Alfalfa Leaf, Cut
[H(16)ALFC]
$0.00

Medicago Sativa, or Alfalfa Leaf, somewhat resembles clover, with clusters of small purple flowers, and is quite a hearty plant, resilient to droughts and frequently relied upon as a source of food for cattle. Indeed, it is one of the highest yielding harvest plants, frequently utilized in hay fields. In human consumption, it is most often used in salads and sandwiches. The tender shoots are also often eaten, serving as a nutritious leafy vegetable. Traditionally, Alfalfa has been found in Chinese medicine as an aid in problems that involve the digestive track as well as the kidneys. Similarly, Hindu Ayrvedic physicians have utilized Alfalfa leaves in treating poor digestion, as well as using the plant to create a poultice for boils. They had also thought of it as a potent aid in treating arthritis and water retention. More commonly these days it is viewed as a dietery supplement, as which it is most frequently taken as a tablet, powder, or tea. In modern holistic medicine, Alfalfa leaf has been suggested as a supplement for anemia and diabetes, and has also been used to aid in stimulating appetite and weight gain. It is also sometimes used in treating indigestion and bladder problems, as a diuretic. Othrwise it is said to help with increasing lactation and soothing the symptoms of Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS).
