Noni Juice. Hmmmmmm... We've never tried it but we've heard a lot about it. Our research on the internet is troubling. Evidently it tastes terrible, which would suggest that it might make a good medicine (just kidding!), but most reports suggest that it doesn't appear to do much of what it claims to do. A few scientific studies have been made, and the stuff might have some anti-cancer properties, but it's pretty clear that the companies marketing the juice make a lot of claims without a lot of proof.
So we're curious to hear from our readers -- have you tried this juice? If so, what are your thoughts? Has it cured you of any condition? Is Noni Juice a Yea or a Nay?

[YEA] 09/11/2006: Marcy from San Mateo, CA: "Noni Juice cured the pain from osteoarthritis; also, no colds or flu for the last year. After a few days of taking tahitian noni juice, I was able to stop using my cane, take longer walks, get up and down stairs better. I'm no longer on any meds for my knee. It also helps me to sleep soundly all night. I've been taking a maintenence dose of 2 TB twice daily for about 3-4 years. My family uses noni juice and noni cream for all sorts of first aid remedies....it also cured a friend of ulcers."Replies
[YEA] 07/26/2010: Al from Phoenix, Az replies: "Hello I know for sure is a yea. Why? Because both my parents use to take more than 10 pills daily back in 1997, now my mom only takes 6 ounce of noni juice daily my dad's the same thing. My mom had heart problems, thyroid, high blood pressure and so on. My dad had arthritis, high blood pressure, diabetic. Before, everytime they miss a pill out of the 10 plus I was talking about they get sick. To me its very simple. FDA will never approve noni or accept the the goodness of it cause of political reasons and also a pay cut for them and the doctors. Noni has been good to me my wife and our 7 kids, and even my parents. Natural cure is better than most medicine but they wont tell us that. Thank you very much. God Bless"
[YEA] 04/03/2006: Nell from South Boardman, Michigan: "I've been taking noni for about 3 years. Before starting on noni I had a hard time getting up out of chairs or even bed without hurting and moving like a really old person. Now I move up stairs without hanging onto the handrail and sometimes stopping halfway. Works for me!"
[YEA] 10/09/2005: Deborah from San Francisco, CA: "NONI juice, two ounces per day has helped my arthritis immensely."
04/18/2013: Don from Melbourne, Australia: "Today I turned 47, but in 2002 my BP was 190/140 sugar levels through the roof and cholestoral way too high. 11 years of daily drinking 1-2oz of a noni juice from Tahiti, and my BP is around 140/85, (still high but I am 125kg or 280lbs or so) - cholestoral is fine and sugars so close to normal doctor isnt worried. Although I've added 20kg in that 11 years, I have more energy than before, and I laugh at those who get a cold or the flu (I may get a sniffle for 24hrs, but that is rare) I have never taken prescribed meds for any of the above issues..."
[YEA] 09/27/2009: Moman from Wasilla, Alaska: "Hi everyone I was diagnosed with Aml a little over a year ago, I started taking Noni but being diabectic it kept my sugar up. I dont know if it was beneficial or not.I started using the noni without all of the taste good ingredients, this stuff is tough to drink but since i have been on it, (about 6 Months )I have stop taking my blood pressure Meds as my blood pressure is usually 110/76, Not bad for a 70 year old guy.

[YEA] 09/21/2006: Sharon from Pecatonica, IL: "I am a cancer patient and as a result of the meds I have to take I sometimes after months of treatment end up having to take something for constipation. I use a shot glass and take Noni juice twice a day. I happen to use a double shot. twice a day. But then I am also taking some strong pain pills (which tend to cause constipation). When I use my Noni faithfully I do not have near the problems. If the constipation is persistent I eat fresh peaches or grapes with it. I also give Noni to my granddaughter who is 7 years old and has had problems in the past and we have really noticed a difference with 1 shot a day as maintenance for her."
[YEA] 07/26/2006: Becky from Buffalo, NY: "A close, young relative of mine has cancer of the throat, jaw, tongue, etc. He is in the final stages of the disease and was told the treatments were not working.. He is now taking Noni juice through his Gastric Feeding tube and seems to be improving. The tumors seemed to have shrunk... the lesions are draining...he had been given the last rights.... he wanted to look in the mirror after the tumors shrunk..., he is writing notes again and is resting more comfortably and he is on pain medications also... It will be a Miracle for sure if the Noni cures him."Replies

[YEA] 05/02/2007: Jane from Dunedin, New Zeland: "In the first instance I found Noni amazing. I was suffering from thrush, & tiredness etc. I stayed on it for about 3 months for 'detox';and it got rid of waste like no other.(parasites included, saw them in the loo bowl)
I gained new energy levels and mood improved. My partner also went on it for weight-loss and deep cleansing. He was very happy with the results since he did not drop his in-take of food or do any exercise.
However and I don't know why I have felt further treatments of noni since have not given the same amazing 'oomf' of energy. I have definitely noticed it pays to get a high-quality Noni (like a rich dark coloured syrup) as other makes of noni are simply watered down hence far less effective (& weak) in treatment. cheers,"
[YEA] 01/17/2007: Mary from Honolulu: "About 10 years ago I got diverticulitis and peritonitis and was hospitalized for a week. My doctor told me that I would need an operation on my colon once I got healthier. My friend gave me some homemade noni juice to drink every morning and I took it for the 6 months after my hospital stay. When I went back to the doctor for a 6 month check up and to schedule the surgery, I no longer had any bad spots left on my colon. There was no reason to have surgery. My doctor put up the before and current xrays of my colon and asked me "What the heck did I do to cure myself like that!" I now make it myself and take it every morning."Replies

01/07/2012: Emelda from Willemstad, Curacao replies: "Could Mary in Honolulu please send me the recipe for making noni juice? Thank you."
11/10/2012: Regis from Panama City, Panama replies: "I planted a noni tree in my back yard about 10 years ago. It is huge now. Gives me all the noni I need. We harvest it and let it ripen until it stinks. Then we put it in a bowl in the frig and after about 2 months, this brown liquid has formed at the bottom of the bowl. Then we put it through the juicer. Using about 2 tablespoons in a small glass of grape juice (optional) on an empty stomach. This stuff is amazing! Good luck!"
[YEA] 01/07/2007: Louise from Ottawa, Canada: "I bought some Noni capsules just as a tonic and possible colon cleanser. After having only taken 1 capsule per day for 3 days I feel better have more energy and amazingly my desire to smoke has diminished down to 2 per day. And I actually forget that I am a smoker! I also had a stubborn little discoloration on my face for over 2 years that I would put make up on. I went to put make up on it and was thrilled to see it was no longer there. They say Noni is good for the skin, internal parasites and for addictions. I solemnley swear in my experience it does definitley work for those three things."Replies
09/10/2008: Susan from Milton, WA replies: "I wanted to know how to use Noni for quitting smoking. I have the capsule kind - how many should I take?"
[YEA] 09/16/2008: Brenda from Weyburn, Saskatchewan, Canada: "I had a ganglion on the top of my hand. I was scheduled for surgery. I started taking noni juice; an ounce a day. Within two weeks the ganglion disappeared! The ganglion has never come back. That was five years ago."

[YEA] 08/12/2007: Jackie from Grand Rapids, MN: "a couple of yrs. ago, i ordered proxenal via internet contains morinda citrofolia or noni plant. i took it for exactly 45 days and the roots of my white/grey hair started turning glossy and dark like a young person. well, at the time i liked my grey hair and stopped immediately. Lately, i wanted to try to get some dark hair but couldn't remember the name of the product and started black strap molasses. After reading about Noni juice the morinda citrofolia name rang a bell and i found proxenal again on line only being upgraded to proxicine. When i purchased the proxenal, it was advertised to be the only vitamin/mineral the human body needs.I didn't notice real dramatic changes in energy level like i have had with BSM, and ACV, but the dark hair roots was really noticeable"
[NAY] 06/20/2007: Linda from Atlanta, GA: "I have had heartburn from time to time over the years. Then I married a man who was always positive that his health was far better than mine - or anyone else's. In fact he talked as if I had one foot in the grave at the age of 32. He was always trying one obscure allopathic drug, remedy, herb, etc. He had read about a juice that according to a magazine of case studies that was produced by a company that sold the juice, it was such a miraculous health elixir that it could even cure cancer if taken in large amounts. All he talked about for a year was that juice and how I needed to try it. It was expensive and that was my excuse for a while. Finally I decided to humor him and drink the juice. If it didn't improve anything then at least I would hear no more talk of it. If it did improve my health overall then I would be a believer. The dosage of this juice was 1 - 2 ounces per day, but my husband insisted that I drink 16 ounces per day - because I was in such bad health (which was not true). I drank the awful juice and immediately had fire-breathing dragon heartburn. It was extremely painful but my husband insisted that it was the toxins coming out of my body - I should just stay with it and the heartburn would subside and my general health problems will disappear. The juice tasted like dilled blueberries but was supposedly made from some rare fruit on an island called noni fruit. I humored my husband at the expensive of my own personal discomfort of dealing with continual - non ending, severe heartburn day and night. After 4 cases of the juice had been consumed and there were no health benefits shown, but one new health problem (severe heartburn) I told my husband enough is enough - I will not drink that fire-breathing dragon juice ever again and I don't want to hear a single word about it ever again. I stopped drinking the juice but the severe heartburn did not go away. I gave it some time - to get it out of my system. Still had it - though not fire-breathing, scorching hot as before, but still severe. I began drinking baking soda mixed with water to ease the pain, but this only lasted a few hours at best - same with antacids. My doctor prescribed Previcid and that helped. It was great to live without heartburn but then I stopped taking the prescription because I do not want to take a pill every day for the rest of my life - that surely would damage my liver over time and cause a serious health problem. It has now been years since my last sip of the noni fruit juice and I sit here at 4 AM telling you my story because I went online in search of a home remedy for acid reflux that is longer lasting than baking soda and a better alternative than pills but instead found this site - saw you were looking for answers on why there is an increase in the cases of GERD over the last 30 years and thought I'd offer my personal experience of how an abundance of a juice making fantastic claims changed my life by giving me a permanent health issue - GERD. I believe if we expose ourselves to the wrong foods/drinks/ingredients over an extended period of time, we can cause a great variety of harm to out digestive system. What is wrong for one person may not be wrong for another. We are all different and I think we have come to assume through the practice of medicine and self medication from the readily available plethora of over the counter medications, we have begun to ignore the natural signals our bodies use to alert us to problems. After the first 1 - 2 days of fire-breathing dragon heartburn that began immediately after drinking the juice until it later became constant, I should have listened to my body - not my husband and stopped drinking it. There was obviously an ingredient in that juice that was reacting with my normal PH levels or something else within my stomach and/or esophogus in a very bad way."Replies
07/18/2009: Rui from Lisbon, Portugal replies: "Thats pretty sad, it seems you got an overload of juice, as you said, its 1 to 2 oz per day, maybe a bit more, but surelly not 16oz per day... I'm sad to hear that, but perhaps you can try the juice again at 1ox and see the diferrence, perhaps even it can cure your condition at therapeutic dossage..."
10/05/2009: Barbie from Manila, Philippines replies: "HI, I have had GERD for about 9years and spent a lot of money in the hospital, underwent laboratory rocedures, medcations, water theraphy for years as well as taking leafy vegestables for 1 year. I also had chronic bad breath for about 11 years now. these two things made my social life miserable. Till my faith of continue taking natural remedy to cure the GERD. First, I'd like to explain how patients experience the food from the stomach rise up to the esophagus (reflux) and the abdominal pain whenever we eat or hungry is simply because when the lower esophageal sphincter doesn't function properly, acid and food can reflux up from the stomach into the esophagus. This can lead to pain (heartburn) and damage to the lower esophagus. This damage can cause strictures (narrowing) of the esophagus, and eventually, cancer of the esophagus. Frequently, dysfunction of the lower esophageal sphincter is associated with a hiatal hernia, in which the lower esophagus and upper part of the stomach slips up into the chest. I TRIED TAKING OATMEAL AS HOT BEVERAGE AND GRADUALLY IT HEALED MY GERD. I STARTED TAKING OATMEAL WITHOUT SUGAR AND FLAVOR FOR YEARS, AND NOW, I'M FREE OF GERD. I CAN EAT WHATEVER I WANT. At first those who suffer from GERD MUST AVOID ALL TOMATO BASE FOODS, OILY, MILK, COFFE, JUICES AND OTHER DAIRY PRODUCTS becaue it trigger the feeling of bloatedness, and the food are unable to dissolve within 3hours. Foods must be dissolve from the stomach within 1 hour and goes down to the small intestine for another routine. i just wnat to share this. i hope this will help to those who have GERD. I'm now free from GERD but still on battling my chronic bb and the problem is within my tongue...I hope I could find remedy to it. thanks"
01/25/2010: Raf from Makati, Philippines replies: "Hi Ms. Barbie, i was diagnosed last week with sliding hiatal hernia but i am suffering for almost 4 months from acid reflux. I lost almost 45 lbs during this period. I am very desperate to cure this disease for i might loss my job in if im not well within 2 mos. I will try your suggestions and pray it works.. God Bless..."
08/14/2011: Mooniize77 from Lake Tahoe, Ca replies: "all of you with gerd, hiatal hernias and indigestion need to start out with one oz of fresh squeezed wheat grass. Read up on what good wheat grass should look like and go to your local smootie shops to look for it. I gaurantee it will heal all of these complaints. You must however cut out all the acid junk from your diet. Look up an alkaline diet. I've studied these topics for years and years. I had all these above mentioned problems and cured them all. The only issue is when you go on a healthier alkaline diet and add one oz of wheat grass at least five times a week, you will start to detox. Stick with it. It will change your life. You may find it unpleasant or burp it up at first.. But take it on an empty stomache earlier in the day when ur up and about.. Eat about hour n half after. Within two weeks you wont feel your gerd, or indigestion as long as you adhear to a better diet cutting out all the acid foods. Look up acid alkaline charts. Change your life! You can do it! It will work!!"
01/24/2012: Tink from New York, Ny replies: "Maybe you were sensitive, or allergic to Noni? It's better to start off with small doses of anyway.
I've had obvious positive benefits from drinking the juice. Mostly to do with increased enery levels and no episodes of the flu. I have tried a lot of differrent brands of Noni juice, and I find the reconstituted ones don't seem to work for me. The brands mixed with other juices seemed just fine though."

05/20/2013: Donna Kay from Kansas City, Missouri replies: "To Barbie: Even natural supplements need to be taken according to directions. I also had beginning stage of GERD & HAD ulcers until I started taking 4 Apple Cider Vinegar tablet a day. It also cured my severe constipation. I just started the Noni juice & hope it boosts my immune system."
