Ideally Aloeride Extra Strong aloe vera is taken away from food (some 30-45 minutes before and some 60 minutes after) and with ample of water (filtering tap water always is a clever idea). That way, food particles won’t obstruct the polysaccharide binding sites in the gut (aloe vera uses these). Dosing is no hard science –as true for prescription drugs as it is for a food supplement or food itself– because often this is dictated by results which may vary from one individual to another.
The following are guidelines:
1 vegetarian capsule a day (easiest is 1 first thing in the morning -at your washstand- or 1 in the evening -at your washstand-; it can of course be taken any time of day to suit you) = maintenance dosage for adults who wish to boost general wellbeing or wish to help digestive tract issues and/or wish to help skin health. Even when dietary sensitivities are well managed by food choices, some extra help to buffer this sensitivity often proves very beneficial. For young children it is sensible to ratio their weight to that of an average adult (75kg) and use a proportion of the capsule content; see also ‘Can I take too much Aloeride Extra Strong’.
2 vegetarian capsules a day (easiest is 1 first thing in the morning -at your washstand- and 1 in the evening -at your washstand) = adult dosage when the digestive tract or the skin is compromised, people choosing this dosage often do so to fuel tissue repair. Because aloe vera’s effect lasts for 24 hrs (with most of this occurring during the first 12 hrs) there is no need to get into a flap about exactly at what hour to take Aloeride Extra Strong, just divide it (evenly if possible) over the 24 hrs. If you ingest 2 vegetarian capsules at the same time then you’re likely to ingest more beta-linked polysaccharides than there are binding sites for them, so you’d be wasting Aloeride polysaccharides as they’ll go straight through.
3 vegetarian capsules a day (1 in the morning and 1 at noon and 1 in the evening) = adult dosage when innate tissue repair needs a huge boost, this would never be a maintenance dosage. If you ingest 2 or 3 vegetarian capsules at the same time then you’re likely to ingest more beta-linked polysaccharides than there are binding sites for them, so you’d be wasting Aloeride polysaccharides as they’ll go straight through.
