Noni

Noni is also known as Indian Mulberry. It is a small, tree-like shrub that can grows to heights of 27 feet. It produces a fruit that turns from green to white, protruding from white, cream-like flowers. The leaves of the Noni plant are oval and can be over quite large - over 1 foot long. The plant is native to parts of Southeast Asia. Noni was transplanted to the Polynesian islands over 2000 years ago, and has also spread into parts of India. The plant prefers to grow in the volcanic soils of coastal regions, as well as upon lowlands less than 400 meters above sea level. [1]

Noni has been used for over 2000 years as both a medicine and food. The people of Polynesia used Noni to treat infection and chronic disease. It also proved useful as a survival food, for those lost or wandering. Aside from being a novel food source and medicinal agent, parts of the Noni plant were used ornamentally; to make a reddish dye for clothing and use in ceremonial rituals.

Today, Noni is said to be a remedy for diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, infections, and chronic diseases. Until recently, there has not been much research documenting these uses, regardless of its popularity. Current research is being conducted to test the validity of the claims for Noni's medicinal action. In the meantime, many use Noni for the abovementioned anecdotal actions.

Noni contains several different constituents that vary according to which part of the plant is used. Noni is known to contain anthraquinones, alkaloids, and proxeronine, as well as polysaccharides, sterols, coumarins, triterpenes, and iridoids. [2] Since the discovery of Noni's active constituents, research into the mechanism of action in humans is of great interest in the medical community.
