Red Clover

How it supports your body

Red clover has been widely consumed in teas and in salads for hundreds of years. As a rich source of antioxidants and polyphenols, red clover is particularly interesting because it has a high concentration of isoflavones. These are particularly effective phytoestrogens that have been shown to help with menopausal symptoms.

The 4 different isoflavones found in red clover have been shown to help not just with physical symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats and mood changes, but to even help maintain bone density during menopause. And because it has been so widely studied, we also know that it is safe to take.
