Three benefits of Red Clover

Blood purifier

  • Red clover is known as one of the world's oldest and most common natural treatments for all varieties of cancer in men or women anywhere on the body.

 

  • Red clover cancer benefits come from Genistein, a biochemical in the plant that has the ability to prevent tumors from developing the blood supplies they need to survive, thus starving them and killing them.

  • Contains another class of anticancer phytoestrogen compounds called coumestans.

 

Hormone Balancer

The hormonal impacts of red clover are significant, particularly for women. The isoflavones found in red clover mimic estrogen, so for those women who may struggle to maintain estrogen levels, red clover can help to balance their hormonal shifts and prevent mood swings, as well as reduce breast pain. This applies for women undergoing PMS as well as menopause, as both of these times can cause dangerous or unpredictable fluctuations in hormone levels.

"If we neglect to do that which is within the reach of nearly every family, and ask the Lord to relieve pain when we are too indolent to make use of these remedies within our power, it is simply presumption. The Lord expects us to work in order that we may obtain food. He does not propose that we shall gather the harvest unless we break the sod, till the soil, and cultivate the produce. Then God sends the rain and the sunshine and the clouds to cause vegetation to flourish. God works and man cooperates with God. Then there is seedtime and harvest. God has caused to grow out of the ground herbs for the use of man, and if we understand the nature of these roots and herbs, and make a right use of them, there would not be a necessity of running for the doctor so frequently, and people would be in much better health than they are today.” -- Letter 35, 1890.  {MM 230.3}
