Red clover (Trifolium pratense L.) is a plant in the Fabaceae botanical family that’s used to make an herbal supplement that has immune-boosting and positive hormonal effects, especially for women. Over the past several decades, Red Clover has come to be known as an effective, all-natural treatment for lowering menopause symptoms, improving bone mineral density, and lowering risk for heart-related problems like high cholesterol and high blood pressure symptoms. It’s also used to treat several conditions related to inflammation and low immunity, including coughs, respiratory infections, or skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.
Traditionally used to balance hormones and stop mucus accumulation in the oral, nasal and ocular passages, research shows people taking red clover extract experience overall satisfaction regarding many different “symptoms of aging” compared to placebo groups — and often conventional medicines too. Research has shown that red clover is safe for most people and works relatively quickly, bringing positive changes to the health of the scalp, hair, skin, libido, mood, sleep and energy within several months of use. Red Clover was shown to significantly improve other common symptoms of estrogen loss during menopause, including low libido, mood, sleep and tiredness. Bone Strength Research has shown that the most common type of osteoporosis is bone loss associated with ovarian hormone deficiency at menopause, which is why there’s evidence that diets that contain high levels of phytoestrogenic isoflavones are associated with a low incidence of osteoporosis and other menopausal complications. Thus, red clover makes a great addition to any osteoporosis diet. Studies have shown that red clover can help improve arterial health, reduce the risk for atherosclerosis (hardening or thickening of the arteries), boost circulation, manage high cholesterol and help prevent coronary heart disease. In older women and men, heart disease remains the No. 1 cause of death in the U.S. and many other western nations. While most studies examining red clover’s effects on heart health have been conducted using animals and not humans, research suggests that red clover helps protect against heart disease thanks to its isoflavones, which can increase HDL “good” cholesterol, keep blood clots from forming and produce more flexibility in arteries. Research findings suggest that red clover’s isoflavones are effective for helping to slow down signs of aging on the skin, as well as lowering inflammatory skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema and various rashes. Studies over the past several decades have shown that red clover’s effects on estrogen levels give it most of its anti-inflammatory, UV protective, collagen-boosting and wound-healing potentials. In older adults, red clover reduces the effects of skin aging induced by estrogen deprivation and can help boost collagen production.
Red clover is used for prevention and treatment of respiratory conditions like whooping cough, colds, asthma and bronchitis. It has natural cleansing effects within the body, reduces anxiety and discomfort during illness, and has the ability to loosen phlegm. Because it can calm bronchial spasms, improve sleep quality, and help flush extra mucus and fluids from the respiratory system, it’s beneficial to take as soon as you feel an illness coming on.
