Herbal powerhouses Red Raspberry Leaf and Nettle are the main stars of this blend. Along with Oatstraw, they are considered nutritive and mineralizing, rich in magnesium, phosphorous, iron, chlorophyll and Vitamins B, K and C, as well as trace minerals.
Red Raspberry Leaf has a long history of supporting the female body and women's uterine health. It is most commonly used to help support women through pregnancy, as the active compound in the leaves - Fragarine - tones and relaxes the muscles in the pelvic region, making uterine contractions more efficient and effective. Raspberry Leaf is also considered nutritive and mineral rich - high in magnesium, phosphorous, iron, chlorophyll and Vitamins B, K and C, as well as trace minerals.
Nettle is commonly used for treating anemia and nutrient deficiencies, is supportive to the endocrine system, effective as an adrenal tonic and known to improve thyroid function. It is also commonly used to restore or protect the healthy functioning of the female reproductive system, helping nourish the body, build blood, and promoting healthy menstruation.
Oatstraw is considered one of the best herbs for the nervous system, particularly during times of acute stress and exhaustion. It may play a role in mellowing the mood, easing anxiety, combating sleeplessness and the effects of daily stress. Oatstraw balances the endocrine and immune system.
