Latin Name : Trifolium Pratense
Red clover (Trifolium pratense) is a wild flowering plant belonging to the same family as peas and beans.. It’s widely used in traditional medicine as a remedy for menopause symptoms, asthma, whooping cough, arthritis, and even cancer.
– Menopausal symptoms: Red clover’s high isoflavone content is believed to help lower menopause symptoms, such as hot flashes and night sweats.
– Hypertension: Some of the unique properties of red clover include its ability to reduce inflammation throughout the body, particularly in the cardiovascular system.
– Immune System: If you consume the greens of red clover, you are much more likely to get a high dose of vitamin C than if you consume the tea. Vitamin C is a powerful immune system booster, and can help to stimulate the production of white blood cells. Furthermore, if you consume the leaves in the form of tea, then you can get a healthy dose of antioxidants.
– Cholesterol-Lowering Properties: If you struggle to maintain healthy cholesterol levels, you significantly increase your chances of heart attacks and strokes as a result of atherosclerosis. Therefore, anything that can lower cholesterol levels is valuable, and research has shown that LDL cholesterol levels can be reduced by adding red clover.
– Detoxify the Body: If you want to find a quick way to detoxify your body and clear your system of excess toxins and salts, nothing works better than a diuretic. Red clover has been connected to increasing urination, thereby helping release excess water, toxins, and even fat from the body.
