Antidepressant Effects of Noni Fruit and its Active Principals.
Deng S., West B.J.
Noni fruit extracts inhibited monoamine oxidase (MAO) A and B in vitro. Phytochemicals in the most active extract included kaempferol and quercetin, as well as (+)-3,4,3′,4′-tetrahydro-9,7’α-epoxylignan-7α,9′-lactone, which were found to be potent MAO-A and B inhibitors.
