Provo, UT–(HISPANIC PR WIRE – BUSINESS WIRE)–December 13, 2005–Tahitian Noni International, maker of TAHITIAN NONI(R) Juice, is pleased to announce that its product has passed ConsumerLab.com’s Athletic Banned Substances Screening Program. The screening program determined that TAHITIAN NONI(R) Juice had no detectable amounts of more than 170 substances (including metabolites) based on the 2005 World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited list. ConsumerLab.com’s program was the first comprehensive program to focus on dietary supplements and athletic banned substances. Tahitian Noni International is a global, research-driven products company that was the first to introduce the health benefits of the noni plant to the world outside Tahiti.
TAHITIAN NONI(R) Juice is the only noni-based product to go through ConsumerLab.com’s rigorous program. The juice was tested in an independent laboratory blinded to the product’s identity. The screening program includes testing for stimulants, narcotics, anabolic agents, diuretics, masking agents and beta-blockers – substances which are banned by the Olympics(TM) and some by other sports associations such as the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). The TAHITIAN NONI(R) Juice test results and listing can be found on ConsumerLab.com’s Web site at http://www.consumerlab.com/bannedsub.asp.
“This confirms our efforts to produce the most innovative, highest-quality, noni-based products throughout the world,” said Kelly Olsen, president, Tahitian Noni International. “We harvest noni exclusively from French Polynesia and utilize several control processes during the manufacturing and distribution of our products to ensure they meet our customers’ high standards.”
TAHITIAN NONI(R) Juice is made from noni, a green, tropical fruit, about the size of a potato. TAHITIAN NONI(R) Juice supports the immune system, delivers superior antioxidants, and increases energy and physical performance levels. The juice is 100 percent natural and made using a special formula of noni fruit puree, along with grape and blueberry juices. The grape and blueberry ingredients enhance the flavor of the juice, and research shows that they have a synergistic effect on the entire product, making it more effective.
