Mulberry Goodness

Mulberry fruits turn from green to red then dark purple when ripe. They're rather too small to eat. Mulberry leaves though are not only good for silkworm food but are also very good tea when dried. I use mulberry tea when I have indigestion, food poisoning, gastritis, and other stomach troubles.  It's the only medicine I took when I was pregnant and breastfeeding. It also did improve my sleeping as I used to have insomnia. Researchers also found out that it's a very good antioxidant. It can lower bad cholesterol and blood sugar so it's good for diabetes, too. It can also strengthen the teeth. Thanks to mulberry tea! 
For those who want to know how the tea looks like, here it is. But please read my previous post for the instructions how it is prepared. Why turn to drugs if there's natural medicine?

I see mulberry tea at my supermarkets but have never seen fresh ripe mulberries before. You reminded me about the benefits of this great berry. Unfortunately, I have never seen fresh mulberries in stores so I guess the tea is an option to take.

Thank you so much for the information about Mulberries. Having kids it's always good to know of natural things for healing. Would you explain how you make the tea, how many leaves and how long to you steep the tea in hot water? Have a wonderful RT! :))

I've never try using the fresh leaves, just buy the pre packet mulberry tea from the store. Wonder if they have the same effect?
