The Influence of Morinda citrifolia (Noni) Fruit Juice on Collagen Deposition in the Skin: A Minireview.
This review discusses the results of in vitro, in vivo and human studies which reveal that noni fruit juice ingestion increases collagen production and deposition via increased expression of extracellular matrix protein genes. These studies reveal that there are multiple mechanisms of action through which noni juice promotes collagen synthesis and inhibits collagen degradation. As such, noni juice aids wound healing, increases skin elasticity, and improves the overall appearance of the skin.
