This important, fat soluble vitamin is found in exceptionally high amounts in Alfalfa and goes straight to your liver where it helps to maintain healthy blood clotting.

Alfalfa contains a plethora of beneficial digestive enzymes which breakdown the various components of food. alfalfa contributes to digestive health, firstly, it is high in the pre-biotics, compounds which fertilize and feed the good bacteria, pro-biotics for a healthy gut. Alfalfa is potassium packed! Alfalfa works wonders for your digestive health through its nutrient content, as an essential electrolyte.

Potassium - aids in the process of eliminating water retention found within the body. This not only reduces swelling caused by water retention, it supports the process of digestion too.

Amylase - which aids in breaking down carbohydrates, starch and sugar, lipase for fat and protase breaks down protein molecules. 

Alfalfa happens to be an organic nitrogen fixer like many legumes. Alfalfa not only provides healthy nutrients for humans, but it helps to mend soil as well and makes an effective green manure for providing nutrients to poor soil.
