Description

 

Alfalfa is a perennial herb found on the edges of fields. It is widely cultivated by farmers for livestock feed. It grows to a height of a foot or more. The erect, smooth stem grows from an elongated taproot. The flowers are blue to purple during the summer months. It produces characteristic spirally coiled seed pods.

Some Herbalists believe that alfalfa is the "Big Daddy of 'em all" in terms of nutritional value. The plant is so rich in Calcium that the ashes of its leaves are almost 99% pure Calcium.

Dosage

 

When high cholesterol or diabetes is the problem, take 2 capsules of good quality alfalfa powder with every meal.

For treating infections, make fresh juice from raw alfalfa sprouts whipped up in a blender. Take 4-6 oz of this juice orally or apply to the site of infection.
