Health Benefits of White Mulberry Tea

Ancient man including the Greeks, the Chinese and the Celts all have left a record of using Mulberry in medicinal applications. In fact they used virtually the entire plant. The berry's are an excellent dietary supplement high in protein and are also processed into a syrup used for stomach disorders. The roots and sap were used by the Celts for a variety of medicinal purposes. Of course the leaves have been used for centuries as well.

The most common use of white mulberry leaf tea today is as a supplement to a regimen to manage diabetes.  Another common recommendation from practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine is as an aid in slowing arteriosclerosis.


White Mulberry Tea and Diabetes

Scientists in Japan have found a naturally occurring sugar in the leaves of the white mulberry plant called 1-deoxynojirimycin  to inhibit the metabolization of complex sugars into simple sugars. These simple sugars are a primary causative of hypoglycemia. Since the metabolization is slowed, a greater percentage of the complex sugars are passed safely from the body as waste rather than entering the bloodstream.




White Mulberry Tea and Arteriosclerosis

Biologically active compounds in the leaves of white mulberry inhibit the oxidation of LDL-cholesterol (the bad cholesterol). The reduced LDL in turn helps mitigate the build-up of arterial plaque. Scientists note that this should help prevent stroke and LDL related heart diseases.
