Raspberry leaf has a long tradition of use during the last trimester of pregnancy to strengthen and tone the uterine and pelvic muscles, and then during labour to assist contractions and to check haemorrhage. It is believed that the alkaloid fragarine is responsible for this action. High doses should be avoided during the early stages of pregnancy as raspberry leaf can stimulate uterine contractions. Rich in nutrients, it can also enrich and encourage the flow of breast milk.
Raspberry leaf contains high amounts of tannins so the resulting astringent action make it a beneficial herb in the treatment of heavy or irregular periods as well as diarrhoea and irritable bowel conditions. The calcium and magnesium content of the leaves may also help alleviate muscle spasms and PMS cramps. A cooling herb, raspberry leaf tea can help to reduce fever, and an infusion of the herb may be used as a gargle for tonsillitis or as an eyewash in conjunctivitis.

A herbal company with a passion for pure. Made in the UK and pioneers of herbal products and herbal blends of the best quality. Bio-Health developed their 'Pure fil' range, to strictly exclude all additives back in the 1980s which goes hand in hand with our filler free ethos. The Pure fil range features the easy to take psyllium husk capsules, raspberry leaf and fenugreek seed capsules. We are also proud to supply their best selling herbal supplements for women including Periagna (Agnus Castus fruit) and Salvian (sage).
Bio-Health recognise that in each plant there are probably hundreds of different chemical compounds and these exert a gentle action and modify and "buffer" each other and assist in the bio-availability of the herb when taken. Bio-flavonoids are a prime example of this action. Therefore, Bio-Health maintains firmly, that until it is proved unscientific, illogical or ineffective they will continue to produce Herbal Medicinal Products with a minimum of processing to retain in the dry form "all the known and unknown compounds" in the leaf, fruit, bark, root, stem or combination of all for the best herbal medicines available.
