Red Raspberry Leaf is also in our "TOP TEN" herbs that we use all the time. We especially use it as part of our daily tea because of the high amount of vitamins and nutrients it possesses.
Red raspberry fruit and leaf has been used as medicine for centuries. The therapeutic use of raspberry leaf was first described in 1597 in a book called “The Herbal,” or “A General History of Plants. (www.webmed.com ) In the middle ages it was well known as a female tonic. The leaves are still used in herbal teas or tisane to sooth the digestive system and to help soothe menstrual cramps.
