What Is Noni Juice? Benefits Of Drinking Noni Juice

Benefits of Noni Juice
Benefits of Noni Juice

Noni juice is derived from the fruit of the Morinda citrifolia tree indigenous to Southeast Asia, Australasia, and the Caribbean. There are a lot of claims of the benefits of noni juice which includes its ability to fight cancer, lower cholesterol, increase energy, and to cause weight loss.

We receive a lot of information in this age of technology and we often rely on big business to supply us with information about the benefits of products. Sometimes vested interests get in the way of information being truthfully relayed, and sometimes people wil tout the benefits of a produce and they don’t pan out.

I was glad to learn from my aunt about her experiences using noni juice, and what the benefits of noni juice were. My aunt started drinking noni juice for its benefits, and she didn’t know that one of the noni health benefits would be weight loss. This was an added benefit of noni juice, because her main goal was to drink noni juice to strengthen her immune system and to keep any cancers at bay.

Benefits Of Noni Juice – Weight Loss

I will start first with what I could see first hand which was weight loss, and I can say my aunt lost a lot of weight drinking noni juice. I also start with the weight loss benefits of noni juice because I realize that many people are really interested in losing weight, sometimes more so than strengthening their health. I wish for people to lose weight in a healthy way, and it appears that the benefits of drinking noni juice can help with that.

Nitric Oxide Fuels Noni Benefits

A theory as to why noni juice causes weight loss is that when it is consumed it produces nitric oxide in the body. Muscles use and metabolize a lot of energy and nitric oxide which is produced in the body is involved in the process. Nitric oxide pulls energy from different sources for muscles to use, and one of the sources is from fat cells in the body. This reduces triglycerides (energy) stored in fat cells, which reduces the weight of the fat cells. Drinking noni juice increases the amount of nitric acid in the body, which increases the amount of triglycerides that are removed from fat cells resulting in weight loss.

When my aunt started drinking noni juice she was wasn’t paying attention to her weight loss, because that wasn’t one of the benefits of noni juice she was looking for when she began drinking noni juice. She did pay attention to was her increased energy and good mood though. But some family members were paying attention to her weight loss, and some thought something might be wrong with her. The idea that something was wrong was the furthest thing from my aunt’s mind though because she felt great.

The whispers of concern, the whispers of cancer started to circulate, but my aunt wasn’t concerned. She told me she tried to assure family members that nothing could be wrong because drinking noni juice made her feel wonderfully energetic, and if she had cancer there was no way she could feel that way. To appease family members she did get checked for cancer and she received a clean bill of health.

What was a bit ironic was that she began drinking noni juice to strengthen her immune system and to keep any cancers away, but cancer was the thing some family members thought she had.

My aunt did learn that she was drinking too much noni juice and she has now cut back, but the weight still hasn’t come back. To reap the benefits of noni juice people would let the noni fruit over-ripen and would then pour off its juice. My aunt blended the whole fruit because she wanted the juice right away, and that made the juice too concentrated and too potent.

Now she lets the noni fruit over-ripen and then pours off the noni juice that had collected, though she does blend the whole fruit occasionally. Family members have tried to have my aunt stop drinking noni juice because it had made her too slim for some of their taste. My aunt isn’t concerned with losing any more weight so she has cut down on the amount she drinks, but she will occasionally drink noni juice because she loves the way it makes her feel.

Benefits Of Noni Juice

There are numerous claims about the benefits of noni juice. I was not familiar with noni juice and I am learning about its benefits. People claim that noni juice can cure cancer, reduce cholesterol, cause weight loss, increase energy, reduce fevers, cure ulcers, and more. There hasn’t been enough scientific research done to support these claims. I now have first hand experience with my aunt and other family members who have achieved weight loss and super increased energy drinking noni juice.

Taking Noni Juice

Before I get into how to prepare noni and its proper dosage, I must say that noni juice should be approached as a medicine to gain the benefits of noni juice. Take drink a bad tasting cold or flu medicine because we know it offers medical benefits. You will have to approach noni juice in the same way, for the medical benefits of noni juice.

Noni juice doesn’t smell good at all and you probably won’t be able to drink it like your favorit juice. Pure noni juice smells and tastes bad. My aunt is a trooper because she drank it straight, without a chaser. Noni juice bought in store is mixed with grape juice and other juices to make it taste and smell good, but they are less effective than pure noni juice. The reason is you will be drinking less noni juice per serving when drinking the mixed bottled noni juice. One tablespoon of pure noni juice will give you more noni juice than one tablespoon of mixed noni juice, and one bottle of pure noni juice will give you more noni juice than one bottle of mixed noni juice.

The dosage listed below is 1 tablespoon, and my aunt drank 3 ounces at a time some times. Since she was able to drink so much, I guess a person will probably just get used to it. Either that or the good feeling gained from drinking noni juice outweighed the bad smell and taste.

Noni juice should be prepared by putting a bunch of ripe noni fruit into a container and covering it. That’s it. It needs to sit and the juice will start dripping from the fruit. My aunt gives an explanation in the video. What she does now is to pour off a little of the juice daily, instead of letting all the juice drip from the noni fruits, which some people do and which takes time.

Regiment for taking pure noni juice:

Note: It takes around 3 weeks to start seeing results

This regimen is for taking the pure noni juice the way my aunt makes it. If you are buying store bought noni juice, follow the directions on the bottle.

  • 1 tablespoon every other day for 6 weeks, then
  • 1 tablespoon per week for 6 months, then
  • 1 tablespoon once per month
  • 1/2 hour before a meal or 1 hour after a meal

    Thanks a lot for this education . I have been brewing noni fruits and it always takes 6 months to harvest all the juice and now that you mentioned I can even blend it, I think I will try it.the nxt thing is I have hepatitis b virus and now the viral load is minimal. can I still take noni? thnx.

    • Aqiyl says:

      Have you been brewing noni and taking it while having hepatitis without any problems? If so I don’t see why continuing to take it will cause any issues. If you haven’t and are worried about it having a bad interaction with medication you are on for it, you can start with a small dosage and see how your body reacts.

  • Johnny says:

    Aqiyl….I enjoyed reading your wealth of information on Noni fruit. We have Nomi fruit trees here in our back yard in Panama. I never ready did research on the benefits of Noni until I read your information and others who wrote the benefits it provides. I just had a drink of Noni juice that was sitting in the kitchen the last five days and will take 1TP a day from here on. We wil be traveling to USA next week….is it ok to take the extracted juice in container legally on the plane? Thanks for the value information everyone is sharing.

  • Beth says:

    Works wonderfully for constipation. I have been using it for this purpose for years and it is the only thing that has been consistant.

  • Bebea Konie says:

    I am from Papua New Guinea in the south Pacific Island where Noni plant/tree is plentiful. I was reading about it today, 13 September 2014, because my wife was told by a close friend to apply Noni oil or cream to heal her both swollen knees, carries considerable weight. Over the recent two months she is having difficulty walking normally. She is in her late 30s and carries considerable weight. she loves fatty food.

    Thank you for sharing your Aunty’s weight loss story because that will encourage her because I advised her to cut her weight to assist her knees as we look for other help. I suspect she has artritis and the weight does not help her. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to read other responses as well. We will get her on Noni drinking soon while is now applying Noni cream.


  • Maureen says:

    I live in London and for a few years I purchased noni juice and believe that there are many health benefits. I am interested in the pure unadulterated juice, do you know where I can obtain some.
    Do you export Noni juice

  • kanika says:

    I have a Doubt I brought Noni juice but it Contains 99.6% Noni Juice and 0.4% Rasberry is that ok means i read that not to drink flavor noni juice as it is less effectiv, I mainly brought it for Weight loss.

    • Aqiyl says:

      Hi Kanika, yes flavored noni juice is less effective but it is better than nothing. You want to eat as much fruits and vegetables as you can while you are taking the noni, and cut down on the amount of fat you eat to help boost the effect of the noni juice. Remember the effects of the noni juice are not seen immediately because it needs to build up in your bod.

  • Nike says:

    I am happy to say that i am also among others who applied noni and it feels so great to drink it and see the result. I experienced once, I just started drinking it for anyhow. My young sister she got diabetes when she came back from Fiji she told me the bad news. At that time I was drinking noni juice. i told her to join me drinking noni. she drinks and then the next day she went to the clinic check her diabetes and she found out her diabetes was going lower. She came back she told me. Another good result I experienced from drinking noni is i have fallen hair. a few times drinking noni i never experienced the fallen hair again. Also my belly I got big belly after giving birth to my third child and i was very sad that my tummy is not going back to normal like before. But now after drinking noni a few times, i could feel and see that my tummy is slowly going back flat. That what I trully believed noni juice is very effective in many ways and of course i believe that noni is helping losing weight as well.

  • Sally says:

    Hi Aqiyl, How ru and ur aunt? You are doing a greeeeeat job by providing such a useful information about noni. :-) I want to use noni juice for weight loss and hair loss. Is it ok if I use it for these purposes only. Are there any kind of side effects I’m really scared of those. I have searched on internet there are both positive and negative sides of noni juice, confused what to do. But very desperate to lose weight I used to be 55 kgs now I’m of 75 kgs. Please kindly help me to take a decision. Waiting eagerly for ur reply. Have a nice day. Bye. Pleeease replyyyy.

    • Aqiyl says:

      Hi Sally, I am great and so is my aunt and also my uncle who started taking noni because of my aunt. From my own experiences I know it works for weight loss. I experimented taking noni for a while. I had been at a stable weight for over a year and I decided to try noni and see what it would do. I lost 5 lbs, which was a lot for me because I lost 25lbs and my weight loss stopped there. I didn’t need to lose any more weight so taking noni was an experiment for me.

      The thing with noni is that it gradually builds in the body overtime so you don’t see the weight loss at first. I say realistically you have to give it around 2 months of taking noni consistently. I only took half of the prescribed amount of the product I listed above. If you are constantly watching for weight loss immediately you will be disappointed. When I first started taking the noni my weight stayed the same for a while and I stopped checking my weight. I then checked 2 months afterwards because I was feeling lighter than usual, and I lost 5 pounds. I stopped taking the noni juice. I am still at the -5 lb weight loss.

      I don’t think anyone should use this as a miracle worker though, while still eating bad. If you want to reduce weight reduce your fat intake. The body can’t burn fat if you keeping putting a lot of fat into it. Stay away from processed food and exercise.

  • Theresa says:

    I found your article very informative. I have a friend that had kidney failure, he said that the noni juice did what the medicine could not do. After about 30 days of taking the noni juice, he revisited his doctor and there was a big difference in his results. Do you have any testimonials about the effect of noni with high blood pressure?

    • Aqiyl says:

      Hi Theresa,

      I don’t have any testimonials about the effect of noni on high blood pressure. I do see how noni might help indirectly reduce high blood pressure though. Noni will help burn s fat (saturated fat) which will help remove blood cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease.

  • Gloria says:

  • Somunaidu says:

    Would like to know if Noni Fruit Juice is a useful
    drink for those elderly people who have irregular
    motion passings.

    • Aqiyl says:

      Hi Somunaidu,
      I don’t know what and”motion passing” is. Please explain.

      • Somunaidu says:

        It’s a period when a person cant pass motion regularly. It’s irregular passing of motion or you can also say constipation.

        • Aqiyl says:

          Oh. I wouldn’t use noni for constipation. Fiber and water is needed. But natural fiber not pills. Fiber from vegetables and fruits, and water.

  • HowToJuice says:

    Using Noni Juice regularly can help stop hair loss, according to many major scientific studies.
    Additionally, using Noni products, like shampoos and conditioners and soaps, can help to stay away from the problem at the source by simply helping to regenerate the misplaced hair cells.

  • I know I’m kind late to the party but I have a few questions. After reading your article the other day I decided to purchase the juice online. I purchased mainly for the energy purposes. If you read my “Day In The Life…” post, you will see that my days start at 4 and end around 10. With work, family, exercise, etc I need all the energy I can get. My first question is, what else did your aunt do differently along with Noni juice? Where does everyone live to be able to purchase the actual fruit? Here in Buffalo, NY I can’t find it anywhere.
    Kristina Walters @ Kris On Fitness recently posted…I’ve Gone Nocturnal!My Profile

    • Aqiyl says:

      My aunt is a basically a vegetarian, but she was a vegetarian before taking the noni juice. Being a vegetarian has to assist the noni process, as compared to eating a regular diet.

      I think you will have to live in a region where the tree grows to purchase the fruit, like Jamaica or Hawaii.

      I haven’t been able to find 100% noni juice until now and I recently purchased a bottle from whole-foods, the same one I listed above.

      It takes 3 weeks to a month to start to see a difference and I am only around a week in so I have nothing to report yet. I am not taking noni for the energy because I don’t think my energy can get any higher.

      I am experimenting with it for weight loss. I don’t really have much weight I can lose and I don’t need to lose any weight. I am 5’9″ 157lbs. I want to see though if I can cut my body fat in half. My body fat has been stable since I adopted a plant based diet and my weight leveled of from me dropping from 180lbs to 157lbs.

      I am giving myself a month and a half before drawing any conclusion. The energy increase and the weight loss go hand in hand, so if I reduce my body fat I know it is positively affecting my energy level, though I may not be able to tell the difference.

      Even though the bottle I purchased says it is 100% noni, being bottled I still don’t think it will be as strong as the noni my aunt makes so I will give a little more time to work.

      • Thanks for letting me know. I expect it to arrive today. I plan to do a half marathon in May. I would be happy just to finish. In order to do even that much I have to lose weight. The energy plus weight loss you mentioned with your lifestyle has me interested. I will continue to read and any advice you can give will be greatly appreciated.

    • Aqiyl says:

      I read your article and I think it may be helpful if you eat more smaller meals. I eat 5-6 times a day which keeps me from eating a large meal late in the evening or night. You need energy throughout the day. Try eating more fruit snacks (bananas, oranges, dates) through out the day. If you only get the one break to eat a snack try to eat a couple of bananas at on time. You need more electrolytes to support your muscle function. Energy not not comes form carbs and fat, but from the electrolytes that support muscle functioning.

  • Regina says:

    I have used the Noni juice about three years ago, and I loss a lot of weight to the extent persons thought I was sick, I stopped using the fruit I never got back the weight until I started to eat junk again, now I’m back on it, one thing I know it’s gonna work this time I’m gonna blend it. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Aqiyl says:

      Hi Regina,
      Can you tell me which brand of the juice you used or if you made the juice from the fruit, and how much did you take and for how long? Please let me know how much weight you will lose this time around. Thanks.

    • Michele says:

      Regina, Can you please tell me the exact brand of Noni juice you used, to lose so much weight? And where exactly you bought it (online hopefully?) If not on line, even a postal address & phone number would be helpful. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I know for a fact that some noni juice pills worked for me because I used to take a product called proxcine and reduced 33 lbs effortlessly almost 2 yrs ago. However the proxcine is now named proxacine and for 8 months it continued working, but now it is made differently and it no longer reduces any weight whatsoever, while on it. Now, I GAIN WEIGHT while on Proxacine so I dumped using the Proxacine permanently. But now I am back up to needing to dump 30 lbs again. The only 2 products that ever worked for me for weight loss was sea kelp from Northstar Nutritionals and Proxcine noni juice pills–which are no longer sold anywhere! I will drink whatever noni juice is powerful & will work, regardless of the taste. Please e-mail me any potent noni juice info as soon as possible. email is: Thank you, Michele

  • margie says:

    I just started non I for the health benefits.Thanks for the weight loss imformation. I purchased the juice from whole foods store and it’s100% Non I juice.

    • Aqiyl says:

      Excellent Margie. I didn’t know Whole foods sold non juice. I have to check for noni juice the next time I go there.

  • Lily says:

    I have recently began to use the Noni Juice. (Yesterday… lol) I was told a while back that’s it good for a number of things. I began to take it as an energy booster, but is happy to know weight loss is a benefit (thanks Aqiyl). I felt energized when I woke up today so I know it is work.

    How I use it? :

    I wash the ripen fruit and place them (whole) in a glass jar with a tight seal for a few weeks or until the juice began to drip.

    Take a teaspoon of the pure juice and mixed (optional) with another fruit juice.

    What do you think?

  • maame says:

    are you not advising that we blend the fresh noni for its juice because it can cause dramatic weight loss? did you aunt face any complications when she did that and lost weight very fast? can u tell me how long she drunk the fresh juice blend to see that transformation. i am getting married in December and i need to drop 2 dress sizes, i am now a size 18. If there are not health complications, can i blend the fresh fruit and drink it everyday?

    • Aqiyl says:

      You can blend it as my aunt did, but just remember it is more potent that way. Now she lets the liquid drip of most of the time, but she admits she sometimes blends it also. My aunt didn’t have any complications. The thing to remember is that it takes time for the effects of the Noni to build in the body. You may not see any noticeable weight differences in the first couple of weeks but then after that the weight comes off quickly. Check the timetable above for taking Noni juice.

  • Aurelia says:

    I had to look it up today because I started preparing noni to make the juice but was so eager that I put a small one in my juicer with some fruits to make a juice right away. I woke up this morning with a flatter stomach and stepped on the scale to find I was about 3 lbs lighter than the last time I weighed myself! Will keep a regimen going with noni to see what happens.

    • Aqiyl says:

      Great Aurelia just be careful with the amount you use. Look at the guidelines for how to prepare it in this article. You really need to give it a couple of days to really get a better picture of your weight. We all lose about 2lbs overnight buy put it back on through through the day. Remember prepare the noni properly and then monitor your health, waistline, and weight to be a better understanding of what the noni juice is doing for your. Remember to use the over ripe juices, and not the juice of a fresh noni.

    I remember drinking straight noni and mixed it with straight Gogi juice. It lifted me up like no other.

    Our health food store sells Noni without any sugar, or other juices added. They also sell the gogi,and when my husband went on trips. I wouldn’t cook at all, and only did raw foods, juices, noni, gogi, etc…

    Also, a long time ago I drank the brand from Morinda, and remember it removing back pain and other joint pain. I also had a before and after thyroid tests and my hormones improving.

    • Aqiyl says:

      ” Nitric oxide pulls energy from different sources for muscles to use, and one of the sources is from fat cells in the body. This reduces triglycerides (energy) stored in fat cells, which reduces the weight of the fat cells. Drinking noni juice increases the amount of nitric acid in the body, which increases the amount of triglycerides that are removed from fat cells resulting in weight loss.”

    Hi Aqiyl,

    I have never seen the noni fruit. Do you know where I can buy it in the U.S.? I have only had the juice that was mixed with grape juice. I didn’t notice anything different, plus I didn’t drink it for long.

    Thank you for sharing your aunt’s experience!

      Hi Evelyn,
      From what I understand it takes about three weeks to start to notice its effects. It takes time to build in the body. I don’t know where to buy the fruit here, but some people have it or the pure noni juice shipped to them from people who have access to it. I found a site online that claims to sell 100% noni, and it is certified organic. The link is here: . A coworker of mine’s father drinks noni juice and I am waiting to get the information from her about which one he drinks, and where he gets it from. She used to take noni juice when she was a child in Jamaica, but she stopped taking it while her father continued to take it and benefits from it. She is supposed to start taking it again and she will let me know what her experiences are and I will relay them. I see no posts were found for you comment luv?

But, I was not sure till I read this article on noni juice. If you do not mind, I would love to talk about this fruit maybe on one of my post and link back to your blog for the elaboration. I really love your blog; it is obvious that you have done a deep research before you put the information to your audience. Moreover your site is very neat.

      Thanks Sis for sharing. Please let me know what your results are when you do try it.

I enjoy that eating this way fortifies my energy throughout and makes it easy for me to carry a good mood throughout the day, and I am always looking for more natural foods to continue this trend. Noni juice appears to fit right in line.

    Hubby makes noni juice and we drink it for boosting our immune system. It took a while to get used to the smell but the taste isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I’m small enough as it is so I don’t need the weight loss(smile) but it’s good to know your aunt’s story so that I can share with others.
