Red clover is rich in flavonoids: daidzein and genistein, these isoflavones have phyto-oestrogenic (oestrogen-like) properties hence its popularity and its indications on the symptoms of peri-menopause, menopause and menopausal hot flushes.
Several studies on isoflavone glycoside "genistein" have demonstrated anticancer activities; inhibition of cell proliferation angiogenesis in vitro. These studies demonstrate its affinity effects on alpha and beta estrogen receptors; there could be both agonist and antagonistic actions, depending on endogenous estrogen levels. Other studies have shown its positive effects on prostate cancer. Despite these studies, there is misunderstanding as to its use in women who have or have had cancer of the uterus, breast or ovaries. (Jarred et al. 2002, Cassady et al. 1988 et McCaleb et al. 2000, Fotsis et al. 1995).
Red clover is also rich in minerals (calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium ...) these minerals have alkalizing properties (reduces acidity).
It would have anticoagulant properties (theoretical) due to coumarin it contains, it is recommended not to associate with anticoagulant drugs.
Studies have also shown its positive effects on the cardiovascular system, it would help reduce high levels of cholesterol and triglycerides (Geller & Studee 2006). Its isoflavones help reduce high blood pressure levels. (Atkinson et al. 2004, Teede et al. 2003).
