Another product I saw at the OTOP promotion show, the show where local producers make new products and promoted them to Thailand and worldwide. This one from Nongkhai province in Isaan.
This is Seven Naga Brand Health Drink, made from Noni Fruit, with Black Galingale. Both with traditional medicinal uses. A drink made from Noni Fruit is commonly used to aid womens menstral cycles by increasing blood flow. Black Galingale is supposed to aid the libido, I'm not sure how, perhaps by aiding blood flow too! You drink two tablespoons a day, so a bottle lasts a long time.

Every morning I drink a large fruit smoothie, made with pomelo, frozen peaches, frozen blueberries and frozen strawberries, seedless guava, tangerine and pomegranate juice. It's my morning anti-oxidant health drink and three of my 'five-fruits-a-day' requirement! I think I might add this Noni Juice drink to my morning drink. It has a sort of sour plum taste about it, and sourness is missing from my morning fruit cocktail.
