Alfalfa Leaf Organic
In the Middle East, alfalfa leaf is known as the father of all herbs. Alfalfa is one of the most nutritious plants on earth, its leaves rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, beta-carotene, vitamins A, B-12, C, D, E and K. The leaves are rich in vitamin K. Alfalfa has also been found to contain all eight essential amino acids. Alfalfa is one of the highest fibrous herbs in existence and we are unable to digest its raw leaves. For centuries, Native Americans ground its seeds to be used as flour or boiled its leaves and ate them like greens.
Use 2-5 grams (1-2 teaspoons) per serve. Brew in a pot of boiled water for ten minutes, strain and pour. Add sweetener as needed.
