Eat This Berry To Prevent Wrinkles, Fight Fatigue And Strengthen Your Immune System
By Drew Canole
If you were to sit a young child down at a table full of different foods, which ones would they grab first? Most likely they would pick the high energy, colorful foods like fruits and berries. In his book The Detox Miracle Sourcebook, Robert Morse, N.D. says “The ancient Greeks… ate nothing but fruit, and each generation reached the age of 200 years.”
Berries have incredible antioxidant and cell-protecting nutrients called phytochemicals. These neutralize free radicals in the body that may otherwise cause disease. They help protect us against EMFs and radiation. The flavonoids in berries helps us with mental clarity, memory and learning.
Today I want to talk about a berry that you may not be familiar with… the mulberry!

Mulberries go back to the Roman emperor Charlemagne, who grew them on his imperial farm. They have also been grown in Turkey for thousands of years and were used by Chinese healers as a blood tonic.
Mulberries are a great anti-aging food! They are know to help prevent wrinkles and cell degeneration, all in this tasty berry. 🙂 They’re also great for cardiovascular health, combating obesity and strengthening the immune system.
In Chinese medicine they are used to treat fatigue, cancer and anemia. They are also being recognized for their protein content. One cup of mulberries contains about 2 grams of protein.
According to ayurvedic medicine, white mulberries may also be a superfood for those with diabetes.
Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties: Mulberries have a unique antioxidant called Resveratrol, which is especially good at stopping cancerous cells from forming. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory. The anthocyanins in the berry, which gives them their color, are also powerful antioxidants.
10 Ways To Eat Mulberries
Mulberries often come to America from overseas and are dried to preserve their nutrients.
1. Eat them raw. They are not as sweet as other berries, but still make a tasty snack.
2. Add them to smoothies. For a particularly tasty recipe, use ½ cup crushed mulberries, 1 Tbsp raw honey, 1 Tbsp coconut oil, ½ tsp vanilla and a spoonful of chia seeds, soaked (optional).
3. Juice them. You can either use a traditional juicer or, if you don’t have one, crush the mulberries and simmer on the stove with ¼ cup water until soft and then strain through fabric, like cheesecloth.
4. Add them to salads (you can even use the mulberry plant leaves in salad).
5. Add dried mulberries to granola recipes like this one.
6. Throw them in organic greek yogurt with other berries for a tasty parfait.
7. Add them to pancakes.
8. Homemade mulberry ice cream. 4 cups almond/cashew milk, 1 cup organic coconut palm sugar, 5 organic egg yolks and 2 tsps vanilla. Simply mix all the ingredients and allow to chill in the fridge for 60 minutes. Then pour into ice cream maker and operate as normal, adding ½ cup mulberries in the last five minutes.
9. Substitute for blueberries in muffins, pie, or cobbler.
10. Mix with raspberries to make tasty homemade jam or jelly.
