About DNJ

DNJ, or 1-Deoxynojirimycin, is a naturally occurring compound in mulberry leaves. It's a glucosidase inhibitor (an enzyme blocker), which prevents certain enzymes in the intestines from converting carbs from the food you eat into sugars. As a result, sugar absorption into the bloodstream is slowed down, moderating the increase in blood sugar levels after eating.

This property of DNJ has garnered interest for its potential benefits in managing blood sugar levels, especially for those with type 2 diabetes or those looking to manage their weight.

In simpler terms, DNJ in mulberry leaves can help reduce the rise in blood sugar after a carbohydrate-rich meal.
