What is Red Raspberry?
There is much more to this plant than the tasty red berries it produces. The greenery has been used for centuries as a female tonic, pregnancy supportive herb and nutritive herb. The mechanism for red raspberries hormonal regulating activity is not known. It is used for menstrual complaints like heavy bleeding and cramps, and menopausal complaints, like hot flashes.
During pregnancy, red raspberry strengthens the uterus and regulates muscle activity. It can be helpful for morning sickness because it reduces irritation in the stomach. It also helps with indigestion and diarrhea by regulating intestinal contractions. Red raspberry contains many vitamins and minerals, making it a nutritive herb. This helps to support the growth of nails, bones, teeth, skin and, in pregnancy, the fetus.
PMS, menopause, pregnancy, stress, breast health, sexual health and emotional well being. These are all major health concerns for women - some frustrating like PMS, others wonderful like pregnancy. What each has in common is a large hormonal component. Hormones can fluctuate drastically depending on diet, nutritional status, toxicity level, and other factors such as job and family stress. It's important for each of these health concerns (and many others) that hormones be maintained at a healthy level, in respect to optimizing production, but also in respect to breaking down or detoxifying excess or un-needed hormones. Too much is just as harmful as to little.
The female human body can be thought of as a complex network of cells that communicate via hormone messengers. These messengers are responsible for telling cells what to do and when to do it. In the female body the sex hormones, estrogen, progesterone, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), and testosterone, play an important role in the maintenance of health and fertility. High or low levels of these hormones can cause different complaints, depending on the age of a woman. In addition, normal hormone levels protect other body systems from breaking down, for example the cardiovascular and skeletal systems. The liver and bowels are important organs for women's health because they are responsible for processing hormones and excreting processed hormones. Performing liver and bowel detoxification will help to decrease most women's health concerns by ensuring proper functioning of these organs and thereby regulating hormone levels. The thyroid and adrenal glands work as a team with the ovaries to regulate sexual functioning within the overall health of the woman. This explains why other medical concerns such as hypothyroidism, stress, depression and malnourishment can lead to infertility.
