One 86 people strong survey on perimenopausal women over a period of 8 months who drank red clover tea showed a significant reduction in hot flushes, mood swings, fatigue, anxiety, low libido, and vaginal dryness.

At the 10th AGM of the American Menopausal Society it was reported that 50mg doses of red clover raised HDL cholesterol (the good one!) levels by an average of 28.6%. And more HDL means better heart protection.

Another trial with women receiving 80 mg of red clover, showed that there was a 23% improvement in the elasticity of their arteries. This would explain the traditional use of red clover in China and Russia for heart disease, although decades ago they would not have had the science or research tools to back up their findings.

Red Clover also contains natural tocopherol , a form of vitamin E which some researchers link to reduced risk of heart attack.
