New Roots Red Raspberry Leaf
Raspberry leaves contain fragarine (a tonic for the uterus), tannins (likely responsible for the antinauseant, antivomiting, and astringent effects of this plant), polypeptides, and ellagic acid. Also, the leaves are a rich source of iron citrate which is the alterative, blood-making, astringent, and contractile agent for the female’s reproductive area. Leaves are astringent, stimulant, digestive, tonic, alterative, parturient, hemostatic, antiemetic, cathartic, and antiseptic.
