Long used by the Druids, this plant became known as "Nature's medicine chest" for treating upper respiratory infections and fevers. Raspberry leaf has long been used in herbal medicine for hundreds of years as a astringent and stimulant. Raspberry leaf derives from the raspberry bush containing woody stems with thorns, pale green leaves, white flowers, and delicious edible red berries. Medicinally, the leaf is used and is a rich source of Vitamin C, iron, and niacin.
