Alfalfa Powder

Why Do I Want To take Alfalfa Powder?

The first thing most people think of when they hear the word “alfalfa” is animal feed. This plant is fed to small pets and large farm animals, so alfalfa isn’t often thought of as appropriate for human consumption. This misconception is common, but it has been used nutritionally and medicinally in cultures around the world for thousands of years.

Alfalfa plants are a lush, dark green colour. This colour comes from copious amounts of chlorophyll in the leaves. These organic compounds are rich in antioxidants including the anti-aging vitamins A, C and E. The chlorophyll helps prevent or treat mild anaemia. It has been shown to help cleanse the blood and improve liver function.

Active compounds in alfalfa’s fibre reduce cholesterol levels and plaque in the blood vessels, reducing the risk of heart disease. While alfalfa is lower in fibre than some plants, alfalfa powder is fully 15% fibre. This fibre, mostly insoluble, helps improve elimination and prevent some kinds of cancers. Alfalfa is also rich in hormone-like substances that not only reduce the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome and menopause, but also increase the production of breast milk in nursing mothers.

Alfalfa leaves can be purchased in bulk and made into infusions, but these can be time consuming to prepare. Powdered alfalfa contains all of the micronutrients in alfalfa infusions, but with plenty of natural fibre and the ease of a packaged product. Alfalfa powder comes in capsules or in bulk to add to drinks or to cook into food.
