Raspberry leaf tea for pregnancy
I hear that this tea is "good" for female health. Toning the uterus comes to mind. But how does it work? Does it have an effect on hormone levels or just organs/tissues?

Most of the action comes from the phytoestrogen content, which has a balancing effect on the hormones.

As for pregnancy the leaf helps to relax the uterus, but does not inhibit oxytocin. This is why it is used to ease child birth.

Raspberry leaf also contains the alkaloid fragrine, which tones the uterine muscle.

Raspberry leaf tea is also drunk before, during and after pregnancy for its rich nutrient content.
