Learn more about the benefits of Raspberry Leaf, a time-honored herb used by herbalists to support the uterus.

 

 

 

 

As a mineral-rich remedy, Raspberry Leaf is often considered one of the most recognized herbs for supporting pregnancy; as well as for supporting the uterus and promoting uterine health. With its mild, earthy flavor, this herb is commonly used to make Raspberry Leaf tea.

 

Raspberry Leaf is a source of mild astringent compounds, which is taste produced by chemical compounds called tannins. Given its astringent nature, Western Herbalists and midwives have used Raspberry Leaf tea to aid in easing discomfort during menstruation, pregnancy, and labor.

 

In Ayurveda, Raspberry Leaf – with its sweet, cold and astringent properties – is used as an effective anti-pitta (cooling) herb, and has a particular affinity for the female reproductive tract. Given this affinity, we’ve used Raspberry Leaf in many of our Woman’s teas, including our Woman’s Raspberry Leaf tea, Woman’s Mother To Be® tea and Woman’s Moon Cycle® tea.
