The Black Mulberry (Morus nigra) has been mentioned already by most of the early Greek and Roman writers for its benefits. Similarly, in the Chinese region Xinjiang it is named ‘Xiatutu‘, which means medicinal mulberry, and has been used to treat sore throat.
Black Mulberry contains a high content and diverse blend of phytochemicals such as polyphenols and flavonoids. These compounds have pronounced anti-inflammatory effects, partially due to the inhibition of pro-inflammatory cytokines. Interestingly, the total amount of flavonoids is markedly higher in the Black Mulberry compared to other varieties, such as the White or Red Mulberry, and several other plant species. The composition of flavonoids and other phenols identified in a tincture and in a glycerin extract are similar, pointing to a strong anti-inflammatory activity of both extracts.
