What is Noni?

  • Noni is a small evergreen tree found from Southeastern Asia to Australia, especially in Polynesia; it often grows among lava flows.
  • Noni is also known as Great morinda, Indian mulberry, Beach mulberry, Hog apple, Canary wood, and Cheese fruit.
  • Historically, many parts of the noni plant were used both externally and internally for a variety of health purposes, alone or in combination with other herbs.*
  • Today, the principal part of the noni plant used for health purposes is the ripe fruit, which is used as a dietary supplement for various chronic diseases.
  • The noni fruit is most commonly combined with other fruits to make juice. Preparations of the fruit and leaves are also available in capsules, tablets, and teas.
  • In laboratory research, Noni has shown antioxidant, immune-stimulating, and tumor-fighting properties. These results suggest that Noni may warrant further study for various diseases.
  • Noni contains a substantial amount of potassium. People who need to restrict their intake of potassium should consult a health care provider before using Noni.
