Key Doctors and Scientists Endorse Only TAHITIAN NONI Juice

Doctors Insist That Other Companies Using Their Names and Research Are Doing So Under False and Misleading Pretenses


Provo, UT–(HISPANIC PR WIRE – BUSINESS WIRE)–August 31, 2004–Tahitian Noni International, developer and exclusive provider of the internationally acclaimed TAHITIAN NONI(R) Juice, recently announced that key doctors and scientists worldwide continue to endorse only TAHITIAN NONI Juice. Dr. Ralph Heinicke, Dr. Anne Hirazumi-Kim, Dr. Neil Solomon, and Dr. Mian-Ying Wang are all recognized as experts in the field of noni research. As such, other companies have begun using their names and research in an inappropriate and misleading manner in an effort to persuade the public to purchase products other than TAHITIAN NONI Juice.

Dr. Ralph Heinicke has dedicated a large portion of his life to the study of the Morinda citrifolia, or “noni.” He is recognized as one of the world’s leading experts on noni and has been called by many the “Father of Noni.” Dr. Heinicke recently stated, “TAHITIAN NONI(R) products are the only noni products that I recommend and endorse. Tahitian Noni International has superior products because of their excellent quality control. They have a commitment to support ongoing research, and have executives that have social and environmental concerns. It’s great to be a part of a cause that is not only taking such a wonderful product to the world, but is sponsoring such an incredible amount of validating research as well.”

Dr. Anne Hirazumi-Kim has been studying noni for over a decade. Since she lives and works in Hawaii, many Hawaiian companies have used her research and implied her endorsement of their noni products. She has stated, “I find it appalling when other companies manipulate and misrepresent my research to try to persuade the public to purchase their product. This is inappropriate and very misleading. The only product I endorse is TAHITIAN NONI Juice made by Tahitian Noni International.”

Dr. Neil Solomon, noted noni researcher and author, has stated, “I have done research on over 20,000 people drinking TAHITIAN NONI Juice. The results of that research cannot be used by other companies to support their misleading product claims. When they use my name or quote my research, they must state that the research was done on TAHITIAN NONI Juice, and not on their product. It is wrong to infer that their product is the same. I do not want my name being used by other companies if the research was not done on their products.”

Finally, Dr. Mian-Ying Wang, researcher at the University of Chicago, has stated, “TAHITIAN NONI Juice is an essential contribution to human health and preventative therapy. It is indeed the most incredible liquid dietary supplement I have ever seen. I strongly recommend TAHITIAN NONI Juice to you. There is no other noni product that I recommend.”

Companies must stop using the names of these doctors and scientists to make false and inappropriate claims about their products.
