We didn't know that much here on the mainland about this Hawaiian nutritional superstar when it began to be introduced around 7 to 10 years ago. At that time, pure noni.
Today, many people have begun consuming certified organic noni fruit leather and pure juice. One little square on an empty stomach is concentrated nutritional power.
NONI AND HEALTHY CELLS
Noni fruit clinical trials to see how it improves the quality of life in cancer patients are in early stages under the leadership of Brian Issell, M.D., from the University of Hawaii. Issell is conducting an early phase clinical trial to see whether noni is safe. So far, every amount tested has been without any observable side effects at all.
“In terms of speculation about the roles of different ingredients, only those ingredients that get absorbed by the human gut in sufficient quantity to have an effect are likely to be of importance,” said Issell.
He adds, “One of the identified absorbed molecules from noni is scopoletin,” which is renowned for its pain-relieving properties and is the subject of pharmaceutical enquiries.
