in belleza •  last year 

Greetings friends of steemit.


Every day I will publish a fruit, vegetable or vegetable, highlighting its properties and benefits for health and beauty. In this way we will know more about the natural benefits that we can count on daily if we know more about the fruits, vegetables that we consume or that we see in the market and that we have not yet tested. In today's delivery I will talk about ...

Noni (Morinda citrifolia) is an evergreen tree from the hottest areas of Southeast Asia. Of its fruit, yellow or green and oval in shape, a juice is obtained, known for its therapeutic properties.

With its dense consistency, dark brown color, strong smell and sour taste, noni juice is actually one of the most beneficial in the world. The fruit is rich in vitamins, minerals, oligoelements, enzymes, plant sterols and amino acids. Many of the properties of Noni are attributed to the enzyme xeronin, an important component of the cell membrane that exerts a regenerative and repairing action on damaged cells and regulates the function of proteins.


Against fatigue:

The juice gives energy and fights the weakness, because the enzymes that it contains favor the assimilation of amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Noni also stimulates the secretion of endorphins and serotonin, improving mental efficiency and mood.

Against insomnia:

It stimulates the production of melatonin by the epiphysis, improving the quality of sleep.

Eliminates pains of various types:

Some researches have shown the juice's capacity to relieve pain, effective against headaches and muscular, articular, menstrual and digestive pains and against gastrointestinal disorders.

Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory:

Noni regulates inflammatory processes. Some trials have found an improvement in the conditions of patients suffering from tendonitis, arthritis and bursitis. Eliminate and fight against many types of bacteria, such as E. Coli.

Against cancer:

Research suggests that drinking 1-4 g of Noni juice a day may reduce the risk of cancer in smokers. The presence of damnacantale, an alkaloid that increases the immune defenses, stimulates the production of macrophages which seems to have an inhibitory action in some precancerous cells.

Cardiovascular health:

Its intake has vasodilatory effects that result in the regulation of blood pressure. The consumption of this fruit regularly helps the body to reduce bad LDL cholesterol and increases the levels of good HDL cholesterol. According to research, it has been shown that Noni juice is also effective against high blood pressure, scopoletin, a substance that promotes the production of nitric oxide, acts on blood vessels by increasing their elasticity and promoting the decrease of the pressure.

Protects the liver:

Noni has useful properties in protecting the liver from the main diseases that threaten it, thanks to the presence of scopoletin.

Benefits for memory

Noni juice can have beneficial effects on memory problems. Studies have shown how juice intake promotes blood flow to the brain and brings benefits to memory.


Regular consumption of noni juice improves insulin sensitivity and stimulates glucose absorption.


The juice of noni accelerates the healing of wounds. In fact, its intake seems to improve the function of collagen and hydroxyproline.

Immune system

The polysaccharides contained in the noni juice stimulate the activity of white blood cells. The scopoletin present in the juice has antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties that help protect the body even more.


Noni juice for the skin

Apply Noni juice to treat skin inflammation, minor burns and minor abrasions. Not only that, but Noni also contains vitamin C and selenium, two antioxidants capable of counteracting the action of free radicals and cellular aging.


Better if you consume Noni juice with continuity for at least two months and better if it is fasting to avoid disturbances with other foods. You can mix the Noni with other fruit juices (like cranberry, apple and grape), in order to improve the taste, which, by its nature, has a bitter taste and an unpleasant odor. The juice should be taken on an empty stomach to avoid interference with other foods. After drinking Noni, it is important to wait at least half an hour before eating, as digestion may compromise the absorption of the active ingredients contained in the juice.

It is not recommended to drink Noni juice with milk, coffee, tea or alcohol, as these drinks are likely to limit the correct absorption of substances contained in Noni by the body. In general, it is advisable not to combine it even with tobacco smoke and guarana, to avoid excessively stressing the metabolism.

I hope you like this initiative ... you can make suggestions and propose fruits and vegetables for the next delivery.
