While antioxidant compounds in noni can inhibit cancer risk. Although the leaves and fruit contain anti-inflammatory and anticancer substances, but according to him, the maximum benefit is the very ripe fruit that has been soft and runny because the active ingredients are more abundant than the non-ripened noni fruit.
And that is best consumed directly compared to consuming processed noni. Because the benefits of noni will be reduced if it has been processed because the active substances it contains have decreased function compared to consumed directly.
And even though it's rich in benefits, things that need to be considered when consuming this fruit are not every day, especially for people with kidney problems. "It is better not to be consumed regularly but varied with make or other vegetables and the high potassium content in noni is not good for people who have kidney problems," he said.
Meanwhile, although it has not been proven that noni is harmful for pregnant women, he suggests avoiding it. Likewise for mothers who are breastfeeding, temporarily not consuming noni.
