Post Drink Aloe Vera Gel????

Just bought the aloe vera gel tablets from the plant with 200:1 concentration, and I saw another product that cought my eye and that was the liquid form of aloe vera gel. Does anyone hear drink aloe vera gel, instead of apply it topically.

Hey Shady,
I've been drinking aloe vera distilled liquid from health food store basically to clean me out..... if you know what I mean. They told me it was a good colon cleanser and can rid the body of toxins. The gel form you are talking about I know nothing about. Anyone else perhaps??

Sup DeeDee,

Is that the only thing your using the aloe vera distilled liquid for? Isn't it good for the complexion to? Its says on the jar that its good for minor skin irritations, such as redmarks?

I've heard of people drinking aloe vera juice but have never taken it myself. It's supposed to be really good for your digestive system.

Hey Shade, To answer your question, I am only using the aloe vera for digestive reasons, but heck if it's helping my skin, I haven't a clue. I do know it cost me 10 dollars and it tastes like water. Maybe I got ripped off but it is helping me with my elimination issues so it's a small price to pay for something that is natural and I will not get dependent on (like laxatives). Clogged pores are enough...I don't need a clogged colon too!!

Hi. I occasionally take aleo vera pills, for the digestive system. About the juice, you can also use it as a toner on your face, i did this for a while some time ago and after i would apply the gel. i got very good results with this combination, now i just use the gel. i stopped using the juice on my face cos it was too much hassle, i couldnt be bothered to wait for it to dry and then apply the gel; but i'm sure i would go back to doing it if my skin got bad again! i cleared my acne completely with aleo vera (juice and gel) and also got rid of/faded most of red marks.

To DeeDeewith3,

does the juice youre taking have a slightly yellowish colour to it? I ask cos you say it tastes like water, the one i used tasted quite bitter.

ZC,
This is distilled water, looks like water, tastes like water.........so easy to drink....don't know why I have been struggling in the bathroom all these years. Hope it continues to work, and if it's helping my skin, even better!

I don't know about drinking aloe vera, but to clear your body of toxins, drink a lot of water a day (it totally help my skin and clear up my face).
