Medical research on Noni or Noni started at least 1950, when the scientific journal Science reported that Pacific Noni fruit showed anti-bacterial properties against M. pyrogenes, P. Aeruginosa, and even E. coli are deadly.
Studies and research on Noni continues to be done by various research institutes and universities.
Since 1972, Dr. Ralph Heinicke, the famous biochemist from the United States began to conduct research on alkaloid xeronine of the enzyme bromelain (an enzyme in pineapple).
It was later discovered that the Noni fruit also contains xeronine and its precursor (proxeronine) in large numbers. Xeronine is one of the important substances that regulate specific functions of proteins and cells of the human body.
In 1993, the journal Cancer Letter reported that some researchers from Keio University and The Institute of Biomedical Sciences in Japan to research the 500 species of plant claimed that they found anti-cancer substances (damnacanthal) contained in Noni.
Leading research institutions in France, the Netherlands, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Taiwan, Austria, Canada, and even the National Academy of Sciences, a center of scientific study of national prestigious in the United States has conducted numerous studies on Noni.
Meanwhile, researchers at the University of Hawaii has also done a lot of research on Noni, including research on the activities of anti-tumor and anti-cancer Morinda citrifolia published in a scientific journal (Proc, West Pharmacology Society Journal, vol, 37, 1994).
Because it must be if the study used 100% Noni juice the Noni Juice working power of his will be much more powerful, so the likely amount of “percentage helped” by Noni will be much higher.
Through intensive research conducted by scientists in the laboratory, showing the benefits of foreign Noni Plant contains a variety of vitamins, minerals and enzymes, alkaloids, co-factors and plant sterols are naturally occurring. Other than that, the leaves and roots intact Noni contains amino acids which are the main source of protein.
Noni fruit water content around 52 percent. Several studies have been conducted to determine what elements are present in Noni. Studies and research have shown the existence of attractive substances in Noni juice, although not all identified.
New in 1993, a researcher (Helen Sim), the master’s thesis entitled The Isolation and Characterization of a Fluorescent Compound From The Fruit of Morinda citrifolia: Studies on 5-ht Receptor System reported the presence of these substances in Noni fruit that is not known by him or his friends. Most of these substances related to health and has been proven only in the Noni fruit.
The following are other benefits of Noni fruit that have been scientifically proven.
Improve Endurance Body
Clinical investigations conducted by Dr. Schechter (Institute of Natural Medicine in California) generate critical data about the ability of Noni juice, among which stimulates the production of T cells in the immune system (T cells play an important role in fighting disease), strengthens the immune system, especially macrofaset and lymphocytes from cell White blood; exhibit anti-bacterial effect; having potent anti-pain / pain (analgesic), inhibit the growth of precancerous cells / tumor that is the ability to normalize the function of abnormal cells.
Mona Harrison, MD from Boston University School of Medicine and medical director at DC General Hospital, USA reported that Noni increases the function of the thyroid gland and the thymus gland, which is believed to act against infections and problems associated with the immune system.
Normalize Blood Pressure
According to Neil Solomon, MD.PhD, health problems of American researchers reported that the Noni fruit contains a type of phytonutrients, namely scopoletin which serves to widen the channel of the blood vessel constriction. This causes the heart does not have to work too hard to pump blood, so the blood pressure became normal.
The results of testing on animals shows that scopoletin lowering high blood pressure and normal to be low (hypotension abnormal). However, scopoletin contained in Noni fruit can interact synergistically with nutraceuticals (foods that serve to treatment) another to regulate high blood pressure to be normal, but it did not lower blood pressure to normal. Never found cases in which the blood pressure down to normal lead to low blood pressure (hypotension).
Experts from the University of Stanford, University of Hawaii, University of California (UCLA), Union College of London, University of Meets in France who has studied the Noni agrees that these plants contribute to lower blood pressure in many cases.
Simple clinical trial conducted by Scott Gerson, MD (from Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York) shows that many users Noni reported that their blood pressure is high when stopped drinking Noni juice and return to normal when taking Noni juice on a regular basis .
Against Tumor and Cancer
An interesting papers that were presented at the annual meeting of the American Association fin. Cancer Research to-83 in San Diego, California, in 1992, is the “Anti-tumor Morinda citrifolia on Lewis Lung Carcinoma in Mice were injected. ‘ In this study, rats were given an injection of Lewis Lung Carcinoma (a type of cancer).
All the mice were not treated with Noni die within 9-12 days due to cancer. Whereas mice treated with Noni able to survive 105 to 123 percent longer (40 percent of experimental mice live up to 50 days or more).
The study was repeated several times and each time Noni shown to significantly prolong the life of mice with cancer compared with mice that were not treated with Noni. In summary, the results of this study revealed that Noni can inhibit tumor growth.
A year later the journal Cancer Letters (vol.3, 1993) reported the discovery of anti-cancer substances / damnacanthal in the Noni extract can inhibit the growth of cancer cells.
There are some cases of cancer patients who consumed Noni juice and be cured, among other cases, patients Dr. Harrison (DC General Hospital), who suffered from liver cancer and stomach swelling caused by excess fluid.
During the 7 days consuming Noni juice, swelling of the stomach is reduced significantly. Testing haru stomach fluids showed that the cancer cells have disappeared.
According to Dr. Judah Folkman of Harvard University, Noni works synergistically with other micronutrients in menghamhat blood flow to the tumor cells. The mechanism is similar to squalen oil (from shark liver) that control brain tumor growth and extend the life of rats with experimental damage equipment circulation of the blood supply to the tumor cells.
Noni fruit’s ability as an analgesic has been known in the history of traditional medicine, so the plant is called “painkiller tree” or “headache tree”. Scientific research has proven beneficial effects of Noni to cope with the pain.
In 1990, researchers found a significant relationship between the dose of Noni juice extract with analgesic activity rats (generally, the more widely used analgesic effect will be stronger).
Many theories that explain how the mechanism of action of Noni relieve pain. One is the theory of Dr.. Ralph Heinicke (famous biochemist from the U.S.) who said that xeronine who play a role in relieving pain.
This is attributed to the ability of the protein to the cell xeronine normalize the abnormal cells, including cells of the brain tissue, where sourced pain. Some cases of chronic pain such as headaches constantly, nerve muscle soreness and joint pain cured after taking Noni juice.
Anti-inflammatory and Anti-allergy
The compound scopoletin (hydroxy-methoxy-coumarin) is very effective as an anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic. Medical literature reported the successful treatment of arthritis, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and allergies by using scopoletin.
Bryant Bloss, MD, an orthopedist from Indiana, the United States reported the success of Noni juice cure back pain that caused also 15 people and patients. Meanwhile, the 8 patients reported knee pain (osteoarthritis) almost does not feel taking Noni juice.
Three of his patients. Bloss who suffer from asthma progress with the reduction in cough. Some patients with arthritis also begin to experience real progress after drinking Noni juice. She offers Noni juice as additional food / supplement and not as a drug to the patient.
Results of research journals published darn Pacific Science (vol 1.4, 1950) reported that Noni contains anti-bacterial ingredients that can be used to treat heart disease and digestive problems. Antraquinon compounds are abundant in Noni roots turned out to fight the bacteria that cause Staphylococcus infections of the heart and Shigella bacteria that cause dysentery.
Noni is anti-bacterial against: Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Proteus morganii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella montevdleo, schotmuelleri Salmonella, Salmonella typhi, Shigella dysenteriae, Shigella flexnerii, Shigella paraciysenteriae BH und III-Z, Staphylococcus aureus.
Dr. Robert Young, a microbiologist from Utah, USA find yeast molds and fungi with toxins it produces can cause diseased cells because the degree of acidity (pH) increases. By consuming Noni juice, the situation can be overcome because Noni helps regulate the body’s pH balance, thereby increasing the body’s ability to absorb vitamins, minerals and protein.
Set the Mood Cycle (Mood)
One of the capabilities possessed by scopoletin is able to bind to serotonin. According to Dr. Harrison (DC.General Hospital, USA) scopoletin gland activity can increase peneal found in the brain, which is where serotonin is produced and then used to produce the hormone melatonin.
Serotonin is an important substance in the blood granules (platelets) lining the human gastrointestinal tract and brain. In the brain, serotonin acts as a neurotransmitter, the signal conductor and a precursor of the hormone melatonin suggestions.
Serotonin and melatonin helps regulate some of the body such as sleep, body temperature regulation, mood (mood), puberty and egg production cycle, hunger and sexual behavior. Lack of serotonin in the body can lead to migraine, dizziness, depression, and even Alzheimer’s disease.
Set Cycle Energy Body
Dr. Harrison also reported that the frequency shift caused by the body’s energy is also positive activities Noni juice. The effects among others, can stabilize blood sugar, reduce pain during menstruation, reduce the desire to urinate at night for men who have prostate swelling.
According to Dr. Heinicke (biochemist from the U.S.), xeronine also play a role in the body’s energy cycle. He explained the mechanism as follows, xeronine will be absorbed in the space adjacent to the absorption of endorphin and act as a precursor hormone (co-hormone) to activate the receptor protein that gives feeling / comfortable. As a result, people will feel good and have more energy after taking Noni juice.
Research on Noni fruit growing, both conducted by the physician and botanist and biochemist. The study focused on chemicals contained in Noni komponen-komponen/susunan and therapeutic effects against various diseases.
These studies show that Noni juice can stimulate the immune system, regulating cell function and regeneration of cells damaged tissue. The facts show that Noni can set the cells at the primary level and tipping may explain why Noni can be used for a variety of health conditions.
The doctors in the United States already provides many reports of successful use of Noni juice to his patients. Dr. Richard Dicks (from New Jersey, USA) said, “we began to realize that we must return to the fundamentals of our body. What is the metabolism of nutrients in the body is burned. Noni juice protects our body by providing nutrients needed by body. ”
Noni has a property-other properties that have not been proven medically, but empirically been many people who have experienced health improvements and increased after consuming juice. Some of the health problems that can be solved by using Noni:
Digestive System: Flatulence, injury to the small intestine, stomach ulcers, vomiting and food poisoning.
Respiratory system: cough, bronchitis, sore throat, tuberculosis, cholera, fever in infants, sinusitis, asthma.
Cardiovascular system: high cholesterol, thickening of the heart muscle, increasing oxygen transport within the cell.
Skin diseases: burns, cuts, scabies, boils, cellulite, skin worms, dandruff, ringworm, and inflammation of the skin, ulcers on the skin, and skin problems on the other.
Mouth and throat: sore throat, bleeding gums, cough, mouth sores, tooth ache.
Menstrual disorders: premenstrual syndrome, irregular menstrual cycles, pain during menstruation.
Ageless: Noni juice can be used as a tonic to overcome the wrinkles caused by aging.
Diseases in the body: Diabetes, chronic hepatitis, pelvic pain, headaches, impaired renal function, bladder stones, disturbances in thyroid hormone.
Immune deficiency: Disease Epstein-Barr virus, chronic candidiasis, diseases caused by HIV infection, lack of energy (AES = altered energy syndrome).
Why One Plants Can Cure Diseases So Many Types?
Scientific research shows that constituents in fruit Noni has properties to stimulate the formation of immune response, cleanses the blood, regulating cell function, regeneration of damaged cells and inhibits tumor growth.
Phytochemicals (natural chemical substances found in plants) has efficacy for disease prevention and rich in antioxidants. Noni has a very broad spectrum of phytochemicals, some of which are only found in Noni. The phytochemical-phytochemical synergy with each other to produce amazing healing properties.
Dr. Joseph Betz, chemical researchers from the FDA (Food and Drug Association) division of the Natural Products Center For Good Safety and Applied Nutrition at the U.S. said that some experiments have shown that Noni juice can soothe muscle movement and has anti-allergic effect.
In 1992, Dr. Isabella Abbott, professor of botany at the University of Hawaii said that Noni more and more people use to cope with diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure and many other diseases.
