The best part of getting these vitamins and minerals into your body via the red raspberry leaf instead of a synthetic source is because the raspberry plant because is a food. It absorbs the elements out of the ground then pre-digests the mineral or vitamin so when you drink the tea it is more gently assimilated into your body.
You can purchase tea packets, we like the Traditional Medicinals brand, but you can use any brand we just strongly suggest it be an organic tea.
If you have a raspberry patch you can harvest your own leafs to make your tea. Be sure you are picking the "baby leafs." The leafs from the new shoots in their first year of growth. Dehydrate the leafs in a dehydrator at 100-115 degrees for a couple hours. If you don't have a dehydrator lay your leafs on a cheese cloth or mesh screen to dry in warm area out of direct sunlight. Turn them about every 12 hours for a couple days.
Store all leaves in a glass jar out of direct sunlight.
Steep the tea in hot water for a minimum of 7 minutes.
Feel free to add honey or peppermint, or anything to your taste.
Drink 1-3 cups daily starting in your 2nd trimester.
If you would rather not drink tea you can purchase red raspberry leaf in capsules.
