RED CLOVER (Trifolium pratense)

Red Clover

DESCRIPTION: This perennial is abundant on meadow land in a light sandy nature producing an abundant blossom. The flowers are Magenta, pink, or rarely whitish, and sweet-scented.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS: Red clover is used for cancer prevention, indigestion, high cholesterol, whooping cough, cough, asthma, and bronchitis. Also used to treat respiratory infections and skin problems like eczema. The isoflavones in red clover called phytoestrogens exert a weak estrogenic effect due to their ability to bind estrogen receptors. This is of special interest to women in relieving the symptoms of menopause and providing protection against osteoporosis by helping to maintain bone density.

POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS: Red Clover contains hormone-like chemicals called isoflavones which has been known to cause reproductive problems in certain animals. Safe in normal amounts used in food and safe in medicinal amounts by mouth or applied to skin. Red clover can cause rash-like reactions, muscle ache, headache, nausea, and vaginal bleeding (spotting) in some women.

PARTS USED: Flower tops
