Purifies the blood, skin and lymphatic system causing renewed cell vitality while helping to eliminate all infections.
RED CLOVER PLUS™ is a formula of herbs traditionally regarded as excellent alternatives or blood purifiers. Alternatives were commonly defined as herbs which gradually cleansed the blood, as well as the organs and tissues which the body uses for elimination. These herbs were declared to strengthen and build up the nutritional and secretive organs, so that waste material could effectively be removed from the body and nutrients could be absorbed more efficiently. They were not normally believed to initiate rapid cleansing, like the effects of strong laxatives. They are believed to exert their cleansing and nutritional influence gradually, in much the same way that pure water provides cleansing and nutritive properties within the body.
RED CLOVER PLUS™ contains Red Clover, Echinacea Root, Burdock Root, Sarsaparilla Root, Yellow Dock Root, Dandelion Root, Oregon Grape Root, Barberry Root Bark, Prickly Ash Bark, Cayenne, Jamaican Ginger, Marshmallow Root, Pacific Kelp, Bladderwrack and Deodorized Garlic.
Now, let's look at these ingredients in detail!
RED CLOVER (Trifolium pratense) was historically classified as a good alternative, a skin agent, described as excellent in severe body debilitating (wasting) diseases and helpful in relieving coughs and bronchitis. It was said to excel in helping to relieve eczema and psoriasis as well as other chronic skin disorders.
ECHINACEA ROOT (Echinacea, various species) was historically considered one of the exceptional blood purifiers, especially where decay and foul discharges were evident in the body. Echinacea was classified as antiseptic and anti-viral, as well as a vascular dilator (opened blood vessels). It was believed especially useful for helping the body fight boils, abscesses and carbuncles.
BURDOCK ROOT (Arctium lappa) was traditionally classified as an alternative, tonic and diuretic. It was believed to be very helpful in skin eruptions (boils, pimples, rashes), eczema (dryness and flaking), psoriasis, congested kidneys and the lymphatic system. It was historically used as a systemic enhancer/purifier for rheumatism, gout, obesity and Anorexia Nervosa.
SARSAPARILLA ROOT (Smilax, various species) contains the natural saponins, sasaponin and parallin, as well as sitosterol and stigmasterol in both free form and as glycosides. Sarsaparilla was historically valued as an excellent tonic, blood purifier, an aid to rheumatism, arthritis, psoriasis, as well as other skin conditions. It was also considered a valuable diuretic, stimulant, relaxant and cathartic and believed to be of value in restoring sexual potency.
YELLOW DOCK ROOT (Rumes crispus) was traditionally believed to be a valuable blood purifier, as well as a gentle laxative. Its content of up to 40% iron was one reason it was called one of nature's great blood builders and purifiers. Yellow dock is not considered compatible with coffee or tea. It is believed to be very valuable in all skin disorders as well as helpful to the lymphatic system. It was considered especially helpful for psoriasis when it occurred with constipation.
DANDELION ROOT (Taraxacum officianle) was historically believed to be a good diuretic cholagogue (promoting the flow of bile into the intestines), a laxative and helpful in alleviating the discomfort of rheumatism. It was traditionally considered especially useful to help the body beset with gall bladder inflammation, gall stones, jaundice, indigestion coupled with constipation, difficult urination and muscular rheumatism. Dandelion root was used in the past to remove excess water from the body.
OREGON GRAPE ROOT (Mahonia aquifolium) was classified as a superior blood purifier and liver stimulant. It was considered useful in excess catarrh, skin disease, lymphatic conditions and inflammation of the stomach.
BARBERRY ROOT BARK (Berberis vulgaris) is considered one of the most famous Indian remedies and was believed to be one of nature's most serviceable herbs. It was historically considered an excellent tonic, mild laxative and cholagogue (causing bile to flow freely). It was said to remove intestinal obstructions. It was considered useful in fighting gall stones, gallbladder inflammation, jaundice, bilious conditions and was reported to cause spleen contractions .
PRICKLY ASH BARK (Zanthoxylum, various species) was historically classified as general stimulant whose action was slower than cayenne but of a more lasting nature. Said to remove obstructions throughout the body, prickly ash bark had long been classified as a good circulatory stimulant, carminative (relieving gas), tonic and diaphoretic (inducing perspiration).
CAYENNE (Capiscum frutescens) was historically considered as one of the best and most reliable stimulant and carrier herbs. It was considered capable of dissolving mucus and increasing the circulatory force.
JAMAICAN GINGER (Zingiber officinale) has also been historically considered one of the best and most reliable stimulant and carrier herbs. Ginger was believed more diffusive and useful in carrying other herbs into the urinary and reproductive system. Cayenne and ginger are said to increase the effectiveness of other herbs used in combination with them.
MARSHMALLOW ROOT (Althaea officinalis) contains from 15-20% mucilage along with natural steroids and lecithin. Traditionally considered to be one of the best demulcent (soothing and coating herbs) known to herbology. It was also classified as a diuretic, emollient (external soothing agent) and vulnerary (promotes healing of cuts and wounds). Marshmallow was said capable of arresting decay and earned the name mortification root. PACIFIC KELP is considered one of the choice varieties of Kelp. It is incredibly rich in all the nutrients of the ocean, vitamins, minerals, mucilage and particularly iodine. Kelp contains from 0.1% to 0.5% iodine on a dry weight basis. The organically bound iodine in kelp was believed to help stimulate and feed the thyroid gland and thereby regulate metabolism. Kelp is rich in potassium and sodium.
BLADDERWRACK (Fucus vesiculosus) is a type of seaweed found along both the coasts of North America and the Atlantic shores of Europe. It has been widely used in the treatment of goiters and thyroid gland enlargement. It was subsequently found to be essential for the functioning of the thyroid. Bladderwrack, like other seaweeds, contains concentrations of iodine. It is further known for its value in helping to overcome obesity.
DEODORIZED GARLIC (Allium sativum)uses have been medically documented for centuries. It was also a popular remedy for colds, sore throats and coughs. Garlic is also a proven antispasmodic. Research further indicates that it may be effective in lowering cholesterol levels in the blood, in reducing hypertension and as an expectorant in respiratory ailments.
