Facial Protection Month with Noni
Research has shown that Noni has a rejuvenating effect on the cells' ability to produce the basic building blocks of healthy skin. Researchers discovered a plant chemical in the raw pulp of Noni belonging to the anthraquinone family to be responsible.
Since ancient times, women have been admired for young, healthy, bright skin. However, time and excessive sun exposure can lead to premature aging. That’s why finding safe and healthy allies in our quest for beautiful skin is essential. Research has shown Noni Fruit applied topically (Noni Lavender Lotion) may guard against premature skin aging. These natural antioxidants help delay the aging process while the beneficial emollients in Noni help smooth out the skin.
Over the years, we at Hawaiian Organic Noni have learned from our valuable clients many ways to utilize our organic Noni products for various skin irritations and concerns. To be honest with you, I was very surprised in the beginning (25 years ago) from the feedback we received.
Folks were reporting that the Noni Lavender Lotion:
- Promotes skin clarity, reduces appearance of spots and discoloration
- Aides troubled skin from non-cystic acne
- Promotes healthy skin tone and texture
- Strengthens and protects against free radical damage
- Soothes irritated skin from rashes and bug bites
I highly recommend spending some time reviewing the testimonials for people and pets. Look for the “Skin Irritations” sections. You might find some very interesting reviews to help you with your own skin irritation.
This month’s featured article has been popular for many years. Dealing with age spots can be challenging, but research and testimonials confirm what Noni can do for your age spots. We have found that regular application of Noni to the skin, new cell growth is promoted as age spots diminish and wrinkles diminish. Enjoy the Article of the Month!!
Prevent Unwanted Age Spots with Noni!
That From the Doctor’s Prescription for Healthy Living magazine article:
That Noni is excellent for repairing the skin was shown in September 2009 in the journal Evidence Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine. A team of researchers from the Faculty of Medical Sciences wrote:
“Morinda citrifolia (noni) is one of the most important traditional Polynesian medicinal plants” they write. In their study, noni resulted in a 71 percent reduction in the affected area. The granulation tissue weight and hydroxyproline content were increased significantly with noni. Again, noni is a cellular nourisher, as shown by enhanced hydroxyproline content, another key indicator of the healing process.
In other words, Noni Fruit promotes rebuilding skin tissue while simultaneously stopping brown spots and freckles
In 2005 from the Journal of Medicinal Food, researchers from Corena Skin Science Center in Korea noted that they found that Morinda citrifolia (Noni) up-regulated biosynthesis of type 1 collagen and glycosaminaglycans.
This means that Noni has a rejuvenation, beneficial effect on cells' ability to produce the basic building blocks of healthy skin.
You are What You Eat- Protecting True Organics
I have been an organic farmer/grower for forty years and it is becoming increasing clear that the organic movement is in danger by corporate agriculture. Over time, there has been manipulation by corporate America of what organic practices really mean. Most importantly for me as an organic farmer, is working with nature by honoring healthy soil. On our Organic Noni Farm and Wellness Tours, I spend over a half an hour discussing what we have learned in 40 years working with nature through mulching, composting, vermiculture (worms) and compost teas. All I have been doing is mimicking what Nature has done for millennium in the forest floor. Leaves fall on the ground creating mulch, a perfect environment for earth worms. Did you know that there are thousands of species of worms in the forest floor making top soil? Did you know that scientifically there is more nitrogen in the air than in the ground? Plants turn green when it rains from the nitrogen the rain water falling from the sky picks up and deposits on the leaves. Nature feeds plants through their leaves and rain water delivers the nitrogen from the air. Therefore, compost teas are using the water to deliver nutrients to grow healthy plants just as Nature does with rain.
The main points is: no toxic pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers for the plant to absorb and then for you to absorb when eating conventionally grown fruits and vegetables. Healthy soil makes healthy plants and trees. Healthy plants and trees give us healthy vegetables and fruits to feed the cells of the body. Show me one pesticide, herbicide or chemical fertilizer that feeds the cells of your body.
We need to keep Organic truly meaning organic by mimicking nature and not manipulating “organic labeling” for corporate greed.
Please take the time to read what the NEWS FROM THE CORNUCOPIA INSTITUTE has to say about this important subject to protect what you eat. You are what you eat!!
Organic or "Organic"
There are now two definitions of organic. On one hand are life-affirming agricultural practices adhering to the spirit and letter of organic regulations; on the other, industrial-scale production, based on conventional farming methods, that are simply substituting organic inputs for toxic synthetics. The USDA is complicit in this split, not enforcing organic animal welfare standards in what are clearly confinement operations, allowing hydroponic production in organics, and allowing cheap, imported, “organic” grain to flood the country. When consumers buy organic from true organic farmers, they are absolutely getting what they pay for. Cornucopia’s scorecards help consumers separate the organic wheat from the chaff.
