For those of you who are or have been fans of the Victoria’s Secret fashion line, chances are you’ve probably heard of Australian supermodel, Miranda Kerr. (If you haven’t, then after reading this I suggest you look her up! She’s wonderful!) Despite her success as a world-renowned supermodel in the lucrative fashion world, Miranda has recently taken it upon herself to give back a little; that is, to take the time to create an all organic skin care line known as Kora Organics. So, what does Miranda Kerr and Kora Organics have in common with the South Pacific? For starters, it’s the ingredient used in Miranda’s products: Noni Fruit, otherwise known as Morinda Citrifolia. Though relatively unknown to most of the United States and Europe, Noni Fruit is grown in a range of tropical locations from the Hawaiian Islands to Polynesia as well as Australia. Unlike many other fruits, the Noni fruit is unique in the sense that it can be applied to nearly every ailment imaginable; from facial blemishes and acne to cardiovascular and urinary tract issues. (Miracle fruit - woo hoo!)
One of the reasons for the Noni fruits versatility stems from the fact that is provides the best source of proxeronine; a compound that helps utilize proteins and provide energy to our system. Proxeronine is in fact, so important that without we would be at risk for a multitude of diseases and health problems. (So bottom line: if you have a terrible immune system like I do, use it. It helps.) As Miranda also advertises through her products, Noni is also especially vital to skin rejuvenation and general skin health! (Boo-ya!) If you are interested using Noni fruit to better your overall health, I would recommend Organic Tahitian Noni Juice though I’m warning you, the taste is extremely bitter. You can probably find it at your local health food store. I also recommend drinking 1 fl. oz first thing in the morning before eating anything, though sometimes I mix it in with organic kefir, aloe vera juice and a little flax seed oil to create a highly nutritious and filling breakfast smoothie. So for those of you with acne/black head/large pores, I’ve found, for me at least, that Noni works as both a topical as well as a morning beverage and supplement. In just a week of using it I found my skin to be smoother and far more even toned then previously. And, on an even greater plus side, it helps prevent gum disease, diabetes, constipation, heart disease and urinary tract infections.
How magical. Thanks, Miranda.
