I have used Red Raspberry Leaf for many years to make tea for better female health.
Recenatly, I found this wonderful herb does more than I ever dreamed. The best way to get around to learning more about something is to write about it. So get all cozied up with your favorite herbal drink (just this once instead of coffee, LOL) and let’s explore the benefits of red raspberry leaf.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.~Psalm 139:14~
The Surprising Benefits of Red Raspberry
I couldn’t believe the benefits of red raspberry that I overlooked. I knew it was great for women during their child bearing years but had not much idea of the whys and wherefores.
Red Raspberry is the herb of choice for women’s health and pregnancy. I made tea from the leaves during those years but did not realize the powerhouse of health it encourages to continue to build after menopause.
Red raspberry is chock full of essential minerals and vitamins such as: magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, vitamin C,E,A and B complex. It also contains easily assimilated calcium and iron, two things women require.
The market is flooded with Red Raspberry products but the only thing is that most of it is sprayed, irradiated, old, dried out, and of poor quality.
I recently bought Red Raspberry from The Bulk Herb Store and I am going to expand my knowledge of it as I drink some of its tea. Like some? Visit the Bulk Herb Store through my blog as your purchase will help support this site.
Do You Drink tea??
I don’t like coffee so I drank tea for years. When I was pregnant for the first time I gave up drinking caffeinated ice-tea and drank herbal teas for years instead. Lately, I have slipped (don’t we all from time-to-time?!) and have been enjoying Sweet Tea during the summer and hot chocolate with a itsy-bitsy drop of coffee. Yum!!
What I have found is that as I moved out of those cycling-years (not on a bike ladies) and into the wonderfully free years without cycles (can’t believe I actually learned to enjoy the lack of rhythm in my life) I notice the slightest difference in my health. When I was younger I had horrible migraines. Chocolate? Sugar?
What I notice is that when I have too much chocolate or sugary-caffeinated ice-tea (I don’t drink soda but it’s all-and-the-same) I wake up feeling extremely sluggish, no energy (for an energized girl that is debilitating, lol!!)
As you can see from the picture at the top of this post, I recently purchased a bulk bag of Red Raspberry Leaf. I am going to learn how to use it (and quit digressing on this post) and drink a chocolate drink a whole lot less. What do you think?? Do you see a difference too?? Will you come on board with me and drink a cup of Red Raspberry with me??
Benefits of Tea Drinking
I wanted to have as many children as the Lord would give me. That means caring for your uterus for optimum health for both you and the babies you will carry. Our youth and vitality can be sapped from us even in our 20′s and 30′s once a girl starts having babies and taking care of herself will aid her in years to come.
Red Raspberry is the best single herb that we can take for total uterine health. Although I drank this tea often, I had no idea how important it was!! There is a long list of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that the uterus needs to function optimally. The amazing thing is that God created this wonder-herb to have virtually all of them.
The one benefit I knew of for Red Raspberry Tea is for Mom and baby during pregnancy. It strengthens the uterus and a nourishing source of vitamins and minerals that are most vital during pregnancy. There is another benefit that I was aware of during my slightly younger years (who said I was getting older??) and that was that Red Raspberry toned the uterus. An amazing fact that I never knew (but sure wish I did!!) is that it is an excellent source of an alkaloid called fragrine, which tones the muscles of the pelvic region, including the uterus. This really helps to decrease or eliminate menstrual cramps. Who knew?!
A Storehouse in Red Raspberry!!
Here are the vitamins that are part of the storehouse of Red Raspberry leaves:
Vitamin B Complex
easily assimilated calcium and iron
That makes Red Raspberry one of the best teas you can drink if you want to get away from your coffee, hot chocolate, ice tea and sodas and start a healthy habit of taking better care of yourself for your 20′s, 30′s, 40′s, and 50′s and still be around in your 60′s and beyond.
My dear friends, God has made your cycles for a purpose. You are a daughter of the King and special in His sight. Often we complain about our cycles and the difficulties and pain during the child bearing years. Embrace them as a gift from God. Take the time to care for yourself so you are around for your husband and children for many years to come.
I only chipped the tip off the iceberg, so I am likely to be back talking about what I have found in Red Raspberry Leaf. Hope you stop on in again!!
