Noni Fruit, Natural Antioxidants, and You
For thousands of years, Polynesians and Hawaiians ate the raw non-fermented fruit as part of their daily diet to promote overall good health. Modern day research has identified over 165 beneficial compounds in the pulp of Noni fruit. That is why I always say, “Is Noni Fruit a miracle? NO. Does Noni Fruit promote overall good health? Absolutely, if you do not destroy the compounds found in the noni pulp.”
I was being interviewed on a local health talk radio show and was asked why Noni Fruit is so beneficial. It is sometimes hard to put into a short answer why Noni Fruit is so potent when considering all the beneficial compounds in noni pulp.
My answer was something like this:
“Well, you can look at the long list of beneficial compounds that research has identified in noni pulp but putting that aside, Noni Fruit has a Double Whammy effect going on based upon recent published research. Research in the last 5 years has shown Noni Fruit (pulp) to be the #1 anti-inflammatory and the #1 antioxidant.
If you consume noni fruit daily, the beneficial compounds promote a healthy response to inflammation. That’s one whammy! The other whammy, for maintaining overall good health, is the abundance of natural antioxidants in noni fruit. Natural antioxidants help slow the oxidative processes and free radical damage that contribute to age-related degeneration and diseases.
Polynesians and Hawaiians found by trial and error that if they ate noni fruit, they stayed healthy. They did not know why, but modern day research points to the naturally high anti-inflammatory and natural antioxidant properties in the noni pulp.”
The bottom line is, noni fruit is a raw food that feeds the cells of the body to maintain good health or bring the body back into good health. Our Noni Fruit Leather is pure raw noni pulp with no additives or preservatives – simply 100% Organic Noni Fruit.
What Can Noni Lavender Lotion Do For You?
I would like to revisit two of the articles published in a national magazine about our Lavender Noni Lotion several years ago.
The first article was titled:
"Prevent Unwanted Age Spots with Noni!"
This article begins by saying:
“And now we know that topically applied Noni Fruit may be an important guard against premature skin aging. Indeed, the same powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds found in Noni Fruit and seeds that are so good for your cells are also beneficial for the skin. These antioxidants help retard the aging process of the skin cells; anti-inflammatory agents are great for reducing redness, roughness and chapped skin; and the emollients in Noni Fruit actually help to make skin smoother.”
The article includes lots of published research studies on how Noni Fruit addresses age spots, skin discoloration and wrinkles.
Here is one of the testimonials listed in the article
Eliminates Age Spots
"My skin looks 20 years younger! Hi, I live in Hawaii and I first found out about your Lavender Noni Lotion at the Made in Hawaii Festival in Honolulu. I've been using it for about eight years now. I’m 78 and my skin looks like I’m about 58. It's smooth and clear, and all those liver and age spots are all gone
—Lopaka Goodlow, Honolulu, Hawaii
It is not a miracle that you use our Noni Lavender Lotion and your spots are gone tomorrow. It takes time to build new skin. But applying daily and regularly, we have found that generally in 2-6 weeks the age spots, etc. fade away.
There is a great section in this article about published research and the anti-wrinkling properties of Noni Fruit.
Love the skin you're in!
