In brief: Cape aloe leaf

I admire you for interest in your Health.
Some aloe products are made from the whole crushed leaf, so they contain both gel and latex. Aloe gel applied to the skin may cause burning and itching. Aloe latex can cause stomach pain and cramps. Long term use of large amounts of aloe latex may cause diarrhea, low potassium, muscle weakness, weight loss and blood in the urine. See Physician for effects
