Product Description

Also called Indian Mulberry Tree. Very popular 20' tropical tree has attractive oval leathery leaves and produces numerous white flowers. Dyes of various colors are derived from the roots and the most parts of the tree are used for some form of medicinal use. Noni juice is an increasingly popular drink. Over the last decade, a growing number of people have become interested in the medicinal uses of noni juice, made from the fruit of the Indian mulberry ( Morinda citrifolia ) of the South Pacific Islands of Tahiti, and more recently from Hawaii. Morinda citrifolia has been used in folk remedies by Polynesians for over 2000 years, and is reported to have a broad range of therapeutic effects, including antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antitumor, antihelmin, analgesic, hypotensive, anti-inflammatory, and immune enhancing effects. But does modern scientific research support these claims. Morinda Citrifolia Chemistry: Morinda citrifolia has been documented to contain a mixture of anthraquinones, organic acids, xeronine, several vitamins (such as beta-carotene, niacin, riboflavin, thiamine), some minerals, iron and calcium. The potassium content is similar to that in tomato juice and orange juice. Morinda Citrifolia grows extensively throughout the South Pacific, and was at one time the most widely used medicinal plant in the region. This evergreen shrub grows especially well in the rich volcanic ash of Hawaii. Some of the beneficial constituents of Morinda Citrifolia include various terpene compounds, caproic and caprylic acids, vitamin C and alkaloids. However, Morinda Citrifolia is most famous for the presence of an alkoloid proxeronine, which is believed to be a precursor to xeronine.
