Who would have thought that raspberry leaves were good for anything? Well, the fact of the matter is they've been used for centuries to help to keep your body healthy. 
 
So, what makes them so special? At face value, we have to admit that chewing on leaves isn't our first choice to improve our wellbeing. However, one quick read of this article, and you'll be after those leaves in no time. 
 
The Raspberry Leaf 
 
Okay, full disclaimer, you can't actually eat raspberry leaves raw. Doing so won't harm you but it wouldn't taste great either. That's why for centuries people have been boiling them to use in tea. 
 
The leaves, which are used in tea and other health drinks, are full of vitamins and minerals that have been proven to benefit the drinker. 
 
What are the benefits of raspberry leaves? 
 
The raspberry leaf is just a great all-rounder for your body. The leaves carry many nutrients, including vitamins A, C and E, as well as calcium, iron and potassium. (Ref: https://www.earthsfriends.com/raspberry-leaf-tea-benefits/
 
The leaves contain astringent properties, which is known for its relaxing abilities, meaning it helps with sleep. 
 
Raspberry leaves are often linked to the process of detoxifying. 
 
Trying for a baby? The properties of raspberry leaves can help strengthen the uterine wall and potentially reduce the risk of a miscarriage. 
 
There are just some of the benefits of raspberry leaves, although these reasons do not necessarily explain why they were included in the original family recipe of Overhang. It's probably just because the raspberry leaf makes it taste so good! It's always a great feeling knowing you're putting something revitalising into your body.
