Noni Juice Benefits - Without the Hype!

The supplement industry likes to constantly move from miracle food to miracle food. You've probably read things about mangosteen, acai berries, hoodia, goji berries, and thelmak root, each claiming to be the biggest and best thing for health since we learned to walk upright. Now they've moved on to Noni juice benefits. That's not to say that Noni juice (or any of the other products mentioned above) are bad for you. To the contrary, all of these products have extensive benefits...but we've gotten tired of the hype, particularly when it comes to the former. First of all, Noni (also called the Great Morinad) is a tree that grows on a lot of South Pacific and Polynesian islands. It's originally native to Southeast Asia, and can handle a wide range of soils. It flowers and fruits all year long, and the fruit is very pungent smelling as it ripens - it's sometimes called the 'cheese fruit' because of this. The fruit pulp is strained to remove the seeds and used for a lot of Indonesian and Polynesian cooking, and Noni juice benefits are well known in traditional Asian medicine. Noni itself is a fruit juice. It's high in vitamin C and it has a number of compounds that are very high in antioxidants and phytochemicals, roughly comparable in dosage to an ounce of grape skins. Also, a glass of Noni juice has slightly less calories than a glass of orange juice. So, each glass of Noni juice benefits you with vitamin C as well as important antioxidants but with fewer calories than either orange juice or the equivalent amount of whole grapes. Now, these compounds all have benefits, they all exist in other food products. The specific Noni juice benefits come from the fact that you get them in one dose with fewer calories. As to the actual health benefits? Well, there's a laundry list to work from: First of all, like all foods high in Vitamin C, Noni has a noticeable impact in improving liver function and protecting the liver from damage. Similarly, it helps the body create more T-Cells and is a good immune system booster. There is anecdotal evidence from Linus Pauling that large doses of Vitamin C can also act to help ward off viruses. The antioxidant compounds within Noni juice are the same ones that have been proven to help cardiovascular health in lab mice and lab rats; they're also in the general category of 'toxin removers' that help eliminate free radicals, one of the things that promotes aging in the human body. Because Noni juice has both anti-oxidants and a decent amount of fructose, it's got the same "wake you up and clear fatigue" benefits that a lot of the 'energy drinks' on the market do. (Fructose is the most easily absorbed sugar; getting fructose and anti-oxidants at the same time helps the absorption process go more quickly). Related to this, it appears that Noni juice (like a lot of other fruit juices) triggers serotonin release in the brain, making it a mood elevator. In the end, Noni juice's benefits are substantial, and it's a good supplement. It's worth adding to your diet, but it's not an excuse to avoid your doctor, nor is it something you should over consume. It's not the secret of eternal youth; it's just a good dietary supplement, and given its benefits, that's enough. Article Source:
