What is Red Raspberry Leaf?

Raspberry is a deciduous shrub that can grow 6’ high and has small flowers and distinct bright green leaves with teeth along the edges. This perennial plant is native to Europe, Britain, Northern Asia, and the United States. It thrives in thickets, by roadsides, in woodlands, gardens, and more.

Historical Use of Raspberry Leaf

Raspberry’s leaves, fruit and roots were commonly used amongst ancient herbalists, Native Americans, folk practitioners, and the Eclectics. Historically, raspberry leaves were used to prevent miscarriages, check hemorrhaging during labor, and as a uterine tonic to help strengthen and tone the uterine muscles. The rich and bioavailable magnesium content can help mares with irregular or painful cycles to become more comfortable, calmer, and less cranky or moody. While raspberry leaf is well known for benefiting female health, it can also help grumpy or nervous geldings! However, raspberry leaves provide many more benefits beyond hormonal support…

Many Benefits of Raspberry Leaf

Raspberry leaves have astringent properties and can be very helpful with warding off the flu or recovering faster from colds and flus. They’re deeply nutritious, and according to Herbalist Rosemary Gladstar, the high manganese content in raspberry leaves may be "used by the body to produce healthy connective tissue, such as bone matrix & cartilage, and as an important factor in energy metabolism". Raspberry leaves provide generous support for joints and help to minimize arthritis. This palatable herb offers many benefits and is a great addition to nearly any equine diet.
