HNFE-518P White mulberry is native to China, and it has been used to help treat diabetes. Among many anti-diabetic components, deoxynojirimycin (DNJ) acts as an alpha-glucosidase inhibitor that inhibits glucose digestion in the small intestine and lower glucose levels in the bloodstream. Research studies have demonstrated that the phytochemicals in white mulberry make the plant a viable alpha-glucosidase inhibitor. These findings suggest that white mulberry leaves or shoots, white mulberry extract, and DNJ-enriched products may help prevent or treat impaired glycemic control.
