USES & BENEFITS:
Noni has been used for centuries to clean the colon. Having a clean colon improves absorption of nutrients from food during the process of digestion. The consequent health benefits of an improved digestive system are numerous. (We will discuss this in due course).
Noni fruit provides about 150 nutraceuticals ie it is a food with health and medical benefits that include disease prevention and treatment. Much of its health benefit occurs at the level of the blood cells which then results in visible health benefits. For instance, it is rich in antioxidants which improve cellular health. In turn, this boosts immunity, can fight cancer and other microbial health risks. In fact, many commercial supplments and other health products are now including noni for these reasons. People who have suffered structural irregularities in their blood cells have even reported a visible difference in live blood analysis. Noni is adaptogenic. This means that it take a personalized approach to regulating life systems of each person to create healthy balance. For instance, it is useful for regulating abnormal blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Furthermore, it is said that people can expect an elevated feeling of wellbeing and an energy boost. Regarding harmful side effects, when taken in suitable health circumstances, it does not appear to have adverse effects. However, due to its high levels of potassium, noni juice may may pose health risks for people who suffer from kidney ailments and or need to follow a potassium-restricted diet.
YOU WILL NEED:
- Noni fruit (note that the noni fruit yields juice that is roughly 1/10th of weight of the fruit)
- Jar(s) with a lid (the wider the opening, the better)
- A Strainer
- 2 months
- Pick the fruit from the tree
- Wash the fruit with water.
- If you pick them firm, they will usually have no smell. Their skin should no longer be green. Instead, the noni fruit should have a milky off-white or cream (not green) color. You will need to leave them in a cool, dark place until they ripen. They may take about one week or less to ripen fully.
- You will know when noni fruit is ripe because it will be very soft and have a strong odor. Some people liken the smell to rotten cheese. It may even be possible to see some of the dark seeds through the translucent skin and flesh of a very ripe noni fruit.
- If you pick them ripe, be careful not to damage the delicate noni skin and flesh when washing it with water --
- Pack the noni into a jar
- Be sure to securely close and label the jar with the date
- Leave the jar in direct sun light for 2 months
- During this period, the fruit will shrink while releasing a transparent, dark brown liquid
- Strain the liquid
- The remaining pith may be used as fertilizer or compost. The seeds may be used to grow a stronger plant than would result if you used a cutting.
- As an option if the taste is difficult to endure, add a sweet juice like raspberry for instance. Of late, we use black current juice. Do not dilute the noni juice too much. An acceptable ratio can contain 2 parts or more of noni juice and 1 part of sweet juice.
- Take about 1 ounce each morning on an empty stomach. Consider taking noni juice routinely. Many people do this to maintain a clean colon and enjoy the other health benefits
- Since the medicinal properties are released after fermentation, it is not worthwhile eating unfermented noni fruits, especially when they are still green.
The fermented noni juice tastes like a very fruity vinegar
The smell of the fermented noni juice is many times milder than the unfermented noni fruit.
