Just how much potential does noni fruit have? There's an entire foundation dedicated to research and development related to the potential of this crop -- widely regarded as a "miracle" fruit. Noni has been used in India and Southeast Asia for thousands of years to treat and cure various illnesses and diseases suffered by the natives and is mentioned in ancient medicinal texts.
The World Noni Research Foundation was created in 2006 as a continuation of the Indian Noni Research Foundation established in 2001. Many scientists from India and other countries are undertaking research to definitively prove the positive effects noni has on the body. The WNRF provides funding for some of this scientific research.

Noni Search includes special lectures, research findings, and awards given for outstanding research, best farming practices in growing noni, and best oral and poster presentations at the symposium.
A detailed list of research and findings related to noni can be found on the WNRF website, along with details about symposia lectures and an impressive list of scientific publications about noni. It is the firm belief of the WNRF that noni improves health and well-being for those who use it and that this knowledge should be shared with everyone around the world in order for the greatest benefit to be gained.
Products made with noni, such as Biconi's entire hair and body line of products, can help make the scalp, skin and hair healthier and less prone to disease and loss. Noni is commonly thought to help with inflammation, acne, and other skin and scalp problems. For those suffering hair loss, noni is regarded as helpful in creating healthy scalp conditions that will encourage new hair to grow.
Biconi's Radiant Skin Facial Cleanser contains noni, virgin coconut oil, and other plant extracts to reduce skin redness and acne while it moisturizes. Hair Rejuvenation Solid Shampoo and Hair Repair Conditioner contain the same main ingredients and are free from any harmful chemicals normally found in commercial beauty products (parabens, SLS, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oil, alcohol and animal products) for the most natural way to cleanse hair and skin.
