Re: Red Raspberry Leaf Tea

It calms your uterus? Wow. Would this be good for cramps associated with a period? Mine are pretty horrible, and I'm afraid they may just get worse after my miscarriage. If this will help with period cramps (I sometimes drink pickle juice, I imagine this will taste better), then I'd be willing to try it!

I would think so. But it depends on the person. I drank it for PMS symptoms in general (mood swings etc) and it really helped.

Check out motherlove's site as well as looking up established, midwives and talking with them about rrl. I have always been told it is good, or great, at any point in a womans life. It is excellent for helping a baby stick early pregnancy, therefore helping prevent miscarriage, helps with menstrual issues, great for toning the uterus prepping for labor, etc it is also a main ingredient in the post partum tea my midwives give me.

Re: Red Raspberry Leaf Tea

This tea seems to have a lot of potential benefits. It could be coincidence but I did read that it has iron, and just the iron pills alone didn't seem to do much, but now that I am also drinking the tea my energy level has been a little higher.

I prefer to buy the red raspberry leaf and brew it over the tea bags. I don't know if there is a huge difference or not. I just boil water and put the loose leaf in a metal colander over the pot. Then I let it cool. I pour it into a 64 ounce bottle and put some sugar in to make it as sweet tea. I drink at around half a bottle a day.

This is my first pregnancy trying it but I feel optimistic that it will be helpful. Plus it taste pretty good as cold sweet tea.

My MW said iI could drink up to 3 quarts a day. She said I could even drink it in the place of a lot of my water. I don't... I only brew up 2 bags a day. It's pretty tasty with honey. I don't much care for it as ice tea, though.
