Health Notes

Red Raspberry

Red Raspberry
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

Pregnancy and Postpartum Support
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Many tonic herbs, which are believed to strengthen or invigorate organ systems or the entire body, can be taken safely every day during pregnancy. Examples include dandelion leaf and root, red raspberry leaf, and nettle. Dandelion leaf and root are rich sources of vitamins and minerals, including beta-carotene, calcium, potassium, and iron. Dandelion leaf is mildly diuretic (promotes urine flow); it also stimulates bile flow and helps with the common digestive complaints of pregnancy. Dandelion root is traditionally used to strengthen and invigorate the liver.1

Red raspberry leaf is the most frequently mentioned traditional herbal tonic for general support of pregnancy and breast-feeding. Rich in vitamins and minerals (especially iron), it is traditionally used to strengthen and invigorate the uterus, increase milk flow, and restore the mother's system after childbirth.2

Diarrhea
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Astringent herbs traditionally used for diarrhea include blackberry leaves, blackberry root bark, blueberry leaves, and red raspberry leaves.1 Raspberry leaves are high in tannins and, like blackberry, may relieve acute diarrhea. A close cousin of the blueberry, bilberry, has been used traditionally in Germany for adults and children with diarrhea.2 Only dried berries or juice should be used-fresh berries may worsen diarrhea.

Cranesbill has been used by several of the indigenous tribes of North America to treat diarrhea. The tannins in cranesbill likely account for the anti-diarrheal activity3-although there has been little scientific research to clarify cranesbill's constituents and actions.

      Okay, this product is absolutely unbelievable. Make sure you use it as directed. For me I weigh 220 lbs. I took 2.5 scoops before I workout and 2.5 scoops after my workouts. On my days off I took three scoops in the morning. You have to take this product religiously for it to work. I saw awesome improvements in my size and strength. I put on more than a pound a week doing full body workouts. Great for athletes.

      First off, it says 48 servings but it is based on body weight, one scoop per 100 lbs, so at 200 lbs it was already cut to 24 servings. I seen zero results and did not gain in any of my lifts. It is good for recovery and tastes pretty decent. I am going with a simple creatine monohydrate from now on, Con-Crete just didn't do it for me in the strength department.

          The recommended use for this product tells you to take an hour prior to workout, In my case with my mixture of supplements i found it at greater value to my body and my recovery to take it right after my workout. This product taste great way easier to get down then most products i have tried. It can be a little deceiving from the container it comes in, first time i have tried micro-scoops and will defiantly not be the last time.

          Comments about CONCRET 1008695 ProMera Health™ CON-CRET® - Blue Raspberry:

          The packaging is definitely the right size for the product since the recommended dosage is about 1/2 a teaspoon. I originally thought "What a waste of money!" since the packaging is so small.
          The flavor is better than the Monster Amino Blue Raspberry. The package states to take this 1 hour prior to exercising, but I think that is a little exaggerated and should probably be about 30 to 45 minutes. I find that 1 scoop is plenty. This product definitely provides your muscles with energy and allows for longer exercise periods without muscle fatigue.
          The best thing is that there is no caffeine in the product, so the creatine alone generates the necessary muscle energy.
          The only down side is that the high energy expense during exercising causes me to be very tired at night.
