NONI – A SUPER-FOOD

HISTORY

Noni, Morinda citrifolia, has been used extensively in folk medicine by Polynesians for over 2,000 years. Noni is a traditional food and medicine in many tropical areas including the Pacific Islands, Southeast Asia, India, and the Philippines. Ancient Hawaiians used Noni fruit for both internal and topical applications.

FACTS

People all over the world have started acknowledging the benefits of the Noni fruit and researchers are giving it the status of super-food. The Noni fruit has a strong smell and taste and is not palatable at first, so it takes a bit of getting used to. However, regardless of its taste, the Noni is one of the most wonderful gifts of nature as it is power packed with nutrients that can fight numerous diseases and has loads of other benefits as well.

Not only is Noni juice an energizing superfood bursting with 17 amino acids, Vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B6, B12- it is an immune boosting tonic perfect to keep colds and flu away this winter!

This amazing juice is also rich in iron, zinc, copper, calcium, magnesium and potassium making it an easy way to get all of your essential daily nutrients.

HEALTH BENEFITS

Noni is still used by the local population in Hawaii for diabetes, high blood pressure, heart health maintenance, abnormal growths, and other chronic disorders, though no controlled human clinical studies exist to support these uses. However, based on clinical practice and numerous animal studies, it is widely believed that the polysaccharide-rich substances found in Noni fruit juice attack abnormal cells and abnormal growths by stimulating body’s immune system. In animal cancer studies, Noni juice treatments reduced the formation of abnormal cells in the heart, lungs, liver, and kidney and prolonged the life span of mice by more than 75%.

Adaptogen: An adaptogen is a substance that has a global balancing effect on all body systems. There are only 12 known adaptogens; of these 12, Noni Juice is said to be the “premiere” adaptogen.

Aging and pollution: – Phytonutrients is a natural chemicals found in Noni juice that provide nourishment to cells, tissues, and organs, fight free radicals, ward off disease, and may even reverse the effects of aging and pollution.

Analgesic, Anti-Inflammatory, and Selective Cox II Inhibitor: Unlike typical pain relievers and anti-inflammatories, Noni Juice decreases pain and inflammation while protecting stomach, kidney, and liver cells. It contains anthraquinones, scopoletin, and terpenes, among others all work together to fight diseases.

Antidepressant/sedative: – Noni stimulates seratonin and melatonin, two very important hormones. Seratonin affects mood, emotions, and sleep; imbalance in levels of serotonin may contribute to depression. Melatonin regulates the Circadian rhythm, which helps you sleep; keeping this regular will help you get a good night’s rest, also improving your mood.

Anti-histamine, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial: –  Scopoletin is a little-known, but hard-working chemical component of Noni juice with many wonderful health benefits. It is anti-inflammatory, anti-histamine, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial. It regulates serotonin, the body’s “feel-good” hormone, which helps to ward off feelings of anxiety and depression, and may be why people who drink Noni juice often experience a sense of well-being.

Anti-Oxidant: Other anti-oxidants, such as green tea, pycnogenol, and vitamin C, among others, are important in neutralizing “free radicals”, or particles that cause DNA damage that can lead to cancer. Noni Juice has recently been found to be the most effective of all known anti-oxidants.

Antiseptic: – Anthraquinones (Damnacanthol) is an important antiseptic and anti-bacterial plant chemicals found in Noni juice. They have been shown in laboratory tests to kill pre-cancer cells, Lewis Lung carcinoma, and prevent DNA damage. It stimulates the immune response to cancer by activating the body’s T-cells, or “Cancer Killers.” T-cells are extremely important for people suffering from cancer, AIDS, or other diseases which compromise the body’s immune systems.

Anti-tumor/anti-cancer: – Noni stimulates the production of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is an extremely useful substance, one that is at the base of many of Noni’s benefits. In this case, it reduces tumor growth and helps your body fight against the cancerous replication of cells. It also contains an immuno-modulatory polysaccharide rich substance known as Noni-ppt that further fights cancer.

Cholesterol: – Noni prevents the absorption of LDL cholesterol, thus reducing plaque in arteries, keeping you healthy and alive longer. It is a vasodilator and lowers blood pressure.

Hypertension: – Noni is high in phytonutrients, selenium, and vitamin C, which fights free radical damage on blood vessel walls; it is alkaline, which keeps bodily fluids from becoming too acidic, therefore hurting free radicals. It also has proxeronine, which is needed for the body to produce xeronine.

Immune system booster: – Noni activates macrophages and strengthens the immune system, which then produces more lymphocytes. It also contains antibacterial agents that fight infectious bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli.

Immune System: – Noni has polysaccharides, which is an important compound that stimulates and modulates the immune system and its response to cancer. Profoundly influences anti-cancer activity on the molecular level.

Immuno-modulator: Noni Juice intelligently supports the immune system, not just by boosting it, but by regulating it to suppress the allergic and auto-allergic responses.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome/constipation: – Noni is high in soluble fiber, which helps ease the strain on your intestines and softens stool. Also has necessary vitamins and minerals to keep your intestines healthy.

Low Glycemic Index: A 3:1 ratio of carbohydrates to fiber in Noni Juice helps balance blood sugar levels.

Memory: – Noni, as mentioned before, prevents absorption of cholesterol by way of its large amount of phytosterols. This directly helps your brain stay healthier, and plaque does not build up in arteries feeding the brain, keeping it properly oxygenated.

Moisturizer: Noni Juice helps tissues retain moisture and is therefore a humectant.

Removes body toxins: – Noni contains Terpene which rejuvenates cells and rids the body of toxins.

Skincare/hair: – Noni’s properties are useful on skin and scalp conditions, such as eczema and ringworm; also rubbed on scalp for lustrous hair; and will keep your skin young. Just rub some juice on affected skin/scalp, leave on for 15 minutes, rinse off. Ingestion of juice may help your nails to grow stronger.

Stress: Xeronine helps coordinate the cells to work harmonious, lowering stress and in turn, blood pressure. Also has the amino acid, tryptophan. When tryptophan enters the blood stream and goes to cells, it helps produce other substances that are important, such as even more seratonin, which is great for lowering blood pressure by way of its relaxing effect.
