    Where do you find edible aloe vera gel?

    One other wholefood that I'm looking for...edible aloe vera gel. The kind you can eat OR put on your skin. All I see here in BKK is the 69 baht aloe vera gel for the skin and aloe vera juice.

    Here is a link for some that is from America. It's cheap, but the shipping from America is NOT cheap, lol. The shipping to thailand is about $37.

    That's a toughie. There's quite a lot of esotoric foodstuffs at Queen Sirikit Centre. Not guaranteed you'll find what you want.

    Why don't you just buy the fresh stuff instead?

    It doesn't taste the best, but it's bearable.

    TOP TIP: put some on a shaving cut and it heals in a day!

    Same place as the unpasteurized honey - Lemon Farm. You shouldn't eat or drink the gel straight from the plant.

    Why not Nats?

    I don't remember any unpleasant side effects, but then I did only eat a small bit.

    yes, but you also spent the night inside a lawnmower catcher trying to put the legs back on a cockroach!

    For one, it's really bitter. I can't remember, but I read that it can have some negative effects. I just care about you ajarners, that's all.

    Reg, you asked why you would eat it or drink it - Primarily it's good for your stomach and to act as a natural laxative. Need more?

    It helps relieve peptic ulcers and indigestion.

    Why not just grow a plant? Then you can break off a leaf and use it any time you want.

    I wouldn't recommend that you eat it straight from the plant, its laxative effect is quite harsh in its natural state.
    If you do, don't plan to leave home for a while.
