Q.& A. - Haemachromatosis

Q. My question is. I have a female friend aged 51, who has haemachromatosis - too much iron in the blood. Would noni juice help with this. Also what quantity would you recommend? She has said that she can’t have vitamin C, I have told her there is Vitamin C in the juice however she has still asked whether it would help with her condition.

A.The amount of vitamin C (which helps the absorption of iron from food) in one brand of noni juice is only 6 mg per 30 mls – very low. We have had people with this condition take the juice with no ill effect – in fact most feel a lot better on it. She should drink 30 mls/2 x day.
