									                           ROLE OF NONI IN CELLULITIS

Cellulitis is an acute inflammation of the connective tissue of the skin, caused by infection
with staphylococcus, streptococcus or other bacteria

Causes, incidence, and risk factors
The skin normally has many types of bacteria living on it, but intact skin is an effective barrier
that keeps these bacteria from entering and growing within the body. When there is a break in
the skin, however, bacteria can enter the body and grow there, causing infection and
inflammation. The skin tissues in the infected area become red, hot, irritated and painful.

Cellulitis is most common on the lower legs and the arms or hands, although other areas of
the body may sometimes be involved. If it involves the face (erysipelas), medical attention is
urgent. People with fungal infections of the feet, who have skin cracks in the webspaces
between the toes, may have cellulitis that keeps coming back, because the cracks in the skin
offer an opening for bacteria.

Risk factors for cellulitis include:

      Insect bites and stings, animal bite, or human bite
      Injury or trauma with a break in the skin (skin wounds)
      History of peripheral vascular disease
      Diabetes -related or ischemic ulcers
      Cracks or peeling skin between the toes
      Use of immunosuppressive or corticosteroid medications


      Localized skin redness or inflammation that increases in size as the infection spreads
      Tight, glossy, "stretched" appearance of the skin
      Pain or tenderness of the area
      Skin lesion or rash (macule):
          o    Sudden onset
          o    Usually with sharp borders
          o    Rapid growth within the first 24 hours
      Warmth over the area of redness
      Fever
      Other signs of infection:
          o    Chills, shaking
          o    Warm skin, sweating
          o    Fatigue
          o    Muscle aches, pains (myalgias)
          o    General ill feeling (malaise)

Additional symptoms that may be associated with this disease:

      Nausea and vomiting
      Joint stiffness caused by swelling of the tissue over the joint
      Hair loss at the site of infection

Role of Noni

Noni has been reported to have a broad range of health benefits for various diseases and

Major components – Noni contains all the vitamins like Vitamin A , Vitamin B complex,
vitamin C, Vitamin E. It contains all the trace minerals. A number of major components have
been identified in the Noni plant such as scopoletin, octoanoic acid, potassium, vitamin C,
terpenoids, alkaloids, anthraquinones (such as nordamnacanthal, morindone, rubiadin, and
rubiadin-1-methyl ether, anthraquinone glycoside), sitosterol, carotene, vitamin A, flavone
glycosides, linoleic acid, Alizarin, amino acids, acubin, L-asperuloside, caproic acid, caprylic
acid, ursolic acid, rutin, and a putative proxeronine.
Antibacterial activity Acubin, L-asperuloside, and alizarin in the Noni fruit, as well as some
other anthraquinone compounds in Noni roots, are all proven antibacterial agents. These
compounds have been shown to fight against infectious bacteria strains such as Pseudomonas
aeruginosa, Proteus morgaii, Staphylococcus aureus, Baciillis subtilis, Escherichia coli, Salmonella, and
Shigela. These antibacterial elements within Noni are responsible for the treatment of skin
infections, colds, fevers, and other bacterial-caused health problems

How Noni works
The natural integrity of Noni is only part of the reason for its effectiveness. There are two
additional reasons contribution to Noni's effectiveness for a broad range of conditions:

1. Unique Combinations of Substances
For a fruit, Noni has an impressive combination of ingredients. It has a rich complement of
vitamins and minerals; including A, B vitamins (including the rare B-12), C, E, Iron, calcium,
sodium, potassium, zinc and several trace minerals. It also has 17 of 20 amino acids. Terpenes,
fungicides, adaptogens, glycosides, polysaccharides and other unique ingredients that even in
small amounts can have significant physiological effects can be found in Noni. Studies show
that NONI stimulates the immune system, regulates proper cell function, increases the ability
of cells to absorb and utilize nutrients, inhibits tumor growth, and regenerates damaged cells.
Probably the most unique ingredient is an alkaloid called xeronine. Xeronine has several
important functions including regulating the many proteins in the body, activating inactive
enzymes and improving cellular function. Noni also contains a substance called proxeronine,
which can be stored in the liver according to Dr. Ralph Heinecke. Proxeronine, in turn, can be
used to make xeronine, as needed.
2.Synergy of its Substances
The many known, and even some of the unknown substances, come together in a way that
supports the needs of many of our internal systems, concurrently. As the word synergy
implies, these substances work far better in combination than they do separately. Many of the
ingredients in Noni are found in varying amounts in other foods or herbs. There seems to be
no known food or herb with either the rich list of substances or the high amounts of key
substances all put together in one super food. Noni aids the body's natural healing abilities.
