Hello, I'm Ty Mason from TheDiabetesCouncil.com, researcher, writer and I have type 2 diabetes. Today I'm going to answer the question, is noni juice good for diabetes. But before we get into that, make sure you download my free diabetes management book which also includes a diabetes grocery shopping guide (foods to eat and avoid).
Noni is an intriguing topic. When I was researching the fruit, I came across the following alias’:
Ba Ji Tian, Bois Douleur, Canarywood, Cheese Fruit, Hai Ba Ji, Hawaiian Noni, Hog Apple, Indian Mulberry, Jus de Noni, Luoling, Mengkudu, Menkoedoe, Mora de la India, Morinda, Morinda citrifolia, Mulberry, Mûre Indienne, Nhau, Noni Juice, Nono, Nonu, Pau-Azeitona, Rotten Cheese Fruit, Ruibarbo Caribe, Tahitian Noni Juice, Ura, Wild Pine, Wu Ning, Yor, eagugu, nhau, nui, nho, nhor, prey, thom, noko, nona, , nuna, oko, pain killer, patje, pemii, riro, ruibarbo, te non, rra, yeiawa harachan, and yo.
I was thinking while researching, something with that many names is like a master criminal in the old movies. Or a spy! So many alias’ it would be hard to figure out what was what.
Noni is a small evergreen tree in the Pacific Islands, Southeast Asia, Australia, and India. The tree often grows among lava flows. Historically, noni has been a way to make a red or yellow dye for clothing. It was also viewed as a medicine, usually applied to the skin. The fruit is yellow-greenish-white in color and large, with a pebbled surface. The ripe fruit has a characteristic cheese-like, bad odor.
There are many claims of the healing power of noni. According to an article written for WebMD, the juice of the noni is thought to help or even cure arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, muscle aches and pains, menstrual difficulties, headaches, heart disease, AIDS, cancers, gastric ulcers, sprains, depression, senility, poor digestion, atherosclerosis, circulation problems, and drug addiction.
However, the effectiveness of noni for any medicinal uses has not been proven. The FDA has issued numerous warnings to those who manufacture noni about health claims that simply haven’t been proven.
I am sure this question was asked because of some of those claims.
Noni could be safe when the fruit is consumed as food. However, there is concern that taking noni in medicinal amounts is potentially unsafe. Noni tea or juice has been suspected of causing liver damage in those who drink it on a regular basis for a significant amount of time.
And if you want noni juice, expect to pay about $20-30 for a 32 ounce bottle. That is pretty steep.
Is noni juice good for diabetes? I am going to say no. There is so little scientific research on the matter, so many FDA warnings and we just don’t know enough to recommend this product at all.
I hope this answered your question is noni juice good or bad for diabetes. Don’t forget to get your diabetes management book.
Let me know if you have any other diabetes related questions.
