Noni and our Immune System

Noni and our Immune System

Our body has an amazing protection mechanism called the immune system. It is designed to defend us against millions of bacteria, microbes, viruses, toxins and parasites that would love to invade our body.....it is important to understand the immune system so that we give it the support needed to stay healthy...especially during cold and flu season!

An immune system is a collection of mechanisms within an organism that protects against disease by identifying and killing pathogens and tumor cells. It detects a wide variety of agents from viruses to parasitic worms, and distinguishes them from the organisms own healthy cells and tissues in order to function properly. Detection is complicated as pathogens adapt and evolve new ways to successfully infect the host organism.

When something dies, the immune system, along with everything else, shuts down. In a matter of hours, the body is invaded by all sorts of bacteria, microbes, parasites etc. None of these things are able to get in while our immune system is working, but the moment our immune system shuts down, the door is wide open.

The immune system is complex and interesting. Our immune system works around the clock, in thousands of largely unnoticed ways. It comes to our notice when it stops working, or when it does something that has a side effect we can see or feel. When we get a cut, bacteria and viruses enter our body and our immune system goes to work to eliminate the invaders and heal the skin. We inhale thousands of airborne germs every day. Our immune system deals with all of these, usually without a problem. Occasionally a germ gets past the immune system and the cut becomes infected or we catch a cold. The infected cut or cold or flu is a visible sign that our immune system failed to stop the germ. The fact that the cut heals and we recover from our cold is a visible sign that our immune system is able to eliminate the invader.

When our immune system is sluggish, works at less than full capacity or breaks down altogether, we get sick. The disease could take the form of a vitamin or mineral deficiency, organ degradation, diabetes, cancer or a viral or bacterial infection, to name just a few.

Components of the Immune System:

There are many parts of the immune system. The most visible is the skin. It acts as a primary boundary between germs and our body. Part of our skins job is to act as a barrier in much the same way we use plastic wrap to protect food. Skin is tough and generally impermeable to bacteria and viruses.
Our nose, mouth and eyes are also entry points for germs. Tears and mucus contain an enzyme called lysozyme that breaks down the cell wall of many bacteria, and saliva is also anti-bacterial. Once inside the body, a germ deals with the immune system at a different level. The major components of the immune systems are:

  • Thymus
  • Spleen
  • Lymph system
  • Bone marrow
  • White blood cells
  • Antibodies
  • Complement cells
  • Hormones

When the Immune System Breaks Down:

When the immune system breaks down it leaves the body susceptible to an array of diseases. Allergies and hyper-sensitivity to certain substances are considered immune system disorders. Other examples include auto-immune diseases such as juvenile diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and anemia.

Man-made drugs may alleviate pain and symptoms from many ailments, but the side effects of those drugs are often as bad as or worse than the original disease. Drug companies and doctors freely admit prescribed drugs have side effects – they weigh up whether the ‘cure’ is worse than the disease.

Noni and the Immune System:

The best protection we can offer our body is to support and nourish the immune system before it weakens, becomes sluggish or breaks down altogether. Our body needs essential nutrients for it to function at peak performance. Taking a daily dose of Tahiti Trader 100% Organic Island Style Noni Juice provides the body with a natural “power pack” of the essential vitamins, mineral and nutrients that our immune system needs to protect us.

Research has shown that the chemical constituents of Noni juice assist in immune system modulation, increase energy, help with insomnia, relieve joint pain, help sprains and athletic injuries, give routine pain relief and help inflammation, help in the fight against cancer, improves skin condition, assists with hypertension, helps diabetes, lowers blood fat and assist cholesterol, helps gut and bowel remedies such as constipation and irregularity.

Whether we need to support our immune system to strengthen it to fight an existing disease, or support it to stay healthy, a daily dose of Tahiti Trader Original or Island Style Noni Juice improves and assists the immune system in its fight to keep us in good health.

The Miracle of MAX-updated!

The Miracle of MAX-updated!

Most pet owners consider their pet to be “part of the family”.  So it’s no surprise that a pet caregiver’s emotional response would be similar in nature to the response we often see in people providing care for a sick family member.   

(Update below with a video!)

The following is a true story about how Noni Juice saved the life of a loved pet named Max.

“In January of this year (2018) we took a weekend camping trip. During the camp out our 10 year old German Shepard mix, Max, became quite lethargic. He had lost quite a bit of weight before this and we were about to take him in for a ultrasound to find out about the weight loss. Anyway, when we got home Max show no signs of perking back up to his old self. I scheduled a vet visit and prepared myself for the worst. During the visit we found out that Max was in the final stages of liver cancer and was given only a couple of weeks to a few months of life. Needless to say we were heartbroken. We even held an Irish wake so family and friends could come say goodbye to him."
The next day at work I was telling my friend Jim about my dog and he asked if he could run an experiment with Max. Not having anything to lose, I said YES of course. Jim then told me about Noni Juice and it's beneficial effects on the liver. The next day he gave me a bottle of Tahiti Trader Organic Noni Juice. He told me to buy some Milk Thistle. At every meal for the next 5 months we gave Max 4 ounces of Noni Juice. He slowly but surely started to regain energy and look as if he was putting weight back on.


After about 5 months we took Max back to the Vet to get a status update. The vet didn't remember at first the grave condition Max was in during his last visit. After he stepped out and looked at Max's chart he came back in and was shocked at how good he looked. Max had indeed put back on over 10 pounds of the 23 he had lost and the tumor on his liver had shrunk somewhat and there wasn't anymore leaching. I informed the vet of the feeding regiment we had Max on and he seemed surprised. So we agreed to continue Max on the Tahiti Trader Noni Juice for the next six months and then return to see what if any of the tumor is left. We have a measurement of 7 inches round. In January we will have Max's final results. I can't thank Jim enough for giving me the Noni Juice for the last six month and letting me know about this powerful healing Juice. I will be putting our order in soon and we will be keeping Max on the Juice the rest of his days.”

 

It is now February 2019 when we got an update on Max...over a year after his cancer diagnosis!

The Wonderful Benefits of Tahiti Trader Noni Juice

The Wonderful Benefits of Tahiti Trader Noni Juice

The Wonderful Benefits of

Tahiti Trader Noni

Research has shown that the nutritional compounds of Noni juice assist in immune system modulation, increase energy, help with insomnia, relieve joint pain, help sprains and athletic injuries, give routine pain relief and help inflammation, help in the fight against cancer, improves skin condition, assists with hypertension, helps diabetes, lowers blood fat and assist cholesterol, helps gut and bowel remedies such as constipation and irregularity.

 

 Healthy immune system:

The best protection we can offer our body is to support and nourish the immune system before it weakens, becomes sluggish or breaks down altogether. Our body needs essential nutrients for it to function at peak performance. Taking a daily dose of Tahiti Trader Noni Juice provides the body with a natural “power pack” of the essential vitamins, mineral and nutrients that our immune system needs to protect us.

 Whether we need to support our immune system to strengthen it to fight an existing disease, or support it to stay healthy, a daily dose of Tahiti Trader Noni Juice improves and assists the immune system in its fight to keep us in good health.

Healthy Cholesterol Levels:

Research has shown that Noni can significantly improve Cholesterol levels. A study was done where researchers gave 132 adults who were heavy smokers 29.5 milliliters of Noni (Morinda Citrifolia fruit) juice per day for thirty days. Another group drank a placebo. The clinical trial was randomized, double blind and placebo-controlled.

After the 30 days, those in the Noni groups showed significantly lower levels of inflammation and corrections in their respective cholesterol levels. The has-CRP (C-reactive protein is a substance produced by the liver that increases in the presence of inflammation in the body) levels went down by 15% among the Noni groups. Homocysteine (Homocysteine is an amino acid and breakdown product of protein metabolism that, when present in high concentrations, has been linked to an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. Elevated Homocysteine levels are thought to contribute to plaque formation by damaging arterial walls) levels decreased by 24% among the Noni group. The triglyceride levels of the Noni groups went down from 29% to 41%. The LDL-(Bad)cholesterol levels of the Noni group went down by 9-28% after the thirty days, and HDL-(good) cholesterol levels went up by 49 to 57 mg/dL.

Restful Sleep & Better Mood:

Noni stimulates Serotonin and Melatonin, two very important hormones. Serotonin affects mood, emotions, and sleep; imbalance in levels of serotonin may contribute to depression. Melatonin regulates the Circadian rhythm, which helps you sleep; keeping this regular will help you get a good night’s rest, also improving your mood.

Pain Management , similar to common pain relievers:

Regardless of what or where the pain is located, pain keeps the body tense and unable to relax.  Noni contains a power compound called Scopoletin.  Scopoletin is known for its pain relieving effects on humans and animals.  A study published in the ACTA Pharmacologica Sinica found that Noni does not have any toxic levels regardless of how much is taken.  In fact, raw Noni pulp is found to be 75% as strong as morphine when it comes to pain management.

Fights Inflammation:

Noni juice is a great anti-inflammatory. Certain compounds in Tahiti Trader Noni inhibit the activity of inflammatory molecules in the body, which would normally trigger the pain response in the body. 

Based on the traditional use of Noni fruit to relieve the pain of inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, a team of German researchers studied the effects of Noni fruit in reducing sensitivity to pain among test animals. Researchers added a 10-percent solution of freeze-concentrated Noni fruit puree to the drinking water of laboratory mice, which were then subjected to pain using a hot plate test. In an article in the January 2010 issue of “Phytotherapy Research,” they reported that the Noni juice produced a reduction in pain sensitivity comparable to that of Tramadol, a prescription analgesic used to treat moderate to severe pain.

Increased Energy & Physical Endurance:

Noni juice is also said to enhance energy and well-being…and now that claim has been backed up by modern research.

Researchers in China gave aged mice Noni juice. They then compared them in a swim test with young mice and with aged mice that did not drink the juice. The Noni-drinking mice were able to swim longer and had more endurance than their non-juice-drinking counterparts. In fact, their performance was similar to that of the young mice. The researchers concluded: “These results confirm the reported use of Noni juice to combat fatigue, improve endurance, and increase overall physical performance.”

Improves Digestion:

Noni fruit contains many types of Phytochemicals, Macronutrients and Proxeronine that may help promote the secretion of digestive enzymes. In turn, this can help stimulate and support the digestive system and help to breakdown food for its efficient conversion into nutrients. Tahiti Trader’s Noni Juice has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that may also help relieve the symptoms of peptic ulcer and other bacterial infections. Therefore, Noni fruit and its juice can be used to improve digestive function, cleanse the digestive tract, treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and constipation. Simply consuming one ounce of Tahiti Trader Noni juice every day about 30 minutes before breakfast may be beneficial for treating such digestive problems.

Increased Brain Function:

Tahiti Trader Noni juice is known to prevent brain cells from dying by supporting the health of mitochondria. Simply put, the juice has a therapeutic effect on Neurodegeneration.

And then, we have the antioxidants in the juice. They combat oxidative stress, which can harm the neurons. One Japanese study talks about how Noni juice can protect the brain from a stress-induced decline of cognitive function.

Noni juice also helps combat other related issues like stress and anxiety. It can even aid in depression treatment.

Supports heart health:

Aging is also associated with a higher risk of heart disease. Over time, the endothelial cells – or the cells of the blood vessels and heart – begin to deteriorate. This triggers hardening of the arteries called atherosclerosis. However, according to BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, Noni can put a stop to this.

It works by blocking the interactions needed to kill endothelial cells. These benefits are all thanks to the antioxidants found in Tahiti Trader Noni juice.

Increased feeling of Well-Being:

One of Tahiti Trader Noni’s active constituents is Pro-Xeronine which the body makes into Xeronine. Xeronine is an important nutrient which tends to be lacking in the modern diet. By consuming Tahiti Trader Noni we can redress this situation. One of Xeronine’s functions is to allow better absorption of amino acids such as tryptophan which makes serotonin in the brain.  Xeronine acts as a supreme painkiller because it works with endorphins in the body to numb pain and produce feelings of euphoria. Endorphins are the hormones that are responsible for producing good feelings in the body. They bind to certain proteins just like the Xeronine does. When Xeronine and an endorphin are bound to a protein, the Xeronine channels the energy from the water into the endorphin and the endorphin creates a good feeling within you. Without Xeronine, endorphins worthless.
