As with many other things that we have limited scientific backing for, the claims of the benefits of noni have been scoffed on for the most part; but the wave of health consciousness that has blanketed the generation in recent times, have sparked enough interest for Dr. Neil Solomon to assess the claims and record his findings in The Noni Phenomenon.
This is not for the faint of heart though (ducking my head and wearing a sheepish grin). Organic noni juice is an acquired taste (I can’t say I am there yet myself ) It is not called the cheese fruit for nothing; it actually tastes like a cross between Limburger cheese and blue cheese and is rather pungent. It is for this reason that I’ve been ignoring the trees in my back yard but even I can attest to the fact that this thing works!
Unless your nose and taste buds are quite adventurous this is not necessarily the type of juice you would look forward to after a 9-5. Those of us who do incorporate it in our diet do so out of necessity because we are aware of the medicinal uses and health benefits.
If you are not an all organic enthusiast, this is not a problem though, since the more commercial forms of noni are combined with fruit flavors to make it more palatable.
Health Benefits of Noni
We are of the school of thought that what you put in is what you will get out, in other words, good nutrition is the most important part of any HHJ regimen. Our hair thrives when we put in the antioxidants, minerals and vitamins* that are crucial for growth and development; hence a look at the health benefits and nutritional value of noni is highly recommended.
The good news is that a daily intake of two to four ounces of noni can go a far way in enhancing your overall health so you can see the benefits in your beauty regimen.
