To people who use Aloe Vera juice: does yours contain citric acid?

I have GERD and it's causing quite some damage to my esophagus. So i went and bought a bottle of Aloe Vera juice. I tried it only once, but it had a very sour taste, wich is strange since it was supposed to heal gerd. Also it hurt really bad going down my throat and my stomach hurt later on. Then i looked at the label and it said it contains citric acid. Is it supposed to contain citric acid? Wouldn't citric acid cause even more reflux?

- Thanks in advance!

Yes! I bought the 'Lily of the Valley' brand and it says it contains Citric Acid (ph stabilizer) and Potassium Sorbate (mold inhibitor)

Hope that helps!

And the citric acid in it doesn't cause you to have reflux?

I'm not sure because I just bought it yesterday...only had two doses so far. I am curious to hear from other long time users.

The best one I found is (ALOE PURA) , it is 100% Natural and Organic. They also do one especially for the stomach called (DIGESTIVE AID JUICE) I found it very helpful.
It is made entirely from the ALOE VERA plant and nothing added.
Hope this helps Solofelix.

I wisited the farmacy and asked if they have anything without the citric acid. And he said that ctric acid is a preservative. Without it all aloe vera cells would die and the juice would go bad. It would be great if more uses could reply. Looking forward to your answers!

Re: To people who use Aloe Vera juice: does yours contain citric acid?

I'm also curious about this as every brand i have purchased contains citric acid and i'm afraid to take them because of that. I just wonder if all Aloe Vera juice contains citric acid and if it's because it's necessary so it doesn't spoil--also i'm curious if the amount of citric acid is weak enough not to cause any reflux though i guess that depends on the brand..
