Hi and thanks for this awesome webiste about aloe! I am just wondering how the aloe tastes? I have heard it is awful so I don't know if I want to spend the money to try it.

Let me know and thanks again.

Hi Scott,
Thanks for stopping by the Q&A section and asking about the taste.

Like you, many people are skeptical of the taste and the first reaction is YUCK!! But, I assure you it is actually really delicious.

On first try I liked it right away! (the plain aloe vera juice). Some people don't though and I think it is more the thought of drinking the plant that bothers them more than the taste.

It is a neutral taste if I had to describe it. But if you decide to try it, go to our Aloe Products section and look for the buy products link.

Our supplier, Forever Living, has several flavored varieties. (My personal fav is the Bits and Peaches) and try one of the flavored aloe vera juices first.

This will satisfy you that it actually is really good stuff. You can then get a little braver and try the unflavored variety (which is better for you I think)

Hope this helps you get over the taste issue, and lets you enjoy the benefits from drinking aloe vera. Please stop back and let me know what you decided.

Cheers,
Teya

How does Aloe Vera Taste? - My opinion
by: Susan

Hi - I use the forever living aloe gel, and I found it really bitter - I mean I had to plug my nose to get it down lol. But, after a week I started to feel so much better that I have stuck with it.

I have gotten a little smarter and now mix it with equal amounts of orange juice. 2 ounces of the aloe gel or aloe juice to 2 ounces of orange juice. It masks the taste of the aloe vera quite well.

I do this twice a day, before meals or while eating. I have found if I take it without food, I get an upset stomach. Anyway hope this helps, and I feel so much better overall. I have been taking it for 3 months and doubt if I will stop now. My most noticeable improvements are how I feel, and the condition of my complexion.

Thanks for stopping by Susan. I actually like the taste but I too found it bitter. Great idea with the oj and I agree - take it before your meals.

Cheers,
