Noni fruit and its Juice are classified as a Super-Food.
This means that it contains enough features itself to qualify as one of the single most beneficial foods we can eat.
Its components are:
Some of the biological activity of anthraquinones includes fighting inflammation, bacteria, parasites and tumors. Some of these compounds are also considered analgesic (pain relievers).
These substances, once called “glucosides” are found in abundance in the plant kingdom.
These simple sugars are glucose, xylose, fructose, or any other sugar.
Some glycosides are valuable heart treatments, and include derivatives of digitalis for the treatment of heart ailments.
Sterols include cholesterol found in animals and ergosterol found in plants.
The plant sterols, called phytosterols alleviate problems associated with high levels of “bad” cholesterol (LDL) in our bodies, and can cause cardiovascular disease.
Noni juice is an important source of (beta-) sitosterols, stigmasterol and campesterol—the three most nutritionally important phytosterols
Terpenes are the major components in the oils of citrus fruits and they include the bioflavanoids and carotenoids
This fiber is a non-cellulose complex sugar and performs important functions within the gastrointestinal tract.
Scopoletin belongs to a group of compounds called coumarins, which cares for the liver, inhibits the growth of E. coli in the gut.
Xeronine is a small alkaloid that is required in picrogram (trillionth of gram) amounts and is essential to the correct functioning of the body.
Large amounts are used in times of physical or mental stress.
- AMINO ACIDS
Of the twenty amino acids, including the nine essential for our health, seventeen are found in Noni juice.
If an individual does not get a complete protein balance, then production and maintenance of muscles, connective tissue, blood-clotting factors, blood transport systems, visual pigments and the protein matrix inside bones would be at risk
- FATTY ACIDS
Many important fatty acids found in Noni are important to the overall complex metabolic processes of the body.
Acetic acid is the main acid that all fatty acids are made from.Caprylic acid another fatty acid, inhibits yeast and fungal overgrowth in the body.
Linoleic acid which cannot be manufactured in the body, serves these important functions.
- OTHER ACIDS
Benzoic Acid, Butanoic Acid, Decanoic Acid, Elaidic Acid, Heptanoic Acid, Hexanedioic Acid, Hexanoic Acid, Isobutyric Acid, Isocaproic Acid, Isolavenic Acid, Lauric Acid, Linoleic Acid, Mystiric Acid, n-butyric Acid, Nonanoic Acid, Octaduenoic Acid, Oleic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Ricinoleic Acid, Stearic Acid, Undecanoic Acid, Unolic Acid, Valeric Acid

NONI PROMOTES THE CELLULAR GROWTH:
In addition to the antioxidant activity in Noni, Dr. Ralph Heinicke, Ph.D.,
has pinpointed constituents in Noni that he believes are responsible for the Juice’s ability to promote cellular growth. These are parts of his postulated xeronine system, which consists of proxeronine, proxeroninease, and xeronine. The xeronine theory, which is based on much of Dr. Heinicke’s work, postualates that once in the body, proxeronine travels to specific parts of cells, such as the mitochondria, microsomes, Golgiapparatus, reticuloendothelium, electron transport system, DNA, RNA, and etc. Within the cell, these components communicate with each other (intracellular) and with other cells (intercellular).
This communication between cells may work according to the theories of several Nobel Prize winning doctors.
