So we have recently come across an interesting fruit here on Maui. Its history is rich and varied. It is called Noni. And it goes back as far as 2,000-3,000 years. Ancient Polynesians knew this tree as “The Tree of Life” and is very treasured as a healing tonic. It has a slew of health benefits that are used on ailments that range from cough, nausea and sprain, to bone fractures, dislocations, skin disorders, hypertension, stomach ache, diabetes, loss of appetite, urinary tract ailments, abdominal swelling, hernias, and vitamin A deficiencies. And many more!!!
It is highly regarded in the Hawaiian tradition. There is a ton of intriguing info out there on Noni. But be cautious of using any sugary, fruity noni concoctions. The healing benefits are in the bark, leaves, fruit and 100% juice of the Noni.
We actually went through the entire process of picking, fermenting and finally tasting the Noni. A process that takes 2 months! We had to share this most fascinating tropical fruit. Thanks to our friend Troy for letting us pick from his tree! 🙂 Mahalo! And enJOY~
