"Helps no little" does not make sense. What does the Japanese mean, @Pfirsichbaeumchen?
It says “helps greatly”.
"no little" is an archaic phrase, the opposite of "a little" and thus means greatly.
E.g.: "... and was written in great measure to support the hierarchical development, which, they say, showed itself only in the century after St. Paul's death, have no little difficulty in accounting for the presence of such a command as this." or "... performed tests, unnecessarily, to reveal problems that aren't quite problems to then be fixed, unnecessarily, at great expense and no little risk."
Added an "archaic" tag. Thanks for the explanation.
