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?
