The raspberry is a delicious berry with a rich and enticing aroma. In Russian folklore, it is traditionally considered a symbol of happiness and bliss, which is why a happy and carefree life can be likened to "raspberry bliss". The raspberry is a polyvitaminic berry, and can be a great help in boosting the immune system and strengthening the body's vitality. Ivan-tea & Raspberry can have a very positive effect on your body by strengthening and, at the same time, relaxing it, helping you deal with stress and anxiety. It is also an age-old remedy for colds. Adding raspberry fruit to willow herb leaves gives the blend a gentle sweetness, and an unforgettable taste and flavour.
It is truly incredible, how incredibly useful and highly beneficial this much-loved berry can be!
We all know that there is no better way to cure a cold or a flu, than to drink tea with raspberry jam. But it is not just the fruit that have healing properties. The leaves too can be useful. For instance, raspberry leaves boast higher levels of vitamin C, than the fruit. Raspberries contain salicylic acid, which is a natural sudorific and antipyretic agent. However, unlike most antipyretic pills, raspberry does not have a negative effect on the body. During autumn, winter and spring, raspberry can help replenish the supply of vitamins in the human body because it contains plentiful vitamins including vitamin A (as beta carotene), vitamin E (tocopherol), vitamin C (ascorbic acid), vitamin B1 (thiamine), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), and vitamin PP (niacin), among others. Raspberries are also rich in vitamin K, which belongs to the group of lipophilic (liposoluble) and hydrophobic vitamins, necessary for the secretion of proteins that make blood clotting possible. Vitamin K also has a role to play in the body’s calcium uptake, and ensures the interaction of calcium and vitamin D.
Raspberries also contain 2 - 3 times more iron than blackcurrants, which highlights the importance of its blood-producing function for the human body.
Raspberries are rich in antioxidants, which help our bodies fight off aging, as well as preserve good health and energy.
Raspberries also contain high levels of copper, which is an active ingredient of the majority of antidepressants. Which is why if you are under a lot of stress, it might be a good time to start eating raspberries by the handful.
Raspberries also contain magnesium, which has a positive effect on the heart.
In case of any gastrointestinal ailment or disorder, raspberry can help stop vomiting and diarrhoea, reduce pain, and improve appetite.
Raspberry is known to help in curing anaemia, leukaemia, diabetes, infertility, and some gynaecological conditions.
Raspberry can also help improve kidney function and decrease bladder swelling in case of renal disease.
Beta sitosterol, also contained in the fruit, prevents the accumulation of cholesterol deposits on blood vessel walls, reducing the risk of atherosclerosis.
It is also worth noting that raspberries are very low in calories. There are only 52 kilocalories per 100 grams of fruit, which is why raspberries are an indispensable part of any diet.
What also makes this fruit so special, is that raspberries retain their medicinal properties even when cooked or otherwise thermally processed.
