Raspberry Leaf Tea: Benefits

image

Raspberry Leaf tea has to be one of my favorite and most beneficial herbal teas I drink. It carries a lot of benefits for pregnant women, but since I don’t plan on getting pregnant any time soon here are some of the other ways it benefits us:

* Has been shown to reduce menstrual cramps and may help to regulate the flow of menstruation due to its effects on the uterus.

*Helps to detoxify excess hormones which is very helpful during times of hormonal shift such as menopause or in the second half of the menstrual cycle (the two weeks before starting your period, which is when most women experience PMS).

Now, hold on fellahs it helps you out too:

* In herbal terms, it’s a “nourishing reproductive tonic” for men, which is just a fancy way of saying it helps “all the important stuff” work better.

* Its ability to detoxify extra hormones is helpful for men also since they are bombarded with artificial estrogens on a daily basis from commercial meat and milk, plastics, food additives, and chemical fumes (especially if they are in the construction business). These extra estrogens, along with too much unresolved stress over a lifetime, are major culprits in the phenomenon known as “andropause” or male menopause, which is characterized by a drastic drop in testosterone levels.

All of these facts came from http://www.stammnutrition.com/ . Check her out! 🙂
