Alfalfa – One of the Healthiest Plant Foods on Earth
Natures Life Alfalfa is extremely nutritious. It has a deep, extensive root system which enables the plant to absorb high amounts of nutrients from the soil. For this reason, Alfalfa contains essential vitamins including all B-vitamins as well as A, D, E and K. It’s a great source of iron, folic acid, niacin, biotin, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorous. Alfalfa is also a great source of chlorophyll (which helps detoxify the liver and aid digestion) and is high in both protein and amino acids.
Containing so many nutrients is easy to see why Alfalfa is considered one of the healthiest plant foods on earth, providing an excellent range of nutritious properties for optimal health and wellbeing.
The sheer amount of all vitamins and minerals in this ‘one’ single plant makes the health benefits evident. Vitamins possess antioxidant properties which helps prevent cell damage caused by oxidative stress, and even helps repair any damage to cells that previously occurred. Antioxidants provide an effective way to help support health and wellbeing from within.
Chlorophyll helps to detoxify the body as it connects with toxins and free radicals that are already present in the body, and neutralises them. It has been shown to help eliminate heavy metals that have accumulated in the body, pesticides and industrial pollutants, effectively helping to detoxify the body.
Chlorophyll also possesses anti-inflammatory properties, as it makes the body more alkaline so that it can influence the acidity of bodily fluids, such as urine or blood, and therefore may be used to prevent diseases and inflammation in the cells.
When it comes to Arthritis, sufferers have reported relief from the constant pain when taking alfalfa supplements. It is believed the pain is reduced as the alfalfa neutralises the uric acid in their body. Alongside this benefit, the trace minerals in alfalfa also help the body repair and rebuild joint tissue.
With regular use, Alfalfa has been shown to help promote digestion and reduce most stomach upsets. It contains a great ‘8’ digestive enzymes, so is able to help reduce gas pains, nausea, indigestion as well as appetite.
Alfalfa also contains fibre which has been shown to slow the release of calories from food consumed, thus helping reduce blood sugar levels. A few minerals in alfalfa also have a direct impact upon blood sugar levels including Potassium which the body needs in order to convert blood sugar into glycogen and Chromium is essential for controlling insulin levels.
The saponins found in alfalfa lowers LDL (bad cholesterol) whilst maintaining the HDL (good cholesterol) level. Saponins effects upon cholesterol are well documented. The body uses cholesterol to make bile which is required for digestion. When food is consumed, bile acids are released into your intestines. Saponins have a soap-like quality, so these detergent qualities of allow saponins to bind to bile and prevent its reabsorption. Once joined to saponins, cholesterol leaves the body through waste

The Science behind Natures Life Alfalfa 500mg
Published in Atherosclerosis, 1987, Mölgaard J et al conducted a study titled ‘Alfalfa seeds lower low density lipoprotein cholesterol and apolipoprotein B concentrations in patients with type II hyperlipoproteinemia’.
Here, 15 patients with hyperlipoproteinemia (HLP - an inability to break down lipids or fats in the body, specifically cholesterol and triglyceride), were given 40g of heat prepared alfalfa seeds 3 times daily at mealtimes for 8 weeks with otherwise unchanged diet.
In patients with type II HLP alfalfa treatment caused after 8 weeks a maximal lowering of pre-treatment total plasma cholesterol and low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, 17% and 18% decrease, respectively. Maximal decrease was 26% in total cholesterol and 30% in LDL cholesterol. Once the study was complete, all lipoprotein concentrations returned to pre-treatment levels.
Researchers concluded that alfalfa seeds can be added to the diet to help normalise serum cholesterol concentrations in patients with type II HLP. There are many forms of HLP, and type II is the most common, therefore, results show that for most sufferers of HLP, Alfalfa supplements would be beneficial to help lower LDL cholesterol levels.
