What is noni juice?
Noni juice is a tropical drink derived from the fruit of the Morinda citrifolia tree. This tree and its fruit grow among lava flows in Southeast Asia, especially in Polynesia.
Noni is a lumpy, mango-sized fruit that is yellow in color. It’s very bitter and has a distinct odor that is sometimes compared to stinky cheese.
Polynesian people have used noni in traditional folk medicine for over 2,000 years. It’s commonly used to treat health issues like constipation, infections, pain, and arthritis. Today, noni is mostly consumed as a juice blend. The juice is packed with potent antioxidants and may provide several health benefits.
What is Arthritis?
The word ‘arthritis’ means inflammation of the joint. Swelling, redness, heat and pain are the signs of inflammation. Rheumatism means disease marked by inflammation and pain in joint muscles or fibrous tissue.
The term ‘arthritis’ is generally used to cover most inflammatory diseases that affect the spine, muscles, tendons and the bones, as well as the joints.
There are more than 140 different types of arthritis. The most common type is osteoarthritis. Almost half of all people over the age of 60 and virtually all over the age of 80 will have osteoarthritis. It occurs as a result of mechanical breakdown in the structures affecting the joints. This happens most often in the large weight bearing joints – the knees, hips and spine. It often occurs in the hands, but rarely in the feet or ankles apart from the big toe. Except as a result of injury or stress, osteoarthritis seldom affects the wrist, elbow, shoulder or jaw.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a result of changes in the body’s immune system. For reasons not fully understood, the body’s immune system attacks its own organs, in this case the tissue of the joints. This auto-immune reaction causes inflammation of the joints. This causes an over-production of synovial (joint) fluid which, combined with the inflammation, causes the joints to become swollen and painful. If the process continues, damage to the cartilage and other soft tissue can cause joint deformities. Rheumatoid arthritis does not only involve the joints – it has other features, often described as “flu-like” symptoms. These are called systemic features which include tiredness, lack of energy, loss of appetite, inability to sleep, perhaps some weight loss and a low fever.
The benefits of noni juice
While searching for food, people of long ago found that some foods had specific properties of relieving or eliminating certain diseases, and maintaining good health. It was the beginning of herbal medicine. The same story occurred in Polynesia. Among the medicinal plants discovered by the ancestors of Polynesians, noni is one of the traditional folk medicinal plants that have been used for over 2000 years in Polynesia. It has a broad range of therapeutic and nutritional values.
The number one complaint from those who suffer from arthritis is pain. Noni has been used for thousands of years to treat all kinds of causes of pain, without the side effects of conventional medicine. “To take medicine only when you are sick is like digging a well only when you are thirsty — is it not already too late?” This proverb suggests that prevention is more important than treatment.
But it is never too late to enjoy the health benefit that taking a daily dose of Noni juice gives you. With the correct diet, exercise and by drinking Noni Juice daily, arthritis pain can be managed to an acceptable limit.
