Six weeks of noni juice ingestion lowered serum triacylglycerol, cholesterol, atherogenic index, malondialdehyde levels, and hepatic lipids in hamsters fed a high-fat/cholesterol diet. Noni juice also increased serum trolox equivalent antioxidant capacity and glutathione, as well as upregulated hepatic peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-alpha and uncoupling protein 2 gene expressions.  These results reveal the cardioprotective properties of noni juice.
