I first heard about Noni when I went to a homeopath specialist for my panic attacks. I had a lot of things going on at the moment and I am also a bit hypochondriac. So as you can imagine I wasn’t very trusting when it came to drinking juice for my spiritual and physical imbalances.
But I took it anyway because it had a good, sweet taste. I had tried a lot of different other things until then, so one more wasn’t about to kill me. After a bit of research, I discovered that Noni is, in fact, a very interesting fruit that has a rich and long history behind it.
Where does Noni come from?
Noni is believed to come from the French Polynesia or Southeast Asia and it has been around for more than 2,500 years. This fruit has been considered a miracle food due to its therapeutical benefits.

The Noni Juice – between health and scam
The internet is filled with different types of information, therefore one must not take for granted everything they read online. And as a personal comment, one should not try to diagnose or cure themselves by searching symptoms online. For a simple ‘headache,’ Google gives you the most macabre results.
Personally, I have tried Noni for two months and I can say that it had certain effects on me. I felt more energized, more optimistic and my days were more productive than before.
Some studies support this state of well-being and show that it is safe to drink up to 750 ml of Tahitian Noni daily. But there are also others which suggest that Noni is nothing more than a cheap scam that is not FDA approved and which can in fact damage one’s health. This article doesn’t offer any accurate evidence to support its thesis, so it becomes a bit questionable. It does add a few statistics and big research names but no links that can be verified.
Thus, I believe that the success rate of this type of juice can be proven through the number of people who managed to improve their health by using this fruit or juice.
