I work at a medical office and had a mother and daughter clients come in. They were talking about aloe vera juice and how it cleared up daughter's acne after 1 month and mom's energy had increased. Both drinks about minimum of 3 bottles daily, not that they had to but because they loved it so much. I was given a bottle months before talking to them and refused to drink it thinking it would be too slimy for my taste. They told me there's several types and the one to try was the one with consistency of water and has little bits of aloe in it. I gave it a try when I got home and it was actually tasty and not at all slimy. A bottle of aloe vera juice is 1.5 Liter and easily found at Asian markets for under $2.5o a bottle. I was told to look for the kind that has consistency of water and avoid the ones that is thick or needs mixing. I shamefully do not drink enough water so to have added benefits included, like having better skin, motivated me and the taste made it a lot easier to increase my fluids. Hope the information helped

I've been dealing with rosacea & candida for about 1 1/2 now, So I decided to try aloe vera juice to see if that would work, I drink 4oz in the morning before I drink or eat anything and then wait about 20 min to eat, and then another 4oz before bed, I also apply the aloe juice to my face after I wash it and Its been 2 weeks now and what I can say is that my rosacea has gone from red to pink & not as much break outs and I also noticed the lil pustlets u get from the rosacea also shrink & dry up. The yeast infection that I had has also gone away (no more discharge)another big thing that I noticed that also has to with candida is low sex drive, well like I said I have been drinking the aloe juice for 2 weeks now and I've been having sex everyday with my husband.The aloe juice boosted my libido. At 1st I didn't even know it was the aloe juice so after the 1st week not to many changes but in the 2nd week I noticed that my libido that has been dead for such a long time has come back, which both my husband & I are happy about. The taste is bitter but I don't care if it helps me. All I have to say is I'm happy I started drinking the aloe juice for the benefits I'm receiving and hopefully in time with diet & my aloe juice my rosacea will completely be gone.

I needed this information a little while back, but I happened to remember what my Grandmother told me about ALOE VERA, you see my mother had a very bad bed sore and I applied ALOE VERA in layers drying each layer, it healed it right up. The nurses was packing it with gauze. What a stupid idea! ALOE VERA , I believe is what God gave us to heal ourselves. Thank You, Sincerely Bibby
