Thanks for your time guys. Any information would be entirely appreciated.
Available clinical evidence does not show that red clover is effective in treating or preventing cancer, menopausal symptoms, or any other medical conditions. It may also increase the risk of excessive bleeding in some people. Some of its extracts (isoflavones) are being tested to determine whether they help symptoms of menopause or reduce the level of bad cholesterol in the blood. So far, results are mixed. Studies looking at the extracts’ effectiveness against prostate enlargement and prostate cancer have begun. Other researchers are looking at whether it will help blood pressure and insulin resistance in diabetics and osteoporosis in women. Early findings suggest it may merit further testing.
How is it promoted for use?
Proponents claim that red clover is useful for relieving menopausal symptoms because it contains chemicals that are similar to the hormone estrogen. They also claim that the herb suppresses coughs (particularly whooping cough) and slows blood clotting. According to some practitioners, people who take prescription blood-thinning medications, such as warfarin (Coumadin), may be able to reduce their dosage by taking red clover supplements. Other supporters claim that red clover is effective for treating cancers of the breast, ovaries, and lymphatic system, although available scientific evidence does not support this. A few claim that the herb acts as an antibiotic, an appetite suppressant, and a relaxant. Some believe that red clover preparations can be used to help speed wound healing and ease chronic skin conditions such as psoriasis.
