Mulberry leaf is commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine and also has wide applications in natural skincare products. One of the most unique qualities of the Mulberry leaf is the prevention of excessive sugars from entering into the bloodstream. Therefore, drinking Mulberry Leaf Tea is a great choice for those seeking to reduce high blood pressure and maintain a healthy weight.
The herb would be prescribed for treating cold and flu symptoms caused by wind-heat, and for dry coughing due to hot lungs, as well as other problems such as headache, dizziness, blurred vision and skin rashes. Silkworms only eat fresh mulberry leaves (or artificial food).
Mulberries are deciduous and only have leaves in the late spring, summer and early autumn. In California and Florida, trees lose their leaves in October and form green pollen bodies.
