Organic raw Noni fruit is a potent source antioxidants, polysaccarhides, vitamins and minerals that support a healthy immune system. Our raw whole fruit organic Noni powder may help strengthen the digestive system and increase energy and vitality. Traditional healers have used Noni (Morinda citrifolia) for many health conditions for thousands of years. In the late 20th century, western science confirmed what millions of people have already known. The Noni fruit is known as the "Queen of Health Plants" due to its wide range of applications. Noni stimulates the production of T-cells (white blood cells) in the immune system. T-cells play a pivotal role supporting good health. An immunomodulatory polysaccharide-rich substance (Noni-ppt) from the Noni fruit has been found to possess both prophylactic and therapeutic properties in supporting healthy and normal cellular tissue growth. Further scientific studies on Noni's abilities to support healthy and normal cellular tissue growth are being conducted. Noni is also being used for antibacterial and antiseptic purposes and contains 17 of the 20 known amino acids, including all 9 essential amino acids.
Raw Certified Organic Noni Fruit is excellent for digestion, infection, depression, thyroid function, arthritis, fatigue, pain, addictions, headaches, and muscular degeneration. Woman's World magazine, May 9, 2000, quotes Dr. Neil Soloman, who has studied the effects of Noni on more than 12,000 people. He has found that it is a natural pain killer and anti-inflammatory that is 75% as strong as morphine, yet non-addictive and side effect free. Dr. Soloman's research shows that Noni is effective for everything from migraines to osteoarthritis to fibromyalgia. The Woman's World article sites additional research which details Noni's ability to stimulate the immune system and open blood vessels so blood can move through them more easily. These studies studies also suggest that Noni could help at least 40% of cancer patients beat their disease. Dr. A. Hirazumi, researcher at the University of Hawaii, School of Medicine, found that Noni significantly raised the T-cell count in the body. T-cells are like tiny soldiers of the immune system, helping to keep out invaders and toxins.
