Cape Aloe Compound


These capsules are brilliant where there is a strong desire to maintain regular bowel function. Customers tell us that Cape Aloe Compound provides a stronger level of support for bowel cleansing than the Cascara Compound Capsules or the Colon Programme. The latter, we recommend when bowel cleanse supplements are is desired for the longer term. Many people use Cape Aloe Compound for extra support in the short term (1-2-3 weeks) and then swap to Cascara Compound Capsules or the Colon Programme.

Another way is to combine the two. For example, taking 1-2 Cascara Compound capsules 3 times a day, plus 1 Cape Aloe Compound capsule, 1-3 times a day.  Experiment, and see what feels more natural for you.

This Cape Aloe is derived from the Aloe Ferox plant growing in southern South Africa – near to Cape Town, hence the name. Synonyms are bitter aloe, aloe latex, red aloe and tap aloe. (It is well-named as “bitter aloe”; if you do happen to dab a speck of the powder onto your tongue, it will be one of the most bitter things you ever taste.)

The part of cape aloe used in the formula is found just below the skin of the cactus-like plant.

Cape aloe is a close relative of the aloe vera plant, whose inner leaves provide a very soothing gel for the skin and digestive tract.
