When I think of alfalfa, sprouts come to mind. Those chewy, white strands commonly found on salad bars don’t seem like anything special, but they possess some amazing benefits!
Alfalfa is a plant which sends its roots down deep into the ground and brings up the minerals that are not available on the surface. Alfalfa is rich in vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that play a vital role in supporting healthy bones and in the maintenance of overall health. It contains protein and vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E and vitamin K. It also contains calcium, potassium, carotene, iron and zinc.
High-quality supplements are made from sprout, the leaves or the flowers. Alfalfa juice delivers more than twice the protein of regular alfalfa supplements. Using the entire Alfalfa plant, the juice concentrate is extracted through a process that reduces the fiber content while increasing protein. Alfalfa juice concentrate is packed with nutrients, including beta-carotene, B-vitamins, and vitamins C, E and K. It is also a great source of alkaline mineral supplements, which may support healthy digestion.
So if you’re always picking sprouts off your salad, try an alfalfa supplement instead–and reap some amazing health benefits!
