Lipid Profiles Chart

TAHITIAN NONI® Juice helps maintain cholesterol at existing healthy levels*
In order to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system, you have to keep your cholesterol under control. In research presented to the American Heart Association, Dr. Anne Hirazumi-Kim indicated that drinking three to four ounces of TAHITIAN NONI® Juice daily helps sustain cholesterol at existing normal levels.*

Research

1. May lower cholesterol and triglycerides in adult smokers
In this study presented to the American Heart Association, TAHITIAN NONI® Juice was given to 106 adult smokers ranging from 20-60 years in age. After one month of drinking the juice, researchers found that the average cholesterol level of these TAHITIAN NONI® Juice drinkers fell from 235.2 to 190.2. Another group which received a placebo experienced no significant change. http://www.americanheart.org/presenter.jhtml?identifier=3038030
2. A complete review of TAHITIAN NONI® Juice
Noni has been used by Tahitians for thousands of years, but only recently has it become a popular item for mainstream consumers. This popularity has raised several questions about the noni fruit, and in this study Tahitian Noni scientists conduct several tests to verify that the noni fruit and TAHITIAN NONI® JUICE are, in fact, safe for consumption. http://www.blackwell-synergy.com/doi/full/10.1111/j.1750-3841.2006.00164.x
