Aloe Vera versus Aloe Ferox

‘What is the difference between Aloe Ferox and Aloe Vera’ is a question lots of people ask, wanting to know which one is the best.

Aloe Vera is the most used medicinal plant of the two and has the healing properties in the polysaccharides which can be tested at accredited laboratories. Aloe Vera processing is much more advanced and plenty of clinical studies have been conducted worldwide.

Aloe Ferox differs in the sense that it changes in composition from area to area where it is grown, being indigenous to South Africa.

Aloe Ferox has much more sap that bleeds out and is known for the bitters which is a laxative. Furthermore, the absence of acetylated compound in Aloe Ferox precludes the NMR method for testing the species. SO, quality control cannot be applied.

SO in general, it is up to you the user to make the decision you feel confident with.

This can become very scientific and not many studies have been done on Aloe Ferox.
