Learn More About Raspberry Leaf
When enjoyed as a tea, raspberry leaf imparts an earthy flavor similar to black tea due to its tannin-rich phytochemical makeup. This high tannin content is what contributes to raspberry leaf’s benefit as an herbal astringent, which helps to tone and tighten tissue. This action is what makes raspberry leaf the perfect herb to ease normal menstrual and gastrointestinal cramping and toning the uterine tissues for labor.* Traditional herbal practitioners have even used it for the mouth or throat and for relief of loose stool for this very reason. In addition to its impressive astringent properties, raspberry leaf is also considered nutritive and antispasmodic.* Categorized in herbal medicine as a tonic herb, raspberry leaf tea can be enjoyed as an everyday supplement.
Whether you’re enjoying the delectable red berries or the full-bodied flavor of the leaves, incorporating this powerful herb into your routine can be wonderfully supportive.
Although there are many species of raspberry plants, Rubus idaeus is the most recognized for its medicinal properties within herbalism. It’s said the Greek Olympian Gods could be found collecting the ripe berries around Mount Ida, hence the name Rubus idaeus which means “bramble of Ida” in Latin.
European and Native American women have used these leaves for thousands of years to prepare the womb for childbirth, and some farmers even use it for their lady goats who are expecting. And raspberry leaves aren’t just for women, its been traditionally used as a spasmolytic in cases of diarrhea.
