Mulberries are healthful and make a very good Mulberry Jelly! They are a very good source of vitamin C which helps to protect cells and tissues from free radical damage, they are a good source of potassium, which helps the muscles and nerves to function properly, maintains the bodies' acid balance and helps lower the risk of high blood pressure. Mulberries also contain calcium for strong bones along with good amounts of niacin, which can help lower cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar levels. One cup of mulberries equals around 60 calories.
