Full Answer

Aloe vera is the common name of a species of the plant genus Aloe. There are more than 400 known species of aloe. Aloe vera is also referred to as aloe barbadensis and may be referred to as such on many product labels. The International Aloe Science Council asserts that only products that contain acemannan, a naturally occurring polysaccharide found in aloe vera, should be labeled as aloe vera products.

Aloe vera leaf juice is made by grinding entire plant leaves, treating, and then filtering them. This juice has many health benefits.
