Jengkol including leguminous plants. The fruit in the form of pods and flat shape convoluted, dark violet color. Ari thin-skinned fruit seed with shiny brown color. Jengkol can cause odor after being processed and processed by the digestion.Why Jengkol it has a sharp smell? Not far from the reason why petai smell, the smell was actually the cause of the amino acids contained in the seed jengkol. Amino acids were dominated by amino acids containing the element sulfur (S). When degraded or fragmented into smaller components, the amino acids that will produce various flavor components are very smelly, because of the sulfur. One of the gas formed by the element that is a famously H2S gas odor.Odor generated from jengkol was actually quite disturbing, especially for someone who does not partake. If you are eating, despite the smell, at least, has been enjoying the delights jengkol. But for others who did not share, but only got the smell, it would be very annoyed. Especially with the release of urine. If this jengkol eaters pee in the toilet and rinse less than perfect, then the toilet will smell bad and disturbing the peace of others.For the connoisseurs of jengkol, jengkol claimed to have a similar flavor even with the taste of meat. Because after jengkol processed can be very soft and if eaten not leave skid-skid on the teeth. Even at one area in Indonesia jengkol presented in the form of processing jengkol sate.Ada some way so as not to smell too overpowering. Most people soak jengkol before process them into food. Jengkol soaked to reduce the smell and that it may be more lenient to be processed further. Jengkol most often processed into stew jengkol way split into two parts and ground-mashed up more flat. After disemur and then eat, smell jengkol barely smell it again, and it feels good. Jengkolan Jengkol will leave a substance called jengkolat acid (jencolid acid) in the digestive system that is discharged into the kidney called jengkoleun or jengkolan. 

jengkolat that occurs when acid is difficult to dissolve in water finally settles in the kidneys, forming solid crystals could be hard to dispose of urine. If our blood pH neutral, acid jengkolat safe, but if you tend to be acidic (pH less than 7), jengkolat acid forming insoluble crystals.Jengkolat acid content in seeds jengkol varies, depending on the variety and age of seeds jengkol. The numbers between 1-2% of the seed weight jengkol. But it is clear jengkolat acid can cause health problems. Penyebabknya jengkolat acid crystals are formed that will clog the urinary tract. If the crystal is increased, then kelama-lamaan may cause while removing urine. Even if the formation of an infection that is likely to cause further disruptions.Jengkolat acid has a molecular structure that resembles the amino acid cysteine ​​containing elemental sulfur,thereby participating in the formation of the smell. Molecules present in the form of free and soluble in water. Therefore a certain amount jengkolat acid can form crystals.Not everyone can be affected jengkolan, jengkolan could be due to many factors such as how much to consume jengkol and levels of susceptibility. Vulnerable people, eating little jengkol alone can cause jengkolan. What affects one's susceptibility to acid jengkolat unclear, but may be due to genetic and environmental factors.

Noni (Morinda citrifolia) has many benefits of noni fruit and leaves of a food with a complete nutrient content. In addition to a variety of vitamins, protein, and minerals, Noni also contains xeronine, proxeronine, a natural steroid, alizarin, lysine, sodium, capric acid, caprylic acid, kaproat acid, arginine, antraquinone, trace elements, phenylalanine, selenium, magnesium, etc. other.

Among these nutrients are antibacterial agents that can kill Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Protens morganii, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, and Escherichia coli (causes diarrhea), Salmonella montivideo, S. scotmuelleri, S. typhii (causes typhoid), and Shigella dysenteriae, S. flexnerii, S. pradysenteriae, and Staphylococcus aureus.

Scopoletin compound there is lots of noni than is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and allergy, it can also boost the immune system (immunomodulators).


The use of noni for cancer treatment in recent years more and more popular as more research on the benefits of noni for cancer.

University of Hawaii research team led by Annie Hirazumi found that noni juice enhance the immune system works (mainly macrophages and lymphocytes) mice induced with Lewis lung cancer cells, thus able to survive 50 days more. Whereas mice not given noni only able to survive between 9-12 days. Annie is also observed that noni juice is useful for treating sarcoma.

Louisiana State University team, the U.S., led by Conrad A. Hornick, Ph.D. found that noni juice in the levels of 10% can stop the formation of blood vessels (anti-angiogenesis) in breast cancer cells and damage the blood vessels that cancer already exists, so the cancer cells die.

Maria Gabriela was Manuele and his colleagues succeeded in proving that scopoletin can activate lymphocytes to eradicate cancer cells as well as lymphoma.

Not to be outdone by his colleagues, Dr. Rangadhar Satapathy, MD stated that the noni plant has 150 Neutraceutical (medicinal nutrients), five of which are anticancer agents:
  1. Polysaccharides are abundant in Morinda prevent the attachment of cells damaged / mutated into other cells, thus preventing the occurrence of metastases.
  2. damnacanthal, similar anthraquinon, inhibits the growth of malignant cells. Alizarin, another anthraquinon, stopping blood flow to tumor tissue, thus stopping its development.
  3. Epigollocatechin gallate (EGCG). Polyphenolic antioxidant flavonoid that is widely available in this noni prevent mutation of cells and induce apoptosis (suicide) in the abnormal cells.
  4. terpenoids in noni preventing malignant cell division and induce apoptosis. One terpenoidnya, limonene, proven effective against breast cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer, and leukemia. Other terpenoids, beta-carotene, helps stimulate the thymus gland to produce more T lymphocytes, cells that can directly destroy cancer cells. Moderate acid type triterpenoid ursolat also can prevent the growth of abnormal cells (cancer) as well as send existing abnormal cells to commit suicide (apoptosis).
  5. According to the research of Dr. Heinicke, proxeronine very much present in Noni. In the intestine is converted to xeronine proxeronine. Xeronine is also produced in limited quantities this body is required to activate proteins in the cell before it is used throughout the chemical process of the body. Xeronine also improve the structure and function to normalize the body's cells are damaged. Because, basically, every cell contains a protein, then the adequacy of xeronine can fix any kind of abnormal cells. From here obtained an explanation, why xeronine different effects on each person, but generally showed improvement according to each disease.

But behind the impressive benefits of noni so there is one thing that is often an obstacle in taking noni, that smells bad. Aroma is quite pungent, caused by acid and capric acid kaproat there is lots of ripe noni fruit. The means used to reduce this scent is a blend of honey or brown sugar into noni juice, then stored in glass or glass bottles for 2-4 days.

In this fermentation process kaproat acid and capric acid will decompose so that the smell is reduced, unfortunately not yet obtained clear whether this affects the usefulness of fermentation process or not. According to the testimony of its users, noni fruit is not ripe old (not many kaproat acid and capric acid) was less potent than noni fruit is completely ripe.

Noni side effects so far not been found. Only people with kidney problems need to be careful because consuming noni very high potassium levels.


Traditionally all parts of the noni plant can be used as a drug. Roots to treat seizures and tetanus, normalize blood pressure, drug fever, and tonic. Bark is used as a malaria drug, tonic, antiseptic to the wound, or restore skin swelling. The leaves are used as a cure dysentery, intestinal cramps, dizziness, vomiting, and fever. While his urine for a laxative, enema, skin softener, seizures, asthma, respiratory disorders, and inflammation of the lining of the joints.

The days of old leaves, roots, and stems noni is more widely used. But lately its use as a drug is more shifted to the fruit. For example, to treat hypertension ripe noni fruit is taken water, mixed with honey, then drink every morning before breakfast. To cope with jaundice two noni take water, mixed with rock sugar, then drink (done twice a week to recover). To cough and itchy throat, ripe noni fruit is eaten with salt. To relieve a fever of the noni fruit with 2 cm ginger boiled in two cups of water until only half of it. Water is taken morning and evening.
