Red Clover may be seen as a "weed" to some people, but the truth is it's been used to improve the quality of human life for centuries. It has been employed in ancient Chinese medicine for respiratory infections and congestion. Herbalists also use it for coughs, to speed wound healing, and relieve water retention. It's being studied today for possible benefits to those suffering from heart disease, diabetes, menopausal symptoms, and prostate enlargement.
How can a plant benefit human health? When we peer beneath what is visible by the naked eye we can begin to understand this question. Herbs like Red Clover produce what's called phytochemicals. They are studied by researchers around the globe for their medicinal value. You don't hear about this on television, or even at the doctors office. The facts are out there tho, waiting for you to discover them.
We've all heard of coumarins, right? Red Clover contains them as well. They are pharmacological chemicals that are found recurring all throughout nature. Sense coumarins have a poor solubility in water, it's suggest not to make a tea, but to instead to make a tincture by soaking the the herb in alcohol for a month or more. Trifolium pratense as it's scientifically referred to as, also contains coumestrol, isoflavones and others. These are highly sophisticated chemicals created by using resources made available by the ecosystem, in cooperation with the schematics located in the genes of the plants DNA ( Deoxyribonucleic acid )
There are several preparations methods that can be used for preparing Red Clover to be used as a medicine. A tea can still be beneficial for human health, even tho it won't dissolve all constituents.. It's just that different pharmacological constituents have different solubilities. You can note the effects of the differing preparation methods and discover which works best for what. Another method is capsules, which can be eaten to allow the stomach to digest the phytochemicals. Some prefer capsules because they feel it allows them to digest the most compounds possible. Remember though, alcohol can extract chemicals that water can not, and our stomachs don't always absorb everything, like THC for example, without fat solubility.
