Red Raspberry Leaf has a long history of supporting the female body and women's uterine health. Red Raspberry is a versatile, effective and mineral-rich herb most commonly recommended by Midwives and Herbalists for pregnancy and postpartum, but is also frequently used for hormonal, uterine and nutritive support for women of all ages and stages of life, from menstruation to menopause.
The active compound in the leaves - Fragarine - tones and relaxes the muscles in the pelvic region, making uterine contractions more efficient and effective during labour, but also helping to relieve cramps during menstruation. 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.
Contrary to popular belief, it does NOT induce labour, and can be sipped daily during pregnancy, starting in the second or third trimester.
