Aloe Vera Gel – FAQs

There are many different Aloe Vera drinks available on the market.  The advice given in this post refers to Forever Living Aloe Vera Gel, which has the primary ingredient of pure stabilised aloe vera fillet gel, taken directly from the centre of the leaf, and is available in 4 different flavours.  Aloe Vera Gel, Bits n’ Peaches, Aloe Berry Nectar and Forever Freedom. 427566_323028404422414_219087814816474_902641_18814447_n

Like orange juice, Aloe Vera is a non toxic natural drink.  It has been drunk by man for many centuries and most people are only now discovering its benefits.

 

How much should I drink ?

This depends on your reason for drinking Aloe.  As with other nutritional supplements, some people take a small amount each morning – 2fl oz (60ml) to maintain general well being.  Other people boost their intake for specific reasons – when they might drink up to 6fl oz (180ml) or more a day.  The average, and the dose I personally take, is 4fl oz (120ml) per day.

Some people, such as the elderly, need less, whereas those with a larger frame need more.

Can children drink Aloe Vera?

Yes they can, but the serving size is reduced depending on their age.

  • Over 12 Years – as for adults
  • 6-12 Years – half of adult dose
  • 3-5 years  – quarter of adult dose
  • 2-3 years – sixth of adult dose
  • Not recommended for under 2s

Can I mix it with anything else ?Bee_Products_large

Yes, if you really don’t like the taste then try mixing it with pure fruit juice, cordial or honey.

 

When is the best time to drink aloe?

We recommend you take your Aloe on an empty stomach first thing in the morning to get the maximum benefit.  After drinking Aloe you can go ahead and have your tea/coffee or breakfast.

When should I feel some benefits?

We anticipate that few people will feel notable benefits before 6 weeks. We would urge you to take it for a trial period of at least 3 months.

How should I store the drink?

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.  Note that the date stamped on the bottom of the container is the bottling date.  The ‘use by’ date is on the label on the lid.

Aloe Gel Serving Size

The ingredients of Forever UK’s Aloe Vera Gel drink will soon be changing. The new formulation will contain less preservative agents to make it a much fresher product.

We only use 100% Inner Leaf Gel

We only use 100% Inner Leaf Gel

The Aloe Vera Gel will therefore have a shorter shelf-life, so once opened should be kept refrigerated and consumed within one month, rather than the 3 months currently recommended.

This change will be reflected on the Aloe Vera Gel bottle labels, showing a 120ml serving size and details of the new formula.  The current bottles show as 90ml daily service size.

What does this mean to you?

If you buy your Aloe Gel from me at Silicon Bullet Forever then I will make sure you are aware when the new bottles become available.  If you are on a low dose of Aloe such as 30mls per day then the bottle should last 33 days, which is just 3 days longer than the recommended shelf life once opened.  You may choose to up your dose a few days a month to make sure none of your Aloe is wasted.

What does Aloe Gel taste like?

One of the most frequent  questions I am asked when I am meeting people to tell them about Forever Living’s Aloe Vera Gel is “what does Aloe taste like?”

If you are in a room of Forever Living Distributors, this question is always replied to with a bit of a nervous giggle – as those of us that have tasted Aloe Gel know this is not an easy question to answer.  We nod and wink and say, “it’s delicious”. It has become a bit of an in joke amongst distributors.

This is why I often have Aloe Gel available for people to taste at events, and I get many reactions to that first taste too.  Firstly by being honest and saying it is not to everyone’s taste, you do lower expectations, so many take a nervous sip and say, “it’s not THAT bad”, whilst others screw up their faces and say, “how do you drink that?” or hardly even let the gel touch their lips.

So firstly, before you taste the gel and walk away in disgust, cast your mind back to that first taste of wine, beer, spirits or even coffee that you had. Did you think that it tasted delicious straight away, or was it a taste and flavour you gradually came to love?

Aloe Drinking Gels

Our Gel does come in four different varieties and flavours, although for many people the Plain Aloe Gel (or ‘The Yellow One’ thanks to the distinctive bottle colour) would be the gel of choice, some people just can’t get used to the taste – so here are a few tips to help soften the blow:

  • Drink the Gel quickly – don’t let it touch the sides.  One friend drinks hers out of a shot glass, as the positive mental images of drinking from a shot glass help it go down smoothly, another uses a wine glass for similar reasons.
  • Have another drink or snack ready to take the taste away – be that fruit juice, water, or some other drink.  My daughter uses a chocolate biscuit most mornings!
  • Add something to the Gel – you can dilute your gel with fruit juice – although orange is not recommended as it is quite acidic.  I have been told that blackcurrant juice works well.  One thing you do need to watch out for is that some of my customers don’t like this method as they can still taste the Aloe in the drink, and it just takes longer to gulp down.  A recent tip from Dr Peter Atherton (who is the GP on our Advisory Board) was to add a little fruit cordial or squash  to your Gel – this has the advantage of being less bulky and stronger in flavour than fruit juice and masks the taste quite well.
  • Start with a small dose (say 15ml) and work your way up to the recommended dose of 60ml gradually.  This gives your stomach a chance to get used to the Gel.

If you really can’t get on with the Plain Aloe Gel, then you can try one of the three other flavours.  Berry Nectar has added apple and cranberry Juice, Forever Freedom has orange juice added, and Bits n’ Peaches is the sweetest of the four with, yes, you guessed it, peach juice added.  I have written another post Which Aloe Gel is right for me ? with more details of the 4 different flavours.

The recommended daily dose of Aloe Vera Gel as a general tonic is 60ml per day, taken on am empty stomach first thing in the morning.  If you are taking the gel for a specific reason, however, you can up your daily dose to 100ml per day quite safely.  I take 60ml of Forever Freedom for the glucosamine, and condroitin and MSM due to my active lifestyle, and 60ml of Berry Nectar as I like the flavour.

So what does Aloe Vera Gel taste like?  It tastes delicious, it tastes like TCP, it tastes medicinal, it tastes like it is good for me.  The answer is different depending on who you ask – what does it taste like to you?
