Mulberries are sweet that are available during a short period twice a year – from March to May and then again from October to November. They hang from a genus of deciduous trees that grow in a variety of temperate areas around the world. Though they are known to have originated in China, they have spread throughout the world and have been highly praised for their unique flavor. The variety that grows commonly in Pakistan is called Gilgit and you will mostly find them in the warm, balmy climate of the southern region of the country. In fact, most varieties found in different parts of the world are considered to be “native” from those areas, as they are so widespread. The berries grow very fast when it comes to their appearance while they are young, but their growth slows down as their color changes from white to pink or red, and eventually settling for a dark purple or even black. The sweet or tart flavor of most varieties makes these berries ideal for sherbets, jams, squashes, jellies, fruit tarts, and pies. They also carry a truly impressive and unusual composition of nutrients for a berry. Mulberries are rich in important nutrients like iron, vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium, and calcium.

Here are eight amazing health benefits of mulberries that you shouldn’t miss while the short season lasts.

1. Digestive health

Like various other fruits and vegetables, mulberries too contain lots of dietary fiber. Dietary fiber helps in improving your digestion by bulking up stool and speeding up the movement of food through the digestive tract. This reduces the occurrences of constipation, bloating, and cramping.

2. Improves blood circulation

The high iron content in mulberries can significantly boost the production of red blood cells which helps the body to increase its distribution of oxygen to important tissues and organ systems, hence, helping to boost metabolism and optimize the functionality of those systems.

3. Boosts your immune system

Vitamin C is a great weapon against any infection and foreign pathogens as it makes you stronger from within. Since it is not stored or produced in the body, you need to get it from your diet.  A single serving of mulberries is almost the entire requirement of vitamin C for the day.

4. Improves your vision
