Question: Dear CAOH Doc,
Can you tell me what kind of plastic are used for your Noni Juice. You’ve explained that they are “frosted” to reduce the UV radiation exposure and resulting “deterioration of the juice.” However, I would like to know just how stable this plastic is (say compared to glass bottles), and the contaminants and rate of contamination you expect from the plastic leaching into the juice over time. I appreciate the lengths you have gone to in order to provide a pure, organic product, for maximum health benefits, so I am hopeful you can provide for me a complete understanding of the container you have chosen for storing and distributing your Noni product
Answer: Dear Greg, We only use medical grade plastic bottles for our products. Our bottles will not leech into acid or basic solutions and perform as well as glass in regard to inhibiting product oxidation. Our will tolerate temperatures way above boiling and are practically unbreakable. Believe it or not, plastic is more expensive for us to buy than glass. The draw back to glass is that it breaks and the extra packing is very expensive also. With the amount of products we ship around the world we would be replacing quite a lot of broken bottles and/or spending a fortune on Styrofoam (not very earth friendly). We use a major company’s product with the highest reputation in the medical and consumer goods industry. All of our bottles are sterilized before any juice is put in them.
As a FYI: The majority of fruit juices you see packaged in glass are not done so because the manufacturer wants it to look good, it’s because the product is heat (hot) pasteurized. The bottles are then hot filled, put into boxes and stacked on pallets. There the box acts like an oven and the juice further cooks (in the residual heat), for sometimes up to 24 hours. This process can only be done with glass. If you tried this with our plastic bottle it would expand when hot than slightly collapse in on itself as it cooled down. It would now have an hourglass shape and the label would start to have problems too.
Heat pasteurization and glass packaging is done solely to increase the shelf life of the product, period. It’s a sad but true fact that the majority of juice manufactures who use this method make claims about their product from “raw ingredient data.” The finished product is not a good source for their wonderful marketing material, because the product inside is now dead.

Q: How do I take your Total detox? There was a number of drops indicated in each bottle. Do we have to mix all of them in a glass of juice?
Secondly, I was diagnosed last year for a bacteria in my stomach that causes hyper acidity. As of now, I limit myself to drink one glass a day for citrus family juices or coffee to avoid pain in my upper abdomen. Can I use the detox product?
A: Dear Rudy,
Yes, all the drops can be mixed in a glass of distilled water, preferably. You can mix it in juice if you must.
I don’t see any reason why you couldn’t use this product.
As far as hyperacidity goes, 99.9% of those who experience ulcers, IBS, GERD, heartburn, or gastritis are chronically dehydrated. Yes, you may have H. Pylori bacteria but dehydration was most likely there first. Coffee, tomato, milk, and alcohol in any amount are no-no’s. Vitamin A, L- Glutamine, carnosine, zinc, and acidophilus are great too for what you have going on. 64oz of distilled water is a must.
In my opinion, “the little purple pill”, Zantac, Tums, etc… only mask the symptoms leaving the underlying problem untouched. Hyperacidity is not the problem it’s a symptom or result of chronic alcohol consumption, chronic stress, chronic dehydration, or all the above.
I hope this helps.
