The ancient Hawaiian healers gave it the
name Noni. The Noni plant also goes by the name
of the Och plant in India, Nonu in Samoa, Nono in
Tahiti, Nhau in SE Asia and Cheese Fruit in Australia.
Noni is nutritious and was a dietary
staple in some ancient cultures. References to Noni
date back many centuries. According to historians,
the Noni plant was considered sacred. Medicinal
use of the Och plant is mentioned in ancient Sanskrit
The Noni plant is native to SE Asia
and was introduced to the Polynesian islands through
the migration of natives. The Polynesian’s
knowledge of the Noni plant and its uses has been
handed down through generations, and has prompted
many medical researchers to investigate and isolate
the beneficial ingredients in Noni.
The Noni plant grows primarily through
the South Pacific, but grows best in the mineral
rich volcanic Ash of the pristine Hawaiians islands
where it has been treasured for thousands of years.
The Kahunas or traditional medicine men have used
this plant and its prized fruit for a wide variety
of health problems.
