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.

            Comments about Optimum Nutrition Essential AMIN.O. Energy - Blue Raspberry:

            I use this before workouts and whenever I need a general pickup during the day. I try to use smaller doses, but usually, it'll take 4-6 scoops to really get anything from it. However, I think that's just me because most energy drinks don't work for me.

            The taste is good but not great using the recommended amount of water because with 4+ scoops, it's kinda strong for my taste. But it's not a bad taste by any means.

            I'm going to buy another flavor now and try mixing with flavored water/juices to weaken the flavor a bit and really give it another go.

              I've used the Fruit Punch for a couple months now, thought I would give this one a try...wow. The after taste is a kicking sharp and unexpected. Not that it is over all bad, just, reminds me of a sweettart. Not a 100% sure I'll buy this one again, but I will continue with the Fruit Punch; which I have shared with coworkers and even passed onto my mom.

                I've used it as a preworkout drink & it works pretty good, but this seems o be most effective as a post workout recovery drink; it really boosts your energy levels back up & sems to help with muscle recovery.
