In brief: Not very

Aloe vera juice is not a standard therapy for ulcerative colitis and will not treat it.
In fact, not taking appropriate meds for the disease can lead to serious life threatening complications. Tried and true medical protocols are the safest way to manage uc and you need regular followup with an expert no matter how good you may feel.

In brief: Not effective

Aloe is typicallyvaken as a gentle laxative.
It may have some symptomatic relief but shouldnt make the colitis worse.
