Pharmacological studies show that DNJ in mulberry leaf, by controlling the activity of disaccharide processing enzymes, can inhibit the small intestine absorption of disaccharides (complex sugars such as sucrose) and lower peak blood sugar levels after meals. It is especially useful for those suffering from high blood sugar.
In addition, DNJ can inhibit the glucose modification process of HIV membrane glycoprotein.
Mulberry leaf extract is used to prevent and treat Cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, losing weight, and anti-aging.
