Nutrition and health benefits of eating red clover sprouts:

  • Red clover is considered to be one of the richest sources of isoflavones, which are water-soluble chemicals that act like oestrogens. Red Clover is therefore used for hot flashes/flushes, PMS, breast enhancement and breast health as well as lowering cholesterol, improving urine production and improving circulation of the blood.
  • Red clover is also a source of many valuable nutrients including calcium, chromium, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, thiamine, and vitamin C.
  • Protein 25%.
  • Abundant anti-oxidant levels – these significantly increase your energy levels, and provide anti-aging benefits for the skin.
  • Red Clover is high in  phytochemicals, particularly genistein, which has been found to prevent the formation of new blood vessels in cancer tumours, impeding further growth.
  • Clover sprouts are the main dietary source of isoflavones, above any other superfood. Studies have shown that isoflavones can significantly reduce the risk of cancer.
