Medicinal NONI fruit is available in Belize, grows here.
The NONI fruit in Belize
I´ve seen the NONI fruit at the Macal River market in Belize on a Saturday morning. Not knowing what it was, never bought any. They are few in number anyway. My understanding of the NONI is it is a medicinal plant.
You know this has to be true, because it smells and tastes bad. As a youngster you learn that lesson quick. Anything that tastes and smells bad is a good medicine.
The fruit is good for treating a wide range of ailments. From TB, back pain, asthma, head lice, poultice heals sores and broken bones faster, abcesses, vitamin deficiencies, constipation, gastrointestinal, menstrual, urinary problems for women, hyperactivity, burns, diabetes, infections, etc.
contributed comment:I seen "NONI" growing on Caye Caulker at the new condos right there beside Popeye's on the beach. The thing grows everywhere and sells in its "concentrated form" for US$20/quart...in Belize City. ( $40 Bz a quart for the juice - WOW! Orange juice on Caye Caulker, or watermelon juice sells for $6 bz a quart.
Another added comment and recommendation:
Have a friend who has had several back surgeries & arthritis in the spine; she swears by it and drinks it sort of like a tonic.
