INGREDIENTS: Organic Red Clover (Trifolium pratense)
As a gentle cleansing tea, red clover appears to offer many benefits to health. High in natural protective antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, red clover is good for general health, and is a tasty beverage.
Red clover has long been used as a “blood purifier,” specifically for the potential treatment of cancer. It is also a blood thinner. This is due to the concentration of coumarin found in the blossoms. For cases of thrombosis and other conditions in which thick blood obstructs vessels, red clover tea may be of benefit.
The pain-relieving properties of red clover are likely due to the presence of the anti-inflammatory compounds eugenol, myricetin and salicylic acid in the flowers. Salicylic acid also demonstrates activity against eczema.
Red clover may reduce menopausal symptoms due to its high level of isoflavones. When estrogen levels fall, isoflavones can have positive effects in reducing symptoms related to estrogen loss such as hot flashes, trouble sleeping, weight gain, bone loss, bone fractures, osteoporosis, cardiovascular problems, and inflammation of the joints.*
WARNING: Do not take Red Clover if you are under blood-thinning medications. Prior to surgery, drinking red clover is not recommended, as it may exacerbate surgical bleeding..
The presence of phytoestrogens – plant compounds that mimic estrogen – has led many doctors to warn against using red clover preparations if women have had reproductive health disorders including endometriosis, uterine fibroids, or breast and uterine cancers. The presence of phytoestrogens may increase rather than alleviate these conditions.
