Traditional superfood & women's friend
Who hasn't done it yet - gone in search of a four clover? There are countless myths surrounding clover, but regardless of whether it has two, three or four leaves, it is an effective and highly valued medicinal herb. Like white or yellow clover, red clover also grows in almost every meadow in Europe. You wouldn't usually expect such a well-known herb to have the power it can provide to help our bodies.
The most valuable ingredient in red clover are the so-called red clover isoflavones. They are also called phytohormones or phytoestrogens. Red clover extract in particular contains large amounts of isoflavones, which bind to the estrogen receptors in the body and can thus prevent unwanted symptoms from occurring during menopause. The lack of estrogens caused by menopause is naturally compensated for. The actual hormonal effect compared to estrogen 1:1000 is therefore not important. Used to treat menopausal symptoms such as sweating, nervous restlessness, sleep disorders and the like, as well as to prevent osteoporosis, isoflavones bring about a significant improvement. In addition to isoflavones, red clover also contains a significant amount of biochanin A, the precursor of isoflavones, from which the body can produce further effective isoflavones. The only disadvantage of this natural helper is that the effective red clover extract does not form deposits in the body and must therefore be taken continuously. You should always check by reducing the dosage to see whether you can achieve the desired effect with a smaller amount of red clover extract.
Thanks to its ability to dock onto estrogen receptors, red clover extract not only supports menopause, but also relieves unwanted symptoms in women suffering from premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Taken before the start of the period or the symptoms or when the first symptoms appear, the isoflavones prevent only effective estrogens from “flooding” the body's receptors and thus mitigate the hormonal effects during the period. PMS symptoms are naturally alleviated and prevented. It is sufficient to use the necessary amount of red clover extract during the symptoms.
Red clover not only relieves menopausal symptoms in women but is also used for prostate care for men in the classic “mid-life crisis” and provides inner balance.
A hot infusion of the dried flowers, drunk as a herbal tea , is also an excellent remedy for coughs and respiratory diseases and is also used for stomach inflammation and fungal infections. External compresses with cloths soaked in tea provide relief and improvement in neurodermatitis.
