Noni, also called as Indian Mulberry, is a fruit-bearing tree in the coffee family, Rubiaceae with a pantropical distribution. Its native range extends across Southeast Asia and Australasia, and was spread across the Pacific. It is a small to medium sized tree (3–10 m high) and has large, simple, dark green, shiny and deeply veined leaves. The fruit has a pungent odor while ripening, hence known as cheese fruit. Studies have shown that Noni has anti-diabetic, anxiolytic and sedative, analgesic, anti-hyperuricemic, anti-viral, anti-parasitic, wound healing properties. Medicinally, fruits are considered tonic, febrifuge, emmenagogue, anti-congestive, blood-purifying. Leaves are used for infantile diarrhea and dysentery and to heal wounds, ulcers and the pain of gout.
