What is Red Clover and what does it do?
Red Clover (Trifolium pratense) is a perennial plant grown in Europe, Britain and throughout the northeastern United States. Red clover is one of the oldest crops cultivated as forage for the feeding of livestock and horses. The ancient Greeks, Romans and Celts revered this plant. Its three leaves reminded early Christians of the Trinity. Red clover has a rich and long history in American medicine. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, this common plant was a main ingredient in medicines known as Trifolium compounds. Modern research has shown that Red Clover, like other legumes, contains a group of phytoestrogen compounds called isoflavones.
Phytoestrogens are naturally occurring compounds found in Red clover and other plants that are structurally related to human estrogens. Researchers have found that isoflavones may act as anti-estrogens and actually compete with estradiol at the cell binding site. This characteristic and others may be responsible for Red Clover’s ability to support healthy estrogen levels during menopause. The four major isoflavones identified in Red clover are Genistein, Biochanin A, Diadzein and Formonnetin.
What is the purpose of adding Black Cohosh to this formula?
Black Cohosh is believed to help to buffer women’s estrogen levels without actually providing estrogens or phytoestrogens. It may act to normalize the production of estrogen by influencing the systems regulating this hormone.
