Red clover has been used for hundreds of years as a natural herbal remedy to treat many different diseases, including joint problems, respiratory illnesses, muscular aches and pains (particularly mastitis), inflammation of the skin and other soft tissue, and many types of cancer.
It was discovered originally by grazers who found that their cattle grew particularly healthy and illness-free after grazing on the wild red plants.
It is believed to act as a diuretic, expelling excess fluid from the body, and an expectorant to rid the lungs and airways of potentially harmful mucous.
Additionally, it has been used as a liver tonic and agent to improve the blood flow and general circulation.
Highly recommended for both male and female
Scientists have proven the instincts of ancient medicine men to be correct, in finding that red clover contains high levels of chemicals called isoflavones, which simulate some of the effects of estrogen in the body, and are used variously to treat the symptoms of menopause, such as dizziness and hot flushes, as well as ease the pain of those suffering osteoporosis, and reduces the risk of complications for patients with cardiovascular problems.
In fact it has been identified as one of the richest source of these water-soluble estrogen copycats in the natural world.
