Noni, a cherished fruit of the South Pacific, has been used for natural healing for generations. It has a reputation for helping with all manner of ailments and addictions, promoting general good health, high levels of energy and well-being. It is said to boost the immune system and cell health, cleanse the body of harmful bacteria and purify the blood.
One of noni’s active constituents is pro-xeronine which the body makes into xeronine. Xeronine is an important nutrient which tends to be lacking in the modern diet. By consuming noni we can redress this situation. One of xeronine’s functions is to allow better absorption of amino acids such as tryptophan which makes serotonin in the brain. It is the pro-xeronine in noni which is so effective helping with addictions (more below). Music and laughter also help xeronine production. When under any kind of stress we need more xeronine. Noni gives us a bit of help. This noni powder is organically grown, sun-dried and powdered by hand in Bali. This retains the nutritional properties of the raw noni fruit, boosting the immune system, digestive system and general energy and vitality. This pack makes 4 litres of juice. Noni (Latin name morinda citrifolia) is rich in vitamins and mineral, contains all nine amino acids and supports the growth of cellular tissue and T-cells through the action of xeronine. The tree is believed to have originated in India and now can be found in the tropical islands of Bali, Hawaii and the South Pacific.
The pack makes up to 4 litres noni juice so is amazingly good value – and raw too! Just mix with springwater. Noni has a reputation for not being too tasty but we find this product delicious. This noni powder is delicious in raw chocolate, smoothies and desserts.
More about noni’s role in helping with addictions:
In many plants xeronine is stored for it’s nitrogen, clumped together with ‘molecular garbage’. The compounds formed are part of a class of compounds called alkaloids. Over 10,000 alkaloids are known to exist in various plants. These include nicotine, caffeine, cocaine, heroin and morphine. These alkaloids are completely inactive in the plant but because they resemble xeronine they are treated and accepted as xeronine by the proteins in our bodies. However our bodies adapt to these alkaloids by slightly changing the shape of the proteins so they will fit with the alkaloid being used rather than xeronine. Thus we become dependant on the alkaloid in question i.e. addicted. By using noni you can flood your body with xeronine, just like you originally flooded your body with the foreign alkaloid. By doing this you ‘re-addict’ yourself to xeronine and you can avoid all of the problems of withdrawal.
More about the feel good factor of noni:
Another very exciting application for xeronine is as a pain-reliever and an anaesthetic. Currently the most powerful pain-relieving drugs are foreign alkaloids like morphine and codeine. We learned earlier that foreign alkaloids are nothing but counterfeits of xeronine made for storage by plants. Therefore, anything that these foreign alkaloids can do, xeronine can do better and more naturally. Xeronine acts as a supreme painkiller because it works with endorphins in the body to numb pain and produce feelings of euphoria. Endorphins are the hormones that are responsible for producing good feelings in the body. They bind to certain proteins just like the xeronine does. When xeronine and an endorphin are bound to a protein, the xeronine channels the energy from the water into the endorphin and the endorphin creates a good feeling within you. Without xeronine, endorphins are useless. Xeronine also stimulates the body but without the draining effects of the counterfeit foreign alkaloids such as caffeine. The stimulative effects of xeronine could significantly improve athletic performance as well as increasing your ability to concentrate and think clearly.
All in all this is an amazing medicinal fruit and one which we are delighted to offer in it’s raw form.
