Red raspberry leaf is most commonly made into a tea. It tastes similar to black tea, but without the caffeine. Red raspberry leaf has high amounts of calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, manganese, iron, and vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, and E. It is anti-inflammatory, astringent, and antioxidant.
Red raspberry leaf is most well known as an herb for womens health. During menstration, it can help allieviate menstrual cramps, excessive bleeding, and balance symptoms of PMS. It is considered a uterine tonic. During pregnancy, red raspberry leaf can help allieviate nausea and morning sickness. It strenghens and tones the uterus, which helps to stimulate labor and cause more focused contractions. This leads to a faster and less painful birth.
