No sooner have I stocked my fridge with products compliant with the latest fad than I hear about something new. It is exhausting, confusing, and not to mention expensive. To be honest, all I really want is to provide my family with a healthy lifestyle, But, truth be told it is often hard to separate fact from fiction.
Take Mulberries, for example, all the moms on the PTA are going gaga for them, it seems not a minute goes by where I don’t hear about Mulberry this or Mulberry that, or “Hey have you tried this recipe for Mulberry pie?” So I decided to investigate the matter for myself. Are they really so healthy? What are mulberries health benefits? Will they help me lose weight? So take a seat and sit tight because I am about to give you the inside scoop.
Mulberries are in fact healthy for you, these sweet fruits have been proven to improve digestion, lower cholesterol, build bone tissue, help with weight loss, boost your immune system, lower blood sugar and prevent cancer. Phew, that was a mouthful ( seriously try saying that ten times fast) and I haven’t even listed all the health benefits. Mulberries are nutritious, and packed with vitamins and nutrients such as iron, vitamin C, phosphorous, vitamin K, riboflavin, potassium, and calcium, not to mention it accounts for a significant amount of dietary fiber as well as large array of organic compounds, including phytonutrients, zeaxanthin, resveratrol, anthocyanins, lutein.
As an added bonus their sweet-tart flavor makes them a great choice for favorite desserts such as sherbert, pies, jams, jellies, tarts and even teas. Adding Mulberries to your diet helps keep you healthy and happy at the same time.
