Overview Herbalists have long prized Red Clover for its traditional use as a blood purifier, using it to eliminate toxins from the bloodstream. Whilst native to Europe it has been widely cultivated all over the world as an important herb for women’s health, used to remedy menstrual and menopausal symptoms. It’s an effective, all-natural treatment for improving bone mineral density, and lowering risk for heart-related problems like high blood pressure. It’s also used to treat several conditions related to inflammation and low immunity, including coughs, respiratory infections, or inflammatory skin conditions.
Typical usage and preparations Use as tea infusion or take internally in capsules. Can be used as a tonic for your skin: just use a cotton ball soaked with warm, not hot, red clover infusion. Can be used in a form of tincture or oil infusion.
Precautions Do not take Red Clover if you are taking blood thinning medication. Red Clover is contraindicated in pregnancy and lactation because it contains phytosterols, with estrogenic and abortifacient properties.
