Tree of Health:Pasteurisation of Noni Juice!

Pasteurisation is a highly contentious issue among many sections of the 'health aware' community. However, pasteurisation is standard practice in the fruit juice Industry. The high sugar content in most fruit juices results in natural fermentation activity. Pasteurisation arrests this activity as well as the multiplication of yeasts and moulds that are attracted to a sugar environment.

Noni fruit is a low sugar fruit with anti-microbial properties. However it is still subject to natural fermentation and other biological activity if unpasteurised. This is noticed when PET bottles of unpasteurised Noni juice get that strange 'blown' look.

Tests have shown that the important polysaccharide compounds decrease over time when Noni Juice is unpasteurised. This is probably due to the fact that the sugars are being 'consumed' by the biological active bacteria. Studies by Dr Furusawa (Univ of Hawaii) have shown that the antitumour potential is concentrated in the high molecular polysaccharide compounds of noni juice.

At Tree of Health, we pasteurise our Noni Juice into glass bottles in the same operation. This reduces the possibility of 'recontamination' of the juice with airborne yeasts and moulds.. Noni Juice that is bottled in plastic or PET bottles suggests that the Noni juice is unpasteurised, as PET bottles cannot handle high temperatures.

Tests conducted at Southern Cross University's Centre for Phytochemistry and Pharmacology have shown that pasteurisation doesn't have an effect on Noni's anti-oxidative capacity. As Dr Lesley Stevenson from SCU explains, "The fact that pasteurisation doesn't affect its activity is a positive finding, because it means that noni both retains its biological efficacy and is also safe for consumers."

Who should take Noni?

To name just a few,

  • People with digestion and elimination problems
  • Retired people who are looking for "more pep in their step"
  • People recovering from trauma, or illness (such as glandular fever)
  • People suffering fatigue and tiredness
  • People looking to boost their immune system

Quantum Physiques: Body Recompositioning!

If you want to lose fat then you need to alter the composition of your body; not just 'lose weight'. If you diet and exercise just to lose WEIGHT then you will probably lose muscle and fat and wind up LIGHTER, but NO LEANER than you started!

The answer lies in looking at the problem the other way around. If you are 30% bodyfat then you are only 70% muscle*. That's just simple math. If you want to get down to 20% bodyfat then you need to get up to 80% muscle*. Whether you gain or lose weight is irrelevant. Its the ratio of fat to muscle that determines if you are LEAN.

Your diet is what determines your weight. Your strength is what determines how much muscle you have. And fat is just that portion of you that isn't muscle. Therefore, if you want to have as little fat as possible then you need to have as much muscle as possible. That means you need to exercise to get STRONG while eating as little as is reasonable for you.

Females in particular are often afraid of 'building muscle' for fear of looking 'bulky'. But if you are dieting to lose or maintain weight then the additional muscle will be replacing fat making you leaner and smaller.

So for body recompositioning, while exercising for fitness and flexibility is good for you, it is not relevant to getting lean. Irrespective of your age or sex, to get lean the absolute best choice of exercise is strength training with weights.

For more information on how you can use weights and diet to control your body composition go to or visit Quantum Physiques at 29/25 James Street, Fortitude Valley. Ph 3252 2100. or

*the term 'muscle' has been used as a synonym for 'lean mass' for simplicity and brevity

Stress + Relaxation = True Recovery

For every time in stress, you need a recovering time in relaxation

Here is a subtle and often misunderstood fact about stress: For every period of stress in our life, you need a corresponding period of relaxation, just to maintain your health. To manage stress effectively, you can’t go directly from a stressful situation to normal life without spending a time of stress-free relaxation. If you neglect the relaxation stage, you will accumulate the effects of stress until they begin to do very serious damage–physical, emotional, and spiritual. more

Laughter is the best medicine!

A panda walks into a cafe orders a sandwich, eats it and then draws a gun and fires two rounds into the air. "WHY"? Asks the astounded waiter as the animal moves towards the exit."It's in my nature" replies the panda tossing a wildlife manual over his shoulder as he leaves "Look it up."

The waiter turns to the relevant page and sure enough finds the explanation " Panda, large black and white bear-like mammal, native to china. Eats Shoots and leaves"
