DESCRIPTION

West Indian Raspberry, Rubus rosifolius Originating from Asia and Australia this weedy raspberry, aka Ola'a in Hawaiian, grows in low lying areas unlike other species that are typically found at higher elevations. Raspberry leaf has been used for centuries as a healing herb for women. High in magnesium, calcium, iron, potassium, vitamin C, and B-vitamins, this tonic nutritive is extremely beneficial for the female reproductive system. Strengthening for the uterus and pelvic muscles, raspberry leaf assists in relieving menstrual pain and cramps, while also treating anemia and diarrhea.
