Reasons to Drink Aloe Vera

September 2010 Ann Fonfa, (president founder The Annie Appleseed Project) started drinking Stocktonj Aloe1. This product contains NO sodium benzoate (as all commercially-available aloe products do). Full disclosure - I called supplier to order it, and was given a sample half gallon for free. Have subsequently ordered it and paid for it.

Strong, smooth and health-giving. It arrives frozen and can be defrosted - stored in smaller bottles - and frozen again.

Since I am chemically-sensitive, I do not like to eat products with sodium benzoate nor any other preservatives. I prefer fresh and wholesome. See below for a link to Stockton Aloe1 if you desire the same. We make no money on the sale of this or any other product or service mentioned on our site. (Although many individuals and some companies eventually donate to our all-volunteer nonprofit).
