With Mulberry Leaf Extract 3% 1-DNJ as its core ingredient, GreenSilk Formula #1 combines high-grade synergistic herbs aimed at providing a natural remedy for maintaining and supporting healthy blood sugar levels. Mulberry Leaf Extract is formulated with a special delayed-release capsule that protects against stomach acids providing higher absorption of nutrients.

One of the most amazing characteristics that can only be found in the mulberry leaf is an ingredient known as moranoline (1-Deoxynojirimycin / 1-DNJ). This incredible compound inhibits an enzyme in the intestinal tract involved in the digestion of carbohydrates. 

Moranoline or 1-DNJ holds back complex carbohydrates, starches, maltose, and sucrose from breaking down into glucose.  In essence, it actually prevents sugar from entering the bloodstream. This is what makes it incredibly powerful for blood sugar. 

In addition to being rich in important nutrients, research indicates mulberry leaf helps to reduce inflammation.
