Wait, What’s Noni?
Noni is a south seas fruit that might not look familiar to you. You’ll never find the fresh fruit in your grocery store because it has absolutely no shelf life, starting to ferment within 6 to 8 hours after ripening.
This is a shame, because noni is one of nature’s most powerful foods for healing! It’s been used for thousands of years to help address and prevent countless ailments, from inflammation to diabetes to arthritis. Originally used by ancient Polynesians as a raw food with 165+ beneficial compounds in the pulp of the fruit which are now being studied by modern science, trying to unlock what exactly makes noni such a potent a healer.
We know for sure that raw non-fermented noni pulp has more antioxidants than even the most potent berry or pomegranate — learn more — and a compound called scopoletin, which kills pain, enhances mood, and more. You can learn more about scopoletin and the other beneficial compounds in noni fruit, click here.
In general, by combatting inflammation and free radicals in the body, noni helps fight against the family of diseases known as the “Western diseases.” Learn more by clicking here.
So Where Can I Get Noni?
If you don’t live somewhere you can forage for noni fruit, you’ll have to buy a processed noni product. But not all of these are created equal! Most noni products come in the form of either a juice or a dehydrated powder. Through fermentation and pasteurization, both of these methods destroy the vast majority of the beneficial compounds in the raw pulp of the fruit.
This recipe is a nutritious, delicious way to get your daily dose of noni. It’s especially great for those who haven’t adjusted to the flavor of noni yet.
