Aging can be frustrating, there’s no doubt about it. Things don’t work the same way they used to, injuries are slower to heal, and it gets harder to build muscle and burn fat. At the same time, your skin changes, your hormones change, your gut changes...and the consequences of the choices you made when you were younger become clear.
But aging is only frustrating if you feel like you’re helpless in the fight, and you are anything but helpless! We’re still only just beginning to understand the role our diet choices, activity level, and mental stimulation play in aging, but it’s clear their impact is major.
Particularly with regards to diet, new information is coming in all the time, including about an unusual Polynesian superfruit with the ability to turn back the clock on aging. Here are just a few of the health benefits raw non-fermented noni fruit has for seniors.
Restores and Revitalizes Skin
Building and maintaining healthy skin takes a lot of nutrients, and noni is packed full of exactly the building blocks your body needs to do so. Among these essential nutrients is anthraquinone, a compound which boosts collagen production (click to learn more). Noni also contains vitamin C and many other antioxidants which help repair and prevent sun damage.
- Fades out age spots & skin discoloration due to sun damage
- Restores youthful, firm skin
- Fills in fine lines, wrinkles, and even stretch marks & scars
- Improves skin texture & brightens complexion
- Provides relief from chronic skin conditions like psoriasis & eczema
How to Use: Apply Noni Lavender Lotion to the skin daily, and supplement with a daily dose of Noni Fruit Leather. You may also use Noni Lavender Lotion or our Noni Aloe Bio Bandage as a more intensive face mask treatment. Great for faces, hands, and any other areas you’d like to firm and tighten.
Reduces Risk of Chronic Disease
Today countless Americans are plagued by the family of related diseases now known as the “Western Diseases.” These diseases, which include diabetes, heart disease, and arthritis, are all closely related to diet and inflammation levels in the body. Noni’s powerful mix of anti-inflammatories, antioxidants, and antimicrobial compounds make it an important raw food for seniors to supplement their diets!
- Reduces inflammation throughout the entire body
- High antioxidant count neutralizes free radicals
- Regulates blood sugar levels and lowers blood pressure
- Improves health of immune response
- Supports gut biota by feeding the good and killing the bad
How to Use: As a daily preventative, take one 2x2 inch piece of Noni Fruit Leather daily. To treat existing chronic conditions, take 2-4 pieces taken spaced out through the day. Ramp up your dosage gradually to find the amount that works best for you.
Speeds Healing Process
The compounds that make noni so effective at repairing skin and preventing disease also help your aging body heal more quickly from injury or overexertion. In fact, I hit my head a few months ago and got a pretty good cut and concussion, but I healed much better than my doctor expected! Must have been the noni! It also contains a powerful, side-effect free, addiction-free painkilling compound called scopoletin.
- Repairs skin, bones, muscles, and joints
- Relieves inflammation and joint destruction
- Eliminates pain throughout body
How to Use: Apply Noni Lavender Lotion topically as many times per day as desired for pain relief. If the area of concern has no broken skin then you may instead use the IcyHeat Noni Lotion but please refrain from using on sensitive or damaged skin areas. To address the underlying inflammation and damage, also take Noni Fruit Leather daily.
Boosts Mood and Energy Levels
Finally, that same compound scopoletin has an impact on your mental health as well. Scopoletin binds to the neurotransmitter serotonin to keep levels elevated. Serotonin regulates mood, sleep, hunger, temperature, and more, so it has a big impact! This is one of the first benefits most people notice after starting to take Noni Fruit Leather.
How to Use: All you need to take advantage of this benefit is one 2x2 inch piece of Noni Fruit Leather each day.
