What finer advert for noni juice
Over 2,000 years ago, the first Polynesians travelled from South East Asia across the Pacific Ocean bringing with them the strongest herbal tonic in their island culture - the Noni or Indian Mulberry 

The Noni (Morinda Citrifolia plant to use its "proper name") grows well throughout the South Pacific region, but flourishes in the rich volcanic soil in the pristine tropical paradise of the Cook Islands.  The fruit is organically grown and processed in a traditional manner to extract a pure quality juice with no additives.

Traditional native healers throughout the Paciific used Noni to treat: arthritis, bowel disorders, allergies, stomach & respiratory disease, bacteria, infections, growth, mouth ulcers, burns, stings, fish poisoning and many other chronic illness.  It was also used to reduce swelling and relieve pain, the Noni tree sometimes being known as a Painkiller tree or Headache tree. 

Well, that's what it says on my bottle!

You are recomended to take 30 to 40ml before meals.  And you can take it "as is" or "with your favourite juice".   It's definitely an acquired taste!   The mamas above who sold me mine are certainly a fine advert for it.
