This speaks for its place among the products promising weight loss. The Noni fruit and its accurate consumption can be a blessing for those who are frustrated with their extra fat in their body. Dr. Ralph Henicke, a Hawaiian researcher found out that the Noni fruit contains a vital alkaloid called Xeronine. It is relatively a small alkaloid. But this tiny alkaloid is a very active constituent and plays a very important role in building and repair of cells in a human body. It works at the molecular level in building and repair of cells. The basic function of Xeronine is the regulation of rigidity and shape of specific proteins found in a human body. The reason why a noni juice made from the Noni fruit results in a number of physiological responses is due to the fact that the proteins are closely knit with the cells of a human body and often function within the cells themselves. With Sodium and Potassium levels high in a Noni fruit, it helps in delivering superior antioxidants in the human body. Thus the fruit is said to have anti-ageing qualities. Also helps in improving cellular health, fight diseases like Cancer and other immune system ailments. Noni juice if taken on a regular basis, serves as a great energy booster for our body. Since the fruit has been in use in South-east Asia for the last 2000 years, many people regard a Noni fruit as a ‘survival fruit’, a fruit which helps in survival during famine. Andaman noni helps human cells receive essential nutrients for the better functioning of the human body. Ancient people found the fruits and its leaves very useful in treating many diseases. People afflicted with painful gout were treated by rubbing the leaves of the Noni fruit. Its leaves were used to heal wounds. Doctors during that period used the Noni fruit for treating a lot of throat and mouth problems, menstrual problems of bleeding. They also used it as a laxative.
Today, doctors are using Noni fruits and its products for treating many other diseases including blood pressure and blood sugar levels, arthritis, to boost energy, as a pain reliever and an anti-inflammatory drug. A silver lining has been found regarding the treatment of Cancer through Noni fruit and its products, basically the noni juice. But research is still going on to confirm Noni’s ability in completely curing this deadly disease. Among all the diseases stated above, not all of them are completely cured. But there has been no doubt regarding the fact that Noni has been effective in treating many of these diseases. In general Noni or any of its products can be taken in empty stomach. But it is always advisable that its usage directions be taken from the Physician. A healthy lifestyle is the most difficult thing that a person today can ask for. A wide range of diseases have invaded the human civilization. Some of the major diseases may have been put in check, but there is still a lot of work to be done. Continuous research about the medicinal properties of the Noni fruit and being a vital part of medicinal treatment for more than 2000 years makes Noni the most promising medicinal milestone in the future.
