Contains Minerals and Antioxidants
According to an article published in the "International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition" in 2006, mulberry leaves contain calcium, iron and zinc. Mulberry also contains the antioxidants ascorbic acid and beta carotene. Antioxidants inhibit cellular damage caused by free radicals, which get created during food digestion and smoke and radiation exposure. Regularly consuming foods and drinks rich in beta carotene may reduce your risk of cancer, according to PubMed Health.
Lowers Blood Glucose Levels
Type 2 diabetes is characterized by increased blood glucose levels. According to a study published in "The American Journal of Chinese Medicine" in 2012, mulberry lowers blood glucose due to its gallic acid content. In a study published in "Diabetes Care" in 2007, this effect was shown in Type 2 diabetes patients. In the study, everyone in a diabetes group and a healthy control group received a sucrose drink, but some also got mulberry extract, while the others got a placebo. Blood glucose was tested beforehand and two, three and four hours after sucrose consumption. The results showed that taking mulberry significantly curbed glucose spikes in the first two hours after consumption. The scientists concluded that mulberry could be useful both in the treatment of diabetes and in its prevention.
