a) Boost Immune System
Mulberries contain alkaloids that activate macrophage white blood cells that stimulate the immune system and are anti-inflammatory in nature. Dried mulberries also contain good levels of flavonoids and vitamin C which make them natural immune boosters and good for preventing common ailments such as flu and cold.
b) A Good Source of Antioxidants for Health, Cancer Prevention, Anti-Aging Benefits
Mulberries are an excellent source of various antioxidants. Antioxidants help combat free radical damage that is linked to premature aging and chronic illnesses. The main antioxidants in mulberries are Anthocyanins and Resveratrol.
Resveratrol (known as the longevity antioxidant) is thought to promote heart health (by protecting the inner lining of your arteries from oxidative free radical damage- keeps your blood flowing), protect against stroke risk, slow aging, help combat high blood pressure or hypertension and prevent cancer.
Some of the other antioxidants found in mulberries include: Vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin, beta-carotene.
c) Improve Blood Circulation & Protect Against Anemia
The dried White Mulberries have an unusually high level of iron for a fruit and are widely used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as a blood tonic as they cleanse and enrich the blood to improve its circulation and strengthen the entire system. These berries help boost the body’s production of red blood cells, and are a great food to consume for those suffering from anemia.
d) Improve Digestive Health & Metabolism
The high amount of dietary fiber found in dried white mulberries can help improve digestion. One (1) serving (about 28g or a handful) of dried mulberries can provide almost 12-15% of your daily fiber needs.
Dried White Mulberries are also rich in B-complex group of vitamins and vitamin K. They contain very good amounts of vitamin B-6, niacin, riboflavin and folic acid – these B vitamins aid in the metabolism of carbohydrates, protein, and fats in the body.
e) May Protect Liver (from Fatty Liver Disease)
Some studies have shown that Resveratrol (which is present in good amounts in Dried Mulberries) may improve the condition of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
