Blackberry (Rubus species)





Common names: Blackberry

Taxonomic name: Rubus species

Family: Rosaceae

Area of origin: Europe

Warnings: None

Blackberries are well known for their delicious berries, they’re full of vitamins C and K, manganese and both soluble and insoluble fibre.

The vitamins and tannins in Blackberries make them useful for wound healing with the vitamin C helping fight infection while the tannins and vitamin K help with clotting.

Besides helping to heal external wounds, these compounds mean that an infusion of Blackberry leaves can stop diarrhoea in its tracks. When the high levels of tannins in the leaves hit the intestinal lining, they cause it to tone and tighten.

It’s a sure way to stop you when nothing else will.
