Although aloe vera has significant gastroprotective efficacy, some forms of aloe vera can produce a laxative effect. Thorne’s GI-Encap’s aloe vera ingredient comes from the inner fillet of the aloe vera plant, which avoids this effect. The licorice in GI-Encap has had its glycyrrhizin removed which prevents increases in blood pressure. GI-Encap also contains slippery elm bark (Ulmus rubra) and marshmallow root (Althea officinalis), both of which contain mucilaginous components that can soothe the digestive tract. The GI-Encap can be taken out of the capsule and mixed with warm water to drink as a tea to soothe esophageal irritation,
