Health Benefits
1. Diabetes mellitus 
In the study to a literature review aimed to analyse various studies related to the use of phytotherapy in diabetes mellitus in Turkey in order to provide additional information for healthcare professionals, indicated that among the herbs most-commonly used along with modern medical therapies and also in folkloric medicine, we searched for bitter melon, cinnamon, fenugreek, olive leaf, black seed and white mulberry. Studies conducted in this field have produced conflicting results and, the necessity to conduct randomized, placebo-controlled clinical human studies to develop new drugs from herbs, as in the case of metformin, still remains important. Besides, further studies are required to address the issues of standardization and quality control of existing preparations. More importantly, healthcare professionals caring for diabetic patients need to be aware of phytotherapy to incorporate phytomedicine into their practices and should undertake more responsibility in relation to these kind of therapies that are commonly-used throughout the world(1).

2. Oxidative stress
In the study to investigate the effects of ML in metabolic disorders and examined the mechanisms by which ML ameliorates metabolic disorders in db/db mice, found that ML ameliorates adipocytokine dysregulation at least in part through inhibiting oxidative stress in WAT of db/db mice, and that ML may be a basis for a pharmaceutical for the treatment of the metabolic syndrome as well as reducing adverse effects of pioglitazone(2).

3.  Obesity or diabetes
In the study to investigate the ability of an extract of black, green, and mulberry tea leaves to induce malabsorption of carbohydrate and triacylglycerol in healthy volunteers, found that with the carbohydrate-containing meal, the tea extract resulted in a highly significant increase in breath-hydrogen concentrations, which indicated appreciable carbohydrate malabsorption. A comparison of hydrogen excretion after the carbohydrate-containing meal with that after the nonabsorbable disaccharide lactulose suggested that the tea extract induced malabsorption of 25% of the carbohydrate. The tea extract did not cause triacylglycerol malabsorption or any significant increase in symptoms and concluded that this study provides the basis for additional experiments to determine whether the tea extract has clinical utility for the treatment of obesity or diabetes(3).
