The leaves of the common raspberry plant have been used for centuries as a strong female tonic. Raspberry Leaf may be used to enhance fertility by strengthening and toning the uterus. It is also commonly used for menstrual discomfort in mares.
Raspberry Leaf may also help support a quiet disposition in geldings.
Raspberry Leaf may also assist with regulating hormonal swings in a moody mare. In addition to its strong uterine benefits, raspberry leaf is a good astringent herb and may be used effectively in cases of diarrhoea, wet cough, bleeding gums, mouth ulcers and conjunctivitis.

HOW TO ADMINISTER:
Dried herbs may be added directly to your horses dampened feed in their dry state. Alternatively, (recommended) they may be made into an infusion (herbal tea) prior to use and the soaked herbs and liquid poured over their feed. By making an infusion prior to feeding, this releases more nutrients from the herbs and increases the health benefits.
NOTE: If Raspberry Leaf is being used to assist breeding - once a mare is in foal some owners choose to continue to feed small amounts of raspberry leaf throughout pregnancy. However, more commonly owners will stop feeding during early to mid term and re-introduce in final stages of pregnancy and continue 1-2 weeks after foaling. This is precautionary due to the uterine stimulating properties of raspberry leaf. We advise you contact your preferred veterinarian for any advice during pregnancy of your mare if unsure.
