The raspberry, scientific name Rubus idaeus, belongs to the Rosaceae family. This plant is a shrub that in summer produces sweet and delicious fruits, highly appreciated both naturally and processed in the form of juices, syrups or jams, while its leaves are used as a herbal remedy in the form of infusions with anti-inflammatory properties useful in case of stomach and urinary tract problems. Today, however, we will talk about the properties of another remedy obtained from raspberry, in particular from its buds, the raspberry glycerine macerate.
Raspberry glycerine macerate, properties
Raspberry buds are rich in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory substances and vitamins (Dono et al, J Sci Food Agric, 2016). The extract of these buds is very useful to relieve female hormonal disorders at any age (Brigo, natural medicine from A to Z). In fact, it acts as an antispasmodic, bringing relief in the case of abdominal cramps (Rojas-Vera et al, Phytother Res, 2002). Hence the raspberry glycerine macerate can be used to alleviate the pains associated with a heavy and painful period. Not only that, this herbal remedy also acts against other disorders related to the menstrual cycle such as water retention or irritability. In addition, raspberry glycerin macerate proves useful in case of fibroma, ovarian cysts and menopause related problems such as flushing.
Raspberry glycerin macerate, uses and synergies
You can take raspberry glycerine macerate in a dose of 50 drops per day in a little water. You can also take advantage of the synergy of raspberry with other glycerine macerates. For example, in case of ovarian cysts the combination is with Ribes nigrum, to mitigate the symptoms related to menopause the synergy is with Vaccinum vitis idaea, or cranberry, while in case of uterine fibroma the combination is with Rubus fructicosus, or common bramble.
