Organic Alfalfa Leaf Powder
This member of the bean and pea family may indeed deserve the title of "super food;" long used as a premium feed for horses, it is an excellent source of Vitamin K as well as C and E in addition to beta carotene. One of the most ancient of cultivars, it was named by the Arabs, who called it al-faqfaqeh, the "Father of Foods."
Most of us have probably eaten organic alfalfa sprouts on salads or sandwiches, but for therapeutic purposes, organic alfalfa herb is taken in powdered form. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), dried organic alfalfa leaf is used as an appetite stimulant. Among practitioners of Ayurvedic Medicine in India, organic alfalfa leaf has been used as a treatment for gastric ulcer and to relieve the symptoms of arthritis. Among Native Americans and early European settlers, alfalfa was used for everything from boils and menstrual cramps to the treatment of cancer.
While the use of organic alfalfa leaf for treating cancer is debatable and unproven, there is little doubt that it is rich in nutrients. This is because the alfalfa plant itself sinks roots that go over a hundred feet into the ground, allowing it to access nutrients not available to plants with shallower roots.
