Alfalfa has been used by the Chinese since the sixth century to treat kidney stones, and to relieve fluid retention and swelling. It is a perennial herb that grows throughout the world in a variety of climates.
The leaves of the alfalfa plant are rich in minerals and nutrients, including calcium, magnesium, potassium, and carotene (useful against both heart disease and cancer).
Alfalfa is a good laxative and a natural diuretic. It is useful in the treatment of urinary tract infections, and kidney, bladder and prostrates disorders. It alkalizes and detoxifies the body, especially the liver, while promoting pituitary gland function. Alfalfa also contains an anti-fungus agent.
Treating with alfalfa preparations is generally without side effects; however the seeds contain a slightly toxic amino acid L-canavanine.
Caution: Alfalfa is not recomended for people with autoimmune disorders.
Pour one cup of fresh boiling water over tea bag, steep 4 to 6 minutes. Lemon or honey may be added.
