Turn Back Time With Noni!
Thursday August 18, 2016
Age spots. What a nuisance! Nobody likes them, just take a look at the market for products claiming to eliminate them, it seems like there’s a new one every week! But do any of them actually work?
To answer that, let’s first talk about what age spots--also called liver spots--actually are. A sign of aging, essentially an age spot is merely discoloration of the skin, called hyper pigmentation. There are a number of factors that determine the color of your skin and hair, but excessive sun exposure and aging can lead to abnormalities in the enzymes within the skin, leading to freckles and age spots.
Learn more about the process here.
So what’s your best bet for turning back the clock on those pesky age spots?
There’s one hidden gem that might be able to help you. Raw non-fermented noni fruit pulp. For thousands of years South Sea Islanders have used fresh raw noni for countless ailments and conditions. Yes, even for the skin. But is that wisdom on their part, or just tradition?
Recent studies have shown that the South Sea Islanders were onto something. Numerous scientific studies have been conducted on noni fruit, but in relation to the beneficial effects noni has on skin cells, research has shown that Morinda Citrifolia (noni fruit) has a significant positive effect on the regulation of the bio synthesis of collagen and glycosaminoglycans. For a more in depth look at this study, click here.
So what does that mean for you?
It means noni can have that same rejuvenating effect on your skin! With over 165 beneficial compounds in the solid pulp form, along with powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, noni does wonders for the skin. But, there’s a problem. Most of us don’t live in Hawaii or Polynesia, and noni is a unique fruit in that it starts to naturally rot and ferment mere hours after being picked.
The most common solution is to make a fermented noni juice, a process in which the pulp of the fruit is thrown out. The pulp is where the majority of the beneficial compounds are and many of which are not very readily water soluble. Just like when you go from an apple to apple juice, you lose over 50% of the nutrients of an apple.
The same is true of noni. Furthermore, the fermentation process creates alcohol and further destroys what nutrients are left within noni juice. Plus you can’t exactly put the juice on your skin and expect it to help!
A better solution for your skin:
Our Organic Noni Lavender Lotion is perfect for helping you fight the battle against age spots, in fact for many skin irritations, even wrinkles! This lotion is made from raw noni pulp, dehydrated at low temperatures. This process stops the fermentation of the fruit and locks in the beneficial compounds, antioxidants and vitamins without damaging them.
Note: It takes time to build new skin. It’s not some kind of miracle product! Apply daily, and regularly. We’ve found that this leads to better results--in four to six weeks most customers see a significant improvement in their skin tone and texture.
When it comes to staying on top of aging and keeping your skin looking as healthy and young as you feel, organic raw non-fermented noni fruit pulp is a wonderful aide. And with our Organic Noni Lotions, it’s never been easier to keep your skin vibrant and healthy every day!
