Noni Juice: Information
Noni juice is made from the fruit of the noni, or Morinda citrifola plant native to the Pacific Islands. Noni fruit has a pungent smell similar to that of blue cheese.
Used for centuries by traditional healers to treat various ailments, noni has only recently been the subject of formal research. Preliminary research is investigating the effectiveness of noni as a cancer-fighting/ cancer preventative agent. More research is needed.
Use as directed. A typical dosage of noni is 3-6g of powder or 8-10oz of juice taken in two divided doses per day. Noni juice may be mixed with water or other juices to make the smell or flavor more pleasant.
Side-effects and Cautions:
Noni juice contains anthraquinones which may tint urine red or pink. While harmless, it is a good idea to tell your health care practitioner that you are consuming noni juice should you be subject to a urine test. Pregnant/nursing women should consult a physician before consuming this product. Noni juice contains a high amount of potassium, so individuals with a kidney disorder should not consume large amounts. Noni juiceis often high in sugar, so those watching their sugar intake should not consume large amounts.
