Red Clover Tops Whole Dried Herb (Trifolium Pratense)
Red Clover is a small, short-lived perennial herbaceous plant that flowers in across Europe and western Asia, as well as some parts of Africa.
It has been traditionally been used in parts of Europe and Asia for the treatment of many health conditions. Some of the most interesting health benefits of Red Clover include its ability to treat estrogen imbalances, lower cholesterol, stimulate urination, boost circulation, strengthen bones, protect the immune system, reduce hypertension, and aid the cardiovascular system.
Studies have linked the use of red clover tea to a significant reduction in the tension of arteries and blood vessels, therefore reducing blood pressure.
The hormonal impacts of red clover are significant, particularly for women. The isoflavones found in red clover mimic estrogen, so for those women who may struggle to maintain estrogen levels, red clover can help to balance their hormonal shifts and prevent mood swings, hot flashes as well as reduce breast pain. This applies for women undergoing PMS as well as menopause, as both of these times can cause dangerous or unpredictable fluctuations in hormone levels.
Some of the compounds found in red clover can block certain enzymes that could cause prostate growth.
Research has shown that LDL cholesterol levels can be reduced by adding red clover. Furthermore, coumarins found in red clover have been shown to keep blood flowing smoothly and stimulating healthy circulation, further preventing high blood pressure and cardiovascular distress.
Red clover has been connected to increasing urination, thereby helping release excess water, toxins, and even fat from the body.
As an expectorant and antispasmodic, red clover is used to counteract fevers, inflamed lungs, and bronchitis. Red clover contains a mild sedative property, which complements its antispasmodic effects for cough. The flower is also used for inflammatory conditions associated with arthritis and gout.
Medicinal amounts of red clover are considered safe, but it is important not to consume too much, as it can be toxic. You can use the dried leaves to brew a delicious, sweet tea, and can have a number of powerful effects on the body.
Avoid in pregnancy or if you have a known hormone-sensitive condition.
