Tips Tricks & Warnings

  • You may also buy a ready-made raspberry leaf tea at your local market.
  • Dried red raspberry leaves and supplements are also available at the supermarket. However, using fresh red raspberry leaves is more effective, according to some consumers.
  • Red raspberry fruit is likely safe to eat, and possibly safe to consume in large amounts as herbal medicine.
  • Do not take other medications while taking red raspberry leaves, because there's a chance they may create chemical reactions. To take this properly, drink raspberry leaf tea four hours before taking any medications.
  • Before taking any herbs, consult your doctor first. People have different immune systems and food tolerance. You may be prone to allergic reactions from some active components that may be found in plants, so it is better to see your doctor before drinking red raspberry leaf tea.

Questions and Answers

Is there a higher magnesium level in fresh new RRL, or in the dried leaves?

I have low magnesium levels and I'm looking for the highest concentration of magnesium.

There is no difference. Magnesium does not evaporate or disappear when the leaves are dried up as it is a part of a salt.
