Risks and safety[edit | edit source]
Noni is considered possibly safe when taken used as a food or drink, or applied to the skin as an ointment. Up to 750ml of noni juice per day is generally considered safe, also sellers suggest 30ml as a typical dose, and it is not considered any less safe than other fruit juices.
It is sometimes mixed with other fruit juices, sugar, additives or preservatives, which may have negative effects on health 
Costs and availability[edit | edit source]
Noni is only grown in certain countries but can be imported.
Costs depend on the brand, purity, and the form (juice, supplement, ointment, etc). Pure noni juice prices are around $20 USD for 16oz (473ml) of pure noni juice in the United States, but significantly less if bulk amounts are bought.
