What on earth does a small fruit grown only a few places in the world have to do with your diabetes?
Noni is praised for many things, used for centuries by the native Polynesian and Hawaiians as a traditional solution for many health problems. Not only is it known for its high nutrient content, containing antioxidants, vitamins and minerals among some 165 beneficial compounds, but this amazing little fruit has also been shown to also help regulate the body’s blood sugar levels.
In studies of native populations, it was found that regular intake of raw noni fruit was helping the native people to stay blood sugar healthy. Another study of the morinda citrifolia (noni) root itself found that one of the extracts showed a significant reduction of the blood glucose levels. Learn more about these studies here.
As a traditionally used solution for the native populations, finding and eating fresh noni isn’t a problem for them. They have an abundance of the ripe fruit at their fingertips! But for the rest of the world, getting fresh noni is quite the problem. Noni begins to ferment within 6 to 8 hours after being ripe. And once it starts to ferment, it starts to lose all those beneficial compounds, enzymes and antioxidants.
