Found this...

What is Noni Juice?
Other names: Mengkudu, Morinda citrifolia

Noni, also known as morinda citrifolia, is a small, flowering shrub native to the Pacific islands, Polynesia, Asia, and Australia. It grows to a height of up to 10 feet high, and the leaves are dark green and oval shaped. The flower heads grow to become mature yellow fruit that have a strong odor.

Noni juice is widely available as the juice or liquid concentrate. It can also be found in tablet and capsule form.

Why Do People Use Noni Juice?
In traditional Polynesian medicine, noni (Morinda citrifolia) fruit has been used for many health conditions, such as constipation, diarrhea, skin inflammation, infection, and mouth sores. It has an unpleasant odor and taste, so it is believed to be a last resort fruit by many cultures. Manufacturers today sweeten noni juice to improve the taste.

Traditionally, the leaves of the noni tree were used topically for healing wounds.

Noni juice, like the juice of many other fruits, is a source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The antioxidants may help to prevent certain diseases and help slow age-related changes in the body.

Animal studies evaluating the effects of noni suggest that it may have anti-cancer, pain-relieving, and immune system-enhancing effects. However, these studies mostly used extremely high doses that would be difficult to obtain from taking the juice. More importantly, there's insufficient reliable evidence about the safety or effectiveness of noni for any health condition in humans.

Noni is heavily promoted for a very wide variety of conditions, such as arthritis, atherosclerosis, bladder infections, boils, bowel conditions, burns, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, circulatory weakness, colds, cold sores, constipation, diabetes, drug addiction, eye inflammation, fever, fractures, gastric ulcers, gingivitis, headaches, heart disease, hypertension, improved digestion, immune weakness, indigestion, kidney disease, malaria, menstrual cramps, menstrual disorders, mouth sores, respiratory disorders, ringworm, sinusitis, skin inflammation, sprains, strokes, thrush, and wounds. There is no real evidence, however, that noni is effective for these conditions.

Safety
There are no formally established side effects of noni juice. Due to the lack of evidence, noni should not be used by pregnant or nursing women, children, or people with liver or kidney disease.

Noni juice is high in potassium, so it should be avoided by people with kidney disease or those taking ,potassium-sparing diuretics, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors or angiotensin II receptor blockers, because it may result in hyperkalemia, the danger

I have a friend who's been after me to try Asea. No, it's not the acia drink. Something entirely different. But he has a different autoimmune disorder, and loved the results he got.

Hi Everyone,

The best juice I have found for crohn's is raw cabbage juice. When my son (23yo) has a severe attack I give him a shot of raw cabbage juice. He then takes a juice made up of cabbage, apple, carrot, 1 small beetroot & celery. All made fresh. I then add just the smallest amount of dried wheat grass. Mix well (no ice) and down the hatch. He always pulls a face but in reality it is quite pleasant tasting. He has also started of Iberogast (in the last 2 days). He thinks that his gut in improving. He managed to eat 1/2 a sandwich without feeling sick or having pain. Has anyone else tried iberogast for an extended period?

Sarah's mainstay juice seems to be carrot, spinach, celery, lemon, ginger and ice. I know she has now also started juicing kale and beetroot but I don't know in what combinations.

Hi rob101,

I started juicing after my last surgery and I love it!

This is my morning green drink:

2 apples, cored
2 big handfuls of spinach.
1 celery stick, chopped.
1 thumbnail length of ginger root, peeled.
1 lemon - juice only (use peel slice for zest).
1 medium cucumber.

I love drinking this in the morning, it gives me tons of energy.
Good luck with the juicing.....

My personal favorite is:
1 large or 2 small beets (I suggest using the yellow beets if you are in a flare, the red ones will turn your stool purple and once made me miss blood in my stool and first signs of a flare; they are also a little sweeter than the red ones)
1 small apple
2-3 large carrots
2 celery sticks
handful of spinach
1 small orange, mostly just for sweetness (only if my heartburn is in check)

The beets give me tons of energy for the day and I feel great when I am drinking this. It also freezes really well if you want to make a large batch at once.

I also really enjoy:
Kale
Banana
Orange Juice
Apple
Honey
(make this in the blender)

Great thread! I just borrowed my friend's juicer. How is everyone doing with their juicing? Not too much fiber? I can't do fiber at all.

The juicer leaves the fiber behind. Use the juicer once and you will see what I mean.

Noni juice is a new one to me not sure where to find that one .
I too used to drink a little Noni juice every morning. (Before I ever knew I had Crohn's Disease.) Did this for at least 2-3 years..would mix a little Noni with some Aloe, & later added in Mangosteen. Mixed all those into a Naked Juice, along with a Greens powder. And like someone else here said, I too had to stop eventually when I needed to save some money.
What I can remember about 1st beginning the Noni (before I added in the Aloe or Mangosteen) was saying to my husband something like "Wow - so THIS is what it's like to have a normal bowel movement!"
We'd heard about Noni in a cancer support group..a few people there raved about it.
I used to get mine at either Sprouts or Whole Foods, can't quite remember which. Also, don't get the ones made from concentrate or that are diluted or mixed with other things. Read about it so you know which is the best to buy if you decide to try it. Btw, it smells like dirty feet.
I've been considering drinking Noni again, (also the Aloe & Mangosteen..skipping the Naked Juice) & had been wondering if anyone here has been using it & what their experiences have been. Now that I have the CD Dx, wasn't sure whether I should go this route or not..

No they do not need to be, but obviously if you can afford to go organic, it would be be better. I personally don't as a rule.
