Red Raspberry Leaf Tea - Cycle Support

Red Raspberry Leaf Tea - Cycle Support

If you're not hip to red raspberry leaf and its many benefits for women's menstrual cycles, then this post is for you!  Read on to learn all the ways it can support you. 


  1. Cramps: While it may not fully remove cramps, it can lessen their intensity. Red raspberry leaf comes to your rescue with its muscle-relaxing magic, helping to soothe the pain.  Pair this with a TENS unit and magnesium...and you may be able to avoid reaching for pain pills.

  2. Hormone Harmony: A balanced cycle is a much more comfortable cycle. This herb has been used historically for hormone balance, helping to keep your menstrual cycle steady and regular.  Feeling confident that you know when your period will come and go can make life a lot less stressful.

  3. Uterine Tonic: Meet your uterus's new BFF. Red raspberry leaf is like a superhero, helping to tone & strengthen uterine muscles.

  4. PMS Support: Many women use red raspberry leaf to alleviate symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome (PMS), such as bloating, breast tenderness, and mood swings. The anti-inflammatory and muscle-relaxing properties of the herb could potentially contribute to this effect.

  5. Anemia: Red raspberry leaf is a source of iron, which is important for preventing anemia, a condition characterized by low levels of red blood cells. Heavy menstrual bleeding can lead to iron loss, and consuming iron-rich herbs like red raspberry leaf may help mitigate this effect. Iron is better absorbed when consumed in conjunction with Vitamin C.  Add a squeeze of lemon to your raspberry leaf tea!

Our favorite way to have red raspberry leaf is in tea form. Traditional Medicinals makes our favorite red raspberry leaf tea. We have a cup every day, sometimes with added cinnamon and ginger. Consistency is key for reaping its health benefits!


As always, consult with your healthcare practitioner before starting a new supplement or herb to ensure it is a good, safe fit for you!
