(NaturalNews) Red clovers make beautiful flowers that can now be found just about anywhere in the US although they originally came from Europe, Africa and Northern Asia. The plants are believed to help soils by adjusting their nitrogen levels, thus making them ideal for guaranteeing better soil fertility and overall quality.

They are a great source of important nutrients such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, niacin, thiamine and vitamin C. They are also considered to be a reasonably high source of isoflavones, providing very beneficial phytoestrogens that tend to mimic women's estrogens by helping to minimize the unpleasant effects caused by menstruation and most importantly menopause.

The red clover has long been used internally just as much as externally to treat ailments. It can often be found packaged into various balms in order to topically treat skin conditions such as eczema psoriasis, sores and burns. It does have very potent anti-inflammatory, pain relieving and even blood purifying or thinning properties, thanks to its active substances such as eugenol, myricetin, biochanin-A, caffeic acid, chlorogenic acid, coumarin, formononetin, genistein and isorhamnetin.

Tests show that red clover can also improve bone density

Prior uses of the herb in the past had already established red clover's ability to provide a better blood flow, mainly by thinning the blood which therefore diminishes the chances of ever developing thrombosis in veins or arteries.

The real surprise came from results obtained in a research project that had the intention of finding out how red clover coped with changes induced by menopause. Back in 2009, scientists from the University of Singapore tested the effects of red clover after surgically inducing menopause on a group of rabbits. They immediately noted that the herb's isoflavones contributed to major improvements in not only blood flow and tissue integrity, but most importantly bone density. The belief now is that isoflavones could very well be a favorable alternative to replace synthetic estrogens when aiming for similar results.

The red clover's isoflavones are believed to be responsible for relieving women of estrogen-related symptoms such as breast pain that for instance occurs with PMS. It is also the belief that isoflavones can help limit the possibility of developing a cancer around the lining of the uterus. Tests conducted on approximately 1000 women demonstrated that red clover can interfere with the actions of a specific enzyme known to encourage further development of endometrial cancer.

Similar effects seem to take place with men's prostates as red clover has also shown to somewhat limit the enlargement of the gland. The BPH symptoms, considered by the medical establishment as a normal part of aging, can sometimes be quite disturbing for men. Red clover brings new hope but definitely needs to be investigated further.
