Benefits of Noni Juice

Natural products are the real treasure. Herbal fruits, shrubs and leaves are used since time immemorial to treat various ailments. Noni fruit, a gift of nature is one such treasure which has been used by the people of Pacific Islands to cater to their health needs for thousands of years. Noni is a unique tropical fruit that is grown in the Pacific Islands. It is known to the Pacific Island people as a beneficial food. Usually it is taken as a drink to enhance bodily function and support overall good health. It is widely known as the “Aspirin of the Ancient”. It's been successfully used for over 2,000 years in Polynesia, China, India and elsewhere and grows best wherever there is pollution free volcanic soil.
Botanically the fruit is called Morinda Citrifolia. It grows on a shrub type tree and the size of the fruit is about the same size as a medium avocado pear. The skin has warts on it similar to a pomegranate. The shrub shows fruit some 10 months after planting. It reaches maturity in about 18 months and then yields between 4 to 8kg of fruit every month, all year round.
Noni fruit juice is a natural food so it falls in the category of health drinks. It helps in weight loss, decreases stress and increases overall feeling of well being. The healthful benefits of Noni fruit juice are backed by the collective voice of generations; the confirmation of scientific research and the enthusiastic loyalty of consumers all over the globe.
Our inner well being enhances our outer beauty. To maintain our inner health, Tahitian Noni Fruit Juice (Morinda Citrifolia) can be of immense help. It is a remarkable, natural liquid diet supplement. The ancient Tahitians revered and benefited from all the elements of this natural product—its fruit, leaves, and seeds. It was a pillar of the Tahitian culture as it helped them to sustain life and restore lost balance.
So this natural wonder product widely known as Noni fruit juice has undoubtedly blessed generations of people throughout the regions where it has grown and now it is gradually getting global recognition for its extraordinary benefits.

Stretch Marks

According to,

Stretch marks are a normal part of puberty for most girls and guys. When a person grows or gains weight really quickly (like during puberty), that person may get fine lines on the body called stretch marks. Stretch marks happen when the skin is pulled by rapid growth or stretching. Although the skin is usually fairly elastic, when it's overstretched, the normal production of collagen (the major protein that makes up the connective tissue in your skin) is disrupted. As a result, scars called stretch marks may form.

If you're noticing stretch marks on your body, you're not alone. Most girls and women have stretch marks, which tend to show up on the breasts, thighs, hips, and butt. Many women get them during pregnancy. And while they're more common in girls, guys can get stretch marks, too.

People who are obese often have stretch marks. Bodybuilders are prone to getting stretch marks because of the rapid body changes that bodybuilding can produce. Stretch marks also may occur if a person uses steroid-containing skin creams or ointments (such as hydrocortisone) for more than a few weeks, or has to take high doses of oral corticosteroids for months or longer.

Same thing happened to me. I started having stretch marks on my behind when I hit puberty.
Also because I have gained weight and now I'm loosing weight.

Nowadays I look for cream or treatment to reduce it or maybe even to eliminate it.
There's cream from Activa, the price is Rp 340,000. It's sold in Guardian or Century Pharmaceutical Store.
I was looking for the one from The Body Shop. I had to wait for one month until it's available.
The product is Body Focus, price is Rp 299,000. It has products for cellulite too.
I'm using it now, the beauty consultant said the result can be seen after 4 weeks of use.

We'll see how it's working.
