Aloe Ferox bitters is traditionally used for the beneficial effect it has on symptoms of constipation, eczema, pain due to arthritis, and high blood pressure.
Constipation causes harmful toxins to build up in the body. Toxins that are not properly excreted can potentially be absorbed again, and may lead to poor health. There are numerous health problems that may be linked to constipation such as colon cancer, diverticulitis, breast cancer, appendicitis, hiatus hernia, varicose veins, and hemorrhoids.

Aloe ferox bitters contain compounds that are unfriendly to bacteria, viruses and parasites, and also help to detoxify and support disinfection. They help lessen pain, and favor an anti-inflammatory action. Further, they act as a natural laxative to reduce and prevent constipation. Bitter Crystals may also be used on pets to reduce inflammation and helps aid in digestion, and helps repel ticks and parasites.
As a laxative: Take 50-300 mg crystals in a single dose at night.
Other uses: Take 50 mg bitter crystals daily with meals.
A crystal of 50 mg is approximately the size of a match head. Larger crystals can easily be crushed into smaller crystals.
Safety: Do not use Aloe ferox bitters in cases of intestinal blockage, acute inflamed intestinal disease (e.g. Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colon inflammation), appendicitis, abdominal pain of unknown origin, pregnancy and breastfeeding.
