dried raspberry leaves for mare heat cycles?

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has used raspberry leaves for their mares and if so did it work to help them to be less uncomfortable during their heat cycles? Also, I've heard it can be used for geldings who may be edgy.

Love, love, love them. My mare stays on Mare Magic year round. It all around makes her less of a diva. I tried taking her off of them for two weeks and holy crap she turned into a fire breathing monster. So that is a permanent staple in her diet.

Thanks SO MUCH for all of the responses! I was feeling that this would be the right thing for me to do and now after reading your responses I am certain. EllieandRose, thank you for that link to Desert Heritage Magazine. That article was very informative. :)

A friend of mine uses a combonation of White willow bark, or black cohosh with raspberry leaves for her super moody and crampy mares. One in particular was prone to colic every cycle and this helped her immensely. Ive used raspberry leaf for stressful events too, like moving to a new barn, or getting a new pasture mate. One mare in paticular is not good with change and I kept her on it for 3 months to help her adjust calmly. Never used it on geldings though, but the ones I play with tend to all act like gentleman regardless lol.
