Benefits Of Noni Juice : Personal Testimony

Benefits of noni juice : Introduction

I think the noni juice is one of the most controversial health drink. If you search through the internet , you would notice two distinct subjects surrounding the noni juice. The most glaring topic is claims that noni juice is a wonder juice which can cure almost every ailment. As such I need not have to list down all the benefits of noni juice. If I do, then it will be from A to Z of all the diseases that noni juice can cure! Let us just say that noni juice is supposed to contain important phytochemicals, macronutrients, micronutrients and other elements that contribute to the health of the human body.

The other hot topic on noni juice is criticisms from disappointed users, and there are many. I personal do not believe that there is such a fruit that can cure all ailments. But I do believe that certain fruits or herbs can cure certain diseases. And this does not hold true for every user. For some unknown or strange reasons, not everyone has the same response to the same fruit or herb. Even proven medical treatment cannot claim to have 100% success rate, let alone the simple herbs and fruits.

So why am I writing about the benefits of noni juice, you may ask. As you read further, you will know.

Benefits of noni juice : Background history and facts

Noni is known by many names. Its scientific name is Morinda Citrifolia. Its common names are great morinda, Indian mulberry, nunaakai (Tamil Nadu, India), dog dumpling (Barbados), mengkudu (Indonesia and Malaysia), beach mulberry, cheese fruit and the unflattering nickname, the vomit fruit.

Before the commercial marketing of noni juice, only the locals of countries where noni trees grew would know how to use it. Noni trees are found in the Polynesian Islands, the South Pacific countries, and Southeast Asian countries. Here in Malaysia, nobody took notice of noni until the Tahitian noni juice came with its high profile MLM promotion (Multi Level Marketing by direct sales). The noni fruits here in Malaysia are very small, hardly attractive at all especially with their ugly-looking appearance. In fact locals tend to distance themselves from the noni trees because their fruits stink to high heaven!

The commercial noni fruits come from Tahiti and Hawaii. There are around 300 companies marketing noni juice in the world with an annual market value exceeding $2 billion. So there is definitely good money to be made from this stinking juice! By the way I can safely say that all commercially marketed noni juice are not 100% pure noni juice, as the pure noni juice is definitely unpalatable. Just imagine noni fruits are so stinking that they are even called the vomit fruits. The commercial products always have a sweetener added to the noni juice, like pear juice and raspberry juice, to make them more palatable.

The scientific credentials of the noni juice come from one particular research scientist from Hawaii, Dr. Ralph Heinicke. Dr. Ralph Heinicke was initially working for the Dole Company where he did research on the pineapple. He studied one particular enzyme in the pineapple called bromelain. Apparently this bromelain was thought to be able to help cure a number of ailments. Following extensive research, Dr. Heinicke identified an active ingredient in bromelain which he later called proxeronine. By 1977, due to soil depletion, proxeronine in the Hawaiian pineapples had lost 97% of its effectiveness. This led to his research on the noni fruit which he discovered that there was a richer supply of proxeronine in the noni fruit than the pineapple.

Benefits of noni juice : What is proxeronine

What is this proxeronine?

To explain proxeronine, we need to know a bit about this rather complicated scientific biochemical-system theory called the “Xeronine System,” a term coined by Dr. Heinicke. During his research, Dr. Heinicke identified an alkaloid which he called xeronine. This xeronine has the ability to repair damaged body cells and ensure the proper functioning of all cells in the body. Dr. Heinicke was able to isolate this alkaloid into a pure state and found it to be a dry crystalline structure. To coin a new name for this alkaloid, he used the Latin prefix “xero” which means “dry” as the first part of the new name, and due to its alkaline nature, he added the suffix “ine” to come up with the name “xeronine,” which means dry alkaline compound.

Xeronine works at the molecular level to repair damaged cells. Xeronine is formed when a chemical reaction occurs between two building blocks, called proxeronine and proxeroninase. Proxeronine being the precursor to xeronine, and proxeroninase being the catalyst required for this chemical reaction. The liver releases proxeronine which then combines with proxeroninase and the hormone serotonin to form xeronine which is then distributed into the blood stream.

Dr. Heinicke found that the noni fruit had a very large amount of proxeronine; more than 40 times that found in the pineapples. He also found that noni contained the catalyst enzyme, proxeroninase, making the noni fruit the most ideal source to produce xeronine.

Benefits of noni juice : “Heinicke-Solomon Theory”.

Dr Heinicke later partnered Dr. Solomon to develop the “Heinicke-Solomon Theory,” to explain from a medical perspective how noni juice is converted in the body to produce Xeronine that is theorized to help sick cells resume normal function.

The Youtube video below, explains this theory.

Benefits of noni juice : My personal testimony

Now that you have read about the facts of noni juice and how it is supposed to work, let me share with you my personal adventure with this noni juice. As I repeated wrote in my various articles about herbal cures; for some reasons, they work on certain people but not everyone. And different people may benefit from the herbs or fruits in different ways.

I am not concerned with how noni juice actually works, but it works for me! And not necessarily that it will work for you in the same way. Some years back, I had this horrible urge to continually going to the toilet to do the big one. It was not to do with my stomach, but the constant urge around the anus area. And each time I went to the toilet, there were always stools. I really don’t know whether there is any medical term for this unusual problem.

Then someone recommended noni juice, and out of sheer desperation, I tried it. That was the single most worthwhile decision that I made in my life. It worked! No more problem since then, and I have stopped drinking noni juice for many years already. You may wonder why I didn’t continue. They have priced themselves out of the market being sold through the MLM method.

I am not selling noni juice. I just like to share my positive experience I had with this noni juice. It cured me of my unique problem. Perhaps noni juice may help you in certain ways. I don’t really know.

Hi Balinese,

The commercial Hawaiian Noni Juice has priced itself out in our country. This is because it is marketed under the MLM way (Multi-level marketing). Thanks for visiting and commenting.

Hi Lim Saw Lan, The last time I got from a supplier from BM. I am assuming you are around this region. Then never contacted her again. Lost her contact. You can Google search and it will lead you to your nearest supplier.
