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 of French Polynesia. 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 healing and pain relieving properties, whether eaten or applied to the skin. Noni fruit was eaten every day as a natural preventative to keep themselves healthy and prevent illnesses. The 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.
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 preventative health care and a natural remedy for cuts and other 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:
- Immune booster helps prevent common illness
- Facilitates healing for many skin conditions, including abrasions
- Helps relieve sore muscles
- Preserves youthfulness and wards off skin aging
Today, we know that it’s the 164+ beneficial compounds in raw noni fruit pulp that actually do the healing. From antioxidants to antimicrobials to beneficial enzymes, noni fruit packs a powerful punch against many different ailments.
