Save Water! 9 Things You Can Do At Home

Water is one of nature’s most precious resource. Without it, nothing could survive. Many individuals don’t know much about water except it comes out of the kitchen sink or garden hose at home. We at Hawaiian Organic Noni would like to take the lead spreading the word regarding water conservation. Enjoy reading what we’ve learned about this amazing resource we can’t live without!

Fun Water Facts:

  • Without water, the earth would look like the moon.
  • All living things need water to live. People can survive up to a month without food, but only a few days (week at most) without water. An individual is recommended to drink six to eight glasses of water each day!
  • Our bodies are 70% water (of that percentage, 90% is the composition of our lungs)
  • Some of our favorite foods are up to 80% water (Ex. Apples, Pineapples, Corn)
  • Less than 2% of the global water supply is freshwater. Only 1% is drinkable.
  • On average, a person needs 5-13 gallons of water per day for basic needs.

Join the Noni Raw Food Movement

What is Raw Food?

Glad you asked! Going raw is about consuming unprocessed, unaltered, cold-pressed foods that are not heated/cooked above 115˚F.

What are the Benefits of Raw Foods?

1. Alkaline. Our body’s natural state is alkaline. Our blood supply needs to be alkaline constantly (PH of 7.3 ) for optimal health.
Did you know? Eating processed, sodium filled, GMO laden foods can off balance your body’s PH. Although one may not feel the immediately affects, this eating style can cause various health issues such as high blood pressure and diabetes
2. Enzymes. Although there are exceptions, most of the enzymes and nutrients found in raw foodare depleted when heated/cooked and processed.
Did you know? Foods are easily digested by the body when living enzymes are remained intact. When your body isn’t focused on breaking down the food you eat, it can focus on delivering all the nutrients to every system in your body for use.
3. Weight Loss. Chemicals in the food we eat (hormones, antibiotics, emulsifiers), have been linked to weight gain, diabetes, and other health issues.
Did you know? Raw foods are high in dietary fiber. This type of natural fiber can keep you more full longer thus helping you naturally eat less.
4. Healthy Skin. Your body naturally cleans and detoxes itself. Although liver and kidneys do an excellent job, your skin also takes part by sloughing off old skin cells revealing fresh new healthy skin cells underneath. Eating a raw, whole food, clean diet feeds your body from the inside out. Causing your skin to glow. Naturally.
Did you know? You really are what you eat. Your body reproduces cells, body tissue, bone, and heals wounds using the compounds found in the food you consume. Something to seriously consider when reaching for that bag of bon-bons.

Noni Numbers Equal Good Health!

When talking about the noni fruit and all of its medicinal attributes, experts throw around numbers and forms of measurement as a method to prove to the how very, very good for you the noni is (Which it is).
But, what do these numbers really mean?
If you don’t understand the numbers, how can you possibly choose the right form of noni for you and your family?
Wikipedia states that twelve hundred milligrams of noni holds an astonishing 9.8mg vitamin C, .048mg of niacin, potassium, as well as iron, vitamin A, calcium and sodium.
But how much is 1200mgs?
Sounds like a pretty big number, but actually it’s quite small, less than half an ounce. Remember that 16 ounces make one pound, the equivalent of 6 plums. Based on the estimate that one large noni fruit weighs roughly one pound, that means one pound of noni is a total of 453,592.37 mgs., which means there’s A LOT of vitamins and minerals in every noni.

Noni for Cramps

Prevent Muscle Cramps

Both the IcyHeat Noni Lotion and Noni Lavender Lotion are great for preventing cramps for all you hard workers and sports folks.
We have many athletes that apply our Noni Lotions before sporting events as an organic cramp preventative. Many years ago, the University of Hawaii basketball sports trainer - Melody Toth - conducted an experiment by having half the basketball team apply our Noni Lotion and half the team not apply the Noni Lotion before 2 hour practices. At the end of practice, she found that the players who had applied the Noni Lotion were not tired and had no muscle cramps! The players that did not apply the Noni Lotion experienced fatigue and cramping. She found our Noni Lotions to be an organic solution to muscle fatigue and cramping!!

Muscle Cramp Relief

You can use any of the Noni Lotions for pain relief. Most folks prefer the IcyHeat Noni Lotions (IcyHeat Noni Lotion or the newer IcyHeat Sports Formula) for pain and inflammation relief as the added menthol and camphor hasten the penetration and relief. On the farm, we use the Sports Formula IcyHeat quite often for tired muscles and cramps.

Noni Dosage Tips

Remember the effects of Noni are definitely dosage related whether internally using the Noni Fruit Leather or externally applying the Noni Lotions.

Recommended daily dosage rate for the Noni Fruit Leather.

On the back of every package it reads:
“As a supplement, a 2-inch x 2-inch piece per day. For chronic conditions: Two to four pieces per day”
This is based upon Research at the University of Hawaii for 8 years on terminally ill Cancer patients. In Phase 1 of the research, they were up to 40 times the daily dosage rate with not one negative side effect. They could not find a toxic level. However, they found that at two pieces per day, 24 of the 48 people in the study had no pain and at four pieces per day all 48 people had no pain. Different people have different levels of need based upon their size, chronic condition and how they assimilate the noni compounds.

Morinda Citrifolia (aka Noni Fruit)

Exploring the Fruit's Origins

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 and Noni Lotionproducts made from noni fruit (Morinda Citrifolia). 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.
These sea-farers were known to have utilized every part of the Noni plant for human consumption. They took the plants (Morinda Citrifolia) with them from island to island, and it is now eaten in raw and cooked forms by different people groups depending on cultural preferences.

What You Should Know About Noni Juice

Why not noni juice?

Organic noni has over 165 compounds that benefit the body. The many benefits to the human body include pain relief, faster healing, and improved cell functionality. Traditionally Hawaiians and Polynesians consumed noni as a preventative measure to boost the immune system, and to help keep themselves from getting sick. They ate noni as a raw fruit for maximum benefit.
Unfortunately, today many noni manufacturers create a much less potent product called noni juice, which is made through the fermentation process and discards the fruit pulp.
The potency is in the raw non-fermented pulp of noni. Harvested hard and white from the tree, the fruit ripens in 2-3 days to a soft translucent fruit much like a ripe tomato. Within hours of ripening, noni fruit begins to rot and ferment. The fermentation process creates alcohol and research has shown destroys all the beneficial enzymes and changes the chemical structure of the remaining compounds. All of the noni juices on the market are fermented, and therefore have a significantly reduced potency level and health impact on the body.
