Noni in diabetes


For thousands of years Morinda citrifolia, a fruit bearing plant commonly known as Noni, has been used in an effort to battle a wide array of health challenges. In recent years, the health-enhancing properties of this plant have been harnessed and made available for the benefit of people.

This miracle from paradise has been described as one of the most important health discoveries of the twentieth century. Noni has earned this praise through its powerful ability to help with a variety of health conditions and act as a natural immune system booster.

Thousands of people worldwide have attributed improvements in their health to the tremendous, and often life-saving benefits found in Noni. Recent scientific research in both clinical and laboratory settings validate the efficacy of this ancient fruit. In addition, doctors and health care professionals around the world are praising Noni as their patients win battles against chronic conditions many have suffered from for years.

The role immune system in diabetes

Research has shown that if the immune system starts to turn on itself – perhaps the result of an autoimmune disorder – it may cause a complete obliteration of the pancreas’ beta cells or at least a reduction in the number of functioning beta cells. This then affects the amount and purity and effectiveness of the body’s insulin. However, if the immune system is able to ward off an attack, the integrity of the body’s insulin will be maintained.

More refined tests now make it possible to detect faulty immune antibodies in the blood well in advance of a person showing symptoms of diabetes. In some adults, these destructive antibodies may be present years before diabetic symptoms appear. This lag time is known as the “prediabetic stage.”

Noni controls diabetes

One such health challenge that many have found Noni to help with is diabetes. Doctors and researchers suggest that Noni has the ability to help strengthen the immune system which, in turn, can help the body maintain strong insulin levels. As a result, many Type I and II diabetics have finally found relief from this often deadly disease in the form of Noni.

Many of the effects of diabetes can be controlled. While there is no cure for the disease, studies show that by keeping one’s blood sugar as close to normal as possible significantly reduces diabetes’ long-term complications.


The miracle of Xeronine – Xeronine, the alkaloid of Noni in the presence of insulin activate the peripheral cell membrane insulin receptors and helps for the normal intracellular absorption of glucose as well as corrects the intracellular post receptor defect of the action of insulin for carbohydrate metabolism and thus prevents the insulin resistance condition in diabetes cases.

Noni the cell-rejuvenator – Noni is believed to fortify and maintain the cell structure; this can be accomplished by Noni acting as an adaptogen that can aid “sick” cells in repairing themselves. Xeronine and other nutraceuticals present in Noni may convert the abnormal inactive insulin molecule present in type 2 diabetes mellitus to an active form by modifying its cell rigidity and functional level to maintain its normal function of carbohydrate metabolism in our body.

Noni works as a ‘Healthy, Immune System Promoter – One of the Noni’s effects is on the pancreas and immune system. Current studies have revealed that Noni may help promote a healthy immune system or by either enhancing an already functioning system or by stimulating a sluggish one. Noni activating our body immune system may improve the non functioning beta cells of the pancreas to an active form to produce the normal insulin from the beta cells and also maintain a normal insulin level in the blood to the response of the carbohydrate diet.

Low Glycemic Index – A 3:1 ratio of carbohydrates to fiber in Noni juice helps balance blood glucose level. Glycemic index refers to a method of classification by which a number is assigned to foods based on how they affect blood sugar levels. Foods that contain the same amount of total carbohydrate may have a different glycemic index. For example kidney beans increase blood sugar levels more significantly than Soya beans, because of its higher glycemic value. Noni has a very low glycemic index and hence it reduces the risk of chronic conditions of diabetics

Noni might have the role by modifying our body immune system keeps the sensitivity of beta cells of the pancreas intact to produce an adequate amount of insulin in response to elevated blood glucose level by keeping and maintaing the balance of release of the neuro-endocrine signals of the brain.

Noni may help the diabetic complications like care of diabetic gangrene by its powerful healing effects and also helps diabetic poly neuropathy symptoms by providing number essential micronutrients, vitamins, essential minerals and amino acids that it contains.

Noni may also help relieve diabetic complications through its ability to stimulate the body’s production of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide and Scopoletin one ingredient in noni helps also reduce the diabetic hypertension. Both may also be important factors in decreasing symptoms such as poor circulation and vision problems.

Hence it’s the GOD’S gift to the human society


Testimonial of Noni effect on Diabetic Neuropathy.
Adult Diabettes — Return of Sensation in Feet
By Tom Reese

I am getting results ! ! ! From taking Tahitian Noni Juice ! ! ! !

I’m an insulin-dependent adult diabetic [type II diabetes Mellitus]. Tuesday night two weeks ago [August 14th, 2001], we bought our first bottle of Noni. I started that night on 2 oz of juice twice daily. By Saturday the 25th, I noticed I didn’t require as much insulin as usual. Sunday night the 26th increased to 3 oz and have continued twice daily at that rate. Sunday and Monday nights I had to get up in the night due to low blood sugar [my body wakes me up when it is “crashing”]. I had to eat a sweet snack because I had too much insulin in my system. I had already cut back on the amount of insulin I had been taking.

Just yesterday, at the site, I had read the following comment by Dr. Stephen Hall, M.D., “Noni normalizes the function of cell-wall receptors so many of the people in my practice with type II diabetes mellitus don’t have it anymore.”

I’m astounded ! ! I still need to take some insulin, but time will tell if that need goes away. I’ll give it the time ! !

Almost a Year Later – More Astounding results Continue to Appear ! ! ! !

A couple of months after I wrote the testimony above, I noticed that I was beginning to experience a return of some sensation in areas of my feet that had suffered severe nerve damage [diabetic neuropathy, it is called] – I could begin to sense if the floor I was walking on bare-footed was warm or cold – something I hadn’t been able to feel in a number of years.

Several years ago, I had participated in an investigational study at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School that involved the use of a European medication intended to stop or reduce nerve damage in my feet. The damage had continued to increase following this study. I thought that once a nerve “died”, that there was nothing that could be done to restore lost nerve function. Well, Noni Juice continues to prove conventional medical wisdom to be mistaken.

I do not have full feeling back in my feet, and I don’t know if I ever will, but the improvement in nerve function continues. For quite some time, I had not been able to maintain my balance when standing in the dark or with my eyes closed. As you may know, the many nerves in the bottom of our feet provide our brain with critical feedback needed in maintaining our balance This feedback had been considerably diminished in my case. But about two months ago – in June 2002 – I suddenly discovered that I no longer had to lean against the wall of the shower when I closed my eyes as I washed my hair. And I have noticed that when standing at meetings, I am more steady on my feet.

How much Noni Juice do I drink? I usually drink two ounces at bedtime and three ounces at breakfast. If I’m ill or under unusual stress, I may drink an ounce or two every few hours. At this point in time, I have not experienced a continued lessening of my requirement for insulin that I experienced almost a year ago, but then, my body has been putting the Noni Juice I drink to other very valuable medical use in my body.
