Forever Living Aloe Vera

We've all heard about the health benefits of drinking Aloe Vera. Detoxing the body, supporting the immune system, helps with digestion etc etc. So I wanted to find out what all of the hype was about.
A friend of mine recently started working for forever living. They are a company who make a lot of different beauty and health products all with the same main ingredient. Aloe Vera. 
She held a party where we got the chance to try out the different gels, face masks, makeup and a variety of other products. I was particularly interested in the gel. There had been reports that it helped ease IBS and Acid Reflux, aka the two things that had recently been making day to day life for me increasingly difficult. 
I ended up buying a carton of the Berry Nectar and was told to drink a small glass of it everyday for maximum effect.
The gel itself is a lot thicker and contains a lot of aloe Vera chunks, not what I was used to from previously drinking Holland and Barratts version. But this is due to Forever Living using purely the inner leaf of the plant (that's basically all the good stuff). So your only drinking the nutrients that you need. 
The taste is a lot better than the original flavoured Aloe Vera due to there being added Cranberry and Apple flavours added in, which are all completely natural. 
The first few days I have to admit I didn't really notice a difference and found myself thinking that I'd been conned into it. But then I started to notice the burning in my stomach had calmed down, my ibs symptoms were easing and I was getting my appetite back and not struggling day to day. 
After 2 weeks of taking the aloe Vera with breakfast everyday, I found that I had a spring back in my step that id previously thought I'd lost. I'm not saying it's a cure for IBS because we all know that's impossible, but I really do feel 100 times better than I did before I started. 
I am continuing to drink the gel everyday and will report back on my progress in a few more weeks to see if it continues to help, but for now I can't say enough good things about it. 
I highly recommend trying Forever Living out if you suffer from either IBS or Acid Reflux, it's the best decision I've ever made! Any questions feel free to ask? 

Love Lucy xoxo
