Medicinal Potentials and Health Benefits of Black Mulberry

Muhammad Yasir NAEEM [1]


People across the globe still use plants as medicinal source due to its easy access and at low cost availability. Among the genus Morus species Morus nigra (black mulberry) are used in traditional remedies since ancient time. As they are rich source of a great variety of various amounts of nutritive and biologically active components like vitamins, proteins, minerals, anthocyanin, polysaccharides, quercetin etc that are mainly linked with the  possible effective pharmacological actions and also play an important role against various disorders. Moreover, extracts from these fruits also confirmed several biological activities including antimicrobial activity, anti-Alzheimer’s activity, anti-tumor and anticancer activity, because of which different medicinal companies and researchers paying great attention to this plant fruits. Human research on the medicinal activities of this black mulberry fruit is limited. Therefore, more study is needed to explicate the compounds present in it and their possible effect on human health. This review will reveal the broad spectrum of its medicinal importance, antioxidant potential, pharmacological uses and the phyto-chemical compositions.
