Mulberry Leaves are indigenous to China, Korea and Japan and have been used in traditional Chinese medicine, particularly in tea, for centuries. The health benefits of mulberry leaves are attributed to their naturally occurring compound, 1-deoxynojirimycin, or DNJ. DNJ is responsible for mulberry’s antidiabetic effects, which have been studied extensively.
Mulberry leaves contain calcium, iron and zinc, as well as the antioxidants ascorbic acid and beta carotene. Mulberry leaves lower blood glucose due to their gallic acid content. Medical studies have shown that mulberry tea significantly curbed glucose spikes within the first two hours of consumption in patients with diabetes.
Research has also proven that triglyceride and LDL cholesterol levels were lowered significantly in patients given mulberry tea on a regular basis.
