Medicinal Uses of Alfalfa
"Alfalfa eliminates retained water, relieves urinary and bowel problems, and helps in treating those recovering from narcotic and alcohol addiction. It is also useful for rebuilding the body after serious or prolonged illness or weakness, stimulates milk production, eases morning sickness (by helping to balance the hormones), for cleansing the blood, and to lower cholesterol levels. Alfalfa is used in treating anemia, gout, arthritis, fatigue, insomnia, kidneys, peptic ulcers, pituitary problems, stimulating the appetite, regulating diabetes, and for building general health. The Chinese have used alfalfa to treat kidney stones for centuries. Alfalfa sprouts contain more protein than corn and wheat, and is one of the richest sources of vitamins and trace minerals, such as the necessary selenium, being high in vitamins A, D, E, and K.

Studies have shown that this plant contains constituents that may trigger a destruction of carcinogens built up in the liver during the digestive process. It aids in removing toxins from the body as well as neutralizing acids, which of course makes it an aid to digestion."

by Rev. Dr. Lisa Waltz, ND, DD

"Alfalfa in all of its forms can trigger attacks in those who suffer from lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, so it is best to avoid this herb if you have either of these ailments. The cause is apparently one of the active constituents, an alkaloid known as conavanine, in conjunction with the amino acid L-canavanine, present in greatest concentration as the alfalfa is in the sprout stage, and lessens as the alfalfa matures. I would certainly advise anyone with lupus or other immune-deficient diseases to avoid alfalfa sprouts, and to use the mature form only as a mild infusion, discontinuing immediately if there is any sort of reaction. Lupus is a disease that acts differently within each person who contracts it, so to err on the side of caution is the safest route. There are other sprouts that are just as healthy for those of you who suffer from these illnesses that do not contain this constituent.

There are four isoflavones in alfalfa that produce an estrogen response in animals and humans, which can disrupt reproductive cycles when ingested in high amounts, especially when the whole fresh plant is consumed (as with livestock feeding). These responses do make this plant a possible choice for helping with the problems of premenstrual syndrome and menopause."

***Alfalfa seed is tiny and it helps to have a biological inoculate. So, this seed is coated with a biological legume inoculate.
