A super multi-use wonder plant. The berries are great, but the leaves provide a different nutritional value that you can't get from the berries. Plants can produce berries 3 times a year.

Raspberry is an astringent, stimulant, cancer-fighter, parasite-killer, helps get rid of diarrhea. soothes wounds and ulcers, stomach ailments, diarrhea, good for pregnancy, menses, uterine relaxant, high in Vitamin C, tones mucus membranes, kidneys, urinary tract, arrests hemorrhaging, excessive vaginal discharge, mouthwash, bleeding gums, canker sores.

For people who have diarrhea in the wintereven though the raspberry bushes have no leaves or fruit, take a few inches of the stem (stick) break it up and make tea out of it. This should clear up the diarrhea. It calms the intestinal tract to slow down the loss of fluids. Raspberry seeds are one of the best sources of ellagic acid, which is great for fighting fungus, mold, yeast and even cancer. It inhibits the fungal and yeast enzyme Chitin Synthase II, which all fungi and yeast need to grow. When they die at the natural end of their life cycle, they cannot be replaced as long as the Chitin Synthase II enzyme is inhibited. Since this is not a human enzyme, it’s inhibition does us no harm. Ellagic acid also unspools bacterial DNA so bacteria dies. It also tells cancerous cells to self-destruct so tumors can’t grow. And all this is found in the seeds of red raspberries! The seeds need to be broken open to release this good stuff, so freezing, powdering, blending or grinding is recommended. Raspberries can be red, black or yellow. Almost identical to blackberries.
