Red Clover Leaf Sample OverviewRed Clover - trifolium pratense - All parts of this plant are edible: the leaves, seeds, flowers, and root. The leaves can be eaten raw or cooked. The seeds, sprouted, can be eaten in salads. The flower can be eaten and the root, eaten after it is cooked. Red clover is well used medicinally - internally it is expectorant, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, diuretic, cleansing and used to treat skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It is one of the best phlegm reducing natural products of nature. As a diuretic, it cleanses the body and as such, removes the toxic build up that creates so many disorders.
Once known primarily for its eliminative, detoxifying and cleansing activities, red clover is making headlines because of the role it can play in establishing hormone balance and fighting cancer. In fact, these familiar roadside blossoms are among the top three sources of phytoestrogens, along with soy and licorice.
Phytoestrogens are plant estrogens that bind with and activate human estrogen receptors. Theyre extremely weak compared with human hormones, but when included in the diet they are able to help normalize estrogen and progesterone levels.
