Several years ago, my MD recommended aloe vera juice for my GERD symptoms. He stressed it should be cold pressed (or processed). I did use it whenever GERD would flare up (once or twice a year) and it seemed to really help. A couple weeks ago, though, I went to buy some aloe vera juice and found the George's brand which actually tastes just like water, amazingly. I don't really think it's helped that much though. It says that potentially harmful ingredients that are generally in aloe vera juice have been extracted out.

My question is - of those of you who use aloe vera juice for GERD, do you find there is any problem with just using the cold processed type? I felt that it was fine for me, even though I was never totally crazy about the taste. I see that Walmart pharmacy has some cold processed aloe vera juice I'm thinking of trying. Wondering if it's any good.

Thanks for any advice, Betsy

I've used the Walmart/Walgreens cold pressed aloe vera juice just fine. It doesn't taste very good but I am able to down 2 oz with no problems. I took 2 - 4 oz twice a day for 6 weeks and my GERD symptoms have essentially disppeared. I know I still have it because if I sleep laying flat I will wake up with the taste in my mouth. Still, I'm no longer having the burning, the pain, etc. that is so typical of GERD. When I do experience a flare up I simply start taking it again.

Thanks Marburg! Yes, I think it's helped me, too. I haven't had a lot of flare ups recently, but actually another thing I find very helpful is DGL licorice! Also I take digestive enzymes, or at least try to remember, with food.
