Sorry about the long title, but hopefully not too many of you are put off by it.
Anyway, here I am (Hopefully along with many of you out there) into the fifth day of this new case study, and I’ll start out by saying that yesterday I was sort of off the health food wagon so to speak due to my having a few friends over and eating a few snacks.
I can’t even remember what I had for dinner…possibly it was a salad (I did eat a small salad, with Kraft’s Sun Dried Tomato Vinaigrette dressing and marinade) so hat was healthy…but not much else, except for the bottle of Sabila Aloe Vera water that I drank.
So on Friday I sat down to a breakfast of Pancakes with one of the principals of Sabila named Ray Jarosz and we had an interesting conversation about the product and how it’s placed in the local market.
The company is using social media tools such as Facebook and Twitter to get in touch with the younger market, and they are partnering with local businesses in the area to co-promote local events such as this weekend’s in Barryville NY and Ray had suggested that I take the trip there, but that would have been a bit of a trek for me, and I don’t travel well on my own so I gracefully bowed out.
But as to Sabila’s product, Ray explained what the thinking is as to how he is marketing the product and also said that it’s still a work in progress as they continue to work on the formula for the product.
You may notice when you buy a bottle that there are bits of pulp in the content. That’s actually the pulp of the Aloe Vera. When I first tried one I thought it was the fruit from say a Mango or some Pineapple bits…silly me.
We talked a bit about the production aspect of the product and how they only used all natural products such as the aloe vera plants and pure cane sugar rather than say corn syrup and it does contain vitamin c.
You may notice in the picture that the plain “Aloe Vera” bottle was empty, well that’s the one I consumed last night and it tasted a bit like grape juice.
Now you may be wondering how I came about getting involved with the use of this particular product. Well it starts out with my having read an article…
There was an article that I was reading titled “Confessions of an acid reflux victim” and in the article the supposed writer was talking about called Aloe Cure, and while I did not go out of my way to find that product, it did bring back the memory of my seeing a product that I had seen a few times now being locally sold in a few different retail outlets here in Orange County NY.
So, one thing led to another and I tried one out. And I did not just gulp it down at first, I actually had that first bottle for at least three days before I finished the whole thing and the reason for that was because I wanted to see if it had any effect on my overall health at different times, such as when my stomach was feeling out of sorts, or when I was feeling particularly tired and lethargic.
I honestly did note a few “very minute” changes after taking a fe sips of this product,but I’m not saying it’s a miracle product…at least not yet.
So here’s the bottom line with me and Sabila at this moment.
I like the product, and I’m not asking for anything free from the company to endorse it, but for the moment it will be a part of my regimen for eating healthy and we will see where it goes.
More to come as I continue to introduce this product into my case study, and I want to thank Ray and Keenan from Sabila for taking the time to arrange things with me and of course for taking the time to talk with me the other day.
