On a family trip to Bora Bora last summer I came across one of the most bizarre looking and contrary smelling fruits, Noni. It was planted everywhere on the hotel grounds. The fruit ripens post plopping on the ground where it then sits, and sits, and sits. Traditionally, the whole Noni fruit is packaged into a jar where it ferments in direct sunlight. After passing through a strainer a few times, it is bottled and ready to drink.
As it turns out, Noni is powerful stuff. The earliest of Polynesian explorers brought this fruit with them to boost their immunity while traveling from island to island. Thinking of myself as a Tahitian warrior of sorts, I became hooked. Admittedly, Noni juice is not the most scrumptious of juices (it tastes like a strong cheese). However, the health benefits I have experienced make the once daily shot well worth the initial dislike.
Noni juice is not only an immune booster, but it also aids in digestive function. Not to mention it has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, and anti-inflammatory properties, too. Noni juice is my kickstart to super power-dom. CAPOW!
