YELLOW MELILOT

Yellow Melilot, also known as sweet clover,  ribbed melilot or common melilot is a species of legume and has been used as an herbal remedy for centuries.

Yellow Melilot contains coumarin that converts to dicoumarol (a powerful anticoagulant toxin) when it becomes moldy. This gives it blood thinning properties to improve the flow of blood to the heart. It is used to treat varicose veins and swollen legs.  It helps promote lymphatic drainage and reduces fluid retention, especially in the tissues of the vein wall.

It is also used to treat hypertension and insomnia.
