Cytoplan Alfalfa is a leguminous, perennial plant, grown commonly as a ground cover crop in arid regions of Africa. In Britain we generally only consume the sprouts, to make use of the concentrated nutrients contained within the seeds.
The main attribute of the alfalfa leaf is the vitamin K content (20,000 - 40,000 i.u. per 100g). However, its nutritional benefits do not stop here. Also contained in the foliage are vitamins B6, D, E and U, along with beta carotene and several essential enzymes.
The primary function of vitamin K is its role in the blood clotting mechanism and it is therefore valuable for protecting against haemorrhage in some individuals. Alfalfa is also valuable for relieving digestive upsets such as indigestion and over-acidity. It also helps to maintain a healthy gut wall and acts as an appetite stimulant.
