Raspberry leaf is frequently used by women during pregnancy. Raspberry Leaf is a mild astringent which gently contracts and tones the entire reproductive system. The hormones of pregnancy loosen muscle structures so that the uterus and surrounding muscles can stretch to accommodate the growing fetus. This loosening often results in the interesting symptoms of pregnancy such as constipation (or occasionally diarrhea), frequent urination, bleeding gums, and pain in joints and tendons. Raspberry Leaf, taken as a tea or tincture, greatly reduces these symptoms while still allowing the uterus to expand and the hips to move apart as needed. Constipation is not normal but a softening uterus during pregnancy is. It should be considered by diabetics to stabilize the pancreas. Raspberry Leaf is frequently used for sore mouth, sore throat, and spongy gums. It is a main ingredient in formulas that are used in the eyes.
