Do not miss out on this awesome little berry this summer! I can’t tell you how excited I get when I find some free organic fruit that I can pick. Check to see if there are Mulberry trees in your area because they are in full bloom!! 🙂 I went on a walk and saw two trees at the park and then found out my dad has a huge tree right in his backyard! I went to town. I even put some in the freezer to have for smoothies.
Mulberries provide a good amount of iron and vitamin C that may help with circulation and immune function. They also contain reservatrol, which is a flavonoid antioxidant that can positively affect blood pressure. You can read more about the benefits of mulberries here. Although it’s rare, some people may be allergic to the berries so it’s always smart to consume a few and see how your body reacts.
