    Aloha all....hope everyone is koo.


    Wonderin' if anyone currently takes aloe vera liquid or pills and if you can also state why you take it and which brand.icon_question.gif

    One guy at a building I was rehearsing in was talking so much about it, I said I'm going to ask yall on realjock. Took me a while but here it is.

    He had mentioned that it, for some, makes a great difference in their skin and also diet. I've never heard of "taking" it but while growing up and even still- know it well for using externally.


    Using it internally is something I had never heard before.

    Anyone?

    Hey,

    Aloe Vera can be used internally, but it is mostly for improvement of digestion and detoxification of the body. It can be used externally as well, as a hair treatment or skin rejuvenator, as well as soother of burns. There are various companies out there that sell Aloe Vera, mostly it comes in liquid form in large bottles, with or without additives in the form of herbs or taste enhancers.
    Here are some links to popular aloe brands:


    Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera-

    Hope this helps.

    i dont take the pill i take the plant form which is much better. I was raised on the knowledge that it purifies the blood especially if your a weed smoker and you have to take random drug test. I personally take it because it makes my skin glow and give it a smooth brown tone. i cut up the plant then i peel it and its really really really bitter so i suggest blending the inside jelly part with orange or apple juice. Or if your a pussy just rub it on your skin.topical-aloe-vera1.jpgaloe_vera2.jpg sorry for the boobage as google provided me the pic.

    When I used to have stomach problems I would drink it and it cured it. What I can remember it's best if you don't smell it depending on what brand you get. I've used Lily of the Desert and another one I can't remember.

    Thanks everyone, I appreciate that.


    Well, seems like it's not something I need to spend more money on at the v shoppe! lol I had no idea that it really was used for some stomach issues as well as detox. amazing, though not too surprising.
