within 30 days. Research Data:
Highly regarded in traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine, previous research centered on its considerable benefits in improving blood sugar control and blood lipids. When patients with type 2 diabetes were given either mulberry dried leaves at a dose of 3 g/day or one tablet of the drug glyburide (5 mg/day) for 4 weeks the following was shown:
Mulberry therapy significantly improved diabetic control in Type 2 diabetic patients.
Fasting blood glucose concentrations and A1C levels were significantly lowered with mulberry therapy compared to glyburide treatment.
Mulberry therapy also lowered total and LDL cholesterol while raising HDL cholesterol.
In another clinical trial, subjects were given three tablets of 280 mg mulberry leaf three times a day before meals for a period of 12 weeks. At the end of the study, total cholesterol, triglyceride and LDL were significantly decreased by 4.9%, 14.1%, and 5.6%, respectively, from baseline, whereas HDL was significantly increased by 19.7%.
These results and others indicate that mulberry leaf may be of benefit in people who have the metabolic syndrome characterized by glucose intolerance, as well as alterations in cholesterol and/or triglyceride levels.
Given the benefits of mulberry leaves in improving blood glucose control, researchers in Italy conducted a clinical trial to evaluate the effects on weight loss with an extract of white Japanese mulberry (Morus alba) in 46 overweight people who were enrolled and divided into two groups. The subjects were given an identical balanced diet of 1300 kcal then one group (A) received 2400 mg of mulberry extract while the other group (B) received a placebo. Each group was followed-up every 30 days at 30, 60 and 90 days of treatment for measurements of blood chemistry, body weight and waist circumference in all the subjects and thigh circumference in women only were repeated.
In group A weight loss was about 20 pounds in 3 months, equal to approximately 10 percent of the initial weight, significantly higher than the placebo group B. In addition, the plasma insulin and glucose curves in the group getting the mulberry extract were significantly improved.
In the 20 women treated with only low-calorie diet and with placebo, weight reduction was globally of 6.5 pounds, approximately equal to 3 percent of the initial weight; moreover, the blood glucose curves and the insulin curves showed a slight decline compared to baseline, but not so significantly as was the case for group A.
Waist circumference and thigh circumference (in women) decreased in all participants, obviously more evidently in subjects who lost the most weight.
These results show quite clearly that the use of mulberry extract can dramatically accelerate weight loss in dieting subjects and presumably does so by improving blood sugar control. *The FDA has not approved these statements.
