This medicinal herb, closely related to Noni tree, is a vining shrub native to Jamaica and other Caribbean Islands, southern Florida, South America as well as Central America. It is only occasionally found in the coastal hammocks (and rarely inland) of the central and southern peninsula of Florida.

It is a traditional folk medicine and the primary parts used as herbal medicine are the berries and root. The uses of Morinda royoc includes promoting vim and vitality. It can also relax certain muscles of the body such as the muscles of the lungs. As the name suggests, it is an effective remedy to strengthen and relax the muscles of the back and to promote healthy sex drive. A well know aphrodisiac in the Caribbean, some men testified that it acts just like horny goat weed. It can improve libido, sexual conditions and physical performance. Sexual conditions may include, erection problems, premature ejaculation, sterility and poor sexual performances. These are primary reasons so many men love this medicinal plant while they deemed it as a very potent tonic.

They say this is the ideal medicinal herb for having a strong and healthy back.

This plant with its beautiful white flowers and yellow berries repels people due to the unpleasant odor of the fruit. However, it is special in the eyes of butterflies and bees who are so drawn to it. It is also used as an ornamental plant. It blooms all year.
