According to the National Center For Complementary And Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), Noni has shown to have antioxidant, tumor-fighting, and immune -stimulating properties. While lab research is still pretty new, the National Cancer Institute is doing some preliminary research on the shrub for possible breast cancer prevention and treatment.
