Abstract:

The aim of the current case study was to evaluate the possible role of noni juice in the improvement of Crohn’s disease symptoms. A 35-year-old male suffered from Crohn’s disease for more than 10 years. Treatment prior to consumption of noni juice involved multiple monthly adalimumab injections, which lowered C-Reactive Protein (CRP) levels to 1.2 mg/L, even though symptoms persisted. Six months after he began drinking noni juice, including one month of consuming a combination of noni juice and olive leaf extract, his symptoms improved and CRP decreased to 0.0 mg/L. These improvements accompanied gradual decreases in adalimumab injection frequency, followed by cessation altogether. Noni juice possesses anti-inflammatory properties that involve multiple mechanisms, including immunomodulation. Relevant experimental data are reviewed and discussed within the context of this case.
