For centuries dating back to the time when Christ walked the earth, Noni has been known to contain amazing healing properties not found in other tropical fruits found in the Pacific Islands. The medicine man, also known as the village Kahuna used Noni to fight-off disease. It wasn’t until the past two decades that scientific research supported many of Noni juices healthful claims.
Recently, research has been conducted at the University of Hawaii that has involved phase one of a study that focuses on Noni and cancer in humans. The lead investigator, Dr. Brian Issell, standardized the serving size for the study and monitors the CAT scans of cancer patients who use Noni to determine if there are any significant changes in the scans results of known anti-cancer materials found in Noni juice along with the immune system boosters thought to be regulated by Noni.
A fellow researcher, Anne Hirazumi, Ph.D. published a study in a prominent journal showed the compounds found in Noni juice to slow down and even stop cancer in laboratory mice implanted with Lewis Lung carcinoma. A long with other researchers, the data assembled suggests Noni may suppress a cancerous tumor from growing by activating the host’s, in this case mice, immune system eliminating the reproduction of abnormal or mutating cells.
The research study demonstrated that cancer survival time in the subject improved when Noni was given to the controlled mice. The clinical researchers determined through the produced data that Noni acted to supplement and strengthen the host in cancer treatment.
In the early 90s. Japanese scientists published Noni research in an article in “Cancer Letters” that added to the theory that Noni, or the botanical name Morinda citrifolia offered cancer-fighting properties that produced positive results. They looked at “Ras” cells, commonly found to be the precursor to cancer or malignant cell growth with a substance found in Noni called damnacanthal. They discovered by injecting it into the subjects’ significantly reduced and at times stopped ras cells from reproducing.
