Alfalfa Leaf - the "Father of all Foods." Helps to eliminate bloating and water retention. This excellent source of nutrients and digestive aid will help boost a sluggish appetite, relieve constipation and the swelling that often accompanies rheumatism and arthritis. It is most helpful in treating kidney and urinary tract infection and will help detoxify the body, especially the liver. Alfalfa Leaf's phytoestrogenic compounds are believed to be helpful in treating menopausal symptoms.
Alfalfa is a good natural herbal laxative that helps relieve constipation. Further, it is also a natural diuretic that promotes urine flow and is often used to manage urinary tract infections, kidney infections and eliminate excess retained water.
Alfalfa is especially useful for replacing vitamin K that is depleted during treatment with a wide variety of drugs, including antibiotics.
Alfalfa acts as a blood purifier and has helped many arthritis sufferers. The action as an herbal detoxifier and blood purifier has been found to be beneficial for a variety of illnesses, including liver disorders, breath odor, infections, disorders of the bones, joints and skin ailments.
Alfalfa is said to help lower cholesterol and inhibit the formation of atherosclerotic plaques (by blocking cholesterol's absorption into the body from the intestines), balance blood sugar (especially when taken with manganese) and promote healthy pituitary gland function.
Alfalfa is considered an immune-system stimulant that promotes normal blood clotting (and may interfere with blood thinning medication); its vitamin K content helps manage bleeding gums and nosebleed, but does not interfere with normal circulation. The bioflavonoids found in Alfalfa are believed to build capillary strength.
Alfalfa Leaf Herbal Supplement should not be taken by those who have autoimmune problems (lupus, etc.), nor should it be taken by pregnant women.
