Key Description: Yangmei fruit trees (Myrica rubra) are predominantly found in China where they are cultivated for their fruit and used as ornamental along streets and in parks. They are also referred to as Chinese bayberry, Japanese bayberry, Yumberry, or Chinese strawberry trees.

Yangmei fruit trees are evergreens that produce purplish round fruit that looks somewhat like a berry, hence their alternate name of Chinese strawberry. The fruit is actually not a berry, however, but a drupe-like cherries. That means that there is a single stone seed in the center of the fruit surrounded by juicy pulp.

Yangmei is sweet/tart and high in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. The fruit is often used to make healthy juices as well as being canned, dried, pickled, and even made into alcoholic wine-like beverages.

Health Benefits

Yangmei contains exceptionally high levels of antioxidants – especially Vitamin C – and was historically used to aid in digestion in China (some even say that it neutralizes E. coli bacteria). studies also have found that eating the berry lowers LDL cholesterol and blood pressure levels

The Chinese Bayberry-Yangmei is unusually rich in oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs), the most powerful class of free-radical-scavenging antioxidants. OPCs are believed to support every metabolic system in the body by protecting it against internal and environmental stresses. Twenty times more powerful than Vitamin C and 50 times more potent than Vitamin E, OPCs are said to defend against cardiovascular diseases, degenerative diseases, and premature aging.

OPCs have also been shown to boost the immune system, lower blood pressure and help lower LDL cholesterol levels. OPCs also increase the strength and elasticity of blood vessels while slowing down the collapse of collagen, keeping skin firm, and inhibiting the growth of cancer cells.

This herb is normally used for treating various infections and ailments such as colds, fever, cough, flu, and so on. This herb is also very effective for women in reducing heavy bleeding during menstruation.

In particular, the berries are an excellent source of vitamin C, an antioxidant that may help protect against cellular damage, which can lead to heart disease and cancer
