Natural food for shrimps, crabs, crayfish in a form of sticks.
Mulberry is naturally rich in calcium carbonate, potassium, iron, vitamins and antioxidants.
Mulberry leaves are used mainly in Asia as food for animals.
Mulberry leaves, Beta glucan, minerals
Use it as a supplemental food. Administer 2-3 times a week. Make sure that the amounts given each time are eaten by your animals within an hour. It’s best to give the food as the first meal of the day.
Due to their healing properties the mulberry leaves extracts have been used for centuries. It’s been scientifically proven that mulberry leaves contain compounds such as flavonoids which can fight off bacteria. Also, alkaloids found in leaves and bark have antiviral properties. The leaves also contain a number of valuable compounds, vitamins from B group: niacin, thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2) and pyridoxine (B6), nicotinic acid (PP). Thiamin has anti inflammatory and healing properties. Riboflavin is known for its anti oxidising properties. Another hugely valuable component of mulberry leaves is quercetin which helps to protect cells, cell membranes and DNA from disturbing effects of free radicals. The mulberry leaves also contain valuable tannin. Mulberry leaves possess abilities to chelate iron.
Detailed properties of particular vitamins that mulberry leaves are source of, are provided below:
Thiamin in organisms plays 3 main roles: participates in energy processes (in mitochondria), in chemical reactions leading to nucleic and fatty acids synthesis as well as in neurophysiological processes (plays a role in the synthesis of neurotransmitters). Thiamin is also crucial in metabolic processes.
Plays crucial role in organism functioning. The most important role is in processes of oxidising and reduction and in processes of amino acids (it catalyses them into carbohydrates and fats) and lipids syntheses. Also, riboflavin is a component of active enzymes, such as flavoproteins, hormones and hemoglobin.
Pyridoxine part takes in the processes of amino acids transformation as a coenzyme PAL, in synthesis, and carboxylases. Pyridoxine activates the lyases and isomerase. B6 plays a particularly important role in neurotransmitter, sulfur amino acids metabolism and in niacin synthesis from tryptophan.
Nicotinic acid (PP)
Nicotinic acid participates in synthesis and decomposition of lipid acids, carbohydrates, amino acids as well as it is important for metabolic processes leading to energy release.
Beta glucan is a type of soluble fiber. It possesses healing and nurturing properties. Its properties have been supported by research. Beta glucan enhances immune system.
