Red Raspberry Leaf - Rubus idaeus
Red Raspberry can help to both tone and relax muscles in the pelvic region, including the uterus, which can help the uterus to contract more effectively and lead to an easier birth.
Along with supporting women throughout pregnancy, Red Raspberry Leaf benefits also include help and relief for PMS symptoms. The leaf contains a compound called fragarine, which helps to tone muscles in the pelvic area and can help relieve menstrual cramps.
In addition to calcium, Raspberry Leaf also provides the body with iron. Those with heavier menstrual flows will sometimes experience anemia related to their flow, and the iron in Red Raspberry can help to combat this.
