Preliminary Investigation of the Anti-inflammatory Properties of an Aqueous Extract from Morinda citrifolia (Noni)

The fruit juice of Morinda citrifolia (noni, Indian mul-berry, duppy soursop) is commonly used as a "miracle" cure in many tropical countries including Tahiti, Hawaii, and the Caribbean islands. In Jamaican folklore practice, noni juice is used to treat diverse conditions, including hypertension, diabetes mellitus, bronchial asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, some cancers, and sexual dysfunction. Evidence has recently been presented for the presence of a polysaccharide-rich substance with anti-tumor activity in noni fruit juice. It has also been reported that an extract from the root of the noni plant exhibited significant analgesic activity in the CNS of mice.
