Noni juice is something really worth considering to include in your health regime to help with endometriosis and making use of the various nutrients and beneficial compounds it contains. Some of these compounds include excellent anti-inflammatory benefits and high levels of anti-oxidant properties.
Noni has a long traditional history in tropical regions for the prevention and treatment of many diseases including cancer, colds, diabetes, flu, anxiety, hypertension, pain, and other health disorders. It seems Noni fruit may also be a useful natural remedy for the treatment of anxiety and depression.
Noni can enhance feeling good via its ability to stimulate our bodies to produce serotonin which is known as the 'mood molecule’. Low serotonin levels in the brain are linked to clinical depression, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive behaviours, bulimia, sleep problems, migraine headaches, autism, drug and alcohol addictions and patterns of violent behaviour. Raising serotonin levels can make most of these problems disappear, without have to resort to drugs like Prozac - with all its side-effects.
Other compounds found in Noni include scopoletin which has anti-inflammatory, antihistamine, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It also lowers blood pressure, and as said earlier, helps to increase serotonin which will help regulate sleep, hunger and temperature. The anthraqunone found in Noni can help to control infectious bacteria.
Additionally, the terpenes contained in Noni helps with cell rejuvenation and its phyto-nutrients provide protection against free-radicals. The entire endocrine system gets a boost from Noni which has beneficial effects on the pineal gland, the thymus gland, the pancreas, adrenal glands and both male and female sex organs.
'Human intervention studies also indicate that noni juice may improve joint health, increase physical endurance, increase immune activity, inhibit glycation of proteins, aid weight management, help maintain bone health in women, help maintain normal blood pressure, and improve gum health.' ( 1 )

Noni juice is readily available in most countries. It is an acquired taste so you could add it to your favourite fruit juice to improve the flavour. However, it does come in flavoured varieties for those who do not like the taste. Noni also comes in powder form which you mix with fruit juice but it is not known if the full benefits are available in the powder form. Try to ensure that you buy organic noni juice from a reputable retailer.
