Noni Health Terms
What noni fruit lacks in visual appeal, it makes up in health benefits.
Throughout our site you will find us touting the remarkable benefits and the powerful, naturally occurring chemical components that make up our top-quality Noni Fruit Leather, Noni Lotion, and other noni fruit products. But we think the history of this amazing plant deserves a little attention of its own.
Morinda citrifolia is the scientific name of this attractive tropical plant that first arrived in the South Pacific through the colonization efforts of the ancient peoples the Marquesas. They relied on the fruit for both nutritional value and for its natural healing properties.
This incredible plant is the one we’ve chosen to base our lives around here at Hawaiian Organic Noni. The pulp of this fruit has incredible health promoting and pain relieving properties, whether eaten or applied to the skin. Noni fruit was eaten every day to promote overall good health, wellness and energy. Noni fruit was traditionally used fresh, raw and unfermented. We follow that tradition today by dehydrating the pulp at a low heat that prevents fermentation and which leaves all the beneficial compounds and enzymes intact so you receive the full potency of the raw fruit.
Today, we know the science behind the effectiveness of noni fruit. The natural enzymes in raw noni fruit include one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants on earth. Hawaiians have used noni fruit as a natural remedy for skin irritations for centuries. During WWII, soldiers were introduced to noni fruit as sustenance, but traditional healers utilized the root, stem, leaves, and flowers of the noni fruit, as well as the raw noni fruit pulp. The antioxidants in noni fruit have a variety of health benefits, including:
- Supports healthy immune function and response
- Soothes and calms skin irritations
- Promotes Relief for Sprains, Bruises, Stiffness, and Inflammation
- Promotes clear, healthy looking skin
Today, research has identified the 165+ beneficial compounds in raw noni fruit pulp that are health promoting. Noni fruit contains vital micronutrients, including natural antioxidants, soluble and insoluble fiber, essential fatty acids, and countless other vitamins and minerals, which work together to promote good health.
