Noni Fruit and Juice
and its Benefits

Every time something new comes along in the health food scene, there’s a huge buzz around the product with plenty of people opting for it and other’s condemning it as mere hype. It’s been the same with noni juice, which has become popular for those who are conscious about their health.

Noni juice is derived from the noni fruit, also known as the Great Morinda. This fruit is found in abundance in the Polynesian islands, Southeast Asia as well as Australia, but it’s juice is indeed a worthy discovery, one that has bettered the lives of many people. Scientists are constantly corroborating newer findings about noni with clinical studies and in depth research.

As a result of the hype around this juice, many people have tried to cash in on it and this has caused quite a few people to regard it as a high level MLM scam. However, this is not the case everywhere. Remember that there are people who have benefited from noni juice.

Actually, the way in which the juice is processed is of prime importance. This is because it loses its efficacy if too much heat is used, or if it is diluted. Some producers of noni juice use artificial sweeteners because it has a strong taste and smell and is not palatable. Some even use preservatives that does more harm than good. So before you go out to buy your juice, look out for the way in which it has been processed. Fresh noni is a richer source of nutrients than bottled juice, so keep that in mind before you buy it.

Finally, why should you drink noni juice? How can it benefit you?

  • It is known to be rich in phytochemicals that can help in prevention of diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart diseases, Alzheimer’s etc.
  • It can also help in improving mood and inducing sleep in those suffering from sleep related disorders.
  • Better skin, better hair and fewer allergy related reactions are what some of the users of noni juice are claiming.
  • It is known to have many therapeutic effects – antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, you name it, it does it!
  • Some people consume it to correct premature aging and build better bone strength.
  • One of the fewer known applications of it is that it has been known to alleviate burns. Freshly squeezed noni juice applied directly can help in healing burns to a great extent.
  • It has a few more external applications also. When rubbed on the skin, it can help reduce skin conditions such as eczema or ringworm. It can be used as a poultice and a compress as well. Some people even rub noni juice on their scalp for lustrous hair and better scalp health.

Most often you will find that the noni juice that you get in most health stores is reconstituted and not the real thing. There are some brands which give it to you as it comes and so, they can be a little hard to stomach because of their strong taste. What’s important is that it has all the goodness you need.

Concentrated noni juice has all these benefits, although you might want to know about some of the side effects as well. Noni juice when consumed regularly brings about a detoxification process in your body that may lead to a few side effects such as appearance of boils and pimples, foul breath, diarrhea or gas, headaches and joint pain. While these do sound discomfiting, they are apparently only a way for your body to get rid of all the toxins. Drinking plenty of water will help in flushing out those toxins more easily.

While there are many variants in the market, you might wonder if acquiring pure noni juice is difficult because of the price. Yes, pure juice is obviously priced higher because of the effort and time taken in processing it in the right manner. But irrespective of the price, here are a few tips to ascertain whether the noni juice you have is good or not.

  • Bubbles – Shake the bottle to see if bubbles form. If the bubbles dissipate quickly, it means that there’s a higher concentration of water than noni juice in it.
  • Color – When you shake the bottle, see if the color of the bubbles is brownish. This indicates purity.
  • Residue – Good juice always has plenty of residue at the bottom. Turn the bottle upside down and note how much residue is visible.
  • Taste and smell – Finally, observe the taste and smell of the juice. Noni is strong smelling stuff and it is definitely an acquired taste. If it has been flavored with other fruit juices, it might not be pure.

Those who swear by noni juice claim that there are plenty of benefits, but if you’re still a bit skeptical consult your doctor first before you start consuming it. This is, especially,

I have a real variety of patients who have benefited from Tahitian Noni juice, and it would seem to many people that something magical is happening here because it affects so many bodily systems. But there is a very scientific explanation for how something so simple, just a juice, can have such widespread effects.

Ancient manuscripts call the different glands in the body seals, and by a seal, we mean something which opens and closes. Ancient medical literature states that the glands actually operate according to frequency, a term which is becoming very popular these days in nuclear and quantum physics. The frequency of the glands was known thousands of years ago, but we have forgotten much of this information. In ancient terms, the pineal gland was called the sixth seal or sixth gland of the body. We have recently discovered that it stimulates two major hormones called serotonin and melatonin. The pineal gland controls the five other glands below it which are the thyroid which produces thyroxine to energize our cells, the thymus which protects you against infections and cancer, the pancreas which is involved with blood sugar and secreting the hormone insulin, the adrenal gland which responds every time you are under stress; and the first gland is the male and female sex organs and their hormones. Therefore restoring the sixth gland, the pineal gland, will have an impact on all those other glands and their functions in the body. When the pineal gland is at its peak performance, it turns a golden colour and emits a black juice as well as a golden oil. That black juice would be the melanin colour of the organs and every other area of the body which has a pigment.

It happens that Noni juice mimics the secretion coming from the pineal gland, and in fact acts as a precursor to it, building it up and allowing it to function fully. Noni juice has a black colour, very similar to the melanin that gives colour or pigment to each one of our organs. Every place our body contains this pigment will be affected by Noni juice.

The back of the eye has a black area called the macula which is pigmented with melanin. That is the area the light hits when your eye opens. Many people have difficulty with blindness because they no longer make that beautiful colour in that spot. We have noted the Noni juice makes the macula generate more pigment and the cells begin to return to normal, and the blindness reverses itself.

In the brain, that black stain is found in an area of the mid-brain called the substantia nigra, nigra standing for black. Diseases related to that area occur when it no longer receives pigment and begins to deteriorate. Diseases in this category are multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease. Appropriate function of the pineal gland is important in restoring those cells, and we are seeing patients reversing some of their neurological problems because the Noni juice is stimulating the production of chemicals essential to those areas of the brain.

The pancreas is also affected by Noni juice: the blood sugar and blood pressure begin to normalize. The pineal gland affects the different organs all the way down to the first glands, the male and female sex organs, and people are noticing for example that their prostate glands are beginning to shrink down to normal size once they have been on the Noni juice for a short period of time. Women who have problems with their uterus or with fibroids etc. are noticing that the fibroids are beginning to disappear, that their menstruation is beginning to normalize, they have less cramps and their bleeding problems become more in balance.



Dr. Gerson has practiced medicine in Manhattan for the last 15 years. He is uniquely educated, having received his M.D. from Mount Sinai Medical School in New York, and his doctorate in ayurvedic medicine in India. He is currently teaching our new medical doctors at some of the most prestigious medical schools in America about alternative approaches in medicine. Several months ago, he addressed the United Nations on "the state of herbs in the world today".

Several years ago, I was researching material for a book on the medicinal plants of India, and became interested in a family of plants known as Rubiaceae. Of particular interest was a plant known in Sanskrit as ach which was attributed special properties by ancient physicians. The fruit of this ach plant or Morinda citrafolia has a rich history in India where it has been used for tens of centuries in the system of medicine known as ayurveda. This holistic medical tradition was established in the north western part of India by a people called aryans who were reputed to be a rather cosmic civilization. Morinda citrifolia was especially esteemed by the ancient aryan physicians because it protected the skin from becoming dry and cracked from the sun. My investigation of the published scientific literature on Morinda citrifolia yielded more than 100 articles pertaining to this medicinal plant. I soon discovered that the original home of the plant was not India at all, but rather Polynesia, Micronesia and the Hawaiian Islands where it is known as noni.

I first investigated what was known about the compounds in the noni fruit. Not surprisingly I found that several important active constituents were already identified which had beneficial effects in human physiology. Among the most intriguing were the carotenoids, bioflavonoids and anthraquinones as well as several other unknown substances which according to their chemical structures appeared to be accessory activating factors.

At this point, I decided to take noni as a medicine on a regular basis myself. I had taken this direct experiential approach to learning about a plant medicine many times, as I had been taught to do in my training as an ayurvedic physician. It was late autumn, and although I was healthy, I was all too familiar with the pattern my physiology follows every year around this time. It always began with feelings of increasing stress, then bothersome skin eruptions, fatigue, mental irritability, bloating, constipation, and finally inevitably an upper respiratory infection, and it happened the same way every year. I reasoned that noni juice might confer some protective action against disease through its significant anti-oxidant components. In the past, I had consumed medicinal preparations hundreds of times with many of these same constituents without any appreciable effects. As it turned out, there was a marked difference in my health that autumn. I was distinctly more alert, more energetic, more balanced, my skin was glowing more than I could ever recall and my digestion was improved immeasurably. I attributed the benefits of noni to the interaction of the known components with the hitherto unknown components which perhaps work synergistically with all the other nutrients.

The second part of my research is known as ethnobotony, where we seek out physicians or native healers who may have extensive experience in using a particular medicinal herb, and ask them what they use it for, how they prepare it, how successful it is and obtain direct information about its medical usefulness from people who have used it over many many years. The third aspect of my research process involves a thorough search of the current scientific and medical literature to determine whether any of the constituents of the plant in question are known to possess biological activity that may help shed some light on its effectiveness for the treatment of a certain disease or diseases.

With regard to Morinda citrifolia, an interesting thing started to happen the more my research progressed. It seemed that the list of ailments for which noni was used medically just grew and grew longer than almost any other medicinal plant that I have ever encountered. I was initially overwhelmed at how many medical indications this single plant has had in the Pacific Islands and south east Asian literature.

A few of the medicinal uses are for digestive problems such as diarrhea, intestinal worms, nausea, food poisoning; respiratory problems such as congestive cough, dry cough, tuberculosis, cholera, infant chest colds and sore throat; cardiovascular problems, hypertension; inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, abscesses, mastitis, gout and other inflammatory joint conditions. It is a noted analgesic or pain reliever. One of the most common uses of noni has been in the area of skin conditions, being utilized for wounds, ulcers, abscesses, ring worm, boils, cellulitis, swellings, scalp conditions and sores. It has been used in the treatment of tumours and broken bones, jaundice and other forms of liver disease. It has been used to treat asthma and dysentery, hypercholesterolemia, menstrual cramps, gastric ulcers and diabetes.

Faced with such a diverse list of physiologically distinct conditions, the conventionally oriented physician might be tempted to completely dismiss these reports as unsubstantiated folk tales. We are conditioned to believe that any important medicinal substance should have one or at most two applications. How could one plant be used to treat so many pathological conditions?

To answer these questions, it was time to turn to the scientific research involving Morinda citrafolia. Research at the University of Hawaii's Biomedical Sciences Department showed that extracts of noni contained a naturally occurring component which activates serotonin receptors in the brain and throughout the body. Serotonin is a neuroendocrine compound which along with its receptors is found in high levels in the brain, the blood platelets and the lining of the digestive tract. It is well established that serotonin is an important brain neurotransmitter, and plays a significant role in temperature regulation, sleep, hunger and sexual behaviour. Serotonin deficiency has been implicated in a number of pathological conditions including migraine headaches, obesity, depression and Alzheimer's disease. Modern pharmaceutical medicine has had some success with the use of serotonin analogues in the treatment of certain diseases. I am sure many of you are familiar with the drug Prozac which is used to treat depression; another is used to treat acute migraine headaches. Both of these synthetic drugs specifically target and bind to serotonin receptors. The problem with both of these substances and with all synthetically manufactured pharmaceuticals which isolate one active ingredient is the great incidents of adverse side effects. Natural products like Morinda citrafolia in its unprocessed complete form do not generally have adverse effects. The presence of a wide range of other naturally occurring substances which are present in some way regulates and modifies its effects.

Research at the University of Metz in France, demonstrated the central analgesic activity of noni to alleviate pain of many types. Moderate doses of noni was measured to be about 75% as effective as an equivalent dose of morphine sulfate.

Since 1961, we have known that various parts of the Morinda citrafolia tree contains several different varieties of bitter plant compounds known as anthraquinones. Plants containing anthraquinones have literally been used for millennia due to their medicinal properties. Most noted are significant antiseptic (antibacterial) effect to disease causing bacteria in the intestinal tract. This compound is especially toxic to the pathogens Shigela and Salmonella. Anthraquinones are also particularly effective against many forms of Staphylococcus, a major cause of many skin infections which sometimes infect the valves of the heart. Furthermore anthraquinones in noni prompt the digestive secretions of the stomach and small intestines, stimulate bile flow and promote the activity of the entire digestive process. However, it is the activity of one specific anthraquinone, damnacanthal which has been shown in vitro to actually reverse cancer cell proliferation at the gene level. The research has demonstrated that one isolated component found in noni fruit turned off the signal for tumour cells to proliferate. The study was reported in 1993 from a very reputable laboratory in Kao University in Yokohama, Japan.

It was originally believed that one compound which had been isolated was responsible for all the many biological effects. The compound which has a chemical formula of C10H8O4 is known as scopoletin. Both noni and scopoletin are known to reduce blood pressure, have anti-inflammatory activity, exhibit antibiotic activity, antifungal activity and possess antitumour effects. Yet when researchers at the University of Hawaii tried to purify and isolate scopoletin from the rest of the noni extract, much of its activity was lost. In fact, both the biological effects and the serotonin receptor binding effects of the crude noni extract was lost upon purification of this presumed active ingredient. This leaves us the conclusion that other substances in noni must be present in order to produce its biological effects.

Noni has not been found to be harmful at any level, nor for any health condition.

Noni benefits, The Miraculous Fruit

Nov 2, 2011

Today you will learn about the noni benefits. Lately, I have been hearing about a fruit with a strange name which has revolutionized medicine and made miracles: Noni.

Noni originated in Polinesia, Tahiti and Hawaii, is being used for thousands of years in medical treatments by the people in these regions of the world. Moreover, in India noni is considered a sacred food and its name means “long life”. That is why is important to learn more about the noni benefits.

Noni benefits

Noni benefits

The noni fruit is of ovoid shape, yellow when it’s ripe and has a spicy-sour taste and pungent smell. Although not many people have heard about this fruit, it has been known and used for more than 2.000 years in traditional medicine as a remedy for many affections. Its existence and properties were mentioned since the year 1700 by the explorers and later by soldiers who arrived on Polynesian islands in the Second World War. Now are you interested in noni benefits?

Noni is one of the most special fruits in the world, as it contains substances which cannot be found in any other plant. It has been shown that noni contains over 150 biologically active substances (amino acids, enzymes, vitamins, mineralsm xeronine, proxeronine, scopoletina, damnacantal, etc.). Noni has in its composition 18 amino acids that contribute to the development of muscles and prevent their atrophy.

Scopoletina helps you maintain the balance of your organism, it has an adaptive effect, and it regulates sleep problems. Noni stimulates the formation of nitric oxide in the body, determines the dilation of arteries, reduces high blood pressure generally triggered by stress.

Other noni benefits 

One of the noni benefits is its Nitric oxide. It improves blood flow to tissues, has anti-thrombosis action, thereby it prevents heart attacks or strokes. Moreover, it has antioxidant properties and thus, it prevents cardiovascular diseases.

According to the researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago, the daily consumption of 30 – 120 ml of Noni juice reduces the risk of lung cancer among smokers.

The xeronine and proxeronine also have antidepressant action. These two substances accelerate the formation of endorphins, which induce a state of relaxation and well being. Also, these substances decrease the sensation of pain caused by arthritis and osteoarthritis.

What is even better is that this “drug” does not cause addiction. Xeronine triggers the anti inflammatory mechanisms in your body, it has anti allergenic effects and increases the resistance of the organism to bacteria and viruses. For this reason, Noni is recommended to people suffering from repeated upper respiratory infections.

Noni benefits conclusion

The American research conducted in the last 20 years on 20.000 Noni consumers indicate a 70% regression of cancer, 60% reduction in the risk of stroke, important adjustments in digestive and respiratory problems, a drastically reduction of stress and a boost for the immunity system.

In addition, Noni inhibits the formation of blood vessels that nourish the tumor tissues, having the capacity of increasing the synergistic action of cytostatics and interferon.

The single disadvantage of consuming Noni fruits is that they can induce constipation.

All in all, there is no reason why you should not eat as many Noni fruits as you can from now on. As we have shown above, Noni is a miracle of nature which can bring lots of benefits for your health.

This article has covered all the noni benefits but you may browse our website for more information.





This is a fascinating plant, demanding of our respect. Its prolific beauty, she bears fruit year if to say, "here I am, please use me." However, as you may already be aware, few of us are willing to make its intimate acquaintance. The aroma of its fruit is truly awesome, somewhat like bleu cheese. Some say "disgusting" or "horrid" or "stinks bad" or worse. And, it doesn't taste good either! Yet, it is well-known to be one of the main healers among the traditional Hawai`i medicinal plants. It is said that this plant food is to be used when we are feeling really ill or really old.

The noni, also known as Indian Mulberry, with the scientific name of Morinda citrifolia, is a small evergreen shrub or tree, usually less than 10 feet high, occasionally rising to 20 feet. The conspicuous large dark green shiny leaves are generally paired, except where forming fruit. Thick and oval in shape, these leaves are deep veined, short-stemmed and 8 inches or longer. The flowers form in globose heads, about an inch long and bearing many small white flowers. The flower heads grow to become mature fruit, 3 to 4 inches in diameter. The fruits resemble those of `ulu, breadfruit, only smaller. The surface is divided into somewhat warty polygonal pitted cells. The noni fruit begins green, turns yellow, and as mentioned, has an unpleasant, insipid, foul or fetid odor, especially as it ripens to whiteness and falls from the tree.

In the early morning, the best time to pick most plants, I have carried a gallon glass jar like the institutional ones for pickles, pule (prayed with) the plant, thanking it for its food. I picked the fruit at its yellow stage, filling the jar and capping it tightly. The jar is placed in a sunny spot, letting it set there for five days to a week or more, until the fruit turns to mush and sun-charged juices drain into the bottom of the jar. It is these juices that can be strained into a cleaner smaller jar, and then refrigerated until used.

Another method taught by Hawai`i's healers is to pick the fruit before ripe, letting it ripen within the home. When soft, place it in a blender with a little fresh water and make into a sauce. Then mash and strain through a sieve. This concoction can be refrigerated in a clean glass jar, and the person who wishes the medicine can take a clean straw and slurp two sucks from the jar, in the morning and in the evening.

As a medicine, the fruit and its juices have been used in the treatment of diabetes, heart troubles and high blood pressure, with different portions prescribed for different illnesses. In these days of ozone depletion, noni is useful in the treatment of skin cancers.

The juices can be diluted with clean water or a fruit juice such as apple, and drunk before meals and at resting periods. Treatment should always be at a relaxed time, not before going to work. It is good to seek the advice of a Hawai`i health practitioner before using any plant medicines. Noni is believed to have been brought here centuries ago by early Polynesian settlers, and is a native of the Pacific islands, Asia and Australia.

The late Uncle Harry Mitchell of Keanae, Maui, suggested using noni with garlic, both being great blood purifiers that enhance the immune system and cleanse bacteria from the body. He also mentioned boiling it for use with diabetes, and using it strained raw for heart problems and high blood pressure, as it is said to increase the flow of blood. Sometimes capsain (cayenne pepper) is added as an ingredient as well.

The young unripe noni fruit can be pounded thoroughly with salt and the mixture placed carefully on deep cuts and on broken bones. Sometimes the juice is squeezed out of this mixture, boiled and applied to the wounds. The ripe fruit can be used as a poultice for facial blemishes, rubbed until the oil disappears, and also to draw out the pus and core from an infected sore or boil, such as with a staph infection. In the old days, this was tied on with a bandage of tapa bark cloth. The dressing of noni could be reapplied more than once for difficult cases.

There are those who eat noni's fruit unripened, either as a food in times of scarcity, or as a tonic when needed. Other people make a tea using the leaves of this plant. The fruit can be used in recipes as a reputed remedy against tuberculosis, arthritis, cancer, rheumatism and the changes of old age. The leaves and bark of the stem can be pounded and strained, resulting in a liquid drunk as a tonic or for urinary disorders, muscle and joint pain. The juice of the fruit is applied to the hair to rid it of head lice, uku, followed whenever possible by a fragrant shampoo of `awapuhi kuahiwi or coconut water.

Other uses for this ancient Polynesian plant: the bark yields a red dye, while a yellow dye can be prepared from the root. Both colors were use to dye the tapa cloth of the chiefs of ancient Hawai`i. Noni is a kinolau of the god Ku.

Noni is a valuable plant to have nearby the home of anyone wishing to utilize the many natural healing properties of this remarkable life sustaining plant. Cultivation is either by seed or cutting.

Noni Juice from Hawaii

Hawaiian Herbal Blessings

Hawaiian Noni Juice


The Pharmacologically Active Ingredient of Noni

by R.M. Heinicke, University of Hawaii

In The Bulletin, April 1972, Maria Stewart described how the Hawaiians solved many of their medical problems by drinking infusions of the fruit of the noni tree (Morinda Citrifolia , Rubiaceae). The missionaries, who frequently had to minister to the body as well as the soul, were impressed with the efficacy of these options. Yet identifying the pharmacologically active ingredient of noni has been difficult - for an understandably good reason. The active ingredient is not present in the plant or fruit! Only after the potion has been drunk does the active ingredient form. Sometimes!

My search for the ingredient which is active in noni began with a series of studies on the pineapple plant. Since about 1972 I had been attempting to identify the unknown ingredient in "bromelain" which gives crude preparations of this enzyme their potent pharmacological properties. (Sometimes!) After many discouraging years of research I eventually identified this ingredient as a new alkaloid to which I gave the name "xeronine." Noticing that the clinical claims of efficacy for bromelain and noni were practically identical, I tried the same techniques on noni fruit which I had developed for isolating xeronine from the pineapple plant. The technique worked! Not only was I able to isolate the same compound from noni fruit, but the yields were excellent. Today noni is one of the best raw materials to use for the isolation of xeronine.

Xeronine is a relatively small alkaloid which is physiologically active in the picogram range. (Ed. note: a picogram is one trillionth of a gram) It occurs in practically all healthy cells of plants, animals and microorganisms. However, the amount of free alkaloid is minute and is well below the limits of normal chemical analytical techniques.

Even though noni fruits have a negligible amount of free xeronine, they contain appreciable amounts of the precursor of xeronine. This precursor, which I have named "proxeronine", is a strange molecule. The molecular weight is relatively large, namely about 16,000. In contrast to most plant colloids, this colloid contains neither sugars, amino acids nor nucleic acids. Thus most biochemists have overlooked this relatively abundant molecule which occurs in most tissues.

Noni fruits also contain the inactive form of the enzyme which releases xeronine from proxeronine. Unless this proenzyme becomes properly activated, however, noni juice will cause few pharmacological reactions. Fortunately if noni juice is taken on an empty stomach, the critical proenzyme escapes digestion in the stomach and enters the intestines. Here the chances are high that it may become activated.

Many years of research are still required to demonstrate convincingly how xeronine functions at the molecular level in a cell. In the meantime I can suggest certain hypotheses which can act as a guide in planning experiments. I am basing these hypotheses both on clinical results with bromelain pills as well as on a limited number of laboratory and animal experiments carried out with pure xeronine.

I am proposing that the primary function of xeronine is to regulate the rigidity and shape of specific proteins. Since these proteins have different functions, we have the usual clinical situation where administering one simple drug causes an unbelievably wide range of physiological responses.

The action which xeronine has on a person depends upon which of his tissues has a suboptimal level of xeronine. Thus xeronine can alleviate certain subsets of almost any known disease. For no disease, however, will xeronine be a panacea. A physiological disease, for example senility, may be caused by a deficiency or imbalance of a number of different biochemicals as well as by malfunctioning blood vessels, hormone systems or immune bodies. Only if the disease is specifically caused by a lack of xeronine will xeronine alleviate the symptoms of the problem.

I believe that each tissue has cells which contain proteins which have receptor sites for the absorption of xeronine. Certain of these proteins are the inert forms of enzymes which require absorbed xeronine to become active. Thus xeronine, by converting the body's procollagenase system into a specific protease, quickly and safely removes the dead tissue from burns. It is for this reason that aloes, bromelain and noni are such effective treatments for burns. Other proteins become potential receptor sites for hormones after they react with xeronine. Thus the action of ginseng, bromelain and noni in making a person feel well is probably caused by xeronine converting certain brain receptor proteins into active sites for the absorption of the endorphine, the well being hormones. Other proteins form pores through membranes in the intestines, the blood vessels and other body organs. Absorbing xeronine on these proteins changes the shape of the pores and thus affects the passage of molecules through the membranes. Thus the action of bromelain, noni and ginseng in improving digestion may be ascribable to this action. These are just a few of the many exciting actions of this newly discovered alkaloid. Since noni is a potential source of this alkaloid, noni juice can be a valuable herbal remedy.

There are some practical problems, however, in using noni juice as a medicine or tonic. If one is dying and all other remedies have failed, then and only then will the average person drink noni juice. The flavor of juice made from ripe Hawaiian noni is terrible. None of my colleagues would touch the untreated juice. Even after I had removed most of the disagreeable flavor (several organic acids) from the juice, my colleagues still found it unfit to drink. For a price the odoriferous chemicals can be removed from the Hawaiian variety. However, other varieties grown in other Pacific Islands such as "French Polynesia"(tahiti) are milder in flavor.

Another critical problem in using noni juice as a medicine or health tonic is timing. If the juice is drunk on a full stomach, it will have very little beneficial action. The pepsin and acid in the stomach will destroy the enzyme which liberates xeronine. For a seriously sick person taking the juice on an empty stomach rarely poses a problem; the patient is too sick to want to eat anything. However, for the average person who wants to drink noni juice as a health tonic, timing is critical. I would recommend taking 100 ml of noni juice a half hour before breakfast. At this time the juice will pass rapidly through the stomach and into the intestines, where it may be converted into the active enzyme. At any other time of the day, especially at meal times, the primary effects of drinking noni juice will be psychological and caloric. Because of the strong flavor the psychological effect might not necessarily be positive. To obtain the maximum effect of the active ingredient in noni, I would recommend also that noni juice not be taken with coffee, tobacco or alcohol. At times the combination of these materials and noni can give some unexpected side effects. At other times the combination merely lowers the potentially beneficial effect of xeronine.

Although the Hawaiian recommended both green fruit and ripe fruit for treating various ailments, my personal recommendation would be to use only the green fruit. The green fruit has more of the potentially valuable components and less of the undesirable flavor. In light of the new information on the action of xeronine what are some of the possible applications of noni juice? First I should make the caveat that for all of the possible applications which I am listing, one must always add the phrase "some types but not other types."

The old Hawaiian people were truly fortunate to have herbal medical doctors who recognized a valuable natural product and who knew how to administer this fruit with the proper psychological persuasion.

Noni Science


Clinical Practice And Studies

The National Institute of Health has funded studies of Noni Juice (morinda citrifolia) since the 1950's at the Univerity of Hawaii. The Cancer Research Center in Hawaii is currently in Phase II of it's clinical trials using Noni as a cancer treatment. Noni is still used by the local population in Hawaii for sugar control diseases, high vascular pressure, heart health maintenance, abnormal growths, and other chronic disorders, although no controlled clinical studies exist to support these uses. Based on clinical practice and animal studies, a polysaccharide-rich substance from noni fruit juice attacks abnormal cells in several different ways. 

Pure Noni Juice

Potent Antioxidant Activity

Noni juice also has potent antioxidant activity. Researchers conclude that noni juice could be used in clinical applications as a supplemental agent to reduce side-effects and improve chemotherapy. In animal studies, noni juice treatments prolonged the life span of mice by more than 75%.

Noni Fruit Contains:

The active ingredients are polysaccharides found in a polysaccharide-rich substance in the water-soluble fraction of the fruit juice. A novel trisaccharide fatty acid ester was recently identified from the fruits of noni. The fruit also contains the plant acids, hexoic acid and octoic acid, and paraffin.

Ubiquitous Substances

The potassium concentration in noni juice samples was determined and found to be 56.3 mEq/L. Other ubiquitous substances are also found in the fruit. Several noni products are marketed with the information that the key active ingredients in noni are alkaloids called proxeroxine and proeronase. These compounds have yet to be identified by conventional researchers and have not been reported in peer-reviewed scientific publications; it appears that the claims may be false.

Low-Potassium Diet

Noni juice, as a rich source of potassium, is contraindicated in cases of chronic renal insufficiency. There is a case report on noni juice involving a man with chronic renal insufficiency that self-medicated with noni juice and presented to a clinic with hyperkalemia despite claiming adherence to a low-potassium diet. People that cannot eat bananas (due to its potassium content), should probably not consumer noni fruit or juice as well.
