Aloe juice: Aloe juice, despite all the hype found on the Internet and on untrustworthy medical TV shows, has not been shown to be effective in treating acid reflux. It also interacts with many medications, and will act as a laxative. I do not recommend trying to use aloe juice when treating acid reflux. Tecta is very effective for this. Use it as prescribed and follow anti-reflux measures. Good luck.
