What are Red Clover benefits?
Red Clover, also known scientifically as Trifolium pratense, is a dark pink herbaceous plant that belongs to the same family as peas and beans (angiosperm) and is native to Europe, Asia, and North Africa. It is worth noting that the use of red clover is widely used in traditional medicine to treat osteoporosis, arthritis, skin diseases, cancer, respiratory problems (such as asthma), heart disease, and female health problems such as menstrual and menopausal symptoms. However, such benefits of red clover are still being researched by the scientific community.
