Personally, I love this tea! I don’t really have any problems with my periods but if I do suffer from cramp, this tea helps alleviate it. For example, when I had the Mirena Coil removed a few years ago the cramping was horrific. I drunk copious amounts of raspberry leaf tea and it really calmed things down.
It’s a uterine tonic which means it helps support and strengthen the muscles of the uterus. For this reason it is recommended in the last trimester of pregnancy. It’s a common myth that it brings on labour. It will merely help to prepare your body – not stimulate contractions.
