My Mulberries

We grow mulberies in the garden 

because they taste great and they're full of nutrition

They are considered an important food remedy 

in Chinese medicine

Here are ten health benefits

It should be noted that many of these benefits 

have not been scientifically verified 

but are traditional folk remedies 

that have developed in countries

where mulberries have been eaten 

for hundreds of years
Cancer Prevention
Mulberries are a good source of resveratrol,
a potent phytonutrient also found in grapes
that researchers believe can prevent cancer
and aid in the fight of existing cancers

Life Extension
Because of their resveratrol content, 
mulberries may be a tool in one's life extension arsenal,
as resveratrol has shown in several studies 
to extend the life of mice

Blood Tonic
In Chinese medicine, 
mulberries are considered a blood tonic, 
meaning that they cleanse the blood 
and increase its production, strengthening the entire system

Kidney Strengthener
In Chinese medicine, 
mulberries are believed to strengthen the kidneys

Liver Cleanser
In Chinese medicine, 
mulberries are believed to be effective in cleansing the liver

Better Hearing and Vision
In China, 
tea made with mulberry paste is believed 
to strengthen one's hearing and vision

Constipation Cure
In Turkey, 
a treatment for constipation is 
to eat white mulberries on an empty stomach 
with a glass of water

Anemia Treatment
Because they are quite high in iron, 
mulberries are a great food 
to use in the treatment of anemia
Cold and Flu Treatment
In Turkey, 
mulberry molasses is used 
as a treatment for colds and flu
Their effectiveness in this way 
may be due to their high vitamin C content

Premature Gray Hair Remedy

mulberries are considered an effective remedy 
for prematurely gray hair
