Fortunately. if Noni juice is taken on an empty stomach."The Pharmacologically Active Ingredient of Noni" By Dr. Maria Stewart described how the Hawaiians solved many of their medical problems by drinking infusions of the fruit of the Noni tree (Morinda citrifolia). Thus most biochemists have overlooked this relatively abundant molecule which occurs in most tissues. Even though Noni fruits have a negligible amount of free xeronine. In contrast to most plant colloids. the amount of free alkaloid is minute. Xeronine is a relatively small alkaloid that is physiologically active in the picogram range. this colloid contains neither sugars.for an understandably good reason. a technique which I had developed for isolating xeronine from the pineapple plant. namely about 16. Yet identifying the pharmacologically active ingredient of Noni has been difficult . Noticing that the clinical claims of efficacy for bromelain and Noni were practically identical. and is well below the limits of normal chemical analytical techniques. Heinicke University of Hawaii 47 In The Bulletin.M. (Sometimes!) After many discouraging years of research I eventually identified this ingredient as a new alkaloid to which I gave the name "xeronine". were impressed with the efficacy of these options. Here the chances are high that it may become activated. R. April 1972. Today Noni is one of the best raw materials to use for the isolation of xeronine. animals and microorganisms. Unless this pro-enzyme becomes properly activated.) It occurs in practically all healthy cells of plants. (Editorial note: a picogram is one trillionth of a gram. which I have named "proxeronine". The molecular weight is relatively large. Noni juice will cause few pharmacological reactions. the critical proenzyme escapes digestion in the stomach and enters the intestines. but the yields were excellent. The technique worked! Not only was I able to isolate the same compound from Noni fruit. however. The active ingredient is not present in the plant or fruit! Only after the potion has been drunk does the active ingredient form. However. is a strange molecule.000. they contain appreciable amounts of the precursor of xeronine. Since about 1972 I had been attempting to identify the unknown ingredient in "bromelain". Noni fruits also contain the inactive form of the enzyme that releases xeronine from proxeronine. This precursor. nor nucleic acids. which gives crude preparations of this enzyme their potent pharmacological properties. The missionaries. I tried the same techniques on Noni fruit. Sometimes! My search for the active ingredient in Noni began with a series of studies on the pineapple plant. nor amino acids. who frequently had to minister to the body as well as the soul. .

which in turn have receptor sites for the absorption of xeronine. however. I am proposing that the primary function of xeronine is to regulate the rigidity and shape of specific proteins. Noni. Other proteins become potential receptor sites for hormones after they react with xeronine. Noni juice can be a valuable herbal remedy. hormone systems. or immune bodies. Certain of these proteins are the inert forms of enzymes which require absorbed xeronine to become active. in using Noni juice as a medicine or tonic. It is for this reason that aloes. the well being hormones. A physiological disease. for example senility. the odoriferous chemicals can be removed from the . we have the usual clinical situation where administering one simple drug causes an unbelievably wide range of physiological responses. Only if the disease is specifically caused by a lack of xeronine will xeronine alleviate the symptoms of the problem. None of my colleagues would touch the untreated juice. These are just a few of the many exciting actions of this newly discovered alkaloid. I am basing these hypotheses both on clinical results with bromelain pills as well as on a limited number of laboratory and animal experiments carried out with pure xeronine. and other body organs. For no disease. may be caused by a deficiency or imbalance of a number of different biochemicals as well as by malfunctioning blood vessels. and ginseng in improving digestion may be ascribable to this action. If one is dying and all other remedies have failed. In the meantime I can suggest certain hypotheses which can act as a guide in planning experiments.48 Many years of research are still required to demonstrate convincingly how xeronine functions at the molecular level in a cell. Thus xeronine can alleviate certain subsets of almost any known disease. For a price. my colleagues still found it unfit to drink. however. There are some practical problems. Thus the action of ginseng. The flavor of juice made from ripe Hawaiian Noni is terrible. Thus xeronine. Absorbing xeronine on these proteins changes the shape of the pores and thus affects the passage of molecules through the memanes. Even after I had removed most of the disagreeable flavor (several organic acids) from the juice. bromelain and Noni in making a person feel well is probably caused by xeronine converting certain brain receptor proteins into active sites for the absorption of the endorphin. I believe that each tissue has cells which contain proteins. by converting the body's procollagenase system into a specific protease. bromelain and Noni are such effective treatments for burns. Thus the action of bromelain. will xeronine be a panacea. the blood vessels. The action which xeronine has on a person depends upon which of his tissues has a suboptimal level of xeronine. Since these proteins have different functions. Other proteins form pores through membranes in the intestines. then and only then will the average person drink Noni juice. quickly and safely removes the dead tissue from burns. Since Noni is a potential source of this alkaloid.
