Noni | Morinda citrifolia
Origin: Southeast Asia
The noni plant, morinda citrifolia, is related to the coffee plant. Noni provides antioxidant support and strengthens the immune and digestive systems. Perhaps most interesting of all is noni’s ability to counteract anxiety and depression!
The Real Good Of Noni
What are the benefits of the superfood noni?
- Antioxidants—Noni contains antioxidants called flavonols, well-researched antioxidants that demonstrate healing outcomes in laboratory studies. Studies demonstrating the antioxidant properties and immune boosting power of noni may show promise for conditions ranging form cancer to cardiovascular disease.
- Potassium—Noni contains more potassium than banana by weight. The mineral potassium helps to counteract the effects of sodium by maintaining blood pressure and regulating fluids and minerals in the body. Potassium also helps muscles contract properly and is a reliable remedy for muscle cramps!
- Digestive Support—One study using noni juice revealed that noni phytonutrients slow the release of sugars into the bloodstream. Additionally, noni juice may stimulate the release of digestive enzymes, improving both digestion and nutrient absorption.
- Mood Boost—Noni stimulates the production of serotonin. Seratonin is a neurotransmitter that naturally improves mood and decreases anxiety and depression. If you’re feeling stressed or anxious, turn your mood around with noni.
How can you harness the power of noni to boost your antioxidants and potassium, improve digestion and reduce anxiety?
