What I remember most about first being introduced to Alfalfa is that the roots of the plant go very deep down into the soil – 20 feet deep in fact – and pick up nutrients that are not present in many foods today. Alfalfa leaves gather large amounts of chlorophyll through the natural process of photosynthesis. This storehouse of nutrients has many health benefits for your body.

Alfalfa and allergies

Alfalfa is a rich source of minerals, is high in protein, contains eight different digestive enzymes, plus is an excellent source of vitamins A, C, E & K.  Many people take it at the first signs of a cold or flu, or during allergy season – also as a digestive aid or an anti-inflammatory.

Alfalfa has an alkalizing property that gives an antacid effect and discourages antigens that produce allergies and pathogens that result in bacteria, virus, fungus, etc. This means Alfalfa helps alleviate many illnesses.  It is a blood and body cleanser. Alfalfa helps dissolve uric acid that can cause joint inflammation and pain.

Alfalfa is also known for helping to slow cancer growth, improving hormone balance, acts as a blood thinner preventing clots, and can be beneficial for anemic conditions.  Think of Alfalfa as a super healthy salad or green veggie that can help counter the typical American diet that is too acidic – and diseases thrive in acidic environments.
