In atmosphere nitric oxide is considered as pollutant but within body it has several health promoting properties.In the year 1992 Nitric oxide was voted as Molecule of the year by science magazine.Noni being rich in amino acids Arginine boosts production of nitric oxide in our body.Researches suggest Nitric Oxide having the following health advantage
It relaxes arteries thereby contributes to normal blood pressure and heart function.
It boost resistance power of body
helps in regulation of insulin thereby controls diabetes.
helps in improving memory by increasing blood circulation to brain.
Our body contains cox enzymes which speed up our body's production of hormone like substance called prostaglandins.There are two types of cox(Cyclooxygenase) enzymes namely cox-1,cox-2.
Cox-1 good enzyme is responsible for protecting the body's stomach lining and kidneys.The cox-2 bad enzyme is largely responsible for causing pain and inflamation.Injury,diseases and trauma cause cox-2 enzyme to produce prostaglandins which cause pain and inflammation.Generally nonsteroidal anti inflammatory drug are consumed to stop cox enzymes in our body from working.When taken over long period of time traditional medication for chronic pain and inflamation such as aspirin,ibuprofen inhibits both cox-1 and cox-2.The discovery of cox-2 created a frenzy in pharmaceutical world,everyone wanted to find out substance that would inhibit cox-2 without harming the production of cox-1.Noni selectively inhibits the cox-2 enzyme while allowing the cox-1 enzyme to continue functioning
Modern science was introduced with the benefits of Noni.The studies revealed that elements present in noni help our body in various ways.In our body to survive our body requires a substance known as xeronine.Noni contains xeronine that increases tha absorption of nutrients.Xeronine has become less and less available due to depleted soils and changes in diet.Poor diet,hyper active lifestyle and aging all increase the demand of xeronine.An inadequate supply of xeronine in our body leads to illness is prolonged and injuries are slower to heal.When Proteins combine with xeronine the combination becomes a powerful tool that produces energy and sends chemical signals between cells for proper and healthy cell growth and maintenance
The climatic changes modern agricultural methods,modern lifestyle have immensely impacted the health of people.These days people rarely take balanced diet due to work pressure and reckless eating habbits.The
remedy for these problem is nothing but adding Nutritional Supplements to our daily diet.
For dealing with stressful life and polluted environment body demands more nutrients for protection like Nourish Noni.
Smoking,alcohol,tea,cofee and oral contraceptives deplete nutrients from body reserves.
Foods loose their original nutritional value due to prolonged storage,high temperature cooking,peeling,washing
Various life stages like Pregnancy,Lactation,Sports activity,Adolescence,old age require more nutrients supplements like Nourish Protein,Nourish Nourish Protein rich and nourish energy rush help to fulfill the requirements.
Milling removes more than 30 nutrients from wheat flour eg Chromium,Zinc and Magnesium which leads to Diabetes and heart diseases.
Regular intake of sugar causes depletion of B vitamins and Chromium from body reserves and causes Diabetes,Heart disease worsen arthritis,weaken immune system etc.
According to research studies our soil is nutrient deficient due to chemical and repeated farming.

Vitamins C & E - Researchers at the Biochemistry department of Lucknow University (LU) India have found that Vitamin C and E can help prevent heart attacks and other cardio-vascular diseases.
Successful clinical trials have led to the the research being published in various journals such as like Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry (Canada), Experimental and Clinical Cardiology (Europe), PUBMED USA (part of the US National Library of Medicine).
Professor M K Mishra of the varsity's Biochemistry department said, "In our study we have found that Vitamin (C and E) can efficiently regulate the blood and oxygen supply to heart. These vitamins also act as clot busters, thereby making the heart to function normally." Trials were conducted on 65 heart patients. Potentially harmful free radicals formed inside the heart were reported to have been reduced considerably.
NONI CONTAINS BOTH VITAMIN E AND C
Vitamin E - Antioxidants such as vitamin E help protect your cells against the effects of free radicals, (potentially damaging by-products of energy metabolism).
Free radicals can damage cells and may contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease and cancer. Vitamin E also may help prevent the formation of blood clots, which could lead to a heart attack. Vitamin E has also been shown to play a role in immune function, in DNA repair, and other metabolic processes [Traber MG. Vitamin E. In: Shils ME, Olson JA, Shike M, Ross AC, ed. Modern Nutrition in Health and Disease. 10th ed. Baltimore: Williams & Wilkins, 1999:347-62.].
Observational studies have associated lower rates of heart disease with higher vitamin E intake. A study of approximately 90,000 nurses suggested that the incidence of heart disease was 30% to 40% lower among nurses with the highest intake of vitamin E from diet and supplements.
Researchers found that the apparent benefit was mainly associated with intake of vitamin E from dietary supplements. High vitamin E intake from food was not associated with significant cardiac risk reduction [New England Journal of Medicine 1993;328:1444-9 PUBMED ABSTRACT].
Vitamin A - helps regulate the immune system, which helps prevent or fight off infections by making white blood cells that destroy harmful bacteria and viruses.
Vitamin A deficiency diminishes the ability to fight infections. In vitamin A-deficient individuals, cells lining the lungs lose their ability to remove disease-causing microorganisms. This may contribute to the pneumonia associated with vitamin A deficiency [Ross AC. Vitamin A and retinoids. In: Modern Nutrition in Health and Disease. 9th Edition (edited by Shils ME, Olson J, Shike M, Ross AC). Lippincott Williams and Wilkins, New York, 1999, pp. 305-27.].
NONI CONTAINS VITAMIN A
Vitamin B6 - The nervous and immune systems need vitamin B6 to function efficiently. [Gerster H. The importance of vitamin B6 for development of the infant. Human medical and animal experiment studies. Z Ernahrungswiss 1996; 35:309-17. [PubMed abstract] from Office of Dietary Supplements.
A deficiency of vitamin B6, folic acid, or vitamin B12 may increase your level of homocysteine, an amino acid normally found in your blood [Selhub J, Jacques PF, Bostom AG, D'Agostino RB, Wilson PW, Belanger AJ, O'Leary DH, Wolf PA, Scaefer EJ, Rosenberg IH. Association between plasma homocysteine concentrations and extracranial carotid-artery stenosis. New England Journal of Medicine 1995; 332:286-291. [PubMed abstract].
There is evidence that an elevated homocysteine level is an independent risk factor for heart disease and stroke [Rimm EB, Willett WC, Hu FB, Sampson L, Colditz GA, Manson JE, Hennekens C, Stampfer MJ. Folate and vitamin B6 from diet and supplements in relation to risk of coronary heart disease among women Journal of American Medical Association JAMA 1998; 279:359-64.].
The evidence suggests that high levels of homocysteine may damage coronary arteries or make it easier for blood clotting cells called platelets to clump together and form a clot - although the Office of Dietary Supplements USA say "However, there is currently no evidence available to suggest that lowering homocysteine level with vitamins will reduce your risk of heart disease." Read on though...
Think about this for second - what is the natural result of a blocked artery, say because of platelet build up described above? Well aterial blood flow stops ... meaning very grave health issues indeed as a result. We leave it to you to decide whether it's wise to allow such build ups and clots to occur in your arteries.
Vitamin B12 - helps maintain healthy nerve cells and red blood cells and is also needed to help make DNA, the genetic material in all cells. Intestinal disorders such as Crohn's disease, an inflammatory bowel disease that affects the small intestines may result from malabsorption of vitamin B12.
NONI CONTAINS BOTH VITAMIN B6 & B12
Zinc - The immune system is adversely affected by even moderate degrees of zinc deficiency. Severe zinc deficiency depresses immune function [Shankar AH & Prasad AS. Zinc and Immune Function: Biological basis of altered resistance to infection American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 1998; 68:447S-463S].
Zinc is required for the development and activation of T-lymphocytes, a kind of white blood cell that helps fight infection [Beck FW, Prasad AS, Kaplan J, Fitzgerald JT, Brewer GJ, Changes in cytokine production and T Cell subpopulations in experimentally induced zinc-deficient humans American Journal of Physiology 1997; 272:E1002-1007]
NONI CONTAINS ZINC
Magnesium - Lack of magnesium in one's diet has often been shown as associated with increased risk of sudden-death heart attack, as well as when drinking water magnesium levels were low [Epidemiology 10: 31-36, 1999; Heart 82: 455-60, 1999; American Journal of Epidemiology 143: 456-62, 1996]
Calcium - among many functions, calcium is important in the battle against bone loss and Osteoporosis as you age. It's also been found in clinical studies to decrease blood pressure significantly when taken via low fat dairy produce combined with fresh fruit and vegetables. [Miller GD, DiRienzo DD, Reusser M, McCarron D. Benefits of dairy product consumption on blood pressure in humans: A summary of the biomedical literature. Journal of the American College of Nutrition 2000;19:147S-164S.] NONI CONTAINS BOTH MAGNESIUM & CALCIUM
Due to lack of space and time, it's impossible to list every single vitamin, mineral and amino acid included in NONI and show in depth medical findings on what they can individually they do for you, but The Office Of Dietry Supplements at the National Institutes of Health is a great place to find out about them. Most of the information provided above has come fron this authoritative Government body.
So just to summarise, NONI contains all of the following in abundance - hence you can understand why it can rightly claim to be a 'SUPERFOOD' - A, C, E, B1, B2, B6, B12, Niacin, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid (B5), Folic Acid, Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Zinc, Copper, Chromium, Manganese, Molybdenum, Sodium Potassium plus Anthraquinones, Glycosides, Sterols, bioflavanoids, carotenoids and more...
How do Life Health Make their Noni Juice?
1) Our traditional growers are fully trained and experienced in the art of choosing only the perfectly ripened fruits for processing. Making Noni juice is a time honored tradition in the Pacific islands.
2) The ripe fruit is fermented in barrels for 60 to 90 days. This process is left to the island people themselves as their lifestyle allows them the luxury of time richness.
"Brix" level testing has found this to be optimum time frame, but this can also vary from island to island. The pulp is then gently pressed to extract the juice. A course mesh is used to enable all the puree to be extracted. Like fine wine, this process cannot be shortened for pecuniary gain. The full potential of the product must be realized.
3) All our gardens are certified Organic. This lengthy process has been three years in the making. The active elements within the fruit can be easily destroyed through chemical fertilization and pesticide sprays. All our fruits are harvested from trees that are grown in their natural organic environment.
4) The raw juice is in barrels or bladders which incorporate special "breathers" to keep the "live" elements within the product in a stable state.
5) There is no need for elaborate scientific formulas, which few people can really appreciate, to describe the process of making Noni juice. Our juice is simply manufactured the same manner as the Polynesian people have done it for centuries, but using today?s hygiene and manufacturing standards to preserve the active ingredients for a far greater period. Nothing in this process needs to be hidden under the guise of complicated scientific specifications.
