Does Aloe Vera Juice deplete the body of potassium?

No, Pukka Aloe Vera Juice would not deplete the body of potassium. The potassium issue is related to the laxative effect caused by the yellow aloin-containing latex that is sandwiched between the outer green part of the leaf and the inner gel. Our Aloe Vera is hand filleted and the outer green part of the leaf and latex are removed. The inner gel is the “juice”. Most other Aloe Vera Juices are made from the whole leaf, including the bitter outer rind and latex and then carbon filters are used to remove the latex – this process also removes some of the active constituents in the juice, so although our procedure is more time-consuming and expensive, we believe our juice contains all it should while avoiding the inclusion of potassium leaching latex.
