Noni is a lumpy, yellow fruit found along lava flows in Southeast Asia. Traditional Polynesian medicine has used noni for over 2,000 years and is used to treat health issues like constipation, infections, pain, and arthritis. Noni has been shown to be packed with vital antioxidants and is a great source of vitamin C, biotin, and folate. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12466051, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26828517
Noni is perhaps best known for its high levels of antioxidants-which help prevent oxidative damage caused by molecules called free radicals. Scientist believe it is Noni’s powerful antioxidant properties that are the cause of its health benefits. The main antioxidants found in Noni include but are not limited to beta carotene, iridoids, and vitamins C and E. It is iridoids that seem to be especially powerful antioxidants. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20858541, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24804023
Noni may reduce cellular damage caused by oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is associated with heat disease, diabetes, and cancer. Several studies have shown that consuming food or supplements rich in antioxidants may help reduce oxidative stress. In one study, heavy smokers who drank 4 ounces of noni juice per day reduced free radical in their body by 30% compared to baseline levels. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29731617, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21589762, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19807926
Noni may support heart health by lowering cholesterol levels and reducing inflammation. Certain types of cholesterol found in high levels may increase your risk of heart disease and chronic inflammation. Noni has been shown to significantly reduce the total cholesterol, LDL (bad) cholesterol levels, and inflammatory blood marker C-reactive protein. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24164719, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23097636
Other studies have revealed that Noni may improve endurance during exercise. One 3-week study gave long-distance runners 3.4 ounces of noni juice or a placebo twice daily. The Noni group experienced a 21% increase in average time to fatigue. Researchers believe the increase in physical endurance associated with noni is most likely due to its antioxidants-which may play a rule in reducing damage to muscles that normally occurs during exercise https://academicjournals.org/journal/JMPR/article-full-text-pdf/736746415191, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29641454
Noni may have pain relieving effects. In a 1-month study, people with arthritis of the spine took 0.5 ounces of noni juice twice daily. The noni group experienced significantly lower pain score- with complete relief of neck pain in 60% of participants. In another, researchers gave 3 ounces of noni juice daily to people with osteoarthritis. The results showed a significant decrease in frequency and severity of pain, as well as an improved quality of life. http://agris.fao.org/agris-search/search.do?recordID=DJ2012067176
Since Noni is rich in vitamin C it is believed it may improve immune health. Vitamin C supports immune defense by protecting cells from free radicals and environmental toxins. In one 8-week study of healthy people, researchers found that those who drank 11 ounces of noni juice daily had increased immune cell activity and lower levels of oxidative stress. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29099763, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20858541
