Mulberry is a very widespread and important crop for silkworm feed, fruit and timber as well as being an excellent amenity tree. Its leaves and young bark are recognized as excellent animal feed and are used as a by-product. The leaves of mulberry along with other herbals have been used in Chinese medicine and herbal teas and consumed occasionally which undermines the position that the use of these herbs as flavoring agents in herbal tea beverages is GRAS. Hence the Food and Drug Administration agency may not treat the species as GRAS. The leaves are antibacterial, astringent, diaphoretic, hypoglycaemic, odontalgic and ophthalmic. They are taken internally in the treatment of colds, influenza, eye infections and nosebleeds. The stems are antirheumatic, diuretic, hypotensive and pectoral. A tincture of the bark is used to relieve toothache. The Plant is Pharmacognsotically standardized in the present study.
