in it.Latex is a laxative. A stimulatory laxative, and like any other stimulatory laxative you can overdo it and become dependant on it (the colon loses the ability to do its thing without it and it can be very hard to retrain the colon to start functioning on its own again).Some of the claims for aloe are probably hype, seeing as I've seen it cures every disease known to man.Some people do seem to get some benefit from it.K.
