Red Clover-EX? is Botaniex’s proprietary Red Clover Extract. The red clover is a herbaceous flowering plant native to Europe, Western Asia, and northwest Africa. It has since been transported, planted, and cultivated in many other regions of the world where it is used and valued for its nitrogen fixation for soil fertility and making sweet teas. Traditionally it has also been used in India as a deobstruent, antispasmodic, sedative, anti-inflammatory, and antidermatosis agent. The plant also contains an estrogen analogue allowing it to moderate symptoms of PMS and menopausal hot flashes. Botaniex provides Red Clover extracts to the following specifications.

Red Clover’s primarily active component are the isoflavones and isoflavonoids which impart on it its sedative, antibiotic, and anti-inflammatory properties. It also contains coumestrol, a phytoestrogen that mimics the effect of estrogen on the body, moderating hormonal effects of PMS and menopause. In fact this natural source of phytoestrogen has been used in some hormone replacement therapies (HRT).
Dietary doses of Red Clover are safe for general consumption, however the estrogen analogue may interfere with hormonal therapies and should not be consumed if hormonal contraceptives are being used. Individuals with a history of breast cancer should not take Red Clover based supplements
Typical dosage is approximately 25-90mg of isoflavins daily.
