6 Health Benefits of Mulberries
Mulberries are delicious and nutritious, people all over the world enjoy it. Mulberries are a product of the Morus alba tree. Its leaves, which also contain nutrients and are even used as food for silkworms, are thin, glossy and light green; the fruit, like grapes, is red or white and grows in bunches called “drupes.”
1. Source of Antioxidants
Antioxidants help lessen the damage caused by free radicals and the entire mulberry plant- leaves, stems, and fruit, contains antioxidants. One antioxidant in particular, resveratrol, has gotten much attention. Research published by the University of Texas Health Science Center credits resveratrol for positive effects on age and longevity.
2. Immune System Support
Mulberries contain alkaloids that activate macro-phages. Macro-phages are white blood cells that stimulate the immune system, putting it on high active alert against health threats.
3. Supports Healthy Blood Sugar
More formal research is appropriate, but mulberry is thought to contain compounds that support balanced blood sugar levels. Traditional medicine in China, Trinidad and Tobago have all used mulberry leaves to promote balanced blood sugar levels.
4. Healthy Food!
Dried mulberries are a great source of protein, vitamin C and K, fiber, and iron. Best of all, they’re available in health food stores everywhere! Enjoy them as a great snack all by themselves or add them to your favorite trail mix. If you live in a warm climate and are lucky enough to have mulberry trees nearby, you can enjoy the fruit fresh off the tree. Not as tasty as the fruit, even the leaves contain protein, fiber, and nutrients!
5. Resists Redness
Practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine have used mulberry as a remedy for swelling and redness. A recent Romanian study discovered that a curcumin and mulberry leaf combination may be a new lead into natural remedies for this sort of irritation.
6. Brain Protection?
Do mulberries offer anything to the brain? Researchers at Khon Kaen University in Thailand set out to answer that question by evaluating the effect of mulberry on male rats with memory impairment and brain damage. Although further investigation is required before mulberries can be declared a cognitive enhancer and neuroprotectant, rats that consumed mulberries had better memories and less oxidation stress.

Figs are one of the oldest fruits known to mankind. They were used by the Sumerians in 2500 BC, mentioned in the Bible in the Garden of Eden, considered sacred to the Romans, and often used in trade between Europe and the Middle East during the Middle Ages. Figs originated in Western Asia and made their way to America with the Spanish explorers in the 1500s. It seems everyone is desirous of figs for good reason. The tree is easy to grow, produces abundantly for years, and the fruits are sweet and tasty eaten fresh or dried. Figs were even used as a sugar substitute during the Middle Ages. If your only experience of figs has been packaged, dried figs or Fig Newton cookies, you're missing something special.
Fresh figs are soft, sweet and creamy. They can be used in baking, to sweeten meats or in desserts. One of my favorite recipes is fresh figs topped with warm mascarpone cheese and drizzled with honey. It's to die for! The fruits are high in iron, fiber, potassium and calcium. They can also be used as a laxative, so don't go overboard when munching on these fruits. The trees can be grown outdoors in warm climates or in containers in colder climates. Either way a few trees will produce more figs than you'll ever be able to eat. Nice 12" plants.
