Photo: Noni Tree with Fruit

Aloha Kakou. What a beautiful summer we are having in Hawaii Nei. Even with it being a little warmer than usual this summer, there’s no place I’d rather be.

I am so excited to share my newest obsession of this summer. Now, if you live in Hawaii you’re probably well aware of this amazing fruit. But in the 12 years that I have lived in Hawaii, I have never really delved into it, until now. It’s absolutely a miracle food to me and I can’t get enough. Ok, have I piqued your interest? Well this incredible fruit is… noni!

The more I learn about noni the more I love it. Did you know that noni…

  • Is known as the “pain killer tree” and may help to alleviate headache, joint, and arthritic pain.
  • Contains substances believed to balance mood.
  • Is often used as an immune booster.
  • Is rich in nutrients and phytochemicals for healthy skin and hair.
  • Contains ingredients believed to fight cancer.
  • People have found that it helps with cholesterol.
  • Is often used to aid in digestion and relieve constipation.
  • Contains antioxidants.

All of these are incredible reasons why I can’t get enough of noni these days. I have been taking Puna Noni’s noni supplements. I have also been using their liquid noni in my smoothies. Noni has such a strong smell, and some people are not able to stomach it because of this, but these ways of taking it are perfect. I have also been using the Puna Noni shampoo and conditioners, and they are incredible! Puna Noni mixes noni with natural aromas from orchids, coconuts, plumerias, tuberoses, and mangoes to make the best smelling products ever! I love the coconut and tuberose lotions; they are my favorite!

Anyhoo, I just wanted to share with you a little about noni and perhaps you’ll try something new too. Please visit any of our team members in our Wellness Departments for guidance to the wide variety of noni products that we carry. I would love to hear about what you try and how you like it, or perhaps you can share a noni recipe you make at home. 

Wishing you a fabulous summer!

Aloha Nui, Mama T
