Red Raspberry: Rubus idaeus (L.)
Why Red Raspberry Leaf? A perennial plant found throughout North America, Europe, and northwestern Asia, red raspberry grows best in northern climates where spring has a slow, long warming process. It is a delicious and hearty addition to herbal teas.
Quality Assured: Our certified organic red raspberry leaf is sustainably sourced from Bulgaria. This herb is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and grown without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Our experts here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally evaluate every herb through taste, touch, and smell to assure that you are receiving the best botanicals suitable for use.
Benefits: Red raspberry leaf is particularly yummy during the cold winter months and, with a flavor similar to black tea, is a useful substitute when you're trying to cut caffeine. It is also known to support healthy cell integrity.
Cautions and Contraindications: Raspberry leaf is considered safe when used appropriately. Avoid use when there is a history of miscarriage unless under supervision of a healthcare practitioner.
