Aloe Vera and Amino Acids

Hey guys , just wondering, is there any amino acid profile to aloe vera? there is a guy in my gym who sells aloe products and he claims there are , i say “show me” since there are none on the nutrition breakdown that is printed on the box, any idea?

I highly doubt it.
Although I read it contains about 20 of the essentials, I imagine they’d be trace amounts.

its hard to contain 20 out of 8 but i guess it was a typing mistake :slight_smile: yhea i also thought thay were trace amounts. I will wait and see, i dont care much for planet protein just general knowledge.

Ha! Spelling indeed… planet protein?

lol

Pretty much all living things have amino acids, but I don’t know why you would be eating aloe vera for protein haha.

SFA, are you considering … vegetarianism???

I drink aloe a couple times a week.

No idea about it as an amino source, but lots of other stuff going on that makes it “good”.

OH HELL NO! if it had a soul i will eat it.
