Hi,
 
I know there are lots of topics on aloe vera juice but the search function isn't working for me. I just bought aloe vera gel and was wondering how much should I take each day? Should I mix with some green tea? Thanks!

I've always found good info about aloe on Dr. Andrew Weil's website. Try searching there and you'll probably find some good advice:
www.drweil.com

For the juice, he says 1 teaspoon after meals. Not sure about the gel, but I'm sure there's info there about it!

Jini Patel Thompson makes recommendations in her book Listen to Your Gut, but I don't have it with me. I take the George's Always Active Aloe Vera, 1/4 cup a day in the morning as maintenance. If I was in a flare, I'd probably take 1/4 cup 2-4 times a day.
