Like orange juice, Aloe Vera Gel is a non-toxic natural drink. Although it has been used by man for centuries to maintain good health, most people are still discovering its benefits. You may be trying it for the first time, so we’d like to answer some questions of the more common questions people ask about drinking either Aloe Vera Gel, Forever Freedom, Aloe Berry Nectar or Bits ‘n Peaches.
How much should I drink?
This depends on your reasons for drinking Aloe Vera. As with other nutritional supplements, some people take a small does each morning (60mls or 2 tablespoons) to maintain their general well being. Others boost their intake for a specific reason and might drink up to 170mls a day. If you are in doubt, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for advice.
Can I mix it with anything else?
Natural is best, but if you really don’t like the taste, then try mixing it with pure fruit juice or honey. However, it should be remembered that fruit juices are acidic and may aggravate digestive problems.
When is the best time to drink Aloe Vera?
We would recommend you take the Aloe Vera on an empty stomach to get the maximum benefit and allow it time to get into your system. Generally we recommend 30 – 60mls first thing in the morning before your tea / coffee and breakfast and 30 – 60 mls before your evening meal.
When should I feel some benefits?
We anticipate that few people will feel notable benefits much before 4 – 6 weeks – therefore we do suggest that you keep drinking the gel for about 3 months. However, everyone is different and we have had customers feel the benefit of the Aloe Vera in the space of a week or two.
As with most natural foods, once you’ve opened the bottle, it should be stored in the fridge with the lid tightly closed. Of course, during storage, the natural pulp will settle, so you should always shake the bottle before use. Kept in the fridge, your Aloe Vera Gel can last up to 2 months – unopened the expiry date is printed underneath the container.
For Optimal Health – A healthy Lifestyle
- Eat a varied low fat diet. Some experts recommend five or more servings of fruit & vegetables each day, plenty of whole grains which are high in dietary fibre as well as vitamins and minerals, and low fat dairy products.
- Exercise regularly – even 30 minutes a week of walking or swimming or other form of exercise can lower the risk of disease.
- Protect yourself from the sun – too much sun damages the skin promoting skin cancer and cataracts.
- Control stress by becoming involved in a hobby
- Avoid weight increases – try to keep weight gain under 10kgs for an adult
