Sister Maria planted dozens of these NONI TREES here in Honduras which she uses as treatment for her patients in the clinic.  Noni fruit has been a panacea and tonic in the Polynesian islands for THOUSANDS of YEARS.  Today science has shown it has promise for lowering cholesterol, treating cardiovascular disease, reducing oxidative stress, lowers blood sugar in diabetics and protects and treats against chronic states of degenerative disease and has been widely studied for immune support and cancer.

Traditionally Noni has been used as the fruit, flower, leaves, bark and root.  In Polynesia, noni leaves have a long history of topical use in poultices for the treatment of rheumatic pain, inflammation, neuralgia, ulcers, gout, cough and cold, boils and ringworm.  In Hawaii, noni fruit was crushed  and applied to bruises, sprains and swollen limbs. The leaves of the tree were mashed with other plants and applied to deep wounds. By the 1930’s noni fruit was used more widely for internal purposes, including intestinal worms, weakness and respiratory disorders.

 

A study involved 132 participants described as heavy smokers. Participants drank noni juice or a placebo for a month. The results showed that drinking 29 to 188 milliliters of noni juice significantly reduced total cholesterol and increased levels of high-density lipoprotein — a good form of cholesterol. Noni also reduced low-density lipoprotein — a bad form of cholesterol. The results were published in the 2012 edition of “The Scientific World Journal.”
