The leaf of white mulberry or Marus alba is an oriental Chinese herbal medicine used by Koreans as their tea.
Some of its health benefits are:
- Reduces soreness by improving your immune system and increasing the production of hormones called cytokines.
- It contains flavonoids, which generate antioxidant agents to fight free radicals and prevent damages to your cells, keeping your body healthy and young.
- Regulates blood sugar and cholesterol levels by providing a potent alpha-glucosidase inhibitor called 1-deoxynojirimycin.
- Improves your mood by stabilizing and regulating your amino acid called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).
