Noni Tree Info
I had some requests regarding the Noni juice, so I added a link and here I am copying some information from another website http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0FKA/is_2_64/ai_83033013 (the Polynesian Power Plant) (Hier ein deutscher Link: http://www.noni-saft.cz/):
"The new noni
Noni is one of the most widely used herbs in Hawaii, second only to aloe vera, according to a 1999 survey on complementary medicine use in Hawaii carried out by researchers at the Department of Anthropology, University of Hawaii. Perhaps that is because noni is not a dietary supplement fad on the islands.
In Hawaii, noni is typically prepared by sealing the fruit in a glass jar and leaving it out in the sun for hours, or even weeks. During the fermentation process, it loses its odor and taste of the fresh-ripe fruits. The strained juice ferments into an alcoholic beverage and is taken as a general tonic.
The most common traditional use of noni in Hawaii is for treating cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure. Its popularity in the 1990s led to its promotion for everything from kidney disorders to hypertension. This, in turn, led to a scarcity of trees -- even private yards were stripped of their fruits overnight."
