Cape Aloe Compound


These capsules can help maintain regular bowel function. We believe that a healthy bowel expels waste as often as you eat – about 3 times a day.

We recommend Cascara Compound Capsules or the Colon Programme for longer term use.

This Cape Aloe Compound is excellent for extra support in the short term (1-2-3 weeks).


Cape Aloe Compound Capsules


Customers report that Cape Aloe Compound can be very helpful for regular bowel function. We believe that “3 times a day” (as often as you eat) is healthier than than the “once a day” which some sources suggest can be “normal”. For our money, that means waste material stays in your body longer than it needs to.

For longer term support (over a month) we usually recommend Cascara Compound Capsules or Colon Programme. If extra support is needed, try these Cape Aloe Compound and see if they suit you.

Some people tell us that both these formulations work well for them, when combined.

Please contact us for advice (completely free and no obligation) on using these brilliant formulations either alone or in combination. Take advantage of our 40 years of great experience with them. At Specialist Herbal Supplies, our first thought is to get you the best support for your health.

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 in your life.)

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.


(Min per Vegetarian capsule) 72mg Cape Aloe, 36mg each Barberry, Cascara, Cayenne, Garlic, Ginger, Senna, Wild Yam.
