Herb 101: Red Clover

Red Clover, with the scientific name Trifolium Pratens, is one of the most popular and well-known among the 245 known species in the genus. The red clover, is a small, short-lived perennial herbaceous species of flowering plant in the bean family Fabaceae, native to Europe, Western Asia and northwest Africa, but planted and naturalised in many other regions. The flowers are small and pinkish-purple, and due to their rapid growth rate and high nutritional value, they are often used as fodder for animals. While some consider this delightful little flower to be a weed and others use it only as fodder for livestock, red clover is also an extremely useful herb. Red clover blossom tea makes an effective herbal remedy for cold symptoms like cough and congestion. Red Clover is also great for detoxifying the body and the blood.

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 protect the cardiovascular system. Modern scientific tests have shown that red clover contains isoflavones, plant-based chemicals that produce estrogen-like effects in the body. Isoflavones have shown potential in the treatment of several conditions associated with menopause, such as hot flashes, cardiovascular health, and osteoporosis.
