Red Clover Herb - Blood Cleanser
Red Clover is a blood cleanser that is used medicinally for breast pain, cancer, bronchitis, fertility, inflammation, joint pain, menopausal symptoms and skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis.
Red Clover is used to help restore irregular menses and to balance the acid-alkaline level of the vagina to promote conception.
Phytoestrogens from Red Clover help to maintain proper bone density in menopausal women, as well as relieving hot flashes and breast pain. Red clover is recognized as a detoxification herb or 'blood cleanser.' Red Clover has been used for treating respiratory problems, colds, flu and infections.
Red Clover contains one of the best mucus clearing sources in nature. An excellent blood purifier and cleanser of the system, especially the tops of the plant, which are used in this formula have a reputation throughout the world as an anti-cancer herb and has been used to treat and help prevent cancer, and as a diuretic to treat gout.
Red Clover's antibiotic properties have been used for many types of bacterial skin diseases, and a remedy for wasting type diseases. The first cancer clinic in Mexico, founded by Dr. Hoxsey, used Red Clover tops in his treatment. Red Clover helps the liver and gall bladder by its stimulating action.
There is no evidence that Red Clover can help cancer. However, its usage in many parts of the world as a traditional cancer remedy has prompted scientists to take a close look at the herb. It turns out that the isoflavones in Red Clover may possess anti-tumor activity.
Red Clover is sometimes recommended for the treatment of acne, eczema, psoriasis, and other skin diseases. Red Clover is one of the most useful remedies for children with skin problems. It may be used with complete safety for childhood eczema. It may also be of value in other chronic skin conditions such as psoriasis. The expectorant and anti-spasmodic action give this remedy a role in the treatment of coughs, bronchitis and whooping cough.
A supplement containing Red Clover isoflavones reduced breast pain by 44%, reports David Ingram, MD, director of the Breast Centre at Sir Charles Gardiner Hospital in Perth, Australia. His study is published in a recent issue of The Breast Journal.
Premenstrual breast pain is related to hormone changes during the menstrual cycle and is very common among women - at least those in Western countries. Until now, doctors have had difficulty treating this problem, but the Red Clover supplement looks like a "realistic option" for women suffering from it, Ingram says in a news release.
There has been growing scientific evidence over the past five years that isoflavones, which are natural compounds found in plants like Red Clover, mimic the activity of the body's own hormones. Women in Eastern countries have less trouble with premenstrual breast pain; they also have more isoflavones in their diet compared to Western women, largely from soy products.
The Red Clover isoflavones are believed to act as a weak estrogen, which reduces the amount of estrogen produced in breast cells, thereby reducing pain. Phytoestrogens have mild estrogenic properties that block estrogen receptors. This is also believed to be the key to Red Clover's ability to modify symptoms of menopause.
With this new study, a team of researchers in Amsterdam wanted to determine if the frequency of hot flashes could be reduced, using a standardized extract of Red Clover. A group of 30 menopausal women, 49 to 65 years old, were divided into two groups. One group received a placebo for three months, while the other group received 80 mg per day of the Red Clover extract. The subjects agreed to eliminate any items from their diets that contained isoflavones (such as soy products, grains and cabbage). Every four weeks the women were interviewed for details about their menopause symptoms.
When the results were analyzed, the researchers found that the women in the placebo group experienced no change in the frequency of their hot flashes. The women who received Red Clover, however, enjoyed a 44% reduction in their hot flash frequency. Furthermore, once the maximum decrease was fully established (after about 8 weeks of use), the reduction of frequency was maintained for the remaining 4 weeks of the study.
