Strawberry Leaf Organic
Botanical Name: Fragaria vesca
Strawberry leaf is known to be helpful in digestive complaints, liver disease, gout and arthritis. It’s a supportive therapy for the respiratory, nervous and circulatory systems. The leaves have been used as a diuretic to remove gravel and stones and promote overall kidney health while improving the condition of the blood, stimulating the metabolism and as an overall tonic. In the female reproductive system, strawberry leaf has been shown to inhibit menstruation. The leaves are also used topically on rashes.
Strawberry leaf contains tannins, which are responsible for the leaves’ astringent activity in the body. They contain a small amount of ascorbic acid (vitamin C), flavonoids, proanthocyanidins and the antibiotic fragarin.
