Aloe Vera Drinks - Review!!

Aloe Vera is one of the most famous plants in the world, and is has been used frequently in history for its medicinal properties....I knew it was good for soothing sunburn and skin irritation but I didn't know you could get Aloe Vera drinks....

Drinking aloe vera replenishes your body naturally with a huge range of nutrients....It contains approximately 200 active components including - vitamins A, B1,B2,B6, B12, C, E, folic acid and Niacin....It is often used to help with the symptoms of Irritable bowel syndrome and has also been shown to be helpful for conditions such as acid reflux....As well as all that it also helps with digestion, is good for immunity and good skin health.....

The wonderful people from Taj Foods sent me a couple of bottles of their Aloe Vera drinks to try.....

They come in six wonderful flavours....Pomegranate and Cranberry, Lychee, Strawberry, Passion, Original and Mango...


 I was sent the Strawberry and Original flavour to try....As soon as they arrived I opened them....The bottle is so bright and eye catching....These could really get noticed on the shelves in supermarkets!!

I took a swig out of the Strawberry one first....I was in for a shock....There was little pulpy bits in it which I was not expecting....There was nothing bad about them apart from the fact I nearly spat them out over my fella....lol I missed the bit written on the bottle which said it was 16% pulp....


 The strawberry Aloe Vera juice's taste reminded me of jelly which hasn't quite set....It was delicious!! Even though there is low sugar in it...It did taste sweet..I would gladly drink this again....

The original flavour wasn't so good for me....I just didn't like the taste.....My fella and the girls liked it so it really is just down to personal preferance!

I could see myself drinking the Strawberry one again....It is very refreshing....I can't wait to try the other flavours especially the Mango or Pomegranate and Cranberry which sounds delicious!!

These drinks are sold at a number of high street stores such as ASDA, Tesco and Sainsbury's....

**Please note - Aloe Vera drinks are not suitable if pregnant, breast feeding or for children under 3**

I was sent these products free of charge for my honest review....All thoughts and opinions are my own...

  7. I've seen these everywhere lately, and I really love the look of them. Years ago when I was a gym bunny (I know - hard to believe) I used to drink aloe vera concentrate, and I swear it did me the power of good. Would defo like to give these drinks a try as they sound yummy too :-)
