And for good reasons. It was an aloe vera drink. When I was younger my mum made me try some aloe vera juice straight from the plant itself and the taste is anything but pleasant!! Its bitter as hell and tbh for putting me through such horrid displeasures, I think child services should have been called at the time.
However aloe vera is meant to be good for ya right? So hold up on all calls to childline and read on!
So she produced this green bottle out of the fridge which looks a little something like this..
This little green product is called Aloe Vera King, and don't let the fact that it has aloe vera in it put you off, originating from Korea, so you know its bound to be amazing for your body!
So I tried this product and to my surprise I really liked it! If your the type of person who doesn't like bits in their drink, then this is not for you.
There are flecks of aloe vera bits in the drink, which are kind of jelly like and reminds me a bit of the inside of a grape, but a nicer version of the aloe vera (its not bitter at all), the juice itself tastes like it has a hint of grape flavour in it, I'm not entirely sure, but it actually tastes incredible and a glass of this a day is very beneficial to your health!
The ingredients include: Mineral water, fructose, Aloe vera powder (22%), Aloe Vera gel (8%), honey (Korea origin), acidity regulator: Citric acid, natural grape flavour
(There are no preservative, no artificial colouring, no artificial flavour, no fat, no GMO and contains pure aloe gel.)
Aloe Vera has these many health benefit: Improves blood circulation, prevents coronary heart disease, Relieves gastrointestinal problems, works as an antioxidant, aids in digestion, aids in kidney and liver functions, prevents hair loss, constipation and unpleasant breath, fatigue recovery, weight loss, the strengthening of joints and cancer fighting, improves the immune system, promote skin health and protect the cardiovascular system.
My mum, purchased this from an oriental supermarket, however we did see it in our local Asda in the oriental section. There are 2 sizes of this drink, a small regular bottle which cost I think less than £1.50 and the big bottle which is the bottle in the picture which was less than £3 (by a couple of pence).
I am definitely going to be stocking up and drinking more of this from now on! I encourage all to try and let me know what you think of this product! I can't wait to see the results of drinking this :D
