Organic Alfalfa Leaf Powder Benefit and Uses:
1. Reduction of Serum Cholesterol
Coronary heart disease is such a terrible health problem to be faced with.Hundreds of studies have found that high levels of cholesterol in the circulating blood are the main reason for the development of blocks in the arteries that are supplying the cardiac muscle.
2. Control of Diabetes and Obesity
As an added benefit of its fat-binding properties, alfalfa drastically reduces the fat being processed by our metabolism, thus aiding in longterm weight reduction.
Its high digestible fiber content also ensures a feeling of satiety which can reduce our hunger and also our obesity. All of this indirectly benefits patients suffering from diabetes and obesity.
3. Relief from Constipation
The presence of digestive fiber and digestive enzymes in alfalfa is of humongous benefit to our digestion.Basically, if you eat a lot of it, your bowel movements will improve drastically. For chronically constipated individuals, alfalfa is heaven sent.
4. A Great Source of Protein
Alfalfa sprouts and dried leaf powder are rich sources of easily digestible protein and are therefore a great source of protein for vegans and vegetarians.
5. A Source of Essential Vitamins
Alfalfa is perhaps one of the few foods that can take care of most of your body’s vitamin requirements.The phytonutrients in the plant include phytoestrogens, saponins, flavonoids, alkaloids, coumarins, phytosterols, amino acids, vitamins, terpenes and digestive enzymes.
6. Cardiovascular Health
Alfalfa contains certain compounds that prevent the formation of atherosclerotic plaques and clots.Alfalfa also provides the body with flavonoids, which help in the relaxation of the vascular smooth muscles, thereby rendering them more pliant and thus less susceptible to clogging.This directly decreases the chances of a cerebrovascular accident and myocardial infarction. In short, it does wonders for your cardiovascular health.
7. Alleviating Kidney Problems and Relieving Fluid Retention
Sluggish kidneys are known to improve with regular use of alfalfa. In fact, it has been traditionally used as a diuretic and many herbalists prescribe it in kidney and prostate ailments.
The thinking is that it reduces the blood urea levels and improves creatinine clearance. This has a cascading effect in relieving fluid retention in patients, which in turn improves overall health.
8. Hormonal Benefits for Women
Alfalfa benefits women deeply as it’s an extremely rich source of phytoestrogens.If you’re not sure what those are, phytoestrogens are chemicals which are functionally similar to the estrogens produced by the female body; a regular use of alfalfa provides for a hormonal balance in premenopausal and menopausal women.
