You have to be careful with aloe vera juice. Here's an excerpt from Kmottus about the latex (the laxative part of aloe vera):"Aloe vera latex (which is bitter so you can kinda tell how much any given "juice" product has in it based on how bitter it tastes) is a stimulatory laxative.Generally this is not considered a good long term solution because of the colon's response to long term stimulatory laxative use (gets dependant and then you may not be able to go unless you use stimulatory laxatives).Short term infrequent use may be OK, but you do have to watch the dose as too much can cause diarrhea and dehydration from that."Hope that helps!
But aloe vera can be wonderful too, actually in many ways, so don't entirely discount it. I will, however, insert another negative. Just the other day, I read that long-term use of aloe can result in loss of certain minerals in the body. So can other things, but something to note.Still, aloe vera has its place, I feel.
