Raspberry leaf herb is a rich source of vitamin C, calcium, iron, magnesium, bioflavonoids and antioxidants. Raspberry leaf is excellent for sore throats, canker sores, cold sores, anemia, colds and fevers, diarrhea, leg cramps, menopausal symptoms, adrenal fatigue, stomach ulcers, and as a mouthwash for gingivitis.
Topically, It is wonderful for helping to heal skin conditions such as burns, cuts, rashes, eczema, and psoriasis. Raspberry leaf has been used for centuries as a “reproductive tonic” due to its ability to support both women’s and men’s reproductive health. It has been found to provide relief for women experiencing PMS, cramps, and heavy menstrual bleeding due to a compound it contains called ferulic acid.
Midwives often recommend pregnant women drink raspberry leaf tea just before and during labor to help induce and regulate timing of contractions and to help speed up delivery. It has also been used to help ease symptoms of morning sickness and nausea. Following birth, raspberry leaf tea is often recommended to help stimulate milk flow for breast feeding.
Raspberry leaf tea has a pleasing taste, much like black tea, but without the caffeine. To make the tea, pour 1 cup of boiling water over 1-2 teaspoons of dried or fresh herb and let steep for 10 minutes or more. Sweeten with raw honey if desired. Raspberry leaf can be found online or at your local health food store in capsule, tincture, extract, and tea form.
