To understand the significance of noni, it is good to know the difference between common food plants and medicinal plants:
Food plants contain basic nutritional value for sustaining life – like apples, bananas, pears, oranges, etc.
So-called superfruits that might be new and exotic to us (many of which are represented as having ancient medicinal mystique such as mangosteen, acai, gac, etc.) are, in reality, simply food plants that are common fruits in their countries of origin.
Medicinal plants do more than just sustain you from day to day; they also help to improve your health. Noni is one of nature’s most powerful medicinal plants. It not only has a rich history as a traditional medicinal plant, but also provides real benefits that are proven by modern research that validate the ancient traditions.
