In this article, I will tell you about my experience with Noni(Morinda Citrifolia), and I will also share six incredible benefits of drinking noni juice.
My journey with Noni began many years ago, after being introduced to the fruit by a friend. At the time, he was making his noni concoction to cleanse his body internally. Instantly I was intrigued and wondered how I could also make my special blend one day.
An interesting thing happened after that first encounter with noni. I would often see it in many places I went to, especially in coastal areas.
I decided to learn more about this wonderful plant and how I would benefit from consuming the beverage made from its fruit.
A Little About Noni
Noni juice is made from the fruit of the Morinda Citrifolia tree, more commonly known as noni. This tree grows in tropical climates and is often found in countries, such as; the Polynesian Islands, India, Southeast Asia, and also the Caribbean. It will survive in almost any region that is warm.
The noni tree is an evergreen tree that produces fruit throughout the entire year. Making it very sustainable, and reliable.
The fruit in its immature state is green, but as it ripens it becomes whiter in color. Once it is fully ripe the smell of the fruit is very cheesy, quite penetrating, and it’s also bitter.
I won’t pretend that noni is the best tasting drink around, especially for first-time consumers. It surely is an acquired taste. As the adage goes, “things that are good for you rarely taste good.”
However, I’ve had it many times throughout the years and find it quite enjoyable. Especially knowing the benefits I get from consuming it.
Traditionally, the juice is made by placing the fruits in jars and allowing them to pasteurize in the sun. Becoming fermented after a few weeks. And just like wine, it becomes tastier and more potent as time goes by.
How Does It Work
Noni contains a compound called proxeronine, which the body uses to make xeronine. Xeronine is produced naturally within the body. However, due to many factors such as stress and improper diet. Our bodies don’t produce sufficient amounts of xeronine.
Xeronine is responsible for the intercellular communication, and biochemical reactions within the body. So Noni provides the necessary building blocks for the body to create sufficient xeronine.
Because of the anti-oxidative potential of noni juice. It neutralizes free radicals and their harmful effects. Noni juice provides antioxidants such as vitamin C, E, Beta Carotene, which improves the body’s ability to fight various forms of cancer. It also stops tumor growth in the body.
Rejuvenates The Skin
Noni Juice contains anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties that help to keep the skin clean and give it a natural glow. The juice also has a lot of fatty acids that help to nutrify the membranes of the skin, improving elasticity.
Researchers from the University of Illinois College of Medicine conducted a study on heavy smokers. In which they were given noni juice every day for thirty days. After the period, they proved that noni juice had significantly lowered LDL(bad) cholesterol and increase HDL(good) cholesterol.
Due to the high levels, anti-oxidants found noni juice. The body is protected from free radicals that could weaken the immune system. Noni juice increases the blood’s ability to ingest and destroy bacteria and cell debris, thereby strengthening the immune system.
Increases Physical Endurance
Noni juice has been proven to increase physical endurance. Because of the high levels of antioxidants help to decrease muscle fatigue. Therefore allowing you to get more done physically, whether through exercise or everyday activities. I can say from my own experience that noni juice is like a tonic, and it gives energy to the body.
Reduces Joint Pain and Improves Mobility
For many years noni juice has been used for its pain-relieving qualities. Various compounds in the fruit help to reduce pain and increase the overall range of motion and flexibility.
I remember introducing noni juice to a lady who suffered from serious knee pain. She started drinking noni juice, and after a few weeks, I asked her how she felt.
She immediately paused, and with a look of amazement, she bent her knees and said she couldn’t feel any pain. It happened so smoothly that she didn’t even realize the pain was gone.
While there are many brands of Noni juice available on the market, these two highly trusted brands that provide quality juices. They are Virgin Noni Juice, and Tahitian Noni Juice by Morinda.
- Virgin Noni Juice- This brand is 100% pure with no additives, or water. Undiluted and absolutely nothing added, very potent.
- Tahitian Noni Juice- Tahitian Noni Juice by Morinda is another great brand that has been around for quite some time and is well known. It contains blueberries, which give it a more bearable taste.
Noni Juice is very beneficial for the body. Regardless of the brand you choose, or if it’s homemade. The noni fruit is a superfood that has been around for many years, helping many people to overcome their health issues.
Some people may notice a difference immediately, while others may take a little longer. It varies depending on your current state of health.
Nature provides the solutions we seek, to live a more balanced life. Noni is one of her many gifts to mankind.
