New Website - Same Great Health Benefits
Aloha from all of us here at Hawaiian Organic Noni. As you know Valentines Day just happened. This is an easy holiday to remember around the Farm as it is my wife's Birthday. Valentines Day is a big day around here with lots of new orchid plants given and presents. Richele, my wife, has a great knack of putting orchids in the crouches of tree branches and they grow!!
New Website is Up!!
The main topic this month is the New Website and the new face lift plus new features. The folks at AllProWebTools.com spent a lot of time and creativity overhauling our old site’s layout. The whole goal was to make things more simplistic, easier to navigate and adding some new features available now with web technology.
SOME THINGS TO NOTICE:
Home Page has a new Header Photo of Noni Leaves from a tree on our Farm. In the photo is our Logo, easy to find Toll Free Number for ordering or questions and the icons to order whether creating a new account or login to your existing account. The little white shopping bag on the far right shows your current shopping cart items.
Forget Your Password? When logging into your existing account and you have forgotten your password – simply click on the green “forgot password”, enter your email address and your old password will be sent to you.
What I really like about the new site is the larger printing and colors. The top toolbar in orange has only 6 Topics and the search box (instead of 9 before): Home, Shop, About Us, Media, Testimonials, Contact Us and Search
The New Revolving Banner as only 4 articles revolving each with new photos from here on the Farm. The photos feature Richele, Jaro (hard working Noni Farm worker) and myself. The articles featured are about Antioxidants and our Noni Fruit Leather, Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and Pain relief.
Under the revolving banner are three easy-to-find boxes featuring: Buy more and Save – showing the discounts available when ordering larger quantities
Rejuvenating Farm Tour – brief description of our free 2 ½ hour “Organic Farm & Wellness Tour” and Google map with directions. We only do tours on M,W,F at 10 am by reservation only – max. of 20 people. Free!! Please come visit us if you are ever on Kauai.
Noni in the News – lists more articles from the Doctors Prescription for Healthy Living and Newspaper articles.
Below the boxes are photos of our featured products and by simply clicking on any photo will take you to a larger photo of product, pricing but most important are the icons at the bottom with Overview, What it does, Ingredients, How to Use and Reviews from customers.
And lastly at the bottom of the Home Page is a very friendly cat looking at you and reminding you “Pets Love Noni Too!” Clicking on this take you directly to all the Pet products - Our Farm dog, Bhakti, demanded this be here!!
We are all very pleased with the new Home page and the clean, simple look which will hopefully make it easier to find information about our organic Noni and what it may do for you.
A COUPLE OF OTHER NEW FEATURES AND LAYOUT
Over the years, several people have called saying they had problems finding certain products. So the new site has 3 ways of finding products and information about each product all on the Home Page.
Featured Products at bottom of Home Page
Click on “Shop”- in top toolbar and a page opens with all products listed individually with pricing and information.
Three easy ways to find our organic Noni products and information at the tip of your finger!
TOP TOOLBAR ICONS:
Click on “About Us” Brief history about our 37 acre certified organic farm and processing facility with a photo of my wife and I.
Click on “Media” This is one of my favorite new features or layout. We have categorized all the published information into three groups.
Research and Articles – all the articles from the Doctors Prescription for Healthy Living and Research (What’s in Noni)
Blogs – many different blogs covering a wide variety of subject matter on Noni. Such as “Why whole fruit and not juice”
Newsletters – a list of all the past newsletters but with a brief description of main topic for that month. Check out the April 2014 Newsletter – Earth Day is Here which is all about organic farming and things you can do in your own garden.
Added bonus under Media is the “Gallery”- icon with lots of current photos of Noni, the Farm, Farm Tours, Albatross and a beautiful sunset on Kauai. This Gallery will be constantly updated with new photos – my daughter, Lola, has another new job!!!
And lastly, at the bottom of the Home Page are all the social media icons to join us on: Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, Pinterest, Instagram Gram, Etc.
I hope you take some time to “surf” our new site and give us some of your comments. Do you like the new look and do you think it is easier to find things?
Above is a bee on a noni flower! Did you know that the flowers grow out of the fruit?
NEW EQUIPMENT ARRIVING ON TUESDAY
Our new Douglas Pan Washer machine is due to finally be delivered this Tuesday from Florida Many months ago, Lola and I attend the Pack West Expo for new equipment in Chicago. The first of our purchases is going to be a great addition to our processing facility. The Pan Washer will allow us to expedite the washing of 1400 trays at 180 F. We have new mixing and processing equipment on order that will all help with the automation of the processing in our certified Kitchen on the Farm. We are excited!!
In the January Newsletter, I briefly talked about the Double Whammy effect of raw Noni. Research has shown the pulp of Noni to be the #1 Anti-inflammatory and the #1 Antioxidant both of which prevent illness and diseases. The pulp of the fruit has over 165 beneficial compounds that Polynesians and Hawaiians learned that if eaten everyday they can maintain good health with none of the inflammation diseases which are defined as:
-High blood pressure
So is it the 165 compounds found in Noni or the research finding Noni to be the #1Anti-inflammatory and #1 Antioxidant? For me, not even considering all the compounds in the raw pulp of Noni the fact that it’s naturally high anti-inflammatory and high antioxidant levels attribute to Noni’s ability to fight illnesses and prevent diseases. The bottom line, “the proof is in the pudding”. If you do not taste the pudding, you will never know how good it tastes. Similarly, if you do not use our organic Noni products your will never know the amazing benefits.
I love getting emails, phone calls and folks on the Farm Tour sharing your personal experiences. It is very, very rewarding but it is not any miracle we have created. It is the inherent ability of Noni pulp as raw food to heal the cells of the body.
So you can see why we do what we do with Noni – keep it as pure to the whole fruit as possible with out destroying the benefits through fermentation, etc.
Raw food Noni to feed the cells of the body – the cells take in Noni to feed the body good health.
Keep smiling, laughing and healthy!!
