White Mulberry Mysteries – Your Top 3 Questions Answered
(Text Version)

Today  I thought I’d just take a quick moment to answer the 3 most frequently asked questions about white mulberry tea. Does it have to be white mulberry leaves or will the leaves from any mulberry tree have the same effect? We don’t really know for sure. We believe that all mulberry trees have DNJ, the most commonly cited active ingredient in White Mulberry Leaf. But, we do not know if the other species are as potent or effective. White mulberry trees (Latin: Morus alba)...

Which Herb Should I Try for...

One of the questions I am asked often is something like, “Which of your wellness teas should I drink for condition X ?” where X is whatever is highest of the person’s personal health concerns.  I try my best to answer (always bearing in mind that I am not a doctor and there are a lot of you asking) but the answer is not always clear-cut because most wellness herbs have more than one benefit and synergistic effects. This is one of the reasons I’m not...

Ground-breaking research from high school student (and Immortalitea)

It’s no secret I’m a science geek. Over the years Immortalitea has participated in several formal research projects with organizations like the University of Maryland’s Food Sciences Center and The University of Louisiana’s School of Kinesiology. This week I’m proud to share with you our latest research results, regarding the antibacterial properties of White Mulberry Leaf.

Dried White Mulberry Granola

I think our organic dried white mulberries are pretty awesome just as they are.  (You can read more about why I think they make such a great snack and grab a 30% discount here.)   But recently, I found this Mulberry Granola Recipe on the website “Elana’s Pantry” and I can’t seem to get enough of it.

Exercise Your Diabetes Away

This week, as I tried to decide how to wrap up my current series of blog post on diabetes and blood sugar, I ran onto a new research paper in the International Journal of Endocrinology on the benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine for Diabetes and in it they summarized recent research specifically about tai chi and diabetes. I couldn’t miss this opportunity to talk about one of my favorite topics. My first job after my academic studies was with AT&T Bell Laboratories. At the time...

Top 10 Foods for Diabetics

Top 10 Foods For Diabetics Earlier this week I blogged about the benefits of green tea for Type 2 Diabetes. The research that prompted me to make this post was a recent article in The Journal of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants on three traditional natural remedies for diabetes, cinnamon, green tea and bitter melon. I focused mostly on green tea and added in my two cents worth on white mulberry tea and green tea as a synergistic approach. This blog prompted a bunch of emails,...

Are White Mulberry Leaves Safe to Eat ?

I’ve been in the herbal tea business for 11 years now. I’ve researched the herbs we sell extensively, interviewed some of the top experts, walked miles in farm furrows in countries all over the world, written hundreds of articles and consumed a LOT of tea. I think, in my admittedly tiny niche, I’m a legitimate expert. But when it comes to people’s health, my policy is, check and double-check. After my last blog post I received an email from a reader that concerned me. This...

Mulberry Matcha French Toast! Seriously??? - Yep, seriously good!

I thought I’d mix things up this week by sharing a recipe with you. Last Saturday was my wedding anniversary and I decided to surprise my blushing bride with breakfast in bed. OK, it wasn’t much of a surprise. First, I cook a lot and, second, I’m a noisy cook. But, hopefully I got points for effort. Usually, on special occasions I’m a “calories-smalories, let’s indulge ourselves” kind of guy. But my sweetie gave birth recently and she’s trying to eat more responsibly. I decided...
