    I was advised to take ala Vera juice.   I get it out of Holland and Barrett .  

    I take it in a little orange juice or any thing I vhave and it certainly helps.

    It.s supposed to put a lining on your gut.   It is certainly very good for you.

      I bought Aloe Vera juice and am about to start taking 2 oz per day and monitor my reaction. I thought I'd also apply a little to my hair :-)

    I have taken it when I have had pains in my gut as I was told it was soothing. I wouldn't take it as a matter of course because it's not cheap and it tastes foul (in my opinion). I found more success in changing my diet to exclude pips, seeds, skins and spicy foods. Now it's much better I risk the odd `forbidden` thing occasionally.

    I tried for a short while but couldnt take the taste of it. I didnt give it time to work or not. The only thing that works for me is the high dose probiotics and drinking the fiber.

    I might try that. Maybe the Aloe companies will start making them with flavor so that more people would use their product.
