From acia to pomegranate, it seems that the health industry is always announcing a new food that works wonders (though these foods aren’t new; they’ve been consumed for generations).
One of the latest foods that is receiving a ton of attention in the health and wellness industry is the Noni berry (though you may know it as the Indian mulberry, cheese fruit or wild pine.) This berry, which is a fruit that grows on Mornida citrifolia, an evergreen tree that grows on the tropical Polynesian islands – especially Tahiti – has been linked to providing a wealth of health benefits.
If you aren’t familiar with the Noni berry and its amazing health benefits, you’ve come to the right place! Keep on reading to learn more about this exceptional super fruit.
About the Noni Berry
As previously mentioned, the Noni berry is the fruit of a tropical evergreen tree. It is loaded with nutrients, including fructose, glucose, protein, vitamins C and E, several different B vitamins, as well as beta-carotene. Other health-friendly components of this berry include:
You can tell the Noni berry from other berries by its unmistakable bumpy surface. It is approximately the size of a small potato and it has an odor that some might consider unpleasing when it is ripe. When it is cut open, the flesh of the Noni berry is comparable to the consistency of cheese.
The Health Benefits of the Noni Berry
This tropical super fruit has long been used by Polynesians to treat a number of health conditions. Most notably, it has been used to treat the following:
- High blood pressure
- General aches and pains
Recently, a study that was conducted at the University of Texas found that the Noni berry contains resveratrol, which is a compound that is used for treating various types of tumors. Given this discovery, its use as a treatment for cancer is being deeply analyzed, as it can potentially destroy tumors and cure the effects of different types of cancers.
How to Ingest Noni Berry
Ingesting Noni berry is as simple as sipping the juice that is extracted from the super fruit. You can usually find these juices as a local health food or whole food store. It can also be found in dietary supplements, which can be taken on a daily basis.
Other methods for taking in the healing powers of the Noni berry include using topical gels, soaps and facial cleansers. If you use these methods, the components of the berry are absorbed through the skin and then spread through the bloodstream.
