Clams and Their Uses
Saltwater clams can help with water build-up (edema), stuffy nose, goiter, and some women's issues. Freshwater clams are helpful for issues like women's bleeding, eye problems, skin issues, and the same women's issues. Clamshell powder from both water types has its uses too, like helping with blood sugar balance and more.
