Photos of Trifolium pratense, Red Clover.

Trifolium pratense, Red Clover is traditionally used as a blood purifier, diuretic, general tonic, folk cancer remedy, to relieve spasms associated with asthma and bronchitis, and to treat skin sores and ulcers. Red clover contains an interesting group of phytoestrogenic isoflavones, including genistein, diadzen, formononetin and biochanin A, among others. Red clover is one of the richest sources of these compounds, with as much as 5 g of estrogenic isoflavones per 100 g dry weight of the herb.
