Topic: Experiences with Aloe Vera used internally??....
ok so some of this post could contain what some might view as TMI but I thought I'd give it a go-
I've enjoyed a drink in the past from my local deli which contains aloe juice and pulp....very tasty but also contains a lot of fructose.....I decided to go to my local Vitamin Shoppe and purchase a 'Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Gel -Inner Fillet....I've taken it @ the recommended dose-2 oz, perhaps even less, diluted with either juice or water....what follows is intense digestive discomfort, inc cramps, breaking out in a cold sweat and a feeling of wanting to pass out very briefly and an extended stay in the loo ;-)....not pretty!
should I be having such a serious reaction to just aloe? After using it the first time I swore I wouldn't drink it again but I thought, what the heck let's try it again...oy!
