Ingredient Spotlight: Raspberry Leaf
While the taste is nothing like raspberries, Raspberry Leaf boasts a full body and has fruity and earthy notes. The flavor is similar to a fruity black tea such as Earl Grey.
The Woman’s Herb
Known as “the woman’s herb,” Raspberry Leaf is naturally high in vitamins and minerals we need for female health specifically: magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium, and vitamins B, A, C, and E.
This herb’s nutrient profile helps to boost overall nutrition in preparation for pregnancy. Having adequate nutrient stores prior to pregnancy can help increase your chances of a healthy pregnancy.
If you are trying to conceive, this herb may be a great ally for preparing your uterus. Raspberry leaf works to tone and strengthen the uterine wall, which may increase the chances of embryo implantation and reduce the chance of early miscarriage.
It is also a great detoxifier, working to clear toxins from your system that may be preventing pregnancy.
This is one of the best normalizing herbs for the female reproductive organs. The leaf’s phyto-progesterone quality can increase progesterone levels and and normalize blood flow during menses.
It is also safe for men to use to boost their nutrition levels in preparation for conception, as it does not contain any hormone-like substances.
(Tip: Use this tea to help heal and prepare for pregnancy for at least 3 months prior to trying to conceive.)
You may begin taking this tea before starting your ovulation cycle and may keep taking this throughout your cycle. Enjoy in either hot or cold forms, as it is beneficial in both ways.
How Much to Drink?
When you are trying to get pregnant, we suggest that you may include up to three cups of this tea. However, as soon as you conceive or become pregnant, you may reduce your intake and take up to two cups a day in your first and second trimester. You may again increase the intake for up to three cups a day in your third trimester, and this tea is effective in prepping up your body for labour and delivery.
