View Full Version : Aloe Vera Juice/Gel question

06-06-2007, 05:13 PM
I've been drinking this garbage for a few weeks now. It tastes like bathroom cleaner(or at least what bathroom cleaner would probably taste like).

Besides a few health benefits, this chick at the health food store I get it from says to "take all vitamins, minerals, and other supplements with aloe vera juice for quicker and better absorption than water."

I haven't found anything concrete about this anywhere, just a couple studies showing enhanced absorption rates of vitamins C and E with the juice.

Anyone know anything offhand to support what this gal says? Or is it just fodder for sales?

All my searching keeps bringing me to hippy sites trying to peddle the stuff.

Maybe someone else has something more definitive other than me just saying "Quit drinking the stuff if it's nasty".

If you peel back the label a bit, does it say "Snake Oil" underneath?

lol.. I wish I had something more productive to add. This is mostly an excuse to subscribe to this thread out of curiosity. ;)
