RED CLOVER FROM NATURE'S WAY
Certified organic and derived from the stem, leaf and flower Red Clover herb has been used for centuries as an herbal tonic. Used frequently by the Europeans as a mixture for salads, Red Clover Blossoms offer unique medicinal properties. Naturally high in isoflavones, bioflavonoids, vitamins and minerals, Red Clover has purifying properties and is often recommended by herbalists for cleansing the blood. May also be helpful for bacterial infections, skin disorders, menopause and others.
The pretty flowering tops of the red clover are the medicinally active part of the plant. Red clover is a phytoestrogenic agent. This means that it contains plant estrogens, compounds that look similar to human estrogen and can interact with estrogen receptors in the human body. The important thing to remember is that these plant estrogens only stimulate the receptors a fraction of the amount that the hormone estrogen would.
Therefore red clover can be used to treat conditions of high estrogen activity, by blocking the activity of the hormone estrogen. It can also treat conditions of low estrogen activity by binding to vacant receptor sites and causing a bit of hormonal stimulation. Red clover is used to treat menopausal symptoms, like hot flashes, anxiety and depression, and PMS. A liquid extract of red clover is popular in Europe as a detoxification agent that targets the kidneys and liver.
Take 2 capsules 5 times daily with water at meal times.
