I've been taking small amounts of Aloe juice for months now but today I decided to drink about a 8 ounce glass.
I suffer from constipation so I thought I would try this.
Within 20 minutes I had a bm. My meds seem to be controlling the bleeding and I'm hoping the Aloe juice will help with repair of my gut and regularity of my bowels.
BTW, Aloe Vera Gel is just Aloe Vera juice with Carrgeenan added. I checked on the Lily of the Desert site and they state this in their FAQ section.
The gel is yucky and Carageenan is used to induce IBD in lab animals, so I feel strongly that the juice (even tho it tastes bitter) is the way to go.
I'd like to hear from other's drinking the juice and what quantity they drink - thanks!!
