"NONI Juice (Morinda Citrifolia), made from the Morinda plant, has been used for well over 2000 years as a source of nutrition and medicine for people throughout the Pacific region. Virtually all parts of the Noni fruit's botanical properties have been preserved in our juice creating a tonic with unique chemical structures found to exert an array of healing properties. Our Noni Juice is ripened using traditional methods and then cold squeezed to extract its juice. This process increases the potency of the 140+ active components (enzymes, phytonutrients, trace minerals and vitamins) and helps to preserve and naturally stabilize the juice.
Pharmacology and Research of Active Ingredients:
As Morinda’s chemical profile is being revealed its traditional uses are being qualified with Western scientific paradigm. Morinda has over 140 components, six of which have been identified to establish why this plant has been used as a healing food over the centuries. Law requires that we clearly state that we are in no way making any claims of the health benefits of Noni juice. The following are a list of some of the active components and the medical research on these components. Please also see references at the bottom of the page.
Scopoletin dilates vasculature & lowers blood pressure; anti-bacterial & anti-fungal; anti-inflammatory; analgesic; histamine-inhibiting; arthritic conditions; allergies; sleep disorders; migraine headaches; depression; Alzheimer’s disease. This neoflavonoid polyphenol / coumarin derivative has been shown to possess strong antioxidant activity, while preserving glutathione reserves and the action of superoxide dismutase, and to inhibit the production of malondialdehyde. Further, it has displayed hepatoprotective qualities by reducing the release of glutamic pyruvic transaminase and sorbitol dehydrogenase. Scopoletin also has an effect against Escherichia coli.
Glycosides (flavonol glycoside; iridoid glycoside, “citrifolinoside”) Anti-cancer effects: DPPH free radical scavenging activity; inhibition of UVB-induced Activator Protein-1 activity in cell cultures.
Polysaccharides (glucuronic acid; galactose; arabinose; rhamose; glycosides; trisaccharide fatty acid ester) immuno-stimulatory; immuno-modulatory; anti-bacterial; anti-tumour; anti-cancer.
Damnacanthal an anthraquinone compound has been shown to inhibit RAS function and induce normal behaviour in some pre-cancerous cells. Damnacanthal strongly suppresses the effect of glial cell line-derived neurotropic factor (GDNF) induced neurite formation in human neuroblastoma cells. Antiseptic & antibacterial effects in digestive tract (Staphylococcus, Shingela, Salmonella).
Ursolic acid is a triterpenoid and is effective at reducing chronic skin inflammation and has anti-ulcer properties. Ursolic acid has been shown to possess anti-tumour activity and an ability to modify haematopoiesis after chemotherapy.
Xeronine / Proxeronine was the first alkaloid isolated by Dr Ralph Heinicke in 1977. It is hypothesised that the precursor Proxeronine combines with the enzyme proxeroninase and serotonin to produce xeronine. Xeronine is thought to be absolutely essential to the functioning of proteins throughout the entire system and that levels of this alkaloid are strongly compromised by the Western diet. Xeronine preserves protein integrity, often disturbed by or inducing illness. Xeronine is considered to be responsible for the wide applications of Noni juice.
Phytonutrients, antioxidants, and trace compounds. Noni may be the richest plant source of antioxidants and phytonutrients on earth.
Activity of Noni compounds central analgesic activity, thyroid hormone production, sedative activity, antihelmintic activity, inhibition of RAS function (pre-cancerous cells), active against Lewis lung carcinoma, activity against leukemia, and splenomeagly, induction of human antioxidant enzyme systems, and phase II detoxification enzymes.
Ingredients: Pure Noni Juice from whole fruit. No water added or pasteurisation.

- Resveratrol is contraindicated in those hypersensitive to any component of a resveratrol-containing product. Pregnant women and nursing mothers should avoid the use of resveratrol-containing supplements.
-Soy isoflavones are contraindicated in those who are hypersensitive to any component of a soy isoflavone-containing product. Pregnant women and nursing mothers should avoid the use of soy isoflavone supplements pending long-term safety studies.
-Calcium Ascorbate. Although oxalic acid is formed when ascorbic acid is metabolized, this is highly unlikely to cause renal problems in healthy individuals without pre-existing renal problems or who are not predisposed to increased crystal aggregation.
-Calcium supplementation is contraindicated in those with hypercalcemia. Conditions causing hypercalcemia include sarcoidosis, hyperparathyroidism and hypervitaminosis D.
-Magnesium is contraindicated in those with renal failure. It is also contraindicated in those with high-grade atrioventricular (AV) blocks unless those with high-grade AV blocks have artificial pacemakers." - TJ ClarkNZ$ 37.99 237ml

"T J Clarks catalyzed vitamin C is a pure form of ascorbic acid with the addition of a proprietary blend of mineral compounds. The addition of these mineral compounds may promote a greater production of ascorbate lactone derivatives, providing greater tissue availability and higher retention of ascorbate than other vitamin C products. The use of these mineral compounds also serves to replace valuable electrolytes including, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium.
T J Clarks Vitamin C may be beneficial in the prevention and treatment of;
-Stress related conditions, including irritability, anxiety, nervousness, headaches and fatigue.
-Ageing, allergies, arteriosclerosis, arthritis, cataracts, circulatory complaints, colds and flu, and excessive use of anti-inflammatory steroid drugs.
-Excessive intakes of polyunsaturated fats, sun exposure, heart disease, infections and immune dysfunctions, and combating the effects of pollution, smog, smoking.
Vitamin C may also decrease poor resistance to infections; reduce adriamycin cardio toxicology, and thrush.

-Although oxalic acid is formed when ascorbic acid is metabolized, this is highly unlikely to cause renal problems in healthy individuals without pre-existing renal problems or who are not predisposed to increased crystal aggregation. Those with pre-existing kidney stone disease or a history of renal insufficiency, defined as serum creatine greater than 2 and/or creatinine clearance less than 30, should exercise caution in the use of higher than RDA amounts of vitamin C.
-Ascorbic acid is involved in modulating iron absorption and transport. It is highly unlikely that healthy individuals who take supplemental vitamin C will have any problem with iron overload. However, those with hemochromatosis, thalassemia, sideroblastic anaemia, sickle cell anaemia and erythrocyte G6PD deficiency might have such a problem if they use large amounts of vitamin C.
-Aluminium-containing antacids: The intake of large doses of vitamin C used at the same time as aluminium-containing antacids has been reported to increase urinary aluminium excretion, suggesting increased aluminium absorption from these antacids. However, this is not well documented.
-Aspirin: Chronic use of high dose aspirin may lead to impaired vitamin C status.
-Chemotherapeutic agents: Vitamin C may potentiate the anti-neoplastic activity of cisplatin, doxorubicin and paclitaxel. It may also help ameliorate the cardio toxic effect of doxorubicin and the nephrotoxic effect of cisplatin. This is based on in vitro and animal studies. There is a concern by some researchers that supplemental doses of vitamin C may diminish the efficacy of some chemotherapeutic agents.
