Aloe is great! I drink it all the time! It helps to soothe and rebuild tissue within the lining of your intestines. Actually, it's good for all your tissue in general....ie. skin etc. There are so many different kinds. The purest ones tend to be a bit pungent (Lily of the Desert - aloe vera juice or gel) but you can mix them with juice or ginger ale. They are starting to make others that are mixed with fruit so it just tastes like a fruit juice. As well, recently I found one that looks and tastes just like water (George's Aloe Vera). So there are so many varieties. Usually, you want to make sure that buy one that comes from 'whole leaf' as it is the most nutritional portion of the plant from what I understand. Well good luck!
