Monthly Essentials: March

Did you know there are two kinds of Clover? Both red clover and white clover can be found in Europe, Central Asia, Northern Africa, North America and Australia and has been used as a medical herb for many generations. Of the two breeds, the red clover has a stronger consistency of valuable nutrients that make this wee green leafed plant a restorative gem!

Through out history this lucky little flora has shown healing help with the following issues:

Heart Disease 
Lowering Cholesterol
Improving Blood Circulation
Reduce the Possibility of Blood Clots
Reduce the Possibility Arterial Plaques
Hot Flashes
Kidney Stones
Quitting Smoking
Detoxifies Lymph
Detoxifies Lungs
Detoxifies Liver
Detoxifies Kidneys

This support has much to do with the fact that red clover is a source of many valuable nutrients including calcium, chromium, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, thiamine, silicium, vitamins A, E, C, B2, B3 and vitamin C.

There is some preliminary evidence that clover may stop cancer cells from growing or can kill cancer cells in test tubes. It's been proposed that red clover may help prevent some forms of cancer, such as prostate and endometrial cancer. Until further research is done, red clover cannot be recommended to prevent cancer - but the research is being done to see if more help for cancer can be found in clover!
