Aloe ferox has been harvested as a medicinal plant for over 200 years. Bitter aloe is among the tallest of the more than 400 aloe species found in the Cape, and Aloe ferox produces 20 times more bitter sap and has higher nutrient concentrations than aloe vera. It is most notable for its renowned natural colon cleansing benefits. As a natural laxative and colon cleanser, it is probably the strongest of the natural laxatives. Like most medicinal herbs, Aloe ferox has a host of other health benefits as well, from helping IBS and arthritis to its immune modulating and antiviral properties.

Aloe Bitters from Pakmed in a 15g powder form

Digestive Cleanser - Research on constipation has shown that Aloe ferox bitters is an effective laxative for acute constipation and that the bitters does not present any safety risks for short- or long-term use. ABP taken internally produces a natural laxative. It is also known to relieve the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and it is thought that taking aloe for four weeks could reduce symptoms of IBS. Its pesticidal/fungicidal nature also has the effect of eliminating parasitic organisms in the digestive system. Taken internally, the laxative effect of the powder is very strong and therefore needs to be used with great caution.

Liver Health – Researchers found a significant improvement in liver health after treatment with Aloe ferox bitters. Those treated with bitters had much lower damage to their livers than control groups after other treatments that are known to affect the liver.

Numerous scientific studies on aloe are demonstrating its analgesic, anti-inflammatory, wound healing, immune modulating, and anti-tumor activities as well as antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. Its juice has been shown to lower cholesterol and triglycerides while demonstrating anti-diabetic activity.


Do not use in: pregnancy or breastfeeding; during menstrual bleed, gastro-intestinal inflammation, intestinal obstruction, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, appendicitis, abdominal pain of unknown origin, haemorrhoids.

Not to be used by children younger than 12.


Take 50 to 300 mg crystal in water or juice at bedtime or at your convenience.  The crystal will become “gummy” on the bottom of cup.  It will not dissolve, so you can keep adding water to the glass with that same crystal all day long if you take it earlier in the day. The taste has the bitter quality of a typical grapefruit.

Use for 1 day. Repeat as needed until you get the desired results or regular bowel movement occurs.  The smallest dose necessary to maintain regular bowel movement should be taken.

Some people prefer to take a small crystal and swallow it with a full glass of water. Water is the key to taking the crystals this way, so the more water you drink, the better your results.

A crystal of 50 mg is approximately the size of a match head.  Larger crystals can easily be crushed into smaller crystals.  Place crystal(s) between 2 spoons and gently press spoons together.
