The Latin name of the plant Alfalfa is Medicago Sativa and it’s also a kind of lucerne. Its roots reach 4-5 meters underground which positively results in absorbing more minerals from the soil.
The lucerne seeds have been used as a herbal medicine for more than 1500 years. They’re rich in calcium, protein, vitamin A, B complex vitamins, vitamins K, D and E, phytoestrogens, flavonoids and other biologically active compounds. In the early Chinese medicine, doctors used the Alfalfa leaves as a means that treats issues related to the liver and the digestive system.
Indian healers also used the leaves for dealing with bad digestion. Seeds were used for the making of soothing oils that were very effective for curing boils, wounds and other skin inflammations. Alfalfa has been used also for strengthening the bones and the cartilages as well as the cardiovascular system.
The beneficial Medicago Sativa is a wonderful plant food supplement that will do only good to everybody who uses it in their diet and especially those who suffer from diabetes and anemia. It helps boosting your appetite and raising your body weight (if you’re underweight). The lucerne is taken as a diuretic means that improves the urinating process and helps overcoming problems with the urinary bladder and the alimentary tract.
Alfalfa is appropriate for lowering the bad cholesterol (LDL) levels in the blood. It’s also a great food for women with infants, because the lucerne increases the production of baby milk in the female constitution. It also relieves the premenstrual syndrome symptoms. Some Alfalfa compounds act immune stimulating on people with infections and tumors.
