Info: 100 ml Tincture
Herbal medicine has established several sets of medicinal purposes for the leaves of red raspberry plants, including especially to relieve diarrhea; and for several issues related to maternity. It has been used for at least 1,500 years especially during later pregnancy to help tonify the uterine walls, shorten labour, and make the birth easier (by assisting contractions), and some midwives also counsel using it to improve breast milk production. Other internal uses for Rubus idaeus include other gastrointestinal tract disorders, upper and lower respiratory tract disorders, influenza, fever, and purifying the skin and blood.
