Aloe vera and phosphatidyl choline? My doctor suggested these today. Was wondering if any of you have tried these? Aloe vera comes in a juice form (not to be confused with the lotion!).

Hi KSpace5000, and welcome to HealingWell! Some folks have been using this but prefer the Aloe Gel. I think if you go up above the blue bar to the "Google Custom Search" and put in Aloe Vera Gel, you should get some good posts on it. I think the actual juice has given UC folks problems such as more diarreah. Hope this helps! Take care, and again welcome to the forum.

Heard of Aloe Vera "juice" before - be careful with that - you want the juice, not the "latex" as its a laxative! :p

Here's some more info:
- Phosphatidylcholine
- Aloe Vera

Bit flakey, but some simple trial type info
"We are dreamers, shapers, singers and makers..." - Elric, elder Technomage
    - 2xColazide, twice a day; 1x6-mp twice a day; 1xAbatacept 10mg/kg per month;
    - 1xZinc per day, 1xDesert spoon of Metamucil smooth orange 3 times a day;
    - 3xGarlic Oil caps 3 times a day, 7mL Olive Leaf Extract 2 times a day.
