Getting the Most from Your Aloe Vera Drinks

How much aloe vera should I drink?

This depends on your reasons for drinking aloe vera. Most people take a small amount each morning – 60ml (2 fl oz) – to maintain their general well being. Other people boost their intake for specific reasons – when they drink 60ml (2 fl oz) of aloe 2 or 3 times per day.

Some people, such as the elderly and small children may need less; whereas others may need more. (Please note the “Serving Size 8 fl oz” printed on the side of the bottle is for nutritional comparison purposes only. It does not mean that 8 fl oz is a recommended amount to drink in one serving.)

You’re the best judge for the right quantity for you, depending on how you’re feeling. Remember this is a vegetable juice, not a medicine. Play around with it a little to find the perfect amount for you.

For more information about aloe vera, please see our page All about Aloe Vera

What are appropriate guidelines for kids?

12 years plus: Give the adult amount: (2 oz/60 ml)
6-11 years: Give half the adult amount: (1 oz/30 ml)
3-5 years: Give a quarter of the adult amount: (1/2 oz/15 ml)
1-2 years: Just give a teaspoon at a time

These are only guidelines, and you should bear in mind the size and weight of the child or young person.

Can I mix aloe vera with anything else?

Yes, if you really don’t like the taste of the pure aloe vera gel, then try mixing it with pure fruit juice or honey. Although you might find that you prefer the taste of the Aloe Berry Nectar, or the Bits n’ Peaches.

When is the best time to drink aloe vera?

We would recommend you take aloe vera on an empty stomach to get the maximum benefit, and then wait 10 minutes or so before having anything else to eat. First thing in the morning is good, and/or right before bed.

When should I feel some benefits?

We really don’t know. Everybody is different – different diets, lifestyles, sleep patterns, levels of exercise, etc. A few people may feel some benefit within the first week or so, although most need at least 2 – 4 weeks before they notice any particular changes.

This is why we have the 30-day money back guarantee – to allow you to fully experience aloe vera for yourself without any risk. We would encourage you to purchase two bottles initially and use them for the full 30 day trial period.

Are there any side-effects of using aloe vera?

Yes – mostly good ones!

There are occasionally some a mild detox symptoms the first time people start drinking Aloe Vera. Some people have noticed a slight headache, a few spots, a rumbly tummy or a change in their bowel movements for 2 or 3 days. Nothing particularly dramatic, but we wanted you to be aware of them, in case you happen to experience anything like this. If you’re not sure of the results that you are getting, then please contact us as we have a lot of experience with people detoxing and using the products for various healing purposes. We will be able to guide you through the most successful use of the products.

Is it safe to drink aloe vera?

Yes it is. Aloe vera is a natural vegetable juice, and  has been used safely for thousands of years. It is not a drug or a medicine. If you have any particular concerns or questions, please Contact Us.

How should I store the aloe vera drink?

As with most natural foods, once you’ve opened the bottle, it should be stored in the fridge. Of course, during storage, the natural pulp will settle, so do shake the bottle before use. (Please note that the date stamped on the bottom of the container is the bottling date. The ‘use by’ date is on the lid.)

Delivery Times and Costs

How long does it take to receive my aloe products?

You should expect to receive your parcel within 7 days of your aloe vera order, and in most cases sooner than that.

Please note that we do use recycled packaging as much as possible when shipping products – we like saving trees!

How much does delivery cost?

All ground shipments will be charged actual ground shipping rates or $7.50 whichever is less.

What if I live outside of the USA?

Please select the Aloe Shop for the appropriate country on the left side of the page where you can purchase directly from that country with local rates.

Our 30 Day Money Back Guarantee

If I am not happy with the aloe products, what do I do?

All our products carry an unconditional 30-Day Money Back Guarantee. We have this assurance so you can try these products properly, without risk, for a reasonable period of time, to see whether or not they’re going to benefit you.

Just using a product for a week or two probably won’t give you the benefits you might be looking for. We recommend using them for the full 30 days to determine exactly what kind of health the benefits you’re getting. However if you’re dissatisfied in any way with your product(s) within those 30 days, please simply return the remaining portion of the product to us, and we will refund your purchase price without quibble.

If you wish to return one of the Aloe Vera drinks, please just send us back the bottle cap for a full refund of your purchase price.

Note: Some people may experience a mild detox effect when first using our products, especially the drinks. This is usually a good sign – that something is being cleared out and the body is healing in some way. If you have any concerns please Contact Us. We might be able to help.

Product Quality and Results

How can I be sure of the quality of these products?

Forever Living Products were the first company in the world to be awarded The International Aloe Science Council (IASC) Seal of Approval. The IASC is an independent regulatory body for the Aloe Vera industry; for Forever Living to be the first company to be recognized for the quality and purity of its aloe vera products is quite an accolade.

Forever’s goal has always been to be the leader in the Aloe Vera industry and to lead the world with the highest quality products. Other awards include the Kosher rating on our drinks; and certification from The Islamic Society of California on many of our products.

Aloe Vera is our number one ingredient. We don’t simply add a few drops of aloe vera to a bunch of cheap ingredients… We start with 100% pure inner leaf gel and combine just enough of other ingredients as required.

Our products are meticulously quality tested by a staff of microbiologists to assure you get consistent and effective benefits. Our stabilized Aloe Vera has been declared as ‘essentially identical’ to the raw gel cut straight from the aloe vera plant.

For more information about FLP, or the quality of its aloe vera products, please see our article: “Why Forever Living Aloe Vera?”

Are these products tested on animals?

We are proud to say that none of our products – or the ingredients – are tested on animals.

How long will it take for me to see results with the Sonya skincare products?

Short answer: About 3 – 4 weeks.

Long answer: The skin is our largest organ and is made up of three layers: the subcutaneous, the epidermis and the dermis.

The dermis is the deep layer that contains fibroblast cells which give elasticity and suppleness to the skin. This layer needs nourishment internally as well as externally to thrive – which is why we recommend the aloe vera gel drink to give your skin the nutrients it needs from the inside.

The epidermis, or visible top layer of skin, is actually made up of a very thin layer of dead skin cells. And the body is constantly making new cells beneath this layer.

Since it takes approximately 21-28 days for the fibroblasts to reach the surface of the skin, where you can see them, you’ll need to use the Fleur de Jouvence
products for at least a month to start seeing the benefits. Why not use them for the full 30 days to really see what’s possible for your skin.
