What is noni juice?
Noni juice is a tropical drink derived from the fruit of the Morinda citrifolia tree. This tree and its fruit grow among lava flows in Southeast Asia, especially in Polynesia. Noni (pronounced NO-nee) is a lumpy, mango-sized fruit that is yellow in color. It’s very bitter and has a distinct odor that is sometimes compared to stinky cheese. Polynesian people have used noni in traditional folk medicine for over 2,000 years. It’s commonly used to treat health issues like constipation, infections, pain, and arthritis. Today, noni is mostly consumed as a juice blend. The juice is packed with potent antioxidants and may provide several health benefits.
What is your Liver?
The liver is the largest internal organ in the human body, and it is also one of the most important. It is necessary for survival; a human can only last up to 24 hours without liver function. The liver has many jobs, such as changing food into energy and cleaning alcohol and poisons from the blood and it also makes bile, a yellowish-green liquid that helps with digestion.
The liver plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of other functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, and detoxification.
The liver is also the largest gland in the human body. It lies below the diaphragm in the thoracic region of the abdomen to the right of the stomach and overlies the gallbladder. The adult human liver normally weighs between 1.4 – 1.6 kilograms and it is a soft, pinkish-brown, triangular organ.
What can go wrong with our Liver?
There are many kinds of liver diseases. Viruses cause some of them, like hepatitis A, hepatitis B and hepatitis C. Others can be the result of drugs, poisons or drinking too much alcohol. If the liver forms scar tissue because of an illness, it’s called cirrhosis. Jaundice, or yellowing of the skin, can be one sign of liver disease. Like other parts of your body, cancer can affect the liver. You could also inherit a liver disease such as hemochromatosis.
Our liver is very resilient in the face of liver problems. It can remain functional after losing most of its cells to disease. It can regenerate in a few weeks — even after much of it has been removed during surgery. But our liver isn’t indestructible. Excessive alcohol consumption over many years is a leading cause of liver disease.
Too much alcohol can make a normal liver swell with fat, causing a condition called fatty liver. If the fat becomes inflamed, it can lead to either alcoholic hepatitis, a liver problem that causes serious but often reversible liver damage, or cirrhosis, which causes irreversible liver damage. Because of extensive scarring, a cirrhotic liver shrinks to a fraction of its normal size.
Viral hepatitis can lead to serious liver problems and is the most common type of liver disease. Hepatitis causes inflammation of the liver. The three types of hepatitis viruses — hepatitis A, hepatitis B and hepatitis C — can all be prevented.
Effects of noni juice on liver
There have been many reports on Noni and the liver – some suggesting that people with renal problems need to consult their GP before taking Noni as a supplement. A complete nutritional analysis of Noni juice reveals that it is a good source of antioxidants, and is relatively high in the mineral potassium (K), which, although associated with many health benefits, also needs to be taken with care by people with renal problems.
Potassium promotes healthy heart rhythm, muscular contraction, nerve function, energy production and fluid balance. Insufficient potassium is associated with fatigue, muscle weakness and spasm, and insomnia.
A healthy body needs a healthy liver, so taking care of our liver will give us energy, vitality and help us on our path to wellbeing.
