Thanks for sharing, Susan!! This is great info and it actually makes me want to continue drinking the aloe even after my 8-day commitment to drinking it is over…the part about how aloe fights inflammation and hells with joint pain is incentive enough for me. I need all the help I can get with all of my “old football injuries.” Heh, heh, heh!
Seriously though…the aloe hasn’t been that bad for me this time around. Last time I practically gagged every time I drank it and I reeeeaaaally dreaded it; but this time I haven’t had a problem with it at all…super weird! Maybe they’ve improved the taste since I last used it three years ago…??
Erin, I have been drinking it for about 10 years and have not noticed any change in the flavor. The change is from what is living or not living in your mouth…the bad taste is from the bacteria dying off when you drink it. If you don’t have as much bacteria, then you don’t have that yucky taste. Believe it or not, some people say it has very little flavor. I hated it at first, but now find it to be quite mild.
