I've been doing that for a while - well, what I do is I take a small glass (it looks like the size you'd get a gin and tonic in), put a scoop of chia seed in the bottom (which is meant to be good for you in general, but also boosts your fibre intake) the about a third of the way up with aloe vera gel, then the rest with fruit juice. Tastes fine, and it does seem to help. But the problem with so much that I try is that I'm always doing a lot of things at once, I couldn't tell you which helps and which doesn't, and I'm not about to start experimenting by seeing what induces a full-blown flare.
But, when I travel for work and I can't have my regular morning drink I think I do notice a significant difference. The extent to which it's the aloe v. the chia seed I can't tell you. It may just be that the travel puts an extra strain on me that my guts reacts to.
