How much aloe vera should I drink?

You've probably heard much about the benefits of taking aloe vera. This miracle plant has long been used for its amazing healing and detoxifying properties. It is also beneficial in regulating the digestive process and manages blood sugar levels quite effectively. Above all, aloe vera is relatively significant for its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal capabilities. Nowadays, it has become a highly sought after health supplement to increase the body's resistance against illness and disease.

So what is the right amount to take for the best effects of aloe vera?

It relies on your motives for using it. If you're using it as a nutritional supplement, a small amount consisting of 2 fluid ounces or about 60 ml in the morning should be sufficient. For others who intend to boost their intake for specific reasons, they can take the same amount two to three times daily.

Smaller children and the elderly generally need lesser amounts, while the average grown-up may need more. You are the best person to decide on your required daily intake, so it is best to start out with small amounts and increase your intake gradually, until you arrive at the desired amount that brings you the full benefits.

Aloe Vera comes with a label on the bottle that indicated a serving size of 8 fl oz. Please take note that this amount is indicated for comparative purposes only, so you get an idea of how much of each nutritional component there is in an 8-oz serving. This is not the recommended daily amount.

Since aloe vera is a vegetable juice and not medicine, it is safe to try out gradually increasing amounts to determine your personal requirements. As a guideline for general daily maintenance however, here are the suggested portions:

12 years and over: Give the adult dosage (2 oz/60 ml)
6-11 years: Give half the adult dosage (1 oz/30 ml)
3-5 years: Give a quarter of the adult dosage (1/2 oz/15 ml)
1-2 years: Just give a teaspoon at a time

Remember, these are only recommendations based on general guidelines. Most often, size and weight are good indicators, so if you have a larger than average 5 year old, you may increase the dose to 30 ml instead of just 15.

Can I mix aloe vera with other liquid drinks?

Some people prefer not to take pure aloe vera because of its taste. Yes, you may mix it with natural fruit juice or honey for better palatability. Or you may opt to take Aloe Berry Nectar which gives you the taste of cranberries and apples for natural sweetness. You can also try Aloe Vera Bits n' Peaches which augments natural aloe flavour with the taste of sun-dried peaches and peach concentrate.

When is the best time to drink Aloe Vera?

Aloe vera gel is best taken on an empty stomach. We recommend you take it 10 minutes prior to your meal in the morning or right before bedtime.

When should I feel the benefits?

The benefits are actually person-dependent. So we really can't pinpoint the exact time you will feel the positive effects of your aloe intake. Some report benefits in just a single week, while others need a couple of months to notice some changes in the way they feel. It is really relative to other factors such as the amount of sleep and the level of exercise you get.

That is why Aloe Vera Gel comes with a 60-day money back guarantee. We want you to have a complete experience with our nutrition products so you can test and feel the benefits for yourself.

With our guarantee, you don't have to worry about dissatisfaction or wasted purchases. A week or two is not enough to fully experience the benefits. We recommend you take advantage of the 2 month trial period to find out if you should continue taking Aloe Vera or any other product for your supplementation needs.

Are there any side-effects?

Yes there are, but mostly good ones! But since aloe vera has detox capabilities, some users feel mild detox symptoms such as nausea or a slight headache, a rumbling tummy or some temporary changes in their bowel movements for 2 to 3 days. A few report minor allergic reactions although these are not quite dramatic - some spots may show up, so it is important that you know these are possible side effects.

If you're in doubt about the effects or results you're getting, we are here to guide you through so you get optimum results. We have years of experience guiding our clients through their detoxification and healing processes, and we can walk you through your unique experience.

Is it safe to take Aloe Vera?

Yes it is. Aloe Vera is a natural vegetable juice, not a drug or medicine. It has been used safely for thousands of years. If you have specific concerns, please get in touch with us so we can guide you.

How should I store the aloe vera drink?

As with most natural foods, once you've opened the bottle, it should be stored in the fridge. Natural pulp settling occurs during storage, so shake the bottle before use. (Please note that date on the bottom of the container is bottling date and the 'use by' period is found on the lid)

I've been drinking aloe for 16 years and absolutely love the way it makes me feel. I hope you will enjoy the benefits as I have.
