Other Benefits of Mulberry Based on Animal Studies
Animal studies show the potential benefits of mulberry, in particular, white mulberry leaf extracts, to treat depression. They have been shown to have anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) and muscle relaxant qualities when fed to mice.
Another study also showed that treating mice with cyanidin-3-O-β-D-glucopyranoside from mulberry fruit extracts improves erectile function.
Despite the many benefits of mulberry, there have been some reports of the fruit being a potential food allergen. Some patients have reported urticaria, tightening of the chest, difficulty in breathing, and abdominal cramps after eating mulberry fruit.
Allergies to mulberry are very rare. However, if you are sensitive to birch pollen, there is a chance that you may experience allergic reactions to mulberry.
