Watch this 
View More Posts Ignore
I have a friend that is very much into holistic/natural remedies. She takes and has recommend to me to take papaya enzyme and Aloe Vera juice after each big meal of the day. I dion't eat a whole lot any more but am trying to get one meal with protien and fiber in and thought I would try it.
Has anyone used this before and if so, have you seen a difference?

" I don't know about the papaya enzyme, but I have tried aloe vera juice twice and it seems to make me worse.....Not sure if it's that or something else though. "

" Thanks; Kpatience ~ I did quite a bit of research within the last few days. Both aloe vera juice and papaya enzyme are known to aid in digestion and help with IBS/Crohns also to help with irregularity.

I've been on them both for about 5 days now and have seen an amazing difference. much less bloating and easier bm's. It so far has been better than any prescription med I have taken.

As with anything, the effect is different on each person. but in doing my research I was suprised that more people do not use either one of these supplements.

It seems that in the holistic/alternative health community it is well known. But to the rest of us it's a nutritional secret. "

" As long as you don't have allergies to certain plants didn't agree with me, the aloe at least. "

" I know it needs to be refrigerated first off. Most bottles have an expiration date on them somewhere as it is perishable.
I had a bottle for a whole and just started taking it again, I checked the date and it was like January of next year.
hope that helps. "
