Red Clover is considered a fine herbal expectorant and anti-inflammatory and is said to be one of the best mucus-clearing sources in nature. This action helps to loosen and expel phlegm from the lungs and chest and is effective in relieving bronchial troubles, inflamed lungs, colds, dry, unproductive coughs, wheezing and bronchitis.
As an antispasmodic and general relaxant, Red Clover helps to relieve spasms of all kinds, including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), whooping cough, nervous and tension headaches, inflamed bowels, stomach and intestines. In addition, the salicylic acid (the natural forerunner of synthetic aspirin) acts as an herbal pain reliever and thus helps to ease pain and inflammation.
Red Clover is a wonderful detergent and cleansing tonic. It is considered a depurative that purifies the blood by promoting the body's eliminative functions. By encouraging the production of bile, the herb is said to help to purify the liver, thus cleansing toxins from the bloodstream
As a diuretic, Red Clover further helps to cleanse the body by stimulating the production of urine and helping to flush impurities from the kidneys and bladder and removing waste from the system in the increased urine flow. The increased urine flushes accumulated uric acid and can help to relieve gout and arthritis. In addition, this diuretic action also helps to relieve urinary tract inflammation and irritation.
As an antibacterial, Red Clover is said to fight bacterial infections and is believed to be effective against tuberculosis and syphilis.
Red Clover is said to be beneficial in cases of wasting and chronic degenerative diseases and a weakened immune system, and current research is hopeful for its use in combating HIV and AIDS.
The flavonoids in Red Clover are said to be estrogenic, and this was discovered when livestock consumed large amounts of the plant. This is especially interesting for women's health in that it is said to increase fertility and reduce the unpleasant side effects of menopause, including hot flashes and vaginal dryness.
When taken internally, Red Clover's powerful blood cleansing properties have been used to relieve many skin complaints, especially acne, eczema and psoriasis.
Currently, there are no known warnings or contraindications with the use of Red Clover; however, due to its coumarin content, the potential to enhance anticoagulant effects exists. Because Red Clover Red may have estrogenic activity, it should be avoided or used cautiously by patients with hormone-sensitive disease. Taking Red Clover and a contraceptive may cause the contraceptive not to work well.
