In addition to tasting great and having a delicious raspberry aroma, this product is an amazing all-natural remedy for menstrual cramps toning and strengthening the uterus and pelvic muscles. After I started taking a cup of this wonderful tea a day, I forgot about my period cramps that had been torturing me for years. But that's not the only thing that raspberry leaf tea is great for. Rich in vitamins C, K, E, A, B vitamins (folic acid, pantothenic acid, niacin, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B6), manganese, magnesium, copper, iron, pota ssium, phosphorus, calcium, different amino acids, tannins, antioxidants, flavonoids, it can help people suffering from morning sickness, nausea, cardiovascular conditions, anemia, hypertension, headache, gluten intolerance and celiac disease, diabetes, leg cramps, arthritis, rheumatism, water retention, gallstones and gallbladder disease, IBS, asthma, colds, flues, asthma, gingivitis, canker sores and gum disease, acne, sunburn, eczema, psoriasis, and even cancer. Raspberry leaf tea flushes toxins out of the body, aids digestion, prevents heartburn and acid reflux, relieves nausea and bloating, increases appetite, heals gastric ulcers, soothes the stomach lining, reduces colon inflammation, facilitates healing, boosts the immune system, helps stabilize blood sugar and regulate insulin levels, prevents blood spikes keeping you full longer, normalizes blood pressure, lowers triglycerides and LDL or "bad" cholesterol levels while increasing HDL or "good" cholesterol, protects against strokes, atherosclerosis and peripheral arterial disease, helps maintain healthy bones and teeth, soothes and heals dry and damaged skin, and even reduces the risk of cancer. It's also a wonderful natural sleep aid and stress reliever, helping you calm down, fall asleep faster and get a good night’s rest. In addition to all this, raspberry leaf tea has no known side effects or contraindications. It can be applied topically to heal wounds, scars, bruises, cuts, burns, rashes and acne-affected areas of your skin. A raspberry leaf face mask or scrub improves the complexion, brightens and evens out skin tone, reduces redness, spots, blotchiness and small lines, helps break down old scar tissue and prevent premature aging. It's truly a wonderful tea. I would recommend it not only to women suffering from period cramps, but also to anyone wanting to improve their overall health and well-being.
I'm using this medicinally, so am not expecting it to taste as yummy as, say, peppermint tea, but with a little honey and sometimes lemon, it's not bad. I paid the extra money for organic because I didn't want to get residue from any of the 28 pesticides approved for use on raspberries. Raspberry tea has been traditionally used for women's issues, especially cramps.
