Clover also contains healthy levels of calcium, potassium and magnesium, the last two of which could help to remedy water retention in the body.
Crimson clover microgreens are most commonly associated with sometimes being lucky and with having blue/purple flowers. More importantly, when clover is added to meals it can provide several different health benefits:
- protection against free radicals due to its antioxidant properties;
- reduction in the speed of skin aging;
