I hesitate to edit any testimonials that I so gratefully receive, however, changes are sometimes made to punctuation and grammar. The acronyms and assumptive abbreviations (although I understand the game) are sometimes distracting from the message and, when I feel the meaning can be ambiguous because of these, I will at times shoot for the good ol' long hand version in which I was schooled.

“I’ve suffered from a sore stomach for the last 7 years since undergoing open lung surgery after having 2 collapsed lungs. With the volume of antibiotics and drugs I’ve had post surgery this has resulted in my stomach lining being very weak – I am now susceptible to frequent sore stomachs and heartburn if I have any spicy or rich foods, coffee or alcohol. I’ve tried many different forms of Aloe juice but nothing works as effectively as the pure juice from the Aloe leaves I have been getting for quite some time now from AloeFresh.
I simply drink a glass before I go bed and this provides instant and longer term relief.”

"I use aloe every day as an aftershave (I shave my face and head) and there is no other application for skin health and freshness as good as Aloe gel straight from the leaf.
I also drink it diluted in water as the instructions on the Aloefresh site says for my digestion which I used to have problems with. Since I have been taking the juice my digestive problems are gone."
I have suffered from stiffness in the mornings for years and was a struggle to sit on the floor and get up. I thought it was just old age (60). I would just like to let you know I have been taking your aloe vera juice twice daily now for a few months and have no more stiffness and can sit on the floor and get up with ease. I have always used aloe care for sunburn and skin but never realized the plant had so many nutrients for internal use. I am wary of many products on the market and I love and trust your fresh leaf. Thank you so much. I am so happy to have discovered your product.

WOW! I'm not usually an excitible person, mainly due to my lack of energy and general tiredness.
I thought I had chronic fatigue which I have read about. Recently (a couple of weeks ago) I bought a fresh leaf from Bruno and followed the instructions on the web site to make a juice. Bruno suggested I drink the blended juice 50/50 with water about a normal glass twice a day. After a week I just had a lot more energy and my head fog was gone most of the time. I am writing this because Bruno asked me to tell my story about aloe. I will write more in a month or two.
Thanks so far Bruno.

I have been making juice from what I thought was aloe vera for the past year until I met Bruno who told me I was going to a lot of trouble for nothing.
He said that the aloe variety I was using is a common plant throughout New Zealand and has no medicinal benefits and it is not the ‘TRUE ALOE’.
I purchased a leaf from Bruno which he said was the real thing and he told me to go to the web site to see how to prepare it and see all the uses it has. I couldn’t believe how amazing the leaf he sold me was. Within a few days of drinking the juice I noticed and incredible increase in my energy and I felt better all round. I also noticed after a few weeks that my BMs were regular and believe me that is a relief. HaHa. I have had difficult bowels for years and now they are great.
I have also started using it on my face and skin in general and it is amazing. Better than any creams and cosmetic moisturisers I have ever bought before and a lot cheaper.

Thanks for the aloe leaf. It's been great for Ryan's skin. Absolutely amazing. As I said I have used the steroid from the doctor for 7 months and now in about 3 weeks his skin is so much better. I hate putting chemicals on a 7 year old's skin. This seems great. Can I get another couple from you - please phone me on ________ to arrange.

I met you at the huckleberry shop when you were doing a display.
Thanks for the aloe leaf and info on how to use them. I was a bit skeptical of your claims at first but now I’m an enthusiastic fan. Told all my friends and a couple of neighbours.
And you are going to laugh (I hope) because my dog is Bruno as well and he is incredibly happy. No more endless itching and scratching and being uncomfortable and unable to sit still. The skin irritation is clearing up incredibly fast.
Really happy, will be getting a leaf regularly.
Please email me more about adding the juice to his diet. I can’t find that on the web site.
