Aloe vera gel contains many enzymes and essential amino acids, which are responsible for the healing properties of aloe. However, the bitter, yellow juice contains aloin, which can cause symptoms of poisoning if overdosed.

The healing aloe vera is poisonous to pets

Aloe vera gel can be applied directly to the skin or made into ointments, lotions or cocktails. After cutting off the leaf, the yellow, bitter-tasting juice should be allowed to run out for a few hours before the leaf tissue is used again.

Be careful with internal use

The commercially available aloe products are safe to consume. Side effects are not to be feared; at worst they are ineffective due to industrial processing.

You should be careful when harvesting aloe leaves yourself. Their juice contains aloin. This slightly toxic substance can cause symptoms of poisoning such as intestinal bleeding, diarrhea and electrolyte imbalance when ingested in high concentrations.

tips

Aloe vera is toxic to pets. Cats and birds can experience severe irritation of the intestines and kidneys from the toxins it contains.
