I have been drinking it for 5 days now. I extract the gel by peeling the leaf first cutting the fillet of gel out rinse several times put in blender with one quart water and sometimes a little ginger or a lime and I have 2/3 glasses a day. 1 glass first thing in the morning on an empty stomach before I take my meds. And at night before bed. Sometimes a have a smaller glass in the morning one in the afternoon and then one before bed. I get my aloe Vera leaves at Walmart in the produce department. Label says that it is 240ml so that’s a little over 8 oz. before I use I cut of about the first 4 inches of the leaf and an inch off the bottom. It taste refreshing to me. I’m thankful that the aloe has no flavor. So u taste whatever u put in it. So it taste like watered down ginger or lime in my case.
