Moras nigra (Black mulberry) is rich in health-benefitting phytonutrients, polyphenolic antioxidants, flavonoids, anthocyanins, vitamins, and minerals. Its anthocyanin content is responsible for combating cancer, aging, neurological diseases, inflammation, diabetes, and bacterial infections according to scientific studies. Black mulberries contain resveratrol, a polyphenol flavonoid antioxidant which decreases stroke risk by altering molecular mechanisms in blood vessels, reducing their susceptibility to damage through reduced activity of angiotensin (a systemic hormone causing blood vessel constriction that would elevate blood pressure) but potentiating the production of the vasodilatory substance called nitric oxide.
