Assessment of the Role of Noni (Morinda citrifolia) Juice for Inducing Osteoblast Differentiation in Isolated Rat Bone Marrow Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells.
Hussain S, Tamizhselvi R, George L, Manickam V.
Noni juice increased the in vitro growth rate of rat bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells. In an in vitro bone growth test, noni juice increased bone density and promoted neo-angiogenesis for bone formation. The results indicate that noni juice stimulates osteoblastogenesis and may be useful for bone diseases, such as osteoporosis.
