Noni. Properties and its effect on the immune system

Properties of noni

Noni has been used as medicinal food in many cultures around the world for thousands of years. Its traditional use immunity regarding includes the fight against bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic infections. It is used to help address the respiratory problems, sore throat, gum infections, fever, headache, diarrhea, and indigestion. Is considered to have anti-inflammatory and is also a common remedy for joint pain.

Scientific studies on Noni

There is a great leap in scientific understanding of how noni works. Recent studies are helping to explain how noni improves the immune system.

Dendritic cells are important cells of the immune system identify an invader and then help develop the most powerful immune response. A 2009 study showed that the Noni activates dendritic cells and, consequently, increased production of B cells that produce antibodies against a specific invader. This kind of momentum in the adaptive immune system is important in the fight against influenza and other infections.

Another study showed that Noni works at once to activate killer cells, a vital part of the frontline of the immune system. However, another study shows that Noni activates macrophages (innate immunity) by stimulating their receptors (2-cannabinoid receptor CB2), while increasing the production of interferon (a signal that stimulates dendritic cells to produce the adaptive immune response).

One study showed that Noni can strengthen the natural defense system against E. coli.

A number of researchers agree that the Noni activates multiple immune system cells. In an animal study showed a significant antitumor activity, information that confirms a better immune response to fight infection.

Other interesting studies show that Noni exerts anti-inflammatory and protects the liver. One study showed that Noni helps the liver to make less xanthine oxidase, a finding that supports the traditional use of Noni for gout. Noni is not only toxic in high doses it has been shown to reduce liver damage after a toxic exposure. Therefore, the necessary Noni eases inflammation of the natural immune response and inflammatory protects healthy cells, while helping the liver to work better under pressure.

Another indication is that Noni has relaxing properties, able to help enhance GABA neurotransmitter system. This feature helps to relieve stress during the day (which is immunosuppressive) and that taking Noni is a good choice as a support nutrient before bedtime because it may contribute to sleep.

Taken together, these data show that Noni activates macrophages and natural killer cells of our immune system (innate immunity), while also stimulating dendritic cells to activate T cells and contribute to the production of antibodies by the greatest power adaptive immune system.

All this demonstrates the power of Noni for sore throats, respiratory problems and bacterial infections and viral infections. So the regular intake of Noni can be an excellent decision for the improvement and activation of our immune system during the season of colds and flu.
