Used in Traditional Chinese Medicine as an important food remedy, mulberries are rich in nutrients such as Vitamins C and K, iron, calcium, and fibre. They contain a high level of antioxidants including the natural antibiotic antioxidant resveratrol.
Mulberries are especially good for:
- Eyes and hair
- Liver cleansing
- Kidney strengthening
- Blood cleansing
- Cold and flu treatment (mulberry molasses are used in Turkey)
These can be eaten alone (they are naturally sweet), or added to cereal, smoothies or cooking desserts.
