Everyone is familiar with blackberries. Many of them know of their benefits, but few people are aware that blackberry leaves can be powerful for our health as well. Blackberry leaves have been used for a long time, especially in Germany. Its most famous use has been in teas. It has known benefits that can help people who suffer from autoimmune disorders like CIDP (Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy).
Blackberry leaves are known to help treat diarrhea and ulcers, especially ulcers in the mouth and the stomach. However, the leaves also have antioxidant properties which protect from the negative effects of free radicals in the body. We saw earlier how free radicals contribute to the inflammation that is associated with CIDP neuropathy. Blackberry leaves also seem to have a higher antioxidant rate than the berries themselves. As such, they are excellent for boosting your immune system function.
Blackberry leaves also contain a high amount of flavonoids. Flavonoids are particularly important as they not only support proper immune function, but also help with inflammation that is associated with autoimmune disorders. Remember that CIDP is an autoimmune inflammatory problem of the nerves.
