Has anyone tried taking Aloe Vera juice, does it really make much difference to COPDers as in more energy, vitality, less infections etc. I was talking to someone yesteday who has a chronic illness and I couldn't get over how well she looked since I last saw her- she just looked amazing and said her energy levels were up, she is taking Aloe Vera (has to be the right one, nothing added etc). Doctor told her OK to take with steroids. Sometimes it is energy I need more than better breathing. It is expensive so don't want to waste money, already take Vitamin D.
