Raspberry leaf, known scientifically as Rubus idaeus L., has been recognized for its numerous benefits in herbal medicine. The leaves of this plant contain various essential nutrients, including flavonoids, tannins, and polypeptides that contribute to its medicinal properties.
One of the significant benefits of raspberry leaf is its ability to manage menstrual cramps and regulate irregular periods. The presence of fragrine, an alkaloid found in raspberry leaves, strengthens the uterus muscles and improves their elasticity.
Furthermore, it also supports lactation after childbirth by boosting milk production due to its high vitamin C and E contents. Additionally, raspberry leaf is rich in antioxidants that help combat oxidative stress caused by free radicals and boosts immune function.
