Dried Alfalfa Leaf

Alfalfa, known as Lucerne and as Lucerne Grass in south Asia , has been used in herbal medicine for over 1,500 years. Alfalfa is high in protein, calcium, plus other minerals, vitamins in the B group, vitamin C, vitamin E, and vitamin K

Traditional Chinese physicians used Alfalfa Leaves to treat disorders of the digestive tract. Ayurvedic physicians of India also prescribed the leaves and flowering tops for poor digestion water retention and arthritis. North American Indians recommended alfalfa to treat jaundice and to encourage blood clotting.

In 19th century medical textbooks Alfalfa was recommended as a tonic for indigestion, dyspepsia, anemia, loss of appetite, and poor assimilation of nutrients. These texts also recommended the Alfalfa plant to stimulate lactation in nursing mothers, and the seeds were made into a poultice for the treatment of boils and insect bites.

Alfalfa is said to have great value as daily food supplement for long-term relief of the pain of arthritis, cardiovascular and digestive health of animals and humans. For use in therapeutic doses, it acts well when combined with dandelion, yucca and licorice. It can be given to animals as an infusion, extracts, or dried bulk herb sprinkled onto food.
