ALL ABOUT THE NATURAL NONI FRUIT

Written by Stephen Huggins 


Nature is full of amazing and wonderful plants. One of my favorites of all time is the exotic Noni!

WHAT IS NONI FRUIT? 

The Noni fruit is a fruit-bearing tree belonging to the coffee family. It is known by the scientific name of Morinda Citrofolia and is a native species found throughout Southeast Asia and the Pacific. Morinda Citrofolia is known by the names of the Indian Mulberry, Great Morinda, as well as the Cheese Fruit!

Morinda Citrofolia certainly looks a lot like a Mulberry although it’s significantly larger. 

It is wildly abundant all over the big island of Hawaii, and just like mulberries will grow all year long and are consistently in season!

HOW IS NONI FRUIT MEDICINAL?

The Noni plant has been used in traditional medicine on the tropical islands of  Hawaii and Tahiti for centuries.

All parts of the Noni fruit are edible! The fruit is sometimes fermented to make a strong health tonic, or you can just eat it raw! The Indigenous people of Hawaii and Tahiti say that the fermented juice of Noni is best taken to restore the body back to balance such as when you have a cold, headache, fever, or are feeling weak or tired.

Noni fruit is also reported to boost mood and increase mental clarity and focus!

Either way, you can benefit from the amazing nutritional and vitamin content of Noni Fruit. 

I strongly believe eating Noni fruit gets you in tune with your primal roots. The unique taste and texture of Noni fruit are so delectable, it reminds you as if you’re in the original Garden of Eden tasting a forbidden fruit!

The fruit is ripe and freshest when it falls to the ground. Check for insects and give it a quick rinse in the ocean before digging in! 

It smells quite stinky like blue cheese, but trust me it’s an acquired taste that is delicious!

It provides a wide array of nutrients such as:

  • Selenium 
  • Xeronine
  • Glycosides 
  • Scopoletin 
  • Limonene
  • Anthraquinones 
  • Vitamin C
  • Niacin
  • Vitamin A
  • Calcium 
  • Iron & Potassium

HOW TO USE NONI FRUIT:

Noni is generally good to consume when you are already healthy to keep your vitality high or when you are sick as it acts to powerfully boost the immune system.

The dried leaves may be consumed as a tea to aid normal digestion, balance blood sugar and detoxify the body. Noni tea tastes quite pleasant and in no way takes on the powerful flavor of the fruit. The tea relaxes the body. You can pick as many leaves as you want from the Morinda Citrifolia plant, as new ones will regenerate swiftly. 

The medical compounds in Noni are great for the skin when you ingest the plant. People will sometimes bathe in bathwater filled with soaked Noni fruit as this is said to promote relaxation and blissful peace!
