Red Raspberry Leaf Tea for Menstrual Cramps

Red Raspberry Leaf Tea

Red Raspberry Leaf is a wonderful herb with many nutrients. It can be prepared as a tea to help with reproductive issues such as painful menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea) and heavy flow.

During warmer weather you can use Red Raspberry Leaf to make a nice iced tea. You can also mix it with juice or a sweetener for a refreshing drink. If you’re not a tea drinker it can also be taken in capsule form.

Nutrients and Benefits

Red Raspberry Leaf is a natural source of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, vitamin c, and b-vitamins. It is very nutritious and supports a healthy female reproductive system. It tones uterine and pelvic muscles, which makes for an easier menstrual cycle. It helps make for a strong and efficient uterus and less painful cramps.

Red Raspberry Leaf is a good herbal tea to have in your supplement cupboard to help with menstrual problems like painful period cramps. It mixes nicely with Nettle Tea, another nutrient rich herb. I tend to make a large batch of herbal tea and keep it in the fridge for convenient access. Preparing the tea this way makes it easier to drink regularly.

Red Raspberry Leaf is a great way to supplement extra nutrients for a healthy reproductive system. It’s best to get our vitamins and minerals from whole food sources as opposed to isolated components whenever possible.

God created these plants and foods with complex and dynamic nutrient balances that work in synergy to heal us and strengthen us. Red Raspberry Leaf is a natural whole food source of nutrients that can help support a healthy menstrual cycle.

Where to Buy

If you grow your own raspberries then you can certainly pick the leaves.

If you don’t have raspberries in your backyard, you can order Red Raspberry Leaf online from iherb, mountian rose herbs, amazon, or the bulk herb store.

You can also find it at your local health food store.
