Provo, Utah (Vocus) April 21, 2010
Tahitian Noni International announced that two new phytochemicals have now been identified in noni fruit from Tahiti that were previously unknown to the world. In a peer-reviewed study published by the prestigious Journal of Natural Products, TNI’s Research and Development team of Shixin Deng, Afa Palu, Brett West, Chen Su, and Bing Nan Zhou reported that two completely new compounds, as well as seven other known compounds isolated in the study, exhibited good anti-inflammatory effects. Besides the two new compounds, three of the seven known compounds were isolated for the first time in the noni fruit.
Noni fruit from Tahiti is the basis for Tahitian Noni® Bioactive Beverages™, the world-wide leader in bioactive beverages. “For years, people have been drinking Tahitian Noni® Original for its healthful benefits,” stated Brett West, director of Noni Benefits Research. “We are now beginning to isolate the specific compounds within the juice that are responsible for those benefits. We have also isolated two new compounds that are not found anywhere else in the world.” The two new compounds identified have been given the names Tahitianin A and Tahitianin B by their discoverers.
With the largest noni research center in the world, Tahitian Noni International is committed to investigating, isolating, and documenting the benefits of the noni fruit from Tahiti. There are over 150 bioactive compounds that have now been isolated in the noni fruit, including 12 unique iridoids. Iridoids have been studied by scientists for over 50 years and have been linked to over two dozen real health benefits. The 14 human clinical studies have proven the efficacy of Tahitian Noni bioactive beverages.
