I just started today and the taste is horrible! Anyhow, I am hoping it will help my Kidneys and my UC.
 
Just wanted to hear others experiences.  I am doing 2 oz. a day of Natures (pride, think?) whole leaf juice.
 
TIA!

I just found info online, says it's a laxative and not to take for Kidney Disease and if you have UC. Throwing it away tonite!!!!

DOH! I could have saved myself the $7, I guess I wanted to believe in it so much..........

Beth, I believe some have tried it but were using the Aloe Vera Gel instead of the juice. If you are still interested, go up above the blue control bar to Google Custom Search and search for Aloe Vera Gel. You might get some good posts from that.

Some posters here said the best one to use was Lily of the Valley Aloe Vera Whole Leaf Gel. Supposedly, that brand and type removes the laxative part of the leaf before manufacturing.

Out of curiosity would aloe vera lotion do anything for UC or is it just the juice that works. I've always wondered about this when I first heard someone mention drinking aloe vera.
