Noni fruit is rich in antioxidants, Vitamins C, A, B, and minerals like calcium, potassium, phosphorus, and iron, which help boost overall well-being, fight infections, reduce the risk of allergies, revitalize cells, and tissues and also help in detoxifying the body.
For anyone looking to battle against premature aging and chronic degenerative diseases, Noni is definitely one to remember.
From the moment we are born, our bodies are challenged continuously by those dreaded oxidants, the free radicals. Free radicals are generated from many sources including:
- Oxygen metabolism
- Chemical Toxins
- Unhealthy diets
Gerontologists now widely regard free radicals as the primary cause of premature aging and degenerative diseases including cardiovascular diseases, inflammatory disease, cataracts, retinal degeneration, cancer, stroke, and many immune disorders including allergies and frequent colds.
In the body, antioxidants scavenge free radicals and neutralize them into harmless substances, hence protect the body from free radical-induced damages.
Noni has a group of antioxidants that have generated much excitement in the health industry. Research shows that Noni’s ability to fight free radicals is many times stronger than other antioxidants on the market. This immense free radical scavenging capability is due to :
- Its ability to act within the cell membrane, and
- It’s capacity to simultaneously neutralize both water and fat-soluble free radicals.
The mechanism through which Noni supports connective tissue and vascular integrity was investigated. It was found that Noni :
- Inhibited the release of certain enzymes which damage the protective sheath (endothelium) of capillary walls, and
- Strengthened the collagen fibers which form the protective sheath.
These actions jointly increase the integrity of the vascular system, decreasing capillary permeability and fragility. It would follow that Noni would be particularly useful for protection against peripheral disorders (such as phlebitis, varicose veins, high blood pressure, visual dysfunction), arthritis, allergies, atherosclerosis, cataracts, diabetes, heart disease, and other degenerative conditions. Further, Noni augments wound healing, curbs inflammation, promotes youthful-looking skin, hastens recovery from injuries, improves sluggish memories, and inhibits damaging microbes from causing infection.
