Having spent a great part of my childhood and adult life living in Hawaii, I was exposed to the amazing benefits from noni juice from a very young age. I am not sure about its claim for curing cancer, but there are a ton of other things it has personally helped me with. If I got sunburned as a child, my mother would smear noni fruit on my skin and it would accelerate the healing. Same goes for any cuts or open wounds I had, the noni fruit acted as a wonderful natural antiseptic and prevented the cut or sore from developing a staff infection ( which is very common there). I started taking it internally when I was older ( could not stomach it as a child, the taste is really horrible) and reaped the wonderful digestive and cardiovascular help that it gave me. Noni juice also helped in really lowering my cholesterol. I still also like to apply it to my skin, but now more for it's anti-aging benefits.
