Red clover is a source of many valuable nutrients, and is also considered to be one of the richest sources of isoflavones. The isoflavones isolated from this herb have been studied for their effectiveness in treating some forms of cancer.

red clover

This herb is a wild plant used as grazing food for livestock. Historically it has been used to treat a wide array of conditions, including cancer, mastitis (inflammation of the breast), joint disorders, jaundice, bronchitis, coughing, asthma, and skin inflammations, such as psoriasis and eczema.

This herb promotes urine and mucous production, the secretion of bile, and improved circulation, which may "purify" the blood. It's also known for improving circulation, and stimulating the secretion of bile. Recently, specific chemicals found in this herb known as isoflavones, have been isolated and tested for their effectiveness in treating a variety of conditions. Red clover is also considered to be one of the richest sources of isoflavones (water-soluble chemicals that act like estrogens and are found in many plants). It is thought that the isoflavones prevent the proliferation of cancer cells and that they may even destroy cancer cells. Furthermore, isoflavones have shown promise in the treatment of a number of conditions associated with menopause, such as hot flashes, cardiovascular health, and the bone loss associated with osteoporosis.

Menopause increases a woman's risk for developing cardiovascular disease. Supplementation with isoflavones has been associated with an increase in high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, or "good" cholesterol in pre- and postmenopausal women. Also, one recent study found that menopausal women taking red clover supplements experienced a significant improvement in the strength and resilience of the arterial walls. This lowers a woman's risk for heart disease.

This herb also may reduce the severity and number of hot flashes in menopausal women. Red clover may slow the bone loss common at this age and may even improve bone mineral density.

Besides being a good source of isoflavones, this herb includes the minerals calcium, chromium, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, and thiamine. It is also a rich source of vitamin C. It is also valued for its ability to loosen phlegm and calm bronchial spasms.

Special Note About Red Clover as it Interacts in our Essiac Formula

Some people with certain types of cancers are concerned with the potential effect on estrogen levels with red clover. The good new is that essiac works as a formula, not as individual ingredients. In other words, just because taking one herb alone might have one effect, that doesn't mean that taking one herb in combination with our herbs as it is the essiac formula is going to have the same effect. To the contrary, two of the most common conditions people report great results with are: breast cancer and ovarian cancer.
